    So I ended up writing a thing for this after all! I hope it's okay that it does not actually take place in space. :p

    Peaches

    It's Stranger Things, using prompts 9. Awkward Meeting and 6. Neighbor(s), and the pairing is Steve Harrington/Billy Hargrove. And even though it's NSWFF there are a few non-human OCs. :D

    Thank you once again for these fun and inspiring challenges!

    Not in the least! It’s still just the 11th by boards time, and you have till the 13th by boards time. If you’ve got something, we wouldn’t love to see it!

    And @amidalachick , that is excellent! I’ll get your entry into our index right away. :)

    Sorry, I’m not quite sure what you mean... the idea is that you use a random generator like www.random.org to choose them yourself—but I am glad to help if needed. :)

    Oh wow, “sudden awkward proposal” and “youngling(s)”—I bet that will generate some romcom gold! :D

    Can I ask, 'Youngling' - is that Jedi ones or General Kids.? I went to Google and got this.

    Ah, so, by “younglings,” I just meant kids in general, since I get the impression that’s how they’re often referred to in the GFFA. But that includes Jedi kids if you have ideas involving them! :)

    You are welcome! And I apologize for making a mistake in my math above: I should have written 52 hours instead of 28. (At the moment of writing, it’s just over 43 hours.) Hope all goes great! :)

    I took it as kids in my story, so good to know I was right and don´t have to scrap it. :)

    IIRC, in the RotS novelization, "youngling" was used as a blanket term for children of all species across the galaxy, so I'd say you're exactly right. ;) (It may also be used that way elsewhere, but I've read that particular book more than a lot of the others. :p)

    Great! Got it in—so glad you were able to manage something!

    And just in time, too, because this is the challenge’s last day, and there are just over 19 hours left to get stories in! :D

    I got the numbers and it fitted a story I've had in my head for a while now, a piece of the tapestry that is Adalia's life. Was all too easy, not particularly good, as I don't claim to be an author, but fun for me none the less ;)

    This is so, so welcome a change from car problems that I managed a one-shot in a short time, Ipso Psycho featuring #1 "exes" and #1 "dare" which made me think I'd made a noob error with the generator, but no. I'm still not completely finished reading canon because the crossovers between series needs a spreadsheet from Excel but I'm nearly there. Thanks for the prompts because it took them to perk up the plot bunny's whiskers! :) John and Zee face all kinds of stuff to endure ... it's mostly rom-com with smallish bits of angst.
