Well...heyhey, now that we all have LiveJournals again...

...I predict a rebirth of this community!  And NOT just for FanFiction.  (Though if you insist, SAra, fanfic can remain in integral part.)

And hey, if anyone wants a trip down Embarrasing Memory Lane, just read our earlier entries...I'll be the first to say that I was such a dork! 

So what say you?  I think we can find interesting things to do/talk about, and stuff like that.  Only someone needs to get Ally to rejoin under her new username, and we need to think of things to do.

Tell me what you think.

Omg, this thing has been rendered basically obsolete, a very sad ordeal indeed!
Recalled some lovely memories of the original 'Notebook' tonite, and was wondering if we had the time for it anymore? Ah, well. Ally left anyways. I'd do it, tho. Occasionally.

Wake up people!

Come on now, new challenges are always fun. Perhaps if we actually do this one, it might get a bit better. At least try it!
Ok, so here we go. What we're going to do is, for a week, listen to any random conversation held in the halls of school. You know, when you're walking down the hall and all of a sudden you hear someone say something weird? Well, store what that person said in your memory and write it down at the soonest possible date. For your challenge is to:
Gather random bits of conversation you hear in the halls into one great big semi-coherent and rather weird conversation.
By Sunday (11/14), you should have posted your conversation. Then we can laugh at it. Ok?
So get cracking!
~Cat

You guys are in sooooo much trouble! Post your challenges, dingbats!! So far I'm the only one who actually wrote something. And I know they were sort of lame, but it was at the end of drafting and I was pressed for time. I'll probably add stuff to them later. Tink, have fun with "consummate". So post your bloody challenges before I bloody well will...*trails off* Shoot you with the hidden guns I keep in my violin case because I am part of the Mafia? Yes, that seems to work.

NOTE TO SELF: Get long black trenchcoat as soon as possible.

Ok, Tink, I've finally got around to posting challenges. And I forgot how to properly post them, so whatever.

FOR TINK:
300 or more words on a Merry/Pippin fic after Frodo leaves for the Grey Havens. Must include the words "intolerable, chocolate, and consummate." You must also create a drinking song that they sing.

FOR ALLY:
300 words or more on a Eowyn/Faramir romance, set during RotK. Must include "insanity, wicked, and bananas".

FOR MIA:
300 or more words on a Hermione/Draco/Ron love triangle set during the 6th book. Must include a confrontation between Draco and Ron. Must include "bollucks, pliers, thumbscrews, and squibs."

I may add more later, as I am pressed for time and it is the end of drafting.

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! I did it! FINALLY! I was beginning to feel left out. *sobs* Lol. My journal absolutely sucks, but at least I got it set up. Much thanks to Cat for helping me to get started, even though I like being stubborn, to Tink for getting us all an account, and Mia, you're just there! I think of something to thank you for later. Anyways, you are all coming to Fallsington Day. It's mandatory; I'm forcing you. And OMG! The cow! Lost is on tonight! All must watch and post reviews! It's getting better and Dom, if it's possible, is getting hotter!!!!! Cat is sitting next to me reading this over my shoulder and she assures me that Dom is indeed getting hotter. She also just informed me that he changes his shirt. AMAZING! Lol. G2g read the challenge now, TTFN, tata for now! =)

Hugs and Kisses,
Ally <3

Challenge #1

Alright, lovies. Now that we all have livejournals, I am assigning our first-of-the-year challenge. It is, I am sure you realize, the month of October. This means, as I am sure Cat and Ally especially realize, there are some birthdays coming up. We also have a Mia-birthday for which to compensate. So, since Miss Tink only has $10 and six other birthdays with which to deal, she has decided to assign:

The Birthday Challenge

Now, lovies, let me explain. In Fanfiction Land we have these wonderful things called ficathons (I posted my assignment about six days ago and no one reviewed it, not even the girl for whom I wrote it, grrrrr), where each person comments with a fic idea they want someone else to write. Then people are assigned to these challenges at random. However, there are only four of us, and only three with birthdays around now. (Mine isn't 'til Maaaarch.... *cries*) So instead of a ficathon, I designed our Birthday Challenge.

What happens is each of you comments with a fic/story/poem you want written. It can be for any fandom, or it can be original. (For example, Cat can request something for her story. Or Ally can say, "I want two male characters who are falling in love and I want Tink to write a story about it," although that's not the correct format so Tink could say "screw you." Not that she would, of course. :-P) Then you comment twice more with two different fics/stories/poems, making sure you assign whomever you want to write it to each one. As soon as someone posts with something she wants you to write, you're free to start. They'll be due the 30th, since that's Cat's birthday.

