Title: Thinking of YouAuthor: blue_icy_roseRating: PGWord Count: 1,362Spoilers: Up to Donut's Run.Warnings: Future fic. Mentions of character death.Summary: Veronica gets some letters over the years.Disclaimer: They belong to Rob Thomas, not me.Author's Note: I think it's midnight exactly over here, so I'm doing this as quickly as possible. My prompt was how to detect a letter bomb and I had no idea what to do with it so I put my own twist on this. Hope you enjoy and feedback is always welcome!( Thinking of YouCollapse )
Title: Search PartyAuthor: rubie_so_hoCharacters: Logan, Veronica, the FitzpatricksRating: R for some bad languageWord Count: 2,489Spoilers: Takes place during 2x17 – but instead of Weevil staking out the River Stix, Logan goes with Veronica.Summary: Veronica and Logan attempt to escape some of the scariest animals they know – the Fightin’ FitzpatricksA/N: This is for the Worst Case Scenario challenge at vm_worstcase. My challenge was How to Escape a Bear. Bears can run awfully fast. If one’s chasing you, it’s best to stay still and quiet to avoid them (or something). ( She loathed admitting to herself that she had wanted, all along, to save him.Collapse )

And the winner for Best Overall Fic will win a prize (other than the banner and acclaim), as stated before, if they are willing to privately email me their mailing address.And without further ado (because I have already built this prize up to be way more than it is) here is the prize:A mini knit kitty (made by me)!..colors and exact style may be alerted.Thank you and good luck!
Title: And The Night Mare Rides OnAuthor: irmakCharacters/Pairings: Duncan, mentions of Duncan/Lilly, Duncan/Meg and Duncan/VeronicaRating: R Length: 1580Spoilers: If you watched One Angry Veronica, you're good. But, in fact, this fic is very much AU.Summary: Duncan is having nightmares, and he's in desperate need to find a way out. The italics are flashbacks and the rest is Duncan's narration.Warnings: Mentions of incest and character deaths.Notes: Written for vm_worstcase Challenge, and my assignment was "What to do if you are trapped in a well." If you can read this fic and actually understand what I mean, it's all mastermia's awesome beta-work. The title is borrowed from the lyrics of Smashing Pumpkins' 'Behold! The Nightmare'. And if you're still not bored, I encourage you to read Conrad Aiken's poem, Nightmare, which is kind of the inspiration for this fic. It gets darker and darker, and when the darkness looks like infinite, I feel like floating, but I in fact know that I’m still falling.
This is a little reminder to all of you doing the Worst-Case Scenario Challenge. Your fics are due on April 13th, which is this Thursday! So please get your fics in soon! I am so excited to read all the submissions. Yay! Oh and there is a prize! A very cute prize, I might add, for the person with the best fic. (If you're willing to email me your address, of course) Thank you!
Title: White Men Can't JumpAuthor: shellabelle81Characters/Pairings: Wallace, Logan/VeronicaRating: PG-13 for mild languageWord Count: 1,577Spoilers: This takes place the summer between "Leave it to Beaver" and "Normal is the Watchword", but there are no major spoilers. If you've seen the Pilot, you're good.Summary: Wallace fixes some fractures: a fractured leg and a fractured friendship.Disclaimer: The wonderfully awesome Rob Thomas owns all.Author's Notes: Originally written for the Worst Case Scenario Challenge at vm_worstcase. My scenario was How to treat a leg fracture. Also written for the Dialogue Challenge at vm_topbunk. The dialogue was "You should hear what people say about you." AND also written for the Storm prompt for my Veronica and Wallace BFF table at fanfic100. Can I multi-task or what? :)( White Men Can't JumpCollapse )
Title: Doesn't Anyone Watch the Discovery Channel?Author: kallie_katPairing/Character: Veronica/Logan, Dick, BeaverWord Count: About 1600Rating: PG, mostly for language and a bit of kissingSummary: A trip to the zoo with Dick and Beaver turns into more than Veronica expectedSpoilers: Vague spoilers for S1, I suppose.Warnings: This was written for vm_worstcase. It's my first Veronica Mars fic, and quite unlike anything else I've written, so I'm a little nervous. My worst-case challenge was What to do if you find yourself face to face with a mob of kangaroos.Apologies/Notes: Big thanks to Lisa Kelley for the beta, and to dragonydreams for the beta and the title. I hate coming up with titles! This is set in that brief period of time in S1, where Veronica and Logan are more than just friends. Also, I wanted to apologize for the Cassidy-bashing, but in my defense, in S1 we really didn't know he had hidden depths or anything. ( Dad frowns on detention, so I do my best to avoid it, unless I really can’t help itCollapse )
