YOU STILL HAVE TIME!

Ok, people are wondering just how much time they have left to submit their fics.

Here's the thing, it's already Sept 1 here in Aussie-land. It's 8am. I start work at 9am. I will probably post all the entries late tonight my time, so they should be ready for you all in the States etc when you get up tomorrow morning.

So, if you miss midnight by a couple of hours, it doesn't really matter. (As long as you let me know to wait).

Basically, you have about 12 more hours. Good luck!

STOP

Title: Stop
Written By: etharei
Timeline: Between 304 and 305
Rating: R
Warnings: slightly spoilerish for up to 304
Summary: A most unusual birthday, at a time when you should have been miserable and lonely. Second-person POV, Brian Kinney.
Author Notes: I took some liberties with the timeline, particularly concerning Brian’s birthday. I also made the assumption that St. James Academy had a Middle School. Completely unbeta’ed, so all mistakes are mine alone.

Rating: R (For language mostly…lame, I know, but I can’t write porn. Sorry.)

Author Notes: It helps to have a general knowledge of the original The Little Prince to appreciate this, but it’s not really necessary. Go check out Wikipedia, ‘tis your friend!

FICS UNVEILED!

Dare fics have now been posted! We had a whopping 36 entries submitted! *faints*

A big thank you to all the writer's who signed up, even those who had to pull out.

Thanks also to the many people who have offered help and encouragement in a non-writing capacity!

It's been a blast for me, and we have some wonderful new fic to enjoy!

And because I loved it so much, I'm going to make it permanent. I have set up qaf_challenges, a fic writing community, where I will post ongoing challenges.

I encourage everyone to sign up, as I will be posting the first challenge over there shortly.

Dare fics will remain anonymous for 10 days, giving readers time to guess who wrote what. I ask that the writers don't respond to their comments or cross post their fics until the 10 days are up.

The fics are posted in random order. Happy guessing!

To aid in your guessing, here's the list of writers who took part!
