Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

So far, looks like 2 votes for an extension.

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

Everybody liked the idea of an extension, so an extension it is!

Let's extend to the 19th of May. This provides over a week from now, and should give enough time to read and vote before June 1st. Same challenge.

Thank you all!

Just a suggestion but since you're extending the deadline anyway I tend to think that you might as well extend it up to the 25th or 26th since that still leaves five days in which to vote and set a new challenge - an ample amount of time if you ask me.

A 19th of May deadline leaves twelve days in which to vote and set a new challenge, which to my mind seems a touch excessive.

Just my opinion though.

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

That's fine with me. 26th, then ('cause the 25th is my anniversary and I might not be, erm, 100% dedicated to the contest ....).

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

A week to go.

And there seems to be much silence.

Bueller? Bueller?

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

I've started mine, I have the ending down. It's difficult to get the action down. I've never written action beyond a scene or so. I will try to finish. I thought I would have this down by now. But that's the update. Trying my best, but it's not looking good.

For some reason, I thought the contest ran until the 31st. But I'll take it ! I hope y'all enjoyed my entry; I'll have the June challenge topic up presently.

Re: April 2013 challenge - Obsessions and Addictions

Congratulations!

Well, I couldn't get the rest of the story out. I wanted to put Sisko in danger of losing Jake and dealing with the repercussions from that. The story was that Jake was taken hostage by one of the colonists on Solosos III, since it's stated that no evacuation had taken place before Sisko made the planet uninhabitable for humans (For the Uniform). Sisko is accountable for killing the man's wife by launching the torpedoes at the planet. Consequences for that decision. To be honest, I want consequences for him to just go back to being hero the next week. The story is that the man had farmed the land for 50 years as a part of a colony separate from the Maquis and wasn't even involved in the politics. This story takes place during the 5th season of DS9 (before Blaze of Glory). He sees his wife every night when he sleeps and it drives him insane with anger.

This is supposed to mirror Ben's struggle with Jennifer's death as well. I had some flashbacks planned to see when Jake was born and and when Ben was assigned to the Saratoga and asks Jennifer to come along. This would've been the tug-at-your-heartstrings over the fact that Ben feels, in losing Jake, he has lost all of what's left of Jennifer. That his decisions in the uniform--to take the posting on the Saratoga, launching the torpedoes at Solosos III--had taken what was left of his family. He confesses, and this is the razor's edge, that he knew he could and wanted to kill this man for taking Jake, something he could never do the borg, but there's some transference there. He could've, but Jake stops him, as Ben had successfully rescued him. Instead he takes him into custody as the man is a Federation citizen.

But my eyes outpaced my stomach on this story. I couldn't get it right.
