Description: ...and family gatherings can only mean embarrassing stories, fighting words, and hidden hostility.

The challenge: write about these awkward family gatherings (preferably Christmas gatherings) and include a phrase or a person that you can easily find in the kind of situation, for example a relative that always gets drunk and talks about embarrassing things, or "Why aren't you married yet?". You can also write about people coming to dinner late or unequal treatment of children via gift-giving.

What I want to see is the reaction of the characters when he/she is trapped in that sort of awkward situation. Will they confront it, ignore it, or what? It's all up to you, awesome authors! :D

It can be anime/manga/TV shows/anything. I just put anime/manga in the categories because that's what I prefer. There is also no rules whatsoever.

P.S. And I'll be so happy if you write about "So you're the new boyfriend. She finally convinced someone to date her!" and also epic sarcastic responses to bad-mouthers ^^

Description: Basically, we all know that there's seven days in a week, right? It can vary from being a school day to work day or even to vacation time.

Here's The Story:
One day, (Y/N) happens to get a letter in her mailbox that morning (and if you don't have a mailbox, choose another alternative). (Y/N), curious to have gave her the letter for it had no name other than her's, opened it to peek at the contents. In there was a single sheet of paper and there, scribbled neatly, it said:
"...Tired of waiting for the guy to notice? Tired of leading the single life? Tired of the unsuccessful chase? Here's how to get the guy of your dreams. ~Anonymous."
(Y/N) was curious and because of her curiosity, she was willing to give this a try. If it would finally get 'him' to notice, she would be willing to do it. (Y/N) continued to read.
"If you're willing to do it, flip to the back."
She did as told.
"Here's how to do it..."

Day 1 - Make Him Notice
Day 2 - Dress For The Occasion
Day 3 - Play To His Interests
Day 4 - The Power Of Jealousy
Day 5 - Don't Forget To Smile
Day 6 - Invite Him To Hang Out
Day 7 - Be Yourself

Rules/Other Stuff:
Rules are, have fun and be creative and don't forget to tell me about you accepting the challenge. You can mix up the steps all you want except for the last one. I'm not exactly a yuri or yaoi lover, but hey, I won't stop ya if you want to do it. However, the story goes, it's your choice. This challenge is mainly for reader inserts only.

Instant Loves:
If you do a reader insert with Tsuna, Hibari, Flan, Bel, or Giotto from Katekyoushi Hitman Reborn, you have my love. If you do Roxas or Sora from Kingdom Hearts, you have my love as well. Otherwise, pairings are unlimited and can be chosen from any anime, manga, etc. I'm not picky, but make sure to enjoy writing it.

Description: So something on my Tumblr dash piqued my interest!
Click click! ⇨ Periodic Table of Storytelling

1. A collection of one-shots.
2. For one story, choose one 'element' that you'll write about. Your story could be a combination of other elements, but the element you chose must be the main highlight of the story.
3. Any order. Your first story doesn't have to be the element that's in the spot of Hydrogen in the periodic table of elements.
4. Any fandom! Because I want to share this cute thing to everyone! Oh, you may write an original story too!
5. Any rating, any genre. As long as it can still highlight the element you chose.
6. For each chapter title, kindly add the symbol (the shorter name) of the element of the story. (E.g.: Mpb; School Prefect) ... Mpb is "Manipulative Bastard" in the periodic table and I thought of Hibari from Katekyo Hitman Reborn! first so that's the example.
7. Lastly, indicate on your summary that your story is a response to my challenge.

I'll do this one too, on summer. Enjoy~

Description: Suddenly becoming a father, a single one at that was the absolutely last thing on his 'to do list', but fate clearly had other ideas. He's about to find out if he is in fact 'man enough' to handle every crazy, frustrating and surprisingly scary thing that comes with raising a child to adulthood alone.


Okay, so this challenge needs some explaining. Basically you just need to pick a guy from any anime, manga, book, TV Show, games ect. that probably would not make the best father and unexpectedly plop a child who's age can range anywhere from a newborn to a toddler, no older or younger though, into his custody one way or another. Also, the child must biologically be his.

[1] You must show in the summary that you have accepted my challenge, since I'd love to read what you've written.

[2] It can be any length, as long as it's over one hundred words.

[3] You can use any fandom you like or no fandom at all.

[4] The guy you pick must be a single father and the mother cannot be in the picture for whatever reason you'd like to come up with.

[5] You do not have to use the example guys as they are just there for reference as to what type of guy I want to see being used for this challenge.

Example Guys:

1. Xanxus (Katekyou Hitman Reborn!)

2. Levi (Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan)

3. Train Heartnet (Black Cat)

4. Dante (Devil May Cry)

Description: Here's the deal people. I love Sasuke Uchiha ALOT,as do many of you. But in this site, I rarely see SasukeXreadeer stories, especially those that are based in the modern world. And I'm no writer myself or I could have written plenty for you all.

