After a long(?) break, SSSC is back once again! There's been some changes made to the rules so please do read it again :blob_aww:

What is SSSC?

Hopefully, you'll gain experience as well as have fun while writing or reading the short stories. Story submitted will be included in an anthology of all the SSSC.

How do you enter?
To enter the competition all you need to do is post your story on the website like normal. After you've posted the story, go to the story's setting and there should be a contest section, select the SSSC IV contest tag and your story will be in the competition!

  2. NSFW stories are allowed but include the corresponding tags and warnings.

  4. Post the story into a single chapter.
  5. Submission period ends on the 27th of May. Voting period ends on the 3rd of June at 23:59 (11:59 PM) GMT Timezone.
  6. Readers vote by favouriting the story chapter.
  7. If you don't want your story to be included into the SSSC Anthology, PM me.

Similar to SSSC III, there are 3 prompts. You can choose one or more as long as your story fits with one of the given prompt!
1.
863


2. There is another world on the other side of the mirror. A character falls through the mirror, and now has to survive their strange situation. (Provided by Ars)

3. Genre: Horror, Key Item: A bottle, Main Character: Cockroach

Prompt number 3 made me think of a post-apocalypse story in a world where the only civilizations left are cockroach ones. And the story would be about a group of cockroaches attempting to find The Bottle - their only hope for salvation.

It gives me Metro and 9 (the movie) vibes.

I probably won't write it. But I really, really want to. So I might.

That is a pretty neat take on #3. You have my full support in writing that one, and I'll be interested in how it turns out. :blob_popcorn:

Hehe, ditto. In the meantime, I'll be thinking on what direction I want this story to flow. :blob_hmm_two:

If so, will we be permitted to enter that contest with the foreknowledge of what is an option?

You won't definitely know because the winner will provide 3 prompts. I'll select one of the three.
