Hi, Lisa! The answer to your question is both. Next Friday morning you will receive an email assigning you a group number. At 10 pm EDT that night, the prompts for each group will go live on the Superchallenge page.

This, and other things you might be wondering, can be found in the FAQ portion of the Superchallenge page.

A sword-fighting librarian? Really?!?

Man... that's rough.

Anybody not in group two willing to swap beta reads for this?

I wouldn't let my library books become overdue! Confused

Dolph Lundgren was a librarian while going to school, he also sword fought/fenced in the Olympics at the same time.  Hysterical fiction category for 2000 Alex.

Another actor that used swords for a living but was only dating librarians, was Charlie Sheen.

I feel deep nostalgia, as this prompt brings me back to Weird Al's Conan the Librarian, from UHF... LOL

And Andrew, I MIGHT be able to swap betas. Group 1, here. But it all depends on how fast I can get my entry done, since I have yet to put one word down and I got tons of stuff to do still, today...

HOLY MOLY. 

That was like a mouse giving birth to an elephant. 

If anyone wants to swap stories now that we're all done and dusted, let me know. Really curious to see where everyone else went with their prompts. I daresay all three sets were equally insane.
