    The Ultimate Drabble Challenge is back! The fifth annual UDC has begun, with twenty weeks and (almost) one hundred all-new challenge themes to get those drabbling juices flowing!

    THE RULES

    1.
    A drabble is a piece of exactly one hundred words (not counting the title).

    2.
    Each week for twenty weeks, I'll post a set of five themes. Participants will need to write one drabble for each theme (five per set, a hundred for the whole challenge). Creative use of the themes is encouraged.

    3.
    Drabbles may be Star Wars or in other fandoms. Each drabble may be in any era and feature any characters. Participants can choose to follow one through the whole challenge or change on a week-to-week (or even drabble-to-drabble) basis. [Those who respond on the NSWFF board can even change fandoms.] However, all board rules still apply.

    4.
    Each participant will need to create a single thread for the challenge responses, and each set's five drabbles must be together in a single post. Those posting Star Wars drabbles in multiple eras should choose the board likely to be appropriate for the largest number of drabbles and post them all there.

    5.
    Participants may put a notice in this thread when they have posted a set. I will maintain an index of participants' threads (both in-progress and complete) here on the first page.

    6.
    There is no Rule Six.

    7.
    Those who start late or fall behind are still encouraged to participate, will still be indexed, and will still receive full credit for finishing (however long it takes). However, the sets must still be posted in order, from one to twenty.

    8.
    Have I mentioned that a drabble is exactly one hundred words? Well, it is.

    Wooo! Ironic that I'm watching Doctor Who right now as I read these words.

    The challenge now will be to override that impulse and think Star Wars.

    Might as well have put "TARDIS" or "Bad Wolf" as one of them. :p [face_laugh]

    TARDIS and Wolf would be a mite tricky for those writing Star Wars drabbles. I presume that'll still be a majority of participants.

    It depends on how someone interprets the use of the prompt, really. (And I'll be joining... just as soon as I recover from UDC 4...)

    Fragments II is up.

    Although I have to admit, first thing that popped into my head when I read those words was Star Trek Voyager. Took a while to twist that back into Star Wars. :p

    I definitely don't trust my ability to get 2 sets of drabbles done. But maybe if the other weeks' prompts look interesting I'll go back for a NSWFF round after it's all over.

    Happy wriggles and roses to Nat! When I looked at those prompts I thought yes! yes! But I won't throw my hat in till I see next week's drabble prompts. But then I'd churn out two for the price of one in the NSWFF boards. If I do, I think I'll even take a page from Trace's last drabble title and call it Fangirl Indulgences [face_laugh] [face_laugh] Because that is what it would be. [face_love] [face_love]

    I'm still not sure I know exactly what this is supposed to look like, but I gave it my best shot. And it was quite lot of fun. :)
