I am hoping for a fusion sort of title. Such as, "Hogwart's meets Trump University." :)
I would rather look stupid today than be stupid tomorrow.

I'm hoping the theme will just be AWESOME. As in, write an AWESOME story.

That would be a horrifying topic idea for anyone with any amount of self doubt, so I really hope not!

Whoa, let's keep the depression out of the contest and not ever include any living politicians in the topic (this coming from the resident cannibal-fan).

How about "Hannibal goes to Hogwart"? Or Westworld meets with Jurassic park? Something less stressful? xD

Yay! More stories and newbies :D

Thread definitely open until tonight, and then I guess everyone will be in except @Lanko and I have to wait some more ;)

Sorry, hectic month, so I'm not going to be in this time. Heh, I need to remember to warn people when this happens, as when days 1st and 2nd approach I'm sure people think I'm actually starting/finishing it  ::)
Slow and steady wins the race.

So ok, I'll close the thread now.

@D_Bates, do you still want to do anything to your story?

Guess so, since there haven't been edits yet. (Besides the one ten minutes after posting.)

New contest is up! :)

I am done, thanks!

Not as edited as I like, but nothing ever is. But at least I got a couple of the more annoying things.

Maybe they can just add my Ebola story but then no one vote for it since it's not fantasy

I have to say: this is a really great set of stories.
Lots of variety, lots of interesting takes.

Now I have to vote...  >:(

I think we should have

number of votes = number of stories-1 (just to be a 'proper vote' ;))
