    Oh wow! Shucks, I'm honored, folks, because that was a fantastic bunch of stories. Any one of them could have won, and collectively I think that was one of my favorite OTP challenges yet. Everyone deserves a round of applause! Then I have to give a special congratulations for @divapilot, as well! Talk about mighty fine company to keep. [face_love] [face_dancing] [:D]

    Congrats @Mira_Jade and @divapilot! =D= Very much enjoyed both stories and I think it was a well-earned tie there. [face_dancing] (Also, loved seeing the sheer number of fics for this one -- even if it did make picking even more challenging! :D)

    And now it is my immense pleasure to announce our next challenge, kindly proposed by @Raissa Baiard. (Thank you so much, Raissa! @};- )

    OTP Challenge #16: Milestones

    The journey of true love is filled with so many special milestones:

    First date
    First kiss
    First argument
    Engagement
    Wedding
    Anniversary (whether first or any later "landmark" one)
    News of expecting / preparing to adopt a child
    Birth/adoption of child
    Reunion after separation
    ...or come up with your own! (TOS-friendly, of course.)

    Your challenge is a straightforward one: to choose one of these milestones, choose a couple, and write a story about it! :D

    More than one person can choose to write about the same milestone (e.g., it’s OK if we end up with two wedding stories, or three engagement stories, or similar). And, of course, more than one person can choose to write about the same couple (e.g., it’s OK if we end up with two Luke/Mara stories, or three Ani/Padmé stories, or similar). As with all challenges in this thread, the TOS applies.

    The challenge will run a little over eight (8) weeks, with entries due Sunday, September 6. A two-week voting period will follow.

    Have fun and enjoy! [face_dancing]

    Sigh, ok, ok, I'll get working on Sennah & Danyal's engagement/wedding story. Sheesh.

    j/k, it's the next story on my list to write already, but my brain's been in a bit of a funk this week... Time to try to kick it into gear.

    Me again, everyone. I guess I technically should have posted this two days ago—sorry about that!—but I did just want to remind you all that there's just about a month left on the current challenge. We have two wonderful entries already, and I can't wait to see what more will come in! :)

    Got it in, got it in! :) It’s neat how the three excellent stories in competition so far each deal with a different milestone (though I repeat that no one needs to worry about repeating... yes, see what I did there, how clever, or something... :p ). So exciting to see more stories coming in; keep it up, people! :)

    Excellent, thanks, @Kit'! One thing, could you please remind me of the names of your couple, again, so I can list them properly in the index? Kithera Rinani and Del... what? :)
