|TheTheme Challenges were something I came up with for a LiveJournal
group I was apart of. If people wish for me to compile a list of these,
please send me a link to the story you've done for them and I'll start
creating a page just for these.
Here are the rules for the Theme Challenge:
1. You may pick your favorite character(s) to use in this, but you need to have at

that’s the number per set) and I challenge someone to do all 12 sets…..
6. Try to keep the themes so that everyone can read them. I know some people
like to write adult stuff, but try to keep it so that it would be something you could
show to say…your grandparents if you had to. We want everyone to be able to
