Picture It Challenge



Here's a simple challenge:
Choose one (or more) of the photos below and write a Christmas story that in some way includes the picture you picked; make it the basis of a scene or the focus of the story, whichever you prefer. A child(ren) must be a character in your story and your story must contain an X-Files character.

With the multiple picture groupings, you can pick one of the photos or use all of the photos in the group for your story (for example: #4 can be involve the family dog, the family cat, or the family cat and dog).

The minimum word count is 500 words, but there is no maximum...whatever length you feel you can handle between now and December 24th, basically.

Any genre, from sweet family fic to horror or crossover, is acceptable. Any timeline too, from pre-XF to future fic. Ready?
