PYOA Promo Banner

Howdy! I’m here again to bring you a new contest SammieLynnsMom and morethanmyself are hosting 🙂

Pick Your Own Adventure Anonymous One-Shot Contest

Quoted from Contest Fanfiction Profile

It’s like Mad Libs for Fanfiction!

We provide a list of words, you choose your own prompt. The only rule is that you must select one word from each category to turn into an original one-shot piece. The words don’t have to be from the same horizontal row, so make it as creative as you’d like! The categories are: Event, Place, Object, Emotion, and Word. Outside of the basic restrictions listed below, what you do with your five words is up to you! You can also choose as many words as you’d like, but we’re going to look for one for each category for validation!





See? The possibilities are endless!

Isn’t fun?

Note: Let it be known I had no idea what Mad Libs was to this day. Things you learn when you hang with Fanfic folks long enough 🙂

Judges:  ange_de_laube, ChiTwiGal, maxandmo, mostlyalurker, & kas90
