TWA #22 – Animal Within Battle Thread

“Marshall in the Bayou” by Alyse DeVan

“Hunter and Hunted” by Joseph Devon


The Animal WithinAnd we’re off and running with this week’s challenge!

Our authors were asked to write a story in which a character turned into an animal.

What sorts of bestial transformations do we have in store for us?

Let’s check it out.

Representing the arena this week we have Joseph Devon with “Hunter and Hunted.”

Challenging him is Alyse DeVan with “Marshall in the Bayou.”
Battle #22 is now live!

Read, comment, vote, enjoy!

We have two judges that will render their decision by Friday. The third vote comes from you, the readers. We ask that you read both stories objectively, and then leave a comment below or on the story itself. Authors are not allowed to comment on their own stories, but we’re sure they’ll be checking in here. We’ll tally up the totals and announce our champion on Friday.

  1. Gotta say it: I enjoyed “MITB”, but was left wanting more. “HAH” on the other hand left me agog. WOW. Have to throw my vote to the Arena this week.

  2. Joseph demonstrates why he’s a tough opponent, but I have to say (again) I want to read more by Alyse. This was a thoroughly entertaining and interesting match. Thanks to both writers for turning out stories I wanted to read several times before committing to a vote!

    • She is just getting started on her writing career too. I want to say this was her first short since graduating this year, so there should be more sometime soon.
