EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

9 months ago

Well time for another unofficial contest for those interested. It’s free.

Topic of this one is romance since apparently some of you feel we don’t have enough of that around here.

Pretty simple, just write a story where romance takes the center stage. You can do it how ever you want.

Doesn’t need to strictly fit in the Love and Dating section either. If you want to make it horror themed with angsty vampires or scifi themed with androids attempting to figure out the concept of love, you can.

Just make sure that the protagonist has an overall goal of romance.

Now I should point out, I’m using the term “romance” in a very loose sense. If you want to make a hilarious tale about a lightning rod salesman trying to woo an 18 year old farmer’s daughter for the whole purpose of sexing her up while avoiding her ass raping brothers, then yes, that is permitted.

(But not that story because it’s already been done)

Also as if it needs to be said, don’t fucking write graphic porn.

All participants that are currently in the SHAME pit that submit something decent will be let out. Winner will get some more pointless points.

Remember to post links to your stories here if you make one for the contest.

Deadline is March 11th, good luck.

Dammit End. What have you done?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

9 months ago

It has come to my attention that my romance writing needs some perfecting, and what better way to do it than through this venue? I’m in End.

What’s the reward looking like right about now?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

9 months ago

Reward is generally 100 points, but as with all of my contests, it’s completely dependent on my own whims, so it’s probably going to vary depending on what the person puts into it and what they’ve already done so far.

For example if Thotfodder came by and submitted a story, she’d most likely just get out of the SHAME pit and a point reward.

If however someone with already a few decent stories/contest wins submitted something then they might be eligible for more rewards.

This is one of the reasons why Mizal managed to get a shitload of points, a trophy AND a featured story out of these things. True, it helped that she was the only person who joined the last two, but still doesn’t change the fact that she put in the effort to get the warm and fuzzies.

Unfortunately I swore off contests this year.

Although...

I did give myself the entire month of January to piddle around and do whatever before I need to buckle down on my bigger projects. So I suppose if I can throw something together in a week I could still give it a go. Those points are tempting.

Ha ha, I have more options than that.

Song of Solomon 7:6-12 (English Standard Version)

How beautiful and pleasant you are,
    O loved one, with all your delights!
Your stature is like a palm tree,
    and your breasts are like its clusters.
I say I will climb the palm tree
    and lay hold of its fruit.
Oh may your breasts be like clusters of the vine,
    and the scent of your breath like apples,
and your mouth like the best wine.

She

It goes down smoothly for my beloved,
    gliding over lips and teeth.

10 I am my beloved's,
    and his desire is for me.

The Bride Gives Her Love

11 Come, my beloved,
    let us go out into the fields
    and lodge in the villages;
12 let us go out early to the vineyards
    and see whether the vines have budded,
whether the grape blossoms have opened
    and the pomegranates are in bloom.
There I will give you my love.

Well I see as usual everyone is full of promises and enthusiasm, we’ll see how long that lasts. Still, didn't expect so many to join so early.

Anyway, here’s some inspiring love songs to put you in the right frame of mind while writing your romance story. One for each of you.

Digit, Ebon and Wibbons

Love songs? I’m kinda doubting if you know what Love is End lol. On the bright side, if these songs are at all a rubric for what we need to have in the entries, then I think I’ll be fine.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

She’s already married to me, I don’t feel the need to subject her to any more torture by making her read through your stories.

Besides I'm not concerned, if it was really a burden I wouldn't bother holding a contest.

Is a short story in a comment allowed? If so, I'd like to wet my boots and start out small. I've already got a small neat idea lined up.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago
It has to be a storygame.

We've had short story contest before but those are pretty rare and usually not anything you can win 100 points for.

A small but still respectable storygame is entirely doable in even just a day though. Inseperable only took me six hours to write (not counting the planning phase) and wound up being featured.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Damn, made myself a promise to work on just one project at a time. Sad times, but the drunken guy at the club must wait for another competition. I think I'll sit this one out then. Although I'm already looking forward to enjoying all the (feel)good stories with a cup of warm tea. My guess is that the stories will be divided along three main archetypes:

-Some weaboo comedy

-Some edgy comedy

-Naive feelgood romance 

Personally I'm mostly excited for the more traditional third option. 

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago
I'd be surprised if we got that much comedy.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago

At least not intentionally.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Well that's a given. Unintentional comedy is the greatest appeal of this entire site.

I always did feel like not ending a love story tragically was a wasted opportunity though.

