Default [WAR X] Creative Writing


______
Welcome to the Creative Writing section, for all forms of prose outside of Pokémon Fan-fiction. Here, you can craft your imagination into whatever shape you like: short stories, poems, essays, and more. I’m your judge, Charmander009 (Char, for short if you’d like), and each week I’ll present a theme. Do your best to respond to the prompt, and let your creativity take flight!

So let’s get cracking!

*****

First things first, here are some rules:

1.) You must be a member of one of the WAR teams to participate.
2.) Your work must be original, and one of your own creation. It can be in any form of prose you’d like to use, but Pokémon Fan-fictions should be entered in this contest, not this one.
3.) Entries must be related to the theme
4.) Keep things PG-13—I would prefer entries to keep swearing to a minimum—or at least censored—and absolutely no sexual or pornographic material within it. Thank you.

*****

To submit an entry, please post the story in a thread in the Creative Writing board, and place a [WAR X] label within its title. Before the deadline, post your story in a link in this thread using the form below:

WAR Team:
Title:
Form: [poetry, short story, essay, ect.]
Link:


*****

I will be judging the entries based on several criteria:

Creativity—based on how you responded to the theme, how you presented it, and how original your work was.

Grammar—based how professional and correct your entry is.

Use of literary devices—based on devices you used to present your work, including imagery, metaphors, analogies, alliteration, and so on.

Flow—based on the logic and movement of the story, if it makes sense or is choppy/blocky

Reader Appeal—based on its communication to the audience, whether it is attention-grabbing and interesting, or dull to read.

*****

For each criteria, I will reward up to five points, according to how well the work meets it. At the end of the judging period, the piece of work with the most points will win the first-place prize: three points for their WAR team. Any second-place winner will be awarded 2 points. Honorable mentions will get a pat on the head :) That makes a total of five points a week, so get your entries in soon!

Weekly Themes:




Week One’s theme: Rebirth

*With the passing of winter comes the promise of new life in spring. Similarly, for this week’s theme, tell the story of gaining new life, whether with the gaining a second chance, a new insight or revelation, or a figurative resurrection from figurative darkness. However you interpret it, please share it!

Deadline: July 1st by 12:00 PM EST



________


--->Week Two’s Theme: Opposites<---

* Light and darkness, sky and earth, Yin and Yang—two very different things, but interacting with one another in some way. For this week’s theme, we’ll explore the relationship between two very unlike things, but how they either come together and work with one another, or come into bitter conflict.

Deadline: July 8th by 12:00 PM EST


________



-->Week Three’s theme: Truth<---

*In honor of the release of Pokémon Black and White, this week’s theme will be about truth. In the Unovan Legend of the twin heroes, the master of Reshiram believed in the pursuit of truth. Similarly, this week’s prompt will be about either the pursuit of truth, or of an existing truth.

Deadline: July 15th by 12:00 PM EST


________
--->Week Four’s theme: Ideals<---

*The ancient Unovan legend tells of another hero, who believed in the pursuit of ideals. Similarly, this week’s theme is Ideals—the pursuit of an ideal, or the exploration thereof, you decide.

Deadline: July 22 by 12:00 PM EST


_______



--->Week Five’s theme: Lost and Found<---


*Life grows bitter when we have lost something precious to us, but new joy can be found when we find something new. For this week’s theme, write about the losing something, but regaining/gaining.

This is a story about being reborn from the Point of View of a phoenix. It does contain speak about 'killing' and I don't think it'd be considered mature.

Alrighty, so Week One is closed, and results will be posted later on today.


Now for next week's theme: Opposites

Light and darkness, sky and earth, Yin and Yang—two very different things, but interacting with one another in some way. For this week’s theme, we’ll explore the relationship between two very unlike things, but how they either come together and work with one another, or come into bitter conflict.

Perhaps the greatest conflict in all of nature...(Aside from the Big Bang, people!)

EDIT: Also, there are four distinct time periods of my poem. The context of each should make it clear what age it is :)

Behold my tale.

Other:
I wish to explain this entry a bit. I have a plot where Lugia is turned itno a Shadow Pokemon once mroe, years after the events that took place in XD: Gale of Darkness, and is known as XD002. He seeks out the legends and goes for Stormbreaker, the Rayquaza, first, and he refuses, and the legendary is killed. Cresselia revives him and Darkrai joins the Shadow Alliance with Lugia, disgusted. Tsukiarash, the Cresselia, creates the Moon alliance. Damuna is a Suicune that served as a spy for the Moon Alliance. Just wanted to let you know. It is told from the point of view from Darkrai (Yamiro), and the 'you' is Cresselia.
