I had a Chrono Cross/Trigger dream a few weeks ago, so I think I'll put that into written form and use that.

It's not ABOUT a dream, but it actually WAS a dream, so does that count?

Hm, sorry, but, DOUBT!

Can I send as many entries as I please or is there a limit per person?

Just one, I guess. It shouldn't be hard to put that CT/CC dream into a dream theme, hehe.

I haven't fanficed in a while, but it's always fun to do this sort of thing. I'll figure something out, though. Bear with me; I'm completely unfamiliar with the concept of the Dream Devourer. The only thing I can think of when I hear that is 'Gastly used Dream Eater!'.

I had a Dream about the Compendium and CT the other day, but it's ridiculastupid. (Making up adjectives is fun) Maybe I'll write a story version anyways...

I'm still a bit confused.  It has to be dream related but it doesn't matter what kind of dream as long as it's a Chrono character.  Is that right?  And also, is there a restriction on length?  And last, does it have to be Winter related?  These are just a few things I figured I'd better clarify.

Dreams in general, which is a big theme in the Chrono series, or dream characters; anything is fine as long as it's related to Dreams. Word limit is flexibly 3,000 and no Winter tie-in necessary.

Okay, thanks a lot.  I guess I'll give it a shot.

I've started writing it now. It's interesting, to say the least. There's not much going on with the Dream Devourer, save a quick reference. Or two.

Do we attach the file to the email or just send the whole thing as the message?

I'll enter again, I guess...Maybe a slice of life about the Dream Team hanging out, reminiscing about Chrono Trigger & saying how cool a new game would be...

Or maybe just something with Magus again...>_>

I believe attaching the file would be much more clean and easy to organize entries afterwards. But it's not up to me, so...

I had started writing one about dreams some time ago, and already had another one about the same thing in mind. I guess I'll write both and just pick the best one for the contest.

Ah! Ah! One more thing. Should I write it in oneshot, chapters or whatever I please? (even though 3000 words may already not be very adequate for chapters, but still...)
