    Good question. I want to see how one can put all of that into 2.5K. And not make it a song.

    I'd link to Benny Lava now, but the "lyrics" are debatable. Anyway, MY LOONEY BUN IS FINE, BENNY LAVA. MINOR BUN ENGINE MADE BENNY LAVA.

    It actually did! I'm on my tablet right now so I can't exactly Google-fu it, but if you copy and paste the Dare into google I'm sure it will come up, though it will be truncated. I know it was an Anakin/Padmè Fic.

    Hmm, all I'm getting at present in Google is links to this and the 2014 Dare Challenges, where it was given as an example, but I'll keep seeing what I can do (maybe the Wayback Machine will have something). And I have to say, Anakin/Padmé sounds like the absolute perfect choice for that sort of thing. :D

    I found it in the 2011 mod challenge thread. I'm not going to link it because it is kinda against our linking rules, but TheMacUnleashed was the poor soul to get it.

    Or just limit the number of limitations: a dare with no more than 3 restrictions (the Bollywood thing is a bit crazy, but kudos to pulling it off!)

    not sure i like that idea renata, that limits things so much that it's kind of silly, especially given the amount that you actually can do with 2500 words. i'd argue that upping the word limit or number of posts would make a bit more sense. maybe two posts of 2,500 instead of just one? that would alleviate a lot of issues with the whole thing.

    Why don't we visit this issue after this challenge is over? We usually do some sort of post-challenge survey and we can really get into it then.

    i think i actually remember that bollywood fic... if it's the one i'm thinking of, it's actually really well done... if completely nuts.

    currently working on my dare, getting some stuff roughed out but probably going to need to re-write things a bit.

    So, My response may take a little time given the requirements. I have an idea, but I have to research a little before writing. I appreciate your patience.

    All right, here we go: More Than He Can Chew. Hope it lives up to expectations! Everyone else is slamming it; loving what I've seen so far.

    Might I slip in and ask, very meekly, for the index to be updated? Just want to keep track of what I've read so far, and what I still need to comment on. Thanks! :)

    I am sorry to say that DRL commitments are keeping me from the necessary research to complete this DARE. mavjade, Briannakin would be willing to locate another writer to complete the DARE?

    If you can't complete the Dare, then the Dare simply goes unwritten. Remember this isn't a ficgift so there's no pressure to complete it.

    And one of us will update the index when we can.

    The index has been updated.


    Just a little reminder of the rules for writing, and that they apply at the end of the deadline. Anything that currently does not fit within those rules can be edited by the deadline and still count.