Hence, I'm challenging all of you to write SasukeXreader stories based on the modern world. I really am serious about this, so how about you all start cracking? I mean, there are many ways to fall in love with someone, ways to love someone, methods to make love to the guy you love so and since we all love this Uchiha with all our do justice to him then, eh?

There are no basic rules and no deadlines, let your imagination run wild, but keep these in mind:
1. The story must be modern or at least in the real world. You can base the story in different eras or time periods as long as THEY ARE FROM OUR WORLD, e.g Modern Day, 1950's, World War Two anything you prefer.
2. Try going outside the box. I mean, you don't necessarily have to write high school love stories. Romances can take place in the office, in secret, arranged marriage and any genre like thriller and tragedy as long as Sasuke and the reader are the primary characters.
3. (optional)Please use my polyvore sets for these stories. here's the link

so Good luck!!!

I read a lot, but I always find that it's hard to find a good book/story.

This is your challenge:

To write a good story that I will enjoy reading. It can be any fandom of your choice, or it can be an original piece. Heck, it can even be nonfiction! (Fiction is still preferable, though.)

There is no deadline.

As long as it's good, post it here. I'll eat it up and be forever grateful. :)

Description: The way members are punished in sports manga and anime always really confused me.

In most sports anime and manga, punishments usually are an increase in their training menu.
But, that sort of thing always seems set for a later date, not an immediate punishment. I mean, training menues aren't something usually seen in school settings in America outside college and in proffessional teams. It's probably a cultural thing, and probably better for building the players body to have an increase every so often in their traning, even if for a day, and the later date would allow them to think over their actions. But, to increase the entire menu for something that seems pretty simple seemed kinda extreme to me. And the lack of immediate punishment just really confused me, I'm too used to seeing people getting yelled at to immediately drop whatever they're doing and do the punishment exercise.

The only sports anime I've seen implament immediate punishment is Prince of Tennis, with running laps. If there are anymore, then I haven't read/seen them. (Kagami from Kuroko no Basuke's punishment to sit out of practice/walk on his hands was more for his own health and safety than an actual punishment.)

So, in that case, this is my challenge;

Take a sports anime/manga, any one will do, and have a character do something to get in trouble. Enough to garner punishment, but not enough that it would warrent an increase in their training menu.

Then have someone, the reader, an oc, or a canon character, bring up the idea of an immediate punishment ("I heard the Americans do it.")

How the characters react is up to you. They can agree, disagree, whatever! It might even become a regular thing!


Some little rule things;

-Doesn't have to have pairings! You can if you want to, it sounds like another challenge all together though, with what I'm asking. XD
-Any sports manga/anime at all is fine! Even ones not listed in the archives (where is my Haikyuu!! and Daiya no Ace *weeps*)
-Can be just a one-shot or a drabble series or even a progressive story! Anything's fine.
-No deadline, just have fun with it!

Now, how 'bout a little list of punishment exercises

-Running laps
-Suicide sprints
-A sport specific punishment (this one might be hard)

Description: Hi guys! I haven't noticed any possessive kakashi stories. Don't you think it's possible that after he's found someone he'd be unwilling to let them go? Let's make this AU universe with obito and rin still alive. Kakashi is deeply in love with their sixteen year old daughter. You can make her a reader insert or create an original character to cover her.

Try to keep kakashi as true to character as you can please? I'd think he'd be extremely passive in his advances and yet underhanded at the same time, having her dog sit at his house etc etc. I'd also like for her to be in itachi's age group because nothing escapes his notice. I'd like to leave some leeway for creativity but if you need any further help with characterization or plot feel free to send me a message!

Description: Something I have noticed about reader inserts is that the reader is almost always CIS heterosexual (or bisexual). That’s fine and dandy, as I’m sure plenty of actual readers are—but what about opening up the possibility to readers that aren’t and might like to see something closer to a representation of themselves?

What I would like to see is a fan fiction where the READER (not the canon character, not an OC) is non-CIS, non-heteroromantic, non-heterosexual, a combination…or even all at the same time. It’s something I’ve been trying to expand upon in my own writing (though I need to do more), and I’d like to see other people try their hand at doing so as well.


1. It is the reader that must be the non-majority.

2. You may do what you need to do with whatever romantic interest(s) you have, but if they are a canon character from something, do try to keep them in character (unless you’re one of those AU writers that don’t care about characterization).

3. Do your research. Be respectful.

4. Keep in mind that popular media portrayals aren’t necessarily correct. For instance, binding your chest with ace bandages is severely unhealthy. Your reader character might not know that, but it might be nice if you gave your readers a head’s up in an author’s note when things like that come up.

