    My definition of mush is probably something between coziness and tenderness, in whatever way possible.

    Mush is what you do to food with the back of a spoon, so that a baby can eat it.

    Can you still use the quotes as inspiration for a fic without partipating in the challenge?

    I equate mush with romance from a child's perspective, as in 4 year old Rhiannon reacting when her parents (Thrawn and Minerva) kiss.
    Rhiannon: That's gross!
    Minerva (amused): Don't you like it when Daddy and I kiss?
    Rhiannon (annoyed): That's mushy stuff. Ick!

    Trying to get numbers that aren't taken...

    I can't get any numbers that aren't taken. Never mind.

    If they're used for inspiration, you can pick any pair you want. :) Or if you would like, I can throw the dice for you.

    I'll just pick mine. I really want the Fitzgerald quote and probably wouldn't get it by chance.

    Oh, and the Neruda quote is my other pick.

    They're all yours for inspiration, then. But somebody may still get them by rolling the dice for the actual challenge.

    Already figured as much. All good. Thanks.

    (I already realized I wasn't meant to participate when I kept rolling and getting numbers that were claimed. God works in mysterious ways. ;))

    Unfortunately, my muse has wandered off in terms of the quote challenge (I know I could re-roll, but the muse has been chugging along for other challenges I need to get going on).

    HOWEVER! I did complete something for the non-competitive “Elderly Love” prompt. It is The West Wing: One Last Time.

    Ah. Right. Excellent explanation.

    The thing that gets me to warm, fuzzy feelings, are two sides joining forces against a common adversary, eg. at the end of Thunderball, black-suited SPECTRE divers versus orange-suited US Navy divers battling each other, then sharks turn up.

    Both sides start protecting each other from the common threat, and that is the sort of thing that has gotten to me. Probably why writing romance doesn't come easily to me.

    I did find the scene on Youtube, but decided not to put it here in case it counted as derailing the thread.

    Have a look at the challenge announcement post—the deadline is May 28 at 1:30 pm Central European time, which is 6:30 am CST. So you've still got some time. :)

    Ack! Why do these challenges always sneak up on me!? You give us plenty of time, I just can't do anything until the time crunch is on. :p (Well that, and I've been trying to finish my Celtic Song challenge, because it's only been forever.)
