    @Pandora - My réponse to the classical music challenge - The choices we make. I used it together with the OC challenge on changing a characters allegiance/alignment which turned out to be really fun as the music fit the idea really well.

    @Mira_Jade The haiku challenge is another absolutely amazing idea! Those haikus are simply stunning. [face_love] I really, really shouldn't, but...that's never stopped me from doing anything before. [face_laugh] Could I have #4, please? But if someone else wants it, feel free to give it to them instead.

    And I second @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha's suggestion to share any other lovely inspiring haikus you care to. [face_batting]:D

    Aw, thanks! I'm glad you like the challenge, and of course you can have #4! You can never have too many prompts, I say! [face_mischief] :p Your haiku is . . .

    how holy a place
    green leaves, young leaves, and through them
    the sunlight now bursts

    And I did put just a few more haiku under a spoiler tag in the OP, as requested - they were on my list but didn't quite make the cut. Feel free to use them however you'd like! [face_love]

    I also have (somewhat belatedly :oops:) added @mavjade's and @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha's fabulous stories to their respective indexes, so those should all be current now! That said, it really is great seeing the variety of stories being written for these challenges, and I can't wait to see what comes next! Keep 'em coming, all! :D [face_dancing] [:D]

    @Pandora for your classical music challenge, if #1 is available, I'd like it please [face_batting]

    @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha : It is indeed available, and now it is yours! You have received Summer (from the Four Seasons) by Antonio Vivaldi.

    -------

    @Kit' : I have (with some delay--blame the fact that I am reduced to borrowing computer time on my father's WindowsXP desktop) added your story to the index, and "liked" it. It may take me a while--what with the aforementioned limited computer access--but I will read and comment on it, and every story posted for my challenge, eventually.

    It's all good @Pandora. Limited time and sharing computers always sucks. If you get time that's amazing but if you don't that's all good too. Please don't stress out on my behalf. @};-

    Thank you so much for the lovely haiku prompt and for sharing the extra haikus, @Mira_Jade! They are all so beautiful. [:D][face_love]

    And I finally wrote something for one of my previous prompts! A Star Wars ficlet even! :D

    All I Remember Are The Dreams In The Mist is my offering for the beautiful Language of Flowers challenge. Thank you so much for coming up with it!

    Oh! And what a beautiful SW ficlet that was! I'm thrilled that you found the prompts so inspiring. I've added your story to the index, along with @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha's equally lovely fic, too. [face_love] =D= [:D]

    Love this idea! Could I take the last remaining spot please?

    Also, if a challenge does not specifically say whether the resulting piece must be specifically Star Wars related or can be any fandom, do I assume the latter?

    You got...

    Linkin Park – “Numb”

    And yes, any fandom is fine.

    Music is the one thing that consistently inspires me to write and keeps me going in general. I love all sorts of music but there are a few songs and artists who hold a special place in my heart. One of those artists is Johannes Linstead and his "guitar of fire". Sultry, summery, romantic, passionate, full of life - I love it all. [face_love]

    So, without further ado, I give you the Guitar of Fire Roulette! Pick a number between 1 and 5, I'll assign you one of these gorgeous guitar pieces, and you write a fic inspired by it. Once you've written your fic and posted a link, I'll add it to the index!

    I also want to add that this challenge was partly inspired by @Pandora's classical music challenge, which proves you don't need words to inspire wonderful stories. So happy writing, and happy listening, and thank you for participating! :)

    Participants:
    1.
    2. @Mira_Jade
    Song: Bewitched
    3. @RX_Sith
    Song: Flows Like Water
    4. @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha
    Song: Hour of the Lamps

    Oh, what a beautiful contribution! I've added that to the index! :D [face_love]


    And, @amidalachick, I would love to take #2 in your Guitar of Fire roulette! Writing for the Classical Music Challenge was one of the most interesting things my muse has done in a while, and I would love some more inspiration along those lines! :D

    Even though this has gone very quiet I suddenly had inspiration late last night for another challenge and the amazing @Briannakin has let me do it!

    So, this is the nursery rhyme challenge. If you choose to accept it, you will be given one of the many, many nursery rhymes but it won't be the very, very well known ones of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or Humpty Dumpty. Instead I've gone for some of the less well known ones for inspiration. Some have a definite theme and others not so much but hopefully they will inspire you to create an amazing fanfic!

    So may I present to you

    The Nursery Rhyme Challenge!

    1. @Raissa Baiard with One for Sorrow
    2. @devilinthedetails with What are little boys made of
    3. @brodiew with One Moonshiny Night
    4. @Pandora with Roses are Red
    5. @RX_Sith with Lady Bird, Lady Bird

    Completed challenges

    Number 5 is an oldie but a goody. [face_love]

    Lady Bird, Lady Bird

    Ladybird, ladybird fly away home,
    Your house is on fire and your children are gone,
    All except one, and her name is Ann,
    And she hid under the baking pan.​

    Hopefully this one gives you a lot of inspiration - particularly around gender norms [face_love]

    What are little boys made of

    What are little boys made of?
    What are little boys made of?
    Snips and snails
    And puppy-dogs' tails
    That's what little boys are made of

    What are little girls made of?
    What are little girls made of?
    Sugar and spice
    And all things nice
    That's what little girls are made of[
