Challenge 6: Harlequin Romance!
We don't know about you, but with season three over, we're feeling a bit... low. So! We decided the very best fix for our condition was to read and write some happy, feel-good fic. In short, we're talking HARLEQUIN ROMANCE done Torchwood style! You know the drill. We want stories full of improbable slap-stick comedy, bizarre misunderstandings, ridiculous romance cliches, life-affirming sex, meeting the family in embarrassing ways, and our personal favourite, passionate smooches in the archives that the whole team accidentally sees on CCTV. Or maybe you'd prefer to go AU, and explore the possibilities of business tycoons and outspoken secretaries, or secret agents and the femme/homme fatale they must protect, or cowboys in love, or accidental pregnancies, or... You get the picture.
You can do it, people. We have faith.
If you choose to accept this mission, you can of course make up your own Harlequin Romance plot. But if you need a little help, there are many inspiring blurbs available from these locations:
You have two weeks to thrill us with the passion of romance! This challenge will close Sunday 9th August.
