The FV&TTT Fall/Winter Holiday Season Writing Challenge!!!

Post by Rowena » Wed Oct 07, 2009 2:52 pm

Hi Everyone!

Well it's October, the month of Halloween - the spooky door that opens the way to the rest of the fall/winter holiday season, and all the stories that come with it!

This season's Writing Challenge begins with pictures, imagery. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to flip through your favorite Nightcrawler comics, pick out three of your favorite action frames (the more bizarre and unrelated the better) and join them all into a single Nightcrawler adventure. Or, you can just use these:

You don't have to use the text included with the pictures unless you want to. There's no page limit and no limit on story topic, although if you want to center your Nightcrawler adventure around a Halloween, Thanksgiving, a December holiday, or even a New Year's theme, that would be great. :)

The Deadline for this challenge will be SUNDAY, JANUARY 3, 2010. That should be plenty of time to come up with a fun, fluffy, frightening, festive or funny new adventure for our favorite Fuzzy Elf.

I hope you like this new challenge! Good luck, everyone! :D:D

It's a shame I can't write worth crap because that sounds like a very fun prompt.
I think I'll just do a drawing for it.

I don't know. I figured it could just be a part of the randomness.

Odd, the link was working last night. Well, I found a different, smaller version of the same picture and pasted in that link, so hopefully this one won't break. Sorry about that!

I couldn't see it either, only a photobucket bandwith exceeded marker, but today it's better. Thanks, Rowena, Mistress Of Fanfic Challenges.

Oooh, I *love* that picture! Edgar Rice Burroughs-jacket style. Great choice of pics.

I prolly will sit this one out, with NaNoWriMo on the horizon, but with luck will have time to read the wonderful fics all the non-lazy writers will turn out. :D Even if I did, I am unable to scan stuff and all that ... guess I could refer to issue and page #'s for alternative panels/frames. (Although one I would use is in the NightScrawlers' top frame -- the "I'd say the action foud YOU" where he's jumping down from the church.)

And, BitterBamfing, you could write a general idea of how your story would go, then keep filling in the blanks. Might discover you can write after all. But posting a pic for others to use would be wonderful, too. I admire folks who can do visual art because I totally cannot.

Good luck, everyone!

And here I am, newcomer, who has all of five comics and two trade paperbacks, none of which feature Nightcrawler heavily. Woe is me.

However, I do know what pics I am going to use. I have mentioned before that I have no idea how to get stuff up to show you, so I'll try to describe them.

One will be the second pic you've got posted up there, with the guy who looks like Nightie without furryness.

Another is the panel in issue #169 of Uncanny where Kurt is clinging to a wall and a girl gets thrown through a window.

The last will be Uncanny issue #177 where Kurt is punching Mystique's lights out.

I will be ignoring all context, and I will not necessarily go in the order above. In fact, I probably won't.

And I will be writing a story that will be a little bit ahead of what is currently happening in X-Men... I already have the idea, just have to start writing it.

LOL three?? Wait... this, Nanowrimo, and... hm what else?

Wow, this challenge is so not for me, but I'm excited to see what people will come up with. I *really* hope someone uses that page in the 'vampire' issue of Excalibur (i forget teh number) where Kurt got locked in a closet because that guy Rigel or something forgot he always had fangs :P

Number three is a secret... at least until Wednesday when it becomes official.

Then I'll tell you. Look for it in the 'this coffee tastes astounding' thread.

Did that already. :P

And I said I was inspired, not committed or even jazzed. Just inspired. I'll scribble some things, doodle stuff on a page, and probably find a nice duck at the pond to throw bread at and forget all about it.


If I don't though, expect a winner (winner chicken-dinner).

Is anybody working on this in his/her massive amount of spare time? (snicker) Again, Rowena has come up with a wonderful Challenge of which most Nighty fans would dream.

I hope there will be some entries. I am not up to it due to limits of my imagination. Also finally got going again on my own Crawlerfic and don't want to detour as I did last time (again, I apologise for the length of my entry!).

I may need to do some not-so-subtle U2U-ing and prod a few folks to do what I'm too chicken to do.

I have a great story and plenty of images.

Problem however, no scanner.

I was really getting ready to write this down.... I was totally psyched.
