Themed Fan Fiction Contest

Wed Apr 30, 2014, 4:23 PM

:new: UPDATE May 15th - Just under a week left on this! All entries are due by 11:59 PM PST on May 21st, 2014. Any questions, please ask!

I enjoyed the Topsy Turvy Fan Fiction Contest so much, I decided to have more short fan fiction contests! :omgomg: I plan do one each month for the rest of my Volunteer term. Let the writing begin! 

This month, the contest revolves around themes. I'll provide a list of ideas, and you choose one or more of them to include into your story. You do not need to include the sentence word for word, just its concept. Example: if you choose "Sins of the father," for your theme, you can write a fanfic about the crimes of a character's father coming to haunt that person.

Themes to choose from:

  • "Abandoned Places"
  • "All He/She Wanted Was a Cup of Coffee"
  • "A Beautiful Day for an Apocalypse"
  • "Betrayal"
  • "Buried and Forgotten"
  • "Everyone Thought He/She Was Dead"
  • "He/She Never Wanted to Go Back"
  • "Most Welcome News"
  • "Sins of the Father"
  • "Snow in Summer"
  • "Stacked Odds"
  • "That's When It Exploded"
  • "An Unwanted Gift"
  • "Wrongfully Punished"
Including more than one theme may serve as a tie-breaker, if those ideas are incorporated well. (It's pointless to include a multiple themes if the story suffers for it.) Please read the full rules for all details.

Rules: Dancing :la:  

  • Use one or more of the themes provided above in your story.
  • The use of additional themes beyond the first may be used as a tie-breaker.
  • Star! List your theme(s) in your artist comment section or in the deviation.
  • Your themed short fan fiction must be specifically written for this contest and submitted after April 30th, 2014.
  • The contest will run until 11:59 PM (Pacific Time) May 21th, 2014.
  • It is a fan fiction contest. All entries must be fan fiction. All fandoms are acceptable.
  • All entries must follow deviantART submission guidelines! (No porn.)
  • Either prose or poetry are acceptable.
  • Maximum word count: 1,000 words. This is meant to be a short contest. I'm not looking for any epics. =P
  • OCs are allowed but cannot be the main characters.
  • Entries will be judged on proper grammar use, how engaging and entertaining they are and how well they incorporate their chosen theme(s).
  • Please note me Note your entry with the title "Themed Fan Fiction Contest" with your entry before the above deadline.
  • Mention this contest and link this journal somewhere in your deviation or artist comments.
  • :new: One entry per deviant please.
  • Have fun! (Yeah, this one's not enforceable. :giggle:)

Prizes: likepoints 

  • 1st Place - 1,000 Points 
  • 2nd Place - 500 Points 
  • 3rd Place - 250 Points

When will you expect to be having the final announcement on the results of the contest? 
SingingFlames Featured By Owner May 24, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Hopefully today, perhaps tomorrow! :D
Naktarra Featured By Owner May 24, 2014   Writer
Wow, well that's good; I worried because some contests take like two months and waiting that long can be agony. XD

Can it be a cliffhanger? (I have a story, but I don't think I can end it.  Plus, I can probably write it out just in time for the deadline, which is about five hours away:D)

As long as the ending is a logical breaking point (and not just some random spot). :)
Feraligatr66 Featured By Owner May 21, 2014
Ok, thank you :)
