Black Cat Challenge

This is an al la carte challenge. Please pick at least one element from each row to incorporate into your fic.

  • Halloween morning
  • Halloween afternoon
  • Halloween night
  • An X-files character's child
  • An X-files character's grandchild
  • An original character child
  • An X-files character as a child

Your challenge is to use your picks from A, B, and C, to craft a fic with this basic storyline: On Halloween (a) the child (b) encounters (c) a black feline.

What happens after that? Something sweet? Something funny? Or something scary? Tell us!

If you wish, you can double up on any of the choices.

Please send your fic, or a link to it on AO3, FFnet, Tumbler etc, to by October 31. Wips okay for linked stories. No word count requirements.
