Well, I went to my first professional NHL game yesterday. Alayna is a fairly big fan of the Capitals, and she got tickets for a double date with her brother and his girlfriend as a Christmas present for all of us. It was fun, the Caps won by one and the game was fairly exciting as a whole. I hope that all of you enjoyed Alayna’s post yesterday. I’ll be posting one of my own this coming Sunday. However, until then I have a story challenge, and it’s time for my favorite story challenge. I’m going to give you a series of criteria including genre, theme, some character archtypes, etc. Your job is to write a story that includes all of the features required in the challenge. If you intend to post it here, please keep it short. However, the complexity of this challenge often requires a longer story.

Theme: Romance

Genre: Modern Fiction, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction

Setting: Your choice of general genre, but this should be a romantic setting of some kind (a wedding, a date, etc.)

Character Archetypes:

1) The Lover (male partner)

2) The Beloved (female partner)

3) A Drunk Clown (or village idiot, etc)

4) A Lost or Abandoned Child


1) A Cord of Silken Rope

2) A ‘Skeleton Key’ (this could be a hacker’s tool, a wand that can open any lock, etc)

3) A Torch
