    Write a cryptic ficly.......................................

  • Admit your deepest regret

    Write a short letter to the person you want to apologize to the most. Tell them everything you need to get off your chest. You can be completely anonymous, you don't have to mention any names. (Don't worry, I'm not going to tell them...) You know you need to release it, just let it o...

  • Oh God WHY

    I'm afraid of going insane, odd unexplained noises, places filled with WAAAY too many people, Biological warfare, and a ton of other stuff. But I'm _not_ here to tell you what I'm afraid of. I'm here to find out what _you_ are afraid of. Write a poem, a story, whatever. Yo...

    HAPPY OCTOBER EVERYBODY! As we all know from our days as trick-or-treaters or as little hooligans looking for some fun, October is the month for SCARES! Unless you're like me. The BIGGEST wimp to ever grace this Earth. BUT ANYWAYS! This year, I plan on getting... Le...

  • Piece Them Together VIII

    (I might just blow up if I don't get more than three participants in this challenge) Sooooooo, for this challenge I am doing something slightly different as an experiment of sorts. The basic requirements for a ficly will be that the following items *must* be used in your ficly e...

  • Surprise Endings

    There are few things better in my opinion in fiction than a surprise ending. Not one that comes completely out of left field, but one that gives a new perspective to all that preceded it. It is especially difficult to pull off this task in the confine of the character limit allowed he...

  • Come On Guys!

    This is very simple - I'm not happy with the slow traffic around here so let's get going! I want ONE little ficly that stands alone. Any genre, any anything. Mature or not. Poem or prose - whatever YOU want to do. If you were just about to post a ficly, post it HERE. I want one fic...

  • What if they suddenly came to life?

    ALLLLLLLRRRIIIGGHHHTTYYYYYY! So, I'm sure at SOME point or another, we've all wanted a character to be real. Be it from a movie, a book, a story, a videogame, whatever. Don't lie. We've all been there! Personally, I think about this kinda stuff all the time. Sooooo what I w...

  • Build A Superhero!

    It seems superheroes are everywhere these days. I'd like one thing to be known, I geeked out before it was cool to geek out. As outrageous as the concept of guys and ladies (not so much here) saving the world in spandex may be, the allure is there. All those powers, and the drama,...

  • Excuses, Excuses

    We all know about excuses. Sometimes we're on the receiving end, and sometimes we're the ones giving the excuses. Sometimes we're even giving excuses for someone else! Sometimes the excuses are legitimate and sometimes not so much. They can get to be pretty outrageous. Maybe they go o...

  • Attention All of Ficlyland: Celebrate Your Milestones

    I was reminiscing recently, not about anything in particular, but about the act of reminiscing itself. It's kind of like why monuments are built. They're there to inhabit the world, there to be revisited as one would a fond or significant memory. They're simply, actually, _there_. To ...

  • Yes. Another one.

    Alright! Now, I know there have been quite a few challenges lately where you were given a song and had to write with that. Personally? I think the idea is _bloody brilliant_. I always write to music of some sort! But see, this challenge has one stark difference. I'm giving you thr...

  • Historical Perspective

    People tend to idolize historical figures. They say "Lincoln wouldn't like this!" or "Washington is spinning in his grave!" But they were men of their times. So, I challenge you to write how they would react, realistically, to some political or social matters of today.

  • Make Us Laugh!

    The challenge is simple, in principle. *_Write something that makes us laugh._* It can be Narrative, or limerick, or whatever you choose to make it, but it MUST be funny. This is not as easy as it sounds. Good luck, and most importantly, have fun! you have ANOTHER mo...

  • Piece Them Together V

  • Haikus!

  • Who are they really?

    Alright, so, I've been reading the Incarnations of Immortality series lately. Amazing series, let me tell you. I highly recommend those books. They're a tad hard to understand (For me, anyways. Perhaps it's my twelve-year-old mind?), but amazing nonetheless. So, I thought to myself, "...

    Write about one (or write both in dofferent entries) of the following prompts. The revolver is empty. Why? OR The room is empty. Why?

  • The end...?

    We've all encountered open endings before. For most, they are horrible. For me? They are opportunities. What I want you to do is take something you've read or watched or whatever with an open ending, and finish or continue the story. I have faith in you, Ficliters! Now... GO!
