Theme

Jem & the Holograms are in Seattle to perform at GrungeCon. And they ask Regine to design fashions for the show. Can Regine really design something outrageously glamorous and grunge at the same time?

  • The original story you submit should be set in Seattle or the surrounding Washington area.
  • Your story should feature Regine. Other characters can be included, and what happens on this journey is up to you, but Regine must make an appearance somewhere in your story.
  • Coffee should at least be mentioned once.
  • The phrase "Straight From The Heart" should be mentioned once.

By entering this contest the entrant agrees that the submitted work is their own original story. Authors are allowed to submit multiple stories.
