Unconventional Dragons



Hildegunst von Mythenmetz by Walter Moers, author of The City of Dreaming Books

If you hear "Dragon" you immediately have one or more images in your head. Terrific, huge, breathing fire, cunning, hoarding gold, etc... This month we want you to write about another dragon or dragons. Those that are not like dragons normally are. Whatever that may mean.

Rules:

1. This must be prose or poetry.
2. An unconventional dragon must play a major role in the story
3. Prose must be 500-1500 words long.
4. Poetry must be 100-750 words long.
5. One story per person or writing team (not per account).
6. You will be disqualified if you exceed the limits, full stop. That's why they're called limits.
7. Your entry can't be published somewhere else before.
8. This is a writing contest, not a "I have written something like this ten years ago" contest. So if you happen to have a story that fits one of the themes, I'd like it to have a mayor overhaul/edit. Work for it. ;)
9. Please add your story's word count and, if you have, your twitter handle.
10. Please put your story in [ spoiler ] tags to make the thread easier to handle. :) You can find them above the smileys under the B.
Bonus rule: We consider voting in a contest you're taking part in a given. Others take time and effort to read the stories - you should do the same. A small community like ours lives from reciprocity and this contest needs stories as much as votes. 

If you want so submit your story anonymously you can do so by sending it in a personal message to @xiagan.

Entry will close May 31st/June 1st, 2020 and voting will begin somewhere around the same time too.

Imprisoned



Prison by gregmks

Confined spaces. Locked in somewhere. No obvious way out, maybe even buried alive. Undeserved or justified, by happenstance or intention. In a labyrinth, a cell or their brain. No matter if Sci-Fi or Fantasy, fact is that your MC(s) are imprisoned somewhere, probably nasty. Get them out. Or not.

Rules:

1. This must be prose or poetry.
2. The main character(s) must be imprisoned somewhere.
3. Prose must be 500-1500 words long.
4. Poetry must be 100-750 words long.

1. This must be prose or poetry.
2. Die Geschichte oder das Gedicht muss in Deutsch geschrieben sein.
3. Prose must be 500-1500 words long.

Undercover gods



Mermaids and Losing Your Footing by Zephyri

You're a god. Or maybe not you, but certainly the character you will be writing about soon. Thing is, it's a tad boring in the pantheon/in Heaven/in Valhalla or any other place where gods usually dwell. Not because the place is boring per se but because everything gets boring after a while and eternity is a loooong while. Luckily you or your character or one of their buddies made humans a while ago and there is something about the little guys that's the opposite of boring.
Long story short, life's a lot better down (or up) on that blue planet and you/your character (and maybe even some of their friends) moved into the anthill that is human society. As a human, to not stand out, of course. This works most of the time. No restrictions on time or place.


Rules:

1. This must be prose or poetry.
2. The main character(s) have to be gods who live in a human society.
3. Prose must be 500-1500 words long.
4. Poetry must be 100-750 words long.
5. One story per person or writing team (not per account).

Monthly Writing Contest / What to do about the writing contest?
« on: February 03, 2020, 12:36:39 PM »
So Bea and I are a bit unsure how to proceed. The last months have been a struggle, participationwise. We had sometimes less than four stories (which is the unofficial minimum) and have kept themes open for two months to get at or above four stories.

Now Tardiness was open for two months (in the cold season no less, where people tend to be inside more and thus write more) and we still have only three stories.

Frankly, it's not motivating to make a new contest every month if the demand is not there. Sure, there are always up's and down's and slow spells from time to time but this feels like a long one.

But maybe we do something wrong? Who knows?

It'd be great if only former or actual participants or users who want to take part in the contest vote in the poll. The opinion of readers, while greatly valued, may skew the results and it's the writers whose opinion we need.

Arch Enemies



Bush Warriors by LockedBox

Only a few weeks until Christmas, the celebration of love and family, is upon us. So this is a good time to write about two people who absolutely hate each other. We're not talking rivals, we want arch enemies. She's his nemesis and he is hers. No sacrifice is too great to bring him/her down and it doesn't matter if the whole world burns.

This month we want you to write about an irresolvable conflict. You decide the scale. Could be generals with their armies, could be Suzie from next door (who is of course a witch in training because this is a fantasy forum ;)).


Rules:

1. This must be prose or poetry.
2. The main characters have to be arch enemies.
3. Prose must be 500-1500 words long.
4. Poetry must be 100-750 words long.

School



A day in Hogwarts by Noshiba-Photographe

It's the start of the school year in most places and Bea rightfully noticed that we didn't have a related theme yet!
(Apprentices is the closest one I think.)

The most famous school in fantasy is of course Hogwarts. Pratchett's Unseen University, Brakebills University from Lev Grossman's Magicians or Rothfuss' Arcanist University from the Kingkiller Chronicles are other prominent examples. Others aren't so formal or traditional, sometimes there are only traveling teachers who teach history for an egg (Pratchett's Tiffany Achings series) or it's walled off in a convent (Lawrence's Book of the Anchestor series).

To make it short: There are many different schools in Science Fiction (Storm Trooper University is probably named something different but surely exists) and Fantasy and we want you to add another one. The age, race, topics of education or number of students don't matter.

Give us a school/university setting and let something interesting happen!


Rules:

1. This must be prose or poetry.
2. The setting has to be a school.
3. Prose must be 500-1500 words long.
4. Poetry must be 100-750 words long.
5. One story per person or writing team (not per account).
6. You will be disqualified if you exceed the limits, full stop. That's why they're called limits.
7. Your entry can't be published somewhere else before.
8. This is a writing contest, not a "I have written something like this ten years ago" contest. So if you happen to have a story that fits one of the themes, I'd like it to have a mayor overhaul/edit. Work for it. ;)
9. Please add your story's word count and, if you have, your twitter handle.
10. Please put your story in [ spoiler ] tags to make the thread easier to handle. :) You can find them above the smileys under the B.
Bonus rule: We consider voting in a contest you're taking part in a given. Others take time and effort to read the stories - you should do the same. A small community like ours lives from reciprocity and this contest needs stories as much as votes. 

If you want so submit your story anonymously you can do so by sending it in a personal message to @xiagan.

Entry will close September 30th/October 1st, 2019 and voting will begin somewhere around the same time too.

All members are eligible to join. If you are not a member you can join here. Sign up is free and all are welcome! :)

The winner will have their piece displayed on the main Fantasy Faction website sometime in the next months.
Submitting a story counts as published. The author retains all rights to their work.
