The Servant of Evil is a vocaloid part of the larger Evillious Chronicles, but also makes a succinct and emotional stand-alone story. It depicts the tragic tale of a teenaged queen and her twin brother; conspired to be killed by their own advisors so only one could rule. so the boy is sent to a friend of the royal family and at fourteen Riliane is left at the mercy of the adults to rule. As cruel and spoiled Queen she has no one in her life except a servant who resembles her and through a love affair gone wrong, the land of Green is subject to a genocide by the fourteen year old girl's orders which the people decry as the last straw rising in revolt and calling for their Queen's head. Only for her twin to take her place at the guillotine. What sort of tale can you come up with? Must include and center around twins. And, I admittedly will favor on those that follow the style of the original song. Which has a fairy-tale like tone to it. https://youtu.be/otfx3FMqgoA?si=kGgdCZ7YgeBek_DL

Take it your way
Write me a story where an ancient creature - mystical, magical, mythical, legendary, alien - transforms into a human for the first time. The setting is a low-fantasy modern world without an established paranormal/supernatural community.
You’re a green witch helping a town grow as it overcomes its most recent drought… You’re having a lovely day aiding the townsfolk, until a lonesome warlock stumbles into town, broken and battered. As you attempt to help him, you find he has marks insinuating that he practiced necromancy. What would you do next?
The stories that keep us awake
I can’t be the only one who creates entire novel series in my head before falling asleep right? So I would like to see what other writers come up with in the wee hours of the night, while desperately trying to sleep. Write about the story (or stories) that keep you from falling asleep at night. You know, the ones you come up with while you’re trying to fall asleep. With the overly complicated plot line, amazing characters, and awesome adventures. The one that you’ll have to remember to write down tomorrow morning, but you never do. What’s the fantasy story that you create in your head that keeps you from falling asleep, because you NEED to finish the story before you can rest.
Ever wrote a minimalist fantasy??? I realized I've not posted my fantasy works (except one) on the site because I tried to make it minimal. You know, like less magical descriptive words but still retained a sense of fantasy in it. So I dare you to write one cause I couldn't...for now lol. [[For the world building hmmm... Low fantasy or Urban fantasy will do. Maybe something that has to do with a mysterious lake and what miracle and cursed things it does, and a flower, an alive conscious flower, a rarely seen one with an ability to disguise itself and maybe another hidden ability. It's prominent features were being red and it can pull it's own roots so they can move freely on land but they only stay were there are a lot of overgrown vegetation. It will start with a village's annual feast for commemorating their self-proclaimed guardian deity—the so called 'flower', and the main character would be the new head priest who will preside over the feast—but has a secret. The story itself will only revolve around the village and the forest that surrounds it. (Kinda influenced by an eastern fantasy theme)]] I feel like I made it harder when I started adding details but I'll try posting this anyway XD. You can just choose one of what I've mentioned if it's too much for the minimalistic theme though. I'll slowly read your works if you guys decided to make an entry. XDD

If you are a shapeshifter
You can transform into anyone or anything you like but you can never reveal your ability. Once your identity is disclosed, you will immediately disappear from the world. Describe a day living as a shapeshifter through a diary entry. What are your regrets and desires?
Write a horror story involving cosmic horror (otherwise known as Lovecraftian horror). A tale where cosmic beings are in control and humanity is nothing but an insignificant pawn in their game, and the sanity of the main protagonist is truly put to the ultimate test.
