Fortnightly Theme Word Challenge #4
FORTNIGHTLY THEME WORD CHALLENGE #4(18/05/2013-01/06/2013): FIXATION
This is a challenge being held on the site's Facebook group, also called Destiny's Gateway. Even if you're not a member there, you can still write for this challenge and post here on the site. :)
I have decided to change the weekly challenge to every two weeks, to give us all more time to write. With work or school and real life getting in the way, and only being able to write maybe on the weekends, this makes it a lot more fair. It will also give us a chance to write/post our other Fanfiction at the same time, without having to only do the challenge one. :) If you've never written a Fanfic before or are just knew to it, please give this a try. We'll be very supportive and help you if you need it! Don't worry, we all have to start out somewhere and we'll never judge you or be critical. We have actually drawn together a very friendly, supportive bunch of people here and I'm proud of the Facebook group and site for that!
For those who aren't very familiar with the word, the dictionary defines Fixation as the following: 'An often obsessive preoccupation with an object or a person.' In other words, it could be an obsession, or a need to look at or touch, a person...or part of a person. Lips, for example *Smirk* Or it could just be an object.
I am most definitely writing for this one!
1. Use the theme word to write a story. (It does not have to be the entire story, so long as the theme is an element in at least some of it, no matter how small.)
2. It has to be at least 1000 words.
3. You have two weeks to post your response. It needs to be posted on the Group here and one of my sites, by the 30th of April. (Feel free to post it anywhere else you like. It's your story! But it's only polite to post it one of our group's sites too.)

Destiny's Publications: http://destinyspublications.com/
4. If your story ends up quite large, the One Hour Challenge rule applies. Meaning that only the FIRST chapter need be your Theme entry and is to be posted within that those two weeks, and you can take your time posting the remaining chapters.
5. Any size!
6. Any rating.
7. Any fandom or couple (Or your original pairings or plot). Just remember, to post this on DGRFA, it DOES need to be a romance and based around a pairing. On DPA, it doesn't need to be about a pairing and can be any genre, not just romance. write a horror if you like!
8. To make it interesting, you can add in any One Hour Challenges that you like also. Limit is two. http://destinysgateway.com/One%20Hour%20Challenges%20Master%20List.htm
9. You do NOT need to be an Author to write for this theme challenge. This could be your very first attempt at writing and we'd love it and support you. If you've always wanted to write a Fanfic or something original, this is a great way to start. We'll be happy to help you out with whatever you need. Just give it a try. Ask us any questions if you get stuck. You'll find writing is really fun!
10. Please spell check the Fanfic before posting and separate your paragraphs/sentences, so it's not in all one block on the page. I know that most people do this, but I've also seem some pretty shocking submissions to the site. LOL
11: Try to use this template when posting your story. You can change it a little if you like. I've altered it over the years so that it shows the maximum amount of info about your story, for your readers:
Site URL: (Optional)
Couple: (Not applicable if you're writing an original story)
Category: (Original Works or Fanfic)
Status: (Completed or Unfinished)
Size: ? KB
I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with. If you have any questions, or more rule suggestions that I didn't think of, please respond to this thread.
