    [hl=indigo]The Ridiculously-Specific Challenge (v2.0) [/hl]

    Welcome back, dear ones! Many of you, I suspect, participated in the original [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Fan_Fiction_Resource/b10304/20894941/p1]RSC[/link], which was posted some time back in July or August. If not, never fear?doesn?t matter in the least, and we don?t love you any less. :p

    [blockquote]Give me some angst. Yes, that?s right: angst. And I don?t mean that trivial ?oh, boo-hoo, that cute girl in science class doesn?t know I?m alive? sort of angst that teens are prone to. I want a colossal, tear-jerker tissue-soaker tragedy of a fic. Make my cynical writer?s heart ache![/blockquote]

    [hl=silver][blockquote]The Second Sadistic List (hearts, oqi!)[/hl]

    -Must involve a bassinette.
    -Must be at least 400 words. (That's not hard, is it?)
    -Must include (in the first paragraph) an onomatopoeia (a.k.a. sound word, such as beep).
    -Must involve an abandoned cloak.
    -Must include the words astray, myriad, disdainful, frailty, unwavering, motif, misstep, stifling, frigid, dejection, misplaced, moniker, satchel, kiss, teachings, methodical, loyalty, travesty, unreasonable, melody and rime. (Note: these are base words. Feel free to use other forms. I.e. motifs, unreasonably, etc.)
    -Must be narrated, at least partially, in first person.
    -Must involve a character receiving a correspondence.
    -One of the character?s rationalizations must draw basis from a painful memory
    -Must include some form of a flashback.
    -Must include the phrase "Here we go again".
    -Must use the phrase ripping at the seams.
    -Must include a ?blast from the past?. (Not the phrase, but something that fits the description.)
    -Must have a scene that takes place at night.
    -Somebody?s Padawan must be mentioned?as well as a Padawan braid.
    -Something woven must appear in the story. (A handmade blanket, shirt, etc.)
    -Must include a character getting lost.
    -Must involve at least one OC (even if they only play a minor role).

    [hl=skyblue]Extra Fluff-Slayer-Loves-You Point-Scorers[/hl]
    -Include Garen, Bant, or Xanatos (or all three!)
    -Include mention of swimming.
    -Include mention of a near-death experience.
    -Mention a story. Any story. Or even a poem, if you want. I'm not picky at all! O:)
    -Make YOURSELF appear in the story--in passing. (No. Don't turn this into a Mary Sue fic, centered solely around your visitation to the--NO! Don't! If you do, I'll come home, set myself on fire, and jump out a window. Be subtle here, folks. Clever.) [/blockquote]


    All right now. Don't just wander off; now that you've taken the time to read these obnoxious guidelines, you owe it to yourself to post something.

    Even if it's just a "You're insane, woman!" sort of statement. I enjoy those.

    (Forgive the colors. I got color-happy.)

    *pokes head in. shakes it in disbelief. copies and pastes guidelines into a word doc along with the first challenge*

    Someday, someday I swear by all that is holy I shall post responses to both of these challenges!

    Aghhh! Slow down! I'm not done with the first one :p

    You're insane, Woman!

    I will now dutifully begin planning yet another entry I don't really have time for (and do it with a smile on my face)...

    *glares at Fluff-Slayer* Are you trying to kill me?
    I'm really not sure why I clicked on the thread knowing that I'm going to end up writing this because I can't turn down a good challenge. *sigh* Oh well I guess I'd have to learn how to write angst sooner or later.

    Well, I've got a plot bunny... and i think I could do it... however, due to my lacking knowledge of the EU (and especially Anakin Solo and his death), I can't write it. Anyone have any snyopsis of this series?

    Jen, you have a good soul. [face_laugh] I'm sure you can do it.

    You've learned well, Exeter. Just grin and bear it all happy-like. (Though I must wonder if that's a good attitude while going about writing "an angstie to end all angsties".

    Iryla- I'll tell you why you did it--because deep down, you love my crazy, obnoxious challenges and their crazy, obnoxious guidelines. (Why would I want to kill you? This world needs as many writers as it can get!)

    Layren- Are you mocking me, lady? o_O Look, I'm serious; bunnies like socks! They really do! (It's the same sort of concept of muses liking cheese. No one can explain it, but it's true.)

    kotorchick- Can't help you there...though I'm not entirely sure I understand what you're asking.

    Since I wrote something angsty for the last one, can I make something funny for this one? :p

    Watch me do both at once. I bet you I can, too. :D

    JC- [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    Oqi- I had a feeling you'd say something like that. [face_laugh] Whee!

    DWH- Now, now, Commander, don't cheat! [face_shame_on_you] (Anyway, I agree: you can definately handle both. You seem to have a weird talent for such things.)







    Some of you are making this replying to my ridiculous challenges a habit. [:D] I'm certainly not complaining. Good luck, everybody!

    Hee. I can't wait! Angst!!!

    To modify my question: does anyone have a synopsis of the NJO series, specifically the one where Anakin Solo dies?

    Grr, how do you people find the time to get it done so soon?
    Stupid school's messing my writing up so it's going to take longer for me to get mine up, maybe this weekend, but it'll be there, don't worry. ^_^

    Actually, I don't have the time. I've been goofing off for the past three weeks and the poodoo is about to hit the fan in oqi-dom. I've got a chapter of a manuscript due on 30 Sept and I'm being yelled at by people. Also stupid school doesn't start for me until next week; which means on Monday night I have to write lectures on the history of civilization and WWI or maybe just make up a bunch of stuff and hope none of my students read their textbooks. Hmmmm...

    I totally sympathize with you on the time thing. Perhaps you should angst about it. ;)

    Commander and oqi both did fantastically! *Adds them to the hereby-un-ivisified List*

    :_| I needed a good angst. And what did I get? Two of them!
