Fear The Unknown - A Stranger Things Competition

Fear The Unknown: A Stranger Things Competition

We’re three seasons late to this party, but we’re finally here


With season 3 of Stranger Things (2016) already out there and squeezing our tender hearts with that finale, and season 4 confirmed, but without a specific release date, we thought you could use all that creative energy and theories into writing a story of your own. After all, what better way to deal with feelings than to express them in as many forms as you can :)

However, this time, we thought we should challenge you a bit, so to enter this competition, all you have to do is:

  • Set your story in the time period Stranger Things happen
  • Use one or more characters from the show
  • The point of view of the story must be in second person

The second person perspective should challenge you to make your readers feel as if they are part of the story, and every action they take in the story is one they would choose to take if those events really happened to them. That is, if you want to construct your story following this ‘you,’ that’s simply your own character inserted in the Stranger Things world.

Alternatively, the second person point of view could be from one character on the show speaking about another. For example, Eleven narrating the story and using ‘you’ in relation to Mike, or the other way around. You could even have the ghost of someone who died in the show narrating the events that happen after their death and you, the writer, use ‘you’ to refer to the ghost, thus shrouding in mystery who it is that died, and making others leave clues as to the identity of your protagonist...

These are just a couple examples how you could write your story, in case you need something to spark ideas. That being said, you have our permission to go bonkers with this competition!
