The /ggFTW Writing Challenge!

/ggFTW Writing Challenge!

Remake of this:

A long time ago, Cath and I both got a crazy idea at the same time: To make basically a fiction quilt. While many stepped up to the plate, many also lost steam. However, I think that we should give it another go.

So here it is! A second coming of the writing challenge!

The culprit was this thread: (link). Mitchi and I had this shared idea of doing a writing activity similar to the fanfic100 challenge, only on a more manageable scale. tl;dr, here's the gist of it:
  • We will provide a table filled with "prompts" or a random assortment of words.
  • Claim a prompt that inspires you, and start writing!
  • Post your piece, read each other's work, and enjoy the sheer pleasure of reading and writing.

Err... Come again?
Anyone can pick numbers/prompts from the table below, and pledge to write something (short story, fanfic, poetry, essay, novel, etc) using that prompt. Each time people post their pieces, I'll link the submission into the table until all the prompts are used, like sewing together a patchwork quilt.
  • Original pieces or fanfiction (game/TV/movies/etc) will do. Game fanfics are encouraged, though, since we're a gaming community.
  • Any genre (action/adventure/horror/romance/humor/etc)
  • Any length or format (just use common sense; 1 sentence is NOT a valid submission)
  • Each person can claim a max of 5 prompts; first come, first served. To claim a prompt, reply here with your choice. (If you decide to back out, please leave a note here so that someone else can adopt your abandoned claim.)
  • 1 prompt = 1 piece, although you can get 5 prompts and use them to write a 5-chapter story
  • Collaborations and co-writing are encouraged.
  • We're not grammar Nazis since we're doing this for fun, but do bother to use Word's spellcheck feature.
  • ENJOY IT. We're not competing or anything. ^o^
