    Okay, I´m choosing the german song "Marsch der Verdammten" (March of the Damned) by Karl Sternau.
    And I chose number 11 in hopes its something doable. [face_nail_biting]

    The last month has disappeared in a haze. Congrats [mention]Mira_Jade [/mention] and [mention]devilinthedetails [/mention]!!!

    I’m going to try for this months even though I’ve repeatedly told myself no lore challenge until one of my two long fics is finished.

    Blergh. That’s not going to happen for ages!

    So [mention]Captain Rakkaus [/mention] May I please hav number 14 for Mr Blue Sky by E.L.O

    Right? Literally feels like we blinked and September - this whole year, really - was gone.

    Anyway, back on topic. :p After much thought and indecisiveness I decided to go with the song that came to mind first.

    May I have #3, using "Right Time of the Night" by Jennifer Warnes? Thanks so much! :)

    Thank you all so much! :) And now, more prompts to hand out:
    Ah, so, first, please choose the song you want to use as a prompt, and then I'll hand you #7. :)

    Great, I've got you in my list! For #11, you receive Constant Interruptions.

    Yes, absolutely, and great to have you on board! For #14, you receive Third Wheel / Tag-Along.

    Yes, of course, and great to have you, too! For #3, you receive Awkward Encounter.

    And I think I've gotten everyone who's signed up so far, now—please double check the index to make sure things look right, and as always, feel free to ask any questions! This is going to be super fun, and I can't wait to see what will come out of these combinations! :cool:

    So, when I first considered my prompts with my usual SW OTPs in mind, I had no idea what to write. Then a NSW plot bunny came along and spilled all the words in an unabashedly fluffy vignette of somewhat epic proportions. You gotta love muses, right? :p

    That said, I am all too happy to share All Fools in Love, featuring Elinor Dashwood/Edward Ferrars of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. With a hearty dose of Marianne Dashwood/Colonel Brandon on the side, but they are still rather stuck in pre-OTP denial. Shhh, I already know that I'm a sap. You don't have to tell me. [face_mischief]

    As always, I have to extend a thousand thanks to our hostess for posing yet another fantastic challenge! I can't wait to see what entries are inspired next! [face_dancing] [face_love] [:D]

    Excellent! Two more awesome submissions—got them in the challenge list now! Thanks so much! :)

    @earlybird-obi-wan just a question for clarification: is there a romantic pairing in your story as well, or is the focus mainly on the friendship between Kyp and Corran?

    QUICK EDIT: Also, just to let you know, there are now two (2) weeks left in challenge #22, with stories due November 23! :)

    I think I'm going to have to bow out of this one @Captain Rakkaus :oops: If you want to take me off the list so that someone else can have my spot, please feel free! ;)

    This was like 95% finished before my muse decided to cooperate with my original idea, but since this one was practically finished, I decided to just finish and post it as an out-of-competition entry.

    Left Behind was inspired by the same prompts as my other entry, but its SW with an OC/OC pairing (Pan/Teilo)

    No worries, Viari, I totally understand how things can go! @};- It’s completely up to you whether you want to be taken off the list; given the relative proximity of the due date, I’m not sure how many new takers we’re likely to get. Let me know how you would like to proceed.
    Excellent, thanks so much! I’ve got it listed in a new “Ad-Hoc” category. :)
