Stands at the sea,
wonders at wondering.
I, a universe of atoms,
an atom in the universe.

Richard Feynman

How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.

Arthur Clarke

Ocean is more ancient than the mountains, and freighted with the memories and the dreams of Time.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft


Welcome everyone! This is the first contest of the year, and considering the results from the survey, I'm happy to inform you all: you're going to write about fish and water stuff! Oh yeah, it was all a macabre plan so as to choose the one with the least votes! Don't you think it's great? It's still a very good choice.

Let's get to the point, it's not difficult to explain. You need to make an article related to the aquatic concept. Indeed, ranging from places and events, to anomalous species and monsters, all related to aquatic environments. There is a wide range of possibilities! Examples? Well, we’ve got a submarine with an odd crew, weird sea journeys, epic kaiju fights in the North Sea, literally crab mankind, an octopus girl pursued by sharks or a fall into the void from somewhere in the sea.

For more information, you can refer to the aquatic tag. It is always a Good idea to consult external sources, as there may be some good articles floating around.

Good luck writing about Insmouth or strange things in abyssal zones!1. Or even places of greater brightness, because in broad daylight the most difficult mysteries to solve are still hidden. Surprise us with what you have to give. Stay tuned and keep reading for all the information you need.