6. Remember that there is a difference between a story where a character being (for example) bigender is the entire point, and one where the character just is. I’m asking for the latter, but I won’t stop you from writing the former.

7. If you do the latter, make sure the fact that they are (another example) asexual comes up. Obviously, the reader character will have other interests, problems, and thoughts than their sexuality, but if they never discuss it and waltz away happily with your favorite boy from SnK, that’s not actually completing the challenge.

8. You don’t have to go the extreme route of any choice you make. If your reader character is a CIS bisexual girl and she ends up with CIS heterosexual boy from Once Upon A Time, that’s fine, so long as you actually wrote her as bisexual.

9. Remember that sexuality and romanticism can be entirely different!

10. This challenge is open to any length you’d like: drabble collections, one shots, and novel length stories are all applicable.

11. This challenge is open to any sort of story, fan fiction or original or crossover or whatever, so long as it is written in the second person point of view.

That’s it for now. If you feel that I have said or requested anything rude, insensitive, or otherwise ignorant, do feel free to message me so I can correct my mistakes. (:

Description: A trope defined as “a story in which one small change has a ripple effect, resulting in massive changes.”

We’ve all seen them lurking in the dark corners of our favorite websites: the story of how the OC from the "real world" gets somehow trapped in the world of their favorite television show, manga, or game. Some of us may have even been guilty of writing one ourselves in our younger days. Ahem.

Normally what happens is that this OC/self-insert does little more than “mysteriously” know what’s going to happen. They develop or are shown to have abilities that help them to excel in their new world. They have parents that were abusive or uncaring so there’s no reason to go home. The character they love the most falls in love with them. If said character dies in-universe, the insert saves them or takes them back to the real world. Nothing changes outside of sarcastic or seemingly psychic commentary, and a dash of romance.

This is not what I want to see for this challenge.

You are to insert something from the “real” world into the universe of your chosen fandom. That something can be an OC, a self-insert, or a reader. Since that something is now in the universe, things are going to be different. Your “something” is the “nail” of this alternate universe of your chosen fandom.

You are, of course, allowed to follow what TV Tropes calls “The Stations of Canon.” Example: You want to insert something into KHR!. The usual plot important points such as Kokuyo Land, the Ring Trails, and the Future Arc can all be involved. However, the way these points unfold and end must be obviously different from what happened in the series. Perhaps your insert's presence means that Gokudera never becomes Tsuna's friend. Maybe your insert being there means Xanxus wins the Sky Ring instead. Something like that.

Basically, don’t just write the exact story with your insert something making snarky commentary and preventing all the bad stuff from happening. If the insert something stops one bad thing from happening, then some other unexpected bad thing would crop up as a result of preventing the other one. Make sure there are ripples that happen because of the insert something being there.

Important Considerations

1. Home

Does the reader want to get home? Will they and how?

2. Powers or Abilities

Make sure the reader has a reason to have powers or abilities similar to the main cast, or that they learn them at a reasonable rate. The real world does not have flames so the insert shouldn’t have that, but they could reasonably have been taught archery or some sort of weapon or martial art.

3. The New Universe

Is the new universe safe or threatening? If you thrust your insert into Naruto, most real world people aren’t going to be able to deal cheerfully with ninjas and death all around them right away, whether they are a fan of the series or not. Make sure the reactions are believable for whatever insert you fabricate.

4. How Much They Know

Is your insert up to date on One Piece or did they give up after the Alabasta Arc? Have they read spoilers for upcoming Marvel movies or just seen a few of the Phase 1 movies? Keep in mind what your reader knows, and therefore what they know to prevent and if they can.

5. Death—or Not

If your insert saves Sirius Black from death in a Harry Potter fan fiction, things are going to play out differently than they did in the series proper. The same is true for if the insert prevents Demyx from “fading” in Kingdom Hearts II. Don’t be tempted to tell the exact same story with two extra characters hanging about.


1. Word count must be 500+
2. Any sort of sexuality for any romances (including the insert or not) is fine.
3. Make sure this is a fan fiction. Having your fictional “real world” insert go into a fictional “fictional world” is not really in the spirit of the challenge.
4. Any fandom is fine for your fictional universe.
5. Don’t make your character have belonged to this fictional universe all along.

Essentially, what I’m looking for is a realistic, reasonably well-written version of an old, cringe-worthy classic sort of fan fic. Make the insert—whatever it is, so long as it’s a real world thing sent into a fictional world—believable. Obviously the part where they get to this fictional world won’t be so realistic, though, so go wild for that bit. Try to have fun!

As always, please feel free to e-mail me for clarification on anything here. I feel that I might not have made myself as plain as I could have, and I’d hate for confusion to prevent anyone from trying their hand at this.

