    Welcome to the all-new, reformed and all-encompassing Official Write/Rewrite Challenge. Many of you may remember this challenge in one or both of its original forms: The OT Write/Rewrite Challenge, started by JedImasterbac, and the PT Write/Rewrite Challenge. After much consideration , we have decided and been mod-approved to combine those challenges as well as incorporate a new one just for all you Beyond fans.

    Hence the all-new official challenge thread. The challenges will be the same as before, taking a scene from the SW movies and rewriting it or creating an all new scene from the gaps the movies didn?t fill in. How are we working in Beyond, you may ask? Simple, the scenes will be chosen from the EU books or we may have you create an all-new one set in between the books.

    Your hostess are: Kelia and DarthIshtar

    The Rules:

    1. A new challenge will be posted on Mondays. Please post your response in the official response thread. A link will be provided along with the challenge. You will have 7 days to post a response.

    2. Please refrain from posting your reply outside the official response thread until the winner of that round is announced. The reason we ask this is because it is much easier for people to vote when all of the responses are in one place.

    3. Voting will begin the morning after the deadline to post a response. Anyone is allowed to vote. You do not have to be a participant in the challenge to do so. And if you are a participant, you may also vote, but do not vote for yourself. Also, please do not ask anyone else to vote for you. That takes the fun out of a friendly competition and we want this to be fun for all.

    4. Voting will be via PM only. You may submit 1 vote to either DarthIstar or myself within the voting timeframe.

    The Winner (The best part of all) :D


    Will receive one week of colors [face_dancing] [face_dancing] [face_dancing]


    A new challenge will be posted after the winner?s color?s have expired.

    If anyone has any suggestions, please PM myself or DarthIshtar. We are open to all ideas :)


    [face_good_luck][face_good_luck][face_good_luck][face_good_luck]

    Your first challenge is:

    Write a scene from any of the Zahn books so that the entire tone is changed. Bonus points if you use the same dialogue, but end up with a completely different intention.

    Entries are due one week from today, Monday, January 17 at midnight board time.

    Please post your responses here:

    The Saga Response Thread

    Beyond Response Thread

    And if you have any questions, you may PM Ish or myself or post them here and we will answer.

    Have fun everyone!

    Sadly, no responses to the first challenge :(

    The next challenge is:

    During the Clone Wars, Asajj Ventress became one of the most feared beings in the Galaxy due to her defeat of several Jedi. She also became the bitter enemy of both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. Your challenge is to write a scene focused on her first encounter with either Obi-Wan or Anakin or both. The setting and circumstances of this meeting are totally up to you.

    Entries are due one week from today, Monday January 31 at midnight board time.

    Please post your responses here:

    The Saga Response Thread


    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.


    Good luck!

    Hmmm...I might be able to do this one, I'll have to see how this week goes. (And I still haven't written my humor challenge response yet. [face_blush] )

    I'm definitely interested in this type of challenge, although I don't feel like I know the characters in Before and Beyond well enough to write those eras. Obi-Wan or Anakin and Ventress, though... [face_thinking]

    Looking forward to the entries! If I could join in, I would. Or I might write one on this challenge, just not for the contest.

    Figured I'd ask here because someone else may want to know, but do we vote now or tomorrow?

    I think the challenge ends at midnight, tonight, which means no voting today.


    Monday at midnight board time


    [face_thinking]

    I'm sure our hosts will let us know, however. :)

    And [face_good_luck].

    The deadline for entries has passed - to clarify the earlier question regarding the deadline - Midnight board time means people have until 11:59PM on the date in question. In this case, it was Monday February 14, to post their entry. I hope that helps for future reference.

    Voting is now underway

    Anyone and everyone, including the entrants, are welcome to cast one vote each. Please PM either myself or DarthIshtar with your vote. Voting will end at midnight board time, Friday, February 18. The winner will be announced Saturday, February 19.

    Entrants:

    earlybird-obi-wan
    Valairy_Scot
    mastermeg_0228

    Congratulations! (....give me a sec so I can catch up on them!)

    EDIT: Disturbing and well written, all three of you. I love the mix of hate and...love?...between Asajj and Obi-Wan and you guys all made that very clear.
