"PIC to FIC" Story Challenge
First, I'd like to start off by saying what a wonderful job HB(?) did on the AJCS Picture Gallery. It's beautiful and I love the "title/captions" that go with each one.
However, as I was going through the different pictures of our boys, I had a delightful thought. A picture is worth a thousand words, or so the old saying goes. Perhaps we should try and prove it as true as possible by each list-sib picking a picture and then telling a story about *all* characters shown in it with 1000 words or less.
If the list likes the idea, I propose the following Challenge Requirements:
1) Pick one picture. Tell us *in the header* which picture it is.
(i.e.: Ares Gallery, picture # 3)
note: The Joxer Gallery is not up yet, so those wanting to do a Joxer picture must wait until the gallery is available.
2) Write your story of 1000 (or less - but *not* more) words. Please be sure to include any other characters in your picture.
(i.e.: If your "Cupid" picture has Aphrodite in it, she should be in the story as well.)
3) Be sure to make your story relevant to what is happening in your picture.
(i.e.: location, events, facial expressions)
4) Try to use the "title/caption" of your picture somewhere in the story. It doesn't have to be the *title* of your story, it can be dialogue or a thought blurb or whatever...as long as it is in there.
5) Can be any rating or category (i.e.: humor, drama, angst, etc.) and it can be "gen", but if you want to have a 'ship, use the ones that are required by the list. Ares/Joxer or Cupid/Strife.
Well, there it is. My kooky idea. What do you guys think?
