Come on guys, if I could write the dare that I got, you can definitely do it.
lol, that's right... there are some wacky dares this year - part of the fun - but those us us who've fnished are rootin for those of you still working.
My story is up.
EDIT: I messed up link first time. Just saw it

Man, had to dredge up information from English class five years ago for that one.
i will have it up by tomorrow I promise! I'll even work on it tonight just to have it in by tomorrow!!!
I am such a procrastinator!

Well done, anon prompter. Well done. Now I can finally get back to reading everyone's responses; I've fallen woefully behind on that.
Sliding in under the deadline!
That was a blast, as usual.
Mine is half-way done and will be up at some point tonight.
I thought I was all prepared by taking the day off to work on it and what happens? Emergency root canal
Thankfully, I get to go to a specialist this time and won't feel a thing
And it's always possible the drugs will equal a really funny (or wacky) story. We'll see...
To everyone else, don't let the deadline scare you (or your muse) you can do it!!
And if you don't finish, I know where to find you.
Whew - I'm done!

I definitely won't have it in tonight. I had an interview today and that is all my brain thought about. Plus my muse is being finicky but no worries it will be written. I just can't say when.
Hopefully now you will behave muse.
I humbly present: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/the_saga/b10476/31656449/p1/]Area 59[/link]
It was a first for me. Clones! And Kamino!
I can't say I'm that thrilled with this, but my muse did not want to behave. Still, I gave it my all.

This is just a really weird response...to a weird and funny challenge.
The Dare Challenge is now officially closed to entries eligible for winning.
Rules for Voting
1. ONLY the people who completed and posted their Dare are allowed to vote. If someone else does vote, it will not be counted. You may only vote once.
2. You may send your vote to any fanfic mod. Please include the name of the story and the author.
3. Hopefully, it should go without saying but please do not vote for someone just because you are friends, vote for the person who wrote the best story given their dare. We obviously can't tell why you are voting for someone but it takes all the fun out of it!
4. Votes must be received by: 11:59 board time on Friday, April 22nd.
The following are the Dares eligible to be voted on, and those who are on this list are allowed to vote. If your story should be here and it isn't, please let us know!

Yikes! Wow... so many awesome dares this year and it's going to be so hard to choose just one - and I'm not yet done reading them! Ack!
Fantastic job everyone! Well done, well done; the dares this year were nuts!
So, when do we get to out our dares as the ones we sent in?
*looks at list a third time...* Er... Mav, you have a typo in there...
You can tell the person in their story thread if you so wish at any time but we'll post the entire list when we post the winners.
What, you didn't change your name to 32??
I fixed it!
As far as I can find, no one wrote mine. For anyone who's interested, here's what it was:
Write a romantic interlude between Luke and Ysanne Isard. It must get somewhat intimate, but not break boards.theforce.net TOS. All intimacy must be on-screen (i.e. You cannot have them jump from scene 1 to having them wake up next to each other in the Imperial Palace or something to that effect). Wedge Antilles must act in a 'wingman' capacity at some point. All of this must be a songfic set to the lyrics of Puccini's "Nessun Dorma" from Turandot and the storyline must reflect the original plotline and intentions of that song. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nessun_dorma. In addition, all of Luke's lines of dialogue must rhyme with each other. All of Isard's lines must start with a succeeding letter of the alphabet. (i.e. "All right, we can do this the hard way or...never mind there is no hard way." "Because I don't believe in taking things easy." "Certainly.", etc.) The fic must be 37 words short of the maximum length.[/hl]
Reminder, your votes are due by 11:59 pm Friday April 22nd!
There are several people who are eligible to vote who haven't and it's a very close race at this point, so get your vote on people!!
Bringing to the top--
Don't forget to vote!
First of all congratulations to everyone who got their dares written, there were some crazy dares this year! It was apparently a very hard choice because the majority of stories received at least one vote.
The WINNER of the 2011 Dare Challenge and one week of colors is...
TheMacUnleashed with "The True Tale of Anakin's Scar"
Second Place and 72 hours of colors goes to..
FelsGoddess with "Hunt for Excalibur"
JediMara77 with "Iridonian Rhapsody"
The winner with the Most Outrageous Dare is...
Just let us know what colors and icons we need to wear for the next week, Bri.
Dare lists will be up after we've had a little time to celebrate the winners!
(Note: Since there was a tie for second place, no third place colors will be given. There would have been a six way tie for it! )
Thank you everyone for the votes!
And congrats FelsGoddess and TheMacUnleashed!
Congrats to all the winners
