    For OTP Challenge #33, I have written the story of how one of my Narnian OTP's Aravis and Cor met and fell in love as recounted to their nine-year-old son, Ram:

    All righty, this is great! We’re now up to four (4) entries in our “How They Met” challenge! This is just a reminder that we’ve reached roughly the halfway point in our challenge: there is now one month remaining in which to submit stories, with everything due in by March 24. :)

    And Bonnie and Bonnie is finished. Was much more than I first expected, but Ulrika and Elena are just very dear to my heart.

    *skids into the thread just under the wire*

    In spite of all the DRL things, I did it! I have the first part of my entry posted with [Victoria] As the Periwinkles Bloom. In a first for me, my OTP is an OC/OC pairing with my characters Prince Victor and Georgina Wellesley. [face_love]

    Kit made it by the skin of her teeth, Mira_Jade by the skin of the skin of her teeth, and now it's my turn by the skin of the skin of the skin of my teeth :p

    My entry is up: Il pleut toujours en Angleterre. The pairing is OCs Mina Lamb and Alec Burton, and the fandom is The Longest Day with a (fair) bit of Mira's Victoria AU thrown in.

    Finally read all eight stories and voted -- they were all splendid, by the way! :D I'm hoping I get to commenting sooner than later but if not rest assured that I enjoyed every one of them.

    Oh my gosh, how silly of me not to post our results yet, when it’s been more than half a week since the day I said I would! Very sorry about that, everyone! [face_blush] It was a very close vote this time, but a winner did emerge, and that winner was…


    Congratulations to Chyn on her win (and once again for devising this challenge), and gratitude to all our fantastic challenge participants for amazing work—this challenge really generated some great stories, and we had a truly fantastic turnout! =D= =D= =D=

    Yay! Go Chyn! A much deserved win - although I found it an exceedingly hard choice to make out of a group of altogether amazing fics :D