Description: It’s a problem that plagues many fans these days: the creation of children and families for favorite pairings, whether they be involving an OC or two canon characters. In some places, these sorts of stories can become huge. In other places…not so much. Or maybe you’re just like me and you have a dozen Avengers children and nothing to do with them because you can’t market OC fic.

How can we combine two great tastes that taste great together? Add a reader insert into your cast of new characters!

How To

• Take your favorite series (ex. Harry Potter, Ouran High School Host Club, The Hobbit, etc.)
• Make children for the cast
• Stick in a reader insert
• Write the story


• If your chosen fandom already has canon children (like Harry Potter), you can use those, or you can make your own, or even add new ones to the ones already shown
• The parents can either be both canon characters (like NarutoxHinata, or NarutoxSakura depending on what you ship) or involve OCs (like NarutoxOC)
• The reader can be related to the original cast (like Tony Stark’s daughter) or not (she’s just a girl that happens to wind up friends with the Avengers’ children)
• Unless your chosen fandom already has mpreg in it, I’d prefer you avoid it. That’s not to say characters can’t have two or more moms or dads…just that I’d like you to manage that realistically.
• Don’t just tell the exact same story but with the kids (like if you do KHR, don’t have them do the Kokuyo Land Arc and then the Ring Tournament and then the Future—unless there’s a really good reason that they have to)
• Any sort of pairing/sexuality or lack thereof for the original cast and the children is absolutely fine
• Any length or type of story is fine. Drabbles to novel-length stories are all a-okay!
• Fan fic only, please.

I tend to get really long-winded with my challenges, so I tried to be brief this time around! Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. I’d be really interested to see any responses to this, but that’s probably just because I always make up children for fandoms I like. Eheheh…

Description: A challenge for those who want to explore the beginning routes of a relationship. “Why did they end up this way?” Or maybe, “What if they met when they were kids?” Now in doing this challenge you can possibly explain a thing or two.

Trust Me
Harmless Romance
Agree to Disagree

If you can’t make things happen in sequential order, that’s perfectly fine. These words aren't meant to be done in order. I’m not looking for perfection, just an interesting read. If you do, however, manage to both do these in order and also connect them all... then kudos!

1. If you can, make it blatantly obvious this is a reply to my challenge. Otherwise I’m blind to everything.
2. Any sort of pairing is fine by my standards. Or non-pairing, do what you’d like.
3. Single fandom or multiple is also acceptable.
4. Any genre is suitable here, just do what feels right with the chapter.
5. 500 word count minimum per chapter.
6. Age Range of characters MUST BE 1 – 12.
7. Speaking of characters, this can be a reader insert, canon, or with an OC. Do what suits your fancy.

Description: Hi all! I just had a humdinger of an idea~!

CAUTION: It's about to get crazy sappy in here... I'm talking sap level 9 okay? You were warned.

It's called the *drum-roll* Pass a Smile Challenge! In this challenge, people are encouraged to post a story dedicated to their fellow writers (one or more) as gestures of friendship. It's pretty simple. Write them something you know they'll like and is sure to make them smile. We're spreading the love people!!!

Just make sure they know who it's for in the summary.

There's no limit on the categories of types of stories that can be used. Do they like one-shots? Give 'em one. Need a walkthrough? Help 'em out! Do they like poems, ficlets, cyoas, reader inserts, or erotica? Write away! Maybe they prefer fluffy, lemony, limey, angsty, thrillers. Give 'em what they want! The main point is to plaster a smile on their face and hopefully they'll be inspired to do the same.

(The only exception is: keep it morally responsible. Lemons and BDSM ((so long as it's consenting)) are allowed, but no underage stuff. Absolutely no pedophilia or rape or anything of the sort. And this goes without saying--but I'll say it anyway--follow the rules of this site.)

But that aside, go! Write my pretties~! Write!!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!! ...ahem... Aaaaanyway...

Who knows? If they like it, maybe they'll return the favor and dedicate one back or dedicate one to another writer or BOTH--thus passing smiles all around! =D

Oh and recipients aren't completely off the hook either! They are encouraged to (I can't force you) to leave a review letting the writer know that it did indeed make them smile. (Think of it as a bonus for the writer.)

So that's it! Be kind to each other, review often for writer's sake, and have fun spreading the joy!

Requirements/Guidelines ::
There's not a lot I can think of actually putting here because I'd hate to limit creativity on other's part. I'd say that the only true requirement for it is that it has to relate to the item on the list somehow, no matter what "it" is, but that goes without saying. A story, a poem, a song... the sky's the limit! You can choose to do only one item from the list, a select few, or even all of them — really, it's all up to you!

The List ::
1. things you said at 1 am
2. things you said through your teeth
3. things you said too quietly
4. things you said over the phone
5. things you didn’t say at all
6. things you said under the stars and in the grass
7. things you said while we were driving
