Small Writing Competition
Judged by bobandbill, Bay Alexison and gimmepie

Welcome everyone to the Small Writing Competition! Ready to write a story based on this year's prompt that will impress the three judges and the rest of PC? Great!

But first, a few rules to keep in mind.

Rules

1.) Follow PC's rules and Fanfiction and Writing's rules.
2.) The stories written for this competition must be completely new. In other words, they must not have been written before and not posted anywhere else until judging is over.
3.) You must PM your entries to all of the judges. (This is so if someone loses their PMs the others still have them and so forth). The judges in question are bobandbill, Bay Alexison, and gimmepie. You also must post in this thread when you send your PMs so we can confirm you did send us an entry.
4.) One entry per member only, sorry.
5.) You have until 11:59pm EDT, 16th July to get your entry in. EDIT: An extra SIX hours have been granted.
6.) The story can be based on Pokemon or be original fiction (given the GT theme we would rather you go with a Pokemon theme though - it is about celebrating 20 years of Pokemon after all!). Note the judges may not all be familiar with any other fandoms.
7.) The entry can only be a completed one-shot as this is a small writing competition - no chaptered entries, please!
8.) Please don't publicly post your stories until the competition is over! Once the scores are posted and the competition is over, you may post your story in Fanfiction and Writing so that others may see it. Make sure to add [SWC] to your title if you do!

If you have any other questions, ask away!

Scoring

Each entry can have a maximum score of 30, with the points broken down into three categories equaling 10 points in total like in previous years. The categories are:

Spelling and Grammar
Characterization, Plot, and Description
Relevance to Prompt

The prompt is nostalgia, so good luck with making use of that in your story!

Emblems
First Prize


Second Prize


Third Prize

I'm in this year! :D

Very appropriate prompt for the 20th anniversary of Pokemon. Everyone grab your rose-tinted glasses, cause it's nostalgia time. (??_?)

I'm in.

I think it's time to get my writing chops back in order. I've been getting back in the groove recently, and this would be just perfect for solidifying if I have the gusto or not. It's been a while since I wrote any novelizations or fanfictions for Pokemon. Good luck to everyone else entering the competition. Here's to a good Writing Showcase!

Might give this a shot, although the prompt is rather underwhelming (not a fan of those cliche one-word trope-y stuff) and I do have other personal projects that require my attention...

Ooohooo, this sounds like some good fun. Though I do have to wonder about that prompt, I've some ideas floating around that I'm hoping I can work out with this.

Been a little while since I've been able to do some serious writing.

I am soooo IN!
About the name of the "ENTRANTS", I think using Um E will be better because Caramel-O might change before this competition is over!

As a more or less long-time irregular, I would join this... but it's not what it used to be.

...Get it?

No?

Was just kidding. :p

I think I will be joining this little contest, let's see what I can do. I tend to write better by prompt and this looks like a fun one to try. Plus, it gives me something fun to do during the month.

@icomeanin6, @aeternum, nice to see you hanging around here, too!

I've never written fanfiction or anything really, but I have had a really interesting idea for a while now and wanted to write one so I will use that to enter this. I think I can use the nostalgia theme in it too. I'm really excited actually to see what people will think of the story.

Lol. Seriously though, after seven years for me I think it's safe to say I have some nostalgia for the SWC. Especially 2009, the field was so good that year. This year's looking good so far too. :)

The prompt's just a prompt, you can take it in any direction you want as long as it's relevant. No reason any of the stories have to be cliched.

...Don't you mean the playfield was good? :p

I have to sit through two meetings, one family, one business, today but after that and the mandatory night of sleep I'll see what I can think of for this one.

Hi, I would like to give it a try. Is there a limit on the amount of words or pages? i'm wondering if there is an specific letter size and Font as a standard to be used, and, do we have to write directly our story in a message or attach it? Sorry, I'm new into this. Thanks.
