Hello and Happy May!  Since I wasn’t chosen as May Queen—AGAIN!!! :):)--I decided to run this month’s challenge and make it a RARE PAIRS Challenge!

Every day I’m going to post a new prompt, maybe it will be a snippet for an idea for a story, or a quote from a TV show or maybe just a song title, and hopefully it will help inspire you to create that Rare Pair fic you’ve been dying to try.

Here are the Rare Pair Rules:
1.) Rare Pair means that the pairing is new rare to you. Even if it's a canon pairing in a fandom you dabble in all the time, or if you've created for that pair in the past, your rare pair still qualifies. Cross-overs with other fandoms are allowed and encouraged.
2) Rare Pair does not have to be romantic pairing. New friendship pairing works too.
3) Please make the fics/drabbles at least 500 words long and your artwork can consist of 2 banners/5 icons.
4.)  Lastly, Have Fun!!

Here is your first prompt: 
One of your rare pair quotes from Star Wars movies, hoping to convince the other person that they are in fact a Jedi :):)

One small question - can I use the same rare pair for the duration of the challenge or is it once I write that pair, it's no longer rare to me, and I need to move on to another lucky pairing?

WOO HOO a question :):)

I think it's up to you :):) if you want to write for the same pairing for all the prompts, I say go for it, but if you want to create other rare pairs for some of the prompts, I say go for that too :):)

I'm trying to make this as stress-free as I can :):) I hope that answers your question.

It does, thanks.

Rare pairs are some of my favorite things to write, so I might branch out from time to time, but at the same time, I am intrigued by trying to write a bunch of fic for one particular rare pair (both to me and to the fandom) so we'll see where it takes me.

I really wish you wouldn’t limit the rare pairs to new pairings we haven’t written before. :-( I write Xover rare pairs and with my muse being so fickle lately I have no inspiration or interest in writing anything new.

Oh man, I wanted this challenge to be as stress free as I could make it, and my poor peeps are still finding stress! :):)

Look again, I changed the rules to a rare pair simply being rare to the writer/artist, So please, create away with your rare pair :):)

Sorry, I haven’t been on LJ for a few days. Thanks for the change. I’ll see if I can kick my muse into gear for some words.

They can be totally obscure films for 'fandoms' too, right? or a mix of 'popular' and 'obscure'? (cause I have a character from an OLD film who is insisting I put him into play...and I can wager NO ONE will know the film but me lol)
May. 9th, 2018 05:16 pm (UTC)
I love the idea of using characters from obscure films--now I'm even more intrigued :)
May. 9th, 2018 05:33 pm (UTC)
Cool :) I know just how to bring the characters together, using a collection of recent OMW prompts...but first I have to finish my class presentation.

I've got a couple things written, but they are shorter than 500 words, can I still post them?
May. 30th, 2018 01:13 pm (UTC)
Yes, definitely post them :)

This is not the drabble you're looking for
SWORDPLAY (Game of Thrones- Podrick Payne/Brienne of Tarth - 112 words)

“Must you make those sounds every time we train?” Brienne asked.

“It helps me to focus on the energy all around us, milady.”

“You should focus on trying to stay on your feet this time.”

“There is no try.”


“Do or do not. There is no try.”

With a scream of frustration, Brienne took a swing at him with her sword. Pod swung back sounding the swooshing hum characteristic of a lightsaber.

“Podrick, I am done playing.” She knocked the sword out of his hand.

Pod closed his eyes and reached his hand out as if the sword would gravitate toward it.

“For the Sevens sake, you are not a Jedi.”

Re: This is not the drabble you're looking for
Brienne is wrong, Pod's totally a Jedi :):)

Lovely work :)

Re: This is not the drabble you're looking for
Thank you! I love Pod & Brienne together- there's not enough fic about them out there, IMO. This was so much fun to write.

And I agree, if anyone on GoT was a Jedi, it'd be Pod.

    The first time Bernadette reached for his hand, it was though an announcement sounded in Howard's brain, “Ladies and gentlemen, we have contact.” It was amazing. He wanted to shout it from the…
