Puddle Jumper Fics
| SEVENTH CHALLENGE
||We certainly would make a handsome couple. I believe that's what people say when two people are obviously in love and are best friends. What, however, would the higher-ups think when they discovered our secret. Would they be as understanding and forgiving our slip into intimacy, I wonder. We could call it off, but when I'm in your presence all sense of propriety flees to the four winds and I just feel warm and fuzzy. And, I want to stay with you forever.

Two inanimate objects: guitar, music
SFB-SGAC Stargate Atlantis Weekly Fan Fiction Challenge
22 Minutes, Two Inanimate Objects, an Opening paragraph and your creativity equals a challenge worth taking.
Dust off your typewriter, sharpen your pencils, and clean-up your computer screens because The Buzz has added another challenge and this time it's for Stargate Atlantis. Our rules are simple (see below), always in the interest of fun, and if you are involved in any other ficathon, feel free to write this scene/ficlet/vignette as a part of that. This challenge runs weekly ending on Monday nights @ 11:59 p.m.
Ratings can run through NC-17 (if your Yahoo Group takes NC-17), but please mark it clearly.
Here's the mix and the rules:
You take one or two characters (your choice), add a couple innanimate ojbects (our choice), and one opening line. We provide you with the opening line. You must write non-stop for 22 minutes. Get yourself an eggtimer or bribe one of your kids to come in and stop you at the 22 minute mark and leave you alone during that time.
At 10 minutes you will probably hit a wall where you will think you can't write anything else. Keep going. Write anything in that time. Just don't stop scrawling/keying/typing. Write "I am writing garbage" if you have to, but don't stop. A minute or so after that, you will hear, see or feel your next thought/scene. It will be very quietly delivered. Pick up the scene and keep going. This will more than likely be some of your best writing. During the 22 minutes, anything you write is okay. DO NOT STOP AND GO BACK TO EDIT. After 22 minutes, you can edit.
