Default The /ggFTW Writing Challenge -- Vol 3!

/ggFTW Writing Challenge Vol. 3!

Remake of this:

Volume 1 can be found here: /forum/literature/74...challenge.html
Volume 2 can be found here: /forum/literature/78...e-vol-2-a.html

A long time ago, Cath and I both got a crazy idea at the same time: To make basically a fiction quilt. While many stepped up to the plate, many also lost steam. I figured it deserved another go, so we made it happen, with a decent amount of success. And now, we bring you Volume 2, with new promps, and previous contributors can write for us again!

So here it is! A second coming of the writing challenge!

New in this version:

30 prompts now to give more people a chance to participate
Old unclaimed prompts from older versions may be claimed here too.

  • We will provide a table filled with "prompts" or a random assortment of words.
  • Claim a prompt that inspires you, and start writing!
  • Post your piece, read each other's work, and enjoy the sheer pleasure of reading and writing.

Err... Come again?
Anyone can pick numbers/prompts from the table below, and pledge to write something (short story, fanfic, poetry, essay, novel, etc) using that prompt. Each time people post their pieces, I'll link the submission into the table until all the prompts are used, like sewing together a patchwork quilt.
  • Original pieces or fanfiction (game/TV/movies/etc) will do. Game fanfics are encouraged, though, since we're a gaming community.
  • Any genre (action/adventure/horror/romance/humor/etc)
  • Any length or format (just use common sense; 1 sentence is NOT a valid submission)
  • Each person can claim a max of 5 prompts; first come, first served. To claim a prompt, reply here with your choice. (If you decide to back out, please leave a note here so that someone else can adopt your abandoned claim.)
  • 1 prompt = 1 piece, although you can get 5 prompts and use them to write a 5-chapter story
  • Collaborations and co-writing are encouraged.
  • We're not grammar Nazis since we're doing this for fun, but do bother to use Word's spellcheck feature.
  • ENJOY IT. We're not competing or anything. ^o^

Posting Your Finished Work
Please fill up the form below. Be sure to include the link to your fic (new thread or your MMOG blog). Thanks!
