    You can post stories for this challenge any time before the deadline, and that’s true of most of the challenge threads we have here. It’s really only in the MMM that the “do not post before the deadline” rule applies. :)

    :D @Vek Talis -- I believe this is due by--so as long as it's up before or on the date of the 7th, it's fine, unlike the MMM which has to be posted on the exact date of the specific challenge.

    Not sure if I get mine done in time. Fear I have to drop out of this challenge.

    You are very welcome, @Vek Talis! @Sith-I-5 and @Anedon (or anyone else feeling uncertainty or trepidation), if there is any way I can be of help to you, do let me know; otherwise, I completely understand about RL eating up time and energy. @};-

    So here I am again to announce that there is one week left in OTP Challenge #9! Just one week to get your stories in by the January 7 due date, and voting will begin shortly afterward. We've got three fine entries so far—any more to come? :D

    Had an idea. Could not progress it.

    Had a second idea. Wrote what I think would be 50% of the story, then found it fell afoul of the "focusses on a pairing" rule.

    Had a third idea, chapter in one of my projects, but it would have required out of character action by two of my OCs that I could not square. :(

    I'm now reminded that getting to the end of something, is a goal, so I plan to return to the second one, where I at least got words down, and just accept that it breaches one of the criteria.

    My muse has also been distracted by how I can get Uncle Snoke and the kids into that temporary Yule scenario on the roleplaying forum. But those things tend to end right after New Year, and I don't think it can accommodate a being the height of my Snoke, anyway.

    Edit: Mm, that may be the ticket. 1083 words added.

    Excellent, excellent! The challenge index has been updated, and we're now at a total of five stories. This is what I love to see! :D

    @Sith-I-5, could I ask you for just a couple things: (1) please check that I got your story's pairing right in the challenge index, and (2) please indicate the plot point/reason you received for the OTP challenge in the headings of your story. Thanks much. :)

    And your index shows the correct pairing.

    Just when I am supposed to *work*, I have a plot bunny to combine this with the MMM challenge, out of all possible challenges.

    Man I love this challenge so much, but the muse just isn't cooperating at the moment, so nothing from me this time. :(

    All right, everyone, it's time to VOTE on OTP Challenge #9: The Distant Beloved! We really had a superb turnout for this one, with six excellent and very diverse stories. Kudos to all who took part. =D=

    Here are the stories we have in the running (listed alphabetically by author's name):
    Here's what to do: PM your vote to this sock by 11:59 pm PST on Tuesday, January 22. (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 Wednesday, January 23 (barring all RL catastrophe). The winner's story title will then be announced in the thread title for a week!

    Happy reading and voting! :)
