THE "WTF?!" GIFT CHALLENGE!!! :)

Postby Aquarius » Sat Dec 27, 2014 12:31 am

It's been WAAAAAAY too long since we've done anything like this. And the archive has been WAAAAAAY too quiet. (Ahem.) (I'm totally busted, too!) So in an attempt to rectify that, I had an idea sparked by a Facebook post in which my friend was asking her friends to talk about any gifts they had received that they could have done with out. Not too long after that, this post from Jezebel called The Real Meaning Behind the Shitty Christmas Gifts You Didn't Ask For followed. As a hairdresser I have to say I related to many of those, because I've often found myself in situations where clients who don't know me that well felt obligated to give me something and it's led to some pretty interesting results. :lol:

But I digress.

So the challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a story in which a member (or more) of the Enterprise crew gets a WTF gift, something he or she just doesn't know what to do with. It does not have to be Christmas-themed, nor does it have to pertain to any of the holidays we celebrate in the Thanksgiving - New Year's corridor. That means it's open to just about any occasion - birthdays, Valentine's Day, Father's Day, or even random no-reason gifts. That also means no special deadline to get it done.

So think about it. What is the gift and how does your character of choice handle it?

Now go write something!

I'm in! I needed something to help me warm up the ENT-fic muscles now that I've got the time and inclination to re-start my writing engine.

(I might make this a two-fer and write a short Sherlock fic (double-drabble or something like) with the same prompt.
