    Hey guys. Welcome to The Great Big Character Contest! tehe
    The idea of the contest is fairly easy. I found this cool lil image compilation of characters for an epic tale which you will fully see when you scroll down.

    Essentially, you pick a character (of which there are exactly sixty different ones) and write a something about them. Don’t be afraid to get creative — if you pick the Queen, for instance, you could write about a literal queen or the queen of a school. Maybe the Talking Shrub is a wallflower (or an actual talking bush). You feel me? Now, there are only two spots per character, so first come, first serve.

    Image
    ♣ This is a given, but make sure you follow Mibba's rules & guidelines.
    ♣ No pre-writes, no minimum or maximum in terms of word count (be reasonable), but five chapters at the most.
    ♣ Anything goes (but I will mention that some things like gore make me queasy). Poems will be accepted.
    ♣ Let me know in the case of
    ——a drop out (like seriously try not to drop out the day before the deadline)
    ——a username change, and
    ——if you want to change your character.
    ♣ Make sure the layout is legible.
    ♣ Linking the contest in the story is not necessary.
    ♣ One character per person*, two persons per character.

    First place gets five; second place gets four; third place gets three.
    If there are any honourable mentions they may get one or two. We’ll see. Weird

    Other Notes
    * If you have already submitted an entry for a character, then you may enter for another character. Two at the most.

    Spots per character has been increased to three. If there are three participants under a character, it is closed. Thank you! c:

    This is probably a stupid question, but is it okay if our entry is a one shot?

    I love the idea for this!
    Can I please have The Messenger?

    Also, if for some reason I lose my idea for this and I want to change, is it possible to change or not?
