Introducing The Short Fic Fest and it's simple rules!From our dear friend Kseenaa:
There are many wonderful fests in this fandom, large and small, on tumblr and not. But so far, in this fandom, one area has remained untapped in the darkness.
The short fic.
In this fest, there are two levels that an author can write on - and one is harder than the other.
Level, the First: For the novices, the wordy, and the unrestrained, there’s the big one. The 500 worder. You have a whole five hundred words to play around with - to get your adventure down, the porn to climax, and the romance to the gratuitous kiss. And to rescue Gustav, too, if that is your fancy. Sounds like a lot, right? Wait until you get in there - it’s a closer fit than you might expect.
Level, the Second: For the old hands, the tough nuts, and the insane ones out there, you can upgrade to level two; the drabble. And this is the old, by the book version of the drabble; 100 words exactly. Not 101. Not 99. No doubling up so you do two in a row to get your story in. One hundred. Right on the nose.
But wait! Before you reach for your writer icons and comments of “I’m in!” there’s one tiny little thing we should mention...
You don’t get off so easy, dear writers. HERE is the post where you can drop prompts off - as many as you like, any character too! - and then each writer will pick one per drabble to write for.