A person that no one has ever heard about or cares about decides to enter a contest.  This seems like it will either end up with a terrible graphic sex CYS, half-finished, grammatical mistake ridden piece of garbage CYS, or a broken promise and trip to the shame pit.  Oh well, I'll give it a go.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

You won't get sent to the shame pit if you fail. You can get out but not in. There is no punishment.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Predictions so far.

Digit is going to basically publish “Hunie Pop the CYOA.” With the added incest and rape paths in order to gain favor. While everyone else is pretty much mocking him already he could still potentially win since he’s so driven to his vision that its possible he’ll try to do more with the concept. It’ll also help if he ends up being amusing and everyone else is really fucking boring or I feel like trolling everyone. (Never count out that last one)

Ebon has a whole angels seducing mortals concept. Which sounds alright, but honestly I kept forgetting what he told me he was planning multiple times, which isn’t a good sign. However, since he won the last contest by beating the chicken soup out of Steve, Ebon is probably still on a winning high so he’s probably going to put at least as much effort as Digit is. We’ll see I guess.

Wibbons is going to turn in something written alright technically, but ultimately I’m probably going to be bored by it. Of course my expectations are low, so if he manages to surprise me by not boring me, he might end up winning.

Mizal is a wild card mainly because I have no idea what she’s even planning to do and if she did tell me, I’ve actually forgotten.

(Digit has really won in the propaganda department here because so far his is like the ONLY one I consistently remember what the concept is)

In any case, Mizal generally writes well and has a pretty good idea of what I like, so she’ll probably play upon that a bit while still retaining whatever idea she had. Her weakness is going to be waiting until the last minute to write anything causing her final product to be 50% as good as it could have been.

Mynoris, now in an alternate reality she’d be one to watch out for since I really liked her witch story what with all the slut shaming, sexual assault and hopelessness going on in it. With any luck she’d use those same concepts to make a romance story. (Basically Handmaid’s Tale the CYOA)

However, in this reality she’s most likely going to not turn anything in, so I can forget seeing anything from her.

Orange is going to slack off, so probably not going to see anything from her either and if I do it’ll probably be only marginally more interesting than whatever Wibbons turns in.

Crescent is going to be similar to Wibbons, her story will have the effort put into it, but I’m probably not going to be grabbed by it, unless she puts in some atrocities or something.

Finally we have Malk, who has said something about making a story about gay vikings or some story about some guy traveling to hell to get his wife. Not sure which concept he’s going to go with and he probably isn’t either because he has a similar problem with his real life sexual orientation.

In any case Malk is probably going to at least have a bunch of edgelord shit in his story that’s going to get my attention so he’ll be golden on that and he’s improved in his writing in general. However, he’ll probably be like Mizal in that he won’t actually write anything solid until the last minute making his story not as great as it could have been.

As for the rest of you, I have no idea, but so far you haven’t made any sort of impression other than the ones currently in the SHAME pit which in that case I have even lower expectations of you than I do of the rest of these losers.

I love your predictions. I'm heavily debating if I should do a happy one or an all out dark-fest. It's more of a morals versus a desire to win thing. :)

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Because I'm WIBN. That's why. :)

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

I'm going to put in a prediction for Malk, IF he finishes something. That's a big if of course, he's always pitching ideas left and right and can rarely settle on one, probably also reflective of his state of inner turmoil and confusion on other matters you mentioned.

He'll probably handle the romance elements the most palatable way however, by making them take a backseat to the protagonist graphically driving his spear into countless toned and muscular minotaurs and three headed dogs and the like.

What's this SHAME pit I keep hearing about? And how do I avoid falling in?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Pretty much, if you sign up for an official contest and fail to submit on time, you get put in the pit of shame.  You stay there until you manage to complete a contest.  Others will be able to tell you more specific details, but that's the gist.  

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

This isn't an official contest though so he's good. Just a chance at free points for forcing End to read.

I gotta say though, for all of Digit's (many, many) faults, at least there's only one of him and at least even he seems aware on some level of how ridiculous he is.

Now take a moment to imagine if this contest had instead been run two years ago, and all the cringey directions it might have gone.

Oh ya. I'm geting out of the pit this time for sure. I'm at over 1000 words in two days and I am doing about 500 words a day so at this rate 20 pages will be 5000 words at least!

Nothing really. I was just thinking that you should probably be averaging more words per day if you really want a competent entry. Alas, this is just my opinion.

Nothing wrong with a shorter story. I got mine featured. All depends on the writing quality, which I'm sure Mr. Ace can...

