Welcome to the 2003 Smallville Holiday Story/Manip Challenge. All stories were required to be minimally 1,000 words and have a holiday or winter theme. Participants were allowed a choice of pairings, or a one character/anyone pairing with a restriction. Along with these, they also were allowed a prompt. There were three manips and twenty stories submitted for the challenge. You'll see several "Make Your Guess" links on some of these pages--ignore them; we had a guessing contest last year and now that's over.
