Leading up to the Kerths we thought it'd be fun to post challenges to get everyone writing some fun and humorous/edgy stories, plot Untwists, episode rewrites, and changing timelines.

We will be posting a couple of challenges a week. Your response can be either PG / NFIC rated (if you're going to do NFIC be sure to make a clean version too) just be sure to include the Challenge # when responding.

If you have a challenge you'd like to add to the mix just PM any of the KCOM and we'll add it in the weekly postings. smile

Fanfiction Challenge: #1

Setting: After Strange Visitor From Another Planet

Challenge: Remember that article Clark was writing about Adoptive kids? Maybe Lois picks up on the fact that Clark is adopted and maybe she offers to help him find his adoptive parents and he accepts just so he can spend time with her? What's the worst that could happen, right?
This could be fun.

Mark all responses with Fanfiction Challenge#1

Fanfiction Challenge #2:

Setting: Season One - After PML but BEFORE the Lois / Lex Wedding Arc.

Challenge: There is a new drug out on the streets of Metropolis hitting teens and gangsters and schools and is sucking the Youth out of people and making them crazy (think Lex Luthor in Seconds) Lois and Clark are assigned to cover it. The catch? The new drug is laced with a mysterious meteorite that strangely has an odd effect on Clark Kent. (Red / Green You choose)

Fanfiction Challenge # 4

Setting: Season 2: Chi of Steel Clark just returns from getting the dragon print-out from the Men's Club (You know the club Lois asked him not to go into...)

Challenge: When Clark tells Lois he ran into Superman who provided them with the image of the dragon Lois asks "What was Superman doing at a Men's Club?"
Maybe she gets on her feminism soap box...maybe there's a 'Gee Clark at least YOU didn't go in the club. Thanks for having my back partner...'

How does Clark respond?

Fanfiction Challenge # 5

Setting: Season 3: Never on Sunday

Challenge: There's been a lot of discussion on how bad this plot is so here's the challenge. No Voo Doo. No Baron Sunday is some raised from the dead guy. Rewrite the episode and keep the B-Plot with the wedding planning but replace the A-Plot with something more Lois and Clark style.

Fanfiction Challenge #6:

Setting: The Pheonix

Challenge: Lex was never brought down in BAP, HOL or Madame Ex. Lois has been CASUALLY seeing Lex while dealing with Metropolils bad guys and slowly getting closer to Clark (same as cannon). In the Pheonix timeline Lex decides to pop the question at the same time Clark has worked up the nerve to ask Lois out. How does it go down?

Could you imagine if S1 cliffhanger happened in S2 and you showed the back and forth between CK and LL and Lex there when CK isn't?

Weekly Challenge #13

Inspiration in Song. Ever hear a song that triggers a story for you? This week's challenges are all based on lyrics from a song.

Challenge: Write a story based on the song.

Song: Shattered by OAR

Quote:
In a way, I need a change
From this burnout scene
Another time, another town, another everything
But it's always back to you
Stumble out in the night
From the pouring rain
Made the block, sat and thought
There's more I need
It's always back to you

But I'm good without ya
Yeah I'm good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break til I shatter?
Over the line, can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break; let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time
But I'm shattered
I always turn the car around

I had no idea that the night
Would take so damn long
Took it out, on the street
While the rain still falls
Push me back to you

But I'm good without ya
Yeah I'm good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break til I shatter?
Over the line, can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break; let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time
But I'm shattered
I always turn the car around

Give it up, give it up Baby
Give it up, give it up now, now

How many times can I break til I shatter?
Over the line, can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
All that I feel is the realness I'm faking
Taking my time
But it's time that I'm wasting
I always turn the car around

How many times can I break til I shatter?
Over the line, can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
Don't wanna turn that car around
I gotta turn this thing around

Challenge: Write a story based on the song.

Song: Let Me Be Myself - 3 Doors Down

Quote:
I guess i just got lost
Bein' someone else
I tried to kill the pain
Nothin ever helped
I left myself behind
Somewhere along the way
Hopin to come back around
To find myself someday

Lately i'm so tired of waiting for you
To say that it's ok, but tell me
Please, would you one time
Just let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself
Would you let me be myself

I'll never find my heart
Behind someone else
I'll never see the light of day
Living in this cell
It's time to make my way
Into the world i knew
Take back all of these times
That i gave in to you

Lately i'm so tired of waiting for you
To say that it's ok, but tell me
Please, would you one time
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
And let me be myself
For a while, if you don't mind
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself

That's all i've ever wanted from this world
Is to let me be me

Please would you one time
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself
Please would you one time
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself
For a while, if you don't mind
Let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself
Would you one time... oooh
Let me be myself
Let me be me

Challenge: Write a story based on the song.

Song: Animal I Have Become - 3 Days Grace

Quote:
I can't escape this hell
So many times I've tried
But I'm still caged inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can't control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal, this animal)

I can't escape myself
(I can't escape myself)
So many times I've lied
(So many times I've lied)
But there's still rage inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can't control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal

Somebody help me through this nightmare
I can't control myself
Somebody wake me from this nightmare
I can't escape this hell

(This animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal)

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal I have become)
