Majah: There's always next LC!

Susan_Y: Part 2 partially depends on Part 1.. but Part 2 would have involved a butler telling you I was in another castle and then you having to ride a gokart there.

The kart gives away the inspration for this subtask colgate. (And you explicitly reveal it later in the thread).

Now i'm wondering how many of the others would have become easier to identify by the second task...

I really wish more of the extended tasks were claimed, because I wanted to find out all the references. These are the ones I figured out: notify

You've learned of Cornelia's capture by some insidious foe. You see a castle in the distance. Make your way to the castle and search for her inside.

^ The original Mario

Cornelia Xaos wrote:
You set out one morning to wonder through the forest with a travelling companion. You come across a small lake hidden within the trees and a strange woman standing nearby. She turns to you and asks you for your help in exchange for an item of power. Find her at the water's edge and receive a gift, but be wary of its cost!

^ Possible a Lady in the Lake / King Arthur reference

Cornelia Xaos wrote:
It's another year and you're finally back off to school, leaving your horrible aunt and uncle behind. While riding the train you see that girl, Cornelia, who everyone calls crazy. She's seated alone, reading. She looks rather puzzled at something. Speak to her and ask her what's on her mind.

^ Obvious Harry Potter reference was obvious

Cornelia Xaos wrote:
Everything was supposed to be alright.. you and Cornelia were just going to play around and explore your Uncle's house.. but you bumped into him and he showed some.. strange rings.. and enticed Cornelia to take one. When she did.. she vanished! Now you'll have to do the same to follow her! Find a yellow ring and follow her to world's unknown!

^ Narnia, or more accurately Book 1: The Magician's Nephew

Cornelia Xaos wrote:
Another day has come and everything seems all too familiar.. A strange darkness roils over the land and you have dreams, dreams that almost seem like visions of a princess in peril. She seems so familiar.. this Cornelia.. With the danger escalating, and nothing better to do, make your way through the darkness to the castle at the center of the land.

^ The Legend of Zelda

There seems to be a few references to zombie-esque games, maybe a couple of action movies. I wonder if Cornelia would tell us what they all are, so we can groan at how obvious it should have been kiekeboe

Obliverum: It's up to the next host's discretion! You can copy the contents of the first post of my LC if you need something to build off of, or you can write the rules from scratch. Past hosts, like me, are also here if you have any questions.. but don't spoil any task plans with me as I'd like to participate!

Susan_Y: Heh. The format for the parts was supposed to be:
  1. Obvious plot reference.
  2. Unexpected twist
  3. Wrap up the loose ends and conclude

I wanted to subvert peoples' expectations with Part 2.

Eilatan (et al.): Here's the tasks again with their sources:

And I had a few on backup in case we got more than 15 participants and everyone did the extended task.

The extended tasks were a cool idea. but it seems they were too hard for most people to do. (Obliverum managed to do one, but she also had a high score in the previous LC).

#110:  Author: GenghisKhan PostPosted: Sat 20 Apr, 2019
Thank you so much Cornelia for hosting :D

And congratulations to Obliverum for winning this LC ^^

#111:  Author: Cornelia Xaos PostPosted: Mon 22 Apr, 2019
Susan_Y: The extended task is usually harder as they're worth quite a bit more than the standard tasks. Sometimes they can be simple.. and I admit this one was probably more difficult than past ones as it involved summoning someone and being in a specific place for some of the subplots.

GenghisKhan: You're welcome! And thank-you for participating! :D

  • You've known Cornelia for a long time as she's a good friend of your cousin's. She's coming to town after a long trip away. There's supposed to be a celebration later, but that will have to wait as she seems to be running a bit behind schedule. Find Cornelia as she enters town and let her know what you think of her tardiness!
    Source is Lord of the Rings.

  • Cornelia's gone missing! She's stormed out and away into the night. It's been a day now and you don't know where she is or how she's feeling. It's also especially cold out... The townsfolk say she ran off towards the mountains. Put on your parka and make your way towards the mountain and see if you can't find her.
    Source is Frozen.

notify I honestly can't believe I didn't notice these two.

I feel like I have to hand in my nerd card now kiekeboe

Thanks again for running this LC, Cornelia. And Congrats to Obliverium for winning! applaus

The end of July is fast approaching...

Seriously, if "the curse of the LC" has struck again and Obliverum is too busy to host the next challenge, I'm sure someone else would be able to volunteer.

#116:  Author: Koal44 PostPosted: Mon 29 Jul, 2019
I m also ready to join the next LC. I hope Obliverum still wants to host it :D

#117:  Author: Cornelia Xaos PostPosted: Wed 31 Jul, 2019
I was gonna message Obliverum and she if she still wanted to.. but it looks like she hasn't been on the forum since May. I'm thinking about giving her a half a month or so before offering the torch to the runner up (you Koal ).

#118:  Author: Obliverum PostPosted: Wed 31 Jul, 2019
ive been lurking around! maybe its time to get started, thanks for giving me a kick Cornelia smile

sometimes when life is stressful I fall into lurker mode.

if someone else is in the mood to host im happy to be a participant, but i do have some ideas im excited about too grin

#119:  Author: Cornelia Xaos PostPosted: Thu 01 Aug, 2019
It's alright! We were all just getting a little anxious. I know I'm excited to see what you have planned.. especially since my brain is throwing LDs at me.

EDIT: Also.. how is your last post today, but your Last Visit was on the sixth of July? notify

#120:  Author: Koal44 PostPosted: Thu 01 Aug, 2019
And I m exciting to start, especially since my brain sends ZERO LDs to me :D
I seriously need motivation haha

Now I m also wondering about the discrepancy between your last visit and last post :o
