Fiendish Fan Fiction Contest

Fri Sep 20, 2013, 9:15 PM

F e l l a . Halloween by thekidKaos

UPDATE 10/31/13 - Tomorrow, Nov. 1st, at midnight (11:59 PM PST) is the cutoff date to get your entries in! If you want to participate, get those stories submitted in before then! :onfire:

Bring Out the Monsters!


About this time every year, ghastly fiends slink out from their hidden lairs. Horrendous beasts come forth to feast. Our nightmares spring to life. It's time to imprison these horrors safely into story form in our Fiendish Fan Fiction Contest! The theme for this contest is "Monsters and Creatures." :zombie:

Halloween is fast approaching, so let's celebrate by breaking out the pens and pencils (or keyboards)! :typerhappy:

This contest will run from Sept. 20th, 2013 to Nov. 1st 2013.


Please read these carefully. Failure to follow any of these will result in a disqualification. :pumpkin 

Bullet; Orange Fan Fiction only.

Bullet; Orange The theme is "Monsters and Creatures." Your entry must include some kind of monster or creature.

Bullet; Orange Stories must be written on or after Sept. 20th, specifically for this contest.

Bullet; Orange Word count: 3000 words maximum, no minimum

Bullet; Orange Proper grammar, spelling, punctuation is important.

Bullet; Orange Submit your entries to "Contests > Fiendish Fan Fiction Contest"…

Bullet; Orange Stories must comply with dA rules and guidelines (no porn).

Bullet; Orange One entry per person.

Entries Will Be Judged On:

Bullet; Orange Originality. A fan fiction about a woman being cornered by vampires, who then proceeds to beat the undead crud out of them, may seem interesting ... unless it is a Buffy the Vampire Slayer story. That's another day at the "office" for her. Stories will be judged on their uniqueness.

Bullet; Orange Skill. Grammar, spelling and punctuation will be judged.

Bullet; Orange Impact. How much emotional impact does the entry have? Does it make us laugh, cry, tremble, cheer, and so forth?

Wow, it takes a lot of time to finalize the results! Probably because of the many entries we submitted. :O
(Waits in suspense) When exactly will we know the winners?

I haven't counted how many entries we have. But I'll clear out the miscats tomorrow, and that'll give us a better idea. :)
