    Does the story have to be set in the GFFA as long as it uses GFFA characters? My idea involves the Solo family + Luke on Earth at Christmas time. Obviously not realistic because of the whole "long time ago" and "far, far away" bits, but then again, not much about this story is very realistic. :p

    Okay, "Home for the Holidays" has been finished. (Nine posts! Whoo!)

    However, I've been struck with a plot bunny that won't die, so you may end up seeing another entry from me on another board...

    Lex and I seem to be caught in some strange time warp or alternative universe- why is he writing in the Beyond the Saga boards, and I wrote in the Saga boards?

    :eek:

    Very, very, very strange....

    must be partaking in way too much eggnog or eating too much brandied fruitcake ;)

    :p

    I think you're right, PLJ - this has become some sort of Seinfeldian "Bizarro World" hasn't it? :p


    Next challenge I'll have to write Before the Saga and really mess with everyone's mind. [face_laugh]

    Yup. I had to go searching for the answer, but Renata said, "Yes, multiple entries are allowed as long as they're finished by December 31st."

    Okay, the first post of my second entry is up...

    It's another Kameer piece. :) I just love the little guys. This one's on the Saga Board, though (it takes place roughly 16 years prior to ANH, rather than 16 years prior to TPM), and it takes place at Midwinter's Night, rather than Svazdipir.

    Wow, we're almost up to twenty! Bear in mind, judging WON'T be done by Jan 1! ;) And competition will be stiff, if what's been posted so far is any indication. There's some good stuff out there; this one really seems to have inspired you guys.

    Okay, Renata, I'm really tempted to do something, if I can pull it off (the fact that I'm about half-done with my second entry is promising to that end)...

    Would it be acceptable to post a third entry, say, three posts all on the 31st (done before midnight, of course), as a sort of trilogy with my two previous entries?

    Sounds like you've got the Lucas/Jackson disease! ;)

    Like I said, multiple entries are okay, if you can meet all the requirements.

    Good grief! You are a writing MACHINE! :eek:

    Sorry Ren! :(

    I just posted my first entry to [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=14323415&replies=0]More than a Velleity[/link].

    I wanted to wait until I finished it before I started posting, but I was too excited about it not to. :D

    sheesh. If I make it it may well be three posts on the 31st. I'm one of those people who have to have the whole thing written before they start posting. Although, this might be a good way to force myself out of my comfort zone as it were...

    Dagnabit. I've just had another idea for what to do for this challenge. See that's part of the problem for me. Fixing on one to finish.

    I could probably do at least 5 at this point as vignettes or quasi-vignettes but I don't really want to run them all together in some sort of telling stories supporting story as that has already been mentioned more than once. Yet deciding which fragments to nurture in my limited time.... Argh!

    Heh, funny (to my mind) idea: naming five OC's Candles, Holiday, Reunion, Gifts and Light. They're all there! :p

    Light... didn't I answer this already? I thought I'd answered this already... light is light. Interpretation is up to you! :) (Gandalf, you are evil! [face_laugh] )

    I want to add, it's very helpful to me to see a post here when the stories are completed. Please keep it up! Thanks!

    Okay! Mine's completed.

    All three parts are posted, along with an additional post (alternate ending) that my readers strong-armed me into writing. :p

    Thanks! I'm trying to read all of the entries myself but I'm way behind. :(

    Happy holidays, everyone. :D
