Discussion in 'Fan Fiction and Writing Resource' started by KELIA, Jan 10, 2011.
Heads up: a new challenge will be posted Saturday morning!
New challenge: Someone commented to me earlier this week that the difference in perspectives on a horrific event from each side is something that can make you say "Oy." Write any scene in any era this time, dealing with that principle. Show me Vader's perspective at that lunch on Bespin, Darth Maul at Naboo, Rukh at Bilbringi.
Yay! *rubs hands together gleefully*
When's the deadline?
I'm going to try and write a story. Depends on how life goes for the next few days.
posted one in Saga some days ago
Good! I'm going to check to see if you have competitors after work.
Congratulations to the inimitable earlybird-obi-wan! Next challenge...well, we'll see. After Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
New challenge: Each of the movies starts in media res--in the midst of things. Take the opening scene of any character and write how they got there. For example, what made Han go to that cantina? Did Luke lose a bet to pull that shift on the tauntauns? Where were Anakin and Obi-Wan when they heard they had to guard the Senator from Naboo?
Deadline? I'd like to do this but I'll be away from my desktop next week; I don't know if I can get anything written before Sunday or not.
I'm making it August 15.
Hmmm... This IS a challenge... who's life do I stick my nose into?
This was nice to do
Going to do mine tomorrow.
Sorry, will check this tomorrow and find the winner.
Okay, the end-of-summer slog has ended. I thought we'd had the voting round. I apologize. Please send in your votes, since we do have multiple entries. I will give you until the end of Labor Day.
Well This caught my plot bunnies eye. Could you PM me when you put up tthe next challenge
Congrats to earlybird, our new winner!
Next challenge will be up a week from Monday.
"Now the Jedi are all but extinct." Ben Kenobi to Luke Skywalker in A New Hope
Interesting Ben would make a comment like that considering all the Jedi were supposed to have be wiped out by Darth Vader at this point in time. Of course he knew Yoda was still alive but the quote leaves room for the very real possibility of other Jedi still being alive.
Your challenge is to write a scene starring a survivor of Order 66. The character can be cannon or your own OC, whichever you chose. Time frame is also up to you. You can write about their surviving Order 66, an average day in their life with Emperor Palpatine ruling the Galaxy or perhaps a chance encounter with Ben Kenobi or even Luke Skywalker. The options are endless.
For those of you who have an existing character who has survived Order 66, yes, you may use that character but the scene must be new.
Deadline for submissions is one week from today, Monday October 3 at midnight board time.
Please post your submissions on the applicable board:
The Saga Response Thread
Beyond Response Thread
The deadline for entries has passed and it is now time to vote.
Please PM me your vote by midnight board time, Friday October 7. The winner will be announced Saturday the 8th.
The deadline for voting is over and we have a winner!
Enjoy your week of colors.
Next challenge will be posted in one week, Monday, October 17.
