The Proverbial Challenge 5 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 46
I’m not sure if anyone has issued such a challenge before, but I think it would be fun to use proverbs and sayings as inspiration. You can either use them as lines or you can make their meaning your theme. Either way, you are free to interpret them as you will.

Rules
1. It can be a new story or an existing one.
2. It can be of any rating, but make sure to mention if it’s M or MA.
3. It can be a one-shot, chapter story, drabbles, or even fanart.
4. Each prompt will have a word count and a deadline. You cannot go over or below the full length for chapter stories depending if it’s a max or min, and you must not surpass the word count for drabbles. If the word count for drabbles is 100 then it must be a perfect drabble of exactly 100 words; otherwise, it’s up to you whether or not to use the extra words offered for drabbles. You have until midnight of the given deadline to submit your entries for each prompt. The only rule that applies for fanarts is the deadline.

June




You can also resize the banners into 250x125 dimensions to fit in one line and add the small banner that names the challenge they belong to if you'd like. I just left the original size as it is for those who wish to do just one or two prompts and not all of them.

If you have any questions regarding the rules, don’t hesitate to ask. Karma point will be awarded to those who finish all three prompts each month. Have fun!

For this challenge, do you have to use the actual prompt verbatim in the entry or just use your interpretation of the prompt?

You are free to interpret them as you will. It's your choice whether to use the actual prompt or a phrase that holds the same meaning. You can also use it as a major or minor theme without actually using the prompt word to word. It's up to you really. As long as I can see that you have used the prompt in some way then you can use it in any way you want.

Yay!! I'm looking forward to your entries, angel!

If the font is too small, you can download it and enlarge it.
But, just in case, the prompts are always split evenly within the month. First one is due to 10/09, second one to 20/09, and third one to 30/09. It will always be this pattern!

Wonderful entry, love! You get a Karma point for completing all 3 prompts!!

Quick reminder, you have till midnight of September's 10th to submit your entry for the first proverb. Once the deadline passes, a new prompt will be up for the first third of October, so from now on you will have one month to finish each prompt. I thought it would be less stressful this way.

Awwe, Missy, you just missed the deadline for the first proverb, but you are certainly welcome to the rest of September's prompts. Welcome aboard!
