    Yes, it's absolutely fine for it be a species (sentient or otherwise) of your own creation. @Mechalich , anything to add? :)

    Yeah, creating something new is very much in the spirit of the prompt. The only real caveat I would say exists is that it should be a real, physical flesh and blood being. Bizarre Force manifestations and Lovecraftian horrors can be saved up for another challenge.

    Oh, people, people! I am so sorry! [face_blush] The upcoming due date for our Winter 2020 Challenge—which is tomorrow, January 1—completely slipped my mind (because I forgot to set reminders for myself like I usually do… bad sock, no biscuit).

    So, here are some options. I can either:
    1. keep the current due date at January 1 (tomorrow) and prepare to start voting on January 2;
    2. or, if there are still folks out there who might be interested in submitting sometime, I am willing to extend the deadline a week, through January 8.
    Please let me know what you would like to do, and I’ll proceed accordingly. Either way, there will be a voting period of the usual two weeks, and the winner will get to come up with our next challenge.

    Thank you all for bearing with me, and happy New Year! :)

    I just came across this challenge just a few minutes ago. Would be interested if I had a few more days to juggle some story ideas.

    Same here! I've been working on an entry but what with 2020 and all that I haven't finished it. A few extra days would be great!

    Seeing as there are only two entries at the moment I think we should keep it open a couple more days too. That way everyone can finish and there are a lot more fics to read and pick from...

    Hello and a very happy New Year to all! :)

    Looks like there’s a lot of interest in extending the deadline, so that is what I am going to do—our winter challenge is now due January 8, at 11:59 pm PST. (I’ve changed the date in the announcement post above, too,) I look forward to seeing what this extension will bring in! :D

    Always wonderful to see new entries come in! Got them both in the index (including a new, separate out-of-competition index).

    @madman007, just FYI in case it helps: the “link” tag doesn’t work anymore—the one you want to use instead is “url,” as in:

    Code:
    [url=https://boards.theforce.net/threads/even-enemies-winter-2020-oc-challenge-imperial-officer-encounters-an-injured-alien.50055413/]Even Enemies[/url]
    
    Hope that helps! :)

    Just wanted to say this is an awesome challenge (because non-humans involved yay!). I really, really wanted to put in an entry but DRL has given me some other priorities right now so I wish everyone the best and looking forward to reading all the entries (already looking so good!)
