Nine years running - wow, we're having a special anniversary coming up next year, don't we?

But before we look ahead in time (alas, your mods lack a TARDIS or vortex manipulator to actually make the jump), let's look at the NOW: Round Nine is here!

For those who are new: we have a terrific group of authors and artists who have spent the last month creating works for a special set of 15 prompts, and now it's time to showcase them, one by one - and to let you all loose on them as well!

This year's theme? Inspired by the Emoji Bots in a recent episode, we're getting all emotional this time! Because it doesn't matter what the emotion in question, if it involves the Doctor and Jack, you can bet it will be intense. :D

Each prompt contains an emotion, an action, a secret and a piece of music. (All of the music should be easily googleable.) How much of those prompts you use, and how you interpret them - as usual for this fest, it's all up to you.

Every creator was assigned one of the prompts, and we'll be posting their works over the course of the month. In addition, for the whole month of July, all of these prompts are open for anyone in the comm to write or create to. As usual with Winter Companions challenges, you can interpret any of these however you like. You're not required to use all of your prompts - they're just meant as something to get your ideas flowing. :)

Please let our authors and artists know you appreciate their work! And while you're at it, we hope you'll offer some of your own. Come and join our party!

The prompt groups are listed below, and they're all open for the taking. There's no particular order to them, and you can post your responses any day this month.

Here's this year's prompt list: )

The first showcased entry will be up in a moment - enjoy!

As a gentle reminder, please don't crosspost stories for this challenge elsewhere until the challenge closes about one month from now. Thank you!
