July 2017 SWG Challenge Just an Old-Fashioned Love SongDuring the month of July, fanworks creators around the world celebrate love. July has been reserved for honoring both the femslash and slash genres. Half of the world is sultry with summer heat, and half of the world seeks nearness and warmth to banish winter's chill.

For this month's challenge, you will use a popular love song as a prompt to inspire a fanwork about romantic or sexual love. You will choose your own prompt from the list of love songs below. More than one participant may choose the same song, and you may use any aspect of the song--the title, all or part of the lyrics, the mood or style of the music, or the music video--or any combination!--to inspire your response. You don't need to claim a prompt or comment or do anything but create your fanwork! Any pairing or poly relationship is acceptable for the challenge.

Our friends at Tolkien Femslash Week will be hosting their challenge as well, and as always, feel free to combine our challenge with your work for their challenge. If you do, please make a note in the summary or story notes so that we can award stamps accordingly.

Since I am a day late in posting the challenge, the due date for stamps will be 11 August 2017.. Late stories are always welcome but will not receive a stamp.

If you're new to our challenges, check out the full challenge guidelines here.

It looks very cool! The links don't seem to be working, though?

The "Africa" song has working links, it seems. Which ones did you check out?

A few of them -- I think it was Mamma Mia, Gravity, and We Belong.

Only 3 of these work for me here, but they're all fine on LJ. Odd. I'd expect it to be the other way round.

Ah yes, I've had that happen to me too! Thanks for the quick fix.

Never mind if you know this already, but you can turn off that feature if you go into AutoCorrect Options under Spelling and Grammar.
