Deadline: January 31st, 2020
Topic: A member of a fictional royal family has to fall into regular society for a reason of the author’s choice. We are looking for characters that were once treated as royalty that now must act as a regular citizen. Despite the title, the character does not have to view it as a “step down” or consider themselves “fallen,” and they could easily have made this move by choice. The story does not have to be about this moment of change, any amount of time could have passed.
Additional Information: We will not be accepting historical fiction or royals from non-fictional countries or families. We are also not looking to read a lot of stories where characters are punished for being LGBTQ+, so please use that prompt with caution.
Additional (Optional) Prompts:
- A character making this change to attend college/university.
- A character making this change for their or their family’s safety.
- A character making this change because of their love for a person their family does not approve of.
- A character having a trait (magic, lycanthropy, etc) that their family doesn’t approve of, so they must make this change either to survive or because their family wills it.
