Challenge 12: Look What I Drew!


Draw a picture that your favorite character would draw when they were a child. (Or a picture that they would draw now, if they are a child in canon.)


- Example (by ariestess at onceuponaland):

- You don't have to use actual crayons and paper, you can draw in Paint or in any other graphic program.

- The drawing can be a gift for another character, or it can be something the child character draws for themselves.

- It can be as serious or as cracky as you want.

- If you enter more than one picture, you can use the same character or different characters.

- Post your entry as a comment to your team thread or as a separate post elsewhere (such as keepers_log or your own lj). Post in your team thread using this form:


30 points for one drawing (up to 3)

+ 1 point for using a sig tag

Total: 30-91 points

Due Date: Thursday, June 18th, 18:00 UTC (Countdown clock here; Time converter here)

Challenge 11: Lighthouse Social


In the comments (outside of the team threads) talk to other lighthouse_the members about ANYTHING. Ask questions, make new friends, squee, flail, commiserate, ramble about your fandoms... :D


- A comment that counts for points needs to have at least three words, even if you post a picture/gif. There is no maximum length. (Posting shorter comments not for points is totally okay.)

- You're more than welcome to keep playing after you get full points! :)

- If your conversation topic is nsfw or potentially triggering (which includes COVID-19), please start your comment with a warning. It only applies to comments that start the conversation - if you reply to a comment with a warning you don't need to warn again.

- Link your comments in your team thread using this form:


2 points per comment (it doesn't matter if it's a new comment or a reply to someone else), up to 25 comments

+ 1 point for a sig tag when you link your comments

Total: 2-51 points

Due Date: Wednesday, June 17th, 18:00 UTC (Countdown clock here; Time converter here)

Challenge 10: Youngest and Oldest


Make a graphic with at least 2 pictures of your favorite character: at least 1 picture of the youngest canon version of them, and at least 1 picture of the oldest canon version of them.


- You can use any kind of fandom that has pictures/screencaps: tv shows, movies, comic books, games, etc.

- You can make any kind of graphics larger than an icon - tumblr graphics, wallpapers, picspams, etc.

- If you make more than one graphic, you need to use different characters for each of them.

- If it's a linear show/movie/etc., you simply use pictures from the character's first scene and last scene (or most recent scene, if the canon isn't over yet).

- If the character has childhood flashbacks, you use those as the youngest. (For example for Emma Swan you would use a picture of her as a newborn.)

- If there are flashforwards or alternate realities where the character is older than they are "currently", you use those as the oldest.

- Use spoiler cuts for big spoilers (use your best discretion to decide what they are).

- Post your entry as a comment to your team thread or as a separate post elsewhere (such as keepers_log or your own lj). Post in your team thread using this form:


20 points for one graphic (up to 4)

+ 1 point for using a sig tag

Total: 20-81 points

Due Date: Monday, June 8th, 18:00 UTC (Countdown clock here; Time converter here)
