    Nice challenge.
    I kinda already did that for Jacen and Tenel Ka in form of a vision in my Jacen story so we could add that in retroactivley.

    Beyond them I feel there are two more pairings who would really deserve a happier ending. [face_thinking]

    Its technically a part of the story "Redemption" but I gave it a standalone title of "Homecoming" as well

    Inspired by Bette Midler's "The Rose" I present an Anakin/Padme tragic romance for the OTP Challenge #17 "Our Song": Seeds of Love Growing in Dark Soil.

    I also really do like the idea of giving a couple with a sad ending a happier ending, so hopefully I can write something for the non-competitive challenge some time soon. It'll help to put my broken heart back together after writing Anakin/Padme tragic romance...

    Yay! Got mine up - It's How I met your mother with Kithera and Del. Del is explaining to his son how he and Kit fell in love (I just couldn't pass up on the title).

    There are two songs chosen for this as both fit. The first one is Shallow by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, the second is To Love Someone by Ben Abraham.

    I did something! It's West Wing but you really need to know NOTHING about the verse or the OCs to understand the story.

    Dance Me to the End of Love is up with Leo Lyman/Marc Lyman. I was inspired by Dance Me to the End of Love by Leonard Cohen.

    I never thought I'd do something like this, but I was skimming the challenges and came across the OTP challenge. I had an idea, I wrote it up. Sorry, it's angsty, but the song is angsty.

    High Hopes, Luke/Mara.

    For the non-competitive Happy Endings challenge, I have a Shmi/Cliegg story where Shmi survives her capture by the Tusken Raiders: Together Again.

    Got it in, thanks so much! :)

    And once again, a reminder that preexisting stories may be retroactively added to this index, too—they don't have to be specially written for the challenge, though that of course is totally fine as well. :)

    I've posted Roll Down The Window And Let The Wind Blow. It's a Stranger Things oneshot with Steve Harrington/Billy Hargrove, and the song is Thunder Road by Bruce Springsteen. [face_love] I don't think you need to be familiar with the show because I don't do canon anyway. :p

    Thanks so much for hosting this awesome challenge! [face_love]

    I did an additional/out of competition fic for the Song Challenge. Mostly because I just wanted an excuse and an easy fic to write for my new OTP. Simply the Best is up. The pairing is David Rose/Patrick Brewer. Fandom is Schitt's Creek and the song is The Best by Tina Turner.

    OK, my entry is ready:

    Long, Lonely Time

    It is based on "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers, features Zeb and Shulma, and is out of competition, as usual. Because I also worked in my prompt from the Romantic Quotes Roulette, it's an entry in that, too.
