12:48 pm - Short Ruka drabble

Though I certainly don't claim to be able to single-handedly revolutionize revitalize this community, I have been lately been feeling terribly nostalgic for this series and its fandom, and did write some short drabbles last summer which I haven't posted here yet. Here's one:

Title: Nothing
Author: Neva
Character: Ruka
Word Count: 205
Rating: PGish
Notes: Set directly after Episode 29, "Azure Paler Than the Sky," and written as part of the Alphabet Game, a multi-fandom self-challenge from last summer.

9:13 pm - New Challenge + Fic

This comm is rather dead, and that makes me sad. So how about a new challenge? Let's call it...


Revolutionary Girl Utena is largely about growing up, right? So if and when the characters have children of their own, how will their be influenced by the lessons they learned at Ohtori? Or perhaps the lessons they failed to learn? I'll start us off.

Title: Ode to a Grecian Fairy Tale
Challenge: Parenthood
Characters: Utena, Anthy, OC
Word Count: 798

Childhood isn"t something that can be skipped over.Collapse )

11:54 am - Music drabbles, by veleda_k

So, I was inspired by this meme:

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts and stop when it's over, no lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

The results are at my journal. Pairing include, but are not limited to, Utena/Anthy, Touga/Saionji, Ruka/Juri and Kozue/Miki.

1:10 am - Revolutionaries Anonymous

The first drabble in this set popped into my head when I let my mind wander while listening to my Philosophy of Science professor's lecture on scientific revolutions and how they relate to political revolutions, and the rest followed from there. Just an interesting (?) little anecdote.

Challenge: None
Characters: Miki, Juri, Wakaba, Saionji, Nanami, and Touga, with mentions of Shiori, Utena, and Anthy. So half the cast, pretty much.
Word Count: five separate drabbles totalling about fifteen-hundred words

10:22 pm - Mod Post: Bodyswap Challenge

Hi, folks! nevacaruso had an awesome idea for a challenge, and as always, I am an enthusiastic facilitator for things that are awesome! This one's called the Bodyswap Challenge, and it's a simple concept with a ton of possibility. Remember how Utena and Anthy swap bodies in "Curried High Trip"? Take that idea, and apply it to other characters!

This could go in a lot of different directions. On the humorous side of things, Ruka could find himself in Juri's body and be totally fierce. (The boy just has an unsettling level of skill when it comes to applying mascara, what can I say.) On the angsty flipside, Shiori could unwittingly be sweet to Juri-wearing-Ruka's-body, and say all sorts of lovely things to "him", and utterly crush Juri's heart a little bit more. Touga could embarrass the heck out of Saionji by doing his normal Touga-esque things using Saionji's body; Miki and Kozue could be intensely confusing all over the place; Shiori and Juri could spend a lot of time being equal parts hot like fire and self-loathing; Utena could be adorable and blushy wearing Nanami's body and Nanami could scowl at everyone a lot before she realizes that this is her perfect opportunity to bring her excellent fashion sense into that weird tomboy's life via an obnoxious makeover. Also, you could explore the how behind the bodyswap. Could magical curry be behind it, and is Anthy just toying with everyone? Is there another reason entirely?

You could drabble about characters fencing in each other's styles; or write about a character experiencing awkward adjustment moments involving learning to move in someone else's body. Most importantly, there could be sexy exploratory bodyswap scenes involving full length mirrors and not a lot else! You get the picture.

Remember, the list of every challenge ever issued is available and up-to-date, if you're looking for a topic to write about. The challenges in this community are always continuous, so you can answer any challenge at any time regardless of when it was originally issued.

Now, go forth and write bodyswap stories!

5:47 pm - Let This Lose Me Grace, by girlchild

Title: Let This Lose Me Grace
Author: girlchild
Notes: For the fifth wave of the MTO challenge. veleda_k requested Kozue/Anthy-- "There hovers forever around you delight: a beauty desired." A what-if story about what might have happened if Miki had won his first duel with Utena, and an exercise in obsessive behavior.

The Queen of the Heavens hides her wickedness under a layer of paint.Collapse )