Fic: How to Escape from a Mountain LionAuthor: jacedesbffPairing/Character: Logan/Veronica, Cassidy/Mac, Dick and Madison mentionedWord Count: 2000+Rating: Strong PG-13 for sexual situationsSummary: Dictionary.com defines “mountain lion” as “a large, powerful cat”. So what happens when he goes on the prowl? Spoilers/Warnings: all of seasons 1 and 2Disclaimer: Rob Thomas. Bless his heart…again and again!A/N: I think you can guess what my challenge was! ::laughs:: All quotes are taken directly from “The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook”, which I have been using in my drama class for years (don’t ask.) Bottom line, I totally LOVED this challenge. And as a hard-core Fluffy McFlufferton LoVe fan, I needed some cheering up. Ha! This did it!!! Lovin’ the feedback! ( Read more...Collapse )
Title: He's So PrettyAuthor: freaky_claudiaPairing/Character: Logan/VeronicaWord Count: 1581Rating: PGSummary: Logan's just so pretty!Spoilers/Warnings: Season 1Disclaimer: Not mine, kay?Author's Notes: I got bored, and decided to finish the vm_worstcase challenge (when I find out how to do the community LJ tag thing, I will fix this), and this is what came out. I got "How to start a fire without matches" but this story has just a mention of it. Oh well, it's FLUFF, FLUFF, FLUFF, just so you're warned, enjoy and let me know what you think!( Read more...Collapse )

Title: Down In A Second (one shot)Author: Marianna Pairing/Character: Logan, Veronica. Aaron, mention.Word Count: 3255 (and I was worried about not hitting the 1000 word min.)Rating: NC-17Summary: Written for vm_worstcase challenge. I got "What would you do if you were trapped in a sinking car". And really, this story has next to nothing to do with sinking cars, but I hope you like it anyway. Set 10 years in the future, Logan and V are living almost completely seperate lives until the things that have been keeping them apart for so long aren't obsticles anymore. I sure do wonder what'll happen next...Spoilers/Warnings: Basic information of this and last season, but I mean, there are no major plotpoints that I cover that you won't get if you haven't seen every episode.
This is me getting onboard the challenge bandwagon. Because I like challenges and (hopefully) you like challenges and what better way to indulge in our shared joy? Veronica Mars is a P.I. right? A smokin’ hot P.I. who gets into more than her fair share of trouble each week. So this will be aptly named The Worst-Case Scenario Challenge.If you’re interested, and I sincerely hope you are, sign up! Let me know your name and your email address so I can contact you with your scenario. Please make your fic at least 1,000 words. I don’t care how you work your scenario into the fic. You can base the entire fic on your scenario or just have it quoted or commented on somewhere in the story. This does not need to be a humorous fic, I love a good laugh but who doesn’t love a good cry?Want a couple of examples?- How to escape from killer bees.- How to delivery a baby in a taxi cab.- How to survive adrift at sea.- How to make fire without matches.- What to do if you fall through a sidewalk grate.- What to do if an alligator interrupts your golf game.- What to do with an out of control camel.Hopefully you still want in, and if you do please read a few guidelines.- Fic must be 1,000 words to be considered- This challenge is for all Veronica Mars pairings. Hell, pairings aren’t even required.Sign up will be open for three weeks, ending on Monday, March 20th. I will be sending out the assignments as you sign up so the sooner you sign up the sooner you can get started on that wonderful fic I know you’re going to write. You may still sign up after March 20th but you’ll have less time to write. All fics will be due on April 13th (Thursday) by midnight PST. Please post your completed fic in The Worst-Case Scenario Challenge community, here vm_worstcase Alright, I think that is everything. So, thank you and good luck!If you wish to pimp this challenge, please feel free to use the banners below.
