    Default Weekly Writing Contest 87

    On Thursday a topic will be chosen and posted by the previous week's winner. Then everyone who wants to enter will post their piece in the thread before 12:00 PM (-8:00 GMT) Thursday. So that is Wednesday night/early Thursday morning. Then the previous winner will judge all the pieces and pick the new winner and post it in the entry thread sometime on Thursday (try and do it as early as you can). The week's winner will then pick the topic and make a new thread and it starts all over again. Remember, this is your chance to shine!!!


    1. All forms of writing are welcome, whether it be poetry, short stories, essays, fanfiction, or whatever.
    2. All entries must be under 500 words.
    3. All entries will be rated no higher than R; this will be at the mod's discretion. All entries rated over PG-13 must be under spoiler tags with a warning!
    4. The week's judge's decision is final and absolute. There no whining or complaining about another piece being better or the judge not being able to judge. On a flip note, let's try and keep it as fair and impartial as possible.
    5. Critique will be allowed in another thread, but must remain constructive. Just saying 'your piece sucks' is not allowed and will be dealt with accordingly. Everyone will be trying their best so lets not try to hurt feelings. On the flip side, learn to take criticism. It will help you become a better writer.
    6. Let's have fun with it. This will give you a chance to read other people's writing and let others read yours.
    7. A default judge will pick a new winner and topic if the week's judge goes MIA.
    8. If for some reason you can't fulfill your duties, please PM Sarah so that she will be able to take appropriate action so the contest doesn't suffer delays.
    9. Have fun!!!

    This was something like a desire to be special but if doesn't fit the criteria sorry about that.

    Fanciful Fairy Tales

    We all dream, putting words to the wind.
    One day hoping to end the last chapters of our book with love.
    Common is the hidden thought that happy endings are scarce.
    It is known but not remembered until realized.
    Not everyone can be the lucky fool with a princess.

    We can go years secretly hoping for true love.
    True is not the not always the love,
    But we would like to think we are the wise.
    Believing love is true doesnít make so,
    Loving someone with all your heart isnít that magical.

    What is magical is when two people can give everything.
    Few people can as the past is as twisted as the future,
    But still we hope that what we dream of is real.
    Reality is that shock you feel in your heart,
    When you realize you can never be that person Noah.

    You like many others were background characters to their stories.
    You always thought it possible for prince charming to be you,
    Always believing that nothing can take you away from her.
    At least until her real fairy tail love comes back.
    Back from his nap to build the dramatic tension,
    Heightening the sound of the shattering.
    Shattering that fills your ears,
    When your heart hits the floor.
