Quotations Challenge
Issued on: December 31, 2006
Ended on: March 9, 2007
Challengers: Symphonyflute and tarotgal

The responses are: 19 entries from 8 fandoms by 7 participants.

Sneezefic is fanfiction which involves characters sneezing. It is written and posted on a number of groups and sites. This challenge on the sneezefic mailing list was made to give members of the list a fun time trying something different and hopefully allow more writers to easily participate and contribute.

There are 25 Plot Bunnies to choose from for this challenge!

Theme: Quotations
Main Rule:
All fics must incorporate one of the quote bunnies into the story, either in narration or in dialogue.
