M. Pajaro inspired. Rare light bulb from me.

Write Karr's story. From activation to storage room.

Whew, that has the potential to have some pretty large replies in it. I'd have to think about that one...

Doesn't have to be posted here in full. Simply written, placed on the author's website and the link placed here. *shrugs* I could probably come up with a good one, but I'm working on a different fic at the moment, it'll have to wait.

I'm gonna have to think about that one. Still. I mean to write for it, of course... my muse is off having a brain fart somewhere.

The potential here is absolute novel length!

We're talking about a character whose beginnings are basically hinted at, a "childhood" who can be reworked a hundred ways over and a future left untainted. After all, whose to say that the storage room HAS to be KARR's deactivation by Wilton's hands.

If it sparks, this WILL make for some great readings...

Nicely done, KRR, but, one little nitpick: KARR didn't know about KITT before deactivation.

But otherwise, very very nice!

He might've known of the other car, but just not its name. Thanks for the quick reply!

Uh, no, it is pretty obvious in TDR that he didn't know of KITT's existance. He thought he was the only one, and when Tony and Rev brought up KITT, he got rather testy about it, and then called him a production line copy. He even claims "I am one of a kind"

No real biggie, just a note. Once again, fan fic writers can be the most fickle when it comes to canon.

And you are welcome!

Oh my. ::shakes head laughing:: I love his conclusions. And some of the phrasing is just perfect. 'I first processed data' 'I didn't even harm anyone'. Very self-absorbed thought process too -- perfect for KARR.

Great minds think alike. I've just been reading the Trust Doesn't Rust novelisation and been thinking about Karr's history and how good a story that would make. Hmmm, maybe I should have a go myself...

Ditto - only it's 're-reading', in my case. An interesting line to follow or discard, from the novelisation - KARR was being built in California. When the government tried to muscle in on KARR's development, with an eye to utilising the vehicle for defence purposes, Wilton Knight packed up the whole she-bang and moved back to the Knight Estate in Nevada.

[img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] AWESOME! I have always felt bad for him. I loved how Karr knew he was misunderstood. I t was also great how he was nice deep down in side,just with alot of resentment and anger. NICE JOB!!!!!

Nice short, KRR, pretty funny in a couple of places.

By all means people, have a go. I intend to make my own response, just not at the moment. I have a simple, one-track mind that can really only handle one fic at a time.

Since I am being organizational again, I have included this Fic Challenge under the Knight Foundation Archives for the time being. I will link out to those who are hosting their own, and host those that end up posted here, unless Rusti would rather do that, (let me know, ok?) to keep them nice and cozy and archived. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

I just want to make sure that all the wonderful fic has every chance it possibly can.

Okay...I got one up for this. I only have a Geocities site so the link will have to be a copy and paste...otherwise it won't work.

Hmm, even copying and pasting isn't working for some reason. *pout*

That's because I goofed up the page. Hopefully, if Geocities wants to behave, this one will work [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img]

Shadow, you do realize that I will now ride your a-double-s until you get some fic posted beyond your little roleplay club.

Excellent Shadow. I love the twist about Wilton lying -- nice touch. And 'wooden people' causing his demise. You definitely built a case for his future behavior.

Yay. I finally managed to get around to finishing my entry for this challenge. I am housing it over at my site, and I already announced it in another thread, but I figured it was only right to bring this one back up to the top since it inspired me to write it. It is a little longer than the rest (short story? me? never.) But I do hope that you all enjoy it.
