In the spirit of the season, I've determined the October writing challenge. How many of us as children were told, "Don't Trick or Treat alone"? It's dangerous! Anything could happen to you! Just...don't...do...it! I'd like to see how well we writers work together, so pick a buddy and make a collaboration! It should be a previously unpublished work, not taken from role play or any round robin you may be involved in, and it must be a genuine collaboration between two writers. (In other words more than just, "Hey, can I borrow your characters?") How you decide to do that is up to you. One person can conceptualize and the other write, both can write part of it, etc. Pick one person to work with, so no double submissions with different partners. Because this could be fairly challenging, I'm giving you a generous word limit of 7000 words. You may choose canon characters, AU characters, or characters of your own creation. You may pick any genre. Just be sure it ties into Star Trek somehow. Post a link to your story in this thread when you're done. Good luck, and may the best team win!
