Monday Madness: Original Fic

Remember last month's entry? Yeah, the one where I gave prompts, and in return asked for prompts for comment fics in our own stories.

I have been remiss again, because I really didn't give myself enough time to complete the challenge! I did manage to write one comment fic (link to story in this comment) (a little larger actually, so let's call it an excerpt) in one of my own stories based on a prompt from landrews, but I also had prompts from erinm_4600 and fairyniamh, and I still intend to work on them... so I'll use this month to do that (clearly a week isn't enough!).

Also in on the challenge were entries from fairyniamh in her Cookies (link to story in this comment) 'verse, and asphaltcowgrrl gave us a sexy little story linked in this comment. Well done, both of you!

A couple of others said they were working on stories or had ideas for them, so if you are still on that wavelength, my fellow original writers, would you like another month to write more? If you're already done link us here, as I'd love to see how you did, but no worries if you're not ready to share!

And otherwise, has anyone got any thoughts/comments/new stories or any other conversations about orig. fic that you'd like to have this month? *settles in, ears open* Come on down!
