Your challenge is to write a short story inspired by the lyrics of one of the following Track #2 BSB songs:

Anywhere for You
Quit Playing Games
As Long As You Love Me
I Want it That Way
Shape of My Heart
Everybody
Just Want You to Know
Everything But Mine
Bigger
Permanent Stain


You can interpret the song as literally or as loosely as you like.  Your story doesn't necessarily have to fit with the whole song, but should work with at least one lyric.

This is an anonymous challenge, which means you won't reveal what you wrote until the end of the challenge.  After all entries are submitted, we'll turn this into a game where we try to guess who wrote what story and what song it was based on (I thought the last part would make for a fun extra challenge!).  That means you should not submit your entry under your own username, and you should not use any lyrics from the song in the title, summary, or text of the story.  If you really like songfics and want to go back and add those things in after the challenge is over, that's fine.  You can also add your own username as a co-author after the challenge is over if you want your story listed under your name.

For the challenge, you will post your story under the challenges account Mare created last year.

Username: challenges
Password: acbsb


You can also use this account to review other people's submissions.  This will make it possible to give feedback without either revealing that you didn't write that story or reviewing yourself to try to fool people.

The last day to submit a story will be Saturday, August 16.  That gives you one month.  We will start the guessing part of it on Sunday, August 17th - more information to follow on that.

Hopefully that makes sense.  Let me know if you have any questions!

I like this idea but my phone doesn't let me view photos on the forum for some reason. I'll still try to participate though.

LOL I dunno about the whole picture challenge idea; that is not really my thing, so I don't know what kind of pictures to look for.  Nothing really speaks to me.

Lol sorry I've been a lol busier. I was tossing around thoughts when I said pictures, it could be anything really. I haven't had time to look for photos anyway.

Well the thread is here for whenever anyone feels inspired to do anything lol

I am not feeling a picture challenge either. I think we'd do better with a theme like last time.

This is not the same idea, but this whole Nick & Knight tragedy gave me an idea for another challenge.  What about some kind of crossover challenge, where you take one of your own characters (Backstreet Boy or original) and someone else's character from another story and write them in a situation together?  Kinda like how some TV shows have crossover events... ER and Third Watch comes to mind; they started a storyline on an episode of ER and finished it on an episode of Third Watch.  Would anyone be interested in doing something like that?

Sounds good but not sure I'd be into it.

Maybe I just don't understand it. So, do you mean like if I take Nick from one of my stories and Howie from one of yours?  Type deals?
