Our First Contest!!  
Hello all! tyreling and I have been working together in making this contest come to life! She has graciously added me on as a co-mod here, though I will mostly be working for the contest.

Each month, a theme will be given. All pairings all welcome, and you may write anywhere from a drabble (100 words) to a oneshot (2000 words).

This months theme is:

You are free to interpret as you choose.

This will be due in a month's time on September 30th 11:59pm EST. No late entries will be accepted. If you are unsure of timezone, please look HERE.

At that time, a voting post will go up and you will vote for your three favorite entries. In the event that there are less than five entries, only a 1st place winner will be awarded.

Winners will receive a banner made by tyreling.

As with all contests there are rules. No worries nothing overbearing, just a few house rules.

*Please tag your entries with the pairing and the two contest tags (m: contest entries) and (theme: melody). If your pairing is not listed in the tags provided, please let myself or tyreling know and we will create one for you.

*All entries must be new and for the contest.

*When posting your entries, please be sure to use the proper format which is

subject line: [contest: title] [rating]


*Alternate Universe and Crossovers ARE allowed.

I hope this goes well, and can't wait to see everyone's entries! If you have any questions, please let me or tyreling know :)

It says due on Sept. 30th. Can it be submitted before then? And will it not be okay to put it up over at ff.net until after?

(Thanks for clarifying the post format, browneyedmami! :D)

yes, you can submit it anytime between now and september 30th

as for submitting it to FF.net, I would say that's fine, but it has to be posted here first and has to be an original story for the contest.

Interesting. If I'm not too busy I think I'll give writing a try. Ü September 30th, hmm. At any rate, good luck to those who are planning to join. Ü

Can it be any rating? :O!

Another question! Is there a word limit? It says anywhere from a drabble to a oneshot (2000 words). Is 2000 words the establishing criterion to classify it as a oneshot, or can our entries only be 2000 words and no more? ;
browneyedmami: la corda fics modbrowneyedmami on September 28th, 2009 12:48 am (UTC)
2000 (oneshot) is the max you can write. so more or less your word count limit is anywhere between 100 and 2000.

DAMNIT ALL. My entry is 3,500, and if I cut anymore, it'll ruin the story. Damnit all to hell T_T

Oh well. C'est la vie, ne? I'll try to write something else :///

I'd still like to read it! I've been looking for more good La Corda fics to read. I think ive read about 90% of whats on ff.net XD

you can post it to the comm or link me to ff.net or wherever :)

I do hope you can come up with something for the contest though! I'll be looking forward to it! We haven't had much sucess, and there's only a few days left :(

Nyaa, I know. I'm just upset because I worked really hard on it and now it all seems for naught. *is an idiot for not understanding the rules until after she was done*

BLAH. Why is there a word limit on the contest? Surely that stifles creativity T_T
