Welcome to Challenge Chimes! This wiki is designed, quite selfishly, in fact, to get my creative juices flowing. I am asking you to challenge me! In what? Well, that's up to you, at the moment the categories are: Photography, Photomanipulation, Fiction and Poetry. I'm sure I'll expand later, probably when I can scan. So... what are you waiting for? Give me some challenges!

Not only is this designed as a form of inspiration but a chance for me to test my skills, so feel free to give me some challenging challenges - I couldn't think of any other words, alright? XD I want to improve by whatever means necessary. If I fail, you can laugh. It's a win-win situation.

Challenges can be detailed or they could simply be one-word prompts, either works.

To keep this page neat(ish), once I have completed a challenge I will delete the challenge from this page, don't worry, each challenge will be stored with the result of said challenge. If some are numbered and a number is missing, it means that I have completed the challenge. To see the results visit:

CC: Completed Challenges

How do I submit my challenge? Well, that's simple. Fill out and post this this little form in the comments of this wiki or send it to me via message:

Challenger: Username here, please.
Category: Fiction, Poetry, Photography or Photomanipulation.
Challenge: Be creative. :]

Please note: This is not a request wiki.



- For the purposes of this wiki, fiction includes: short stories, drabbles and possibly the odd script. The latter is rare.




- Anything goes really.


Challenger: [adramelech]
Challenge: "What's behind the shadows?"
Status: Pending



- Bear in mind, I do not have a studio. I use my room, my house and any random location that I find.


Challenger: [adramelech]
Challenge: "What's behind the shadows?"
Status: Ideas bubbling. Needed items: Black material, bright light, remote or timer on camera...



- Feel free to suggest stock with your challenges. However, if the stock does not belong to you (for example: it may belong to a stock artist on DeviantART or it may be from Reference Pictures) you must always tell me where it is from so that I can make sure I am definitely allowed to use it.


Challenger: Myself & a non-ET using person
Challenge: An icicle grin, to go with a poem. (If photomanipulation fails... drawing it is!)

[Linderel]'s mad prompting section. :P

*Write a sonnet. I don't care if it's Shakespearian, Spenserian or any other variety. Just write a sonnet. :P

*You must use each set of five either in a fiction or poetry piece. Inflections allowed, but you mustn't change the lexical category. If the word could be in several categories or have several meanings, pick freely which to use.
- cold, independent, putrid, standoff, warn
- carving, juxtapose, keen, opalescent, spark
- hum, rustle, key, reach, nail
- vine, cower, gargantuan, flesh, grimace

Prestige. Green fingers. Pact. Pagan. Slaughter. Lightning. Monday. Legends. Family. Fancy. Porcelain. Wormhole. Silence. Fix. Soul. Sorcery. Clipped wings. Clique. Bliss. Mythology. Trains. Modern gypsy/gypsies. Vicious cycle. Your favourite Shakespeare sonnet. Sonnet #18. The 'rose by any other name' quote.

Write a piece inspired by the image. It may either be central to the story, or included in a single scene. It must, however, be somehow significant. With some images you may simply use the concept indicated.

Yaaaaay! :D

2009-02-10 [Captain Rachel Black]: hmmmmm...*inspects wiki under a microscope*...interesting...XD

...aaand I think I'll stop for now. :P

2009-02-10 [Chimes]: You're soooo getting your own little section within each section :P Or your own section completely. XD

2009-02-10 [Linderel]: Heehee :P I told you I'd be throwing dozens of prompts your way :D

2009-02-10 [Linderel]: *feels all speshul* :P

2009-02-10 [Chimes]: And you did not lie. :P I like 'em though. Clipped wings may work with what I'll be shooting for my Photography work. :] I am using wings. I did shoot them before... but my camera had a fit and deleted them. XD

2009-02-10 [Chimes]: You are!

