Author's Note: I couldn't help but continue on with the whole concept of CJ outing herself for Ainsley. Plus? I've never written smut for these two women yet. How sad is that? I took the first line of the poem, which is the same as the title, and the line "Got my girl and she's a wow" from the PJ Harvey song as my inspiration for the ficathon. And then there was celievamp's great prompt, too. *hee*

Rating: T
Word Count: 525

Challenge: majoritython, prompt ‘separation of church and state’
Summary: In some situations, one really has no choice.
A/N: To those who will recognise the title but aren’t sure where from (I know there'll be at least one!), it’s paraphrased from a lyric on the Epica album Consign to Oblivion. I thought it fit.

Fic: The Queen and the Soldier

Well, it's 3 June this side of the pond - not sure when the US gets there, but having for once managed to write the fic before the deadline, I don't aim to miss it! The prompt was "The Queen and the Soldier" which is apparently the title of a song by Suzanne Vega, and the story's gen. Thanks for organising the challenge, btw - enjoyed it.

Quick explanation: Gunnhild Mother of Kings ruled Norway, through her husband and sons, for over two decades in the 10th century. Depending on whom you believe, she was a clever, imperious woman or a nymphomaniac witch. Sagas tell two tales of her birth; she was either the daughter of King Gorm of Denmark, or of a Finnmark chieftain and brought up among the "Lapland witches". The custom of fosterage at the time makes it vaguely possible (if unlikely) to cobble both legends together. In 1835 a body exhumed from a peat bog was thought to be Gunnhild. In fact it was an Iron Age woman, but since sagas say Gunnhild too was buried in the bog, and peat does indeed preserve bodies, she may yet reappear...

Eleventh Hour

This is your official reminder that majoritython entries are DUE ON JUNE 3, which is less than one week away!

You can review your assignment here and the overall Process and Procedures here.

Comment with last-minute questions, defaults, requests for extensions, and so on. Otherwise, post away...

Campaign Season

Whether or not you're busily writing for the challenge right now, you can contribute to the cause! We'd like to invite anyone and everyone to post "briefs" on interesting women and/or people of color in politics (real or fictional) -- there's a fantastic collection of ideas in the brainstorming thread. Just make an entry here at majoritython telling us a little about someone. If you want, you can fill in this optional framework:

SUBJECT: [brief] Person's Name

Who are they?
When did they live?
What did they do?
Why should we love them?
Where can we find out more?

Marching Orders

Prompts have been assigned to everyone who signed up! You should have received them in a reply to your signup comment. Comments are screened, but you can still view your own with replies.

Please let us know here if you have questions or problems with your assignment. We did TRY to dole out prompts advisably so each one was at least distantly possible to match with your person.

Finally, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who contributed prompts! We ended up with a pretty perfect selection, and we couldn't have done it without you.

Posting is open on an ongoing basis! FINAL DEADLINE: June 3

Internal Memo

Just a reminder that SIGNUPS and PROMPTING close on April 12, which is only days away! If you were considering participating, don't miss your chance! The time is also ripe for any final efforts in pimping or cajoling your friends and fandoms.

In case you got here early, the "who counts?" section of the FAQ has been edited to read: "Our focus is civil government, excluding authorities whose position is solely military or solely staff. But the taxonomy is necessarily elastic, and in the case of borderline characters, if you plan to write about them in their capacity as political leaders, we wouldn't turn you down!"

Town Meeting [BRAINSTORM]

Got an idea of a character/person who is perfect for the MAJORITY RULES CHALLENGE-A-THON? Need an idea for a character/person to claim for the MAJORITY RULES CHALLENGE-A-THON? Got no idea about whether your character/person fits the challenge? You've come to the right post!

There are comment threads below categorized by general area; please put the fandom or country/institution as the title of your reply. Remember, the imperative is to list characters/people who are women and/or people of color who hold elected or appointed civil office, or who govern or rule a sovereign territory.

From here, you may want to proceed to challenge SIGNUPS, PROMPTS, or RULES.

Electoral College [PROMPTS]

Every government needs citizens, folks, and that's why we're inviting YOU to generate the prompts for the MAJORITY RULES CHALLENGE-A-THON. Contributing does NOT obligate you to participate in the challenge as a writer or artist, so what are you waiting for?!

Comment here with any number of provocations for fanworks in the form of a LINK to a song, poem, image, wiki entry, web page, video, etc.

Some examples:

Due to the large and often obscure ranks of characters/people covered by this challenge, it's impractical to take specific requests. We thus ask that you orient yourself to prompts that are fairly general, as in not tightly tied to particular fandoms or individuals. Be creative! If you have your heart set on a public figure, you can make the suggestion in the brainstorming post, or better yet claim them yourself.

PROMPTING CLOSES ON APRIL 12. Complete Process and Procedures.

The Challenge

Celebrating the possibility that (at long, long last) either a woman or a person of color will be the next American president by writing stories and producing icons, vids and graphics about people of color and women in positions of political power.
