*Write a story with
this title - "Close Your Eyes and Think of Cardassia".
*Like all good little
Cardassians, Garak was married off when young to a bride selected by his
family (in his case, by Tain). Now he wants a divorce, and to that end
his wife has arrived on the station. What happens when she gets there?
something new, something borrowed, something blue...doesn't necessarily
mean a wedding!
*Write a G/B story
where they are so physically incompatible that it is impossible for them
to have intercourse. I know this will take some imagination, but I know
we can all do this! (Personally, I'm hoping for happy endings, here, but
do with it as your muse dictates...)
From Heather (yes,
lil' old me...):
*Write a dialogue
only scene to go with this image.
*Write a story using
any combination of three characters from the regular universe and the mirror
universe; ex - Garak/Bashir/AU Bashir.
*Write a story in
which the words "I love you" are never uttered -- in other words, just
sex, no emotional strings.
*Write a story with
an odd twist...character death counts, but I'd prefer something like an
odd kink, or an unexpected situation.
*Write a Mary Sue
in which you are on DS9 but as YOU! And it has to be realistic. No wild
sex, no instant status. What would REALLY happen if you REALLY met Garak?
How much of an ass would you look like?
From Fred (obsessed Wesley lover):
*I don't usually post my stuff on ASCEM,
but all the neat stuff I been seeing on Heather the Babe-a-licious and
Robin the Raunchies pages have got me thinkin'...why not have a challenge
which involves a singles bar, your fave Trek character (you know who I
would choose, heh heh), and the lamest pick up attempt you can think of.
Come on people--it's easy! Think Riker in gold chains and funky ass colongne!
Anyone who writes about Wesley's ass in any way, shape, or form gets a
golden woody from yers truly.
*Choose a piece of music that inspires
you, and write a story from it.
From Diana (who gives such lovely
site feedback - thanks dear!):
*Let's face it, what decent person is
going to want to date a house-less bastard who is the premiere tourturer
for the State Secret Police? I also think Garak would abstain rather than
repeat Tain's mistake or cater to fawning sycophants. Consequently, for
all his galactic experience, there's a good chance that he's a lot more
sexually insecure than Julian. So, the challenge is this: Write a G/B story
where Garak is having problems because he is actually less sexually experienced
than his prospective partner.
From the Plaid Adder:
*Othello. Whaddaya think? Bashir as Desdemona,
Garak as Othello, pre-dementia Gul Dukat as Iago, O'Brien as Cassio, Kira
as Emilia...of course, you might want to change the ending some, but people
did that to Shakespeare all the time in the nineteenth century...
* Along those lines, I have a poetry challenge.
Complete a poem from Garak to Bashir that includes the lines:
"One look at that cute ass o' ya,
And I forget Cardassia..."
*What if a bunch of different Mary Sues
showed up in the canon universe at the same time? Would they end up fighting
over Garak and/or Bashir, or sharing them, or would they just eliminate
the middleman and start
doin' it for each other? Imagine
*Write a Mary Sue in which Garak and/or
Bashir (plus other DS9 characters, if you're so inclined) appear in OUR
universe. As Jen said, make it realistic (at least, as realistic as possible
under the circumstances.) No hot monkey sex, no beaming back to DS9 with
them because you've become their best buddy ever, etc. How would they react
to you and our world?
*Write a G/B story that somehow includes...Sam
Malone from "Cheers".
