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!

Sounds interesting! I'd like a prompt please! :)

(and question: since this deals with the dark side of love, can I write a ship for this challenge?) Just want to make certain. :)

Yes. Although this is mainly a gen com, pairings are allowed so long as they fall into our ratings guidelines.

Our guidelines can be found here WITH the exception that the rating of "R" is allowed at MPTT, but only up to "PG-13" on the challenge community.

I will send you a prompt!

I was going to avoid taking on another story when I am already behind in the writing of several others -- but when I read about the challenge theme, I at once got an idea for a story, so now I must participate! :-D

I would like some elements, please!

I'll have a go, see if the muses are willing...

ACK! I just realized I FORGOT to paste your prompts in the email! Expect a second one, LOL!

I'm not having a good spell with my Muses, but I'll try and see how I go if that's OK.
Jan. 28th, 2013 02:15 pm (UTC)
Done! I hope that your Muses cooperate!
Jan. 28th, 2013 11:23 am (UTC)
Element/prompt please. As always, no guarantees I can come in timely, but I'll try my best :-)

I make no guarantees-- I'm not much of a writer any more-- but I'd like to give it a shot...
Jan. 28th, 2013 09:32 pm (UTC)
I don't believe I have your email to send you your prompt words? If you'd rather not post it here, you can email me at aelfwina at gmail dot com.

Against my better judgment, I'm in.
Jan. 30th, 2013 02:11 am (UTC)
Your prompt words are on the way! Perhaps your judgement is sounder than you think! ;)

Hmmm, interesting. My muse and I haven't spoken in forever, so I'd like to give this a try, please.

Feb. 16th, 2013 11:31 pm (UTC)
Did you ever get your prompt? I have it indicated in the prompt file that I assigned you one, but cannot find a record of it in my sent file.
Feb. 12th, 2013 04:32 pm (UTC)
Just posted my story to the queue! I realized that the instructions tell us to tag the story '12 february, but since it's 2013, I think that tag should be altered to '13 february for this one as well as for the art challenge for this month. ;-)
Feb. 12th, 2013 05:44 pm (UTC)
LOL! Thanks! Tags are something I *can* edit! Yes, it should be '13 february.
Feb. 16th, 2013 11:15 pm (UTC)
I know its quite late, but can i have a prompt? I thought that i replied in the email once you announced on the challenge.

Feb. 16th, 2013 11:30 pm (UTC)
Hmm...I checked my "sent" box, and it indicated I sent your prompts on Jan. 28. I have re-sent it now--please let me know if you get it!
