Our Christmas challenges are to be set on, or immediately before the big day.
Using some ideas from what folks said they'd like to see in a Christmas fic, we offer two challenges this Christmas. You can pick one, both, or if you're feeling particularly clever, find a way to combine the two without leaving out challenge elements.
No Room At The Inn
It's December 24th, in a year you've got to determine on your own. Mulder and Scully* are together on the way home for the holidays, but something comes up that throws a wrench in their plan to spend the next day with friends and/or family. And did I forget to mention that Scully's nine months pregnant? Whatever will they do?
Challenge Elements: - Place your fic after The Truth. It's now safe for Mulder and Scully to have a second baby. Why? Give at least a brief explanation as to how things have changed. - William exists. Is he with them, or not? - Give them an obstacle to overcome on their path "home" for the holidays. - Throw in a miracle of some sort. It's Christmas after all.
* Or you can use Doggett and Reyes etc instead of Mulder and Scully.
It's Christmas 2006. William is five, and Mulder and Scully are still alive, somewhere. Something strange is going on this Christmas, and the three decide to investigate. Will they solve the mystery before it's time for Christmas dinner?
Challenge Elements: - William brings the bizarre to his parents' attention. Only one parent believes him at first. Which? - Include a bird of some sort. Cooked or not is up to you. - Include a sighting of something that has, as Mulder would call it "a paranormal bouquet"
Happy Holidays everyone!
