    [face_laugh] The challenge will still be here. And the readers. I am just thrilled to read new fic from you. :D

    Speaking of, does anyone else want to take a number? Even if the deadline passes, we would still love to see some takers. :) [face_batting]

    And I have my story done . . . "fingers laced to crown", set in the Avengers fandom.

    It's just not spooky, like, not at all. Creepy at times, most certainly. But my muse came to a sharp, shuddering halt at the whole 'horror' thing. Which is a shame. :oops:

    Does anyone want to give me another number, and I will see if I can actually write for the genre I am supposed to write for? :p [face_batting]

    - How about number 2?

    I tried reading your fic, but I got very lost. The only 'Avengers' I know is the 1960's TV show with Mrs. Peel and Mr. Steed. Yes, I am THAT old. So, Mira, if you could send me a PM with very brief synopsis of the Avengers Movie, and how these people in your story are connected, I could start over and read your story and not be so.... lost. [face_hypnotized]

    But it was spooky to me, anyway. People wandering around in other people's minds? [face_skull] Cool.

    PS.... Since there are still lots of numbers left, I will take another stab at it, too. But YOU can pick my number.

    Number two it is. :D And I pick three for you! Lets just start filling in the list now, shall we? :p

    Aww, thank-you for diving into a new fandom just to give my fic a try! That can be a daunting task at times, I know. :p I will figure out the best way to simplify the story (because it is quite the epic 8-}) and send that in a moment. :D

    Alrighty then, spooky enough, I will give it. :D it came across as creepy in parts, and when I finished writing it I crossed my arms and went 'well that was not what this was supposed to do at all.' It turned into a character study, and Loki completely hijacked it. Of course he did. o_O

    Can I have 27 please?

    Aha! I see PonyTricks, thank-you. Yesterday was killer and I couldn't get online. 8-}

    But that prompt is coming right now Master_Jaina1011! :D (And on that note, SHARON!! I can't wait to see some new fic from you. Just sayin'. [:D][face_dancing]

    That's what I'm hoping will happen to my muse. It's been dead for far too long. I have the vaguest of ideas floating around, but nothing solid enough to work with.

    I am so glad to see all of these muses getting jump started. I can't wait to see what you guys write. :D

    My second fic is "breath held, eyes closed" set in Tolkien's sandbox. It is only slightly spookier than the last. ;) [face_laugh]

    My muse won't even come back as a zombie. I've been watching spooky films, reading comics, watching movies in general, reading books, and playing Pokemon (that probably won't help), and nothing.

    Aww, that sucks TrakNar. :( There is nothing worse that an uncooperative muse. :rolleyes:

    Even if you can't come up with something spooky, is there a general fic the prompt inspires? We are not picky, :p

    Nothing's clicking at all. I want to write something spooky, as I find that fun. But aside from prompts and possible vague scenes, I have nothing. No idea is solid enough to work with. Even my art muse is half-dead. I've hit a major creative drought.

    TrakNar, I am so sorry to hear that. There is nothing worse than a creative drought like that, and I completely understand. :(

    I have a couple of back-up prompts. Would you like to try another one? :)

    I'm way behind ... but the weather is still October-ish, so I'm going to try to write this weekend! (Which ... is what I said last weekend 8-} )

    I was delaying to see if we were going to get more stories out of this, but it looks like everyone who is going to write for this did so already. Thank-you, everyone who participated! :)

    That said, we are not going to have a voting, but instead we are going to award earlybird-obi-wan and PonyTricks a week of colours for participating. Congratulations, and enjoy the spoils of your victory!! [face_dancing][:D]

    That said, if anyone would like another number, just for kicks, let me know. There are still plenty left. :)
