Description: I am a diehard fan of Ellen Hopkins and I love how she writes in poem form. So that is the challenge here. Write a fanfiction in poem form. Sadly, there are rules to follow.

Rules:
1. It must be longer than a oneshot. Sadly I don't think a oneshot would be appropriate for this challenge. It would be a HUGE poem and I don't think anyone could read it like that.
2. It does not have to rhyme, though it would be cool if you could do that. =]
3. Just for my Zeezy-kins, you may use OCs or Reader-Inserts! =] Isn't that wonderful?!

That is it! =] Now you can use any kind of poem in this challenge. You can use ALL the types if you like. And if you have not read Ellen Hopkins, you MUST. =] She is an amazing author and messes with your heads.

But enough is said. Write!

Description: This challenge is to all you Reader Insert writers out there: For a change of pace, I challenge you to come up with an original character to put into one of your stories instead of making the readers insert themselves. All genres/fandoms welcome. Those who have never written reader inserts are welcome to respond to the challenge, as well, as long as the story has an original character as one of the main characters.

The rules are simple:

There must be an original character with a major part in the story. Good guy, bad guy, love interest, long-lost brother, whatever you want to make them - the sky's the limit! Your character must have a name (at least a first name, last optional) and a physical description must be present somewhere in the story (feel free to spread it out through different descriptive phrases, but I want to be able to picture this person in my mind). Your story must also be at least 1,000 words long. No drabbles.

Ready? .....Go!

Description: OK I know this has happened to me a few times, when you read or hear a particular love quote and a story pops into my head. Now I want to know if you guys (and girls) do this as well.

Now all you have to do is take about ten quotes about love and write a one-shot, dabble, whatever with the love quote somewhere in there.

Rules.
Provide the love quote in the A/N.
The work of writing must either be centered around the quote(meaning it does not state the quote in the story but still upholds the theme) or have the quote in it. (If you like it could be both.)
Use any kind of quote that relates to love, (sad, happy, mixed)
You can use your own quotes!!!
At least ten quotes please. You can have more if you would like but aim for ten to start with.

OK writers I know you can do this. Ready and Type!

Music to me is like my oxygen, the steady beat to my heart; my everything. The following lyrics are from songs that have made their home in my heart and soul; Although I must warn you...a lot--more than half-- of these are kinda angsty..) I was planning on having 65 lyrics in this challenge..I managed to gather 50 lyrics for this challenge, there are much more though...but I kinda got lazy towards the end..so...if you'd like, you can choose the five additional lyrics you'd like in your response.

The only requests I have for this challenge are that they;
1)Be reader insert.
2)Must be above at least 100 words.
Asides from that, they can be in any specific order you wish.

One more thing, if you do reply to this challenge, please click the red 'Respond to the challenge!' link so that I can be aware of your drabbles/ficlets.

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.

I've learned that no matter how much I care some people just don't care back.

I've learned that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned that it's not what you have in your life, but whom you have in your life that counts.

I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I've learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I've learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I've learned that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I've learned that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And, just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

I’ve learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief.

I’ve learned that no matter how you try to protect your children, they will eventually get hurt, and you will hurt in the process.

I've learned that you should never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be if they believed it.

I've learned that heroes are people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I’ve learned that you can keep going long after you can’t.

Description: Oh how I love to listen to your songs.

So, this challenge is dedicated to the radio, an amazing little device that connected the world for years before the television was ever invented.

The challenge is simple: switch to your favorite radio station(s) and write to whatever song comes on. You can skip a few songs if you have no ideas for the ones that were playing, but don't skip too many!
There is no time limit, nor is there a limit to what to write. Drabbles, or a oneshot? Angst or fluff? You choose!

You can write as many responses as you would like to this challenge, but I'd personally start off with around fifteen.

(Bonus!)
And you know those annoying commercials that all radio stations have? How do you think your lovey bishies would respond to them?

Good luck darlings!

Description: Pick any anime, gaming, book/novel, movie/TV, cartoon/comic character you'd like the reader to be paired with. Write 5 stories, each with different pairings with the reader, with a minimum of 400 words to no limit, a little below the minimum is fine. Base your stories on these lyrics, choose any five out of the ten that are given.

No restrictions - lemon/lime, fluff, gore, is fine, y'know, whatever comes into your head. Just have fun. :D And I guess if you know the song, and absolutely love it, note it in your author's note. I'd very much like to know.

o1. So young,
full of running,
all the way to the edge of desire.
Steady my breathing,
silently screaming,
'I have to have you now'.
Love is really nothing -
but a dream that keeps waking me.
For all of my trying,
we still end up dying,
how can it be?


o2. The song's in my head again,
of things that I never said.
It's all in the things we do
This is the melody we know.
And your silence sings,
I can hear it.
Every day that comes;
every year gone by,
writes the ballad of you and I.


o3. I am thinking it's a sign
that the freckles in our eyes
are mirror images, and
when we kiss,
they're perfectly aligned.
And I, have to speculate,
that God himself did make us
into corresponding shapes
like puzzle pieces from the clay.


o4. The situations are irrelevant now.
She loves the way that I tease.
I love the way that she breathes.
I touched her 'ooh',
She touched my 'aaah',
It was the craziest thing.
A certain girl, she took my hand
and ran it up her thigh.
She licked her lips and
pulled my hair,
I fall in love for a night.


