    @DarthIshtar An excellent choice!:D

    Your quote is Obi-Wan's sly slam at Jar Jar in TPM: "Why do I sense we've picked up another pathetic lifeform?"

    Haha. Never thought of that as a reference to Jar-Jar. I assumed this was a long history of Qui-Gon never turning down a chance to trick someone into a better life. :) Going to need a think on this. Thanks.

    @earlybird-obi-wan Excellent to have you joining in the fun as well:cool:

    Your sassy Obi-Wan quote is also from TPM:

    "The negotiations were short."

    Yay, the Mini-Games are back! I'm well on my way to using up the prompts I already have from past challenges, so time to stock up on new ones.

    @devilinthedetails Can I please have #2 from the Obi-Wan Kenobi Sass Master Challenge? And while I'm at it, I might also take #2 from the Edgar Allan Poe Poetry Challenge if you still have that list.

    @UltramassiveUbersue I'd like to take an option on "Palpatine is actually a cat all along" from the Abominable Bunny Challenge please :)

    @Kit' I don't normally do well with song prompts, but I really liked what I saw in your Australian Song Challenge. Can I have #2 please?

    I'll be back with a challenge of my own sometime later today.

    @ConservativeJedi321 Yours sounds very tempting, but I'm afraid that I'm in exactly the wrong age bracket for it and chances are I won't have seen the movies and shows on your list. I'll wait to see a few of the prompts to get a better idea of the sort of thing you have in there before I sign up.

    Oooo! You got one of my favourites! This is Sound of Then by GANGgajang. The song is better known as This is Australia. This is a classic rock melody which just embodies what it feels like to live through an Australian summer.

    @Chyntuck So pleased to have you joining the Obi-Wan Kenobi Sass Master Challenge, and very excited indeed to have you signing up for the Edgar Allan Poe Challenge as well[:D]

    Your sassy Obi-Wan Kenobi quote is from ROTS and is one of those lines that no pilot or passenger wants to hear:

    "Not to worry. We're still flying half a ship."

    Your Edgar Allan Poe quote is the last, haunting verses of Annabel Lee, possibly Edgar Allan Poe's most romantic poem:

    "And so all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
    Of my darling--my darling--my life and my bride,
    In her sepulchre there by the sea--
    In her tomb by the sounding sea."

    Oh wow. Both are great prompts, and I'm very lucky that I'm not expected to use them in the same story :p Thank you @devilinthedetails !

    @RX_Sith You received possibly the most humorous application of the Jedi mind trick in history:

    "You want to go home and rethink your life."

    Enjoy! :D

    @Chyntuck So glad you like both your prompts, and I hope they will inspire some wonderful stories from you! [face_dancing]

    I recognize mine is somewhat of a niche topic that is most likely to appeal to a certain subset of my own generation.
    If it sooths any concerns each of my topic does have a YouTube video link to the scene in question and I'd happily consult based on what I know.
    I understand hesitation, however.
    Thanks for your consideration and support @Chyntuck!

    Awesome @ViariSkywalker ! This is a fun movie I always come back to for the feels.

    The Movie
    1. Meet The Robinsons
    The Context
    Self-doubting twelve-year-old inventor Lewis is brought to the future by the quirky and ever mischievous Wilbur Robinson where he meets the other boys equally bizarre family and learns some things about himself as well.
    [​IMG]
    The Scene
    “I Never thought my dad would be my best friend.”

    Greater Context If Needed

    @ConservativeJedi321 - Ha, nice! I remember seeing the trailer for Meet the Robinsons before it came out, but I didn't see the movie itself until nearly a decade later when my kids found it on Netflix. :p IIRC, I got a little misty-eyed at that ending. Thanks for the inspiration and for reminding me that I need to watch this movie again! :D

    Good to see you like your prompt @ViariSkywalker! Convenient that you have some experience telling time travel stories. :p (Not that it is necessary for this challenge, I'm more interested in recreating the feels than the plot). Really, I could just as easily have chosen the whole ending scene because it is an emotional rollercoaster that is done so well. It would just be a lot harder to model a fic on it without losing a lot of the nuances. Hence, I skimmed it down to just the scene on the orphanage roof.

    Great to have you on board @Raissa Baiard!
    You chose a good one too, an action-packed series but a subtle scene that changes things forever!
    The Series:
    4. Dany Phantom
    [​IMG]

    Context:
    Danny is no ordinary kid, he's got a secret. Thanks to a freak accident he's half ghost! Now he's responsible for keeping all the other villainous ghosts in line. With just his two best friends backing him up he needs to balance his crazy ghost obsessed parents, school life, and super heroing all at once! Except unknown to him he has someone else in his corner covering for him on the side....

    The Scene:
    “How long have you known?”

    The random number generator gave me 2 - 2 - 3 - 2 - 3 - 4, meaning: someone who leaps, a mask, on borrowed time, at a crossroads, for chance, in more than 5,000 words. No idea what I can do with that, but I'm sure I'll come up with something!
