    Congrats, @divapilot - that was a sublime entry.

    Well done to all the writers; the quality of your creations made it so hard to choose a winner.

    Thanks to the readers, and reviewers.

    That was a great challenge. As a fairly amateur OTP'er, writing with half the pair missing, was quite daunting and hard to get a handle on.

    And here, dear friends, is our next challenge:

    OTP Thread Challenge #10: DATE NITE GON RONG

    In the life of every couple, there are those perfect evenings out, those ideal moments of togetherness and bonding. And then, again, there are those that are—well, anywhere from not quite perfect to outright disastrous, but still eminently memorable. This challenge, as you probably guessed from its name, will focus on the latter, and it goes like this:

    Choose (with or without a random number generator) a number from one (1) to fifteen (15). You are welcome to do so publicly within this thread this time.

    You will then receive one of the following plot points (but note that this list is not necessarily in order by number):

    Dumb remark(s) by at least one partner
    One partner's ex shows up
    Ill-timed comm call from family member
    Raid by opposing political faction
    Employer or other professional associate shows up
    Chatty friend shows up
    Family member shows up
    Bar brawl/firefight
    Food-related disaster/emergency (though please nothing too gross)
    Stranger butts into conversation
    Wardrobe malfunction
    Technical/mechanical emergency
    Ill-timed comm call from employer or other professional associate
    Animal-related disaster/emergency (though please nothing too gross)
    Fall or injury

    Then write a story in which your couple's date or other romantic encounter/moment goes terribly wrong because of that plot point. I’ll list the plot points, their recipients, and eventually the stories in the index below.

    Just one writer per number for this challenge, please. But as always, you are welcome to ask for a new number if you feel your original one doesn't work for you.

    Per usual procedure, this challenge will run for ten weeks, so stories will be due on Wednesday, April 10, 2019. A two-week voting period will follow.

    Enjoy, happy writing, and as always, just ask if you have any questions! :)

    Oh, no! This is rife with all kinds of ... entertainment! [face_mischief] One question though: Can we write about the aftermath of the derailment as well? E.g., how the couple salvages the evening in spite of the interruption? [face_dancing]

    Answering as myself since now on mobile:

    Yes, certainly! It is totally up to each author whether the occasion gets salvaged or not, and how, and that can definitely be part of the story. :D
