Off-Topic Writing Contest #7 (Winner!)

Welp, considering we got only one entry, it wins by default. The winner is:



with the following story:



Congrats dude! :)



In regards to the contest in general, the past few times have received very little activity, obviously. If the mandatory theme/prompts were the problem, let me know please. I would love some suggestions, either in this thread or via PM as to ways to get people more interested in entering. As much as I like writing, I want to see other people enter (and don't always have time to whip something up) so whatever would make you more interested, please, let me know. I will probably keep using themes and/or prompts, but y'know you guys should have input. If people aren't interested enough it'll probably just die which would be sad, but whatever, lol. I'll leave this here for a few weeks or a month or so before starting another contest or what-have-you for you guys to congratulate the winner, read the story, and, hopefully, give me suggestions as to what kinds of things would make you more likely to enter the contest. :3

"Well Homer, you're the winner by default."

"Default? Woohoo! The two sweetest words in the English language-DEFAULT DEFAULT!"

I suspect the best approach would be to alternate between contests with prompts and open contests.

Maybe have a specific genre each contest? Like one contest, have it be sci-fi, the next be mystery, the next be fantasy, etc. And maybe have one contest be solely fanfics? Just some suggestions.
