Caveat Emptor (Buyer Beware): Maybe an HEA? Contest


Caveat Emptor or Buyer Beware

When you read an angsty story, do you automatically presume it will end in an HEA? Or do you hold your breath as you're rounding the final bend?

Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware! All contest submissions need to be the angstiest, gut wrenching, how could this possibly end in an HEA or does it? - type fic!

Cheaters, liars, those who betray: they come in different shapes and sizes and not all are able to redeem themselves.

Submissions need to embody this type of story - and please keep us guessing until the very end.

Good luck to all entrants!!!
