    Long ago I promised to write a fic for *Disco Duck". An epic Howard the Duck Meets Jabba The Hutt story.

    I started it.
    It was terrible.
    One day I will get a better angle and try again.

    OK, it's done.Brainstorming for this challenge inspired me to create a music group, a backstory for my Jedi alter-ego's eventual love interest/husband, and even led to ideas for what exactly she's going to be doing post-Order 66.
    Pretty good for such a dumb song.
    Thank yous to @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha for the initial once-over, and huge, huge thanks to @Findswoman for super in-depth ultra beta-reading!

    @Vek Talis when I click on the link, it says "Error, page not found". Does anyone have this problem, or it just me?

    So, rather like a one-hit wonder, this thread randomly came to my attention again :D I realized that I needed to update the index and that there are still THREE AWESOMELY OFFBEAT HITS LEFT !1!!1 (plus a couple extras I had in reserve, just in case). Anyone who has a prompt they don't feel they will use is welcome to return it; and it will be fed and cared for until we can find it a loving home. Or something like that.

    Anyone is welcome to pick one of these last three songs, even if you'e already participated in the challenge, and of course, you're also welcome to do ad hoc entries inspired by any of the titles that have been claimed.

    How do feel about angst? Your song is Teen Angel by Mark Dinning (1960)

    Sure, that’s fine. (Sorry for the double post, but I couldn’t add the quote to my previous post)

    Oh man, that's an awesome song!

    Is 16 still free? I'll take a second one....'cause, you know, I'm a sucker for taking on challenges that I'm only mediocre at finishing.

    Sure is! You are the lucky recipient of : Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett (1962)

    And that is the last one on the list! I have two extras, though, if anyone is interested.

    Apparently angst agrees with me.

    I wrote a piece with Cerasi and Nield from the Jedi Apprentice books inspired by this song:

    Eulogy to the Young

    Ah, the Graveyard Smash! It'll be the hit of the land, you know. I wonder how well Tenel Ka can do the Transylvania Twist? ('Cause, you know, there's no way this won't be a Dathomiri story)
