The Writing Contest Returns - July 2017

It's been a while. Users have come and gone. Fundamental mistakes have been made in the governance of America. In spite of all of that, after all this time, the writing contest is back for the summer!

The Purpose

The last time a writing contest was proposed, last year, it ended up an unequivocal failure in the sense that nobody did anything for it. Given the success of the recent art contests, though, we're willing to give this a second chance. With more and more new users flocking to the Wiki and a revived interest in the contest itself, there doesn't seem like a better time to try again.

The success of this contest will basically determine the viability of doing more writing contests in the future, so if you want to see the creative side of this Wiki flourish, I recommend giving this a shot.

The Overview

If it wasn't an obvious enough premise: write, post what you write, and pray that people like what you write. Follow those three steps, and you might win and see your work gracing the front page for the world to admire!

The contest will be open for submissions through to July 23rd, 2017. After that time has passed, another thread will open up dedicated to voting on the pieces. The details of the voting process will be laid out later, but it'll be conducted in the exact same as the way the art contests are for the sake of simplicity.

The Way to Submit Your Work

All you have to do is hyperlink your work in a comment to this thread and provide a brief description, and you're pretty much good to go. Links will be accepted from any multitude of sources: Fanfiction.net, Google Docs, Tumblr, Wattpad, Deviantart, personal sites, and so on. Basically, as long as you don't give my computer a virus, we're on good terms.

In terms of what the content of the work will be: generally speaking, anything you want. It can be dramatic. It can be satirical. It can be a script for all I care. Simply adhere to:

The Rules

Before you go off and write to your heart's content, do keep the following rules in mind:

  • Please, be classy. As tempting as it may be to sew together whatever NSFW masterpiece you've had brewing in your mind for the past few months, nobody else wants to see it (or at least not here). Keep the language and general concept PG-13 or the entry will not be accepted and your account could be banned.
  • Your work must be your own, original content. Plagiarizing of any sorts will not be tolerated. If somebody catches you in the act, you will receive an automatic disqualification.
  • You are allotted one submission. If you submit more than one, only your most recent submission will be accepted.
  • The work - this should go without saying - must be Gumball-related. You don't have to stay wholly true to the show, but if your work strays from the point, it should not be entered.
  • Be cautious with OCs. There's a good chance that works utilizing them will not be tolerated, so play around with them at your own risk.
  • There is no character limit, but be wary of keeping your work concise and to-the-point.
  • Stay respectful. Self-explanatory.

The Prize

The three people who receive the most votes on the voting thread will have their works displayed on the front page.

The Conclusion

Best of luck to everybody participating! I know there's some real talent around here, and I'd love to see what all of you guys can conjure up. Any qualms or inquiries should be addressed to one of the following:

Now whip out those keyboards and get to work!

I present to you my first fanfiction. It's a bit outlandish and a pretty big departure from what you know as TAWoG, but that's fanfiction for you, I suppose.

Neophyte

Wow, I want this to be a movie. Even if it wasn't about Rob and didn't have a connection to the Gumball universe, the concept could still work. Even the void parts could work, if just tweaked a little. Great job!

Thanks. I'm actually writing the continuation of that in the form of "The Traveler."

The Floater is incredible, dude. Reading it felt like a legit transcript from a real episode. Some great imagination there.

Look up the British slang meaning for "Floater" if you want a good laugh.

1

FOUR DAYS LEFT.

My internet's too bad for fancy fonts at the moment, but you get the idea - time's running short.

1

THREE DAYS REMAIN.

That's the lesser half of a week.

3

TWO MORE DAYS.

...and that's one of the greater thirds of a week. Math.

1

ONE FREAKING DAY.

...t's a seventh. Time is of the essence. I believe in you.

ONE HOUR TO GO!
