    And here is Week 11/12 (the long vignette):

    https://boards.theforce.net/threads...el-run-challenge-2024.50059976/#post-58827076

    In my long vignette, both Lisa and Kristin do respond to one another, like some kind of pen pal thing. Lisa ends it by giving Kristin (who goes by Krissy) her email address in case she runs into another "monster" and needs the help of a Winchester once again.

    That was fun! Like I mentioned before, it's a good thing I have many different fandoms, since the only prompt I had trouble with was the second one (since none of my characters are that secretive, or at least not to the extent that I was getting from the prompt). Just a note that if I use Marida for any of next year's prompts, she will be paired with Thorin, not Owen (since the "alternate" timeline no longer exists, so her "marriage" to him is no longer valid, but her marriage to Thorin still is, since they were still married when she first came across the time portal in the abandoned section of Erebor). If I use Owen, he'll be paired with Claire (so back to movie canon in this particular case) and I might include their adopted daughter, Maisie Lockwood.

    As my eleventh and final story for this year’s run, I am proud to present:

    In You the Roses Speak

    It incorporates elements from a few other earlier challenges in an ad-hoc way: my OTP #32 Baci Chocolate Quotes and @ViariSkywalker ’s own Angstober 2023. Vi, whether you’re willing to count it for that one, too, is completely up to you! And thank you so much once again, ma’am, for all the amazing work you put in to sharing this stimulating and truly challenging challenge with us. =D=

    Vi, thank you so much for this practically perfect in every way challenge you were clever enough to come up with and are crazy enough to run annually :p I know how very much time and effort you put into this long before any of us even sign up, and how you continue to do all that extra work even while writing your own prompts alongside us. I could never pull that off, but you make it look easy, and you deserve all the kudos [:D]

    I too am happy to share that I've finished my long vignette with In the Gravity of You. [face_love]



    The same as with the last two years, I can't thank you enough, @ViariSkywalker, for the time, thought, and effort you put into running this challenge. The Kessel Run is truly something unique out of all the challenges on the boards. I love how it pushes me out of my comfort zone and forces me to flex writing muscles that I didn't even know I had (and a few that I didn't want to exercise to begin with, in all honesty :p) - even when doing so hurt for the effort of creation. I learn so much about myself as an author each and every time I embark on this challenge, and I'm truly proud of all of the stories that I wouldn't have ever thought to write otherwise - just as I love reading the stories from my fellow participants who are inspired in a similar such manner! This is a special challenge, and I thank you again for that with a hearty three cheers and a most exuberant round of applause. I can't wait to meet you back here again next year! [face_love] =D= [:D]

    I was just telling someone that I’m no longer writing with a sense of anxiety thanks to this challenge. I’m proud of everyone who wrote so much as part of this and I will be using my good mood to review a lot.

    Gah, posted my final vig with less than two minutes to spare: Message Received [face_relieved]


    That's it for this year's Kessel Run! Entries are closed, and I will be back to wrap things up properly and do actual replies within the next day or two (I'm a bit slammed tomorrow, so I'll do my best, but if you don't see the official wrap-up post tomorrow, it'll be Wednesday). Until then, congratulations and well done to everyone who participated! You guys are amazing! =D= [face_party]
