Monstrous May Challenge 2021

This May, from the 1st to the 31st, it's time for the #MonstrousMayChallenge 2021!

There's a monster-themed prompt for every day of the month, and you're invited to make art, write fiction, make joke posts, graphics, manips, podfic, essays, meta, and anything else you can think of!

The Monstrous May Challenge was created with original creations in mind, but fan creators are more than welcome to participate, and we'd absolutely love to see your contribution! Just make sure when posting to add your works posted here on Ao3 to this collection, and to employ the #MonstorusMayChallenge hashtag on Twitter or Instagram, and the MonstrousMayChallenge tags on Tumblr if you're sharing there!
