Okay, so here’s another unofficial contest for everyone if they’re interested.
Keep in mind you still need to write a story with an actual plot and shit. I don’t care what type of story you do, just make the protagonist one of the LGBT crowd.
So write anything from a tranny space James Bond to a lesbian Leatherface if you want, but don’t just write a character that goes around saying “I’M GAY!” throughout the story. Also do not use this as an excuse to write your shitty Yaoi/Yuri fan fiction. Write a real fucking story.
I suppose you COULD do an asexual protagonist, but that’s sort of the easy way out.
You’re banned if you make a pedophile protagonist.
Remember to post links to your stories here if you make one and there will also be a new tag you can use to place on your stories.
Anyway, deadline is December 1st, good luck.
This seems like undue effort to start an entirely new story where there's not even any real restrictions. I mean, I could literally rewrite almost any of my stories to make them LGBT in ten minutes.
wait end does that story I showed you a month ago count if it has atleast 1 lgbt protagonist.
I barely remember that story. (I'd have to check the PMs)
Eh, I was looking more for a traditional single protagonist story, (unless all your protags happen to be lgbt) but I guess you could turn it in for this contest anyway since if you turn out to be the only one who bothers, you'll win by default like Mizal did last contest.
Am I allowed to just delete Metamorphosis and republish it?
I don't even remember the protagonist in Metamorphosis or even the story (EDIT: Apparently I haven't even read it yet since its unrated for me), but fuck no, it's a simple enough task as it is.
If I made it any simpler, I might as well be handing out "Everyone's a winner!" trophies.
Yeah, that's happened to me before with contests which is part of the reason why I stopped doing them a long time ago. Someone comes up with a topic that I already wrote a story about.
I dunno, maybe Malk could try to make a shitty sequel like Metamorphosis 2: Lesbian Boogaloo.
This does seems like an interesting topic to cover for a story although I assume that most people would just write a normal story then slip in "By the way, I'm not straight" like once. If I decide to spend my free time writing, I will attempt to write something for this contest. But I most likely will not submit anything unless I got something really good.
Also I now have a subconscious reason for writing a story.
That's definitely one way to start a story.
...tempting. It would be something to feed CYSBOT, and I have an idea. Hm.
I have the least chance of finishing a story. X'D
I can't help but remember that storygame published last year: Gay and Deppressed.
Anyway, this'll be an interesting contest.
Wow, it's still hanging on at a 2.7, I thought it had been unpublished.
EDIT: There was also this one. (Though it wasn't immediately apparent that it was about two girls until Briar spoke to the author directly and then mentioned it to me)
I kinda got the feeling it was from a girl's point of view as I was reading it.
Holy shit, that was fast for you.
Hell, you might just get those 6 stories in by the end of the year after all.
Watch it, there's standards she said would be for the storygames, she's got 0 stories still.
This one is probably on par with her rape story. Probably better in some regards since there's an actual story here. Not that the rape story wasn't good since it was amusing, but this one went for the whole bat shit insane isolation route along with a fleshed out background (At least I thought so) so it was good in a different way.
I think you might like this one assuming you haven't read it yet.
Does it count as gay if the entire world is?
I mean, technically there's no dick/boobs/squishy bits for anyone, and it's simply he/him pronouns for everyone. Skeletons, glass-like people / solid ghost-like people.
Souls bond, and sometimes upon separation another piece splits off and grows like an egg, collecting and gathering surrounding elements to form a basic body over the course of several weeks.
That sounds more like everyone is just neutered asexuals which I said you could write as a main protagonist since they're starting to get lumped into the alphabet soup. I just said it seems a bit too easy.
A) This sounds interesting, and I hope you decide to do it.
B) Why he/him?
Even if it's not in time for the contest, I'll be doing a lot with this universe. I've been planning things out with it for months, including 31 characters, governing system, animal life, a little bit into mythology, how exactly things work and how anomalies can be explained or created, genetics pertaining to magic and the restrictions on magic, my own system of alchemy including said magic.
Does there have to be "proof" to support the notion that the protagonist is LGBT, or can we just give the story to a Tumblr user, ask for their 'headcanon' and say that's totally what we intended?
Since I'm going to be judging these, I'll decide if you met the criteria or not.
I mean if you really want to do a story where the protagonist is saying "Have I mentioned that I'm homosexual today?" on every page to hedge your bets that you're doing it right, but that probably means it could only go the more comedy route.
By the same token you could have an entire story where it's not even mentioned and only a single brief reference (Like Eric mentioned) like your lesbian protagonist saying "Yeah, I gotta go home early, my wife wants to go on a stupid date night."
Feel free to use a tumblrina's brain for inspiration if you wish though.
If the story has multiple protagonists, do they all have to be LGBT? Or is it fine as long as the "main guy" swings with the 10%?
Like I said to Digit, if you've got multiple main protags, and just one of them is meeting the criteria, you could still turn it in, but I might end up ranking it a bit lower unless you've really written something well.
Ill probably cheat myself and make my Ultra Conservative White Male and Independent women secretly queer in some sort of group orgy fest.
Pansexuals are allowed then? X'D
?*totally not looking for the easiest way besides asexuals*
You have your next story :P
And I think if you dig hard enough you might actually find what they call themselves.
I have seen an entire forum dedicated to people with a kink for nonliving objects turned into a humanoid shape (it's every gal's/guy's dream to fuck their fridge, after all!)
