Summary: We haven't had a new BEATS Challenge for a while. So, here are five prompts. The object is to write a story or create artwork that fits/uses the prompt. You can use one or more prompts in the story/artwork. The story/artwork can be any rating of Gen, Het or Slash, any genre and *MOST IMPORTANT* the MICHAEL BIEHN character must be central or pivotal to the story/artwork - because that is what we are all here to read!! the prompts for the BEATS Challenge #4:

1. Barbed wire.
2. Dance-halls called hurdy gurdies - men often danced together, because women were scarce.
3. Fake death.
4. Someone has the mark of a knife on him, flogging marks, or the hot branded iron.
5. Vultures.

Summary: While adding new items to the PHOENIX website, I noticed that there are a number of movie/TV shows where we have NO STORIES on this Fiction archive. So, I figured, how about a new fiction challenge to:


A Michael Biehn CHARACTER must be a central or pivotal presence in the story (no Real Person or underage fiction, please). Anything else is allowed--gen, het, slash--and at any rating.

I will create a piece of art for any story written for this challenge!

What to write? - Here are a few ideas:

1. A TAG -- what happened right after the end of the episode/movie?
2. A Missing Scene -- expand upon an existing scene or create a new scene in the middle of the movie/episode
3. AU (alternate universe) -- if you changed one moment in that movie/episode, what could have happened instead?
4. Further adventures -- what happened to that character at a later date? e.g. a new case, a new love interest, more nefarious deeds :)

Anyone up for this challenge?
