    Yeah, I didn't know how to do a link like that, because I'm too lazy to mess with it right now....

    But I did one. So....yeah. :D

    Is it wrong that Jack Bauer puts me in the holiday spirit?

    Lithiniel -- it's really simple:

    Story Goes here

    Take the URL of the page where your fic is on and put it where I have URL written. :)

    Here's mine: Marvin's Christmas Eve.

    And guess what the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is crossed with... *snigger*

    Oh dear, I'm an odd child. 8-}

    Exactly, Lithiniel, exactly. [face_laugh]

    So, Nat, can all three of us get colours for participating? [face_batting] I promise I won't do solar power!

    I did one too! No rhyming though and since it's a cross-over with Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale 'The little match-girl', I'm afraid it isn't funny.... [face_worried]

    Matches


    Merry Christmas!

    Thanks, Seremela!

    The prizes will remain a secret until the challenge is over [face_devil]

    Remember, you still have until the clock strikes midnight boardtime on Wednesday night to write an entry!

    As it so happens, we decided to do just that :) Everyone gets 72 hours of colors. I'm promoting you now, but if there are issues because of the weekend or because of post-holiday travel, PM me and we can work something out. I'm flexible as long as you take your 72 hours sometime in the next week.

    By the way, in a sort of official post-challenge way (and to go along with the suggestion thread) what did you guys think of the challenge? Was there anything you woud have changed? And do yu have any suggestions for future challenges?

    Hmm... maybe change the "one of the fandoms has to be a Holiday fandom" rule? It was okay to work with, but I think there's more flexibility if you still let it be ANY fandom. Afterall, it's pretty easy to make things Holiday-y without having to use a Holiday fandom.

    For example, mine doesn't really feel all that Christmas-y even though I used How the Grinch Stole Christmas. :p

    Well, you can probably guess which rule put me off. I had lots of ideas, but none that felt like I could wring 2000 words out of 'em. [Most either didn't gel or were scenes in search of a plot.]

    [face_hypnotized] COLORS!? Wow, never had colors before, this should be fun :D

    Personally I loved that one of the AUs had to be a Christmas story or movie, because it made me write something I would NEVER EVER have thought of otherwise.

    But I second Drabbi-Wan_Kenobi on the word amount.


    EDITED to say that me like :D. And that this weekend is fine.

    Hrm. As a counterpoint to the general consensus, I'd like to say first off that the holiday fandom part really made this challenging. Perhaps the idea was not fully expressed, in that I'm sure I wasn't the only one who was a little confused as to what constituted a "Holiday fandom". Once I caught on, however, that just made it a little more fun.

    The word limit had me worried a bit, because I didn't realize how little space 10k words actually takes up. But at first, I wasn't certain, either, that I'd have even 2k words on the subject.

    All in all, it was a lot of fun. It was an opportunity to do something a little different, and helped get the creative juices flowing toward other things, as well. (I am now inspired to write a full-length 24 fanfic... lol.) Looking forward to this year's holiday challenge, now, too! :D
