Admin: the Bodice Ripper Challenge

Ah, good old bodice rippers. The innocent succumbing to lust, the masterful seducer, the charged scenes with heaving bosoms... who doesn't love a bit of that?

So write torrid seduction in Camelot or take the characters AU and play with ravishing regency rakes. Or turn it around and have the rake be ravished for a change (I'm all for equal opportunity ravishing).

Or twist the trope even more so the would-be masterful seducer is actually not that masterful after all and the apparently trembling virgin gives them what for.

And if you want to go for a literal interpretation and write about clothing getting ripped in whatever situation takes your fancy, that's totally welcome too!

The challenge will run until 22.00 GMT on 6th Feb 2010.

Edited as the cliche I originally referenced was culturally insensitive and I apologise for that.
