Title: The Cure pt 2
Prompt: #32 Doctor Who - The Doctor (Nine) encounters some alien sex pollen.  Rose and Jack help cure him - without sex.
A/N: this proved to be harder than I thought, but a lot of fun...one wouldn't imagine the number of cures I came up with before settling on this one.  Thanks for your patience and double thanks to my wonderful betas  dameruthand nightrider101.

Cave of Knowledge
Prompt#3:Two characters are trapped in some sort of magical/highly technological space, and the only way to escape is to have sex. They do, but it remains just sex, and is preferably very awkward.
Summary: During a vacation in Egypt Ginny and Hermione sneak away from a guided tour.

Notes: This probably barely qualifies as gen. Nothing is graphically depicted, but enough adult situations are alluded to that I'd have to rate it R. I tried to make it as gen as I possibly could given the prompt, hopefully I succeeded. (Also in my time zone I posted this on time.)

Title: Grey Skies
Author: Bella (bella_evergreen)
Prompt #6: Two characters are trapped or stranded together for an extended period of time. They don't fill the time by having sex.
Summary: If Harry could have predicted when and where he would die, he wouldn’t have picked a falling Muggle airplane.
Pairings: None
Characters: Harry Potter, Kingsley Shacklebolt, other canon characters.
Author’s Thanks: I would like to give profuse thanks to the three wonderful people who made this story what it is. Thanks go to Rakina (rakina ), Leander (transitiongodin ), and Shadowfighter (shadowfighter ) – betas and brit-pickers. *hugs you all*
Author's Notes: This technically fits the fest in that they don't have sex, but it kind of misses the point in that they actually can't have sex. However, they wouldn't want to even if they could, so there.

In light of the fact that the unusually-gen challenge is about to end, I am sorry to say that I won't have anything to post before June 30th.

I claimed prompt #65 "Harry Potter: Harry and Draco both teach at Hogwarts. They don't end up together." and from the look of things the finished fic will have at least ten chapters. Two of which exist so far.
Since I have decided against posting it as a WIP, all I can do is promise that it will get written and that I will post it here when it is done.

And to not come completely empty-handed (and to prove that yes, there is a fic), here is a brief excerpt from chapter two:

You now have under one month until the unusuallygen fanfiction challenge ends. (Although if you finish late, please do post the fic anyway.)

There are still quite a lot of prompts left unclaimed, if you fancy having a go at one. Remember, the fics must be gen, and over 2,000 words long (there's no upper limit).

If you do not wish to join the community, post your story elsewhere on the internet, and comment on one of my posts with a link.

Since we're now half-way through the challenge I thought I'd just post a little reminder.

The "It's Usually Not Gen" challenge ends in two months time, on 30 June 2008.

You can post your fic at any time, you don't have to wait until the deadline.

Remember, fics must be at least 2,000 words long and gen.

There are still plenty of unclaimed prompts available. View the list if you're interested.

I made a banner for the community in large and small versions.

And for journal pimping...

For the large banner, the code is:
