Gundam Wing Back-to-School Smutathon. Stories must be school or university themed in some way. Due Nov 15.
This is one of those where you get a request from someone else, so I can't really share what my assignment was. But I think I'll enjoy it. I remember that I asked for fic about the school play, but I can't quite recall the pairings I listed. 13x6x13 and/or 2x5x2, I'm pretty sure, and maybe 1x2x1 as well.
Harry/Ron FQF. Due Nov 1.
I thought I'd go look over the challenges on offer. And then I saw this one: Harry, Ron, and some tea. That was completely irresistable! The only problem is that I might not be able to stop at one story with that premise. (That and Ron is straight. Hmm.)
That's the kind of challenge that I like -- more like a flavouring. Something to get your mind working, not an elaborate dictated plot.
I also really love pairing challenges and I haven't seen any of those float by for a long, long time. I enjoy taking two near-random characters and digging down into what might draw them together. Maybe that's why I spent a lot of time writing weird pairings in the past. (Do I still do that? I think I've lost perspective on what constitutes a weird pairing.)
If you like challenges, what kind works best for you?
