Why a RapeCage story contest?

Some of these things are true and some of them lies. But they are all good stories.
―Hilary Mantel

The story of The RapeCage Story Contest is this:

Once upon a time, there was a club of friends with an unusual interest. One day their clubhouse disappeared and the friends were scattered to the winds. A little while passed.

A man and a woman built a new clubhouse. To the new clubhouse, they invited all the friends they still knew how to find. Then, one of those friends hung a sign outside the door, reading: "Welcome! Warmth and wine within."

This is that sign.

So, anyway.

The purpose of The RapeCage Story Contest is this:

It's a special effort to make writers welcome here. We love your words and we're grateful for them. The master-crafted and the little heartfelt tales wobbling around on newborn lamb legs and all in between. When you join the contest, you'll be competing against other writers and against yourself, to make something pretty and meaty out of the three themes someone else picked to challenge you. This, too, is intended to be fun.

It also doesn't hurt that winners get to wear a shiny new badge as they join an elite membergroup:

Sometimes we readers read and forget to leave a comment, or can't think of the words and forget to come back later, or are reading as a guest and feel like signing up just to say hello would be too embarrassing and take too long. This is also an effort to be better about all of that.

We know a lot of people flit around the site and don't sign up or post. This is also an effort to entice them in.

Get chasing, biting and hunting, everyone! Words are your weapons. Make sure they're sharp.

she thought really hard about biting them so hard they would almost feel it, and they ran away because scawypet is scawy. ~kittyumbrass

That explanation was beautiful in itself, well done!
If there is beauty in the breaking then make me gorgeous.

She does have a silver tongue, that one... And a tale to drive men mad...

We begin the story with .. " welcome, warmth and wine within " ? And start from there ?

No. Start the story however you like. Just make sue it fits in the word count limit for the contest cycle and matches the theme. Both of those will be in the Submissions announcement thread.

Ingenue is simply spinning a yarn about the site and the contest coming together when she posted those words.
