    This really isn't mine to answer, so preemptive apologies all around, but since the deadline is so close and it's hit or miss to have any of our mods on at this hour, I just thought I'd say that if no time zone is specified for a board event/deadline, I always just assume that we're using board time, and I believe the boards are on Pacific Standard Time. If I'm wrong and a mod logs on before the deadline, please by all means correct me!

    @Gabri_Jade: You're probably right about the deadline being on board time. I certainly hope you are, because it's after midnight here in Mountain Time, and it isn't there.


    --------------------------------------------------

    On that note, my story is all posted--at 11:05 PM Pacific Time/12:05 AM Mountain Time: Death and the Maiden

    Also: I know it's hard for me to be objective about my stories, especially in the midnight hours, but I really think I alleviated my initial fear that I wasn't using my prompts in sufficiently original ways by then writing the most unlikeable, unpopular thing I could manage under the TOS. This is definitely all out NOT HERE TO MAKE FRIENDS writing on my part.

    So if you decide to quit reading this one, to never begin reading it in the first place, or to refrain from commenting--oh trust me, I understand.

    Good (for many of us) morning, everyone! @Gabri_Jade is absolutely right that if no time zone is specified in a challenge deadline, it is implied to be measured by the default boards time, which is Pacific Time. So I do believe you folks are all good to go! Give me a bit and I shall index your contributions. Way to go and good show by all! =D=

    And with that, the official deadline for the Something Borrowed, Something New Challenge has passed! We've had a wonderful crop of submissions, so much so that we mods now have quite the task ahead of us, trying to figure out our faves! [face_mischief]

    (Also, I have to give a round of applause to all of you absolute rockstars, pulling it off in the eleventh hour! =D= As for your question, @Pandora, @Gabri_Jade was absolutely right about using Pacific Standard Time, which you posted right in time of! :D My apologies for not including that very relevant detail in the initial instructions! :oops:)


    EDIT: Ninja'd again! [face_mischief] :p [:D]

    All right, folks! While the mods are busy with the near impossible task of deciding the winners, we have this nifty bonus challenge to share! Way back in the original post, we stated that this challenge was an opportunity for everyone to get to know your new (and old) mods a little bit better. Now, we welcome you to guess which prompt came from which mod! (Please note that we only included the prompts from the numbers that were claimed. As for the unclaimed prompts, we also would like to mention that they will always be up for grabs if anyone is ever searching for inspiration. ;))The winner with the most correct guesses will receive 48 hours of colors!

    To participate, we've set up a multiple-choice test for your convenience. Please copy and paste this form into a PM with any of the mods, and BOLD YOUR ANSWERS in the text!

    Have fun, and good luck! [face_dancing]

    Yes, yes, it's been forever and a day, I know, but you can't keep a good plot bunny down indefinitely. :p

    With that, I am more than pleased to present my response to this challenge: Your Heart Will Catch Its Breath Again - a Song!verse short story featuring Darth Maul, Mara Jade, and a bee funeral. [face_mischief] [face_love]



    So . . . are there any more belated challenge entries in the works? [face_batting]
