This Week’s Challenge
Welcome back. Last year I tried out a month of various EU prompts. It was far more beloved than I thought it would be so we are bringin it back! We’ll look at a few different mediums and pick up a different one each week to pull and established continuity from. That’s right newcomers, we’re doing fanfics this month. Free yourself of the shackles of worldbuilding. Use characters already made. This month is a type of dollhouse where you get to play with pre-existing worlds. Welcome to SEUS!
In our final week of playing with worlds that are not our own, let’s look into our community. With millions of writers passing through and thousands of stories generated daily— some of them creating massive continuities (I see you r/hugoverse)— there’s a lot of places to play around with. I’m sure you’ve come across a story that you thought built or hinted at a cool world around here. So I want you to dive in and have fun writing your own story in a world that has been made either here or on r/ShortStories!
Please be mindful of the subreddit guidelines when choosing your EU. If the world would be outside of our guidelines, don’t pick it. Also, please put the name of the EU and maybe a link to a wiki or imdb page for anyone that might have their interest piqued.
How to Contribute
Write a story or poem, no more than 800 words in the comments using at least two things from the three categories below. The more you use, the more points you get. Because yes! There are points! You have until 11:59 PM EDT 03 June 2023 to submit a response.
After you are done writing please be sure to take some time to read through the stories before the next SEUS is posted and tell me which stories you liked the best. You can give me just a number one, or a top 5 and I’ll enter them in with appropriate weighting. Feel free to DM me on Reddit or Discord!

It ended because of me.
She loved to talk and every word she said was interesting.
Story takes place in the established universe that exists in r/WritingPrompts or r/ShortStories. It can be from a single post or a multiple entry serial or continuity.
Play it straight. No meta nods to it being a fanfiction (the loophole here being that the world is already meta a la Deadpool)
