Tribute, eh? Well. Umm. Aha! Oh wait, no, I started writing that already...

Ah well. I'm still joining this week, I think.

Regrettably, I'm afraid I cannot have as much fun as I thought I would be able to with this wonderful prompt. I've just realised I have two chaptered fics on the go! I'll have to wait.

    This is totally not my excuse for why I haven't participated in my own writing challenge for the first three rounds.

    Which is to say, totally okay. Wilt thou be participating in future rounds?

    Absolutely. It's just that these next couple of weeks, I have holidays, so I'm gonna do as much chapter-writing as I can. After that, I'm slowing down to one chapter a week due to school. I should be able to do a 7K fic and a 3K chapter in one week, easy. All 7day entries will now be tie-ins to Shattered or Spliced, mostly Shattered. So don't worry, I'm still in.

      As a reminder to everyone, the 7 Day, 7 K challenge begins today. Get crackin'!

      I might actually participate this week. But then again, I say that every week and fail miserably. But I have ideas this time!

        I am going to give it a go. Can't promise anything spectacular, but I think this could be fun!

          Oh dear. No entries this week. ._.

          In any case, the first post has been updated with the latest prompt, done in honor of a certain fortieth anniversary.

          I'm missing what the 40th anniversary is for. I'm sure the moon's been around longer than 40 years, and I'm fairly certain Sailor Moon has been around for less. What gives?

          Actually, never mind. I'm just slow, and non-American. I get it now. Duh.

            It's okay. I didn't realize non-Americans might not have been taught about that. XD; Sorry.

            No, I knew all about it. We just don't place so much of an emphasis on it over here.

            Actually, I lied when I said I knew all about it. What was the name of the craft? Was it Apollo 11, 13, or 16? ; My modern history is awful.

              Apollo 11. Don't worry. I don't think too many Americans know that either. XD

              I remember getting taught about the 50 states and their respective capitals. We even learned some American history, as also some of it would have intertwined with our country's history.

              Weird . . . I went to Washington, DC, and our tour guide asked us if anybody knew what the four (or five, or six, don't remember) previous capitals of the U.S. were. On a bus full of Americans, with maybe a Canadian or two, and me, our combined knowledge was only enough to guess two.

              Philadelphia was one I believe, I'd like to guess Boston, but that might be up in the air. The rest I can't remember.

              Anyway, to stay on topic: I might write something later, though I have come up with an idea (not necessarily for the 7k thing though).

              I do believe Annapolis was one as well.

              I have some good ideas for 'Moon'. I may well actually use the prompt on this one.

                  I failed. I have deleted it, and will be writing something new for the next prompt.

It's okay, though. If you ever go to Harrisburg, you'll note that it's actually rather unremarkable anyway.

                    You're right about Boston being the capital of Massachusetts, though.

                    Incidentally, congratulations, guys. You've given me ideas for the next prompt.

                    For this one, however, I'm going to attempt it, and by God, I might actually do it this time.

                    *shock*

                    Jax is going to participate in her own competition? what is this, week 4? Well.

                    I have a sneaky feeling that this will be the first week we have more than one winner. And I meant capitals of the actual country.

                      Whoops. Misread that. In that case, yeah, Philadelphia was one. Annapolis either before or after that (can't honestly remember off the top of my head) and then DC. Boston was in the running, but it just fell flat, surprisingly enough.

                      Mmm, US history.

                      Must be so confusing. You have a lot more history than us; you've been around longer, and you're one hell of a lot bigger. We're a little nation of four million. Hell, NY city has three times the population of our whole country crammed into one tiny area.

                      But NY is awesome. I spent a few days there, and it really is the city that never sleeps.

                        Well, I officially fail at writing. But I have an excuse this time in the form of that one fic I keep writing.

                        Anyway, if you'll notice, I've given you two prompts: one for week six and one for week seven. Assuming this challenge is still alive, you guys get to fly solo for awhile because I'm going to be gone for a week and a half in the middle of the month. As in, literally, I'm leaving the middle of week six and not coming back until the middle of week seven.

                        Try not to burn this place down, mmkay?

                        I plead the same excuse. Have fun wherever you're going when you go!

                          Back, and I do believe we're due for a new prompt, yes?

                          It's now up on the first post. Start planning, lovelies.

                          Hey, I might give this a try. No doubt I'll fail miserably, but that's the part that's the most fun XD

                          We start writing on this Sunday, right?

                          Hmm...lesson? Well that might be tricky...
