    How about:

    1. Mara captures Luke in the book Choices of One.
    2. Luke gets the guts to kiss Mara after he gives her his father's lightsaber.
    3. Write a fic with all the lead characters are original characters.
    4. Mara shows up on Byss to save Luke instead of Leia.
    5. Write a Ben Skywalker centered fic.
    6. Write the death of a main character.
    7. Write a fic where Kyp actually gets the girl.
    8. Jaina marries Jag but she still has that creepy joiner connection with Zekk. :p

    I would go with a challenge more general and not era or character specific.

    - a character does something that they have no skill or experience with; Leia cooking or Han taking care of plants. .
    - training.... any kind of training, any character(s).
    - foot injuries; any time, any species, anywhere.

    Ah, foot injuries. That would be an easy one. I can even BS-science my way around explaining how a landspeeder running over your foot would still damage it.

    Heeeeey, haven't seen this thread in awhile! Hi, y'all!!! :D Maybe so as not to be so character or time driven the challenge can just be about twists of fate or something.

    1. Dealing with teenagers. o_O I know that is always a drama in my house.
    2. Having a lead character doing something totally OOC and then find a way to justify that characters actions. (For example: Start with a scene with...oh I don't know...Luke slapping Mara. Then the next scene is something like: Two hours earlier and then you have to show how that isn't really out of character. Like there was a poisonous bug on her cheek and Luke swatted it to save her life.)

    While we're brainstorming... write a short AU fic using our characters in a historical setting.

    I've had fun with this in my past Drabble threads.

    I like it when there are challenges to use specific words in the story. Makes me think harder. I agree, nothing character specific.

    I wouldn't mind a good challenge! I need to dust off the writing skillz.

    Keep the character specific challenges to the character fan threads, please. Otherwise, it's far too limiting.

    Hello Over 30's....

    With the transition, we no longer have access to the front page and subject line of the Over 30 thread so it's not possible to let our members know what is going on in that way. Is this important enough to close the thread and begin an Over 30 Writer's club 3.0? What are your thoughts on the matter? Let's have a discussion.

    Really? I know in my truncated fanfic I was still able to go back to the first post and change the subject line. The More Options button didn't bring you to the subject line edit?

    Like Jedi_Lover said, you should still be able to do it, though it's not in the same place as it used to be. But if you want to have this thread locked and start a new version, that's fine too! :)

    I can still edit my art topic without a problem. If you right-click the edit link and open it in a new tab, it takes you directly to the edit page where you can edit the topic title.

    Thanks everyone. The edit option IS working :)though the topic title is still being stubborn. As long as most are okay with this, we'll keep the 2.0 version for now.
