Welcome to the activity page! Activities given to the group will be posted in this forum. Anyone who wishes to participate will use this forum for posting their entries and any and all discussions regarding the activity itself.

All writing activities need to be posted using the *bitem format*. If you do not know how to do this, see the following example of how your post should be inputted:

Using the 'curly' brackets, the ones next to the 'P' key on your keyboards, Use the left bracket, insert the word 'bitem' then a colon, and then the ID # and the right bracket (you use the shift key to get the correct bracket)

{bitem:followed by the ID# assigned to any item/image you create here on WDC}

If you still don't understand, email me!

*Exclaim* CURRENT ACTIVITY *Exclaim*

Starts April 5th, 2022 and ends May 31st, 2022 

*Idea*Create a short story based on the following prompt;

Broken Masquerade:

If you've ever seen Men in Black or Harry Potter, or any other movie where aliens, fantasy creatures, people with supernatural powers exist, yet Normal Humans don't know that they exist, because some dudes in black suits, or wand-wavers, alter the minds of Normals, so that they don't remember the oddities, or there's a device that makes the non-humans look Human. Well, what happens when the devices and spells malfunction, and the Masquerade is Broken, and now everyone knows the Truth? Time for the Story.

Possible Plots -

1. Normies Knew Along - they merely pretended to not remember when those dudes did those Memory Erasing Tricks.

2. Nothing New - Folks act like nothing has changed, aside from maybe the bank teller having pointy ears, and solid black eyes, and claws, and the person bagging their groceries is actually a centaur.

3. Freak-out! Is it the sight of these beings that causes the screaming, or is it because someone's merely less dressed than allowed.

4. Conflict! There's fighting in the streets.

5. Multiple Masquerades Broken - Aliens are just as surprised to find out that Fantasy Creatures exist, and vice-versa, just as humans are surprised to find out about both of them.

6. Open Choice - Come up with your own Plot. Maybe you could combine two of the prior options.

Rating:18+ or under is preferred, but GC and XGC  are allowed, but posts in the forum must follow the 13+ rating. Please be sure to rate your items correctly and let us know in your bitem post that the rating is over 18+.

*Noteg* Rules:

*Bullet*One of the prompts listed above must be followed and included in your story.
*Bullet*Word count: 5,000 words or less, but we won't be too strict with this one, so long as it is close to it (as in under 9,000!). Word Count doesn't need to be listed (unless being used in another contest that requires it! *Laugh* )
*Bullet*Genre: None in particular. (fantasy, sci-fi, supernatural, mythology, etc...) You may mix genres.
*Bullet*Entry must be newly-written for this contest.

All entries are due May 31st, 2022 @ Midnight WDC time.

*Dollar* Prizes:

1st Place: *Drum roll* (TISH) An Anthro Merit Badge (Need at least 5 entries) and a 10K awardicon for the item (10 or more entries).

2nd Place: 10K awardicon for the item. (10+ entries though)

3rd Place: Honorable Mention and a surprise number of GP's.

Surprise prizes will be awarded, based on creativity, numbers, and what the roll of one of my d20s say. I might end up giving extra 10K Awardicons and/or Merit Badges if I roll a 20 on it.

Please note: Prizes will be awarded depending on how many entries are received. We hope that many of you will participate and make the odds better for placing prizes! If we get many entries, the prizes will change and more places will be added. If we get a low number of entries, prizes will be reduced.

Get creative and have fun!
