To wit, an open challenge is one that is issued without a specific deadline, and therefore is ongoing from the day it is issued and until the zombie apocalypse results in the inevitable loss of our brain tissue/gizzards/limbs/electronic devices. Anyone can submit a response to an open challenge at any given time.
If you write a fic in response to one of these challenges, be sure to post a link to your response in the challenge's respective thread.
If you issue an open challenge:
1. Create a thread for it.
2. Post a link to your challenge's thread here, as a reply to this post.
