    Could I please use the theme phrase, "There was no forgive and forget." I think I could get a good idea out of it.
    Also, I was wondering, do you have a maximum of words you want for the entries or can we use much length as we want?

    I would love to participate, oh god- It's my first contest. xD I'd like Number four- "I'm jealous, so jealous but I've got no right to be." Does the story have to end by the due date? I already had it set up and started but nothing written yet. I'm collabing with LoveForGiraffes so is that okay if it's Co Written? If not, I can start another one separately. :3

    The story I'm writing for it is right here: -click-

    @ Caitlyn_In_Neverland
    It's yours! I'm anxious to read what you come up with. :)
    Thank you for asking that question. I forgot to include that extremely important detail and I've added under the 'rules' section.

    @ HurleyMatrimony
    I'm feel honored that it's your first contest!
    Unfortunately, I won't be accepting co-writers because I don't find it quite fair to your fellow co-writer. Since you're the one entering the contest, you'd be the sole benefactor of it.
    I apologize for that but you'll have to work on it separately if you'd like to submit it. x

    @ sans sheriff.
    Alright, I'll get started. Thanks for accepting me! :3
    Edit; Sorry to bother you again but I was wondering if I could change the prompt I chose to "She's just an ordinary girl falling for the wrong guy." but there's a twist- can I flip around the gender roles? If not, I can work with the Jealousy thing. No biggie.
