Over the Line Challenge

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: December 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Over The Line
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

After finding the cure and trying at a relationship with Logan for months, she finally decided to break up with him. (Partly because she's started to develop feelings for Alec, but knows he doesn't like her) Crushed from leaving/losing Logan, she goes to ___ (somewhere besides Alec's) to cry & whatnot and Alec just happens to find her there. They had developed a friendship, but secretly Alec is in love with Max. He comes on to her, but she freaks out, since she only JUST broke up with Logan & really did like him. He gets hurt, feels rejected & storms off.

Not wanting to lose her friend, she tries to go find him, but he's drunk, hurt & angry & ends up yelling at her, saying horrible things to her, putting her down badly & really hurting her emotionally. This time, she leaves not planning on ever seeing him again. Almost immediately Alec is filled with regret, but it's too late, she's already gone & he can't find her.

He finally runs into her a few weeks later, but has he lost her forever? They both know a simple apology isn't going to fix anything, but while Max still feels something deep down for him, she just doesn't know if she'll really ever trust him again

HEAT 101

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: December 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Heat 101
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

Okay - so all (or most) the fics out there tend to operate on the basis that Manticore didn't know about heat until it just happened to somebody. Typically, a girl went into heat, scientist thought all parties involved were crazy, then they figured out what happened & told the others, right? So, my challenge is for you to write a fic telling how it all went down. Including what the scientist had to sit down & explain to the X's about what the heck was going on. I mean really, can't you just picture THAT conversation.

RULES: Only one - Somehow, Alec has got to play a major part. (which could be either him being there when it went all crazy or him telling someone what happened the first time an X5 went into heat at Manticore.)

Spoke Too Soon Challenge

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: December 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Spoke Too Soon
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

With Logan out of the picture, Max is slowly getting the hang of heading up TC with her second-in-command Alec. They're 'relationship', however, is as volatile as ever. Max makes a lame excuse to leave for a few days, but Alec, sick of her crap & knowing there's more to the story, decided to tail her out of town. Turns out she left cuz' she was going into heat & much to Max's dismay, the inevitable happens. Alec decides he's finally had enough of Max's attitude though when he wakes to an empty bed and heads back to TC. Max shows up a couple of days later with everyone staring at her & finds out Alec went & bragged to all the guys about 'bagging Max in the sack'. What Alec didn't know was Max's first few experiences, at the age of 12, were not of the good kind. Max is beyond pissed & hurt. Will Alec ever dig himself out of the dog house?

Why They Love Each Other

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: December 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Why They Love Each Other
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

I get so tired of reading fics where: Max is a bitch, Alec is an arrogant jerk, Alec loves her, something bad happens, they live happily ever after. The End. If Max is such a bitch, why the heck would he like her?

So, my bunny is this: Write a fic explaining their relationship & attraction to one another. WHY does Alec like Max? WHY does Max like Alec? What's the attraction? (besides the obvious drop-dead gorgeousness factor of both)

Christmas Bunny

CHALLENGE BY: CandyCentric
ORIGINALLY MADE: December 2006
TITLE of challenge (if any): Christmas Bunny
CHALLENGE DETAILS:

Call this a Christmas bunny of sorts. Max decides to have a little fun & buy Alec something kinky (you decide what) for Christmas. She tells him to wait to open it until she gets back, but of course he doesn't listen. Not seeing what the big deal is, he ends up opening her 'gift' in front of other people (you choose who) & is a bit shocked (but totally excited) to see what’s inside. Max shows up, realizes what happened & is immediately mortified & angry (because she's so embarrassed). Hopefully Alec will find some way to make it up to her...
