Weekend Challenge: Superstitious

So I had other plans for our Weekend Challenge this week up until I realized what today's date is . . .



How can I possibly pass up such an important date??

So pick a number, 1 - 70, or more, and I'll give you the corresponding superstition in hopes of inspiring you to create a fanwork of your choosing that somehow relates to that old superstition!

Our "weekend" challenges now close at midnight on Thursday night, so you'll have our week to (hopefully) be inspired!

Rewards I'm offering? Black cat banners, icons, sig tags, and drabbles/ficlets! For the fandoms/pairings I can write, just dig through my tags, but I should be able to make an icon or sig tag for you of just about anything your heart desires!

Happy creating!

Counting Crows – not just a 90s rock band. The number of crows you see foretells the future:

One’s bad,

Two’s luck,

Three’s health,

Four’s wealth,

Five’s sickness,

Six is death

Happy writing!

Burying a statue of St. Joseph in the yard will help a house sell quickly.

Happy writing; good luck!

10. Put a stray eyelash in the palm of your hand, make a wish, and blow it away to make your wish come true.

15. In several cultures, a bird defecating on you is good luck. (Now there's a surprise! ;))

I know what you mean about a lack of words on the weekend!! Good luck, and happy writing!

13. From The Moonlit Road’s page about Cajun superstitions: “To protect against the Cajun loup garou (werewolf), lay 13 small objects such as pennies, beans, or broom straws by your doors. The werewolf is not too bright. She cannot count higher than 12. When she comes to the 13th object, she gets sooo confused and has to start over. The poor thing will be there counting all night until the dawn when she must flee the sun.” (Sounds like the loup garou is about as good at math as I am. There are more Cajun superstitions on that site, if you want to check out the link!)


45. If you accidentally spill salt at the table, throw some over your shoulder or else you’ll have bad luck.


This should bring some interesting thoughts! Good luck, and happy writing!

(We all have our moments, my dear! I managed to leave my cell phone with my debit card in the bathroom at work today -- and then left my brand new, fancy cup! Thank God both were safely taken care of!)

11. If the clasp of your necklace winds up in front, you can make a wish as you move the clasp back to the nape of your neck.

Good luck, and happy writing!

8. A horseshoe is considered to be very good luck. (Some people say not to hang it upside-down, or the good luck will run out. Other people think this is nonsense.)

28. If your nose itches, you’re going to get in a fight. You can prevent it if your buddy smacks your hand and you smack their hand in return. (From Ireland -- Much as I love the country, that kinda figures, aye? ;))

Good luck, and happy writing!

30. Eating one grape for every stroke of midnight on New Year’s will bring you a happy year. (Spain.)

23. Never give knives as gifts. It may ruin (cut) your relationship with the person. If you give knives to a married couple, it may sever their relationship.

32. If your ears are burning, someone is talking about you.

Good luck, and happy writing!

19. Twist the stem of an apple while reciting the alphabet. The letter during which the stem comes off is the first letter of the person you will marry.

Good luck, and happy writing!

18. For single women (and maybe single gay men, I’m guessing?): if you see a bluebird on Valentine’s Day, you’ll marry a happy man.

Happy writing, and good luck!
