    ...when, after making a flippant remark about giving your characters a “white picket fence and a dog”, you wonder what the GFFA equivalent is, because you totally want to use it.... :hera::kanan:

    ...when you feel super-charged writing impromptu fics because of nummies you read earlier [face_laugh] -- (Reading L/M is totally inspiring) [face_love]
    ... when reading fics that are like Hallmark Movie sweet, you JUST HAVE to post something as sweet [face_laugh] [:D] !!!

    ... when profic books you read, like about various cultures or biographies, etc., you hope will generate bunnies to tweak and SW-ify. [face_laugh]

    ... when you do NOT need a specific fic-gift exchange to write fic-gifts up ^:)^ [face_batting]

    ... when you realize NOTHING will or ever could dethrone your SW or Trek OTPs [face_dancing] [face_dancing]

    Wasn’t there a Monday Mush Madness thread at some point that did this sort of thing on a weekly or near-weekly basis? If that could be brought back... [face_thinking]

    Now, that's just crazy talk. 8-} You guys totally misunderstood me. I meant it would be true challenge for me to enter saccharin world of syrupy sweetness. My teeth would hurt. There would be sores in my mouth. I might have to swear off sweetness indefinitely if I took such a plunge. When I say challenge, I mean it would be really hard. :luke: Toche Station hard. :kylo: Kill my dad hard. :lando:Second Death Star Run hard. Get me? ;)

    There certainly was: Monday Mush Mania. Though it wasn't every week, it was every month or two, usually. It was a fun challenge! The last host of it hasn't been on in awhile so if someone wanted to restart it, let us know!

    ... when you look back over your past stories and see just how close your Jedi characters all came to turning to the Dark Side - and now you want to see what would happen if they were pushed right over the line.

    ...when a challenge is just that, something to make you stop and think and devise a plan of attack. When your first response is @Findswoman: What the what?

    Let the guessing games begin! [face_party]

    Edit: Guess - Jyn Erso?

    ...when you look at your latest Character Interview response and have a strange sense of deja vu. Did you post something similar in the past or did you have a dream premonition of that post? [face_thinking]
