Attention All of Ficlyland: Celebrate Your Milestones

This challenge has ended!

I was reminiscing recently, not about anything in particular, but about the act of reminiscing itself. It’s kind of like why monuments are built. They’re there to inhabit the world, there to be revisited as one would a fond or significant memory. They’re simply, actually, there. To represent what we accomplish is an essential, primitive, distinctly human trait. And as I’m noticing, lately, all of you Ficleteers turned Ficlyteers have not continued this trend.

Anyone remember the titles that used to scroll down that proudly hollered ‘100th COMMENT CHALLENGE!!’ ? My friends, I miss these celebrations, so I’m bringing them back.

Your challenge is to create a challenge when you reach your next personal milestone— such as 50 stories or 50 comments, etc. These mementos should be preserved and observed by the community, methinks.

Now, to fill this challenge with submissions, please pick two of your best, most comment neglected, forgotten stories or poems, and put ’em right here. May the best one win.

    Since I won this (which causes squeal-heavy <3) I am proud to post that I have finally done the first part of this challenge, and having hit 200 comments have created a challenge:

    I just reached 1000 comments! Not quiet worthy of a ficly but I’m pretty proud of myself! =) I’ll try and think of something to contribute, milestones are so important.

    No harm done by editing and sequeling. I meant to include that it’s ok to do that in the challenge guidelines.

    but I cheated and edited them or wrote sequels )=

    And it’s totally ok to edit your long lost ficlies before submitting them. I encourage it. There’s so much to gain from the editing process.

    Thanks Lighty. I hope you’ll join the fun.

    I suggest copying and pasting your old ficlys here and then rewriting the titles + tags. Log in to Ficly. Then open a new tab or a new window and log in to ficly again. On one tab find this challenge and click ‘participate’. Then go to your other tab and search your stories. When you find a forgotten gem, copy it, open the other tab, and paste it there to submit to this challenge. Then repeat :)

    I like this challenge, there’s been a little upsurge of “get your butts back in gear” challenges, blogs, etc recently, and I think it’s a really good idea. Ficly is too good to let to go to waste^^

    Also… how does one put already posted stories into a challenge? If that was what was being suggested . =)

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