But of course, the fridge is the THICCest appliance. I can't imagine fucking anything else in my house, except maybe my car, but it entered a polyamorous relationship with some gay dragons a long time ago.
Vegetables and Planies still have their own genders, as you can tell by the massive nutritious and fibrous/stainless steel dicks and/or tits. There exist plenty of gay people within that area, but, y'know, mostly it's an excuse for obsessive farmers and those old dudes who painted model planes in their basement before the internet started handing out asperger/autism diagnoses like cheese and crackers to pretend that the beings they hang out with all the time are actually sexually attractive people that they'd be proud of hanging out with.
The old dudes that play with civil war figures in their basement instead are probably more "biased" toward being LGBT considering the only potentially sexy people they have to choose from are dudes.
But, fuck, if I were a gay civil war basement dude, I sure as hell wouldn't be complaining.
Yeah, you can do pans I guess. They're basically just bisexuals on steroids.
EDIT: Yes, you can also have a hermaphrodite protagonist as well.
Unfortunately, it appears I made it so that in Mazkil, becoming chieftain leads to you having children, one of whom I named Mazkil Jr. Thus, I needed to quickly unpublish that and change that, because come on, Junior? Nah, fuck that noise.
However, I'm reminded that Mazkil is a bisexual in that story, given that he fucks female prostitutes and marries a man if allowed to retire peacefully, and since I did (re)publish it in the duration of the contest, and wrote at least one name during the duration, I want my prize.
Well, I wrote a storygame for EM's contest mostly just to ensure that mizal won't win by default again (making it more "official"). I was also being annoyed by ItsSuchaBeutifulDay, so I semi-parodied her storygame and style. Thus, I'm killing two birds with one stone.
Plus, will my minimal effort be rated higher than what ISBD thinks is too good to comment on? Will it even remain above site standards?
She never rated Waiting for a Train, so I assume she never read it. If that's the case, they I understand. She'll see it eventually. If she did read it, however, then I'd be rather confused.
Dang, that's so weird. Perhaps it's that I used the word "Trump" that's throwing them off? Those parody's are (annoyingly) common, so maybe she mistook it for that entirely?
EDIT: BTW, there's also a hidden ending. Did you find it? Steve could probably stumble onto it...
In my universe, there were no tiny trains who you could pick from instead. Then again, a train who runs on cannabis, a coal powered train who hates pollution, and a train that has an Egg McMuffin painted on its side would all be interesting to me.
Also, I find this weird. The three members of the site who are "conservative" are either the ones who created the diversity contest or was the ones who submitted in it so far. Morgan should write something soon.
Glad to see Wibbons getting into the spirit of things. Perhaps an inspiring video will help others come up with a story idea.
If you think this site wasn't filled with degeneracy before, you really haven't been paying attention.
Anyway, hurry up and finish your story, there's still time and it seems pretty interesting so far. Might even give Mizal some actual competition for the contest.
Many can write 1k words an hour. I've written an ~4/8 storygame in just two. I'm pretty sure you could if you wanted to (unless you write in Morse code and send that to a child who only speaks Cantonese).
Only a few more days left in this contest and what the hell is this guy doing?
This guy should feel pretty inclusive too haha!
Okay, calling this a day early since I feel like it.
Unsurprisingly Mizal won and she finally gets her name crossed out from the Big Book of Grudges along with 100 points and her story featured.
Also she told me privately “Oh please End Sama, I want your great big magnificent trophy in my profile!”
So I assure everyone that I didn’t abuse my position of power, this is all totally consensual and my trophy wasn’t just thrust into her profile unwillingly.
Would have given it a little sooner, but I figured I’d wait until after the contest was over to award all the warm and fuzzies. (Points, featuring, etc)
Wibbons doesn’t get anything except the smug satisfaction that his parody train story is currently doing a lot better than the original story he was parodying. So much so that his story is still up while the other has been taken down due to low ratings.
Anyway congrats, you've both proven to be a true supporter to sexual degeneracy the LGBT cause.
I am flabbergasted that my storygame didn't win. I am so insulted. You are not inclusive enough because I deserve a participation trophy (with a skull). Despite the fact that I lost to 100% of the participants, I did beat the other 45,577 members of this site which puts me in the top 99.996% of the contest. Y u so meen?
In all seriousness, I'm surprised that the storygame I toiled over for 150 minutes even is sitting above a 3/8. It's purpose was (mostly) to ensure Mizal won an actual contest instead of her winning because everybody here is so lazy. I'm also leaving it up because of some PM's I've got (especially one telling me I was cruel).
Onto important matters, woo hoo! Mizal not only attain EM's trophy, but she also earned her first (of hopefully many) featured storygames. Hopefully, many newbs will one day click on some featured L&D storygame only to read about necrophilia instead. :)
I am oddly proud of my three references to users, reference to CoG, reference to a rather odd CYS thread several months back, and reference to Malk's storygame. Perhaps I should reevaluate I am proud over. (For example, one should be very proud to earn user's trophies.)
Sorry I missed the deadline. I hit an upswing, energy-wise, and I wasn't gonna waste that on a shitty Dating While Trans empathy game. Even one with cute monstergirls. As for my hopefully less-shitty ideas... well, you may see them in some form, eventually. Don't hold your breath, obviously. ;P
So, yes: congrats Mizal! Sorry to have failed to legitimize your inevitable victory. XD
If only my stories wrote themselves I would be less disappointing(?)
:( Someday, don't give up hope yet. But in the meantime, I guess I will have to write manually to avoid disappointing everything and everyone around me.