2009-02-10 [Linderel]: ^____^
I get a lot of practice coming up with themes with the portfolio contest... xD That, and I really, really like dictionaries. <3

2009-02-10 [Chimes]: Dictionaries are amazing. :D
Haha... maybe, I will be able to tie in some of these with the next round :P

2009-02-10 [Linderel]: Perhaps. :3

2009-02-10 [Chimes]: *rubs hands together*

2009-02-10 [Linderel]: Just wait till I get started on the image prompts, too. Then my section will truly start to look mad. xD

2009-02-10 [Chimes]: You may even get your own page one day :P

2009-02-10 [Linderel]: Hahahaha xD I'll aspire to that, then ;P

2009-02-10 [Linderel]: Awwwwww you gave me a link <3<3

2009-02-10 [Chimes]: Lmao XD
I need more 'See also' thingies.

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: The last image doesn't work O.o

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: Does now, I recalled the name wrong :P

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: That... is so very strange. :P XD
Have you seen the completed challenge? :]

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: Not yet :o *goes have a looksee*

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: The 'Dinner' one doesn't work.

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: Argh, stoopid thing.

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: There.

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: Wow. O.O That wasn't what I was expecting. But now... I have some vague image in my mind for it XD *will probably write it tomorrow*

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: What were you expecting, then? :P
I remember when I took that picture... I was out on a camera walk and then I saw this intact fish skeleton just lying there on the gravel. Was like 'o_O Uh, someone's lunch?' and then I snapped a shot because I found it, truth be told, somewhat amusing :D *has odd sense of humour*

2009-02-11 [Yuriona]: So can anyone enter this or is it for [Linderel] only? :P

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: Anyone can enter it, but she told me about this idea on MSN and I threatened to throw dozens of prompts her way... and I'm keeping my word. ;3

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: I was expecting some form of dinner... or something eating. Not a fish on a path. XD
Ahaha! That's brilliant. XD

Anyone :P Lin just loves her prompting. XD Hence the little special section. XD She may have gotten a little excited XD Or she wants me to go insane :P
Feel free to challenge :D

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: When I start on prompts I get carried away very, very easily. Don't try to tell me you don't love it. :P

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: I would try... but alas, I never was an actor :P

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: Heehee. :3

2009-02-11 [Jitter]: Oooh!

Must get my brain to work first then I will challenge you ^_^

2009-02-11 [Duke Devlin]: Oooo

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: Aaaah! I forgot you could edit any wiki XD Your Alice challenge is something I have planned... do you remember seeing Cheshire and White? :] Part of that series. I have the Queen of Hearts too, it would be on DA but it's still being a pain.

'Ello Dukey, darlin'. Guess what? I PAINTED SOMETHING AND IT ACTUALLY LOOKS GOOD! You know how I stay away from paint. :P (Well, technically it was printing ink... but I painted with it.)

2009-02-11 [Jitter]: Bahhh Sorry! I didn't notice it wasn't editable (almost wrote edible X) ) from members :s I try not to intrude >.<

*won't do it again*

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: I just have special permission. 'Cause I'm trying to make her insane. <_< :P

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: Jits, don't worry about it. :P Feel free to edit. It's only owner editable because I think it looks better and I don't want people putting things in the wrong places... or even sabotage! XD I trust you, it's fine. :P

Trying, yes. But I'm not gone yet!

2009-02-11 [Skydancer]: Wow, Lin can be tough! :D thats a heck of a challenge.

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: It's gazillions of challenges. XD I do love my Lin. :] (Yes, you're mine now) I'm working on one of them right now, in fact :P

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: And gazillions more will come! :D

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: EXCELLENT!

2009-02-11 [Duke Devlin]: Szchoom~ Y'all (yes, you are a plural) need challenges from me! :O

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: (I'm not just a plural, I'm several plurals :P) I DO! :D *bounces*

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: :P

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: Ooo... I like this new set very much :D

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: You ought to - you inspired me xD

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: I did? How? XD

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: See the previous comments by yourself and Duke :P

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: Haha! I see!

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: My brain started with 'plurality' and then just ran along its own odd paths...

2009-02-11 [Chimes]: It's all good XD You've given me an idea with it though... probably going to be poetry again. XD

2009-02-11 [Linderel]: Wheeee :D

2009-02-12 [Chimes]: And it's done. XD

2009-02-14 [iippo]: Good wiki. You has win. :3

2009-02-14 [Chimes]: I do? Yaaaaay~! Thank you.

