    Many people participating in the Fan Fiction Survey have made the comment that they would like for the challenges to start back. With the blessing of Healer_Leona, I'm taking up the challenge (pardon the pun) of starting the NEW challenge thread.

    Therefore:

    Welcome to the NEW Challenge Thread!

    Challenges will be issued once every two weeks--but there's no expiration on the challenges! You can continue to answer previous challenges than the one for the two week period!

    PM the link to your challenge fic to me, CarrKicksDoor, or post it here in the thread. I'll be keeping a master index of challenge fics here in the first post.

    If you don't have time to do a challenge, but you have a plot bunny anyway, post it here for someone else to take up as well!

    So, let's start the challenges!

    Challenge for the weeks of 26 June-11 July

    We're back! And it's coming up on that American holiday of Independence Day, so let's get started with something appropriate. Write a vignette or short story dealing with some kind of breaking free and use some shade of red, white, and blue in it. The only other criteria? Something has to go boom.

    Have a happy holiday!

    Previous Challenges

    Challenge for the weeks of 19 May-26 June

    In AotC, Anakin comments that he doesn't like sand because it's too rough. HOw do other characters react with sand? The challenge is to write any character or characters (except Anakin Skywalker) in a story involving sand (on Tatooine, on a beach, etc.).

    Challenge for the weeks of 2 May-19 May

    Put your favorite character together in a romantic situation with someone you don't like her/him with, and make it a genuine relationship.

    Challenge for the weeks of 18 April-2 May

    Well, it's that time again--April showers bring May flowers and all (unless, I suppose, you live in Australia, but that's beside the point.) and the flowers and the green are indeed coming up. Your challenge is this, a variation on one that I participated in last year: S/He brought me flowers. One character brings flowers to another--and to throw one last twist in there--you have to use three synonyms for green.

    Challenge for the weeks of 4 April-18 April

    Fire is something that can be used in many different ways--weapons fire, burning houses or trees, or even a bonfire. But what's really challenging is this--take the character you hate the most and put them together with fire (in a way that does not include burning them with it).

    Awesome, Ty-Gon! I was lurking on that vignette yesterday, and I really liked it. I'll index it in the first post as soon as I get home from school this afternoon. :)

    Okay, everyone! The challenge index has been updated with Ty-Gon and my own entry. Hope you all enjoy them greatly. And you can always do as Ty-Gon did and combine more than one challenge...there are plenty of other great challenges to take on as well!

    Hmmm, bounty hunters, eh? Sadly, I can't write evil characters to save my skin... I may just have to peak in on the challenge stories though, they're always entertaining.

    New challenge is up! Hopefully more people will get bitten by the plot bunny this week. Don't forget that older challenges are absolutely still fair game!

    Yeah, it would be really cool if someone else would do one of these--I'd like to read a different perspective.

    I'm working on it. I'd like to try the doppelganger one too. I have a feeling I'll just be collecting these until I have the time to actually sit down and write.
