    Sorry not sorry. Gilbert and Sullivan actually comes up not infrequently in TWW.

    @Findswoman can I have the remaining #2 please?

    I love these minichallenges but sometimes one isnt enough for the muse to formulate an entire fic around!

    Hooray, more takers! :D

    Great! #4 is...

    “Poor wandering one” (Mabel and chorus, The Pirates of Penzance)
    In this lovely, lyrical song, Mabel and her sisters exhort the lonely, lost Frederic to take heart and have hope.
    Here is your lyrics link.
    Here is a video:

    Most certainly! Here’s #2:

    “When the night wind howls (The Ghosts’ High Noon)” (Sir Roderic Murgatroyd and chorus, Ruddigore)
    G&S meets Halloween in this sceery, creepy chorus of ghosts and ghouls to serenade the last living member of an ancient cursed family.
    Here is your lyrics link.

    The Badly Received Character Challenge

    Some characters are less popular than others. Sometimes the critics dislike them, sometimes fanboys and sometimes the story itself does not let them live their full potential.

    So, I came up with a little compilation of unpopular characters, based on what we already know and what I read in other places. And thought of how funny would it be to put them in stories more often. Some of these are represented on the boards here, but most aren't, really.

    1. Pick a number from 1 to 5 and I will give you a character to feature in your story.

    2. The character(s) must not be tormented.

    3. No crack!fics.

    All characters are canon, from the movies - two from the ST, two from PT and one from anthology films.


    INDEX

    1.
    2. @devilinthedetails got Rose Tico.
    3. @Findswoman got Jar Jar Binks.
    4.
    5. @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha got L3-37.

    Your character is Rose Tico. :) From everything I have read that you have written (so far), I am pretty sure that you'll ace it.

    Thanks, @Ewok Poet! I do like Rose as a character. I’ve just never written her before. So this will be a great chance to write something that celebrates her. I will do my best to do her justice.

    I think I'd like to get in on this one -- I love background characters. I'd like #4, please.

    @RX_Sith You've got another great Beatrice quote: "I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me."

    I know. We actually both asked for #1, but I changed mine since RX_Sith's post appeared first.

    And i'm fine with this. I've never written a "bad guy" type before. This should be interesting.

    Yup! Fits perfectly with my Latin phrase from Mira! I have a plan (because I can imagine The White House being damn creepy at night!).

    The Alice Cooper Song Roulette

    I've selected five songs from everybody's favorite shock rocker, the man whose onstage theatrics keep Halloween alive, honey, 365...the one, the only Alice Cooper! Pick your Poison (a number between 1 and 5), I'll give you the corresponding song, and you write a fic inspired by that song. Creative interpretations encouraged. [face_mischief]

    Happy writing, and remember, don't turn out the lights!

    1.
    2. @Ewok Poet
    Song: It Rained All Night
    3. @RX_Sith
    Song: Hey Stoopid
