[mention]Captain Rakkaus [/mention]- sorry! Kithera Rinani and Del D’ladame
Excellent, got it! Thanks so much!
So just to clarify that story is a collaboration between @Adalia-Durron and myself. Sorry if it came across as my work alone.
For the Love of the Lady is finished (minus the epilogue) and I'm pretty happy with it. Glad I got it done before all the drafting comes in tomorrow.
Ah, sorry about that! I’ve fixed the listing now to include both of you.
Also, while I’m here, a quick reminder that there are two (2) weeks left before the current challenge comes due on September 6!
And mine is finally complete! Yay! Now to read all the other entries!!!
Hey, OTP-ers! This is your one (1)-week warning for our current challenge, OTP Challenge #16: Milestones, which comes due on Sunday, September 6! We've got some excellent stories in already, and I'm looking forward to seeing what else may come in!
And now our three (3)-day warning! Three days left to get your stories in for OTP Challenge #16: Milestones!
Sigh, brain never did kick into gear on this (brain is interested in other stuff right at the moment). Sennah & Danyal's wedding story is going to be on the back burner for a while more.
That’s all right, I’ll be more than delighted to read that whenever things work out for it to be ready. I’d been hoping to finish my own contribution by the deadline, but no chance of that now.
Though all that said, even stories posted after the deadline can still be listed in the challenge index—so go ahead and post whenever, and we can still list it.
My muse too was DOA for much of this summer and I finally had an idea hit me and inspire words only over the last few days. So! This is yet another short story, and I won't have it finished and the challenge requirements included by the deadline - but I certainly wanted to start it under the wire, if I could. I would be more than fine with this being considered an ad-hoc entry, as such.
Now You're a Home features a slightly-AU post-RoTS Rex/Ahsoka with a first kiss milestone. Beyond that, it's about grief and healing and finding light - and a bit of love - despite the dark. All the good stuff that makes up SW, basically.
Thanks for hosting such a wonderful challenge again! Now, I look forward to catching up on reading the rest of the wonderful entries.
Ooh, excellent, a fifth entry, and it’s about a fifth milestone, too! Added to the index with pleasure. What a wonderful variety we’ve got!
AAAAND VOTING TIME!!!
All right, everyone! Time to VOTE in OTP Challenge #16: Milestones! Here are the five (5) excellent stories we have in the running, each of which turned out to center around a different milestone—how cool is that!
A Date with Destiny by Anedon and Adalia-Durron (featuring OCs Adrian Malek and Marie Firestone)—first date
Light and Life by devilinthedetails (featuring Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala)—news of expecting a child
And They Lived Happily Ever After, chapter 4 by Raissa Baiard (featuring Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla)—wedding
For the Love of the Lady by Kit' (featuring OCs Kithera Rinani and Del D’ladame)—reunion after separation
Now You’re a Home by Mira_Jade (featuring Captain Rex and Ahsoka Tano)—first kiss
There’s also one out-of-competition entry, listed behind this spoiler cut to avoid confusion:
Our Big Fat Lasat Wedding by Findswoman (featuring Garazeb “Zeb” Orrelios and OC Shulma Trilasha)—wedding
Here's what to do: PM your vote to this sock by 11:59 pm PST on Monday, September 21. (So you'll have about two weeks to read and vote.)
Here's 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 Tuesday September 22 (barring all RL catastrophe). We will begin our next challenge shortly after that!
Happy reading and voting to all, and thanks for making this another great challenge!
Wow! So many amazing fics that it's almost impossible to choose!
Also a good reminder that I need to read as much as I write because I keep missing out on all these great fics because I'm trying to get everything done all at once. Gah!
And one week left to vote, people! Only two votes have come in so far; let’s see if we can get some more!
And now just four days left, and there are still only two votes in! Get 'em in, get 'em in, get 'em in, people!
And me again—TWO DAYS LEFT TO VOTE, people! We can do this!
There are so many good fics too! Also if you read them you might be able to add some more fics to your readers challenge entry!

I know, I know! I'm having a lot of trouble deciding, for real. (Thanks for the reminder, though. )
Just today and tomorrow left to vote, good people! (Yes, I know I’m being annoying and spammy! But I just love it SO MUCH when the votes come in—it makes my whole day! )
Aaaaaaaand LAST DAY! Get your votes in, folks!
ALL RIGHTY, EVERYBODY! The results are in!
Our winner for OTP Challenge #16: Milestones is:
Now You’re a Home by @Mira_Jade
And this time, it turned out we had a clear second-place winner as well:
