The (Fear) Arousing Hallowe'en Fables!

Hey, this is MrMetalFLower's first post on the ?blog after realising he hadn't posted before...

Anyway, yeah...

Following in the footsteps of the recently-finished "pickle awards" comes a hallowe'en edition, the (Fear) Arousing Hallowe'en Fables. The idea is that anyone who enters writes the best possible illogical "scary" story they can, and the judges decide who wins. The winner, along with runners-up and honourable mentions, gets a big place on the front page in a hallowe'en main page reskin.

So, what do we want? Well, unlike most of the competitions we've had, the biggest thing we're looking for is high quality articles. This means that we want the article to be well-thought-out, imaginative, in full prose and cohesive. To get this, the minimum word count for your article is 1,250 words, and to make it fair in case people feel inclined to make 10-yr-long epics that obviously win, the maximum is 2,500. Basically what we want is the coolest possible Hallowe'en stories to broadcast on teh interwebs.

The judges are all ready, so all we need is your articles. The competition opened on the 6th of September and closes on the 22nd of October, giving you plenty of time to write your best possible stories. Good luck!


  1. I don't know why, but I've never really gone in for the pickle and such.

  2. @Bob: maybe cos it's a stupid capitalist idea?