2009-02-14 [Yuriona]: WHOO HOO! I have new camera! MUAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!

2009-02-14 [Chimes]: Oooooo! What type of Camera? *prances*

2009-02-14 [Yuriona]: A Canon SX10IS PowerShot. XD Of course, first I need to go through the instruction manual. :O

2009-02-14 [Chimes]: 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... *drooooool*

2009-02-14 [Yuriona]: I was totally surprised that's for sure. *nods* I have a little Kodak EasyShare CX7525 that I was fine with but the hubby knows I love taking photos and decided to get me an upgrade. :O

2009-02-14 [Chimes]: He's definitely a genius *nods*

2009-02-14 [Yuriona]: I agree!!

2009-02-14 [Skydancer]: ah... a quite good camera, you should be able to do some fascinating imagery with it.

2009-02-14 [Yuriona]: I hope so. I want to take my girls to a wilderness park nearby and try it out.

2009-02-14 [Skydancer]: that sounds brilliant, should be a ton of nifty pics come from an adventure like that.

2009-02-14 [Yuriona]: If they ever get their rooms cleaned... *sighs*

2009-02-24 [Chimes]: Did they ever get their rooms cleaned? XD

2009-03-18 [Mordigen]: ooo, ooo, ooo....I'm soooo gonna use this page ........just as soon as I get through my list of work that is taking up my time currently :(  (notice how I'm super late in getting here) 
but then!

hahahah! HA

2009-03-18 [Chimes]: Awesomes. :D

2009-04-12 [Duke Devlin]: I challenge you... To challenge everyone who has challenged you! >:D

2009-04-12 [Duke Devlin]: You know, I am terribly certain that that was horrible grammatically.

2009-04-12 [Chimes]: I will.. if zay wants to be challenged. :P

2009-04-12 [Duke Devlin]: Well, I have challenged you to do so, if you do not, then you have failed a challenge. :( That would be sad. :(

2009-04-12 [Duke Devlin]: They don't necessarily have to fulfill the challenge. XD

2009-04-12 [Linderel]: She's already challenged me a couple of times... at request. :P

2009-04-12 [Duke Devlin]: :O
Well, then she need not do so! :O She preemptively began my challenge to her! :P

2009-04-12 [Chimes]: Haha!

2009-04-12 [Duke Devlin]: *Bowage*

2009-05-01 [hanhepi]: so, if i challenge you, is it like a dual? do i have to draw/whatever too?

2009-05-01 [Duke Devlin]: Nuuuu. :P

2009-05-01 [Chimes]: You can if you want. :P

2009-05-03 [hanhepi]: coool... so now i just have to think of something off the wall for you to do. :)

2009-05-13 [Keir Devlin]: I fail at this shit.
Therefore, I cannot challenge you. XD
Maybe I'll submit something shitty JUST so you can beat me. o__O

2009-05-13 [Chimes]: Well you don't have to complete the challenge too :P That part is optional.

2009-05-13 [Mordigen]: OK, now
Since no one seems to be dabbling in this, and since you yourself chimes label the latter as 'rare' ----- I challenge! >:}

Challenger: [Mordigen]
Category: Fiction
Challenge: A One-Act Script, detailing the events of a logical-minded man that has an astounding encounter with a faery, who does nothing but whine and bitch and complain about how nobody believes he/she is real, including an internal struggle of the man debating himself if this is really happening, or maybe those mushroos he bought at the store were definately the wrong kind of mushroom. Being at least 10 pages long (which actually goes really fast with dialogue)

2009-05-13 [Chimes]: Wow. Specific :P I'll add it up later. :) I won't be able to do it for a while with exams and stuff being soon.

2009-05-13 [Mordigen]: LOL That is a-ok I just wanted to try to add something noone else had yet
Ah, situation specific - but the dialogue and interaction is where it can get really creative

2009-06-05 [Duke Devlin]: It sounds like a really good challenge, Mordi. :O Well thought out. ;)

2011-01-16 [Linderel]: *bump*

2011-01-16 [Chimes]: I got busy :P I really should work on these things, huh? I started a few. :P
