Does the first rule conflict with using anime characters?


I would think of this as more of a fan fiction type of contest. since we're allowed to use already made characters but just in a situation we make up for them. That's how it's coming across to me anyway.

I hope so but I doubt they'll penalize you for it.

Man, I was really excited for this until I saw 500 word limit...when I get writing, I rarely do anything less than that. Might try entering, but that's a big limit for me. x.x

Hmm... 500 words is only two pages double-spaced 12 point font. I'm not sure I could even write any kind of fleshed out story with such a small limit.

Dancing With Fire




The sun was out and the flowers in full blossom. With a slight breeze carrying the scent of the dahlias, this has always been Malga Naruze’s favorite season. It’s like the world itself is full of excitement and color. While she was taking in the summer scenery, her friend Margot Naito came up to her with something they both could do over the summer break.

Margot gave her a piece of paper and said, “Hey Malga will you dance with me in the Summer Festival?”
Malga quickly responded, “I would love to Margot! What kind of dance?”
Margot replied, “A dance where we can control the flames and awe the crowd.”

Both agreed to the plan and immediately went out to practice. To learn the dance within the festival, the witches went through rigorous training. Practicing side-stepping, spinning, and hand movements until they mastered it. The preparations were next. They overviewed the positions at certain times during the dance and how they could liven up the performance a bit.

After the practices and preparations, the festival started and the time arrived for the witch’s performance. It was close to midnight and the only source of light was the bonfire in the middle of the stage. When they walked out, both were wearing bright colored Yukata’s to perfectly resemble the summer season with miniature bells tied to their ankles. On Malga’s wrist, it had Margot’s red scrunchie. While on Margot’s, it had Malga’s black scrunchie. After a deep breath, the two girls started to dance.

They were perfectly in rhythm with each other and taking center stage with the sound of the ankle bells traveling throughout the crowd. Then, they stood symmetrically apart from one another with the bonfire in the middle. Both the witches started to raise their hand and after a brief second resumed dancing; however, a spectacle started to happen. The flames from the bonfire started to follow their hand movements creating an impressive light show. With every hand movement, the flame would follow. When they were spinning, the flames would circle around them from their feet up to the tip of their fingers.

The flames on their feet would ignite small ropes the crowd could not see. The only thing they saw were sparks as if a fuse was lit. After watching the sparks go to the top of the stage, fireworks were then blasting into the sky. They would resemble various elements of summer like Sunflowers, Volleyballs, and Ice-cream Cones. After the epic display, the final dance move started to happen and Malga went into her last twirl. Spinning like a top toward Margot and radiating the flames beautifully as if she had additional wings besides hers, until she got caught and then they both stared at the audience and the music stopped. The crowd cheered and started to call out their names repeatedly. This was a summer neither witch will ever forget. It was also a moment they will never forget in their relationship.

The Fireworks Miracle
(♥ A Drama Story ♥)




Anime:
Fairy Tail

Featured Characters:
Juvia Lockser ♥ Gray Fullbuster ♥ Mira Strauss ♥ Lyon Vastia

Image:
From the Twitter of Hiro Mashima (Original Creator of Fairy Tail)


It was the last day of summer for the town of Magnolia. To celebrate the end of a long summer, the town held its annual fireworks show. Some say that what makes watching the fireworks especially special is that if you watch them with the one you love, you will be together forever. After hearing such rumors, the Fairy Tail girl, Juvia Lockser, was determined to go see them with the one that she loved, guild mate Gray Fullbuster. This whole season she had tried to get him to just notice her. It had always seemed like her efforts were in vain. "Not tonight" she thought. This was her last chance for that summer romance she had always wanted.

She went down to the guild hall hoping to see Gray and ask him to go together with her. Unfortunately, he had already left for a job with Natsu, Happy, Lucy, and Erza and may not even make it back in time to see the show. Juvia felt sadden that her last chance may now be over. "Don't worry. Even miracles can happen during times like these" said fellow guild mate Mirajane Strauss. Juvia felt at ease hearing her words but wasn't completely satisfied.

Wanting to be in her own thoughts, she decided to take a walk around town. What she thought was going to be a solo trip suddenly turned into a walk for two. "Lyon-sama, where did you come from?" Gray's old friend, Lyon Vastia of the guild Lamia Scale appeared in front of her. "I'm here with everyone else from my guild for the fireworks. I saw Gray when I first got here. That turned out to be a drag but seeing you now makes it worth it" Lyon had been in love-at-first sight with Juvia after their first meeting. "Glad to know one of us have today" she mentioned to him disappointingly. Seeing she was depressed, he wanted to know why. Hearing her story, he felt it was up to him to ask her to go. Not only so she wouldn't be alone but for his own self. With how things were going, she decided to take his offer.

Night had finally arrived and the festivities had begun. Juvia arrived at the meeting spot she had agreed upon with Lyon. She had looked so lovely in her summer kimono that she had specifically picked out for that day. "What's wrong with that idiot dragging me all the way back here for no reason?" It was the appearance Juvia had wanted Gray himself. The two met and Gray explained how Lyon suddenly came from now where, dragged him back to town, then ran off. As he finished his story, the fireworks started to light the sky.
As the two stood there, looking up at the sky, Juvia remembered Mira's words. Though this wasn't the romance she was hoping for, this very night, with her beloved Gray, confirmed that in some way, some how, they will always be together.

i just want to make sure. Are the only characters we are allowed to use anime characters or can we have anime characters and original? Also are we allowed to have a friend/family member proofread it for us, so there aren't any major overlooked grammar/punctuation mistakes? I just want to be sure before I start writing. The Contest sounds fun.



Only anime characters please You can have people proofread for you, you just have to use your own original work.

For the purpose of the contest it is not against the rules to use characters from animes in stories. However, your story must be your own original work and it cannot be plagiarized or copied from somewhere else (like stealing a fanfiction story or writing about a literal scene from the anime).

Keep the submissions coming! I'm loving them!~
