To the sky!


From da Vinci to the Wright Brothers, from Icarus to the Dragon Riders; flight doesn’t come natural to humans, but we always longed for it. It is our dream to conquer the sky with paper airplanes or spaceships, with a gift from the gods or by taming the winged beasts. It doesn’t matter how, but we will fly.

Spread your wings, my fellow writers, because for this writing competition I invite you to write a story about flying.




Core rules:
  • At all times follow the Fundamental Rules of the Guild and the Moderation Policy for Forum Contests.
  • After reading the above this should be obvious: No plagiarism and respect copyright laws.
  • The story you submit must be written by you and specifically for this contest.
  • This is a place for original fiction, no fanfiction allowed.
  • No explicit sex, but you may fade to black.
  • No excessive violence or gore.
  • Please subscribe to this thread.


Contest rules:
  • For this contest there are no restrictions to the theme.
    Just like the freedom that comes with flying, be free in what you want to write about, as long as it is about flying in one way or the other.
  • There will be a minimum word count of 500 and a maximum of 5000
  • Please PM @Calle the entries and give it as title RPGC#27 - (Your Title).
  • Your entry can be anonymous or carry your name. Let me know what you want in the PM. If you don't specify, your entry will be posted anonymously, but you may always claim your story during or at the end of the voting round.
    Even for anonymous entries, the name of the writer will be added to the entry in the Hall of Fame.
  • The deadline is June 30th, 9:00 GMT+1, which is 7:00 game time (both times are in a.m.)

I look forward to your entries.

Also, a slight change in plans. Instead of posting here, please PM me the entries, with the number of the RPGC and the title of your story. I will edit the information in the first post.

And I will keep track of the number of entries received in the first post too.

I like the concept and I have a rough idea so I'm definitely going to try and get a decent story written before the deadline.
Will do my very, very best to not procrastinate either this time XD

While 1/3th of June is gone, we still have 2/3th of the month left to complete the stories and submit them!

Don't procrastinate too much, my fellow writers. You have a month, which means that if you finish fast you have time to properly proof-read your entry and improve your chances of winning! I found that I caught the most mistakes when I was able to put the story aside for a few days.

I look forward to seeing what stories you come up with.

Also, you can submit your entry anonymously if you want, but if you rather claim your story from the start that is good too! Just let me know in the PM with your entry if you want your name added to your story or if you wish to remain anonymous.

Okay people, ten days left before the deadline. I'm looking forward to see what you all wrote!

Try not to submit at the last moment, if the timestamp of your PM is after 12 Jun 2020 7:00 game time it will be disqualified and lag is not a valid excuse. And keep an eye on the word count too.
Remember to send your entries to me in a PM, with the number of the RPGC and your title as the subject. And let me know if you want your story to be anonymous or not.

The last 24 hours before the deadline have begun. For those who wrote a story and didn't send in yet: now is the time for a final read-through and then send it in a PM to me.

This writing competition is now closed for new entries.

Please go to the Voting and Feedback thread to vote for your favourite entry. Feedback for the entries is welcome.

We have three entries, so a voting period of two weeks should be enough. To fill the time between the voting and the new RPGC that will start in August, we will have a mini-writing competition during the second half of July. Details for that will be shared after the voting period closes.

Been away from RPGC for a few years now, and I can't BELIEVE this is the prompt I miss

@Silver If this theme sparked the idea for a story you can still write it; if it's not for a contest you can write it for yourself and I would still love to see what you did with the theme.

The next RPGC will start in August, but there will be a mini-contest between the voting period (which ends in two days) and the new RPGC.

I hope the next RPGC will be inspirational too.

The voting period is over and the winning entry has been added to the RPGC Hall of Fame.

August 1st the next RPGC will begin. New month, new theme, new chances to get a place in the Hall of Fame!

For now there is a Microfiction and Poetry Contest to kill the time between the two RPGC's.
