So, after about six solid straight hours of reading and deliberating your entries, I've finally come to a (very strangled) conclusion. As I was watching the entries come though last month I already realised this would be an extremely difficult one to pick, as many of you are fantastic well-rounded writers in your own right. I never expected the quality of so many of these stories to be so good, so give yourself a pat on the back for making my life as a contest judge horribly difficult. ;P

In the end I came to three standouts, who on the whole each did a marvelous job. I couldn't possibly demote any to third place (which has no prize) and so, at equal second, are...

:iconjackgunski: The Travelling Bathroom by jackgunski
Awarded because yours was the only piece to make me giggle. Well, not just that; it was wonderfully abstract, and written in an incredibly engaging manner.

:iconluckyslugger: Death of a Cutter by LuckySlugger
For an insightful piece that tells the tale of a man in desperate need of redemption. Sir, your visuals are commendable.

The two of you will receive a prize of 200 points each (a bit extra than the original offering, because I'm feeling nice). Enjoy them!

Finally, the winner of this contest is...

:iconmertus: Voyant by Mertus
Perhaps I'm a little more fond and connected to objects than the average person, but this piece, centred around that little, delicate glass angel, really resonated well with me. Congratulations! :clap:

Well, that's the June contest over and done with. Congratulations to our winners and all entrants, the prizes shall be delivered in about two weeks time. Look out for more contests in the coming month - August shall boast not one but two contests to satiate your comedic and poetic needs!

This has been Pseudinymous, and I bid thee goodnight. :aww:


Congratulations guys, to everyone who entered! We have indeed made it to the goal of 30 entries, so congratulations again! A wonderful effort.

Now, if you shall excuse me, the judging shall commence. I shall need at most a week, and probably a bit of caffeine. ;) Good luck to all!


Well... as the title says, it's very close to the deadline for this contest. In fact, you have the weekend to submit your entries! First off, I would like to congratulate the community for generating the biggest response to a contest on record, with 24 entries! To those of you who haven't entered already or are sitting on work that's not quite done yet, let's see if we can push that up to a total of 30 entries by the end of the weekend, hmm? Because that would be pretty awesome. xD

Anyway, I'd like to honestly wish you all good luck. I'll try to give all your pieces an in-depth and thoughtful critique when the contest is over. Be happy, people. You've done an excellent job so far. :)


Writers! Time to stretch your short story-writing fingers, because this month it's a- a... well, a short story.

June the 30th, 2013. All submissions must be in the submission folder in time.

Your submission MUST begin with the sentence, "It broke." Whether this is part of the narrative or you have a character saying this is up to you. The sentence is deliberately ambiguous; what breaks, whether it is an abstract concept or a literal physical object, is all up to you. Points will be awarded for originality and clever or surprising uses of the prompt.

:bulletgreen: Must be a minimum of 800 words, and a maximum of 1,000.
:bulletgreen: You may only make one submission.

The folder you must submit to is called JUN 2013 CONTEST. Please submit before the due date, late submissions will not be considered.

As per usual these days, I'll be judging in the days after the contest closes.

1st Place: 3 Month Premium Membership
2nd Place: 100 Points

Good luck kids~ ;P Have some fun with this one, m'kay?

Hi everyone I'm cooking up a DragonBall fanfic, for those who're interested in the lore I have a very rough timeline set out but need it double and triple-checked for accuracy. If you're interested in having a look over it please message me and I'll send you link.

Hello all, just joined! I write mainly flash fiction (VIVA!) and short stories that pop into my head. Sometimes I even try novels (haven't been really successful there). Feel free to check out my work and let me know what you think :D

Any other contests?  Also, anybody got any of their stories to suggest to me, there's too many on the list for me to just pick.  xD

Hi everybody! Thanks for accepting me. I'm a writer of fanfics and sometimes short stories or poetry. I'd like that someone read my works and gives me an opinion.

Apologies in advance. I missed the part where it's only 2 deviations per day... I just joined about two minutes ago, and had a bit of an uploading spree. I promise it won't happen again!
