Okay, my third and final part for the OTP challenge is up.
Woohoo! So wonderful to see the stories coming and being finished up! This challenge has been such a success—kudos to you all.
Just a quick reminder that the voting deadline for challenge #10 is in three days, at the very end of the day on Thursday, April 25. Here is the post with all the details. So far only one vote has come in; let's see if we can get more!
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".
One more day to vote, everybody! Let's get 'em in!
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. So, let's hear it for:
Once Bitten by @Jedi_Lover
All That's Unsung by @Mira_Jade
Congratulations and well done, Jedi_Lover and Mira! And many, many thanks to all who took part in this challenge—you all did a great job and made this a real success.
SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE and WOOT for @Jedi_Lover and @Mira_Jade
Congratulations @Jedi_Lover and @Mira_Jade! They were both great stories And to everyone who entered—so many good stories, it was a tough choice!
Congratulations @Jedi_Lover, @Mira_Jade
Wow! What an honor. Thanks everybody! And congratulations to @Mira_Jade for her great story!
Congrats you two!
I can't wait till the next challenge. My muse could use some... focus.
Aw, you guys, I'm honored! Thank-you so very much! And congratulations to @Jedi_Lover too for a job well done! Seriously, though, there were some fantastic stories this time around; I had such a hard time picking my favourite, personally. So, well done everyone!
Now, I already can't wait to see what's next.
Well done to both winners!
A lot of quality on show amongst our first fic responders.
Congratulations J_L and Mira!!
Congratulations! It was great to see so many entries, too!
All right, errrbody... new challenge time! It gives me great pleasure to announce
OTP Thread Challenge #11: Misunderstanding Cleared Up
This challenge was kindly provided by @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha (thank you, Ny!). Here is how she describes it:
So yes, no lists and roulettes this time—just a prompt that gives us tons of couplistic and OTPical possibilities to work with!
As usual, the challenge will run for ten (10) weeks, so stories will be due on Friday, July 12. A two-week voting period will follow.
Enjoy, happy writing, and as always feel free to ask any questions!
Strategic Alliances by Raissa Baiard (featuring Sabine Wren and OC Maximus Ordo)
Like Someone in Love by WarmNyota_SweetAyesha (featuring Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker)
Words and Actions by Briannakin (NSW: The West Wing, featuring OCs Marc Lyman/Leo Lyman and Elvie Santos/Rose Santos)
Heir of the Hangover by Jedi_Lover (featuring Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker)
Woohoo! I’m working on a story that fits nicely with this
I can do that with ALL my SWR OTPS!

I love this type of story, so I really look forward to this!
The mush potential is so high!
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."
Because I need to start more stories--the first chapter of my challenge entry: Strategic Alliances
I have begun
"Like Someone in Love" featuring Luke and Mara.
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.
Hey everyone! Just a reminder that there are two (2) weeks left to go for the OTP Challenge #11: Misunderstanding Cleared Up, which comes due on Friday, July 12. We've got three wonderful entries so far... let's see if we can get some more!
Thank you for the reminder! I've got one started, hopefully I can get it finished.
