My Bloody Valentine Contest

What better combination is there, than Horror & Cupid? That’s right, we’re collaborating to bring you a horrifically bloody Valentines drabble contest.


The Prompt

During your taxi ride home from an unsuccessful valentines date, you smell something unusual. On the seat beside you is someone else’s coat. You pick it up, in the hope of finding the owners identification in one of the pockets, only to discover that beneath it is a pile of what you really hope aren’t human hearts…

Your task is to write a drabble based upon the prompt given about. You do not have to include the text of the prompt within your entry.


The Fine Print

  • Entries should be exactly 100 words in length.

  • Entries should be submitted via the comments section of the My Bloody Valentine chapter in either the Horror or Cupid profiles’ contests books.
    Horror: https://www.wattpad.com/828240903
    Cupid: https://www.wattpad.com/831192344

  • Entries should be submitted by 23:59 GMT, February 29th 2020 . Any entries submitted after this time and date will not be considered eligible for judging.

  • Entries should be written in English. Unfortunately we do not have any other language capabilities at this time.

  • Both Fanfiction and mature content are permitted. However, ensure your entry meets Wattpad’s Rules and Regulations.

  • Entries will be judged by a trained team of Ambassadors working both the Horror & Cupid profiles.


The Prizes

All entries meeting the above requirements that score highly enough will feature in the ‘My Bloody Valentine Anthology’ and be posted on both the Cupid & Horror profiles. Should your entry be one of those lucky ones, you will receive a dedication on the relevant chapter and a ‘My Bloody Valentine Winner’ avatar sash.


Best of luck to all who enter!

Wow! Do we get contests like this every month. This isn’t really my type, but it would be really cool to have different themes like this per month.

I got my entry in. Thank you for letting me participate.

I do have a question though, are we allowed to comment / reply to anyone’s story?

The reason I ask is because there are some good ones people submitted and I would like these authors to know that they did a good job.

If it is a No, No; then I will refrain.

I’ve seen people responding to posts that they like, so I think it’s allowed

What the heck, “Driver, is this your package, it seems to be apart from smelling, leaking,” I say, the driver looks in the mirror, I can see just her eyes, she pulls over, turning round ”What seems to be the problem,” her arm leaning on her seat as she says this.
“Either you’ve had a bad Valentine’s Day or your a bit of a collector” I reply, the doors locks flick shut, she reaches down then pulls up what looks a very sharp knife,”Your right I’ve had a bad Valentine’s Day, but glad your here to make up the numbers,”

Well I have a story on line for people to read and a few are, I got a message saying some award for being on line on consecutive days and I have a few followers and chat to some others ?

Where did you get that message and have you PM’ed the profile(s) about it? That is if you can even post in PM

Hi
I must be missing something, I’ve checked all your ‘here’ prompts but still at a loss where to put the entry, also if it would accept?
I’ve gone to the horror prompt, checked your web site, but still scratching my head.
