2008 DCU Fic/Art Valentine's Day Challenge

So, the mad whirl of the holidays are done, and now we’re left with snow, snow, and more snow until spring, what should we do?

Our thoughts should turn to love! :)

Romance! Lace! Red-white-and-pink! ;)

Writers, artists, icon-makers, manip-makers!

Select at least two prompts from the following (one from each category, or two from the same category) and if you want to include more than two, be my guest!

Link your contributions here on this page.  Here is the easy-to-read Master List.


Traditional

Roses (Any color)

White Lace

Red Silk

Red Velvet

Hearts

Chocolate/Candies

Candles

Dinner

Dancing

Music (Mention if it’s jazz, pop, etc. Bonus points for mention of the song title and singer/band and/or lyrics)

Colors:

Red

White

Pink

Sappy Card ;) 

Jewelry

Non-Traditional 

Flowers (any kind except roses)

Black Lace or Flannel? ;)

Chocolate is traditional, but are there any other kinds of foods considered an aphrodisiac or could work as a foodie version of sex pollen? ;)

Colors:

Purple

Black

Yellow

Menage a trois

Fishnet Stockings

Toys (You know what kind! ;) )

Hotel/No-Tell Motel (Either very cheap and chintzy, or an over-the-top Valentine-themed place)

Genre: Sure, romance comes to mind, but what else ya got? ;) Drama, humor, hurt/comfort, etc.

Pairings (or threesomes, etc. ;) ): Slash, het, gen (this is DCU but if you’d like to write Clex, hey, that fits into the DCU!)

Rating: G all the way through to NC-17

Posting dates: January 14th-February 14th, 2008 (If you don’t make the deadline, don’t worry. We want to read your fic or look at your awesome art even it’s past Valentine’s Day!) J

Also, if your fic fits the Chocolate Challenge, please feel free to post to both sites! J

Oooooo.... I'm in!

Excellent! :)

From the traditional I'll pick the jewelry, and from the non-traditional I'll pick the flowers.

Sounds like you've got a good combo already!

Not sure what pairing yet, let me think about it. :)

No hurry! I deliberately set the start date in a few weeks to give people time to think things out. And I thought a posting window of a month would be fun so that we could get Valentine Day-themed fics for a longer time than just February! ;)

Haha!! The plot bunny that's been nibbling my ankles for the chocolate challenge has just gotten more insistent! O_O

This is one I'm gonna have some serious fun with, methinks. ^_~

I'm not ready to jump in but I'll think about it. Depends on how close I get to finishing the chocolate fics.

Cool, Selina! Chocolate or Valentine's Day! It's all good! :)

Author’s Notes: Also written for the February Prompt (Aphrodite) for the 2008 Wonder Woman Love Fic/Art Calendar Challenge. Also, even though chocolate is not the main focus of this story, it’s got its little role, so fits the 2008 DCU Fic/Art Chocolate Challenge, too. Three for the price of one! ;)
I also used quite a few of the Valentine Prompts. :)
I’ve also decided to collect all my Steve/Diana stories that take place early in their relationship under the title "The Princess And The Pilot". I’ve gone back and re-titled two fics that take place in that timeframe. The entire series can be found here.
