Competition: Still A Better Love Story Than Twilight

Running
Still A Better Love Story Than Twilight

Jedi Romances. Once they were one of the most popular genres in the Old Republic. They were all set at outposts on the far Republic frontiers, full of unrequited love and longing glances . . . the only action was the lightsaber battles that were clearly a substitute for what the characters really wanted to do.

In 500 words or more, celebrate this the month of love (or loneliness, depending on who you ask) by writing a cheesy love story centering on your character, or one of your alternates, being and some special person, with whom love blossoms; the more melodramatic and cheesy the better!

Choose from one of the following prompts, or feel free to modify them as you see fit:

Star-Crossed Lovers

Your character has begun an illicit romance with a member of an enemy Clan; the two of you pine away in secret, but any discovery will mean certain death for your betrayal! Whatever are you to do?

Alone Together

You've been assigned to some small, isolated outpost for an extended period, and the only other person is the most infuriating individual you've ever met... right? It's not like you like them or anything, and being in such a confined space is simply awful! ....Right?

A Match Made In Stockholm

You've been taken captive by a member of some enemy force, possibly another Clan, or the Collective, and are being carted away to their headquarters for interrogation. In spite of your better judjement, however, the two of you begin to develop a begrudging respect for each other during your journey, and, perhaps... something more?

Winners will be selected based on the Fiction Grading Rubric 2.0... with a natural lenience on the "Realism" side of things. Physical seens are permitted, naturally, but anything overtly sexual or pornagraphic will be disqualified.
