Re: Nick Fic Song Challenge Thread #2- Ch #18-"What It's Like" Thanks for picking a number, Kelli! But.... :scream: ....a 50/50 chance and my song STILL ends up last choice! :lol: Ah well...next time. It's time for Round 19 of the Nick Fic Song Challenge! Remember, everyone reading the thread is welcome to submit a story! And now the guidelines...PLEASE read them all carefully! If you have any questions, let me know here or via PM/email. Thanks! 1. Word limit on the fic is 2,500. Please remember to give the fic a title and a short summary (neither are counted in the word limit). 2. The only restrictions on the content of the fic are that Nick must be the main character and that the story must be based on the song lyrics (below). You can base your fic on the idea of the song, whole or in part, use some of the lyrics...whatever you want as long as the song is your inspiration. The fics will be presented later by way of a link, so there are no worries about mature content. 3. Please do not post your fic or any links here! Send your fic to me at the email in my profile (or you can PM it to me if it's short enough). If you email it, you can put it in the body of the email or send it as an attachment. Please put the title of your fic in the subject line of the PM or email. Deadline for submissions is Saturday, April 9, at midnight EST. 4. Submissions should be anonymous! Please do not share your story with anyone else or tell anyone which one is yours once they are posted! 5. If you would like to have someone beta (proofread) your story, please choose someone who is NOT a participant in this challenge. Or if you like, I will be happy to beta your story when you send it to me. Just let me know when you send it. 6. Once all of the stories are in, we will publish the links to them and everyone can start reading! 7. After you have read the fics, you can post feedback for them. I will post the feedback guidelines when we get the stories up. And now your inspiration for this challenge! The song is "100 Years" by Five For Fighting, submitted by Jacqui! You can listen to it here. It's You Tube, so I hope everyone can see it. And here are the lyrics... 100 Years Written by John Ondrasik I'm 15 for a moment Caught in between 10 and 20 And I'm just dreaming Counting the ways to where you are I'm 22 for a moment She feels better than ever And we're on fire Making our way back from Mars 15 there's still time for you Time to buy and time to lose 15, there's never a wish better than this When you only got 100 years to live I'm 33 for a moment Still the man, but you see I'm a they A kid on the way A family on my mind I'm 45 for a moment The sea is high And I'm heading into a crisis Chasing the years of my life 15 there's still time for you Time to buy, Time to lose yourself Within a morning star 15 I'm all right with you 15, there's never a wish better than this When you only got 100 years to live Half time goes by Suddenly you’re wise Another blink of an eye 67 is gone The sun is getting high We're moving on... I'm 99 for a moment Dying for just another moment And I'm just dreaming Counting the ways to where you are 15 there's still time for you 22 I feel her too 33 you’re on your way Every day's a new day... 15 there's still time for you Time to buy and time to choose Hey 15, there's never a wish better than this When you only got 100 years to live Remember, the most important thing is to be creative and have fun!! Try to think outside the box...do something out of the ordinary with it...use your imagination! And once again let me say, anything goes. You can ship, not ship, slash, not slash, angst, humor, romance, smut...whatever you want. We are just having fun here and being creative. All stories are welcome and encouraged. Now start writing!
