    Okay, by now must of us have the Star Wars saga memorized. We've seen all of the movies at least a thousand times; we have characters we love or love to loathe. And we have all of the classic lines memorized and ready for a witty insert at a moment's notice.

    I'm a sucker for a good line, and Star Wars has given us so many. But what about the rest of the movie world? What can the talents of TF.N's fan fic writers come up with when given a quote from a movie they may not have even heard of, I wonder? [face_thinking]

    To answer those questions and more, I proudly present Quotations Roulette ? The non-SW Movie Version, a challenge in which I give you a quote and you give me a story to go with it. (Many of you will remember the Quotations Roulette Challenge hosted by Vader_incarnate. With her permission, I have borrowed the idea and put my own spin on it) ;)

    I have a document with 100 quotes from non-SW movies (Yes, some, but not all, were books before they were movies.) You will choose a number between 1 and 100 inclusive, and I will give you the corresponding quote, with which you will write a fic of any length, time period, pairing, genre, whatever.

    What's the catch??

    You don't know what kind of quote you're going to get. Some of these quotes are about love or war or children or happiness or a thousand other of 'the usual' things. And you may or may not have seen or even heard of the movie it's from. Some will be pretty obvious what movie they're from, others probably won't be.

    And yes, I am absolutely evil and make no attempt to hide it whatsoever. [face_devil]


    Directions:

    1. REPLY to this thread with a number between 1 and 100 if you would like to participate. As soon as possible, I contact you with the corresponding quote on my list. I will try to keep the first post updated with who has what number, etc.

    2. WRITE a fic by whenever. It must relate to the quote in some way shape or form, though it doesn't have to include it. Yes, even if you've never heard the line or seen the movie. I don't care what pairing, length, genre, etc.

    3. Responses MUST include the name of the challenge in the title bar. In your fic, INCLUDE the original quote and the movie it's from, as well as a link back to this thread.

    4. So that your hard work may be included in the Challenges Index Thread, when you have finished, PM me and include a broken link to your fic and the indexing info, i.e.

    Title:
    Author:
    Notes: (Include your quote and the movie it is from here.)

    5. And, of course, HAVE FUN. There are no prizes, no awards, nothing save for a knowledge that you flexed your creative muscles and completed a challenge and wrote a fic about a quote from some movie you may or may not have seen.

    Best of luck and have fun.

    F.A.Q.

    Does my story have to contain the quote exactly?
    While it's usually better if you can fit the quote into the story somewhere, you don't have to. Some quotes just don't lend themselves too well to the SW universe, especially if they're rather "earthy." It is okay to have your story be "inspired by" the quote you received.

    Do I have to include the name of the movie the quote came from in the story?
    No, but please be sure to include it along with the quote in the Notes section preceding your story.

    I've never even heard of this movie, let alone seen it! Do I still have to use my quote, or can I get a new one?
    To be fair to everyone, unless your quote contains words which you are genuinely uncomfortable using or which violate the Words List (Most of the quotes have been screened and should be okay. When in doubt ask) please stick to the quote you received.

    Why aren't there any quotes from the Star Wars movies?
    Because that would be too easy :p

    Where can I find

    I'm SO in.

    Every time I see my brothers somehow, someway, someone throws a movie quote into the conversation setting off the rest of us. For the rest of the night that's all we'd do, quotes from movies, even those not worthy of AFI's top 100.

    I can't wait to see what everyone gets, but for me. I'd like to stick with my lucky number 64 please.

    This looks like a lot of fun! I'm in as well. Hook me up with #22!

    I have to say most of my favorite quotes these days are coming from one sourse: 24

    They are called Bauerisms. Named, of course, for the title character of 24, Jack Bauer.

    Sample:

    Jack Bauer: The only reason that you're conscious right now is because I don't want to carry you.

    I opted with #22 because it is my favorite, but 24 also has a special place in my heart.
