You thought you’d never see any of our beautiful faces on camera again, didn’t you my minifigs? But HERE WE ARE! See one of our lovely interns star in this high-budget, expertly directed, extremely artsy video prompt!!
Write a short story, no longer than 2000 words, that is inspired by the video above. The characters, details, and genre are up to you. Is this a sinister kidnapping or an innocuous party game? A secret mission, or a horrifying plot? Your story can be set before, during, or after the events in the clip. Be creative with it!
Instructions on how to enter:

-Be sure to press “Publish Now”
-Wait the hour or so it sometimes takes for entries to show up BELOW.
The deadline is Thursday, July 7 at 6pm EST. Entries will be accepted immediately. One entry per person. As always, no contest entry promotion of any kind is allowed on Figment. Then YOU decide the finalists by voting on your favorite entries; you can vote until Thursday, July 14th at 6pm EST. The top 10 hearted entries and 10 randomly selected entries will be our winners. The winners will be edited and reviewed by our shockingly intelligent and endlessly witty staff – WE KNOW.
1. One entry per person, please.
2. The promotion of your contest entry is not allowed on Figment. This includes self-promotion and the promotion of other users’ contest entries in the Figment forums, the comments and reviews of stories, and the Figment Facebook page. Independent promotion on sites unrelated to Figment, like personal Facebook or Twitter accounts, is fine.
3. Works must be submitted according to the instructions above between the announcement of the contest and the closure of the contest. Entries created before the start date or after the end date will not be included in the pages of contest entries and will be ineligible to win. This means a new book must be created for the contest; adapting an old work published before the start of the contest will make the entry ineligible to win.
4. The rules of the contest are both strict and open to interpretation by a moderator.
5. The creation of multiple accounts to heart or otherwise vote for your contest entry on Figment is prohibited, and may result in the disqualification of that entry, the deletion of your Figment account, and/or the blocking of your IP address permanently from the site, at the moderator’s discretion.
