Kuroshitsuji Fanworks Circus: Ring 3

By the time you complete the second ring, your muscles are trembling and your heart is pounding. You can still feel the imprint of the tight rope against the soles of your feet. The whispers and laughter of the crowd has died away. The circus folk are watching you now with something resembling respect. Is this it? Will they allow you into their midst, let you complete your task for the queen?

"Amazing!" Joker exclaims. "I didn't reckon you'd make it across!" Then he frowns, giving you a speculative glance. "But not so fast . . ."

Your task is to choose one of the following three images, and use it as inspiration for a fanwork. Feel free to interpret these images however you'd like. When you post your fanwork, please mention or link to the image you used as inspiration.

Remember -- you must first complete an entry for Ring 1 and Ring 2 in order to enter Ring 3! If you have not entered any of the challenges yet and want to enter this one, you have a busy couple of weeks ahead of you!

For this challenge, a fanwork can be:
★ Fic (between 500 and 10,000 words)
★ Fanart (a complete piece, more than a sketch or preview)
★ Fanvids (over 30 seconds long)
★ Podfic (over 5 minutes long, with the permission of the author)
★ Icons (a batch of at least 5 icons with a unifying theme)
★ Fanmixes (a minimum of 5 songs + a cover)

Fic entries do not need to be beta'd, but they should be relatively free of grammar and spelling mistakes.

You can submit your entry in one of three ways:
★ Post your entry (or a link to it) in [community profile] blackbutler or [livejournal.com profile] phantomhive. Make sure you mention the challenge somewhere in your entry.
★ Post to the Kuroshitsuji Fanworks Circus collection on AO3.
★ Post a link to your work as a comment here, or at Tumblr through the ask box at http://fanworks-circus.tumblr.com/

The final ring closes on Friday, September 5th at 11PM PST! Good luck!
