Hmmm, I might give this a try considering the deadline isn't until August. But I've not got any experience with stories so long, does it have to have an ending or could it be more like an extract, even if it isn't?

arandomshadow - It can be anything you like, but if it's not a story in itself you may find that you'll lose out when it comes to the judging!

Ah ok. But at the length it is it would be difficult for it not to be a story...

I'll be entering this one too, methinks, except I don't reckon I'll go for humour - didn't work so well last time. :-\ Anyway, I have an idea, and I'll see if I can get it ready in time and long enough.

Hehe... as distant I am from fluff, I have a great idea. I see it too clearly to pass up. Lets just hope I can express it in good enough words ^_^

I just have to decide on the angle...

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

Ha! I've stolen a march on everyone!

Mine is just a page or two from completion.

Though knowing myself, I'll scrap it in favor of something else. I invariably do.
