    My (late) story is up: First Son. After asking about non-Star Wars, I ended up doing a Star Wars story. [face_thinking] The muse is a fickle thing. 8-}

    Alrighty, we have our winners! Everyone, please put your hands together for . . .

    Our First Place story: An Imperial Parody by @devilinthedetails

    Then, we have a three way tie for Second Place: Pun Away by @Kit', The Treasure by @Jedi_Lover, and Weird Wormholes! by @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha!

    For our Mods' Choice of Best Dare, @Raissa Baiard is our winner for her clever and zany dare. That is definitely one for the books if ever there was one!​


    Thank you all for participating, and for all of the great fun you brought to the boards! Your PMs about colors will be incoming just as fast as I can type them.

    And remember, even if you didn't write for your dare on time, we would still love to see what you come up with! Please share a link with your story here with us, and we will still add it to the Index as a belated entry! [:D]

    Then, last but certainly not least, for those of you who are interested we also have the complete list of dares from this year! So you know who to blame for the insanity you were forced to write. :p [face_mischief]

    From brodiew:

    * A run in with the law
    * A treasure chest
    *Han and Poe
    * line of dialogue: 'I've had better partners.'
    * a nerf hair longcoat
    * a Force Ghost cameo

    From Cowgirl Jedi 1701:

    Your story may be set in any era, and may be Legends, NuCanon, or a mix of both, but it must include the following things:
    • A pet
    • A group of friends singing a song together
    • The word "donnybrook"
    • A WTF moment
    • A practical joke
    • Someone gets drunk
    • Someone gets a makeover
    • As many bad puns as you can manage
    From devilinthedetails:

    I dare you to write a Star Wars story inspired by Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet. Your story may be set in any era (Before the Saga, Saga-PT, Saga-OT, Saga-ST, Beyond the Saga, Before the Saga-Legends, Beyond the Saga-Legends) and you may use any characters from the Star Wars movies, Legends, or New Canon books. To ensure your story is inspired by Hamlet, you must include the following elements:

    1. A ghost appears.
    2. A character pretends to be insane.
    3. A character spies on another character and gets caught in the act.
    4. A play is performed.
    5. A character hands out very symbolic flowers.
    6. A character soliloquizes.
    7. A character offers this advice to another character: "Neither a borrower nor a lender be."
    8. A character stares at a skull.

    From Jedi_Lover:

    I would like to see a story from the Expanded Universe-Legends: Beyond the Saga that takes place between The Last Command and Specter of the Past (meaning Luke and Mara are not dating). Or an AU with Mara and Luke where they are not dating prior to the start of the story. I would like a situation where Mara and Luke are both acting completely opposite of what they would normally do. It could be because of some Force thing or a curse or witchcraft or whatever, but they are both acting completely out of character…but they somehow still end up together. Then when the curse/witchcraft/Force thingy is over they go back to the way they were and have to face the consequences…if there are consequences.

    From Kit':

    The story ends in a graveyard. The story takes place in mid-winter. The story must involve a bottle of wine at the end.

    From Raissa Baiard:

    I dare you to write a story in which, due to budget constraints, housing allowances for Imperial officers have been cut, forcing Darth Vader, Maul, and Grand Admiral Thrawn to rent a suburban condo together. Your story must include elements inspired by the following Sims screenshots:
    (Vader eats grilled cheese)
    (Maul plays acoustic guitar)
    (Thrawn punches a giant teddy bear)

    Bonus points if you have the characters wearing the outfits in the screenshots!

    From Tarsier:

    I dare someone to write a "Roshomon-style" story, played for laughs. Ideally it will feature Luke and Mara between TTT and HoT, but it doesn't have to.
    (If you need inspiration, check out the X-Files episode Bad Blood (aka the best X-Files episode).)

    From WarmNyota_SweetAyesha:

    * A cooking fiasco
    * Something goes wrong /haywire with the SW version of the laptop ;)
    * Baby sitting woes or youngling hijinks

    * A pillow fight
    * A hug

    Optional but I think it would be cool: time travel [face_laugh]

    Thanks for another awesome Dare Challenge, everyone! We can't wait to see you again next time. [face_mischief] [face_devil] [:D]

    Congratulations to all winners and to all who came up with such challenging and unique dares! @Raissa Baiard did indeed come up with a very clever and zany desire that inspired me to write a parody I never would've imagined otherwise, so hats off to her.

    Wow! Thank you very much! :D I’m thrilled that you liked my odd little dare; I love playing the Sims with the characters from Star Wars because they’ll do such bizarre things (Sim!Kanan likes to “troll teh forums”—spelled like that—whenever I’m not paying attention :p )I’ve gotten some priceless screenshots that seemed like perfect fodder for crack!fic. I’m glad you thought so, too!

    ‘And congratulations to @devilinthedetails. You brought my dare so hilariously to life—I couldn’t have asked for more ^:)^

    Congrats to @devilinthedetails for taking an excellent prompt and just absolutely nailing it with one of the funniest fanfics of all time! =D= And to @Kit', @Jedi_Lover, and @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha for your awesome stories too! The one thing these all ended up having in common is a fantastic sense of humor. :D And congrats to @Raissa Baiard on her prompt and on her inimitable Sims-running. I don't know how you got to Darth Maul playing acoustic guitar but I take my cap off to you. [face_rofl]
