    I didn't know what a funfetti cake was, so I googled it...I'd say that it would go with vengeance sprinkles.

    On the other hand the thing with "replacing sprinkles with pasta shapes" in the soup ad was deliberately nonsensical. ;)

    Minor update. Retconned the number of purple-eyed Chiss surviving in the Legends New Republic era from less than 50 to 1,000 (still a small number in a galaxy of trillions). Also added a footnote/rumor about Thrawn being sympathetic to what the purple-eyed Chiss have suffered, what with him being an exile himself as well as a culture connoisseur.

    Welcome, my friend. Climb aboard the ANGRY MACE™ train.

    And yes, it has to be all caps. So the proper label for your product would be ANGRY MACE™ Funfetti Cake.

    Yes, @Gamiel, you are absolutely right, and thanks so much for posting this reminder—I'm really sorry I've been so delinquent with this sock. [face_blush] Two days till the Fanon Horror Challenge comes due, and then voting will begin. There are three excellent entries so far, and I encourage all and sundry to give them a read.

    Also, one fanon post update to announce for December: @Cowgirl Jedi 1701 has updated her food and drink post.

    Thanks again, all, for bearing with me! :)

    @Gamiel - Would you be able to compile all of your Munto Codru and Codru-Ji stuff in a single post? I would love it. Thanks. :)

    Fanon regarding the planet Munto Codru and its native species the Codru-Ji

    * Munto Codru to me is a rather traditional world with a feudal like ruling system spanning the entire globe. Much of the conflicts between the noble families is highly ritualized and it is seldom anybody gets killed, as long as everybody follow the proper procedure – something that make aliens a bit of a danger since they don’t know better and can endanger everyone around them by well-meaning acts.
    * My image of Munto Codru is highly influenced by romanticized/fairytale medieval Europe: movies like Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast; Cinderella; comics like Prince Valiant and the art by painters like Ivan Bilibin, Gustaf Tenggren, and most of the visual adaptations of Tolkien’s Rivendell and Gondor.
    * Codru-Ji have a preference for animal drawn vehicle even if they have no problem to have the vehicle levitating on repulses.
    * The main part of Munto Codru’s civilization are focused around the grand castles and clan keeps and the cultivated land around them, between those areas exist large parts of uncontrolled wilderness were nature with all its wild beast have been allowed to roam free.
    * The Codru-Ji have one known Force tradition: Munto Codru's wild wizards


    Animals on Munto Codru
    * The planets's alpha predator is the Dragonne.

    Pegasus: Munto Codru’s pegasus are horse-like animals with three toes and large leather wings. They prefer to live in open areas or on cliff sides since they need a running start or a jump from a certain height to get into the air. In the wild do they live in harems of one stallion and two to seven mares, and additional foal, that are usually lead by the oldest mare or in same-sex youth groups of two to ten young stallions or mares.
    They are domesticable and are often used by the codru-ji as mounts but can not carry heavier weights while in flight.

    Aaand now... I am pleased to announce that VOTING HAS BEGUN for the Fanon HORROR Challenge.

    There are three stories in the running, all of which are excellent and guaranteed to induce shivers, willies, heebie-jeebies, etc.:
    The Mists of Mehr by Chyntuck
    The Vaults of Cromm-Crúaich by Gamiel
    S.R.A.K.—Serpent-Related Ass Kicking by Sith-I-5

    Here's what to do: PM your vote to this sock by 11:59 pm PST on Thursday, January 11, 2018. (So you'll have about two weeks to read and vote.)

    Here's what not to do: vote more than once, vote for yourself, vote using a sock as well as your normal account, vote for something that's not on this list, etc., etc. I'm sure you all know the drill by now.

    Here's when the winner will be announced: on or about January 12 or 13 (barring all RL catastrophe).

    And here's what the winner will get: your story announced in the thread title for a week, and the opportunity to come up with this thread's next challenge! (I am glad to work with you on the latter if it would be helpful—just shoot me a PM.)

    Happy reading and voting! :)

    Ouch. I've had one bookmarked since practically forever and now I need to read the other two, which are long, too. Ouch.

    The results are now in for the Fanon HORROR challenge, and we have a winner:

    @Gamiel, The Vaults of Cromm-Crúaich

    Congratulations, Gamiel! Let's be in touch about possibilities for the next challenge. And of course, many thanks and kudos to all who took part! :)

    EDIT: I would usually put the winning title and author in the thread title at this point, but as you know we're unable to do that right now because of technical issues—so thanks for understanding. @};-

    Congratulations, @Gamiel

    That was quite the creepily evocative story.

    There was a space horror novel that I think I recently recommended to @yahiko ; your story was on a par with it.
