Audio Recap: Fight Week



Every story needs a conflict. This week, those conflicts will be physical. You have 1000 words to write me a story about a fight.

The setting is wide open. A duel at high noon. A martial arts tournament championship round. Brothers duking it out in the backyard. A dogfight between giant anime mechs, for all I care. Scale is important, though. We're not talking wars, we're talking fights. Multiple combatants can work, but you're entering the danger zone there, so be careful.

Be mindful: it still needs to be a story. It still needs to have beginnings and endings, plot, all that stuff. Most of all, it needs to have characters worth caring about. If I don't care who wins the fight, you certainly will not win this fight.

Clarity is extremely important! Check your blocking! I don't need your shakycam bullshit in here.

TKOs will be awarded against anyone who dares try to write a metaphorical fight. I want punching, dammit.

NO HOLDS BARRED
(Except FANFIC and EROTICA. You know the rules, fighters.)

PRIZE FIGHTS
From now until SIGN-UPS close, anyone who toxxes into a brawl or judges a brawl gets an extra 250 words.

PUNCHING ABOVE YOUR WEIGHT CLASS
Flash rules get you 150 bonus words. Ask at your own risk. Fight Referee Chili or myself will provide these.

FLASH RULES ROUND 2
You can get another 150 words if you take one of my handpicked classic fights as inspiration. Do with the fight as you will, but it should be clear how the fight inspired yours.

FIGHT TO THE DEATH
:toxx:, get 100 words.
