The Reason Challenge Jul. 5th, 2004 @ 09:06 pm
Okay, I finally attempted May's challenge, and it's all finished now. It doesn't move along with the lyrics as much as May's does, but I met the requirements well enough, and I do have an odd couple.

Please read and review!


Glimpses through windows... Jul. 4th, 2004 @ 10:18 am
Hmm. It would seem the Dark Muse is hanging out at May's :: brushes Raven's away from keayboard ::

I hope this was the right thing to do, as it is my attempt at the "Windows" challenge. If we post it elsewhere, Siver-Cosmic, and we need to edit let me know. Oh and SLIGHT rating alert on this one...it is dark, intense and there is some implied sex in the last one so R perhaps.

The Challenge: "Look Through Any Window"

--HP fanfic
--Write a series of vignettes, or little glimpses into the lives of HP characters
--Each should be no more than a paragraph.
--Can contain any characters, settings, or ships
--Minimum of three
--Theme is "Look Through Any Window" (not necessarily the song), and it should be like you're looking through a window in the HP world and witnessing some quick happening or glimpse

Ok, Muses. I have struggled with this, and every other thing I am writing lately, and I am going to just let it go and post the bloody thing. I apologize in advance, for taking liberties with my own challenge. If pressed it really could meet all the requirements...technically speaking anyway. So here goes...

The Challenge: Write a Fic inspired by Hoobastank's The Reason

The Requirements:
-Fic length: More than 750 :: grins ::

-Fic features unexpected HP (or other Fandom) Pairing: Harry/Hermione (for me this is unexpected, and was more of a challenge)

-Fic must take place in at least two locations : If you question this, comment and I'll respond. I don't want to give too much away in the intro.

-Pairing must be "outed" in the end...that is one or both profess their love before the audience of your choosing : again...pushing the envelope, but in the end they are revealed.

Beautiful Stranger Jun. 30th, 2004 @ 10:07 pm

Ok, so I attempted the Beautiful Stranger challenge, and I'm not entirely pleased with what I came up with. I'm going to try to tackle May's next since I've had a half-formed idea running around my head with that song for a while. Anyway, here's this...I hope you enjoy it!

Another Song Fic challenge...I was very clever and witty when I wrote this the first time, but I lost the whole challenge during spellcheck so you get the condensed version, if I can remember it all. :: grumbles ::

The Challenge: Write a Fic inspired by Hoobastank's The Reason

Read more...Collapse )

The requirements:
-Fic length is 750 words or more.

-Fic features unexpected HP (or other Fandom) Pairing. Draco/Hermione or Harry/Snape are examples. It may be pairings unexpected to the writer, for example I see Harry/Hermione as unexpected, and Lucius/Ginny or Hermione/Snape, unless you are Addison!! Really it may be anyone, just unexpected.

-Fic must take place in at least two locations, say start in Potions, and end in the Great Hall. It may be more than two, but must be at least two.

-Pairing must be "outed" in the end...that is one or both profess their love before the audience of your choosing. Perhaps Filch professes his inspiration to change his wicked ways and his undying love for Pomfrey in the hospital before all the students there..or whatever cleverness you choose.

Speaking of clever, I will try to be more clever next time, and come up with a non-song-fic challenge but I keep hearing this song and seeing HP images in my mind, and wondered what you might come up with. Hopefully it will serve to inspire. I seem to be uninspired of late.

Write on Muses...:: said like Charlie, from Charlie's Angels ::

I apologize for any errors, but since I lost this all once I will just hope for the best and post it! Best ~ May

» Answer to Challenge "in Memory"

Hey everyone,

I'm new to this group. Am in awe of all your work. You guys are a bunch of elites! Which is possibly why I'm hanging my head in embarrassment while I post this reply to the challenge "In memory". It's written from the POV of Pansy Parkinson.

Please tell me what you think!!




» My God, where IS everyone?!
Okay, well this is strange, because there is nobody here at the community, and there hasn't been a soul (except maybe Cosmic) for the past few days. Where is everyone?! Because if there was a memo about just leaving poor Ruby here all alone, that was not very kind. :(

Well, if that ISN'T the case, I've decided to put up a new challenge, just to wake some of you guys up. So here are the requirements:

Challenge Requirements:
*Fanfiction or original work
*Based on the lyrics Beautiful Stranger by Madonna
*1000 words or less
*Other requirements:
-somebody must use this quote from the lyrics: "If I'm smart, then I'll run away. But I'm not, so I guess I'll stay."
-there must be crying at the end
-a character must feel haunted by another character, whether it be by ghost or actual person

Okay, hope some of you take up this challenge! I know I'm going to be working on this one myself, but I think the lyrics are pretty easy to go by, and the challenge requirements aren't that hard. So please, my Realmies, let me rest assured that you haven't all abandoned me!

My friend, another Harry Potter fan, sent me these links to two animated puppet shows that are very cute. Quite funny, really. It doesn't take more than a few minutes to load on dial-up connections, and nothing more than about 5-7 seconds with DSL or anything faster. Trust me, these'll give you a chuckle. :)



Enjoy! :D

Well, after an entire week of thinking this over, absolutely clueless, I was finally hit with an idea to meet the challenge requirements. So here is the result. I must admit, very honestly, that this was REALLY hard. So hard, that it took me three tries to get anything decent. Laura, I hope you know how much stress this gave me. ;)

I would just like to say that I have finally gone and added everyone on this community to my friends list and it would make me really happy if you added me too. You don't have to, but it would make me happy. Have a nice day!
