The Challenge Yourself Challenge 31 October 2018

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Challenge Name: The Challenge Yourself Challenge

Challenge Deadline: 31st October 2018

Accepted Fandom(s): Harry Potter any other fandom need to message me first for approval to ensure I know it 

Accepted Ratings: all

Challenge Details: After writing my post about writing vs reading differences I came up with this idea for a challenge to work on stories that you wouldn't typically work on because of whatever reason. So for this challenge I want YOU to pick your challenge! It doesn't matter what you pick it could be a certain character, genre, pairing, etc. but I will be judging you on how well you've done with your own personal challenge. 

A few things before we get started:

1. You must tell me what it is you are challenging yourself to do.

2. You cannot have posted anything featuring that specific character, genre, etc. So if you choose to challenge yourself to write a Harry Potter centered fic you can't have any stories posted with Harry as the main character. 

3. It can be any length but if its more than a oneshot I would like at least 2 chapters to be posted by the deadline.

4. Multiple entries are allowed as long as the challenge is different

Rewards:

I will review all submissions for the challenge

3rd place: 1 review 

2nd place: 3 reviews 

1st place: 5 reviews

Oh gosh, I'll be a maybe.

I suppose that means I'll be writing a Dumbledore/Grindelwald piece (oh lord, save me). I also want to challenge myself with Mystery. So, I'll try to write a Dumbledore/Grindelwald Mystery piece.

And as a backup or a second entry I'll try something with High Fantasy (perhaps something to do with the communities within the Dark Forest or something).

O.O

YES okay. I'm going to try a HTTYD fic featuring a relationship between two sisters. (Mostly I'm concerned about all the dragons. 😅) But I'm super excited for this, so in!

I very much look forward to both of these entries!

I'm gonna be a maybe with a Founders Era fic (because my comfort zone is Next-Gen and Founders is about as far from that as you can get) and I'm going to attempt to write a story without a single hint of romance (because literally every. single. fic. on my entire AP is a romance of some sort).

Also, question, are you ok with entries that are combined with other challenges?

I’ll be a maybe for this. TBH, it’s going to be quite hard me to find anything I haven’t already done. Let me look through my AP and see what I can come up with.

Great! If you need any help let me know and I can look through your page as well and see if I can come up with something

I'll be a maybe for this.  I've done 4 fandoms, 6 HP eras, and most genres so I don't know what I'll do yet but I'm going to try to think of something really out there for me.  At the moment I'm leaning towards maybe something in the Rebuilding time frame or a different fandom.

Can it be something we've already started? I've started a humor story which or really isn't my forte and I'm struggling with it.

I’m going to combine this with the Anything but Harry Challenge and write something way different for me- an epistolary Pirate/Norse mythology mashup! Crossing my fingers it isn’t a train wreck. Tried it as a regular narrative and didn’t feel right. We’ll see!

That would depend on how much (if anything) has been posted already. If you have only started writing it but haven't posted anything you're good if you've started posting I would say no more than 2 chapters can be posted already.

Just wondering what fandom you're planning on doing for this challenge? As I stated in my rules, any fandom other than Harry Potter first needs to message me for approval as I do not typically read outside of the HP fandom.

Okay, then I'm a yes. It will be a story about the Knight Bus and the challenge for myself is writing humor.
