SHORT STORY COMP - 40TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL
« on: 03 February, 2017, 10:03:41 am »
Greetings, losers and boozers (and boozy losers)

There's been a break whilst I recharged my batteries (seventeen AAA), but after having seen some of the awesome art that was created from the crossover comp I just had to get back on the horse (we're just good friends).

SO HERE IT IS:

A change from the norm here....

1) Comment with your intent to enter the comp or message me)
2) I will allocate you a 2000AD character
3) Write a story, 500 words or less, as told my that character about their own experience (in their own words as it were). Imagine it all taking place round a campfire.
4) Any subject is okay, just stay in character!

Now that's not at all confusing, and I know we've got some great stories ahead of us.

No two people will get the same character, so we will not a get a bazillion Dredd ones (although nothing to stop another character telling of how they met him... oh blarg I've done it now).

We'll run this until mid March, and I'll see you all at the 40th bash in London. Look for the lad with the Bad City Blue shirt (natch)

Not done it before, but I was a lucky voter last time so I will give this one a go.

Why not? I'm in too, although I'm dreading what the spinning wheel will bring... Aunty's Choice would be nice. ;)

Blimey - I have a kip and everyone wants to play.

let's see what I have in me big bag of twothy characters...

RAGGED MAN - Zenith

URSULA K - ACE GARP

LEGENDARY SHARK - WALDO "D.R" DOBBS

MINKYBOY - DURHAM RED

STEAMRUNNER - SINISTER/DEXTER

MODERN PANTHER - MAX NORMAL

TIMOTHY - RO JAWS

Phew.... I've manhandled me bag way too much this morning...

I suppose I should get a character too, and as I'm the big boss it seems appropriate I should tell a tale of THARG THE MIGHTY!

Thanks for playing, chums and pals, look forward to reading your entries

Well, the chances are high that I'll get a character I know nothing about but as long as it's not Nikolai Dante or something I guess I'll have time to catch up. Fire up the randomatron and I'll cross my fingers...
