Challenge Title: ABC
Submitted by: Hannah, April/May 2004
Write a short fic where each paragraph begins with a different letter of the alphabet, starting with 'A' and working your way to 'Z' to finish up.

For example...

As Lecter moved into the room, Clarice Starling jerked her head up in surprise.

"Bugger! You scared me, Hannibal. When did you get back?"

"Clarice." He chuckled. "Feeling a bit jumpy, My Dear?"

If you need more than 26 paragraphs, you can cycle back through the alphabet again until you finish. You need not complete the entire alphabet a second or third time, but you must reach 'Z' at least on the first pass.

Challenge Title: Poetry Challenge
Submitted by: Hannah, January/February 2003
Criteria: In addition to our fiction challenges for January & February 2003,
we also had a couple of specific poetry challenges.


Lecteresque Haiku    inspired by  Dr. Peter

Lecteresque Limericks   suggested by  AA Aaron



Challenge Title: What's Love Got to Do With It?
Submitted by: Hannah, February 2003
Criteria: Our theme is Lecteresque romance, in honor of Valentine's Day.
By Lecteresque romance I mean precisely a show of affection in keeping with the Doctor's sense of whimsy without heartfelt declarations of love, proposals of marriage, pregnancy, vriginity, puppies and kittens, hearts and rainbows, etc. The Doctor seems to have a fondness for flowers and jewelry, so we'll leave them on the table, the exception being an engagement ring -- that would be a no-no. In short, we want nothing cute, sweet, or otherwise precious.

expressions of intimacy or connection in keeping with the sensibilities of a sadistic serial killer are what we're looking for. Adult content is perfectly acceptable, but try to keep it on the edgy side.

Your entry should take the form of a one-part fic of short to moderate length. Drabble or flash is also acceptable.

Criteria: An encounter between a Thomas Harris character and their real-life counterpart... e.g. a meeting of Jodie Foster and Clarice Starling or Ralph Fiennes and Frances Dolarhyde. If you wish, you may have it occur following from a scene in the book or film, but this is not a requirement.

Your piece can take any form you choose... fic, drabble, poem, etc.
