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.

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

2011-01-16 [Linderel]: I'm going to start coming up with new challenges. Just you wait. >:D

2011-01-17 [Chimes]: I feel all guilty now. :P

2011-01-17 [hanhepi]: don't feel guilty, unless you don't manip me a fairy ferret. then you may feel very guilty.
