    Hey everyone!

    First of all, a HUGE apology for not getting that voting post up when I said I would—it’s been a packed week, with the Word Race and many RL things dominating my brain, and I’m very sorry I let this thread fall to the wayside. So, to take care of that now, here is the list of the three excellent stories submitted for our Fall 2021 Challenge: The Background OC Challenge—Plus!

    The Value of Freedom by Anedon (Ulrika Grau and Tobin Redan)
    A Lesson in Death by Kit’ (Kirsh, and his master)
    Remember by earlybird-obi-wan (Dave d'Lorrion)

    And because I dropped the ball on scheduling the voting at the right time, I shall give you all two (2) weeks from today to vote. So that’s November 22 at 11:59 pm (23:59) PST. I know you all know the rules about honest voting, socks, etc.

    The winner, as usual, will get to devise this thread’s next challenge!

    Thank you to all who took part in the challenge and in advance to all our voters—and apologies again for the tardiness! @};-

    All righty doo! Our fabulous winner @Kit' has just sent me the theme of our next challenge, and I am pleased to announce the OC Revolution's Winter (for Some of Us) 2021–22 Challenge:

    The Weather Challenge!
    With a solstice around the corner whichever hemisphere you live in, what could be a more perfect prompt! As usual, you will have eight (8) weeks to write your stories, which are due January 21, 2022, at 11:59 pm (23:59) PST! After that, we’ll start our usual two-week voting period. Happy writing to all!

    That sounds great. :)
    Just one question, does it need to be earth based weather or can it be something more out there? Was thinking about acid rain and other things they have on Eriadu as a result of their environmental collapse.

    I think something out there or star wars specific would be awesome!

    All right, everyone, it's time to VOTE on the OC Winter (for Some of Us) Challenge! We have two (2) stories in the running:

    Here's what to do: PM your vote to this sock by 11:59 pm PST on Ssturday, February 5. (So 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 February 6 (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 this if it would be helpful—just shoot me a PM.)

    :) Happy Reading and Voting! :)
