First of all, our sincerest apologies for the cancellation of the previous contest and the lengthy wait afterwards. Real life obligations and creative differences had gotten in the way and although we had originally decided to have you guys vote on how to fix the last contest, it turned out to be a tie vote, further complicating matters and in the end, we felt this would be more trouble than it’s worth and one way or another, many people were not going to have fun. Hopefully we hope to avoid this issue on future contests. Again, we’re sorry.
Without further ado, let’s explore the more mystical element of swelling with the fantasy genre. No helium tanks or mad science this time people. If you want to inflate someone in this contest, you’ll need to leave the modern era and pull off some powerful hocus pocus.
- Inflations must be done with magic. It can be a spell, potion, incantation, whatever but regardless, it must have a supernatural element to it.
- The story’s setting cannot take place in the modern world. Dark ages, medieval times and fantasy realms are all fine. No modern technology though.
- Your story must be within 500-750 words long.
All other general rules apply.
The awards up for grabs are:
- Best Story
- Sexiest Story
- Most Original Story
- Darkest Story
All entries must be received by 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time on Friday, October 14, 2011.
