I forgot that I lurk on TVTropes like a loon. It's worse than wiki for eating my evenings up.
I'm massively rusty on writing anything, so have no real proper characters to through at challenge #1 but I do love #2 and #3.
Unfortunately, due to graduation, post-grad panicking and the Olympic torch being in my area and the assorted fussing, and my birthday, and then a friend's birthday and lotsa lotsa thingies, I'm off to the other side of the country between 2nd-8th June, the weekend and early week afterwards are full of birthday loveliness and Olympic pain, and then the rest... so I could only do the June bits and not the July. Hmmm?
