Okay. Just because I have next to no writing time doesn't mean I can't write, apparently.

Museums are fun for some people, usually educational, and almost never include near-death experiences for most people. Shawn Spencer, however, is not a normal person.

I really want to apologize SO so much that I haven't promoted this challenge or stabbed at the writers or anything in such an unforgivably long time!! Lots has been going on recently with freelance projects as well as my mom's upcoming surgery. I'm going to continue to leave this open until we get some more submissions because I know there are other people working on stories. I will try to be better about bumping this contest and I refuse to consider this a lost cause so be warned!! lol!!!

So... hypothetically speaking, are entrants allowed to write more than one something? Just hypothetical, of course, but are they?

Arrow Once More Into the Brink

I know all of us have been super busy. I've been unable to keep up with this challenge and I'm really sorry about that.

So, in a fresh-like start, I'm reissuing this challenge to see if we can get some more submissions!

Anyone who's already submitted, your stories still count.

I'm also placing a time limit again because I think people tend to be better about submitting if there's a limit on working time.

One last shot!

Afterwards, we'll look at what has been submitted and make a determination on whether we have enough to vote on or if I'll make a "thanks for playing" award for the participants and move on to a new challenge.

So, all that being said, here we go!




WHUMPING WITH TROPES!!!




Once again I found inspiration from the Whump Game, which is an EPIC resource for plot bunnies!!

Now, as there are a bazillion tropes just dying (heh) to be exploited, I've narrowed the list for convenience.

1. The Can Kicked Him: "The fictional bathroom can be a truly dangerous place. It is fraught, among others, with assassins, demons, and killer mutant creatures. This is very possibly why Nobody Poops. A death or injury in the bathroom is a one-way ticket to a legacy of ignominy, and the prevalence of scary water-closet events seems to speak of a deeper human fear of vulnerability in this most private of places."
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...heCanKickedHim

2. Conveyor Belt-O-Doom: "The villain ties the goodie to a conveyor belt, an ore cart, a log floating in a flume, or any other mechanized delivery system. At the other end is a blast furnace, grinding machine, large saw or other such unfriendly device, into whose open maw the hero is expected to go. Often found in factories, mills, mines, labs, sweatshops and other places that have safety issues."
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...veyorBeltODoom

3. Locked in a Freezer: "Two or more characters are locked in a walk-in freezer, meat locker, bank vault, or some other small, contained space where they're subjected to extreme cold, lack of oxygen, or both. Death is usually imminent. The characters talk a lot, often coming to a greater understanding of each other. Rescue comes in the nick of time. Sometimes."
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...ckedInAFreezer


Requirements:

1. Story must be focused on a popular trope from the list.

2. You need to incorporate Ding Dongs (the snack cake)

3. Two or more people need to have a conversation about zombies


Due Date for story completion: SEPTEMBER 12, 2013

Voting will take place SEPTEMBER 13, 2013


Stories must be linked back to this thread as follows:

Title
Author
Summary
Prompt
Link

Your prompt can be included in your story notes if you don't want to put it in your summary.

Happy Whumping!



Rules:

1. There must be a minimum of 4 submissions for a contest to proceed.

2. One story per contest per person.

3. Stories must fulfill all requirements of the contest in order to qualify.

4. Stories MUST be completed by the due date or the contest is canceled for that month.

4. Winners are chosen by vote. The prize is a custom forum signature created by me.

alrighty, so given that we're well over a month past the final final final due date (har!) I'm gonna call it on this contest. Not that it means people can't still write for it cause that would be epic! But it's no longer an official contest. I realize that all of us, myself included, are super busy so no worries that we couldn't get this one off the ground. I'll think up another contest for the month of November and have it up soon!

Thanks to all of you!

Okay, this is awesome, and I'm in, and it would be the perfect project for NaNoWriMo. Unfortunately, with the deadline on 30th November, I'm not sure there's time for editing... :|
