I know, school is out and we're not in a class, but sometimes we do review here.  Periodically I like to post the profile info for Section VII for everyone's benefit.  We've had a number of new members added both here and on Dreamwidth, and sometimes the original mission gets left behind as we write and grow.  Not that we're in violation of anything, this is not aimed at anyone so don't panic.

It's Short Affair Day! This challenge is ideal for those of you who want to write something brief, and for those who want the challenge of writing something which is shorter than their usual stories. The prompts who need for next week are below the cut.

To join in with today's postings simply follow this link for the prompts you'll need.

Remember, Section VII is a Gen site, but stories which are Het, Long-term Romance or AU can be posted in [livejournal.com profile] mfu_map_room.

Posting directly to Section VII is still fine but, if you wish, you can post your story elsewhere and provide a link. Please say where the link leads as a lot of people are unwilling to go to certain sites. Don't forget, Section VII and the Map Room are both available on Dreamwidth, for those of you who can figure it out (Just let us know if you posted there).


Have fun.

The Unified Northern Casualty and Liability Exchange proudly presents The Great Episode Challenge.

This monthly challenge includes two prompts drawn from a single episode, allowing you to explore unresolved scenes, unanswered questions, and uncertain motivations.

And now for tonight's program.

In New York City, on a street in the East Forties, there’s an ordinary tailor shop. Or is it ordinary?

Episode: The Summit Five Affair (S4E1)

So... I'm looking at our Section VII Calendar which you can find HERE, and it says that today is Open Posting for the Great Episode Challenge.
That means if you have a story you never posted, or never wrote until now, you can post it today under that heading
It's a technicality really, because you can always post a story, challenge or non-challenge, any day of the week.  We prefer that you keep it within the days reserved for a particular challenge, but sometimes things just don't work out that way.
Having said all of that, Thursdays this summer are actually open posting for everything, so whatever little bits and drabbles you have stuck inside your box, or computer, post them and let's see what that looks like.
You know, the Beatles' Abbey Road album side 2 was mostly bits and drabbles, and that worked out really great.

We're discussing a big challenge to commemorate the last season of MFU, and the ending our writers would give it to replace the void of cancellation.
You can view, vote and discuss HERE
And, feel free to ask questions or make comments on this thread.
To re-cap the proposed challenge:
The 50 Years After Affair or, How Would You Write The Final Episode Challenge... cheeky ;)
All Genres
5000 word minimum (we aren't legalistic, so if you're missing a few words don't sweat it)
Post on AO3
The date is up in the air, but after New Years seems to be edging out the October date.  Chime in, please.  And remember, our guys are stuck in the 7 Wonders of the World affair if you don't set them free with a new ending.


Also, don't forget the Summer of MFU Challenge is posting on AO3 under The Summer Affair This is a fun exercise in getting the men from UNCLE into swim trunks, surfing or whatever speaks summer to you.  You can post at the site through the end of August.

 We're talking about the last episode of the series, and a new challenge to re-write history. You can find it and vote HERE 
7 wonders of the world
[identity profile] glennagirl.livejournal.com
So, 50 years ago the Man from U.N.C.L.E.  was heading into it's fourth and final season.  We all have varying opinions about how that all happened, and whether or not we can find episodes in the last season that felt like the MFU we loved in the first three years.
My hope is to run a challenge resembling the Mini Bang we had for the 50th Anniversary of the first season, only this one would be your opportunity to write the last episode; to replace the vacuum of cancellation with a proper end for our team at UNCLE Headquarters.  All genres, any setting... What do you think happened to UNCLE?[Poll #2069726]

Wow! We're halfway through the year already!. There have been many wonderful 'Short Affairs' written this year, so how about some more?

The prompts you'll need, for stories due on July 3rd, are below the cut; along with the rules. As the postings are due the day before Independence Day, please feel free to use that as a theme.

Thanks to everyone who joined in the discussion yesterday on evolving values and attitudes.  I'm saying that's what it was, but you can check it out HERE The topic centers on Robert Vaughn and some comments he made, but I think the general concensus makes for interesting reading.  And for the record, I am going to say I play a Devil's Advocate role here ;)

The ABC Affair keeps on churning out good stories, and I'm still trying to catch up.  If you haven't joined in on this one yet, you can absolutely do so by starting from the beginning or jumping in where we are currently.  There are no real rules here.

