Finally, your story cannot involve anyone under the age of 80, but must include a fight scene.

    Dare: Your dare is to write a story with the above title and including all of the below elements in the order listed.

    -A character says, "I've got a (very) good feeling about this."
    -A character steps in some sticky substance, which proves to be a hindrance later on in the story.
    -The story must include three lines from the song "Still Alive" from The Orange Box Soundtrack. (Why? Because I'm listening to it right now. Here's a link.)
    -The protagonist's weapon refuses to function at a critical moment.
    -A character says, "I've got a (very) bad feeling about this."
    And finally, the story must at least make a passing reference to the titular vinyl lawn ornaments.

    Dare: Anakin Skywalker, instead of turning to the Dark Side and aiding Palpatine, helps Mace Windu kill the Chancellor. In this he is gravely injured. He survives but carries the injury.
    Unable to continue his duties as a Jedi, write a story that shows how Anakin adapts to his place in the Order. Does he reveal the truth of his marriage to Padme? Does he leave altogther?
    Added bonus if we see little Luke and Leia.

    Do we send a dare for our own Era, or can we send in a dare for a different era? And what if we don't mind doing more than one Era?

    I've always wanted to do this! Now, I must think of something completely evil, insane and... humorous. I love humor. [face_devil]

    One question though: How specific can we get. Correct me if I'm wrong, but we should keep our dare to a max of about four things, right?

    I don't think there was a limit.

    After much meditation and deliberation, and standing on my head so the blood will flow to my brain, I have sent my dare. 8-}

    So far this hasn't been an issue, but I've gone ahead and added a rule. Once you've picked out which era you want to write in, your dare must be for that era as well.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: And I can promise you won't get the same dare that you submit. :p
