    Most Outrageous Dare:

    bi0nic
    My Dare: Write a mush scene between an Ewok and a Jawa. Must include the words: cuddly, midget and exponential.

    biOnic will get to choose the mods? colors and icons for a week.









    Yes, it¡¦s that time again! Time for the Dare Challenge! :D

    We¡¦re doing things a little differently this time around, learning from the way things went the last time, trying to streamline the contest a little bit and such.

    We will open registration from May 2 to May 9. During that week, you will PM any mod and tell them what era you would like to write in AND send in your Dare at the same time. After we¡¦ve compiled all the Dares, we will make a Master List and number it (sort of like they do with the roulette challenges), assign everyone a number, and then send you your Dare. That¡¦s why we need the Dares at the start of the challenge! We will send out the Dares within two days of compiling a list of all victims. :p

    Once you¡¦ve gotten your Dare, everyone will have 3 weeks to post their response to the challenge.

    Here are the rules:

    1) No more than 2,500 words (if you decide to make this into an epic, only the first post will be judged)
    2) Make sure you indicate that your post is a Dare Challenge Response in the title thread so that the indexers don¡¦t index it. It will be indexed in the Challenge Index
    3) For this challenge, you may only submit one Dare and write one response. We are discussing keeping a file of "extra" dares to use throughout the year, so if you've got more than one great one, keep it in mind! ;)

    What¡¦s at stake?

    The first place winner will get colors for one week.
    The second place winner will get colors for 48 hours.
    The third place winner will get colors for 24 hours.
    The person who extends the most outrageous Dare will get to change the mods¡¦ colors and icons for one week. Yes, it¡¦s your turn to punish US!

    Note: And once again we'll need some volunteer judges, who don't want to participate in the contest by writing, but would like to be a part of it! :D We'll take a list of volunteers and choose as many as we think we'll need.

    You may post your intention to participate in the challenge here, but you won't be officially added to the list UNLESS you PM a mod and indicate the era you wish to write in as well as the Dare you wish to extend for the challenge.

    Let the madness begin! [face_batting]

    Just to clarify would your dare be in the same era that you select?

    For ease of record keeping, let's keep the Dare and your response in the same era. :D

    Well, here's what I did after the last challenge. I started making myself give hard or very inventive challenges to anyone who would ask. It drives some people crazy, but I really like how it's beefed up my skills. I just hope I get a more interesting challenge this time around!

    The more outrageous the better for some people. Some are very specific, such as:

    Write Vader as a ballet dancer. Must include the words razzmatazz, wince, apology but not include the word DANCE. YOu see how crazy it can get?

    Or it can be something more simple: Write a vignette showing Obi-Wan's first days on Tatooine and featuring an OC.

    bordiew, you will think up a challenge for someone else to write. You won't know who gets it. It could be write an action scene with a Gungan hero. Or put Lando in the Rogue Squad. Keep it simple or make it hard.

    You will get someones elses challenge that they come up with and have to write that scene. Could be easy, could be a killer. :D :D

    I'm still trying to write my response to last time, so I'm sitting this one out. Dang.

    Which reminds me -

    PS: Shame on the Mods for making a new thread for what is essentially the same challenge. :p

    Yay it's back!!

    Oh, it's changed.

    This sounds great, though I do have to admit that I kind of liked the way it was done the last time. I got to know my dare partner and was able to do her in with something she normally didn't write.

    But then again, she kind of did me in too. Maybe this way is not such a bad idea after all. :p

    Quick question: When we get these dares, are they going to be anonymous or are we going to be told who gave us our dare as well as who received ours?

    Well, we changed it this time around, so the new thread seemed like a good idea. :D

    We will send you the name of the person who dreamed up your dare when you get your dare PMed to you. ;)

    This sounds positively outrageous! I?m in, I shall rack my brain (yes I have got one ? somewhere) for a dare, I hope it is crazy enough for you; well at the very least it is not going to be very sane.

    OMG, this is the best challenge! I had so much fun with it last time around, though the vig didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped it too... the time just flew by way too fast.

    Glad to see it back!

    Nope! We've got it worked out so that you'll definitely get someone else's dare. :D

    This sounds really cool! I've stayed clear of the quote and song lyrics challenges up 'til now because they sounded vague enough that I might not have a clue what to write about. But this should provide some cool ideas, I'll get cracking on thinking up a decent dare. [face_thinking]
