challenge name: the angsty taylor swift challenge
challenge deadline: 15 june 2021
accepted fandoms(s): harry potter, the 100, original fiction, alternate universes, simon vs the homosapiens agenda (if there's another fandom you're interested in writing, that's probably fine as long as i don't need a lot of canon knowledge to understand the story)
accepted ratings: give it all to me pls (yes smut is fine too)
challenge details: 

hey, friends! so if there’s one thing i’ve learned about this community, it’s that a lot of us love taylor swift, and rightfully so. she’s the queen of breakup and angsty songs, and since i love angst, i figured this would be a fun challenge. i want you to take an angsty taylor swift song (sad angsty, angry angsty) and write me a fic based off of it. that's it; that's the challenge ^_^ it's gonna be judged primarily on how well y'all execute the angst and make me feel things, so have fun! go all out. be dramatic. i want to need tissues or throw things and yell in your reviews :elmofire:

if you’re stuck, i’ve got a playlist of 45 angsty taylor swift songs, so you can reply to this with a number and i can give you a song. multiple people can use the same song and you can change it up to three times 

otherwise, have fun, and please feel free to ask any questions ^_^

rules:

  • entries must be posted on the fft archives and follow the site guidelines
  • must have “for dreamshadow’s angsty taylor swift challenge” somewhere in the story summary/notes
  • no pre-writtens allowed, but can be new content for an existing universe or story as long as it stands on its own
  • can be combined with other challenges
  • multichapter fics should have two chapters up (or in the queue) by the new extended deadline
  • multiple entries welcome

prizes*:

  • all entries will receive 1 review
  • 3rd place will receive an award graphic and 2 reviews on stories of your choosing 
  • 2nd place will receive an award graphic and 4 reviews on stories of your choosing
  • 1st place will receive an award graphic, 6 reviews on stories of your choosing, and a picspam inspired by your story

*depending on how many entries there are, there might be room for some honorable mentions who will receive 1 additional review on a story of their choice

happy writing 💖

I’m gonna ignore the fact that I have 2 other WIP fics for another T Swift challenge & ask if Back to December is an option? (I know I’m old as hell w/this request 😅).
