First to the moderators, if this isn't allowed, I'm sorry, but I didn't see where it said it wasn't. Delete it, or ask me and I'll remove it. I honestly did check, but I could have overlooked something somewhere. I also fully accept that this is not an excuse and take the blame that is due me if I've failed to read something important.
Now to the rest of my friendly comm mates! :-) Many of you are probably familiar with the concept of land comms where the members compete in various activities to see who can gain the most points or reach a goal line first. I thought it was a really neat concept when I first came across it but quickly found myself bored with the art competitions. It's the fan fic I want, and all fan fic that I've geared this new land comm after.
There are five teams -- one for comics, one for movies, one for TV shows, one for cartoons and anime, and one for books --, and each team will be striving to reach 5,000 points first. Challenges will be both weekly (drabbles/short fics -- from 100 to 1,000 words) and monthly (longer fics -- 1,000 words and longer). Other things may also be done to earn points as we go along.
The URL is http://community.livejournal.com/fanficland, but there is a simple form that must be filled out before memberships can be approved. The form is posted in the first message on the board and should be answered in a comment left to that message. Please do not reply to this post if you are interested but post over at Fan Fic Land if you are as this is the only time I plan on bothering this wonderful comm with my own comm.
I hope to see at least some of you there! Thanks to the mods for this chance to share. Thank you all for taking the time to read this post and for all the talent, work, and effort you already put into making the world of fan fic a bigger, brighter, and better place for us all!
Welcome to Wishes for Kisses, the Wishes for Kisses Fanworks Challenge community! Challenge rules follow.

While you may reply to a single challenge post multiple times, you may only make your own challenge post after replying to each challenge post one time, and only if you produce your kiss featuring characters you have not already used. It doesn't matter if someone else has already produced a kiss featuring those characters, what's important is whether you have already used those characters.

Community rules are simple: no flaming, no off-topic posts, and let the mod handle any problems that may arise.
Another round of the Wishes for Kisses Fanworks Challenge is now complete. Thank you to all who participated! We had some great kisses posted, and it was good to see even more new fandoms represented.
Thanks to a number of other challenges taking place with due dates in April, the next round of Wishes for Kisses will likely not begin until May, that lusty month. *G* I'll make an announcement here when we're ready to kick things off again.
Thank you again to everyone who contributed both requests and kisses!
Konzen/GoujunWritten For: ranaloreWordcount:
300 (A French Kiss)Author's Notes:
I had a lot of fun rereading Gaiden so I could write this. Sadly, my betas had gone to bed by the time I finished this. Any mistakes are mine and mine alone. Feedback is more than welcome, be it comment or crit.
Konzen wondered if dragons always had lips that felt like they would burn their lovers. Goujun was subject to the laws of Heaven, so Konzen knew he wouldn’t die from the fire. Was it crazy for him to compare it to that? It was more cliché, but Konzen couldn’t give a damn at the moment.
He wished he remembered how it happened. He knew that the hallway was a dangerous place to do this. Neither one would – this was a bold move that Kenren might try to pull. But Kenren’s lips were for Tenpou only, and Konzen knew by instinct that it wouldn’t feel like this.
They were both men of duty – men devoted to their jobs. Konzen hated the paperwork, denied that he minded caring for the monkey, and hated not knowing what was going on. There was something happening in Heaven. Goujun knew more than he. Goujun was not one to be questioned if he was bored with his job.
The kiss was broken; Konzen gasped. Heaven was always warm, but as air traveled back into his mouth, it felt almost cold. The contrast in temperatures of cold seeping into heat made him light-headed. Did all dragons kiss like this, or was it only kings?
Konzen recognized the swagger in the footsteps approaching from around the corner. Goujun did as well, and stepped out of Konzen’s personal space. It was then, and only then, that he felt like he could finally breathe. And sure enough, it was Kenren who appeared a moment later.
Kenren is a General because he earned the position, even if his behavior has threatened to get him fired more than once.
Silence, then. “I’ll expect that document that we discussed by the end of the day, Konzen Doji.”
Konzen nodded. “Of course.”
Sanzo/Hakkai with bonus Hakkai/GojyoWritten For: veleda_kWordcount:
300 (French kiss)Author's Notes:
Betaed by Eliza
. I was in an experimental mood.
The challenge in kissing Sanzo is that one cannot simply kiss Sanzo. One cannot approach him possessed of passion, and one certainly cannot approach him on a casual whim. One must strategize, while allowing for moods in which any approach at all is ill-advised, no matter how glorious Sanzo might have looked earlier when drawing his gun on youkai attackers and pulling the trigger precisely, ruthlessly, until there was nobody left to shoot. Except any fool who tried to kiss him in that moment, and while one cannot help being a fool on occasion, Gojyo is much more forgiving, so one tries to save those moments for him.
No, one must plan out kissing Sanzo as though planning a lesson for a bright but difficult student, and if one is no longer a teacher, one should get some use out of one's ghosts. So one plans, and prepares, and ignores Gojyo's opinion that planning misses the point. Gojyo, one is well aware, has not kissed Sanzo, and therefore his opinion on the matter is not exactly expert.
"You haven't kissed him yet, either," Gojyo points out, "but when you do, give him this."
Kissing Gojyo, or being kissed by him, is everything kissing Sanzo is unlikely to be. Except arousing. That's a trait one is certain both kisses would have in common.
Unfortunately, Gojyo's kiss causes one to completely forsake one's plan, so when one passes Sanzo's open door to see him reading the newspaper, one succumbs to the urge to go inside, go to him, take the cigarette from his mouth and taste him. His smoke and Gojyo's mingle in one's mouth, the combination is so intriguing that it takes a moment to register Sanzo hasn't pulled away.
One realizes one owes Gojyo an apology. A kiss should do.
An Important ReminderAuthor:
Kyou Kara MaouPairing:
Original King (Shinou)/Great Sage (Daikenja)Written For: veleda_kWordcount:
300 (A French Kiss)Author's Notes:
Takes place shortly after Soushu was sealed, 5000 years ago. Also, inspiration coming at 2AM is always an interesting thing, especially when I should be doing homework. Many thanks to orenda33
for betaing. Comments and criticisms appreciated.
"Shouldn't you be enjoying yourself, your majesty?" he asked. Upon victory against Soushu, Shinou said they should celebrate, and yet late that night the Daikenja found his maou making notes in a journal. Military reports. To-do lists. Daikenja wasn't at all surprised.
"Tomorrow we start building a nation, Daikenja," Shinou said. "There are several things that need my immediate attention."
Daikenja nodded, for it was true. Shinou had arisen as the Mazokus' leader for more than his power, and not a soul could deny that. "But what of yourself? Your people want you to have a good time too. You are the one who sealed Soushu, so that we might have a country."
Shinou gave his great sage a small smile. "A maou is a servant of the people. I have no regrets."
"Then the servant should follow the rules too, should he not?" Daikenja smiled back. "You told your soldiers to celebrate this evening. Will you break one of your first decrees?"
To that, Shinou laughed. "I am not surprised hearing that from you. What do you propose?"
Daikenja drew the tent flaps closed and tied them shut. "That both you and I obey the law, in our own way. You weren't specific when you said we should 'enjoy ourselves.'" He moved to sit across Shinou, and there was no protest when the journal and pen were taken away. With his writing hand freed, Shinou wove his fingers into black hair. The rest needed no prompting, they met halfway for the first of many kisses.
Daikenja knew that Shinou was right in his concern for the welfare of their country. But for now, the farthest reaching thought in Daikenja's mind was how he would have trouble brushing his hair in the morning. It was time for them to celebrate.