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Well I think I have gotten better. I am working hard on this story and my average words per page is 303 so I think that is good. I have seven pages done so far and am trying to do two pages a day. I missed one day and today I have done one of them. Today is day 5.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

I think I'll give this one a try since I have a few ideas.  It will probably be semi-graphic due to the nature of the story but hopefully not too over the top.  

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Surprisingly more people "joined" so that means more inspirational love songs to motivate you all in your task.

(I think I got a better idea of love now so these are more appropriate this time)

Well it was suggested that you get something from Eminem, but that would be too obvious, so went in a slightly different direction. The most important thing is, it’s a love song and therefore inspirational for this contest.

And then, like a flash of lightning, inspiration hit.

EZ would write the tale of two star-crossed lovers.

Him: an ultra-hyper conservative alt-right neo-fascist white-supremacist.

Her: a post-modern neo-marxist alt-left nihilist.

Is it too late to jump in on this? And if you fail to produce is the same penalty going to apply as the last contest?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

You can still join. There's no entry fee to lose but SHAME is now a threat.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

What exactly is that? Just general scorn?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

I have an idea, although it's a little bit rapey. Fuck it, put me in. As long as I produce something I escape penalty, right?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago

Yeah, as long as its going to be above a rated 3 standard story, but I imagine you won't have any problem with that considering your other contest story was rated pretty highly.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago

Also going to add, if you're going to make a rapey story (or any story really), I'm going to be very displeased if I get to the end of it and it all turned out to be a dream or the memory of some ancestor like some sort of faggot Assassin's Creed shit.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago
Lol. Okay I'll give you that, but I wanted some way to bring the story back away from the fanciful setting. Also I love those programs where they seek out ancient human genetic pathways and narrow it down to geographical locations. But yeah I got some criticism for that decision. Oh well, live and learn.

Even if he doesn't win he contest (Which he probably won't because he probably turned in shit) he's earned this I guess.

Should've made it Green Day. He's a big fan.

Anyway, damn, I was hoping for a Valentine release but it was not to be. I guess we'll all have to look to Malk's story of graphically murdering monsters in Hell or whatever it's supposed to be about as the most romantic thing released on the site tomorrow, unless someone else has been holding theirs back for the 14th.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Hurray, now I only have to beat Ebon and Mizal. Ebon is suffering from Ebola or something and Mizal will probably procrastinate. Digit simply won't win, for even Malk will crush him.
Everybody else will probably/hopefully be lazy. :)

I know posting love songs has been more Endmaster's area, but I've been hearing this one every morning on the way to work and I'm impressed by how plot heavy it is with a lot of focus on the main character's struggles to find true love. Hopefully some of you will take inspiration from it too:

So since we’re posting a lot of 80s love songs, going to just post the video to this one because… well its basically a Star Wars setting rip off with murder, kidnapping and rape (Okay they don’t show that part, but that’s what we all know is going to happen)

Hope you don't mind I'm doing this, EM.
How's everybody's word count looking right now? For example, I'm at a measly 12k. Specifically, is Ebon past me, has Mizal even started writing yet, and has Digit even written anything past a few thousand words?

We have under a dozen days left! :)

Hey- I did find out about the contest extremely late. I'll try to do better next time.

21 days is plenty of time to put out an acceptable contest entry.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

I cannot work on my entry every single day as I'm still a student. 

EDIT: Not to mention that the story-line which I settled on requires some time to implement.

Who isn't a student or otherwise occupied everyday of the week?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Don't be like me and miss a good writing section.  You may find that on what seem to be the worst days to write, somehow you end up writing 2,000-3,000 words or more.

“Mizal practically gave me the torch and told me to make sure I win. Her points are essentially mine. Digit’s fallen behind, Malk did the bare minimum for it. All that’s left is Wibbons.” - Ebon

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

You may be surprised, Eb.  ;)

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago

I'm simply demonstrating my thought process. 

AlienKudzu: A no name lurker, or new person in general. Chances are no submission from him. 

corgi213: I feel like they've written something somewhere before, but I can't remember it all. Not worried.

Crescent: Potential here. I wouldn't be surprised at all if she was able to turn something in of high quality. The judge is the worry here.

Digit: Has abandoned his harem idea, and is now going for a bare minimum submission. Doubted his romantic writing prowess anyhow.

EZunmaker: A semi interesting presence, but I expect nothing I can't handle. 

