New Years Challenge 6 Months, 3 Weeks ago Karma: 88
Another challenge to commemorate the Holiday Season- the New Year's Challenge!


Similar to other challenges, this challenge will include a series of prompts which must be used according to the challenge guidelines.

BUT, this challenge has something extra: this challenge will include the first set of AWARDS Dokuga has had in a few years. Yes that's right- there will be three awards (first, second, and third place winners) for this challenge judged by various readers and authors here on Dokuga.

To participate, enter a story or artwork based on the prompts and challenge guidelines below. Once entered, all stories will be voted on during the week of January 2-9, and winners will be decided based on the votes. The winners will be announced on January 11!

You will only get one vote, so make your selection wisely!

For Writers:
You can incorporate the prompt into an existing story, or a new story, and be as creative as you want with what you write. However, in order to be considered having taken part, you will need to incorporate at least 10 of the prompt words in your story (see list below) and submit the story for the New Years challenge by 12AM EST December 31st. You can also submit 10 drabbles or unconnected oneshots for the challenge. (And, when posting your story link, please indicate its rating!)
In order to have your story entered into the challenge, you must post the story here on this thread, and make sure you indicate which prompts you used.
Any oneshot entered for this challenge must have a minimum of 1,500 words.

For Artists:
For artists who wish to participate, you must submit an original artwork created for this challenge incorporating at least five of the prompt words. Your deadline will also be the same- 12AM EST December 31st. You must post a link to the artwork here on this thread, please indicate what prompts you are using, and make sure to include a rating!

I look forward to seeing all the creative work y'all create and can't wait to see read and see them all!

A special thanks to JeniNeji whose artwork will be used to create the banners for this challenge!

Feel free to ask me any questions that may come along!

Re:New Years Challenge 6 Months ago Karma: 4
sooo back for the 2015-2016 New Year's Challenge i had actually started writing something with the intent of maybe participating, but in the end didn't finish. i thought to try and do so for 2016-2017, but didn't end up finishing then either. THIS year, however, i decided to try and finish while also using some of this New Year's Challenge's prompts AND some prompts from the December Holiday Challenge as well!!

so far i've got 15 prompts from 2015-2016, 11 prompts for 2018-2019 (though there are a couple overlapping prompts from 2015-2016 and this year's), and 12 of the December Holiday Challenge prompts! i'm actually pretty close to being done, and it will need a few edit rereads, but then it should be complete!! it's around 13,200+ words right now, and like i said, close but not yet done and will need edits so word count is gonna change some. yeah, it's long, and nothing particularly special to be honest, despite the length it's really just a short and sweet thing ^-^

it'll be the first fic i've ever finished for this pairing that's over 2k, in fact! a big deal for me

Hello,

here is my submission for your challenge.

It was also no secret that a person could hold this position only for a span of 3 seconds to one week. But what if his third former secretary hadn’t finished with the preparations for the New Year’s party and nobody knew about that? Chaos!!! (Written for the New Year's Challenge 2018)

1. Skyscraper
2. Elevator

4. Lipstick
5. Glass
6. Hat

Okay, here’s mine!

It’s my very first fic, and I’m thankful for these prompts getting me started c:

Prompts used: fireworks, frost, confetti, hat, champagne, skyscraper, stars, elevator, music, bubbles

teaandcrumpets.tumblr.com/post/181572347737/fates-reprise

EDIT BY WICCAN: Just so everyone knows, this story would be rated T here!

Edit: Oops, thanks Wiccan!

Also oh god I mostly just wanted to participate in the fun/give myself motivation to complete the chapter, but I didn’t expect there to be so few entries! I really don’t think mine is even worth being up for vote- and it’s not even properly finished finished yet.

Accidentally on Purpose
[rated: T] [modern] [meet-cute]

Kagome would have never expected that accidentally bumping into the apparent new guy in town at the supermarket would lead to a strange and addictive sort of relationship, but somehow, that’s exactly what happened. And, oddly, the only place they ever interact is at that silly little store.

this isn't really a big deal, and i hope this doesn't sound rude at all either, but i thought i'd mention it incase it confused people - and i want to check for myself ^^;

Revang and VS's choices in the poll have the titles and links reversed. so like it says, Fate's Reprise (Chapter 1) by Revang and the link for it is A New Year's Challenge by VS. and then visa versa.

i'm guessing it's the title and not the link that dictates which choice the vote goes to, but like i said, i wanted to be sure and avoid confusion XP again, i hope this didn't come off as rude!
