I have one! I already have a story idea for this but I don't mind sharing. It might take me a while to get mine out as I have a ton of stuff I'm working and the story I have planned is not short.

Title: "Lines of Communications"

Have fun,
Matt Smiley

I don't have a problem with openning it for submission now, however I would like to see a fairly wide window for everyone to get involved. I think we could get some real good stories out of this. 3 months, 6 months? I'll go with the group on this. dragon, Denise, anyone else, what do you think?

Months!!!! I can't think Months!!I was thinking more in terms of by June 15th or something like that  Unless you want epics... and I just can't cope with that at the moment.  I'd be happy to do this challenge though...
(going away muttering to herself...months... months,... I've got Legacy and Castled and Combined to finish, and then Matter of Degree to tidy  up and AfterMath to write and FarSight to proofread, and another Thunderbirds one to do .. Months..... !)
Give us a date Matt!!!   to have it completed and posted!
  Smiley Of course Denise might prefer months...

My June 25th or yours? I'm ahead of you here don't forget, so I get 6 hours less writng time. and that 6 hours can add up to an awful lot of words!
Not that I'm being fussy
Or pernikity
or difficult
or...(Louise shrieks as Matt puts her into a headlock and threatens her with dire consequences unles she shuts up!) Do you realise I could put 50,000 words into this post? Wow that's a lot!
and I pressed a utton earlier and my previous message disappeared .. or it could have been posted so there might be two posts like this... alright, I'm going, I'm going... sulks off in a huff.

Picky picky  Grin Ok just to make it fair we'll go with June 25 @ 23:59 UTC. Nice level playing field here! (Matt reaches for the bottle of hair dye to get rid of the grey he just got.)  Grin

Is it just me -- or are these little smiles really a blast to play with?  Cheesy  OK, I'm in for the challenge.  And a month seems like a decent interval of time, especially since I already have 3 stories on the burner, simmering to a boil.  That gives me time to finish at least one of those before tackling this one.  Thanks, Matt, for the idea!
Yours,
Denise  Cool

There isn't a smiley for sniggering.  Angry
I want a sniggering smiley Cry
I think I might just renameFarSight ; Lines of Communication -sniggering.. and no smiley.  Sad

But, no. I'll be a good little girl and do a story ..and a sexy  picture as well!!!! So it won't be about Paul Foster then!! Grin
Ys , these smileys are fun! Cheesy

Well, I've finished Lines of Communication.( several handerchiefs later) I won't be fit for much now, writing stuff like that is exhausting. Not even sure if its good, just bloody emotional..... are we having a day when we post them, or are we allowed/supposed to post them as soon as possible?

Challenge Master...Matt....your decision!