Fluxion: Nice background, and there is competition here. So long as this isn't all a dream

Malk: Story already submitted. Despite his story description, he will no doubt score higher than a lot of the other people here.

Mizal: Read my comment above. 

MrAce: Read further up in the thread. No further comment.

Orange: Definitely a possibility for a story here, and a good one too, but I wonder at Orange's level of motivation.

Reverencia: Don't know em. I feel like they might be more respected, but I feel this will likely turn into a bare minimum entry as well.

Slasher: I feel like no explanation here is necessary.

Wibbons: Has put forth the most perceivable effort so far. This is a good sign, and perhaps even better is that End said he liked her first page the best. That being said, I'm not particularly worried. 

My opinions of you lot aren't bad, mind you, I simply find the lack of real competition here disturbing. Maybe that thought will motivate you all to beat me. That won't happen, of course, but I would still like to see you all try.

Now go write, or lose.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago

Eh, I said I liked the ideas she was presenting in her thread, I haven’t actually read the first page though. I probably won’t do much more than glance/scan through anyone's writing until it’s actually published in story form and linked in this thread.

I believe the words of Neil Armstrong may serve you well, Ebon.

In the words of Roger Federer...

”I have a great record against anybody right now, so it doesn't really matter who I play in the final. I'll be in there as the big favorite. But I play my best in the finals, in the important matches. That's why I'm number one. There's no secret...I'm not overconfident, but very confident.”

This is sort of unusual that the two most promising contestants are normal Christian folks rather than the usual gang of misanthropic degenerate sodomites.

Guess the "purity" of romance sparked the motivation.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago

I'll take this as a good thing. 

Probably less about purity and more about impurity based on some of the entires.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago

We may even be from the same state (Missouri) if I'm not confusing Ebon with someone else.

I mostly entered because of how little I wrote in this genre, and I thought it would be fun... I also considered how "impure" the others will most likely be, so I have a few "pure" paths. :)

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Not from, but my current resident atm. Certainly familiar.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

8 months ago
Damn, I really need to actually write something now so we can all take a stand for Christianity and normalcy together. (Not giving up being misanthropic though, fuck that.)

Now that Digit has as good as given up we don't really have a proper degenerate to unite against unfortunately.

I'm still ahead of you, Corgi, yet you did not address me. I am deeply offended and expect a three page written essay which must incorporate at least six Bible passages from the KJV. Only APA format is accepted. :)

Ah, I was replying to Ebons rant about how much everybody else supposedly sucks :)

And yes I shall get that essay done, just give several centuries.  As I've almost reached my 20,000 word quota for the year of 2018.

And yes, a sprinkle of good luck to you too :)

But I believe I am to be the winner, and everybody shall bow down to my intrinsic talent to make words flow, and characters leap off the page.

With any luck you all will be inspired to write something after this. (If you've already seen it, then go back and watch it again. It's a solid reminder of the intricacies of relationships between characters.)

Thought you didn’t believe in extensions? What did Ebon or Mizal pay you?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

7 months ago

As Mizal is repeatedly stating in the Lair, might just be End fucking with us. In which case, I will have to haul ass to get my submission finished by the fourth. Oh well, I wasn't planning on sleeping anyhow.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

7 months ago

To my knowledge EZ noticed the new deadline first, but I assume he wasn't going to tell anyone else about it and use it as an advantage. While you all rushed to finish the stories and turn them in early thus severing your ability to fix them, he would have taken his time.

Ebon’s decision to point it out to everyone I guess has leveled the playing field again I suppose. I guess he’s really confident he’s going to win.

Since this is the last stretch, I guess might as well let everyone know there are 2 more people in this contest, sneaking about. One of which just revealed themselves to me today. The other I've actually known for quite some time. I'll let you all worry about who they might be or confidently dismiss them as cowards who hide in the shadows. (But a sneak attack can kill you all the same!)

Anyway, updating the list.

The thought didn’t even occur to me, I guess winning this way will still be more satisfying though.

I’m going to guess that Bucky is one of the Mystery contestants, and if Briar is done with the other contest on COG, then her.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

7 months ago
I didn’t have time to enter my own contest, what makes you think I have time to enter into this gum guzzling fiasco?

It’s obviously Briar and EndMaster. May as well start work on your next project because End was the winner from the start ^_^

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

7 months ago

Well the consensus I got from the lair was that it’s two of the three B’s. 

So Bucky and Briar

Bucky and Berka 

Or

Briar and Berka.

I think any one of these combinations are plausible. Although Killa is always silent and that’s kinda suspicious...

