What's this, a letter?

Ooo! Even better!


You are

Cordially Invited

to

...


If the rather oblique prompt above didn't give you ideas, I'll tell you more plainly what this competition is about: You've received an invitation to attend an event. What is the event? Did you RSVP, or is your attendance mandatory? And, of course, what happened there?

You have between the times above to complete and submit your story. Make sure to list your entry below, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. The post below this, as before, will contain answers to any questions asked (including ones I ask myself).

Good luck, and happy writing.

Oh, and one last thing: make sure to show us your invitations. It can be a very simple one like I did above, or you can add a picture of it, if you wish.

I'm going to do something a little unusual here. I have an idea for a story on this, but I unfortunately have writer's block. And I'm not going to have much time this month to really sit down and write. So I would like to see someone take my idea and turn it into a story for this contest.

The idea:

No woman is safe in The Howling Peninsula. Then again, no woman is safe anywhere in the Mardochaios Dynasty. The Howling Peninsula is particularly dangerous for women. That's because 69 years ago a woman led a revolt against the kingdom. The rebellion was swiftly crushed. All who participated were forced to relocate to The Howling Peninsula, a harsh desert wasteland with howling winds that can disorient you or bury you in sand. Surviving offspring of the rebels live in the city of Redwater. The city is a hot slum with a shield dome surrounding it to protect it from the wind and sand. The shield can be deactivated any time the king chooses so that the rebel offspring never forget they are subjects to him.

A particular crime is encouraged in Redwater. Rape and kidnapping of women are common. Murder is frowned upon, but usually what passes for the law looks the other way as long as the woman isn't the property of someone important or pregnant. And few people in Redwater are important. But what makes Redwater so dangerous for women is The Ravishment Games. Every year on the anniversary of the rebellion's defeat, women from The Howling Peninsula are chosen to be in the Games. A group of male prisoners are also chosen to participate in the Games. The Games consist of two phases. Phase 1: Rape as many of the women as you can. No restrictions. The men can do it however they like alone, small group, or all out gangbang orgy. Phase 2: Be the last man standing. No one is killed in The Ravishment Games. An energy field allows someone to go unconscious and temporarily prevents death. Once someone is unconscious, they are removed from the arena by robots. The winner of the Games gets his prison sentence commuted. Most of the women go back home pregnant and are forced to give birth.


To fulfil the invitation requirement of the story, have a lead female character be invited to be part of The Ravishment Games. Or it could be one of the male prisoners. This is about as far as I've gotten with the premise of the story. I'm just stuck on how to start the story and how to incorporate the background information into it. Also it's like The Hunger Games but with the added danger of rape, so I might be stuck due to that too.

Adding my entry for this month's contest...
Difficult Choices

It's a consensual story this time. I enjoyed the premise of the challenge and went through a few different iterations for what the event would be before I came up with something I really liked. I hope you enjoy.

I guess I can throw my hat in the ring this time around.

The rumors about me are scurrilous, depraved rantings of a sick mind, and I categorically deny any sense of falsehood attributed to them.

Bumping this again. It seems Army of One is MIA.
