Jily!! #4 and you know I feel like #5 could fit with it too if you wanted. ;)

  These prompts were wonderful - and this story wrote itself. (It only took so long because between buying a house and planning a wedding, writing is hard and i’m in a constant state of exhaustion.) I hope you enjoy this! :)

“Well if this isn’t an unusual sight.”

Her flushed cheeks might’ve indicated she had just come into the pub from the cold February weather – but her hair was void of snowflakes so he knew she had been in the pub for some time before now.

“Evans,” he greeted, looking up from the torn piece of parchment as she approached his booth.

Hello, welcome to the Tumblr Monkees Awards Challenge! Over the next 12 days you’ll be given 24 questions to answer regarding the boys, the music, the show, and everything inbetween.

THE CHALLENGE WILL START 1ST APRIL!

HOW TO PLAY:

You can participate any which way you want! The best and most fun way will be to create your own post - just make sure you tag it with “#the monkees” or “#monkees awards”. Feel free to get deep with your answers and add pictures or videos or links or anything like that - this is about creating a discussion, after all!

If you’d like to vote but don’t want to make your own posts about it every day, you can message me OR reply to any of my ’#monkees awards’ posts.

If you miss a day out, don’t worry; I know not everyone can get online every day or has the time to respond right away, and if you want to answer 4 questions in one day then that is totally fine. I will announce the results a few days after the challenge ends, so you have until then to get your answers in.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
