    I'm trying to find time to read them all. I don't want to skip reading anyone's story, even if the subject/setting isn't "my thing".

    All righty doo, everyone! Our voting results are in, and I am pleased to announce that we have not just one (1) winner but two (2). That's right, folks, a tie—perhaps no surprise given the very high volume of excellent stories we received this time around. :cool: So, let's hear it for:

    Once Bitten by @Jedi_Lover
    and
    All That's Unsung by @Mira_Jade

    Congratulations and well done, Jedi_Lover and Mira! [face_dancing] And many, many thanks to all who took part in this challenge—you all did a great job and made this a real success. =D=

    Aw, you guys, I'm honored! Thank-you so very much!

    This challenge was kindly provided by @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha (thank you, Ny!). Here is how she describes it:

    Enjoy, happy writing, and as always feel free to ask any questions! :)

    Love it! I love angst and make-up mush! I have a couple ideas!

    But I think I want some opinions on one idea (hope this is okay). One of my West Wing OCs has a physical disability and one of my ideas revolves around a misunderstanding of an aspect of his disability by his wife and him misunderstanding something about her actions (I'm still brainstorming exact details). But I know from personal experience (okay, more from my father's experience because I'm single as the come), very few romantic-relationship disagreements actually stem from the challenges surrounding having/being in a relationship someone with a disability; it happens but, you know, people with disabilities get into normal misunderstandings with their S/O too.

    I like this idea (also because I can do it without a whole lot of background on the characters) but I also don't want to perpetuate some myth that "everything that goes wrong in a disabled person's life is because they are disabled."

    Part 1 of Words and Actions is up for the Misunderstandings challenge. It is West Wing, but if you know who Mav's OC's Marc and Leo are, you should be able to get it. It's basically them being marriage councillors for their friends.

    This is one of those fics I kinda wrote begrudgingly. The Muse just took off with the idea even though I wasn't sure I wanted to write it.
