Same title different story

This challenge has ended!

1st step: Post a ficly, any ficly, one that you just wrote or one that you wrote five years ago in a fit of artistic inspiration and at the end of the title write, “Version 1”

2nd step: Look at the titles of the other entries in the challenge. Write a ficly with the same title as one of the other entries but a new take on the theme. (This means you need to read the other entries, not just pick a title)

3rd step: Before posting your entry write the number of the version you are on, “Version 2, Version 5, and so on”.

You are allowed to post multiple versions of the same title. In fact, extra credit to those who do :)

    Great job everyone! We had some really creative alternate interpretations to the titles. Thank you to everyone who participated.

    …amused at the uncertainty over the challenge rules. Don’t panic everyone, you’re doing fine.

    @ Abstract. You’re doing just fine.

    Am I doing it right? In retrospect I’m not sure I am.

  5. Avatar Schmendrick

    This is a really cool idea :)

    You may use any of the titles of the pieces that have already been entered. At this point your options are, Love is watching someone die or Arabesque, Suggest, Acquiesce. If more people enter then you will have more titles to choose from.

    If I’m understanding the challenge correctly, I’ll leave some time and come back to pick another title to use that title for a new story.

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