Upcoming Short Story Contest - Theme Submission

Post by Articuno on Wed May 03, 2017 7:20 pm

Hey all, you guys chose the Themed Short Story (List) for the upcoming contest in June. Now, we are letting YOU choose which themes you want to be able to write about!

Here's how it works:
Until May 7th, you may submit YOUR ideas for any theme you would want to write about. You may submit as many as you like, but please make sure that you consolidate all your ideas into a single post (don't spam one at a time). A theme MUST be something that guides your writing. It can be as simple as a single word (Anger) or it can be something more general and abstract (a song or quote). 

Just as a reminder: All stories must be centered in the Pokemon universe. Please keep in mind that outside fandoms cannot count as a theme.

After May 7th, we will choose 20 themes and put them all into a strawpoll so you can vote on which one(s) you'd like the most. The poll WILL be multivote so you can choose as many or as few of the themes as you like. The top ten will then be our themes for the contest!

I'd say a theme around comradery would be clean.

Let's see. Some themes:

Spirit Guardian Legends
Goal to being the best (not inspired by Pokémon...)
Seeking your hidden powers

I don't think I have anything else, legends is all I write or paranormal events in normal lives. Mostly legends.

i have two ideas (both of which kinda arent themes, moreso like.. tasks, i guess? i dunno, but i thought they were neat):
rewriting a cliche (or just.. elaborating on one and making it seem interesting)
imagery based (trying to describe something, somewhere, or someone in a detailed way, and having the person/place/thing be listed at the bottom of the document, as sort of like a "guess what it is" sort of deal)

He eats knifes for fuel. Not his kid-knives, though. Why's his head look like that? Don't sweat it. He has to keep eating knives to avoid eating his children knives. Knife Dad is Stan Lee.
He fuccs like a broken train, but he runs on time, if you know what I mean. He's part wolf, part mech, part rabbit, part fox, part sunglasses, part dragon, part dad, all dad, all knives. If you unbutton his shirt, a bunch of knives will fall out, and then he'll die, because he's just a bunch of knives under there."

TBH, Character relationships and development. The atmosphere can be anything, but as long as we get to know that characters maybe in a platonic or romantic way
