    I KNEW YOU WOULD PICK 14 BECAUSE IT WAS LONELY up there.

    Somebody should pick the remaining two, totally.

    "Oh, nice one. This one could be a 1.5k or 2k word story." It's now twice that and still not done...

    If I'm not wrong, you have not written any super-long things? If so, this may end up being your first!

    I haven't any idea what I want to do with the poem I received. It did occur to me when I was reading through the recent posts on this thread that I could do a gender reversal (since the genders of the speaker and the person being referred to, as in JadeLotus's poem, are quite obvious), but the idea doesn't actually inspire me. I do know that I don't want to go with an easy and rather painfully obvious interpretation, but that is all I have figured out.

    I'm surrendering #8 for someone else to take. I never did come up with an idea on how to use it, and my muse has moved on to other things.

    All righty doo! All the poems have now been handed out, so we're just waiting for the finished products now (and have gotten some mighty fine ones already :cool:).

    As always, if you have any questions about your poem, or would like to brainstorm or otherwise just check in, feel free to use this thread or to PM me. :)

    Hi everyone,

    It's been a long time, hasn't it? I hope no one minds my resurrecting this thread in the interest of a bit of housekeeping. So far, there are fifteen other authors besides myself who have signed up but haven't contributed a story yet. Because the boards only allow ten tags per post, I'll list the first ten here and the remaining five in the next post (following the same order as the OP):

    Jade_Pilot
    SeparatistSympathizer
    Chyntuck
    divapilot
    Lazy K
    K'Tai qel Letta-Tanku
    whiskers
    Kahara
    Viridian-Maiden
    Ceillean

    If you are on this list, please let me know whether or not you are still interested in eventually contributing something (and again, there's no real deadline). If you aren't, no hard feelings—I'll simply make your number available again in case someone else would like to take it. Anyone I don't hear from within a week of this post (i.e., on or before Friday, October 7) will be removed from the list, and their number will be made available again. (Note that there is still no deadline for the challenge itself.)

    And if you are still interested in participating, I'm here to answer any questions and to provide further prompts, guidance, etc., if they would help.

    Thanks so much! :)

    I had something mostly done last year, but it got lost in the hard drive crash. Go ahead and recycle mine.

    I'm still in, and it's going to be a loooooong fic. It's lucky there's no deadline though :p

    I have a page of handwritten notes, so I might still manage a finished story for this one of these days. Or one of these years. It's a good thing there isn't a deadline.

    Well, I had an idea back when I started but it didn't really pan out. Would like to wait and see if another plot bunny occurs, though! :)

    Oddly enough, I had inspiration road-blocks with my poem because it covers themes that I tend to write about a lot in one of my NSW fandoms, and I was unsure of how to tackle it again. BUT, looking at it after some time has passed, I think I have a new angle I can take. So I want to hold on to mine. :)

    Thanks for keeping this going, though, Chyntuck! [:D]

    All right, hope no one minds my putting out one more quick heads-up to those people from whom I haven't yet heard:

    Jade_Pilot
    SeparatistSympathizer
    Lazy K
    K'Tai qel Letta-Tanku
    Viridian-Maiden
    Ceillean
    SabyneAmberle
    JadeLotus
    Lady_Skywalker87

    Today, folks, is the day to let me know whether you would like to continue in this challenge or not. Please let me know if you would like to hold on to your number or poem, or if you would like me to make it available again. (Which I shall do if I don't hear from you.) Many thanks! :)
