"February Challenge: Mardi Gras" by Marohi
Categories: Original Stories, Anime & Manga, Books, Cartoons & Comics, Gaming, Movies & TV, Real Person
Description: On February 20th, cities around the world celebrate the final day of Carnival -- most commonly known as: Mardi Gras. Carnival itself is a two-week holiday that takes place before Ash Wednesday / Lent.
The Goal: The goal is to write a story of at least 1000 words about Mardi Gras, Carnival, or a city-wide party.
The story can take place wherever you wish, including in New Orleans, LA. It can be serious or silly, citrusy or clean, religious or just fun, it's all up to you. You can also simply write about a wild, city wide party if your fandom doesn't take place somewhere where Mardi Gras would be held.
Bonus points if you can include any of the following:
- An ornate mask
- A Ball (as in formal dance)
- Throws (items thrown from floats, such as bead necklaces)
- A parade
- A "paddywagon" (large police van meant to transport large groups of arrested individuals)
