I am in charge of the Weekend Challenge in this last beautiful weekend in May which is a three day Memorial Day weekend for my fellow Americans :):) and I decided we needed prompts inspired by girl detectives--WOO HOO!!

I chose these awesome lines from the greatest girl detectives out there:  Nancy Drew, Susan Sand, Veronica Mars, Joan Watson, Miss Marple and Dame Frevisse.  (And yes Miss Marple, Joan Watson and Sister Frevisse aren’t technically girls, but they were once, so it still counts—in the world of detective fiction of course )

Choose a number between 1 and 25 and I will give you an epically badass yet girly line that I hope inspires you.

Please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you.  Just post your work by Thursday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

You got it, and it's my favorite Veronica Mars quote:

“They gave me a choice. I could stand by my dad, or stand by Duncan and my dead best friend's family. I chose Dad. It's a decision I live with every day. And you want to know the kicker? I don't even know what's true anymore. Maybe everyone else is right. Maybe Dad screwed up the investigation. Maybe I gave up my circle of friends - my life - over an error in Dad's judgment.”

Good luck :):)

Veronica Mars was a great show--it only lasted three seasons but it's totally worth watching. And the father/daughter Mars duo for the win:):)

And an awesome Veronica Mars quote--WOO HOO!!

“Check you out, Veronica Mars. You're like a rocker chick now. You and I, we'd have a lot of fun together. Yeah, if, um, if I wasn't dead and stuff.”

Good luck :):)

I hope this inspires:

“Check you out, Veronica Mars. You're like a rocker chick now. You and I, we'd have a lot of fun together. Yeah, if, um, if I wasn't dead and stuff.”

Good luck :):)

Oooh... I have the perfect (female) detective for that quote, too. TWO of them actually. Hmm... might even work as my rare pair since I almost never write the two of them together on their own (they're usually keeping the boys from murdering each other).

Ah, no biggie. I watched the first season of the show when it originally aired not realizing it had been based on a series of novels and then proceeded to binge read the books. I'm kind of obsessed with Jane, Maura, and Gabriel. :D

This is the greatest Nancy Drew quote--EVER!!

“There's only one thing left to do. I’m glad I wore pants."

Good luck :):)

Could I try 8 and 21 please?

Not a prob :):)

This is an awesome Nancy Drew quote: “Spend time at the gym to build upper body strength. Detective work may require fending off a vicious hair pulling."

This Susan Sand quote gives me shivers: As she began to get closer to the answers, the thought of being alone in this was becoming more and more terrifying.


Good luck :):)

You may :)

First, a classic Joan Watson line: “And you brought him here to help you make sense of the equations you found in the victim's house. I get that. What I don't get, is why he isn't wearing a shirt.”


Second, from Veronica Mars: “There's a woman who saw my mom get out of her car and get in a van with a 'mysterious stranger."


Good luck :)
