    And another one!

    @Holler; It looks like you're off to a good start. Looking forward to the finished version. Do let me know when you're done with it. And don't worry; you may be living in the future, but you've still got five days left from my point of view

    Re: WOW #2 - April 2016

    Ugh... i don't like this feeling of disappointment, but here I go:

    I sincerely apologize Kowtows

    I didn't expect my school to dump a huge amount of work for me... school break just ended, can you believe it? T.T
    (Holds back from ranting and complaining, seriously, you don't wanna see it as it's unnecessary)

    Still though, I'll definitely try future events when I've got the free time. So please continue churning these events, they're fun to participate in~

    Again, I have to repeatedly say sorry. I don't expect forgiveness, but I will still say my sorry.

    Note: I will still keep my unfinished story there, as a mark of my shame! (or I wouldn't mind if someone continued it from there even if the story turns out different form what I had in mind, if anyone's interested and even though I've only just started it)

    Don't be sorry, you've done nothing wrong Everyone knows what it's like when school break ends. Been there, done that. I'll be looking forward to your future participation, then.

    It's got a pretty interesting offset; I think I could muster up an idea or two for a storyline to branch off it. I may give it a try, if only for fun, though I'll make no promises (as it'll have to contend with my other responsibilities).

    Re: WOW #2 - April 2016

    I'm actually planning on joining this WOW, and I've established an idea too; but being busy and all in real life and the lack of motivation to write these days, I'm not sure whether I can make it to the deadline...

    Anyways~ The point of this message is just to wish all the contestants best of luck (well, not luck, but more just plain best wishes?) I suck in writing reviews, thus I would not do so - but all in all, I really like the messages conveyed by all the stories!

    Thanks for your wishes Considering that the 30th is Saturday, I really won't mind extending it one or two days if that means you'll make it. Besides, with me measuring time from the pacific side of the world, it'll probably mean an additional few hours for others not living in the same longitudinal region.

    Thank you @ancer_nyaa; and @Ignis; for the encouragement! However, with me being the lazy procrastinator that I am (and the piles of homework I still have left for the next week), I'm afraid that I can't complete my story

    Anyways, I'm just going to leave my incomplete story here if anyone wants to read/complete/revamp it:
      Spoiler: Incomplete story 
    Alice in “Wonderland”

    Since a tender age, Alice had always been fond of rabbits. Hopping anywhere without a care despite their limitations and lack of wings – surely, this is what freedom means, Alice thought. And so she wished hard; she craved to meet her own White Rabbit, a depiction of her own “freedom”. However, little did she know that God had taken a whimsical liking to this wish of hers.

    --Tick tock, tick tock. The clock struck one.

    I’m late! I’m late!

    A voice resembling that of a broken record played out in Alice’s mind as she dashed across the streets for her sister’s errand. Despite fearing how her sibling would definitely condone her for her tardiness, Alice’s legs instinctively headed towards an alley far across. Despite her subconscious yet unnatural action, she knew her reason for doing so, for she was sure that at least for a second, she had taken caught of a glimpse of a White Rabbit there.

    Caterpillar arc – where Alice met with the Caterpillar smoking a hookah and was compelled to eat a magic “mushroom”.

    Cheshire Cat arc – where Alice came across a trickster of a cat, leading her even more astray in Wonderland.

    Mad Hatter arc – where Alice had what was called a “tea party” with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare; by the end, the present Alice had become merely a shadow of the innocent Alice.

    Queen arc – where the ruler of Wonderland was introduced and Alice was reunited with the White Rabbit; a chain of events led to the killing of the Queen by the hands of our dear protagonist.

    --Tick tock, tick tock. And the clock stopped ticking.

    Everything was nothing but darkness. A pair of blood-red eyes shone dimly, slowly tracing its surroundings and finally resting upon a corner, wherein lied the rotting remains of the “Queen”.

    “Filth.” The owner of those eyes muttered as she stood up, her hair and clothing in disarray.

    With a knife in one hand, she limped towards the door of the room she had been trapped in. To her dismay, it creaked open, revealing the presence of an unknown man. A smirk grew on her face as she noticed the package of white powder in the man’s hands; brandishing her knife, her movements became more fluid as she approached him. A soft breath passed out of her lips as she spoke:

    “I finally found you – my White Rabbit.”

    Understandable. I'm just glad those days are behind me now (I know I'll miss them one day, but still). Your story is off to a great start. I suppose an Alice in Wonderland plot having a dark twist isn't exactly new, but I tend to like that. I just can't resist the transition of a plot that initially looked all jolly and innocuous into a "what went wrong?" kind of event provided it's written nicely.

    Between yours and Holler's, both stories conjure up ideas in my head I'd like to see expanded, but sadly, I've got my own time constraints as well. I'm definitely looking forward to your participation in the future rounds and hope you'll both have the leisure for it and be inclined to enter again.

    It turned out great! I'd be lying if I said the story didn't feel rushed as I read it, but you nonetheless managed to keep the flow smooth and not diffused. I do have a soft spot for that kind of plot, even though I prefer girl meets girl to boy meets girl, so it also roused my feels, so to speak. A slice-of-life story with a positive angle to it actually feels refreshing amidst an assortment of short stories with a dark slant. Doubly so when the theme actually suggests something nice.

    Also, I see that you've made some edits to the entry; are you still going to edit or add to it? Because I totally can wait. It's still pretty early anyway.
