    After writing Teneniel Djo in my fic "Balance Point" and compiling the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Fan_Fiction_Resource/b10304/18280917/?2]Crystal Reef Palace Auditorium[/link], it prompted me to think about TD characterisation and involvement in Star Wars fan fiction. Not surprisingly, no one has really focused extensively on TD. The same can be said for the actual novels.

    So driven by my new interest in the Queen Mother, I challenged a few friends to write a TD story. It can be any length and there are no conditions ? well, except for the fact that TD needs to be the central character! If they wanted, I?d give them a sentence they had to use in their ?fic. Five people (excluding myself) are participating.

    Would you like to participate? I've jokingly call it the ?Write Teneniel Djo or DIE!? challenge. I?ve been told it?s catchy :p. All you need to do is post your story to the relevant forum (Beyond usually) and then place a link here. This thread is for TD characterisation if you become stuck.

    I?m currently trying to work on a TD/Ta?a Chume confrontation vignette.

    So who?s in? :D

    Well, you already know I'm in. ;) My story should be up in a few days. I'm really looking forward to reading everyone else's. TD's a fascinating character if you give her a chance--there's a lot of room for expansion on the base the EU's given us.

    Good luck, everyone! :)

    TD's a fascinating character if you give her a chance--there's a lot of room for expansion on the base the EU's given us. ? Couldn?t? agree more. For some reason, I picture TD with a very dry, very subtle, very well masked sense of humour. I think we all know that she?s formal, so perhaps another challenge could focus on writing TD humour.

    I watched a movie ?The Winslow Boy? the other day (based on a 1940 play, I believe) and the reserved and proper manner in which they spoke made me want to write my TD challenge ?fic. Early 20th century London British as the Hapan royal house? Thoughts?

    I actually co-wrote a story that focused on Teneniel Djo a few years ago. I'll have to look for it in the Classic Fanfic forum. :)

    I?m intrigued, Geith :).

    Can I interest you in the TD challenge? ;) Seriously, the more the merrier! And having previous TD writing experience is a plus.

    I would be happy to participate, Amidala_Skywalker. :)

    I love the idea of a Teneniel/Ta'a Chume confrontation. In fact, I may actually have an idea with that. I just need to start brainstorming...

    After editing mine because I kept thinking Teneniel was spelled with an A at the end, I finally got my challenge fic up.

    Well, mine got really long, so I decided to post it in shorter segments. The first one is up here: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Beyond_the_Saga/b10477/18335027/?0]Theories of Sedition[/link]. More will follow soon! *toddles off to read Carr's fic*

    Hmmm...

    I'm always up for a challenge. I think I'll give this a try, but I won't promise when I can get it done. I'm in the middle of writing five different stories right now. I must be insane, but I'd like to take a shot at this one, too. I think I had better read some of the EU books again.

    I wrote a fic that was mostly about Teneniel awhile ago, but decided against posting it. Maybe I'll bring it out now.

    Congratulations to CarrKicksDoor and Xaara for writing their challenge ?fic! I?ve added the links to the first post.

    VaderLVR, join in if you can :).

    Why did you decide against posting it, PunkRockRebel? In any case, do post :).

    Okay... ask an Ewok to write a Teneniel Djo 'fic, and you get [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Beyond_the_Saga/b10477/18339255/]Wants And Gets[/link]: implied Teneniel Djo/Luke Skywalker, non AU...

    Thanks, Ams for the challenge - I really enjoyed writing this, and the other 'fic looks rather good fun, too... :D

    Hmmm, is there a deadline for this, or can I still submit one if I decide to write one?

    Interesting challenge. I suppose I can rewrite my Isolder/big brother one shot from Teneniel's POV, if that is ok. Who thinks we should start a thread for anything and everything that has to do with Hapes and Dathomir? All I have is a family tree (but the most inclusive one ever pieced together).

    When I first saw this, I got the idea to include Teneniel in my fanfic. :D I don't know if it really meets the challenge or not but Teneniel is included in my latest (2/25) post here: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=18322750&start=18540593]http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=18322750&start=18540593[/link]

    (hopefully that takes people to the right post but if it doesn't I apologize *waves fist a mark-up codes*)