We're going to be seeing challenges take a break for the summer, but that doesn't mean inactivity.  We'll be doing some impromptu challenges, and of course it's a time for you to catch up on stories you intended to write but never got around to finishing.  I have several of those myself.  Choose any of the tags and peruse the prompts, see if something clicks for you.

I'm still importing daily to Dreamwidth, and I'm guessing we've amped up the entries on AO3 by quite a bit with our new policy of posting links rather than complete stories here on LJ.  That's what happened on ff.net when the stories started pouring out of Section VII during our first year.  The number of MFU stories doubled, and most of that was due to the postings from writers who had responded to challenges.  Kudos to everyone who has been keeping this fandom active with your fiction and love of Solo and Kuryakin.

Now, let me throw out a couple of ideas.  First one: I'd love to see a video challenge.  I realize that is a limited group who do such things, and it doesn't include me.  But I do think it would be fun, and I have a song that I'd like to use as the prompt.  All I need are some videographers, or whatever we should call people who can do this amazing craft.[livejournal.com profile] vysila and
[livejournal.com profile] bluemeanybeany are two that I can think of at the moment.  Anyway, that's on my wish list.

Second, I've discussed this with [livejournal.com profile] mrua7 and she doesn't think I'm crazy.  The 1967 television season was the fourth and final season of MFU.  The last episodes, The Seven Wonders of the World Affair (two parter), aired on January 8 & 15 of 1968.  For me, that makes the last season within the 1967 time frame, which means we're in another 50 Year Anniversary.  I was thinking that we might do another big challenge, similar to the 50th Anniversary Big Bang, for which we write another ending to the show.  It would need to be a minimum of 5000 words, with illustrations included per the author's choice.
What do you think?  I'm open to comments and suggestion, but I think this has potential.  It would be a longer term challenge, say three months to finish it and post before the holidays begin.
Comment below.

I don't know what it's like where you are, but the temp is already 21c (about 70f) here and it is only 8:40 in the morning. (I know it's hotter elsewhere, but we aren't used to heat here). It's the sort of day we would like to see our boys in swimwear, just so long as Napoleon doesn't wear that hideous two piece from 'Master's Touch'. Anyway, the prompts you'll need, for stories due on June 26th, are below the cut; along with the rules.

Just a reminder that posting for LIFECYCLE: Awakening Challenge is now open on [livejournal.com profile] section7mfu.

Please be sure and give your post a subject reflective of the challenge (including a title for the story itself). Do use the lifecycle tag to identify your story. As a courtesy, please remember to place the majority of your story under a cut.

Posting for the challenge will remain open through next Saturday, June 24th.

With my current schedule, I was not able to compose something for this particular challenge myself, but I look forward to reading the stories.

I don't know about the rest of you, but at the moment I have a slight hitch in my writing mojo.  It's not that I don't want to write, but time and other responsibilities are holding me hostage.  Okay, that's a little dramatic, but honestly, when I arrive at the point in the day when I have some time to write, my brain just doesn't have much left to put into tripping the light fantastic with Solo and Kuryakin.
So...
I'm wondering if we might do a little something that will give even the most slothful of us a chance to be involved in a challenge but a quick and easy one that shouldn't bite into anything else, challenge wise.  Just a little daily exercise to keep us writing, even if only a little.
Here's what I'm thinking...
After the fashion of our short_affair challenge, we will have a simple prompt from which you can write a sentence, a paragraph or drabble.  Short and sweet, and truly an exercise in editing.  Choose your words wisely and convey something for us to grasp easily.
The prompts will be the letters of the alphabet, so this is a 26 day challenge and we will start tomorrow.  This is in addition to A Little Drabble Do Ya, so don't skip out on that one.
Ready? Let's see what happens when we utilize the simplest of prompts for the shortest of stories.  We shall call it The ABC Affair, and the letter of the day will be the first letter for the first word in your first sentence.
Use abc affair tag, keep it gen and keep it short.
