I never actually mentioned the name of the actual rahi in my SS(I just called it a fish), but it is a Bionicle fish and its set in the MU. Does that still count?

 

[color=rgb(0,128,0);]Non-canon fish are fine, even if you don't want to name it. In fact, it doesn't even have to be a fish exactly--Venom Eels, Razor Whales, Lightfish are all fair game, though none of these are technically fish.As an example, in my original entry, I wrote about an unnamed, vaguely described sea monster that may or may not have been a whale. So as long as your "fish" is a biomechanical aquatic creature, it counts.[/color]

Thanks. I was a little worried there for a moment XD

I kinda have this thing for last-minute entries.

So my story isn't "about a fish," per se, but the main character is fishing throughout the course of the story. Hope that's acceptable.Member: BaltarcTheme: WRITE A STORY ABOUT A FISHWord Count: 508Link: Home

Until I realized what the background picture was, I thought this was a reference to five days until MLP:FiM's Season 3 premier.

 

I also might actually enter this one, just because it sounds cool.

BZP Administration has noticed an unfortunate trend of site members bringing up Ambage drama and disputes on the forums and causing trouble for the staff. This has been going on for quite some time now and it is high time that it stopped. Due to the escalating seriousness of these issues and the history of related difficulties with the Ambage, I am hereby shutting the topic and the Fortnightly Flash Fiction Contests down.
 
This brings me no pleasure to do, but this is our policy and I ask that you understand this decision.
 
Topic closed.
