    Here is my first attempt at this challenge and it was much harder than I expected but a lot of fun!

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/non_star_wars_fan_fiction/b10808/31563514/p1/?0]Maladies[/link] is set in the House fandom. :)

    And my last table for February is up [link=http://boards.theforce.net/non_star_wars_fan_fiction/b10808/31458968/p1]here[/link]. I used the Valentines set to write for Defiance, of all things. :p

    My, but is it almost time for March already? :D :eek:

    I can't wait for March, either! [face_dancing]

    I wrote these ones last night, and then typed them up in the car during my 9 hour trip back to school. You know, it's a lot harder to type in cars than one would expect, especially if you're driving on a highway in the winter and it's full of potholes. :p [face_laugh]

    Anyhoo, I hereby present my fourth and last February table [link=http://boards.theforce.net/non_star_wars_fan_fiction/b10808/31461446/p2]Providence[/link] (a Hamlet piece - yes, I'm back to Shakespeare, I can't seem to leave it alone! :p ).

    :D

    I knew that you'd enjoy that set. ;) Go crazy with them! [:D]


    I was quite proud of them myself. :cool: [face_love]



    Now who's going to be the first to pull some Julius Caesar sentences out? [face_whistling][face_batting]

    I had a ridiculous amount of fun coming up with those - in their first draft every word was in latin, and I was going to link to a translating site . . . but that seemed to be a trite overboard in the end. :p One or two of the more common ones remained though. [face_mischief]

    Ohh... Firefly!! :D
    I like the ides of March too, but I probably won't do Julius Caesar with it. I love Shakespeare but I think I'm still scarred from when we read it in high school! ;)



    One quick note about the index, it says Maladies is by FelsGodess and that one's mine. :)

    Idri - I'm curious about your use of the money smiley . . . :p

    Probably no Ceasar for me. I'm still deciding on a fandom for March, but I don't know Firefly well enough (or Supernatural at all) to be able to do either of those. (Possibly I should rewatch Firefly too . . .)

    I can see doing a HTTYD one shot with one of these sets, but whether or not I get the time to do it or not is another issue. I was doing one for last month on Rocky, and only got it half way donw. I really am short on time to work on one shots.

    So I have officially copied and pasted all four tables for each one I'm doing. One is possibly a multifandom and the other one is of course Star Trek.

    *rubs hand together*

    Now to finish these this month!

    Take me back to the black,
    Tell 'em I ain't coming back;
    Burn the land and boil the sea,
    You can't take the sky from me...


    Gotta love Firefly and the Serenity starship...

    On other news, I have updated my thread with this month's Table III, with a Middle-Earth flavour, of course.

    Cheers,

    It's good to see everyone trudging along with their ideas. I can't wait to see what comes from these prompts. [face_love]


    In the meantime, I tackled Table I with an Inception themed set [link=http://boards.theforce.net/non_star_wars_fan_fiction/b10808/31458968/p3]here[/link]. [face_love]

    Blast it, I just can't find the time to tackle this challenge. It's already March 7th, and it has taken me seven days just to do nine words of a single table.

    I think I'll have to wait until break (so close I can smell it!) because my time seems to be pretty much entirely spent studying for midterms :(

    So I feel you, jop.

    I'm just too busy keeping up with my writing schedule for my other stories. Writing two stories that require weekly updates is very time consuming.

    Yep, Time is officially the aprentice of DRL. :p

    That's actually why I like working on sentences - they are small and compact and can go anywhere with you. They're the very best of stress free writing. ;)


    Here's to hoping your scedules lighten up! [:D]
