    I was thinking the other day, just what I would ask the next time this came around to me... (*remembers seeing something about this not being canon characters - drat*)

    *shrugs*

    I'm going to have to do some research to find someone to tag.

    @Ewok Poet - Question #9 for your Ewok wife Kerida. Are they a good dancer?

    Please see previous screen for the OC "Ask Game", if you are unsure what is going on.

    Apologies for the double post. Tag alerts don't seem to work for me, when I try to edit them into an existing post.

    I apologise for being late to this myself and keeping you waiting and I thank @Findswoman for her heads-up about this. I hope I'm doing this right.

    No.

    Since I need to catch-up with newer OCs, didn't read anything in 2018 and don't remember anything I read (or wrote!) in 2017, a question for @divapilot, regarding her character Blue from the Blue/Bree series.

    11. Do they have a high or low tolerance for pain?

    Thank you, @Ewok Poet!

    My question was for Blue, #11: Do they have a high or low tolerance for pain?

    Blue's been through a lot. He barely survived a speeder crash when he was 20, and he's dealt with the residual pain of that injury for a long time. Due to that crash, he has a durasteel bar in his right leg where his tibia ought to be, and it causes him to limp, so he has that pain that he ignores. He's gotten into fights and scrapes, so he can deal with the physical pain. In terms of physical pain, he has a fairly high tolerance.
    Emotional pain is a whole other deal. He has been betrayed badly in the past and it makes him very reticent to trust people. But when he does, he goes all in and he then lives in fear that he will be rejected. He has dealt with that pain by self-medicating all the way into addiction. Sometimes it's tempting for him to be drunk or high than to deal with the ugly realities of life. He's working on it, though.

    My question is for @AzureAngel2 , for Nagina: #7: What cheers them up?

    Happy New Year, OCedarians! [face_party]

    First of all, my apologies for being so remiss about checking on things in this sock! [face_blush] RL has really done a number on me over the last few months, but things have calmed down now, so I should be back at this whole sock administration thing in a more regular manner.

    So, to get down to business:

    First, for the OC Ask Game: @divapilot, since it’s been (WAAAY) more than ten days since your tag in the above post, may I ask you to please tag someone else? Thanks! (And once again, the list of questions may be found here.)

    More generally, is there interest in keeping this game going? I do have some other OC-related games in mind that we could try if we feel like we’re ready for something a little different.

    Next: what would you all say to a new challenge? If there’s interest, I can put something together within a day or two (barring all catastrophe).

    And finally, if we start a new challenge, do we prefer a running time of eight (8) or ten (10) weeks? (I know the challenges in this thread often have run a lot longer—like, 3 to 4 months—but I’d like to experiment with some shorter times, given that it can be easy to lose motivation in challenges if the running time is too long. And I say that equally about myself!)

    Thank you all, and looking forward to hearing your thoughts! :)

    Okey dokey, I will ask the same question (#7) to @DarthIshtar - Vera, what cheers you up?
    Also I am up for another game or activity.

    Also new challenge please. You choose the timeline, I’m cool either way

    Vera takes joy in the husband you haven’t met yet, but also in treating everyone as worthy of having a normal life.

    Psst, @DarthIshtar ... now it's your turn to tag someone else and ask a question about one of their OCs. Here's the list of questions once again. :)

    Also, the new challenge is in preparation and can be posted later today if people are up for it! :D

    Yes! I am interested in a new challenge! Because I need to write more stories! :D (Maybe 8 weeks for the timeline?)

    As far as the game, I have enjoyed, but I’d be interested in seeing what else you’ve got up your sleeve as well!

    Greetings, OCedarians! Ask, and thou shalt receive... welcome to the first OC Revolution challenge of the new decade!

    Winter 2020 OC Challenge: Search Your Feelings
    (With credit and gratitude to @Raissa Baiard for the idea!)
    [​IMG]

    We’re back to the roulette format for this one: choose a number from 1 to 15 (here in this thread is OK), receive a feeling/emotion (also here in this thread), and write an OC-based story that in some way centers around that feeling/emotion. Note: the prompts in this list are going to be a little more specific and a little more colorful than your basic “happiness,” “sadness,” “anger,” etc., so brace yourselves! :D

    Index:
    1. Pride (Mira_Jade)
    2. Wistfulness (Kit'): Caught (with Kithera)
    3. Elation (Findswoman)
    4. Resignation (brodiew)
    5. Incredulity (SiouxFan)
    6. Sorrow (Anedon)
    7. Outrage (Cowgirl Jedi 1701): Outrage (with Leia Padmé Amidala Kenobi Organa Solo Skywalker)
    8. Ennui (Raissa Baiard)
    9. Desperation (Thumper09)
    10. Remorse (Viridian-Maiden)
    11. Exhaustion (divapilot)
    12. Eagerness (WarmNyota_SweetAyesha): Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship (with Kandori Kenobi and Sorath)
    13. Contentment (Pandora)
    14. Vexation (gizkaspice): The First Order Veterinarian (with Dr. Scarlet Tana)
    15. Ambivalence (TheRynJedi)

    This challenge will run for eight (8) weeks, coming due at 11:59 pm on Monday, March 9. Just one number per writer and one writer per number, please. As always, however, you may turn in your number and take a new one if your prompt isn’t working for you. And, as always, feel free to ask if you have any questions!