o5. Now they are starting to love you more;
A gallery of your beauty, no charge at the door.
Now you wait,
like the drug,
like the change in the pain -
it goes on for so long. And
Oh, how it hurts in the worst way,
now that you're gone.
It's so wrong.


o6. So let me get this straight -
say now, you loved me all along.
What made you hesitate
to tell me with words, what you
really feel?
Now we both have separate lives and lovers.
Insignificantly enough,
we both have significant others.
We are who we were when,
could have been more, but at least
you're still my day late friend.


o7. And I'd give up forever to touch you,
'cause I know that you feel the same now.
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be,
and I don't wanna go home right now.
And I don't want the world to see me,
'cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.


o8. In a few weeks,
I will get time,
to realise it's right before my eyes,
and I can take it if it's what I want to do,
and I can taste it -
it's my sweet beginning.
And I can tell just what you want -
You don't want to be alone.
You don't want to be alone.
And I can't say it's what you know,
But you've known it the whole time.
Yeah, you've known it the whole time.


o9. I'm like a rookie paramedic to a siren,
praying for an accident.
Nobody will let me walk, no,
they won't let me roll until I've got no back up
until they're out of control.
This emergency brought you to me.
I'll be your doctor, I'll be your cure
I'll be your medicine and more.
Yeah, you can rest assure
I'm your doctor, I'm your cure
I'll be your cure.


1o. Scar tissue that I wish you saw.
Sarcastic Mister Know-It-All
Close your eyes and I'll kiss you, 'cause
with the birds I'll share this lonely view.
Push me up against the wall,
Young Kentucky girl in a push-up bra.
Blood loss in a bathroom stall,
Southern girl with a scarlet drawl.
Fallin' all over myself
To lick your heart and taste your health.
Autumn's sweet - we call it fall ,
I'll make it to the moon if I have to crawl.

All I ask is that you take some of those awkward moments, and make a drabble series, make it as long as you want. Turn it into a oneshot for all I care, I just want to see reader inserts that include that smiling gentleman affectionately referred to as 'Bob'.

Description: This challenge is set to tell a story or scene of the chosen song through description. The goal is to show the audience what is happening without directly describing the characters themselves, giving them an identity, or telling the audience what is happening. It's to provide the practice of showing, not telling, and the songs are just to give you the story or scene that you need to describe.

Which Songs to Choose:
You can choose one of the four choice list, or you can do more than one. If you do decide to do more than one of these lists, and the same song pops up, you don't have to write a separate piece for the same song. "Songs" does not include audiobooks, audio-poetry, poetry, or stand-up comedy even if it is a song. If you don't have a song for the specific letter, then leave the space open until you do find a song, or you don't have to do it.

A. The first song in each letter of the alphabet.
B. A song of your choosing in each letter of the alphabet.
C. Put your MP3 on shuffle, and write down the first song starting with "A". As soon as you've written the song for "A" down, keep pushing next until you see a song starting with the letter "B", and keep going until you reach "Z".
D The list to your Top 25 Most Played.

Rules:
1. Obviously, proper spelling and grammar is a must.
2. For the songs, no audiobooks, audio-poetry, poetry, or stand-up comedy even if it is a song.
3. You can put in a couple lines from the song in, but unless it is weaved in to actually take part in the description, it won't count in the wordcount. For example, the lines can take place in the thoughts and that would count. If you just stick in a verse like a song-fic, which I highly discourage but wont disallow in this challenge,it won't count.
4. I don't mind any sexual orientation, so any homosexualism, pansexualism, asexualism, etc. is allowed; however if the song is genderspecific, please keep to the gender. For example, "I Kissed a Girl" by Katy Perry is obviously about two women who kissed, but you can take it to another angle, like the boyfriend who saw his girlfriend kiss another girl. Or, if the song is about a serial killer, the serial killer will have specific preferences.
5. No second person perspective! Only third or first.
6. The vignette has to at least be 100 words, but no more than 200.
7. Do not give the characters an identity through nameing, looks, style, or anything that could be recognizable through visual description.
8. Thoughts and inner-monologues are fine, but no extensive dialogue. Small pieces of dialogue are fine, just not more than one short sentence at a time. You're at a short word limit, so don't waste it on dialogue, especially since the point of this challenge is description.

Suggestions:
1. Putting the song and band/singer in the author notes, or putting the title of the song as the title of the vignette.
2. Also in the author notes, write what kind of feeling, or setting you were going for, and see if others agree if they felt that way.
3. If the vignette is part of another series (fanfiction) please state from what in the summary. Since the characters' identity will be for the most part hidden, some of the audience may not be able to tell which character you are telling the story or scene from.

Description: Fairy tales and love stories almost always end with '...and they lived happily ever after.' but does everything always end happily? What happens when one of the lovers die? I am challenging you to take a story or movie or make an original or fanfic of an actually ending scene. Whether it be someone depressed and suicide. Or maybe murder. I want you to be as creative as you want. I would like to see where your imagination takes you. I'll even be putting one up of my own if you would like to get some inspiration. EVERYTHING GOES, yes, everything goes.

Description: Tropers and non-tropers alike, this is my challenge to you.
http://www.tvtropes.org
Click the "Random trope" button.
First thing you get that's an actual trope page(rather than for a work, such as a book or TV series), you write a story based around.

Alternately, you can use either of these lists: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UniversalTropes or http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OmnipresentTropes

I'm really just looking for some trope-related stuff here, so if you have another related idea feel free to do that.

Anything goes. Long, short, whatever fandom, any rating, any character. Just go crazy.
