    Original content just means it's not plagiarised, as in it's your own work (even your own fanfiction). I really recommend you practice without fanfiction here though, and use the practice of prose writing (with entirely original content) you gain here to create and share your fanfiction elsewhere. This is because using existing universes/characters in other pieces of fiction often acts as a crutch for world building and character development, and is not considered serious in the scope of original prose.

    But yes, all you need to do to participate is write an original work of prose in 500 words or less that fits the main theme. :catflower

    Thanks for the reply. I have also written my own things before, so that shouldn't be a bother. Thank you! :harley

    At this point it's probably just giving shit his points and having him pick the next topic.

    I've been too busy to actually try to write this time but I might as well keep trying. It makes difference to me, or anyone I'd imagine, how we proceed. It's better to just make the choice.

    Points are secondary to crits, but the crit process is stale unless there's at least 3 entries so this is probably the way to go.

    Points are like 10 stages below crits, dru.

    But sometimes it's just better to give it a kickstart with a swift kick.

    There's time, frankly.

    We may want to get another round of participants with some kind of advertisement or "reboot" anyways. We've been doing the same type of format for years now with little variation in terms of size and style, so I think we can try out different formats and rules.

    This all hinges on participation so it's not going to happen but

    @afgpride doesn't look like you made it to your climax, but you set a nice scene with your imagery
    I always struggle with how much imagery vs plot to include, I tend to skimp out on imagery in order to fit in all of my idea

    @shit forgot to mention days ago that i read your piece, my bad
    re-read it as a refresher and i'm curious what the female character's motive was in kissing the perp, seems very unusual to take it sexual even if the point is she has a lot of empathy