Kim Jaejoong/Park YoochunWritten For:
250 (Kiss)Author's Notes:
Audienced and betaed by Eliza
. Set during the shooting of "Hug." The thing about the ice cubes? True.
It's to share warmth more than anything else, of which there's not much after they've been sucking ice cubes all morning in the bitter February wind. Still, there's some, lurking in the crevices of Yoochun's mouth, and Jaejoong would chase it if Yoochun weren't giving it to him, unthinkingly, habitually. He's taken Yoochun's face between his cold hands, and Yoochun's retaliated by burrowing his own cold hands up the back of Jaejoong's jacket, pressing them against the small of Jaejoong's back with only the barrier of a too-thin shirt. But Yoochun pulls Jaejoong closer when he shivers, and so the hands are allowed to stay.
Yoochun tastes like mint; they haven't been allowed to eat since being brought to the set. Food generates heat generates steam, so all they get is the ice between takes, to keep their breath from showing. They all suck it dutifully, but already Jaejoong knows how little Yoochun likes the cold. He's not fond of it himself. So he hunts Yoochun down while they wait for the director to decide how to frame the next shot, while Changmin and Junsu bounce around the set to keep warm, and Yunho gets a costume adjustment.
Yoochun's withdrawn beyond the circle of equipment and crew, still a little shy with them, a little uncertain. Jaejoong knows he'll get over that, but for now Jaejoong doesn't mind going to him. They can kiss out of everybody's way, Yoochun's soft skin chilled against his palms, bracing against his back.

Forever and a DayAuthor:
Homura/RinreiWritten For: iapetusneumeWordcount:
250 (kiss)Author's Notes:
I recommend listening to schmoopy Broadway musical love songs while reading this. After all, that's how I wrote it.
Even as he leans down to kiss Rinrei, Homura tells himself to stop, to pull back. He should walk far away. If he doesn’t, he’ll ruin her life
But before he can leave, Rinrei has tilted her head up, and is kissing him, gentle and shy. Her lips are soft and warm, and Homura can’t remember ever being this happy. He wraps his arms around her, drawing her closer. She runs her fingers through his hair.
After what feels like both a second and an eternity, she pulls away. She looks down, but Homura can still see the blush on her cheeks. He opens his mouth to say something, to apologize, to beg her forgiveness, but she speaks before he can.
“That…that was nice.” She giggles, embarrassed. “I suppose that’s a silly thing to say.”
“No,” he says quickly, “you’re right. It was nice.” He’s smiling now, a grin that most would think him incapable of.
She takes his hands in hers. “Homura…will you stay with me forever?”
He should tell her no. He shouldn’t give her false hopes. He should explain the danger, the risk.
But then he realizes that she knows all that. Rinrei doesn’t want truth; she wants something to believe in.
“Yes, I’ll stay with you forever. I’ll never leave you.”
She sighs happily and hugs him. “Kiss me again?” she asks.
He kisses her deeply and passionately, much more sure of himself than before.
They may not have forever, but they do have right now.
