    Straight from the pages of the WTF Channel, an Orc-ified John Scalzi fights a cat-unicorn-griffin-thing-riding Wil Wheaton, with a volcano backdrop. Why? Well, it's up to you to tell us, in 400 - 2,000 words. Why? For charity.

    Wow! Cheers for this Veho mate, I think I'm gonna enter this myself! I'm not the greatest writer there is but I enjoy it. Highly doubt I'll get anywhere but damnit even miracles happen sometimes! [​IMG]

    It ended on June 30th.
    Too bad I didn't hear about it earlier.

    Well seeing as that's the day after my birthday and I've not had my birthday yet I think I might be safe. [​IMG]

    ...which is in one month. Today is June 2nd.

    You had me [​IMG] for a moment there.

    EDIT: That's the spirit, Trolley [​IMG] I'm sure it's going to be a great read.

    I'm not a bad writer but I don't think I can work with something that obscure. Besides, I only know Wil Wheaton as Wesley Crusher from STNG and I don't have a clue who the other guy is. Pic's pretty funny though.

    Doesn't matter! They're just some guys. You tell us what the hell is going on in that pic, and how come this guy in a clown sweater is trying to spear an Orc... or is he? Maybe he's saving him from something off-screen? And what's that cat-griffon-unicorn thing?

    Get to writing [​IMG]

    WTF, what's up with your times? [​IMG]

    I might enter this, first exams though but afterwards I have two weeks left to write something like that. I'll see. 10 cents per word, eh? So that means 200 dollars if you write 2000 words. Which is about €150. Not bad! [​IMG]

    Fair enough, Veho. I'll see what I can conjure up. If I get anything good I'll post it up here.

    This, but I think I might've seen some other stuff too. Obviously not as memorable.

    Nice picture. Do not aim 2000 words to max a possible income but a good story to win ;-)

    I won a price for a short story ( and a Literary award ) when I was younger and they paid me with some books & a bank account ( filled with approximatively 100 € ) but english is not my mother tongue... I will check further : GOOD LUCK ALL !

    Is this open to international people?

    And as Sheldon Copper would say:
    "Die Will Wheaton DIE!!"
