    Like, an all-new one that you haven't written before? Could be fun, could definitely be fun... @OCDatabaseSock (@earlybird-obi-wan), what sayest thou? Could something like this be one of the small-scale noncompetitive challenges, maybe? :D

    That's what I was thinking. A totally new character created for the mini challenge.

    And is this an all-new character as the lead of a story, or incorporated into a story with your other OCs or ECs? Because one would be harder than the other, of course!

    Good question, @Mistress_Renata. I think the character should lead the story, or at least be a major supporting element. The idea of my challenge is to introduce a new character in a ficlet or vignette.

    I might possibly think about it.

    Why do I keep picking up the plot bunnies when there are already way to many in the hutch?

    Create an OC from scratch?

    As a roleplayer, this would qualify as a piece of piss. UK slang for "very easy".

    Sure, why not.

    What would we be spending the words on? A character sheet, or a short fic featuring the lucky sentient.

    Short fic if we can get a approval from the Sock. No word yet from @earlybird-obi-wan.

    I am in a bit of a mess since januar 2018 when my womb was removed. It was endometrial adenocancrinoid 2 grade. Result to the best hospital in Amsterdam where a treatent began. I almost lost my life when during the laparascopic operation to remove the last lymphnode the right femoral artery was nicked. 2,5 minutes to open my belly plug the fountain and get me some new blood. I survived but that last darth-sucker had some malign cells and now I have to endure chemo and radiation. But it can be cured.

    My question: can someone take over the OC database until the end of the year?

    @earlybird-obi-wan, oh my gosh, that’s incredibly scary; I’m really sorry to hear that, but I am glad you’re all right and still with us! @};- I would be more than happy to take over the OC Revolution thread while you recover. Take good care and hang in there. <3

    Oh no! How terrifying! I’m so glad to hear that you’re doing better but I’m sorry to hear you’ll need to chemo and radiation. I’ve been there and it’s not fun. Just remember that you can always find friends and support here. ❤️

    Sorry to hear what you have been through!

    I too, am glad to have you still with us.

    Try not to think that you have to go through this alone; we are here for you to vent at, and talk to.

    Earlybird, I'm so sorry. :( I have not been through this myself, but a family member was and it's a nightmare.

    Oooooh, earlybird! I'm so sorry about this! Take good care of yourself, get better soon, and know that we're all looking forward to witnessing the power of this fully operational OC sock when you're ready to take it back [:D] @};-

    Findswoman, I appreciate it greatly if you will take over until the end of 2018. The mods will have a password I hope.

    @earlybird-obi-wan, I'm so glad that they were able to fix the error in surgery and that the remaining cells are treatable. That is all way too close, and having to do chemo and radiation too is a lot of things to deal with. That is a truly crappy situation and I wish you were not going through it. Best wishes for everything to go well in further treatment and recovery. @};-

    As others have written, I'm sorry to hear you have been going through all this, @earlybird-obi-wan. But I'm glad to hear that the situation can be treated, and I hope for the best for you in recovery.

    Hello @Findswoman! I was wondering if you were agreeable to posting the challenge I noted above. Do you have any plans of your own as the interim Sock?

    Hi! Yes, I liked that idea very much, and am indeed planning to officially post it soon as a noncompetitive mini-challenge type of thing. So far my plans as interim sock are to continue the current (competitive) OC challenge to the end (it's due May 31) and the go from there; in this thread the winner of the challenge is typically the one who chooses the next challenge. But I am turning over in my mind some ideas for some other competitive mini-challenges and/or discussions, and I am always open to suggestions. :)
