A Free To Write contest

Hosted by [Kuzco]


Now, seriously, nothing makes a reader's blood boil as much as a good betrayal and even more, a rightious act of revenge.
As it is a "free to write" contest, you can go crazy on the gore or language; I want you to write a short story about revenge and I want that act of revenge VERY detailed. What better way to punish someone? You tell me. Anger, rage, calm and justice, you can preach any sense to the act of vengeance, just don't be mellow...make me FEEL the rage, the fury and the other guy's punishment and thank god himself that's not happening to me.


Rules and warnings:

- 200 words up.
- Include a STORY around the act. Even if it's like the opening paragraph for you lazy writers like me, I want you to say what could have upsetted the main character so much as to do that...may it be justified or not, explain. The scene of the act doesn't necessarily have to be bigger, I will take into account the creativity of all that surrounds it.
- Respect other entries and the hosts, that's me, decisions at all times.
- I know most people preach the wrong of vengeance and revenge and whatnot; I agree. Every story about that has that sense, excluding one or two. You can bring that sense to the story but keep in mind the judgement lies greatly on the act of revenge. I will not hold it againts you though, if you take a nice aproach on the after-act.
- Ask me if doubts remain. Yes this is a rule.


Here is an example of a short story about revenge: example shorts.FTR.1 This was the closest I could find out, but be wary that the act of revenge isn't described like I want you too. Details! Make me shiver, giggle of nervousism.

Prize is the same as always. I will review a stuff of yours to the fullest of my ability. Plus you will get a badge.
