Weekend dance anybody? It's a lot like the Snoopy dance, only happier. :)

For our weekend challenge this week, I'm dusting off and adding an angle to a challenge that worked pretty well over the winter. Here's how it'll go....




TheaterPicGive me three numbers from one to twenty. I'll send you back three prompts: One of the top 100 movies of all time, a song lyric from my spotify queues, and a quote about moonlight.

About the movie: Don't feel you have to pick a smaller number to get a better movie - I've got a system to randomize it, so your movie could come from anywhere in the list. And, of course, don't feel you have to write your story precisely along the plot line - maybe something about a quote from it will inspire you, or maybe a specific scene or the mood or tone of it. I seem to recall some lovely crack!fic evolving last time. :)

For every story written to the challenge and posted before Monday AM here, I'll write a fic up to a thousand words or so. Include with your post a fandom you'd like me to write to, please, and any prompt you might like or whether I should go free form.

Good luck! Hope this brings you words!
