After March's fest, we've had another fantastic month. Those Simon and Garfunkel lyrics certainly proved to be inspiring! But all good things ... well, you know. *g* In short, the Winter Companions Challenge is closed now.

You can find all of April's entries under the challenge: winter companions tag, or just click here.

New challenge coming up in a bit!
Title: Chance Meeting
Author: The Plaid Slytherin ([livejournal.com profile] plaid_slytherin)
Challenge: Winter Companions
Rating: All Ages
Pairing: Ten/Jack
Summary: The Doctor always seems to know where to find Jack.

Not that he'll ever admit it, but the Doctor has an uncanny ability to find Jack when he needs it most. )
Title: Perpetual Motion
Author: templeremus
Challenge: Winter Companions
Word Count: 1700
Rating: PG for angst
Pairing: Jack/Doctor (various); hints of Jack/Alonso
Spoilers/warnings: Specific spoilers for 'The End of Time'; vague ones for the start of series 5.
Summary: Jack meets, travels with, and lives a life apart from the Doctor. Not necessarily in that order.
Three years, three Doctors, and a non-linear relationship, lived in one quiet corner of the Universe.

March was an AMAZING month of fic - 34 stories from 20 authors, some of whom are brand new to the comm. To everyone that prompted, played, and commented, thank you so much. We hope you had as much fun as we did!

In the theme of going back to the beginning, we thought this month, we'd prompt you with something you see every time you visit the comm - the Simon and Garfunkel lyrics that gave us our name.

Old friends, old friends,
Sat on their parkbench like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass
Falls on the round toes
of the high shoes of the old friends

Old friends, winter companions, the old men
Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sunset
The sounds of the city sifting through trees
Settle like dust on the shoulders of the old friends

~Bookends, Simon & Garfunkel~

We're not asking you to write that scene - or even part of it - we just thought we'd throw out the image and see what it prompts you all to come up with! Me, I am currently really stuck on Jack and the Doctor and those gorgeous coats. That scene where they run down the hall in Utopia? Makes me so, so happy.

But I digress.

Tell us what story crops up in YOUR brain when you read the lyrics. I can't wait to find out!

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!
