    I decided to combine this challenge with the dare challenge. For this one I went for number 23. which is things you said [make your own] and so in the spirit of [make your own] it's now (for me at least) 23. Things you said when you were teasing. I came in at exactly 500 words and I hope it works.

    Pun away

    Forgot to put my couple down - it’s Namia and Taeyn from the USJS timeline so two OC’s

    My entry to the challenge is my newest OTP: Holden/Naomi from The Expanse. I don't think you have to watch to get the story. I actually used two of the prompts to make one 500 word story. If that's stretching the rules too far, the first story can count as my official challenge entry.

    I used 31:Things you say right before goodbye and 32: Things you said, right after hello

    Don't Tell Me Goodbye

    Got it indexed, @mavjade , thank you so much! And yes, it's totally fine to take inspiration from more than one of the prompts on the list, as long as the whole thing is within the 500-word limit. :)

    After a bit of wresting with my very wordy muse, I was able to finish an entry for the challenge! It's called Know This By Name, featuring Carasynthia Dune and Din Djarin - and it's part of their brand new, very own viggie collection. I used #7: things you said while we were driving. [face_love]

    Also! The romance ended up being very subtle in my entry. Although it's definitely there as an undertone, it's more of a pre-OTP piece. If our wonderful hostess decides that it's too subtle, then I am more than happy having my entry be ad-hoc to the challenge. I was just more than happy to participate! :D

    Great! Got them both in. :) @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha, I listed your Han/Leia one under "Out of Competition" because you've currently got "Being in the Light" listed in the "In Competition" category right now. Is that all right, or would you like me to reverse them so that the Han/Leia piece is in competition and "Being in the Light" is ad-hoc?

    Wowzers, just about exactly a month to go, and already we're up to 9 in-competition entries, plus some! Amazing! :eek:

    I'd like the Han/Leia to be ad hoc and Being in the Light to stay in competition. :)

    Taking a quick break from finishing "Crisis of the Heart" to write up a scene that's been floating in my head for a while that fits quite well with the challenge. Added it to my MMM thread, cause it really fits there:
    Things You Said When We Were (finally) Alone

    Hooray, @Raissa Baiard and @TheRynJedi ! Got them both added to the index. Wow, we're up to 10 in-competition entries, along with 3 ad-hoc--this has got to be some kind of record, at least for my tenure as sock host! :D

    Forgot about this.

    I had a go, but 500 words for a single dialogue, was far more than I could achieve.

    Reached just 334 words.

    500 was just the max limit. Mine was 300-400 when I last checked to make sure I wasn't going over.

    Edit:
    Checked, only 308 words, lol

    Ah, okay.

    Thank you.

    I shall read through it, try to re-acquire my theme, wrap it up and post it.

    So, it took me some time (probably more than it should have), but I managed a Zeb and Shulma piece of 493 words. It's based on prompt 31, "things you said right before goodbye":

    Blumfruit and Queen's Heart

    It's also going to be out of competition, as I'm the sock host.

    I wanna do one soooo bad! But none of the prompts are tickling any plot bunnies. The bunnies are super focused right now, which isn't a bad thing, but it means distracting them with something fun like this is pretty much impossible!

    My use of BBCode markup, tends to mess with word counts, so I halted a few short of 500, for
    How'd he get in? Intruder Portal.

    493 words. Based on "things you said in the dark". Bring a flashlight.

    Excellent, excellent! Glad to see more rolling in. :) @Sith-I-5, a quick question before I index yours. Which characters do you want listed in the index? It looks like the dialogue is between Rey and Kylo, while the actual couple is Rey and Finn?

    And @Briannakin , no worries at all--there's still about a month left till the due date (June 21), so the bunnies will hopefully have plenty of time to do their thing! :D

    @Captain Rakkaus - I think it would make more sense to index it as Rey and Kylo.

    This has just been the best batch of entries so far, and there's still a month left to glean even more gems! Voting is going to be especially hard this time around! :oops: [face_thinking]

    And, because my muse is apparently on a roll, I wrote an ad hoc entry using prompt #22: things you said after it was over, featuring Cara and Din again. Koja-nut Butter and Meiloorun Jelly, in which parenting hijinks ensue and messes are made. Or, erm, cleaned, I should say. :p

    Thanks @Mira_Jade , got it in! (And I'm guessing that's "after it was over" as in "after the end of [momentous happening X]," rather than over between Cara and Din! :p )

    Oh, definitely in more of an after the Child"s toddler antics were over, rather than after the end end. I kinda dodged and subverted the meaning in that one. [face_mischief]

    My muse has been quite inspired by this challenge... thank goodness! I've written an ad-hoc story as part of a series (Changed the name of the series to "You Said") of these prompts in NSWFF- The Expanse.

    This time I used #38 things you said when I was sick - Jim Holden/Naomi Negata
