2013 anniversary?
by slinky (dhoney)
at June 24th, 2013 (10:12 am)

Trying to get back into writing & decided to check in with my tried-and-true OTP.

The comm seems pretty quiet, but I thought I'd check in and ask if there were any plans for an anniversary challenge.

If not, would anybody be interested in having an unofficial celebration? I could grab some themes & throw them out there if no one has any plans in the works

A Love Like No Other #74 - Two Halves
by orangekey (orangekey)
at October 18th, 2012 (12:36 am)

I was on fanfiction.net and was reading someones drabbles and really enjoyed them. It made me want to do some of my own, so I found this community to join and do just that :D

I am a little late to jump on the bandwagon, but it is the 20 year anniversary and the new anime is coming, so it isn't totally irrelevant. Also, it is my first drabble - be kind!


[Two Halves]
Usagi hurried along the street, sidewalk reflecting a yellow tint in the glow of streetlights and shop windows. Her breath puffed behind her and her nose was an unflattering shade of red against her thick, cotton candy pink scarf.

The date was December 23rd, and Usagi had just realized that she had forgotten to buy a gift for her mother. It was so simple! She had already come across the perfect gift nearly two months ago while she was browsing the jewelry store that Naru’s mother owned, and yet it had completely slipper her mind. She was so busy rushing around trying to figure out the more difficult gifts that she made such a huge mistake.

She was so preoccupied with her own self loathing that, as she turned the corner, she never noticed the large mound of beautifully wrapped gifts before her until they were already toppling down and sending her sprawling to the ground. In her daze beneath the mound of varying sized boxes, Usagi blearily noted that the moon was a perfect quarter circle shining unnaturally bright in the sky. She also thought she faintly heard a muffled crack from the small box that landed to her left.

“Watch where you’re going, Odango!” A sickeningly familiar voice scolded. “Some of those had glass in them…” Mamoru wore a mask of annoyance, but Usagi swore she heard a bit of concern in there, more than likely meant for the gifts and not her. Nevertheless, he held out his palm to her.

Usagi pushed her way out from under the mound, standing up indignantly and ignoring the outstretched hand. “Well excuse me, jerk! Maybe you shouldn’t be walking around with more gifts than you can manage!” The mixture of anger and panic caused her to flee the scene instantly, not even bothering to help gather the gifts. He was a jerk, anyways.

Gathering all the gifts once more, Mamoru walked the short distance home and opened a particularly pretty gift wrapped in pink. Opening the box, his face showed his disappointment as he extracted the glass gift: a beautiful crystal replica of the earth, complete with green tinted continents and blue seas – the same color blue as her eyes – cracked exactly in half.

How many prompts do you want to see?

The full 35 - I am craving me some UxM drabbles!!!
10(83.3%)
One for each week (total 5) works for me - short and sweet just like Usagi :)
2(16.7%)
Three for each week (total 15) should be enough to hold me over until next year!
0(0.0%)
Other, I will post in comments.
0(0.0%)


So it seems you guys are still raring to go this year, but per nessabutterfly's comment I am doing a quick poll on the number of prompts you want to see. Keep in mind there is no requirement for you to complete every prompt. How much you participate is really up to you. However, since I am late in the game getting these out to you I understand if you want a truncated version. Based on poll results I will try and post prompts by midnight tonight - tomorrow at the latest.

Edit: With only two votes we are currently tied. I will hold posting prompts until I get another vote in :)

So I've had a lot of personal issues going on in my life which prevented me from getting the prompts up during the customary time. I can and am still wanting to post them, but thought I'd get your guys opinions just in case there is 0 interest. I'll give you guys until Thursday to vote and then will post/not post depending on interest.


Poll #1858632 Usako x Mamoru Poll

Are you guys still interested in participating this year?

Yes, I need my UxM fix.
5(71.4%)
No, just wait until next year.
1(14.3%)
Possibly.
1(14.3%)

Digging up five-years-old drabbles... Maybe they should come with an expiry date.

Calling all Usako x Mamoru members!!!
by laced_victorian (laced_victorian)
at April 25th, 2012 (11:05 pm)

Hey All!

It looks like this year I am going to be heading off this year's challenge... mainly because I volunteered myself and no one had the brains to say no to my having ~powers (I promise you won't regret it Jojo!). Right now I've convinced Lillie_Bell to help me out some so I don't foresee any nuclear meltdowns.

It's a bit soon but I wanted to go ahead and get an idea of what you guys are feeling as far as this year's challenge and how many active/willing members we currently have in our ranks. This was going to be a poll but as lj is being so extremely retarded it's going to have to be mostly discussion in the comments section with possible future polling. Basically this is what I am trying to figure out:

1) How many of you are planning on participating?

2) What do you think is a good monetary value for prizes? I was thinking maybe $50 for grand prize winner, $10 for everyone who finishes all challenges, and maybe something free but still hella cool for people who participate period. Just to stop you before you get up-in-arms I understand a few years back there was an issue with people who donated money but never received anything as far as prizes that year - I will be the sole financial contributor so please do not let that concern deter you from participating.

3) How do you feel about voting for winners? AND
          A. If we do voting how do you want categories split? Over all? Weekly Challenge winner? Icons versus writing? Should this be open only to people who complete the entire challenge?
         
          B. Should the names of writers/artists for entries be anonymous to prevent clique/friend preference in voting? I know in the past people have raised concerns about this but I'm not sure how you all feel about it :)

4) Is there anything else I am missing? Issues you want to bring up? Ideas to shake things up?

I know this comm has been less active these past few years but I am hoping to change that this year and plan on pimping us out to try and get some fresh blood moving in. I know real life can get in the way (believe me do I know...) but I figured since it was the 20 year anniversary we could all come together and celebrate the couple that was a main staple for all of us at one time or another :)

Sooooo I finally finished my fic!

happy

current mood: happy

Not drabble related, but just realized that I never posted here that I finished the final chapter of my fic, Haru no Kousekiinai Arimasu!!!

Clicky for the last chapter!

Started it in high school, about 5-6 years ago, so be gentle on the earlier chapters if you're a new reader. And... erm, the title... which I'd probably change too.

Many, many thanks to kaitlynfall for beta-ing the last two chapters! It's a relief to have finally finished this fic!

-"Lina" aka Jen from Almost Grown-up to some of you ^_~
