the good place quote challenge - may 7th 2021


Recommended Posts

Trevor

challenge name:

the good place quote challenge


challenge deadline:

may 7th 2021


accepted fandom(s):

hp, b99, tgp, dw, of, and basically every other fandom so long as i dont need extensive canon knowledge for it


accepted ratings:

all that's accepted on the archives :3


challenge details:

so i was rewatching the good place, as i do, and then suddenly jason said something and i was like waaaaaaaait that could be a good quote to use in a quote challenge. so i set to watch the rest of all the eps (and the like few that came before that ep bc i was still in s1 at that point) and jotted down quotes that were either iconic or like a good challenge for people or a little bit of both.

so i've made a list of 33 quotes, and you get to pick a random nummer, and i'll give the quote listed :3 you're free to change the quote up to three times, but you must use one of the quotes that have been given to you. the stories cannot be prewritten (as in, already up on the archives), but may be combined with other challenges, and if you do a multichapter, please have two chapters of it either validated or in the queue at the end of the deadline! multiple entries are allowed.

so to compile it all in a more readable list:

  • pick a number between 1-33 to get a quote
  • you may switch up to 3 times
  • prewrittens aren't allowed
  • multiple entries are allowed
  • please have 2 chapters either up or in the queue by the end of the deadline if you do a multichapter
  • may be combined with other challenges
  • please have 'for ineke's the good place challenge' in the summary (or something like that sentence) (also do i dont accidentally validate it myself bc then i wont be able to judge fairly yknow)

 

rewards:

i cannot do graphics to save my life, but i might just look at some members v kindly to help me out here, but the ball is yet to be up on that one.

however, all entries will be reviewed (all chapters too in case of a multichap)

first place gets 6 reviews on a story of their choosing

second place gets 4 reviews on a story of their choosing

third place gets 2 reviews on a story of their choosing

 

i think i've got it all listed, but please do let me know if you have any questions whatsoever :3

course you may:

20. That’s called “tyranny” and it’s generally frowned upon.

of course!

7. I’ve only ever said ‘I love you’ to two men my entire life, Stone Cold Steve Austin and a guy in a dark club who I mistook for Stone Cold Steve Austin.

 

feel free to replace stone cold steve austin to whichever name would fit better if need be :3

Nice! I think this may work perfectly.

 

Question though -- if we change to another prompt, can we still ultimately go back to the first one we got?
