    This is a contest waiting for revival. For more information on Mibba’s Contest Revival and judging, please go here

    We all have that one story. The one that's been in the back of our minds for weeks, or maybe even years, that we've never had to guts to write about. Maybe it involves a fan-fiction that's relatively unheard of, or even one that you've never written about before, or maybe you're unsure whether the storyline is workable in the slightest. Maybe you've written it off as being too weird or are saving it for a rainy day, or maybe you just don't think you have the talent to pull it off.

    This contest is for you! I'm challenging you to fight those negative thoughts and finally take the chance to sit down and write that idea that's been pressing at you for ages. I don't care how weird, how different or how abnormal it is -- I'd love to read these stories that you've never had the guts to write.

    Obviously, this contest is going to involve a lot of trust. I'm going to trust that you guys aren't just writing a story that was going to be for another contest and adding it to mine for an extra chance at winning. I'm going to trust that this really is that story that you've been meaning to write about, and not simply one that just pops into your mind.

    So give me your weirdest. Give me the fan-fiction you're scared people will judge you for. Hell, I might even join in and write my own story. Message me for advice, comment telling me your uncertainties and we'll all get excited about this together!

    You're finally going to do it. Do you have the guts?

    THE RULES.
    -any length is fine, as long as it's submitted by the deadline. It doesn't even have to be finished by the deadline; I'll simply judge whatever's up. So drabble, oneshot, chaptered story... doesn't matter. This idea is the one you've been meaning to write, and I won't put limitations on it.
    -slash, femmeslash, hetero -- if you're giving it a go, I'll give it a go!
    -notify me if you change your username
    -any fandom is allowed
    -TRUST.
    and that's about it, I think. If there's anything I'm missing, let me know. You're not required to place a link to this contest in the summary or even to provide a word count, but if you'd like to that's fine.

    THE CONTESTANTS.
    - balani {1941}
    - Theo Rossi; {Robin}

    [UNLIMITED ENTRIES]

    THE PRIZES.
    I'll have to start thinking these up and I'm not necessarily sure that it'll be anything vast, but at the very least you'll get a detailed comment on your entry. I'm open to any suggestions, but it'll probably just be the usual (Layouts, comments, reccs, etc)

    BONUS POINTS.
    -if you rec this contest so that others can join
    -if your layout's readable
    -if your storyline's something out of the ordinary for you as a writer

    THE DEADLINE.
    August 28th.
    Friday September 6th.
    If you need an extension please let me know at least a few days earlier and I'll see what I can do!

    Okay... that's about it. Comment if you'd like to join and get writing. XD

    I have a story that it's unfinished for now that I'd like to enter because it fits this contest very much. Is that fine?

    Ugh, okay. There's one story that I've always been meaning to write but I always thought it didn't have much potential in the long run. I guess I'll give it a go. :)

    I have this boy in the back of my head and he is trying to get out and he is beyond weird but I think I want to try. I have actually written it down, but I'll probably change it or add up something else because there's something wrong with it. http://www.mibba.com/Stories/Read/528228/Phantom-Limb/

    I have always wanted to write a femmeslash with a character playing around in my head for a very long time. I would like to have a try at it.

    I have an idea about a weird person in my mind, so I'll give it a go and see how this turns out.

    Could I join? I'm not sure what I'm going to write, but I know it will be something I've never written before. I'm thinking of something involving Dirty Dancing.

    I've had an idea in my head ever since I was eight. I started to write the story at that age, but I soon dropped it and threw the story away. I think this is the perfect opportunity to give the idea another go.

    Hey. Shifty
    So... what if my one story is actually Ghost Hunting because I've had the idea for years upon years and it's so hard to write because it needs to be perfect and I'm actually in the process of rewriting it? (I haven't gotten around to taking the chapters down yet though. tehe) idk technically I think it's unposted BUT I totally get it if it doesn't count. XD

    I have an idea about fish I've been going back and forth about writing, so this gives a reason to write it. I'm in. Mr. Green

    @ BaconTommyVicious
    If you do something involving Dirty Dancing I will cry. As in good tears. As in weird, creepy, stalkerish tears. Okay putting you down now.

    @ Polite Stranger
    That sounds absolutely perfect! It would be amazing if you could write that. I can't believe you've had it in your head since you were eight. I'm super excited to see where you take it. tehe

    @ lungsmoke
    Oh. It's you. No you can't do that whut even. File LOL JOKING I LOVE YOU. I'm just on a sugar high so I'm in a super obnoxious mood. Yeah that should be fine. As long as it's being rewritten from the beginning. I shall put you up there and then lurk the crap out of your story. Shifty

    LAWL NO. I'm probably not making sense. I just meant as long as you're starting from chapter one. As in... as long as chapter one isn't exactly the same as it was the first time 'round. u get me

    @ whimsical waves
    Sure thing! That sounds amazing! I can't wait to see what you write. tehe
