    This one runs on a steady schedule (this most recent challenge being the only exception), but I'm willing to handle this the usual way: as long as the story has been started before June 07th, it's in the run.

    I have 2 ideas for this (no surprise there). Ones actually serious because it's a continuation of Mav's last OTP challenge entry (congrats to her and Nyota BTW :D) and is going to take a lot of backstory, so I'm not sure if it will be done (I have a crazy 2 months ahead of me). But the other involves little to no backstory and my OC Elvie just letting his mouth run, so I think I'm going to work on that one first.

    The OC challenge is set at May 31. I like to keep it at that date

    That's awesome. :) I was confused about how people will grasp this challenge (probably because I was like "LOLWUT" at first), but the more time passes, the more it makes sense. And it can work with all kinds of couples - not just married people and M/F. It can even work in crack!fics.

    I'm getting a Tom and Jerry plot bunny, based around the newest series and Tom's relationship with Toodles. The only problem is, err, Tom's inability to talk. :/

    Moving this here...

    DOOKASTA. I adore that name. And that could make for an interesting AU, or a love that fails and they become what they ultimately are - a man consumed by the dark side and a cranky lady.

    You are the queen of this! :)

    I don't even have an idea, as usual.

    One of my challenge entries is up in NSWFF! The Not-so Newlywed Game. I'm not sure if I'll get my other idea finished (EKKKK! SO MUCH DRL WORK TO DO!) but this is the one that needs very little back-story.

    However, I do feel the need to include a disclaimer: my OC (Elvie Santos) isn't normally this much of a dirty-minded, annoying, smarmy bastard, but my muse was just having some moments and I could not turn it off. He actually is a good friend to Mav's OCs.

    Just a reminder to everybody - the deadline to post your story is June 07th, 2018 at 20.00 Central European Time (check the world clock). :)

    I know for sure that we can get more than two entries here...c'mon, c'mon! :)

    I...can't see this happening for me. I am more likely to, say, write a response to the WTF challenge from one year ago than this.

    I doubt I'll manage to contribute to this one either, I'm afraid; there's just too much on my plate right now. But I'll be eager to see the final lineup! :)

    If anybody STILL wants to enter, you can do that by midnight of July 01st CET.

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA. [face_rofl][face_rofl][face_rofl]

    Here I am, here I am...my Human self will explain what the issue is at some point. She LOVES running this thread, but she got a bit disillusioned in general over the last three months or so. The voting will go up in a couple of hours and I have an ixxl-poodoo idea for the next challenge.

    So, watch out for Captain's word salad, I mean, voting post later today. :D <3

    CHALLENGE #8- "COUPLE GAMES" :: VOTING

    OK, yeah, the Captain has been weird recently and she would like to apologise for...well, the meltdowns back then and both DRL and its awesome equivalent, MRL aka Mando Real Life. Guess I kind of deserved this, since I refused to change the deadline back in...wait, when?

    *ahem*

    We have only two entries this time. Conveniently enough or not, they were written by folks who won most OTP challenges so far. I would have never guessed!

    As usual, if there are more of you who didn't make it on time, yet want to showcase your entries - you can post a link to your story/chapter and I will add it to the list of the ineligible stories, those inspired by the prompt. :)

    Guidelines

    You have two weeks to vote. Voting closes at 06:00 Central European Time on August 06th, 2018 (check the world clock). The votes will be counted and announced later that day or the next day.

    - You may not vote for yourself.

    - You may not post your vote in public.

    - You can vote whether you took part in this challenge or not.

    - Votes of challenge participants and readers count the same.

    - Please, take the time to read all the stories, leave a review if possible, and vote for the story that, in your opinion, fits the spirit of this challenge most.

    Once you know whom you're voting for, send a message to @Captain Rakkaus with the subject Challenge #8 - Voting and the name of the author and the link to their story in the post body. PLEASE, INCLUDE THE EXACT NAME OF THE AUTHOR, THE STORY NAME AND THE LINK. I mean it. :p

    ***

    Entries

    The entries are listed in alphabetical order, by author's username. For non-Star Wars stories, a link to the Wikipedia entry on the fandom has been provided for your convenience. For all stories, links to characters have been provided, too, unless they're characters from the SW films, or OCs.

    The sock has gone through everything posted so far and left a little supportive "Like" on all stories, or story chapters/parts, if there was more than one. :) I cannot read the stories I'm clueless about, but I support you all, I promise.

    The Not-so Newlywed Game by @Briannakin
    featuring OCs Leo and Marc Lyman

    And They Lived Happily Ever After by @Raissa Baiard
    featuring Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla.

    Please, let me know if there are any errors in the above listing!

    ***

    [face_dancing] Good luck, everybody![face_dancing]

    Voting is done. This was officially the most disappointing out of all eight challenges - barely any interest, barely anybody managed to pull it off...and only one person voted in the end. :(

    Still, I'm pleased to announce the winner - Raissa Baiard's And They Lived Happily Ever After! Congratulations! =D==D==D=

    Our next challenge is challenging, but very accessible. I'll post the intro today or tomorrow and I think that there will be a much larger target group for it.

    @Raissa Baiard -- congratulations indeed! Every time I watch a Hallmark movie I think Raissa could've written that! [face_laugh] ^:)^ [:D]

    For no reason in particular, I thought I would add that I have taken up another OTP: Scott Lang/Hope Van Dyne aka Ant-Man and The Wasp. Love these two in the original film and even more in the second one.
