[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]The Ambage-hosted Fortnightly Flash Fiction Contest[/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Welcome, one and all, to the Ambage-hosted Fortnightly Flash Fiction Contest! Be sure to read all of the Contest Rules and Important Information. With the success of the Flash Fiction Marathon, as well as the want of added perks for Ambage members, we bring you the Fortnightly Flash Fiction Contest. These contests are hosted by the Ambage hosts.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Contest Rules and Important Information[/font]

    [*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]There will be a new contest every other week. The contests will alternate between Bionicle and COT.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Each contest will last two weeks. The first week will be the entry period, the second week will be the judging period.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Every COT contest will take place in this topic. Instead of creating a million topics, as this will be a recurring contest once a month (with a two-week Bionicle contest in between), I will be updating this post with the current contest and make a post announcing the new contest each time. Remember, these will be once a month, so keep checking back (and participate in the Bionicle ones, too!).[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Each entry should be between 400-800 words. This is flash fiction. The absolute maximum word count is 1000 words, there is no absolute minimum.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Each contest will have a new theme. Keep checking back for the new contest's theme.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]COT entries are not allowed to be Bionicle. That's what the Bionicle themes are for. And vice versa. Save your COT stories for the COT contests.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]For each theme, contestants will have one week to enter. The next week will comprise of judging. The next two weeks after that will be a Bionicle contest. Then another COT contest and so forth.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Entries will be judged. All contests will have at least two judges. Judges will not enter.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]You must post your stories in a topic. Unlike the Flash Fiction Marathon, you cannot just post your entries in this topic. Please make a topic for your stories.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]All entries must adhere to BZPower's rules and guidelines. There shouldn't be any problem here.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Your story must be new and never before posted on BZP. You can certainly have been working on your entry before this, but it must be posted on BZP onlyafter the start of the contest for it to be eligible. The exception is if you are a member of the Ambage and were given the theme before hand.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Keep it PG-13-ish appropriate. So no gory descriptions, excessive violence, inappropriate content, et cetera.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]You cannot edit your entry once the entry period has closed. Editing will be allowed until then. If editing is done after the deadline, your entry will be disqualified.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]This contest is open to all BZP members. However, there are perks to being an Ambage member. See the Prizes section.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]There will be prizes for each contest. Read the Prizes section for more.[/font][*][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Each contestant is allowed THREE entries for each theme. You may of course write more, but only three flash fiction stories can be entered into the contest.[/font][/list]

    [font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------How To Enter:[/font]

    [font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]There will be two main topics, one for COT (this topic), and one for Bionicle; make sure you post your entry in the right topic.

I may have been opposed to the allowance of multiple entries, but not so starkly that I won't avail myself of it. Besides, it makes the contests more unique; not to mention more fun.Member Name: Nuile: Lunatic WordsmithTheme: "Pathfinding"Word Count: 921 (epigraph included)Link to Story and Title: That Extra MileMember Name: Nuile: Lunatic WordsmithTheme: "Pathfinding"Word Count: 868Link to Story and Title: Rugged Explorers

So I finally managed to finish my entry. Well, it would be more accurate to say that I finally managed to start my entry. The finishing merely proceeded from that. Either way, one week of little to no inspiration and a rushed afternoon's writing later, I have a story! With words and everything! It's even loosely inspired by real events!

:kaukau: Really? I'm a little disappointed, but then I suppose it isn't quite fair that I should have three out of four of all the stories entered. Anyway, I wrote my third SS, although I'm not sure if I want to officialy submit it, since I might write another one completely focused on that last scene and do another interpretation. I wish luck and inspiration to all those who participate in the enxt two days.

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=#000080;]Well, the deadline was just yesterday, but thanks to the awesome speed of Tolkien and 55555, we've got our results already -- and for the first time in contest history, the judges have agreed completely on the order, without need of a tie-breaker. So, without further ado...[/color][/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=#000080;]First Place: "Holiday Cheer", by Aderia[/color][/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=#000080;]With Peach's "Winter Years" and Alex Humva's "Somewhere" coming in second and third place, respectively. [/color][/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=#000080;]Congratulations to Aderia and the honorable mentions!! Thanks for entering, guys. =] We will most-likely be having a Bionicle contest next, starting next Monday, but I'll have to talk to HH first to make sure the Ninjago contest is wrapped up. Seeya then! We'll be back for a COT contest after that. [/color][/font]
