I have several ideas for challenges ready to go, but if you have any suggestions for one, please post it here. You'll get credit for the idea when it's used. :)

a preseries fic.

Dean and Sam start a new school, and on the first day a student brings in a gun.

Its a very sensitive topic, but it would be good to see how dean and sam deal with something thats not supernatural, and how john copes whn hefinds out that his boys are hostage

I have a pretty, pretty pleeeeeaaaaaaassssseeeee request.

In 500 words or less, write how you want or picture the show ending, like THE END. Of course, write it as prose, poem or script form, not essay.

And I'm probably opening the door to a lot of depressing fic, because I know a lot of people think it will end in death. Sniff. And just for this one, could we use something we might have posted before, because I have already written the only ending I want for the show as a part of another fic, but I've been wanting to tweak it and bring back closer to canon for a long time. AND, it's a happy ending, can't beat that. LOL.

Anyway, can we pleeeeaaaaaasssssseeeee do this one?

Oh, and I think we should definitely post the best ones on the index page somewhere so Kripke and Co can read 'em when they pop in. LOL.

Thx,

HT

Ever since i posted my drabble in the first challenge, i've been writing drabble nonstop (never used too now I cant stop! lol)

Anyways i've written quite a few about how John feels about hunting and how Mary's death affected him. And I think that would be a great topic. Of course, i'll have to write yet another drabble if/when it does appear as a topic, but that's okay. I can write plenty of these :lol:

:evil I just came up with this idea and someone has probably done it already but here goes: Write a multichapter fic about dean forgetting its the anniversary of Jessica's death and he gets angry at sam for being down.
1.Include lots of sammy angst (Maybe some crying, who knows)
2.Write from both POVs.
3.Inject sam's POV with memories from back at standford with jessica
4.End with deans apology and comforting of sam
5.If the timing is right add a hug :D

Well i hope someone will write this fic even if it isnt a part of the official challenge thanks for reading!!

We could do prompts like:

Aftershock
Ambidextrous
Apple Pie
Ambiguous,

LOL, could go on, but yeah, write drabbles around prompts. Although, we really need to keep the drabbles, drabbles. When we set a word count, we need to stick to it, or anything goes... K, I'm in a bad mood, but yeah, I still agree with myself. LOL.

I agree ^^^^^^ The object of a challenge is to stick to the challenge. If anyone feels they want to write something else they have every right to, but they should post it someplace else if it doesn't follow the challenge. I don't mean to be hard on anyone, but it is tough to sort out those who followed the rules and those who didn't.

The challenges don't all have to be drabbles, either, though they are the quickest to write. I like the idea of how we would end Supernatural, but don't know about that format. It would be nicer to read as a story - maybe a short story as to how you would end it?

Just my musings . . . Ignore me if you like! ;)

I agree, SFK, the challenge about the end of the series should be a story. I was just suggesting we limit the word count, so it won't be too much to read, or no one will get through them all. Hmm, perhaps I should reword that. Oh wait! I just did, LOL.

How long do you think?

And thanks for agreeing with me, I was afraid to say that, because I know how hard it is to limit word count. But if you find it is too hard to write a short drabble, it's always possible to wait for another challenge with more word allowance. IMHO.

I agree with both of you. I think the ending to Supernatural would be a good prompt! although i dont think I would participate in it. Because, lol, i dont want to even imagine the ending of Supernatural. I also agree with following the word count. It's hard for those to follow the rules who wrote short drabbles to compete with those who wrote 300-500 word drabbles that allow more detail and fluffiness that makes their story better. So yeahhh, i agree with that. If you cant work out the word count, wait for another challenge :)

Okay, I'm going to weigh in real quick on the length of the challenge stories.
I'm much more likely to participate in a challenge story if it's short.
If I'm writing something lengthy, it's usually my idea, not sparked by
an outside influence and it can take months (if not longer)
for me to research, plot and actually write it. So, if you're doing a
lengthy challenge, please set a semi-reasonable deadline to go
with it.
Plus, it takes awhile to read through several long stories, as someone
else mentioned.
Challenges can certainly be much longer than drabbles, maybe the longer
ones should be limited by scenes instead of word count?
And one scene that I'm always willing to read is the flashback where
Sam leaves for college, focussing on the fight/discussion between
Sam and John. I'm really hoping that we get the definitive version of this
as a flashback in the series (hey, a girl can dream, right?)

Holy cow...

Even if this doesn't turn into a challenge, I would love to read one like this.

Hell I would love to write one like this haha.

If I ever stop trying to write 3 fics at once, and my mused decides to take this one on, mind if I use the idea SexiBitet (while crediting you of course lol)?

:D

I think challenges based on the titles/lyrics of classic rock songs would be fun. I've seen this in other fandoms but I think it would be particularly fitting here for obvious reasons.

But I'm probably biased because I tend to start with classic rock lyrics anyway. Heh.
