    Okay, so I literally just saw this post on Tumblr, and my first thought was, "Wow, this would make a great Mibba contest," so here I am. Credit goes to @witterprompts because I'm definitely not cool enough to come up with all this.

    RULES
    ❀ pick one of the aesthetic prompts below and write a piece inspired by it
    ❀ follow Mibba guidelines
    ❀ fan fiction, original fiction, and true stories allowed
    ❀ if you happen to have a pre-write that fits one of these, you're free to enter it
    ❀ must be completed by the deadline whenever I decide on one
    ❀ minimum word count: 200; maximum word count: 3,000
    ❀ no more than 3 chapters
    ❀ link this contest somewhere in the summary
    ❀ piece must be legible (no hard to read font)

    DEADLINES
    TBA

    PRIZES
    ❀ Comment on a story/poem of your choosing (comment will be at least 100 words long. If you request a chaptered story, I'll likely only read the first couple unless it really pulls me in)
    ❀ 3 story/poem recs of your choosing
    ❀ 1 blog post promoting up 2 stories/poems of your choosing
    (honestly, i'm not awesome with html, so i can't give away layouts and stuff)

    PROMPTS
    Each prompt can be chosen twice, allowing up to 16 participants
    One entry per person

    ❀ 1. Diner coffee, sneakers against tiles, buzzing of a neon open sign, and red booth seats.

    2. The feeling that something isn't quite right, red glinted eyes, long claws tapping at the window, and the sound of chains dragging across the floor.

    3. Leather jackets, band shirts, a roaring campfire, pitched tents, and a smooth singing voice.

    4. Sitting in an empty room, confetti litters the floor, a birthday cake went untouched, and the sun slowly starting to set.

    ❀ 5. A dark theatre, ghostly apparitions flitting through the seats, the curtains rising, and a haunting violin melody.

    ❀ 6. Shimmering stained glass, the scent of vanilla from a lit candle, the sound of creaking wood being walked on, and shifting curtains.

    ❀ 7. Lanterns strung from branches, a large crowd flitting about, the smell of food drifting from stalls, and the sun setting after an eventful day.

    ❀ 8. Water drops on paved roads, colorful buildings under dark clouds, bright umbrellas bobbing along the street, and the smell of soon-to-bloom flowers.

    I totally should not be volunteering to write anything new with the amount of half-finished ideas I have... but I'm going to tentatively ask to write something for the birthday cake prompt...? It gave me an idea for something short!
