    Hey everyone! We are now at about the halfway point of our extra week on the winter challenge—after today there are about three more days left, and again, the new due date is Friday, January 8 at the usual 11:59 pm PST! We’ve got some excellent entries in already, and I look forward to seeing what the final lineup will look like! :cool:

    I'm 75% of the way there, so there's hope for tonight. Sometimes I miss the pre-Chyntuquita days when Mr Chyn and I were living like teenagers and ordering pizza when I wanted to write fanfic.

    This is giving me flashbacks to 10 years ago (pre-kids) when the pizza delivery guy knew my husband and me by name. :p

    And now I'm hungry.

    Good luck with the writing!

    So. Ahem. Fail. We dealt with tummy pain and puking all afternoon and night, and we just came back from the paediatrician who said it was a mild case of food poisoning.

    I'll just post my story later, is it OK to include it in the index as a late entry (out of competition of course)?

    Oh no [mention]Chyntuck [/mention] that’s not good. Hate food poisoning and when it’s kids it’s always worse. Hope they get better soon!

    Posting as myself because I just got up. @Chyntuck I’m so sorry to hear poor Chyntuquita was feeling so miserable, and I hope she is doing much better now! Yes, of course your entry can go in later as out-of-competition—that is always OK.

    All right, everyone! And now the time has come to VOTE on our OC Winter 2020–(21) Challenge! Here are the four (4) wonderful stories we have in the running:

    As well as currently one (1) non-voting entry, listed under the spoiler cut:
    Perspectives by Thumper09 (Darin Stanic, Ryyok, Fyxod)

    Here's what to do: PM your vote to this sock by 11:59 pm PST on January 23, 2021. (You’ll have about two weeks to read and vote.)

    Here's what not to do: vote more than once, vote for yourself, vote using a sock as well as your normal account, vote for something that's not on this list or that is not votable, etc., etc.

    Here's when the winner will be announced: on or about January 24 or 25 (barring all RL catastrophe).

    And here's what the winner will get: the opportunity to come up with this thread's next challenge! (I am glad to work with you on the latter if it would be helpful—just shoot me a PM.)

    Happy reading and voting! :)

    Thank you to all who voted in our Winter 2020–21 OC Challenge! It’s time to share the results. We had some great entries and the voting was very close this time, but we did have a winner, and that winner is:


    Congratulations and give yourself a hand, @madman007! =D= You get to come up with this thread’s next challenge—the sock will be in touch with you about that by PM shortly. And many thanks and well done to all who took part! :)

    (A note on the posting schedule of the next challenge: our winner is of course free to get it to me whenever he’s able, but basically, the sooner I get it, the more likely it can go up immediately. If it comes in much later, that’s fine and we can still post it—but in that case I might have to delay it somewhat so that it staggers well with the OTP thread’s challenges. Just a heads-up!)

    Thank you all once again for another awesome OC Revolution Challenge! =D=

    New challenge time, everybody! For our 1st Quarter 2021 Challenge, our last winner, @madman007, has provided us with something I think we all could use right about now...

    [face_laugh]THE COMEDY CHALLENGE![face_rofl]
    And madman007 adds that those methods of comedy are of course just suggestions and you’re not at all limited to them—any type of comedy is welcome here! Ditto any era of the SW timeline, any canonicity (including AUs), and non-SW fandoms, too. The only limit is, as always, the TOS.

    Stories are due in the usual eight (8) weeks, on Monday, March 22, at 11:59 pm (23:59) PST. Let either madman007 or me know if you have any questions. And above all, HAVE FUN! [face_dancing]

    Challenge answered - hopefully it's actually funny.

    Also, at least the food poisoning was good for something.

    Paronomasia starring Estra, Nicco and Zallie.

    Summary: Nicco warns his sister not to put herself or her new baby in danger, as Del goes on a rampage with his new found power...
