2013 Summer Mini Challenge

Today is the first official day of summer (at least, for those of us in the northern hemisphere), so that means its time once again for my


Do you want to play? See the details below! =)

THE RULES
The rules are, for the most part, simple. This is simply meant to be a fun, muse-boosting challenge to help fill the long summer days ahead.

[+] This challenge is open to all fandoms, and/or original fiction. It doesn't have to be something I'm familiar with in order for you to participate.

[+] Simply choose one of the five prompt tables below, paste it to your journal, and comment on this post with a link to your choice.

[+] You do not have to specify what you're going to write about, simply choose a table. All fandoms, characters, pairings, and original work are welcome. You can choose to write for one fandom, five different fandoms, or mix fanfic and original work - whatever you'd like!

Use this format when you're commenting to claim a table (it'll just keep things neater on my end):




[+] You must write at least 100 words for each prompt. There is no upper limit.

[+] All material posted for this challenge must be new. You can write five separate stories, combine your prompts to write a chaptered fic or serial, or use the prompts as extra boosts for stubborn WIPs.

[+] Please post each fic separately at the venue of your choice (LJ, DW, FF.net, MM.org, AO3, dA, etc - as long as its not registration required) and link each piece in your prompt table. This is already built into the code for your table; simply copy and paste your link on the inside of this html tag: <*a href=" [insert your link here] ">PROMPT<*/a>.

[+] All genres (action/adventure, romance, comedy, darkfic, etc) are welcome.

[+] All ratings (G to NC-17 or K+ to X) are welcome.

[+] Gen, het, slash, femmeslash are welcome.

[+] One of the prompts in your chosen table have you stumped? No problem - simply substitute one of the other prompts from one of the other tables and write for it instead.

[+] Once you've completed your table, comment on the Completed Claims post, with a link to your completed table. The Completed Claims list will be static at the top of my LJ for the duration of the challenge.

[+] Everyone who completes one of the tables will receive a personalized banner for their effort. As a bonus (depending on the volume of response) I will personally leave you feedback on your fics, even if you choose to write for a fandom I'm not familiar with - so please make sure you send link me to your table when you're done!

[+] You absolutely do not have to be on my friends list to participate in this challenge - the more, the merrier, I say! =)

[+] This challenge will run from June 21st, 2013 until September 22nd, 2013.

Please choose from one of the prompt tables below. If one of the prompts stumps you, feel free to substitute another prompt from another table in its stead. You are free to interpret the prompt in any way that you wish.

Damn you! :P
The first two tables immediately made me think of a theme. With silver and amber, there's only one direction this can go for me. (nothing for fandom, though ;) )
Too bad I can't work them into a similarly themed WIP of mine, because that story will be novel-length if I ever manage to continue my research. But the prompts would SO fit into the plot...

The other tables don't call out to me - but hey, last year I managed exactly two tables, so maybe that's a hint? Haha...

Now let's see when I get some time on my hands. Wouldn't want to postpone until the last few days again... XD
Maybe I'll take 2 months to think of a plot and 1 to actually write? ^^

Okay, weird question (and probably too ambitious): Can I do two prompt tables at the same time?

I'm thinking that I would like to do 100 word drabbles for one of the tables and have the other one just be regular drabbles/chapters/whatever I'm working on inspiration. The thing is, though, I don't want to write 5 100 word drabbles all at once, but maybe have them for palate-cleansers after longer writing.

So, can I? :D

Is it allowable to claim a table, and possibly swing back for another if one gets the table finished?

Heeey... So I said I'd only claim my tables if I knew I'd be able to finish, right? Guess who just finished the story? ;)

So my claim is table 1 and 2. Posted it here: http://janey-p.livejournal.com/5386.html

Story will be posted in under an hour, I think. :D
