Gang, it's so dark in here I couldn't find the keyboard to close the challenge. (Ok. It's a stretch, but we ARE sorry we're late on this one.) Time to drag all your entries kicking and screaming out of the dark - and into the limelight, where they all deserve to shine. And if you wonder just where that light's coming from, well... stay tuned for the next challenge, coming shortly. For now, the Darkness challenge is officially over. The entries can be found using the "challenge: darkness" tag - or just click here.

You are all fantastic - the entries for the last challenge were just wonderful. As a gentle reminder, please don't crosspost stories for this challenge to other comms until the challenge closes. As for me, I'll be over here reading and re-reading last month's submissions.

With the first challenge under our collective belts, it's time to move on. After all, the year is progressing rapidly towards its end: the days are getting shorter, the nights colder, and the creatures that like the dark are getting restless. (Note: if they show up wearing rubber masks and demanding candy, it's probably not worth calling Torchwood. Although the Doctor has a great story about this one time where it was just masks all the way down. But I digress.)

In honor of the holidays at the end of October (however you may celebrate them), we invite you to stick Jack and the Doctor in the dark - literally or figuratively....

The "Darkness" Challenge!

Darkness manifests in all kinds of ways: Despair. Anger. Grief. A cloudy night with no moon in the middle of the country. An underground cellar, with bogeymen lurking just under the stairs. Or, you know, what happens when the power goes out and you're left banging around your house wondering where the heck you put the batteries, since the ones in your flashlight/torch are (of course) dead.

None of these are unfamiliar to Jack or the Doctor - they've embraced the dark just as often as they've beaten it down. (And Jack has a great story about the time he went looking for those batteries and wound up in bed with the electrician. Toolbelts = win. Ahem.)

It's time to turn out the lights on our beloved duo: here's a few ideas to kick things off.
  • Both Jack and the Doctor have deep, dark secrets - what are they? How far down do they drag the person in question? What's it like to keep them hidden away from the light?
  • Or: Jack and the Doctor both play the hero, but what happens when their darker sides come to life?
  • Or: What -do- those two get up to in the dark? Fun and games? Or do night terrors abound?
  • Or: How exactly DID Jack wake up with his head on that electrician's pillow?
So much darkness: time for you to drag it kicking and screaming into the light - as fic, of course. The challenge closes one month from today; posting guidelines can be found here. Interpret the prompt as you like, take any of our suggestions or not - anything's good so long as Jack or the Doctor - or both of them - spend some time in the dark. What are you waiting for?

(And don't forget - leave a comment in THIS post and tell us what you think the next challenge should be!)
