Thank you, Ny. Off to read and update the index!
You're free to claim another number if you like.
I don't know how fast I'll get something up, but go ahead and hit me. #14 please.
You got...err... PSY and his famous earworm, Gangam Style.
The video is in the spoiler, here are the lyrics translated to English.
Sounds like you are having good success with this idea, Ewok Poet.
I have too many active fics on the go to take on another one, just now.
Here's my contribution: Break Free-- Current Hits Challenge, Mara Jade
Can I have another? 28?
I'm going to read that and comment on it now. That said, it'd be totally awesome if all participants would be going through each other's stories, support is cool!
Your second song is Black Eyed Peas' Meet Me Halfway. Interesting video that has been analysed to death is in the spoiler, the lyrics are here
Here is my contribution: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/threads/ill-never-be-a-royal-for-the-chart-hits-challenge.50041756/] I'll Never Be a Royal [/link]
Thank you. Read, reviewed and added it to the index.
If anybody is stuck or anything - feel free to ask for prompts, tips etc. Perhaps I can help.
Here is my response to the challenge - Not Just Talking Body. Updated the index, too...now, if I was to review my own story, I would've been cruel to myself. XD
I'm having trouble finishing up a story for the challenge because I hate the song and the artist I received. I'm doing the best I can, but if I get this fic done, it won't be a precise fit for the song. Is that okay?
Absolutely OK by me - you were still inspired by it. And that song IS challenging, not even to mention the video.
Ewok Poet, I'd like to take you up on your offer of tips and prompts, if I may. For some reason I am having a really hard time getting started on mine (Carly Rae Jepsen, "Call Me Maybe"); I think it's partly because (a) it's so immensely teeny-bopperish that it's hard for me to get it to fit with most the kind of things I usually write, and partly because (b) I'm trying too hard to marry it to the award fics I still have outstanding, and they just don't want to be married to each other for whatever reason. So yea, I'd love to see what you've got in the way of tips and prompts.
...and just after you wrote that, you had an idea. XD
If I may poke my head in with a suggestion, when I wrote mine I definitely didn't depend on the lyrics. I was more inspired by the story behind the video.
It's true, I did! Because, after all, I do have two teeny-boppers already in my ocedarium...
...namely, Soozoo and Talloïse. This time Talloïse could visit Soozoo on Nal Hutta and develop a crush on some narcissistic dreamboy artist-in-residence at Bonvika's court, whom she then does all sorts of stuff to try to impress.
Which leads me to divapilot 's advice:
That is pretty much the same approach I was thinking of taking here. The character may or may not even make it to the point of actually [hl=black]presenting the dreamboy crush with a holofrequency and saying "Call me, maybe."[/hl]
Thank you both!
I'll try Number 1 for my next choice.
Well, my video featured a lipstick lightsaber and missiles shooting from Ariana Grande's chest, so I found the lyrics more inspiring.
Your song is Use Somebody by Kings of Leon. The lyrics are here, the video is in the spoiler.
And WTK, was there a shortcut for dice? I didn't mean to throw anything, so now I'm just goofing.
I have my second one posted: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/threads/...e-darth-sidious-anakin-darth-vader.50041804/] Use Somebody [/link]
I had about 1,200 words of a completely different plot line written, but it really wasn't working so I scrapped it and ended up with this. I'm just happy the muse sort of cooperated.
It's posted over in NSWFF and is a fanfic for The West Wing (If you're in the social thread you are probably thinking, "Go figure!" ). I wrote a little primer in the notes of the story of the information you'd need to know if you never watched TWW, though I think you'd still get the gist without it.
Don't Have to Look from Afar
mavjade - Going to have a look now and update the index.

A week away from my laptop and the muse has given me bupkis (actually, it gave me a bunch I can't write till January), so I think I shall try my hand at another song to finish off my summer of "floundering muse".
I've always written listening to music. I wrote my fan fic SHOWDOWN (Han Solo) listening to Michael Jackson's BEAT IT.
I'll do one more, so give me Number Two!
I shouldn't do another right now, but I can't help myself.
