    The Beatles songs gave me some nice inspirations and I have included four songs in this little vignette with Zora (Siri)

    Yes, but I'd been putting that 2nd 'c' in all this time and you didn't correct me until this last time. I'd put it in the edited post where I list all the entries with the 2nd 'c' in place from your entry from the first challenge. I guess you either didn't notice, or you just forgave it the first time. :D

    Speaking of putting in the entries, I just entered the first two entries in the third post. Here's hoping we'll get more entries this time!

    I'm seriously at a loss for words with this challenge. I've been trying to mull it over in my head and still nothing. Luckily we have until the end of May. I might get something by then.

    Who knows, by the time 31 more days are up, you will have written two responses for the challenge. :D

    Oh, btw, I put the wrong link for my response, [link=http://boards.theforce.net/a/b10476/28376392/]Gather Round All You Clones[/link]... I'd accidently put in the link for a fic that was for a different challenge. [face_blush]

    If anyone sees any mistakes I make in indexing the challenge stories, do not be shy in correcting me.

    I was wondering what everyone thought of the songs and musicals I've been choosing for these challenges. I shy away from using the title songs to the musicals, not wanting to be obvious, and also choose songs that have potential Star Wars tie-ins.

    I have a list of songs from musicals for future challenges, but I am also open to suggestions and ways to make the challenges fresh. :)

    I think they are good. Title ones would be so "already done." I also like when you pick something which has multiple ways to tie into star wars. Not just limited to one group or era. It helps out alot. Although, I don't write much but saga stuff. It's nice to be able to step out if I want to.

    Just my two cents.

    Voting ends tonight at midnight! So far no one has voted! Don't make me chose on my own... if I do, it will be first come first serve (first one that posted their story... who isn't me... wins).

    earlybird-obi-wan has won with [link=http://boards.theforce.net/the_saga/b10476/28385422/p1/?1]Something to Remember[/link]. Congratulations :D =D=

    Since the awards nominations and ceremonies are coming up, and it seems people have lost interest, I am going to hold off on the next challenge until the end of August.

    My appologise for not participating recently. Between lack of inspiration and lack of time, it was hard to get something up. :p I'll try better next time. :)

    I didn't mean to say lack of interest. I know that many were busy with other things... like school and such. Now school is starting again soon, but hopefully we can have more participants and voters this time around. :)

    So, here's the new challenge...

    [hl=yellow]The "Bring Him Home" challenge.[/hl]

    Use the lyrics of [link=http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/l/les_miserables/bring_him_home.html]"Bring Him Home"[/link] from Les Miserables to inspire any genre writing.

    Don't forget to link your story here. :)

    I'm so glad I decided to pop in here. Les Mis is my all time favorite musical, and Bring Him Home is a song that gets to me.

    I have a question though. Do we have to use the lyrics in the fic? Or can we just use them as inspiration?

    [blockquote]The "Bring Him Home" challenge.

    Use the lyrics of "Bring Him Home" from Les Miserables to inspire any genre writing.
    [/blockquote]

    The word as I see it is "inspire" but you can PM the sock for clarification.
