The Happy Summer Selax Story Summons

    Or HSSSS for short

    We've all seen the chronicle challenges for the obscure game NPCs two people in the world know about, or imposing misfortune upon poor, neglected TS characters, but in all these years, there is one being that has stood apart from the fray, untouched by parody. Well, the time has come. No longer shall he be forgotten!

    Yes, this summer's challenge is to write a story about Selax! And like all good Selax stories, it should contain two or more of the following:

    - Selax procrastinating on writing a story about Selax. (Whether it's the character-Selax procrastinating or person-Selax procrastinating is up to you.)
    - A cheesy romantic subplot
    - A summer book reading contest (bonus points if Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, or Star Wars are mentioned in some capacity)
    - A trip to the zoo
    - Cats
    - Dinosaurs
    - Violet (sic) television shows
    - An excessive load of homework
    - Spending time with family
    - Not attending Retsy's birthday party

    The suggested minimum length for this challenge is 400 words, but nobody actually pays attention to this number anyway. It's mostly to discriminate against Twitter users! #140isnotenough

    Since it's a summer challenge, it'll be open for entries up until the autumn equinox!

    You may want to revise that statement.



  • You read the Glass Menagerie too? :o Who are you? Do you want to be friends? Will you write an entry for this challenge?

    To be fair, other people usually find their characters victimized in chron challenges because quite often no one else takes the time to post a chron challenge. I just take advantage of that fact on occasion :) .

    Don't forget! Summer is drawing to a close. You don't want to miss out on a chance to tease Selax, do you? :)



  • Selax and romance? Is this a joke?



  • Nope. Deadly serious.



  • So... he's dating a female assassin with a penchant for friendly fire?



  • He wouldn't tell us if he was. would he?
