I hope you had a good break, everyone. The Amnesty is now over, and it's back to business as usual!

Challenge 16: 60 Minutes



This fortnight's prompt is something I've always wanted to have a go at: writing a story within a time limit, in this case sixty minutes. Bang it out as fast as you can! It's the ultimate flashfic.

But assuming that doesn't appeal to you, there's also the option of writing about sixty minutes. Is there a sixty minute alien invasion? Is it the countdown on the bomb or the length of the timeloop? Or perhaps how long Jack has to wait for his morning coffee... or some stopwatch antics?

Maybe you want to spin it another way, by remixing Gone in Sixty Seconds (it takes longer to hijack spaceships :) or Nick of Time, or having Torchwood go public and appearing on 60 Minutes.

Think outside the box and as timey-wimey as you please!

The clock is now officially ticking -- the 60 Minutes challenge will close in two weeks, on Sunday 24th January.

You can stop making New Year's resolutions now -- the vows challenge is closed.

You can find the entries by clicking the challenge:vows tag.


Challenge 15: Amnesty



It's that time of year, when things are crazy and we look back at all our half-finished projects and despair. So rather than a new challenge this fortnight, you are welcome to finish off stories for any of the challenges we've run this year. Look at the tags to jog your memory.

The Amnesty will close in two weeks, on Sunday 10th January.

Happy New Year!

You can shake off that shiver going down your spine now -- the Omens challenge is over.

Challenge 14: Vows



Okay, I'm woman enough to admit it. I kind of want wedding fic. I have all these burning questions I want answered: What happened in the lead up to Gwen and Rhys's wedding, and was there any Torchwood excitement on their honeymoon? What exactly happened in that timeloop Jack and John were stuck in (and how many times did they say, "I do"?). And how did Ianto pop the question to Jack and Martha? ;)

But maybe you don't share my yen for wedding stories. Maybe you want to write about vows of vengeance -- Owen after one too many decaf coffees perhaps -- or oaths of allegiance -- what exactly did Tosh agree to when Jack rescued her from UNIT? There are so many possibilities; interpret the prompt as you will!

The Vows challenge will close in two weeks, on Sunday 20th December.

Class is out, and the School challenge is done. Sadly, the schoolyard was deserted this fortnight, and no one had a go on the swings.

You can't find any stories by clicking the challenge:school tag. :(


Challenge 13: Omens


Wow! We're up to the thirteenth challenge already, and although we've zoomed past Halloween, there's always room for a few more ominous stories, filled with portents, signs and other omens of good or ill. Am I right, or am I right?

Maybe you want to explore exactly what kind of psi training Torchwood One gave its operatives, and exactly how Ianto knows so much about everything. Or maybe Tosh's latest gadget has got more functions than meets the eye -- the third eye, that is. What about Gwen and her family's history with the Sight? Does Gwen have a touch of it herself, or does her child? Then there's Owen, who would be extremely pissed off the day he started channelling messages from the other side. Or perhaps Jack has another encounter with the fairies.

The possibilities are spine-tingling, so get out your scrying pools and crystal balls and start predicting the dire or desirous futures -- or pasts, or multiverses -- awaiting the team.

The Omens challenge will close in two weeks, on Sunday 7th December.

Time to finish up the filing and tidy the Archives, people. The Documents challenge is now signed, sealed and delivered. Thanks to those who played.

You can find the stories by clicking the challenge:documents tag.


Challenge 12: School



I hardly feel the need to sell this challenge to you, as school AUs are a staple of fandom, after all. But there is so much more scope to a School Challenge than the good old high school cliche!

Maybe the team go on a training exercise with U.N.I.T., or vice versa. Perhaps Jack and Ianto embark on an intense sexual course of discovery (Mmmm, yes please). Maybe Tosh moonlights as a science tutor in her rare time off, or Gwen is taking a cooking class so she can surprise Rhys with a romantic dinner. Or maybe Owen is a secret Rugby Coach on the weekends... What? Stranger things could happen on the Rift!

So put your thinking caps on and ponder all the possible variations on learning, education and classrooms.

The School challenge will close in two weeks, on Sunday 22nd November.

Time to unpack your suitcases and do the laundry, everyone. The Journeys challenge is now officially closed. Thanks to those who played.

You can find the stories by clicking the challenge:journeys tag.


Challenge 11: Documents



First an apology for the unexpected hiatus! The mods had such a smashing time on our Whoniverse adventure that it's taken a bit of time to come down from the heady heights and resume our day-to-day lives. But we're back now, and ready to get stuck into flashing you fortnightly. With new challenges, that is. :)

This fortnight, we're going with 'Documents,' which you can interpret any way you please. There are so many possibilities: emails between the team, official correspondence from the Crown, bank balances and the Torchwood accounts, or perhaps that delightful favourite -- cross-time letters between Jack and Ianto, a la The Lake House. *happy sigh*

Or perhaps you'll explore the wrinkles of Jack's Time Agency contract, or the ins and outs of the Shadow Proclamation, or some of the oddities in the Archives. Or maybe the TARDIS operating manual falls through the Rift, and the race is on to limit the damage to the timestream if it falls into the wrong hands.

Have at it, people. Any document, any time, any topic! Let your imaginations and photoshopping skills run free!

The Documents challenge will close in two weeks, on Sunday 8th November.

It's time to wash up the spatulas and put away the dirty linen. The Domesticity challenge is now closed. Thanks to those who played.

Challenge 10: Journeys



We realise that this fortnight's challenge is a little... delayed. That's because the mods are currently on a whirlwind tour of all things Who-related. And so it seems appropriate for the new challenge to be about what happens when people step outside their door, and end up somewhere unexpected.

Despite the fanon of Team Torchwood being "married to the Hub", travel in all planes and directions is an integral part of the Whoniverse. The possibilities are practically endless... New planets! Spaceships! Timetravel! British Rail!

This fortnight, let your imaginations roam to the ends of the universe in fantastic voyages and madcap adventures.

The Journeys challenge will close in two weeks, on Wednesday 7th October.
