The very meta Stan Lee

Okay, peeps, Time_Phantom has some stuff keeping him away from Comic Vine, but he sent a PM with his contest idea, and asked me to set it up. So, here's the theme: A Talk With The Creator.

Your OC for this contest is the fiction version of any comic or writer you choose, interacting with their character, and the character's world. In Time_Phantom's words:

My idea was to have the prompt be about writers being able to actually speak with their Characters and interact with the world's they've made.

Can be a fan fic (like Spider-Man asking Stan Lee what Brand New Day was about or Liefeld telling Deadpool why he can't draw feet and why so many pouches.)

Or an original story with OC's.

That second part means that your story's OC can be YOU talking to YOUR character, and interacting with their world.

No word limit, and the deadline is in two weeks. So, Thursday, December 13, 2018 @11:59pm New York time. (click the link if you're unsure)

Remember: All are welcome to compete, and the winner gets to pick the next contest.

I'm really glad you're here! Have fun, and see you in fourteen days! :^D

@time_phantom, your contest is up. :)

@wildvine or @bumpyboo: Would one of you please pin this, and unpin the CCC 80 Voting Thread, please? Also, please bring your characters and your fictional selves, and join in! ;)

I'm curious to see which OC(s) you choose to chat with. :)

@tommythehitman: As fun as that would be, this is a character creation contest. I'm sure Phantom would be fine with you adding your other OC's as long as a new character is the "main" focus. Shouldn't be hard for you. making original characters is one of your strong suits

@blueecho: Yes and no. Either write as a known writer interacting with their written creation(s) or write as yourself (meta) interacting with your written creation(s)

Not a matter if my characters will interact with me. I have an idea in mind, thing is time for me. However, I did do something similar to this many years ago as part of a Halloween contest. I know it won't count as an entry, but I can share the link here.

@richgenx: I knew your issue was time, Rich'. I was just making a joke.