So here's an example with the correct format:

Request from Tink
Writer: Ally
Fic
Length: 300 words (minimum 250, maximum 1000, but the writer can choose to go over the limit if she so wishes)
Fandom: Moulin Rouge
Pairing: Christian/Satine (you can also do male/male, male/female, or female/female if unspecified characters)
Rating: PG
Genre: Fluff
Summary: Christian finds a lonely elephant in the woods. Satine wants to take it home.
Restrictions: No other pairings.

Get it, got it, good? Yay. So each of you will do two, and I'll be doing three. Eep.

Also- make sure you request a fandom the author knows, and if you're assigned something you can't do (for instance, Cat gets an NC-17, or Mia gets a G) comment and explain why and we'll see if we can change it. Yes? Yes.

Alright, post!

Hello fellow Elite! You will be v. glad to know that Ally now has a Livejournal and the challenges may commence. Tink, you can do the honors.
And while we're on the topic of important events, I don't like the HMCG anymore. There is another guy in my class, who we shall label as the HMBG (Hot Marching Band Guy, for those uninitiated) and I have decided that I like him. Actually, I love his hair. *squeaks*
But anyway, moving on. I have a request to make. Can this challenge involve writing something? Not something silly, unless it is LOTR related of course. I'm in a very writing-ish mood. So, anyway, I shall bother Ally to post more, and we shall all be happy. And use the word bloody quite profusely. And such.
Au revior!

I love it Tink! I really do! Now we just have the problem of Ally actually getting online for once in her life. *sighs*
Anyway, who wants to create the first challenge? I say we get Mia to do it. Because she doesn't go to PHS and doesn't know important things like the fact that I don't sit next to HMCG anymore. And other important stuff like that. *nods wisely* Or Tink, you can write a challenge too!
And Mia, you absolutely have to start reading Shoebox if you haven't already. After all, reading Shoebox is all that Ally and I do in Fund. Drafting. It's great fun, actually.
And so anyway, I really like the Notebook, keep it up Tink!

Hey all!
This is the beyond-fantabulous Mia here! You know you love me. Yes, you do, you just haven't quite realised it yet! So, go Elite! 'Cuz we rock, and no one can tell us that we don't. And if they did, I'd prolly hit them over the head with my purse. And you guys know all the crap I keep in my purse. I may not be the smartest person in the world, but I can SHOP! And if we really look at the world today, that is the most important thing, no? Hmmmmmm.... oh. I also have a one-track mind. Except when I forget what I'm talking about. Which..... happens alot. And it just happened now. So I don't really have anything to say now. Except you guys all saw the ever-smart and/or inventive-ness of Tink's post. So now I'm buying time, trying to make mine as long as hers. Except it's not really working. Go SAILING!

Subject:Tink
Security:Public
Mood: annoyed

And first entry goes to moi! Meowhahahahaha. Anyway, just a couple of form rules- whoever is posting should type her name in the subject line, just 'cause it eliminates that whole omb-there's-supposed-to-be-a-subject-what-do-I-TYPE? thing that might very well just be another ditzy Tink thing but hey you never know. Anyway. Whoever has the Physical Notebook- which we will not use if we keep this, yes?- should email me with what's in there, so I can post it up here. Or else just email all of us, and each of you post whatever you wrote. We can decide on an order, I s'pose, though I think Ally went first and then Cat, so it could just go Ally, Cat, me, Mia. (Sorry you're last, Mia- it's because no one loves you.) Challenges can be posted by whomever, whenever, so long as you wait until everyone has completed the last challenge. If we're stuck on challenges we can do that in order too, so someone is assigned to create a challenge in order to get stuff going. Be sure your challenges/answers/posts aren't going to offend anyone, though, 'cause remember, I am moderating here. (I have such power. And issues.)

If I get annoying, yell at me. (I'm kidding about the whole I'm-in-charge thing, by the way. It's just fun, pretending I'm controlling this. :-P)

Oh, and always make sure you click the little "rich text" thing at the bottom of the type-space before you start typing, 'cause if you do it afterwards you lose what you already had, and it just doesn't look pretty without it. Also make sure you're posting to the right journal.

And I will pretty this up, or at least as much as I can.

So right now there are three issues: 1) are we even using this thing, 2) can Anna join, and 3) we need to post challenges and responses.

 

And on a more personal note: I am v. v. busy. I won't bore you with a list of all the things I'm doing, but let's just say it's a lot. Therefore, it might take a couple days or so before stuff is posted. And let's not take this too siriusly, okay? It's not a project or an organization or anything. It's just a dumb little fun thing we're doing. So if we start getting into fights over this or anything, I'm dropping out.

 

Anyway- get accounts, lovies! Your first post can be off-topic, just a kind of okay-I'm-figuring-this-out-and-oh-I'm-Cat-by-the-way, but after that it is down to business. Because we are DUMB. Yes? Yes.

 

(See the "music" thing down there or up there or wherever it is? The grammar's all off- the song title's not in quotes and I'm missing my beloved Oxford comma- because it wouldn't all fit. Just so you know.)
