So who's up for a fanfiction challenge? I give you all a theme, you all write a SoaP fic pertaining in some way, shape or form to said theme. The fic can be any length whatsoever. We'll start out with a really easy, blanket theme and work up to more difficult ones later, methinks. Just write the word "challenge" somewhere in the subject line when you post your challenge piece.
Theme for challenge: love
Deadline: to be announced
Now go sharpen your pencils and set out a mouse or two for those snake muses. Or a passenger, if your snake muse is larger and likes to have bigger meals.
