Despite our charmingly tongue-in-cheek name, we're looking for quality fan fiction and vids.
PLEASE NOTE: This challenge is not to provoke or upset anyone. We don't like the character of Noah Mayer and don't think he treated Luke well. (And that Luke and Reid were so much better together.) We're not telling anyone they have to agree with us, or join this challenge. Noah is a fictional character. We're not attacking any real people here. This is our little sandbox, and you're welcome to come and play-- or not! Totally your call. :)
All ratings and story lengths are welcome. Your fic can be a porny novel, or a fluffy ficlet. We're looking for a variety of fic from drama, to Luke/Reid sexytimes, to fluff, to adventure, to comedy, to something sweet and touching. Because even more important than Noah not being right for Luke, is Reid and Luke being so right together.
To be clear: We don't need to be petty or write Noah out of character in order to show Noah is a douche; he just IS.
There are two categories.
1. Noah Who?
Which is defined as follows:
(a) to be written from an outside observer (non-Luke/Reid) POV,
(b) where the POV character starts out as skeptical of their relationship, and is either consciously or unconsciously pro-Noah, but after witnessing various scenes of Luke/Reid in action, they come to the conclusion of, "OMG they are MFEO! Noah who???"
2. General. For example:
-- A third party or Luke himself informing Reid about some part of Luke & Noah's relationship history, such as Ameera, the election storyline, the army false-start, how Noah behaved during the Brian-situation, etc.
-- Luke clues into the fact that certain behaviors from Noah in the past or present are not acceptable and/or do not demonstrate a healthy, loving relationship.
-- General Noah-is-wrong-for-Luke behavior, Reid's sheer awesomeness exposing Noah's many faults, etc.
Writers are not restricted to just these examples, of course. Noah doesn't have to be the main character -- he doesn't even have to be present. But he (and his douchetasticness) has to play some kind of important role in the fic.
Writers, please use a beta or at the very least make sure your fic has been proofread for typos.
Two examples of the sort of fic we're talking about are rhiannonhero's Noah's Big Damn Movie and bigboobedcanuck's An Eye for an Eye.
Vidders! Your challenge is to use clips to illustrate all of the ways that Luke and Noah were not right for each other. Feel free to use clips going back to Noah's first introduction onto the show. We are happy to entertain vids that only demonstrate how Luke and Noah are not right together, but since the focus of this challenge is also to indicate how Luke and Reid are right together, feel free to use clips that show how Reid makes Luke happy when Noah didn't, that Reid makes Luke smile like the sun while Noah made him cry, and other such illustrations of our main theme.
You can use music or just clips from the show as it may be hard to really show his douchiness without the dialogue. Perhaps a compendium of Noah's greatest douchey lines?! Two awesome examples of the sort of vids we're looking for are Wanja SC's The Truth and Nicole Rene Carpenter's According to You.
We're having a little fun hating on Noah here, but loving Luke and Reid together is our goal at the end of the day.
