The Story Beneath the Song Challenge | April 4th, 2020

The Story Beneath the Song Challenge!

Hello! I'm not really sure how this all works despite having entered many challenges, but! I've been meaning to hold a challenge for like, a year and a half now, so I decided why not bite the bullet? (Also thank you to everyone who voted on the poll, I would've have gone through with this even if I had gotten like one maybe, so eight votes split between 'yes' and 'maybe' was unexpected.)

This challenge is pretty self-explanatory, I think. What happens if you decide to enter is that I put my Soundcloud on shuffle and whatever song shows up is the song you're assigned. Your job is to write a story inspired by the song--it can directly correlate with it or be tangentially related to it. I just kind of want to see how your minds would spin a story given a certain song. There is a catch (I don't want to call it one but uhhh), however. My playlist is mostly consisting of k-pop (and within that genre, BTS). There are some miscellaneous western pop songs and a few bollywood songs thrown in there too, but these days k-pop is what I listen to mostly. I totally get it if it isn't your thing, so I only ask that you try before asking for a different song.

Accepted Fandoms: Harry Potter, Doctor Who, The Flash, Percy Jackson, Grey's Anatomy, Brooklyn Nine Nine, The Good Place, and original fiction. I'm also good for other fandoms given that I can read the story without knowing too much background.

Accepted Ratings: Anything allowed on the HPFT archives!

Deadline: April 4th, 2020

Rules:

1. No pre-written entries, and chapters of currently published pieces (if applicable) are fine. 

2. Have "For sunshine_locks' Story Beneath the Song Challenge" somewhere.

3. Must follow site guidelines. 

4. Multiple entries are allowed! 

5. Entry/entries can be combined with other challenges!

6. Multi-chaps are also fine--just have at least two chapters in the queue on or before the deadline!

7. You are allowed to ask for a different song if it just isn't working for you!

Rewards: 

- All entries will receive a review!

- Award graphics for first, third, and second place! 

- 3rd place: 2 reviews!

2nd place: 3 reviews + a picspam!

1st place: 4 reviews + a picspam + a moodboard!

Picspams and moodboards are customized to your own choosing! Also this is what my picspams look like, generally: x, x, and this is what my moodboards look like: x, x, x, x, x (they're all quite different stylistically).

I'll be honest, I'm not too sure on the song - but I'm up for trying it out. I may be back though.

I'll be honest, break up stories are not my thing. Song is lovely though (I've listened to it a few times.) I'm just not getting a set of people I can write with this song. Sorry.

 

Can I get a new song, please? (and thank you.)
