Story Challenge

THE WRONG ROOMMATE

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it: **write a story inspired by the phrase THE WRONG ROOMMATE!**  
 
Roommate plans gone awry. Spells and potions meant for one roommates affecting the *other* one instead. Coming home to the wrong dorm at night... or, is it now the right dorm, after all? Roommates who aren't what you expected them to be. Roommates who 'came back wrong'. Roommates who make you think, wait, maybe *you* were the wrong roommate all along... A chemist major creates a potion to turn his secret crush into an irresistible gay stud—except it's his obnoxious suitemate who drinks the potion instead. An artist's roommate returns from a remote part of the world, but he's 'come back wrong'... did he always shun sunlight, and did his eyes always glow so hypnotically? A bachelor wizard is driven to his wit's end by his mansplaining roommate who is always 'wrong' about *everything*... so he casts a spell to make him always right, and inadvertently gives him the power to reshape the world. A trio of friends set up a Chronivac so that only they, as roommates, can use it... without realizing they're sharing the dorm with a horny gay ghost, and *he's* now using the Chronivac too...

**The possibilities are endless. What's** ***your*** **story about THE WRONG ROOMMATE?**  
 
We'd love to see your own spin on the prompt! You're also very welcome to take inspiration from any of the ideas above, if they appeal to you.  
 
This story challenge crosses all our sites, meaning your story can be hosted on Spiral, Cupid, Collar, Kinky... or any combination of options. Good luck, and have fun!
The following requirements are enacted for this challenge in addition to the usual site rules:  - The story must be clearly inspired by the challenge prompt.  - Authors of challenge stories are anonymized by the system, and not shown until the final results are up. This is to make voting more fair—and to keep up the suspense! - Authors can only submit one story to the challenge. - A single story with multiple chapters is okay to submit, so long as you upload the chapters during the time frame of the challenge. **However,** no additional chapters to your challenge story can be submitted after the challenge ends when we are in the two-week voting period. (Please note, additional chapters to your challenge story *can* to be submitted after the challenge is over, if you wish to continue your story later, but those chapters will not affect the calculations of the final challenge results.)  
 
Challenge stories are ‘ranked’ based on a calculation combining their best 4 category ratings (aka, the badges) with how many unique Favorites they get. Voting for this particular challenge will continue for two weeks after the challenge concludes, at which point the Top 5 will be announced and all authors will be revealed.

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen” with my own spin on it. What happens when you’re suddenly able to see beyond the mortal plane? Usually, ghosts and ghouls would be out to haunt you but not in this case. Thanks to the power of a Reality-Bending mirror shard, Kai is able to meet a kindred spirit… who is literally a spirit!!
