    What did you think of this round?

    It was a lot of fun. The prompts were harder, too; those "phrase" ones could be tricky.

    What did you like? What did you dislike?

    I liked all of them. Can't sat I disliked much.

    Do you want more Author's Choice? Less?

    I personally liked the author's choice a lot. You could play with your favorite eras/characters more easily.

    Do you want the themes to open up on a day other than Monday?

    Naw, Monday's fine.

    Do you have prompts you'd like to donate for the next round?

    Sure -- I'll PM them though.

    Thank you for overseeing this again. It was a lot of fun.

    What I liked -- loved the prompts and how open they were to several uses depending on the mood and fandom

    Author's Choice -- I loved loved loved these!

    Monday's fine to receive prompts. :)

    Do I have prompts? Not now, but maybe later.

    I loved participating in this round. I read drabble threads in all the earlier rounds, but feel as a newbie especially, this was the "easiest" round to break into. [face_thinking]

    Thank you for a great challenge!

    Eagerly awaiting the next!!

    If it's fandom friendly again, I know which one I'll be doing.

    Melting already!

    :D

    What I liked: I liked most of the prompts the phrases got on my nerves somtimes but all in all it was good.

    Authors choice: I think it's good where it's at.

    Mondays work for me.

    It was good, I thought. Nice mix of themes. The phrases were a bit hard sometimes, particularly for providing continuity or a theme through the set, but that doesn't mean get rid of them. I enjoyed the author's choice, but I wouldn't increase it; one or two seems like a good amount.

    What did you think of this round?

    It was my first round so I can't compare it to any others, but I had a lot of fun!

    What did you like?

    Well, there was very little that I didn't enjoy, but in particular I liked that the themes went up on a regular basis; you could always count on them to be there on a Monday morning.

    What did you dislike?

    Like I said before, very little!

    Do you want more Author's Choice? Less?

    No, I thought two weeks worked perfectly. I think that when other people supplied them I was able to figure out what I would do for each since I already knew the order, and I couldn't change a prompt at the last minute. But when I chose them I did have that liberty -I guess it's both a positive and a negative, but for some reason I still enjoyed the non-Author's Choice weeks more.

    Do you want the themes to open up on a day other than Monday?

    I liked Monday -especially during the school year it was nice have prompts waiting after the first day back from the weekend.

    Do you have prompts you'd like to donate for the next round?

    Yes; I will PM them in after I post this. :)

    What did you think of this round?

    It was a lot of fun. Learned a lot about phrases

    What did you like? What did you dislike?

    I liked all of them. Authors choice was fun to do.

    Do you want more Author's Choice? Less?

    Two times is just great

    Do you want the themes to open up on a day other than Monday?

    Monday is fine.

    Do you have prompts you'd like to donate for the next round?

    Sure -- I'll PM them.

    Thank you for hosting this again.

    And starting a new round next year is nice.

    Finished with week twenty here! I'm just a wee bit late. [face_blush]

    Anyway . . .

    What did you think of this round?

    I enjoyed it. A lot.


    What did you like? What did you dislike?

    I liked everything, really. No complaints, either. :)


    Do you want more Author's Choice? Less?

    I loved it. While a fixed set of prompts may more acutely exercise your skills, there is something refreshing about just doing your own thing. I think that twice a round was a healthy balance.


    Do you want the themes to open up on a day other than Monday?

    Naw, Monday's fine.


    Do you have prompts you'd like to donate for the next round?

    You betcha. ;)

    You probably thought I'd forgotten about this, hadn't you? Well, I kinda had, but now I've remembered, and I've posted the third week. Of course, since it came after my biennial name change, I had to make a new thread.

    Week 3 includes appearances by:
    The Big Bang Theory
    Black Books
    Bones

    Count Chocula,
    and Dilbert!


    EDIT: I'm not sure if I can double-post when I actually update (since I may be the only one still working on this), but Week 4 is now up, with:
    Community
    The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley
    The Drew Carey Show
    Farscape

    and Ferris Bueller's Day Off!


    [EDIT II: If my count is accurate, the Ed Grimley drabble, which I wrote Wednesday, was my 700th overall.]


    EDIT Again: And now Week 5 is up, featuring:
    Darkwing Duck
    Doctor Who
    Family Matters
    FoxTrot

    and Ghostbusters!

    I suspect that by this point, even the lurkers have up and quit, but I've still finished Week 7's drabbles, featuring the fandoms of...

    Gargoyles
    Get Smart
    Gremlins
    Harry Potter
    and
    Highlander!


    [Gremlins is one of the first fandoms I ever posted anything for (a crossover back in 1993), but this is the first time I've drabbled in it.]


    EDIT: And in Week 8, there are appearances by...

    Hong Kong Phooey
    Horse Feathers
    House
    Human Target
    (2010) and
    I Spy!

    Same! I've pretty much given up on my Star Wars set, but I'm doing a Mass Effect one elsewhere. UDC5 can wait... please?

    Well, I'm still going, and Week 9 is up! This time, you'll find...

    I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again
    Indiana Jones
    The IT Crowd
    James Bond and
    Kim Possible!



    EDIT: Oh, I just realized that Week 10 was an "Author's Choice" week. How does the Five Man Band sound as a theme set?
