S&S Invitational: Drama Edition

in Scholar and Scribe2 months ago (edited)

🕺 Welcome to the Scholar and Scribe Invitational 🕺


🧹 HOUSEKEEPING 🧹

I know I owe you a review @trashyomen! I promise it will come faster than last time!

We had a submission that was AI-generated. Please refrain from doing so or you will be muted/downvoted. This community is about creativity and improving our craft.


The Invitational is our bi-weekly, super-duper, writing contest. It is where we match quills and draw blood all for the sake of the craft. We all know a 'friendly' competition never hurts anyone, much, especially when it can be used as a platform to improve your writing. 🙌

🥳 Last Invitational Winners 🥳

🥇 Gold: 50 SCHOLAR, 3 SCRIBE, 2 HSBI, 300 Ecency points
@rinconpoetico7 with Cupid's revenge

Valentine's Day was just a few hours away and Anteros was getting ready with his arrows to go out and spread love to mankind. Every year he did his job, but he watched with surprise how every year people loved each other and then forgot each other. He did not understand what was going on, but this year he would look for the cause of the evil.


🥈 Silver: 40 SCHOLAR, 2 SCRIBE, 1 HSBI, 200 Ecency points
@Trashyomen with The matchmaking competition

Chocolates and bonbons were flying around him, each time a bullet crossed the thin plywood wall it hit a chocolate box or a stuffed animal holding a heart. The gifts were a way better cover than the wall and way more effective than he thought them to be.


🥉 Bronze: 30 SCHOLAR, 1 SCRIBE, 100 Ecency points
@Justclickindiva with Forever Yours, Forever Mine

Although the small restaurant suffered from an even tinier parking lot with only a few assigned spaces in front, it served delicious food, including a tangy Greek dinner salad. The perfect ambience for a single person's night out for self-indulgence. Hannah quickly ordered without hesitation. The weekend Filet mignon special and huge slice of the best cheesecake she'd ever eaten was the ultimate steak companion.


🎖️ Runner Up: 50 Ecency points
@gracepro with Be My Valentine

Luke had just broken up with Sara Bender. She was the most popular girl in school, so even though I didn’t say it it wasn’t like I was surprised. I was his only friend, and two years older. I picked him up everyday from school, but it wasn’t like I was in there with him. Genuinely, I didn’t get why people didn’t like him.

Seeing as how we had our first AI-submitted post on the contest, let's lean into that. I feel like this combo of genre/theme leaves a lot of room for interpretation. I mean, we practically live this combo every day. 😁 Use your creativity and bring us some spicy drama!

May the odds - and your creative energy - be ever in your favor!
