A combination of suggestions from kickinpants and joyeuxnoel
Hero: n 1: a man distinguished by exceptional courage and nobility and strength; 2: the principle character in a play or movie or novel or poem 3: someone who fights for a cause.
Almost every story has a hero, so let’s do a story about them. What happens when you realize your hero is fallible? What’s the daily trials of being someone’s hero? What makes a hero? Who are some of the unsung heroes?
Whatever your story is about, focus on the hero.
The catch (because this is temps_mort and there is always a catch)? Your story has to be in the second person.
You have 60 minutes.
Second Challenge: Grocery list fic.
No, that doesn't mean you have to make your favorite fellows run out to buy fresh produce, but it does mean that you have to write a fic including the following:
-4 boys/men OR 4 girls/women (not necessarily all in one sexual relationship, but all playing an important role)
-3 red objects.
-2 instances of striking fashion taste (ie, "Duo dressed like a lunatic," "Tezuka wore a lovely pink ruffled tutu," or "Sesshoumaru walked naked down the street.")
-1 anime cliché/in-joke or mention of anime/manga series (Hikaru was reading a Gundam Wing Doujinshi; Miaka! Tamahome! Miaka! Tamahome!; Ranma face-faulted.)
You have 45 minutes.