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

7 months ago
Killa doing exactly what Killa does is suspicious?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

7 months ago
Good luck with that. Everyone else can just throw up their hands and give up now whether it's Bucky, Briar, Berka, or End, you have all lost.

Of course, then again it could be someone named Bubba, and End would pick them to win just to annoy everyone else...

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

7 months ago

Ha! You think I'll back down because a known member of the site decides to stretch their dainty fingers. (If they aren't a very well known member of the site, then disregard this) No, this only gives me an opportunity to cross names off of my hit list.

Assuming one of these people are the mystery participants...

Bucky is always running contests, so this will give me a real opportunity to take him out and show him the power of arrogant youth.

Berka typically doesn't enter contests, so if it is him, then I'll have a ball creating a piece to beat one of his one. 

Since I've been here, Briar hasn't really been a major presence. Except on the front page, and is the only non-mod on there. A worthy person to take second place behind me. 

Killa...on the off chance he is competing, I'll beat him too.

If I didn't name you that means I don't think you are competing, or that I am not concerned about your entry in this contest.

If I'm wrong about both, one, or neither, there is one thing I am certain about. And that's that I'll win regardless of who enters. So respected, revered, or unknown come face defeat.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Wait I got this. It's going to be Thara and...and...Kiel!

There's actually only a very short list of people who would bother doing the mystery contestant thing. Bucky wouldn't have any reason not to enter in the regular manner since it's not his contest this time. Any of the admins or Briar seem like a stretch, they've all got other things going on and don't tend to enter contests anyhow.

Going to laugh if it's a couple of nobodies just being mysterious for no particular reason.

If neither wins the contest they both lose 500 points.

If I like Chris’ story better than Digit’s he gets 100 of Digit’s points and vice versa.

I'll need an even longer extension! I need more time, more time, End!

Well, I'm not looking to win it or anything. I'm sure it'll show that this is my first try at writing a storygame seriously like this, and some rookie mistakes will most likely be prominent.

Yet you didn’t think it prudent to put spaces between paragraphs? This makes every page a wall of text, and kinda makes me want to shoot myself.

Yep. MrAce has already screwed up to the point of failure. Formatting is one of those major sins of making a story game, and itit looks like he’s going to hell for it.

So should I unpublish and fix that before to many people read it?

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

That isn’t allowed. Unfortunately, you have to leave it up and listen as every complains about it until the entire contest is over.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Maybe you can take him under your wings, Ebon? Well, after the contest is over. 

I'm sure you can teach him a thing or two about indenting. 

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Yeah I could do that, or I could not and save myself hours of agonizing trouble. Besides, taking an apprentice now is not the best option, when I’m not a master myself.

Nope, against contest rules, grounds for disqualification to pull your story down before the deadline hits.

Plus End already read yours.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

About the only thing he can try to do at this point is make a better story before the deadline or HOPE his story manages to get enough pity 3s to keep him above the unpublish mark.

'You lived with my grandma so at first, she tried to help you, but you did not want her help. you hated her, you yelled at her, but she tried to help.'

First page. You had a month, should've edited harder.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Just a reminder because apparently some were confused about this and are now going into "overdrive" due to their poor time management skills.

The deadline is the 11th, which means as soon as it turns midnight on the 10th (and becomes the 11th), the contest is over. (Eastern standard time)

So what that means is besides the couple hours left today, you have the 8th, 9th and 10th to complete and turn in your story.

While I really do want to enter, I think that rushing to finish the storygame for this weekend is just going to result in me turning out a subpar piece of work. I'd rather wait and work on getting out something I'm happy with. But maybe I can enter the next contest? Or at least the next one I don't have to spend my currently meager amount of points on.

Extend the contest another week so that you can RAGE at cat about how his shitty performance is reflecting poorly on Infinite Story when he doesn't produce something when he fails to produce after receiving an extension in his honor.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

If I made another extension, Mizal would be the main one raging at this point as she's convinced I've been torturing her this whole time.

In any case, no more extensions, I want this to be over with as much as everyone else.

As for Cat, well it's up to her if she wants to join or not.

In addition to stressing over actually finishing, I don't think you quite understand the number of increasingly bullshit excuses I've had to make to keep my brother and his family from stealing primo writing hours away from me this past week.

I've now made a devil's bargain that will involve cooking and voluntarily socializing with multiple people on Sunday so I hope that drives home just how desperate the situation is.

This is really petty, I know, but...I'm female.

