I don't see the problem with being alone with Chara. I'm sure we'll make friends, eventually.

[You're filled with too much Determination to give up on anyone, even Chara.]

I would not fret too much over the notice of rejection that crossed your message box this afternoon. You are nothing if not prolific, and I applaud that. And do not fret that you lack the time to engage in these "games". Places such as this and those things you call "memes" seem the pace you need in order to keep your brain and fancy limber in between new tales. Though given the prolific nature of that brain and fancy, it amazes me that you have a moment even to think of us who 'lurk' in the 'creative centers of [your] brain'.

And what is this about a tale of my youth and the young lady you assigned as my 'sweetheart'? Are there not other tales you could write that do not involve something so personal? You have said there are enough lacunae in my work (or rather, the work of history's version of me) to keep you busy for a lifetime. What of exploring those notions?

A relevant question: How many different ways do you back up or save your writing for the long term?

I am going to use the Force here: You did notice that I missed a check-in for yesterday. *waves hand* There. Now! Let us continue. I will be your host for the rest of this month, and I look forward to ending September on a high note. What have you been doing today?

And a silly question to start things off: Do you do hand exercises at your keyboard before (or after) writing?

Out with the old, in with the new, hm? Tch. Typical.

Throw me a bone once in a while, then we'll talk.

It's time to sign up for the October WIP challenge!

Some people join the challenge midmonth, or comment on check-in posts without signing up, which is fine -- I'm glad there's a way for the challenge to be useful in a variety of ways.

But for those of you who find the commitment of signing up useful, please leave a comment with the below information.

Signups will be open until the end of September.



  • Level of challenge: 1 chapter, 1000 words, 1 fic finished, whatever you like
  • Fandom(s) involved: if you know at this point
  • What you're looking for from the challenge: this could be as vague or specific as you like: someone to be accountable to, someone to remind you to write, someone to bounce ideas off, etc.
  • What you could offer other participants yourself: ditto!
  • How people should contact you: DW message, e-mail, IM etc.
  • Time zone: useful for seeing who might be up for a writing session at a time convenient to you


Copypaste below:



I couldn't continue to run this challenge without assistance with the daily check-in posts. Many thanks to everyone who's helped with the check-ins before!

Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out. A week per person would be ideal (I usually assign weeks running Sunday-Saturday just for consistency). I'm happy to help come up with suggestions for discussion topics (& Friday or Saturday is usually the general chat/snippet/beta-seeking etc. post).

(& if you've completed a fic through the challenge, don't forget our collection on AO3! If you need AO3 invites, let me know.)

Hello! It's been a very long time... are you finally going to find me some friends? I have the tea all ready, and I'm sure Tarin would love it if I talked to someone else for a while. He's very patient, but he's heard so many of my stories already. And, poor dear, he just doesn't really understand very much about magic these days, if he ever did.

Oh! but please don't let Tarin out for now. People always get so very strange about him. I think it's because of- you know. [She lowers her voice] His condition.

[Is that... a quiet groan, from somewhere in the background? Maybe. She looks around a little guiltily, before bringing her attention back.]

But I really shouldn't keep you, I suppose. It's just been so long since I had the chance to chat. I miss it.

 ... what are you even doing.

Nobody really goes 'round these parts anymore. Everything's out of date. Even my stuff in this place's out of date!

You don't even go here anymore what are you doing--

Dear Mun,

What you are attempting to do is reprehensible! To use me as bait to try and lure in a Beatrix like I'm some sort of meat slab or common trollop!

I have half a mind to report you--[Listens to his mun telling him something.]

Your favorite pairing? Us? Why, if you think you can just butter me up--[Listens some more.]

Why yes, it would be nice to see her. I've missed her terribly. The way the light of the moon gleams across her fine blade, her bosom heaving--

[Steiner's eyes widen and he stomps up and down a couple of times. Clink clink goes the armor.] Y-You made me say all of that!? You cad! You charlatan!
