Last contest of the year and last chance to get out of the SHAME pit before it ends. As usual it’s free so there’s no reason not to do it. And don’t give me that shit about spending time with friends and family for the holidays either. None of you have any friends and your families hate you.
The genre as mentioned in the title is fanfic. As everyone knows, I’m not really into fanfic, but hopefully at least one of you produces something that isn’t entirely retarded.
Also we could use better quality stories in the fanfic section, though “better quality” in the fanfic section is basically like being the 30 year old guy who “only” had sex with his wayward 15 year old girlfriend while everyone else on the cell block was raping babies. You’re still a sex offender.
Anyway, you can pick anything you want to make fanfic about. Keep in mind if you make anime fanfic, I’m probably not even going know what the fuck the original was about, so I’m going to go in like I’m reading a regular weeb story which probably isn’t a good thing.
Hedging your bets by picking something that I might be interested in is a good idea, but not necessarily an automatic win, mainly because most of you don’t do a good job at it when you attempt it. If anything I might get more annoyed if you fuck it up. So do whatever you want, you’re all doomed anyway.
As usual, don’t take this opportunity to write your degenerate slash porn fiction.
Now I know some of you won’t be able to resist writing something like She-Hulk and Wonder Woman scissoring each other in some sapphic embrace, which is fine, just don’t go overboard with it. At least make their scissoring part of the plot some how. (I believe in you)
All participants currently in the SHAME pit that turn in something decent will be let out. Winner will get some more pointless points and I’ll probably replace some of the old top fanfic with the best ones of this contest assuming there are any worthy enough.
Remember to post links to your stories here if you make one for the contest.
Deadline is December 25th, good luck.
So... Potentially... Can you write a fanfic of a fanfic?
Isn't that how 50 Shades of Gray happened?
Nah, nah, 50 Shades of Gray was a fanfic of Twilight... But, I guess if someone wrote a fanfic of 50 Shades of Gray, then that would be a fanfic of a fanfic. ^_^
In it to get the fuck outta the SHAME pit.
I promise, it won't be another story about the Question.
I look forward to your Rorschach fanfic story.
Fuckdammit how'd you know that's what I was gonna go with?
I am very tempted to enter the contest, just to completely and utterly take the piss by paying homage to such literary fan-fiction masterpieces as "My Immortal" "Legolas by Laura" and "Ta Gost of U"... But that would require me to put actual important writing on hold.
Don't worry Leora. Ultimately, there's only one emo band that matters... Volxlemort and da Death Dealers! ^_^
Could I still join to write a fan fic. I realize its Dec 1 and I am a sucky ass writer but I would like to contribute.
^ Yeah same, I just saw this, why wasn't it on the front page?
I'm going to assume there's no "say you are going to join" deadline, I'm participating in this
Actually on second thought I’m going to be an editor. So if you guys have need of one I’ll look over it and give you a second, third, and possibly a fourth opinion on your stories. No charge, the only thing I could use is a little more recognition as an ok editor/ asshole
You should just write a story. Worst case, the story might flop, but you'll be at least a little bit better with writing than you were before.
Of course, you can also just read stories and see who would like a proofreader, as you are, nothing wrong with that.
What's the judge line up?
I see. That's very interesting.
Can you put me in for 30 points
I'm in for 10 points.
I'm wondering why some of you bet anything since I never actually said you were winning anything extra for doing so.
I just bet because everyone else was doing it.
I made a bet to try and hold myself accountable, so I would actually finish this contest, but it seems to be wasted points at this point
No surprise here, but I am considering dropping out and just focusing on reviews until I can improve my writing style enough for the site. I have everything thought out, but I can't write it down right. I will continue trying the next 4 days but if nothing works out then I will drop out
It has been 5 days and I can't get anywhere, guess its time to drop out
Sounds about right. Wasn't expecting anything from you anyway.
You can’t get anywhere like you have a creative block?
What time zone is the deadline in?
(Because I need to know to go for that 11:59 submission)
Eastern Standard Time of course.
Well, I'm not going to make the deadline. I'm not going to rush it and have a repeat of my last contest entry.
The SHAME pit is a dark, horrible place. I suggest rushing something instead of being thrown in there.
If it is that bad I guess I'll work twice as hard.
You could wait until an hour before the deadline to write a thousand-word story about failing at contests.
Just a suggestion.
Well today's the last day. Got until midnight.
List of people who claimed they were going to get off their asses and submit something:
Karstark has unsurprisingly already failed. Samy and Chris will probably do likewise.
Ford for some reason thinks I give a shit if he turns something in at all, but if he does, fine. It'll be a lot more than expected.
I guess Jodie might turn something in.
Going to laugh if Wibbons fails to turn in anything given that he foolishly bet all of his points.
So far only Sabley has managed to make herself worthy and I haven't even bothered to read her story yet.
I will probably just publish what I have right now before I go to sleep tonight. Even if it turns out horribly rushed/shortened as a result.
