    And now, ladies and gentlemen... (drumroll) I give you an out-of-competition entry for the date challenge that I had the privilege to co-author with @Findswoman:

    Dinner at the Hungry Hutt

    ... featuring our most mahvelous Hutt OCs.

    Wonderful, and indeed mahvelous! I’ve got it in the index now, in an all-new out-of-competition section. Yay! :)

    OK, everyone, today is the last day of our challenge, and stories will come due at the very end of today PST (at the usual 11:59/23:59). But I want to give you the heads-up that I will not be able to do a voting post right away, because I am leaving on a camping trip later today and will be without internet until I return late this Wednesday (the 30th). I will make the usual voting post when I return, but you are perfectly welcome to send votes before that—just refer to the current index post and to any later entries that may come in at the very end of this thread. I’ll of course also take care of vote counting and any remaining indexing and index once I’m back. Thanks in advance for bearing with me, and happy voting to all! [face_dancing]

    Posted the third chapter of my Luke/Mara fic. I have one more chapter planned, which hopefully can be posted some time this week. If my muse is kind (which it never is:p)

    Just kidding, of course, muse. Not trying to make you mad...[face_liarliar]

    Happy camping! :)

    So I don't know how this happened but I wrote a thing!

    16 Very Short Stories About Dates

    Fandom is Stranger Things (of course) with various pairings. The format is a little different, it's one-sentence stories using all the prompts from the challenge announcement list, so I totally understand if it's not eligible to be part of the competition or the challenge.

    Thank you as always for running these awesome challenges!

    All right, everyone, I’m back and it’s VOTING POST TIME! Here are the eight (8) awesome stories we have in the running for OTP Challenge #20: It’s a Date:


    Dinner at the Hungry Hutt by Chyntuck and Findswoman (OCs Eliskandro Fasolia Faké and Bonvika Deseradii Feolla)

    Because I was gone, I’ll give you all a full two weeks from today to get your votes in. Votes are due in to this sock by 11:59 pm (23:59) PST on Thursday, July 15.

    And of course you all know what not to do: vote more than once, vote for yourself, vote using a sock as well as your normal account, vote for something that's not on this list or that is not votable, etc., etc.

    Here's when the winner will be announced: on or about July 16 (barring all RL catastrophe).

    Happy reading and voting! :)

    All righty, new challenge timhttps://boards.theforce.net/threads...entence-stories-au-otp-challenge-21.50056542/e, folks! Many thanks to @madman007 for proposing this one:

    OTP Challenge #21: The Seven Deadly Sins

    The seven deadly sins, as taught by various Christian traditions, are pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth. (For definitions and more background, including links that elaborate on each of the seven, see the Wikipedia article here.)

    Choose any one of them—or a combination of two or more—as a prompt (or prompts) for a story involving your OTP. Your characters can experience them themselves, or feel the effects of them, or react to them, or experience them from other characters, or pretty much anything! The only limit is the TOS—as you can see by the very nature of these prompts, it’s especially important to be mindful of that this time. But you know that already, of course. (And hey, perhaps that’s a particular part of the challenge! ;) )

    Stories will be due in the usual eight (8) weeks, on September 12 by 11:59 pm (23:59) PST. (Again, remember that that means you also have all of September 12 to post!)

    [face_devil] Have a wicked good time! [face_devil]

    Well, this sounds tantalizing, and ideas for Obi-Wan/Siri fic are starting to pinball around in my head even though I haven't finished my previous Luke/Mara OTP challenge. I am just hopeless when it comes to actually finishing fics this year. I imagine some deadly sin or other is to blame[face_devil]

    This is not a drill. I have actually managed to write an Obi-Wan/Siri story for the first time ever because of the inspiration this challenge provided, and moreover, I have been able to make the story a oneshot, which ensures it is actually finished and not added to my long list of unfinished works. Hurrah![face_dancing]
