    The rules in detail are here, but the TL;DR version is:
    • Anyone can enter, including staff/moderators. Obviously, if you're judging a competition then you're at liberty to enter but unlikely to win :p
    • Keep it clean and keep it Pony. No crossovers, please (not even seemingly 'obvious' ones) and nothing that's NSFWoona. NSFW content will be reported to the moderators and dealt with appropriately by them.
    • Respect the word limit - a few words over is fine, but don't go nuts. You don't need to be bang on the word limit, either - shorter is probably preferable to longer anyway.
    • Once you've posted an entry, you're free to edit it providing you do so before 23:59 on the 'closing date' - judges will go by created/edited timestamps for this (these will appear at the foot of your post)
    • Pre-reading the work of others, whilst not explicitly disallowed, is discouraged - however, if English isn't your first language then having a 'native' pre-read it for grammar/spelling or whatever is fine.
    • Pretty much anything goes with regards to writing style: prose, verse, prosimetrum or a haiku - the sky's the limit. Feel free to experiment with styles you're 'unfamiliar' with - this isn't FiMFiction, nobody's going to flame you into oblivion.
    [*] - Note that Equestria Girls isn't considered a crossover; EqG-based stories are perfectly acceptable.

    THE THEME: Down on the (rock) farm
    WORD LIMIT: 100

    Last time around we had Pinkie, this time it's time for Maud and the rest of the Pie family to hog the spotlight. Or is it? Go ahead and surprise me!

    For those planning to write something Maud-based, watch Episode 4 if you haven't done so already - she gets quite a bit of character development which might spark off a few ideas.

    100 words.

    Kites,

    They're nice.

    No wind on the rock farm,

    Use magic instead,

    No trouble for her,

    That's why I love her.


    No buyers,

    So we took it over,

    She and I.

    Limestone's gone,

    I was next.

    She's happy here,

    I hope,

    She'd tell me if she wasn't.


    I know my rocks,

    She does the sales,

    Builds up trade;

    We're a luxury item,

    in the Crystal Empire.


    Sometimes I wonder

    If it's good for a doctor,

    And her,

    A graduate,

    Of a Princess,

    (Never fails to impress),

    To be here.

    But we are.


    We are,

    And that is enough,

    For us.

    Wow ... that's good.
    That's really good ...

    And I defy anyone not to imagine it in Maud's voice :p

    My offering:

    Marble Pie stared downwards with mild bemusement at the wooden wheel which had just broken loose from her rock wagon. Inkie grey clouds loomed overhead as the evening drew ever closer.

    It had been one of those Mondays.

    "Oh great!" Came a loud exclamation from somewhere behind her, as Limestone Pie came trotting up. "Pah assured me he'd sorted that blasted thing out!"

    Marble looked up, a small smile creeping across her mouth.

    "Um, actually Lime, well, you tried to fix this one."

    Limestone paused, blinking in contemplation. Then she too smirked.

    "Oh, yeah. Right. That went well."
