GW500 Challenges

[ Mood | Creative ]

I just joined gw500 and I plan on going back and trying to write for a few of the older challenges as well, just for my own entertainment.

Challenges by gw500

This is just a short list of the challenges and when I get them done, any fics I will write for them will have links here as well. If you would like to read the other authors fics please go to the community and read, comment, and enjoy.

This list will be rather undetailed once I get them all in my notebook where I can keep them handy while offline.
