Categories: No category
Characters: Original Character(s), Other, Various

Description: This is a fairly simple it would seem...the objective is to create 36 stories (one shot or otherwise), each using one of Georges Polti's 36 Dramatic Situations, and put them into a series and submit it. There are several lists online that explain them in detail. You may submit real-life stories if you like, but this challenge lends itself more to fiction.

Here are the 36 Situations:

1. Supplication
2. Deliverance
3. Crime Pursued by Vengance
4. Vengance Taken for Kindred Upon Kindred
