A big thank you to Cinn for the lovely blue ribbon that adorns this contest.


“I discovered that if one looks a little closer at this beautiful world,
there are always red ants underneath.”-- David Lynch


         I have always had a preference for writings, movies, and art that deviate from the norms of thought, sometimes verging on strange. So for this contest, I challenge you to step outside of conforming to society's rules of correctness. Horror, dark satire, and romance with a dark or demented twist are a plus in this contest.