(And by the way there is no "e". "Jodi")
Well you’ve just successfully assured that I’ll always add the “e” now.
Might think of some more fun things later, who knows. Guess it’ll depend on your story. (or lack thereof) Stay tuned!
^ My entry. Also first published storygame.
With how it's spelled I thought it was going to be some parody of teenagers running through a cornfield. Or maybe it is?
Actually a Children of the Corn-Maze Runner crossover might have made for some interesting fanfic. Oh well maybe next time.
Here's my entry. I rushed it out because I slacked off until the end of the deadline so it's pretty not good.
Gah, despite my efforts, I couldn't create a storygame, much less fanfic, in 2 days! Well, I will keep an eye out for any future contests, and as for this one...
Well, I already started. If you can find me through the mountain of Monster Energies and Little Ceaser's Pizza boxes, I will be working overtime on my story. Wish me luck! I will turn in my story by midnight.
I'm sorry, EndMaster.
I can't make a brand new submission in such a low timeframe. I plan on participating in whatever future contests there may be, but fanfic on the spot just isn't one of my skills.
IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!
Your deadline has been extended to 1:00 AM EST.
Though there may still be repercussions. Stay tuned!
Holy shit, you do not understand how to play to your market.
Alright with Wibbon's last entry, calling this one now. Contest is over, now comes the thankless task of reading these damn things.
Oh and I'll be posting something else contest related soon.
Alright done with these. Sabley won.
I guess I'm supposed to elaborate. Uh, let's see...
Well this one was somewhat based on the sort of fanfic you lot picked. None of you really picked anything that I'm really into. Sabley came the closest with Saw, but even then there are other horror franchises I vastly prefer.
Starting with Jodie's, this one was just sort of dull to me since I wasn't particularly interested in Maze Runner in the first place. I remember seeing the movie on tv, but wasn't really memorable. Hell, I would have preferred Hunger Games fanfic, if one of those teenage dystopias had to be chosen since I actually remembered everything in that one.
Anyway, yeah I didn't care for it, but at least Jodie tried more than the people that failed hard at turning something in at all.
Chris has written multiple Question fanfics now. The dude should just go get a job at DC at this point since I know more about The Question thanks to these stories than anything else. As usual though the story is pretty short since he waited until the last moment again. Plus he's written better Question fanfic already. Still, I liked the fact I could beat up on junkies seeing as I just play the Question like I'm playing as Rorschach anyway.
Anyway, Chris has put out better work and he's done this fanfic already.
So I've never seen the Avatar cartoon and don't really know much about it other than some boy with cancer fights a bunch of pyromaniacs and brings balance to the force or something. Mizal and the rest tell me how great it is, but I just really can't be motivated to watch it for whatever reason.
I've seen the movie which I didn't mind mainly because i wasn't a fanatic of the cartoon, but it wasn't anything I gave a shit about. I've also seen Legend of Korra's 1st season and I didn't mind that one due to the blood bending shit in it. Then I lost interest due to the other seasons not being available on Netflix at the time. Later when I found out they ended the show with a big lesbo lovefest, I saw no reason to ever bother to go back to it.
Finally there's the fact that it's anime. Yeah, yeah it's not "proper" anime, but it's close enough for me to not want to bother with it.
With all that being the case, Wibbons had an uphill battle of me giving a shit about his story.
Still, Wibbons put a bunch of effort into it, and I'm guessing I'd probably appreciate this more if I was all into Avatar like a big nerd like Mizal is. And he might have even won, except he DIDN'T MEET THE FUCKING DEADLINE.
(You didn't really expect to win after getting SHAMED did you?)
So that leaves Sabley who actually captured the whole feel of the Saw movies. I particularly liked scene after scene of torture porn. I figured the protagonist was going to die if I picked all the revenge choices, but that hardly mattered.
Much like the Saw movies, I'm not there for any deeper psychological reasons Jigsaw has or the struggles of the victim's shitty lives, I'm there to see people die horribly. Sabley accomplished that wonderfully.
Anyway as I said Sabley won and successfully redeemed herself.
Congratulations to Sabley for winning, and to all the participants (including myself. And technically EndMaster for judging.) for finding the time/waiting until the last minute (a few steps down) to enter.
Is it too late to ask for a Christmas present? This one being that Wibn gets the punishment they asked for and gets banned for her his failure.
Only because they wanted to be of course.
Actually already briefly banned Wibbons and then unbanned him so it was already done.
Aaaaand edit locking.
Wibbons thinks you're autistic fucktard with no redeeming qualities that beats Leora.
Ebon doesn't think you beat Leora and just rape her in her sleep.
Hey, I look good in everything I wear. Not just a suit.
Normally I'd unpublish my story due to it being a rushed POS, but I think I'm gonna keep it up just to remind myself of my mistakes. Anyway, congrats to Sabley for winning.
