Hey guys, ever since the 2014 Summer Writing Challenges were announced, I had wanted to make a thread that contained all of my stories. I didn't figure it would hurt if I went ahead and gathered them all together now that the challenges are over, so here they are! (Oh, there is also a 14th story on here at the end. It wasn't one of the 14 challenges, but I wrote it for another contest earlier this summer and just decided to include it).

By the way, some of these are fan fiction while most of them are original stories. I don't really like writing fan fiction all that much, but some of the challenges required it, so yeah.

I'll go ahead and write the order and the dates in which I completed each challenge, as well as who issued them to me. Enjoy. everybody!

Challenge 11 - Multiple Universe Story: The Walking Dead: At the Crossroads
Personal Challenge
Completed on: July 31, 2014
NOTE: I chose The Walking Dead for this challenge. For those who don't know, there are essentially two universes. There is the Comic Universe (which contains the stories of the comics, Telltale's game series, and the novels), and then there is the AMC tv universe (which contains the stories of the show and the game Survival Instinct).

My story crosses these two universes using the games from each. It takes place between seasons 1 & 2 of the game shortly before season 2 begins, and towards the end of Survival instinct. I have the central characters of each game basically cross paths on their journeys, and I have them explain exactly where they were headed in relation to each game's story. So if you've played the games, you should easily be able to tell where I am slipping this into the story of each game. If you didn't play them, then you just have some insight as to where the characters were headed. Either way, I feel like this meshing the stories together to fit into their canon universes worked out quite nicely.

Also, if you are unfamiliar with The Walking Dead's terminolgy: Walkers, biters, etc. All words for zombie.

Challenge 12 - Horror Story: We've All Been There
Personal Challenge
Completed on July 31, 2014

Challenge 13 - Friendship Story: Balloon Squad Protectors
Personal Challenge
Completed on: July 31, 2014
NOTE: This story is most definitely dedicated to two very good friends of mine. You guys may know them as CD-Man and Sugar Lips. Sorry if you guys don't get all of our little jokes, but I just had to include them. It's just one of those friendship things, you know?

This is the tale of one of our epic days of playing Animal Crossing together, thus some of the randomness. We really area fun bunch, haha. Sugar Lips is Jeri, CD-Man is Casper, and I am Max (of course).

I'm glad you put these in one place, Max! This'll make it easy for me to go over all of them, tomorrow~
I like having them all in one place as well, it appeases my OCD haha.

And yes, tomorrow, after you have won today's contest!

Yeah, I kinda figured, especially since you doctored it up so neatly and put it all in 1 post!

I'm bringing home the gold, baby!
(Or the pin, in our case...-_-)
But I WILL be getting the gold Smash Bros coin for my preorder at SmashFest! Although that's another can of worms.

You'd better hold me to that promise to comment on them all, too. I'm burnt out, but I still need to be motivated to get on for a couple hours tomorrow!

I'll hold you to it, if you hold me to it! I said that I would comment on everything as well, and now that I'm not writing every day, I have more time to read haha.

I know I said it already, but your stuff totally blew me away during the challenges, man. For real these were really well written.
Thanks a lot, man, I appreciate that! It's great to hear that you enjoyed my stories that much.
