Alright, let's get to it then. The theme of this contest is 'Freedom' What Do I mean by that? Some of you might be wondering, well it's the Summer is it not? What do you do during the Summer? It's up to you; but one thing is for sure: You can do anything! ... Legal ... So in this FOURTH SUPER MEGA ULTIMATE contest, write ANYTHING YOU WANT! Any genre, (Action, Comedy, Horror, Romance, etc.) You can mix, match genres to your liking. Any theme (insert example here), Etc. It's all up to you to decide what you want to show to represent yourself. Hell, you can even put unfinished work, of course you'll be disqualified from some polls; but there are plenty of others you can win from. Like I said in capitol letters, WRITE ANYTHING YOU WANT!

Rules
Minimum: 2000-8000 (IDK if anyone will check if it's actually above 2000 words or below 8000, I kno I wont check.)

Genres (Well, not anything)
Action
Comedy
Horror
Romance
Mystery
Slice of Life (It's like writing a story based on a daily life.)

Date
August 1 - 29 (Depending on what part of the world you're in)
August 30 will be when we commence the reading.

Polls
Best (Fav.) Story
Best (Fav.) Use of Genre(s)
Best (Fav.) Premise (Whole Idea of the story)
Best (Fav.) Character
Best (Fav.) Theme (I guess it would also mean feel, the things you see and feel when reading the story.)

All stories are to be LINKED HERE.
The way It should be sent is:

Title of story
Genre(s)

ANY QUESTIONS are to be asked in this link http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=636827

Again, this is about the freedom to write, so don't feel obliged to do so, like art, it requires patience, dedication, and of course the passion and love that goes with the story.

Good luck and have fun!

Alright, so given that this is my first time participating I'll ask forgiveness for any mistakes I make.

The title (improvised as I have yet to decide on a real one):
The Shadow War

The Genre (sorry for being difficult):
Fantasy; though I suppose it could be action? Decide for yourselves I suppose.

Also, I do consider this piece to be a completed short story, though the cliff hanger is obvious. I do plan to expand this into a full length story in the near distant future. Judge it how you feel it should be read.

Here is a link to a google doc. If it doesn't work, let me know and I can submit again.

Sorry I'm not too terribly active in the club. I get pretty busy with life and mostly only use MAL for tracking my anime watching. All the same, it's good to have a group of like minds that I can connect with from time to time on here.

I hope that somebody else posts something in here. That would be kinda lame and a bit awkward if I was the only entry. Though I suppose winning every category -by default or otherwise- would be interesting.

You needn't worry, I'm writing something! (hope more entries are on the way). I'll give yours a read after I'm done, I don't want it to influence mine in any way.

Genre: Slice of Life

Yeah, it's pretty short but writing is a major bitch. ;3 Also, title's pretty much improvised like how Lanthes's story title is improvised. Subject to change.

Hoping this isn't too late >_<

Title: As the Sparrow Flies (title in progress)
Genre:... mystery?
Link: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bw1-RESDkXERWDY0YW5iSnlPLTA/edit?usp=sharing

This is actually part of a larger story, I would probably consider this to be like a first chapter. Looking forward to feedback on this one :)
