Hello, all! We here at ThatOneNPC Headquarters (AKA: our basement) wanted to start off the year with something we've never done before and always wanted to try: A CONTEST!

What you have to do:
Write a small story/ficlet/fanfiction about any RunawayGuys picture we've done of your choosing (on DA or Tumblr), linking your finished product back here and linking the picture you based it off of in the description. The story SHOULD NOT be some seven chapter long saga or merely describe what's going on in the picture/comic. It must...
- Be only ONE chapter/page long.
- Submit your story as a text piece and put the URL in the comments down below.
- Every picture is completely up to your interpretation, but try to stick to the picture's theme.
- DO NOT put your idea of what you want as a picture in the comments. WE will contact YOU for your idea if you won.
- Be creative! We're leaving the plot up to you, so making it something good!

Also, I like funny stories. Just sayin'.

The winner get their idea for a TRG picture in full color and put up as that week's picture for everyone to see!
TWO RunnerupGuys will get their ideas as line art on Tumblr.

Submission date is January 22nd. All late entries will not be eligible.
The following Sunday's picture will be the winner's idea!

Ready! Set! Write!

~Jen and Sam

PS: Don't get discouraged if you don't write much, submit away! It'll be a lot of fun and we'd love to see what creative things you all come up with! :D



EDIT 1/23/13: Thank you to everyone who submitted a story! NO NEW SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE CONTEST. All entries will be considered equally and results posted on Sunday. Winners, be on the lookout for a message from us!

Quick question, can we use two pictures? More specifically, a picture and it's remake? I can do it with one, but I thought it would be a better story using both

The Naptime remake? I think that's quite acceptable! : )

I have two pictures in mind that I would love to use, but I can't decided which to use. Is it acceptable to submit two stories into the contest?
Reply
:iconthatonenpc:
ThatOneNPC Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
Sorry, only one story can be submitted per person, but I'll gladly read both of them. You'd just have to pick which you think you want to submit as part of the contest.
