February 2013 Story Challenge: The Dark Side of Love

The February Challenge will have the theme "The Dark Side of Love". Here is your chance to explore the less pleasant aspects of love: misunderstandings, partings, grief, jealousy, unrequited love or even the little things about a loved one that annoy. Elements for the challenge will be a list of words beginning with the letters in "February". Authors should choose at least four of their words to use in the story. You may use more than four if you like but it's not required.

The February challenge stories will be due Thursday, February the14th and will be revealed on Saturday, February the 16th. Please tag your story "dark side of love" and " '12 Februrary". Please remember to use the following header template (also found on the community profile page), and to put the name of your story and your name in the subject line.



To request your elements, please leave a comment to this post. If you have not participated before, please leave an email address so that I can send you your elements. Or you can email the mods at aelfwina@gmail.com or virginia_lee_redcat@yahoo.com

I hope we'll have lots of participants for our February challenge!

2013 February Art Challenge: The Dark Side of Love

The February Art Challenge theme is "The Dark Side of Love". Any media is welcome!

Here is your chance to explore the less pleasant aspects of love: misunderstandings, partings, grief, jealousy, unrequited love or even the little things about a loved one that annoy.

All art must be rated G or PG. See our ratings guidelines here! After the challenge, art will be archived at Many Paths to Tread.

Upload pictures of your project to your favorite photo-sharing site (Photo-bucket, Flickr, LJ scrapbook, etc.), and then post the picture to the community by Thursday, February 14th and will be revealed on Saturday, February 16th.

Include the following header:



Please put the following in the subject line: Art: Title of piece by your name (e.g. "Art: Portrait of an Elf by MarySue"). This is very important, in case there are also stories in the moderator's queue, so that we mods don't get the entries confused. Tag your entry "art: '12 february" and "dark side of love".
