    Well, I've finished my Dare.:D

    Much Ado About...Nothing

    I have a feeling that whoever gave me that Dare ended up torturing CloneCaptainRex more than they did me. Rex was the one who beta-ed it for me and he had to pick through what was Old English and what was me accidentally throwing some German words in there instead.[face_blush] Anyway, thank you, Dare-giver!:)

    I haven't started writing mine yet, either. It's in the planning stages, though.

    I'm taking the "If I ignore it long enough, it won't exist" approach. It's not working. It's still there, and it's still not written. This is bad. Hmm. Where's my brother when I need him?!

    :( I haven't read a story yet that responds to the dare I submitted. I hope that whoever has it completes the story in time. I'd love to see what someone did with it. :)

    Is this open to people who initially decided not to submit a dare, Trace? Because if so, I'll snag it. :)

    It's a dare that was issued, but the author won't have time to write it and gave it back. I'll PM it to you. :D

    Alrighty, mine's done! [face_dancing]

    "There After"

    And the DARE was:

    Jag gets to suffer.
    Trying to protect her twins from a sneak assassination attempt, Jaina dies.
    Jag has to deal with the fact that his second half is gone forever.

    He grieves. He grieves BADLY. In a believable way that suits the character.
    Make him want revenge, make him drink -- anything to show that he's miserable. Really, really miserable. Poor Jaggy.
    Write a scene where he has to explain to his kids (I'll leave it up to you how old they are and if they can use the Force yet), that their Mom won't be coming back.

    Make this as angsty and heart breaking as you can. But believable.
    The last sentence in the story should be "Goodbye. For Now."

    Here's mine:

    The Adventures of Threepio on Endor!

    The Dare: C-3PO has stated that he despises space travels and adventures. The challenge is to write a story from Threepio?s POV in the style of an Indiana Jones style adventure. And YES, he is the leader of the group which should include R2-D2, Leia, Luke, Han and Chewy.

    Must use the following genres: romance, drama, horror, humor, and tragedy.
    Must use the following words: tymurgy, turophile, brouhaha

    Wow, lots of fun stuff to read. Nobody's done my dare yet, darn it. Oh well, it wasn't all that great anyway. :p I still want to know who came up with mine so I can congratulate them on how ingenious it was....

    Only one more day - boy am I glad I got mine done way early...

    I know what you mean, Storms. Mine hasn't been done yet either. I'm thinking it was too complex for 2500 words.

    Can I tell the person who got my dare that they got my dare?

    Nice. I think mine was too lame, personally. In retrospect, I could have made it lots wackier. This was my first time on a challenge like this (actually, it was my first challenge; I'm a lurker, mainly), so I didn't know how cruel and unusual it was fair to make it. But, that's what next year is for. Seriously - I actually have it written down in a notebook from when I was writing a response to my dare...
