    I can't believe how fast some people are churning out drabbles! Great work everyone, this is going to be a seriously tough race!

    Here is my Drabble Race Entry (contains spoilers for the tv show Dark Matter).

    I feel like the tortoise in Aesop's race, though I'm fairly certain nobody is going to fall asleep this time. :D

    You're all crazy, and I love you for it. [face_love]

    There aren't enough hours in my days right now to review everyone's drabble threads individually, but I thought I'd pop over here to say that I just read them all and they're all amazing :)

    Hello folks, it's time for EVENT 2 OF THE FANFIC OLYMPICS! The Dare Challenge!

    For this event, the goal is to use one of the 'dares' provided to come up with a story of your own. At the end of the week, your readers will then vote for their favourite story to determine the winner. First place will win 100 points for their team, second place 75 points, and third place 50 points.

    This is an individual event; not every player has to participate, but we highly encourage everyone to do so.


    THE RULES

    1. If your muse is inspired, you may write for more than one dare. Each dare you write will be eligible for voting, but if you place twice in the rankings (for example, if you score first and second place), only the highest ranking will be taken (you would only win first place).

    2. Your story may be as long or as short as you wish; there is no word constraint. However, if you decide to create a multi-post story, only what is concluded by the deadline will be eligible for voting.

    3. You may post a link to your dare in this thread, along with your process if it is a mult-post. However, ALL DARES MUST BE POSTED BY 11:59 PM PST SEPTEMBER 19th to be eligible for voting.

    4. The Star Wars team must stick to Star Wars, and the Non-SW team may use any fandom they wish except Star Wars.

    5. All of the elements of the dare must be included in the story by the deadline. Voting should take into consideration which story best utilizes the dare criteria.

    6. Voting will last the 20th to the 25th. Participants are not eligible for voting, but we welcome anyone else to vote. You may send your votes to any of the FF mods, and we'll tally them up.


    Have fun and good luck. :)

    Hmmm, not a participant, but the fourth dare fits a story that I always wanted to port to the GFFA. Would it be OK if I did that, Mira_Jade ...as in, are you interested in what a random stranger would do with your prompts? :D

    I don't see why you can't Ewok Poet; it just wouldn't be part of this particular challenge, or eligible for the voting. :)

    I'm always up for seeing more kooky stories on the boards, though. ;)


    And I have to second Nat in saying that the drabbles were most excellent. I can't wait to see what people are inspired to write for this! :D
