    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!

    • When i made my Alanstein poster many moons ago, people chalenged me to write a fanfic to go with it, after months of procrastination, i finally went through with it. It is only short and was written as a satire on overly edgy fanfictions but people enjoy it all the same.


      Regardless, enjoy : Linky

    • I wrote this a while back, but it's still eligible all the same. It was written after I decided that I wanted to write a more creative-piece as opposed to the more critical-based writing I always do in my blog posts.

      It's not perfect. I think the ending relies a little too much on "telling" as opposed to "showing". That being said, I think it turned out decently given it was the first time I have done a creative piece in years for leisurely purposes.

      Synopsis: "Carrie's and Darwin's romance has really taken flight, and none could be happier than Carrie's father, Vladus Lokowitchki. However, Vladus has some concerns about the relationship, mostly Carrie's supernatural nature. An otherworldly realization may relieve any of his doubts about their love."

      Have fun: Link

      Imma read it. I gotta

      Edit: I loved it! It was so heartwarming. I loved the fact that it was just about Darwin, Carrie, and Vladus and no Gumball in sight to get in the way of anything, but that probably just my bias talking to me again. The fact that it relies more on telling than showing at the end is OK. Don't get me wrong, I normally love telling and showing but with this, I don't really mind it. You are an awesome writer and though you can have your mistakes, I suggest not stopping! I love your blogs and your fanfiction. With me, I do designs WAY better than I do writing so designs and drawings are usually what I stick with in terms with art but man, do I love me a good story. And I think you and Mattalamode are great writers. Follow your dreams and you just might get somewhere beautiful someday. Maybe you'll be an author or even a writer on a show.

    • The piece below is my first venture in fictional writing and thus, it's still a guilty pleasure to me. I wish I could stop thinking that and just tell myself that this is a good, creative and productive hobby, but... I'm rambling, hah.

      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

      With man's technological evolution, more are pushed to question the relationship between mankind and technology, and ponder where exactly humanity stands within modern society's moral ambiguity. Forced into the world of biohacking and genetic modification, Rob discovers that the concept of the Übermensch is still very much alive, and very, very deadly.

      Read here.

      Edit: Have a soundtrack to go along with that.

    • Wrote this recently after realizing that most of the TAWOG fanfics I've seen on Fanfiction.net weren't really good (and no one really bothers to show any focus on the background characters like fans would do with MLP and Steven Universe)

    • I wrote this as action comedy episode. It is hard to be a real episode in Gumball show. But after I found this contest I can show to people what I write.

      Read, enjoy and have a good time

      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.
