    One person per character until full
    • A character that has robotic body part(s)
    • A character who is (realistically) involved in fandom culture*
    • A character that gets bullied for having dark skin
    • A character who lives in "The Bible Belt" but doesn't believe in God
    • A character that has many visible scars*
    • A character under the age of fourteen (14)
    • A character with PTSD that is not active military or a veteran
    • A character dealing with the repercussions of saying/doing something offensive
    • A character before and while hiding out during a big storm*
    • A character working hard to have a shining college application
    • A character who is a sex worker
    • A character who outed a friend in a series of drunk texts*
    • A character who is in a relationship with a teacher
    • A character who gets detained at an airport
    • A character that wakes up a century (or more) into the future
    • A character accused of major crime(s) after waking up from a coma
    • A character who can see dead people

    * By realistically I just mean a character who doesn't bump into some celeb they're obsessed with and fall in love. A character who is just like us - most likely none of which are going to have a spicy romance with a hot celebrity.

    * Not self-harm scars. I want these character choices to really challenge you.

    * If you're planning to write a story, what happens as a result of the storm and how does your character deal with that?

    * What was outed is up to you but please be respectful and realistic

    May I join with a YouTuber and an OC pairing? It could probably be read as original fiction! With the prompt: A character that has many visible scars?

    I'd like that one please! Now for this prompt, does it have to involve being in the Military at all? or can it be a different experience. i have an idea in mind but want to ask before I do anything!

    little me;
    It's yours Cute I can't wait to read your submission c:

    poison and blood
    Yes. Yes you can~ I'm so excited to see what you come up with!

    aurora borealis.
    It's all yours! No genre restrictions, the only thing for this contest that I maybe should have bolded is no fanfic unless you ask for an exception (I know some people consider fanfic a genre)

    floral and fading.
    YESSSSS, as long as it's not Markiplier or PewDiePie l o l I know who those two are because they're ALL I hear about anymore

    ugly lights
    "is not active military or a veteran" It's actually not allowed to be military because I wanted to read something different, so I can't wait to read what you come up with~
