Final Fantasy Fanfiction Challenge- Pandemic Edition


It's been a year since COVID-19 has swept through our communities, altering all of our lives in unforeseeable ways. While returning to a "normal" life might be a long way away for many of us, this fandom gives us a safe place to return to what was familiar. With that, I am issuing a Final Fantasy challenge!


The Challenge: A global pandemic has interrupted Final Fantasy's worlds. Pull from your own experiences. How have you coped? What has your experience been like? How would that translate into your character's world? Your body of work could include humorously light coping strategies (like a misguided effort into baking bread or projects to pass the time) AND/OR take on more challenging subject matters like isolation, illness, or loss.


Guidelines:


Timing: Well, we don't know when Covid will end, but this challenge will run from now until July 31st.

Posting: In the story's description, lead with PandemicChallenge so people can find your works.

Email your submission or link: ff pandemic challenge (Make that all one word with no spaces). I will do my best to add everyone into a collection.

If you have an alternative idea that you wish to include under the Pandemic Challenge that doesn't quite fit in with these guidelines, that's okay too. Just write in the story description PandemicChallenge(alt).


The purpose: This is meant to bring us together and start communicating creatively again. It's my belief that the process of storytelling contains powerful healing properties that benefit us at this time.


The Pandemic Bi-Weekly Prompt Challenge:


For those who wish for an extra challenge, we are offering a bi-weekly prompt challenge as well. These challenges may have theme, character, or word count limitations. First prompt will start March 13th and will be shared on Discord: DM me for invite. I'll also update on Community spots and forms.


Guidelines:


Timing: These will be disclosed bi-weekly, but there is no time limit for completion.

Posting: Use the PandemicChallengePrompt as a tag in the description.
