Pride goeth before a fall, they say - although really, the only "fall" to be had is the close of the challenge. Pride's had its chance - time to let a few more humble individuals take the stage. (Although when you see what we have lined up for July, you'll be proud to share a comm with the folks who chipped in to make it happen!) For that to happen, though, so does this: The Pride challenge is now closed.

You can find all the entries under the challenge: pride tag, or just click here.

Next up, JULY!

After last month's fun, time to tackle some things again that strike at the heart of our boys' character:

We proudly announce the Pride Challenge!

Let me quote [livejournal.com profile] hence_the_name, who originally suggested this topic:
I was rewatching VotD not too long ago, and I *finally* made out what the Doctor shouts when he kicks the broken teleport: "I can do anything!" So...Jack and the Doctor both know they have abilities that outstrip those of most everyone around them. But that knowledge often leads to overconfidence. How many times have they both been so certain they can handle a situation, only to find things spiraling even further out of control? Or made choices for others because they believe they know best, only to watch that person's trust fall apart? How might pride come between them? (I'm in angst mode right now, but I'm certain there's a lighter angle to this one, too--games of one-upsmanship?)

Or, of course, you could go an entirely different way and send our heroes to a Pride Parade. :D As usual, anything goes.

As a gentle reminder, please don't crosspost stories for this challenge elsewhere until the challenge closes about one month from now. And don't forget - leave a comment in THIS post and tell us what you think the next challenge should be!