I thought about if an extension would work, but a deadline isn't going to work; and I know the storygame really needs to be finished before publishing. Unfortunately, I'm nowhere near that point.

But I'll make sure to post as soon as I have it done.

Out of the remaining 14 people that haven’t linked their stories yet, I’m only expecting about half of them to do so.

Just a bunch of lazy faggots all around really.

Here’s one more inspirational love song, maybe it motivate people out their sloth.

Looking forward to taking points from Digit because he's dropping his harem idea to do a minimum effort entry. It's gonna be like taking candy from a baby. And that's assuming he even manages to finish before the deadline in... 'Bout twenty-three hours or so.

@Digit suck it faggot.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

Your storygame was pretty freaking awesome from what I've read of it so far. It would definitely be an uphill battle for him if he's truly ditching his anime harem idea, because that would have been interesting to see. lel.

Well, things are looking a bit grim for my entry. Feels like I'd need another week to finish it properly as originally envisioned, and the plot unfortunately is one that can't handle too much stripping down or tacked on endings.

I'm not withdrawing just yet but I just don't see myself finishing it on time at this point.

Bah. Guess my original instinct to not enter any more contests was the correct one...but now, it looks like I'll almost have to do another one at some point to get unSHAMED.

Oh well, maybe one day I'll unlock the secrets of getting writing done on week days.

You don't get werewolves and vampires. I actually decided I liked that story and will have to take my time over the next few weeks getting it into proper shape. Instead you get Billy, which was written in about three days prior to the extension.

Interesting in that he basically danced on the fence of what's allowable on here with all the weird underage character stuff going on. (No, there wasn't any actual sex, just a lot of intense hand holding. Lol.) So mental illness I guess.

Alright. Today is the day. Either I choke and fail miserably, or I succeed and do well. I'm going for the latter, and as of a short time ago, I hit the big five-oh. Yes, I've gone and hit 50k words for this story, and I'm not even done yet. 

I'm going to spend the rest of today writing and writing until my fingers fall off. Good luck to the other contestants who are also trying to get something in last minute.

UPDATE ONE:  Lucky for you guys, I have nothing better to do in between writing breaks, so I'm just going to constantly update my progress. One epilogue completed. Three more to go. I'm at a measly 51k right now. 

UPDATE TWO: Another epilogue finished. Only one more to go, and then I can tie up loose ends. Around 53k words.

UPDATE THREE: I've reached 55k words. The last epilogue is in reach. 

FINAL UPDATE BEFORE SUBMISSION: I've managed to complete the last epilogue. all that is left is to tie up loose ends. 58k words.

Gotta say the best part of this contest so far has been watching May do the edits on Ebon's story. I've lost count of the number of times she's called him a brainless retard or a shitty human being over a random typo or weird word choice or whatever, lol.

EndMaster’s Romance Story Contest

7 months ago
Well, from what I see when I'm on, it might be up to 20 times per day. 20 × 14 (a low estimate) = 240. So, I wouldn't be surprised if May yelled at Ebon over 240 times. :)

Hey, I wasn't that mean! Sure, I did call his story awful a few times, but it was always as a joke. And usually when I was complaining about mistakes in the chat it wasn't me hating him, just being like "Lol you wrote something stupid. Get more sleep.". I wasn't serious when insulting him, so I'm tecnicly still nice, right? :) Ebon's story is actually very good (at least now when I fixed it).

When you publish your story at the last minute, for fuck's sake make sure you have removed your co-author sidekick beta meat shields.

Here you go. I was bored out of my mind writing romance, even with this relatively deviant take on it.

Wheeler & Brandt LLP

This is pretty short. Only some 17,000 words, and it's pretty linear. I couldn't think of any real excitement or intricate plot ideas with this topic, so I just made it offensive to hard core feminists instead.

You work in a law firm. You like your boss, but he's screwed up in the head. So you try to wiggle your way into his messed up BDSM mind. I've never read any of the books or seen any of the 50 Shades of Grey films, but I'm assuming this storygame is somewhat similar, although there isn't very much graphic sex (just sexual situations). Enjoy being a sub!

Well that kind of takes the winds out of my towel-sized sails. On the other hand, Maggie Gyllenhaal looks pretty hot in that. Also the guy from the Blacklist is in it playing the role of my "Mr. Wheeler." Anyway, I'm pretty sure there isn't a rape and a court case in that movie (based on the wiki plot summary), so at least I have one original idea.

Digit's already failed spectacularly and is just trying to avoid SHAME at this point.
