                 MANIFEST DESTINY CONTEST

             

Deadline: 11:59 PM (EST) September 6, 2021 (Labor Day)

Reward: You’ll get potential pointless points, potential commendations, potentially featured and potentially out of the SHAME pit if you’re currently in there like the big loser you are.

Also keep in mind I WILL be using EST because fuck the farmers. So when MY clock hits 11:59 PM, that’s what the fucking deadline is. If you’re unsure, well don’t wait until the last fucking minute to turn your story in.

Manifest Destiny is not actually the theme for this contest, (Though it can be) but more of the general idea of expanding the types of stories available on the site to expand our well rounded glory. I want you to produce a story from one of the categories that's under 100 stories.

Since none of you slugs actually pay attention to details, here is a list of categories that are currently under 100 stories.

Historical
Grimdark Fantasy
Family Friendly
Mystery/Thriller
Love&Dating
Puzzle/Games
Sci-Fi
Edutainment

I want to only see stories within these categories being submitted for the contest. You submit a story not in one of these categories for the contest, you get thrown in the SHAME pit.

(And yes Fanfic is under 100 too, but I don’t want to read fucking Fanfic for this contest. It's the SHAME pit, if I see it)

A few more things.

If you're joining, post that you are in here. Once you join though, you're committed, so make sure you're going to actually submit a story.

You can do whatever the hell you want within the category you’ve chosen. You want to make a wholesome family story about children finding an alien dog, you can. You want to make a wholesome historical story about being a concentration camp guard, you can do that too.

You can even go for extra credit and attempt to tie in the concept of Manifest Destiny/Imperialist Expansion in the story (A wholesome Edutainment story about the Trail of Tears perhaps)

Also I’ll be judging all these stories, except if you make a puzzle/gamey type story OR a co-authored story. In that case Mizal will read and judge mainly because she’s got more patience for that sort of stuff.

Another thing I don't want to see, is fucking "loops back to the beginning" rather than proper endings. I see this in a submitted story and it's the SHAME pit immediately.

That’s about it for now, unless I think of something else to add or take away as needed.

Remember to post a link to your story here when you’re done.

Good luck.

I never wanted to enter another contest as long as I live, but I have to make sure I finish this story somehow. 

Huzzah! The great crusade to finish a story beings. 

I declare victory in this contest as my divine right.

What a terrible shame that Orange and bilbo will not be able to just finish their already started cyberpunk stories for this, an ability that all other failed entrants have.

Really should be something for everyone in those categories though, I expect a much better turn out this time.

I'm already regretting this decision.


21/7 - 27/7 Came up with story idea. Started to read certain scifi to shamelessly rip off or get inspired by. Did nothing else.
28/7 - 04/8 Did nothing.
05/8 - 11/8 Will probably do nothing.

I will do my own separate game, but I am also offering to co-author another game with anyone in the shame pit. I have never been in the shame pit and always end up with the contest entries I signed up for. So, if you are interested in co-author a game and get out the pit, say it.

@Zake loves the idea of co authoring and has volunteered.

Welcome to the contest Zake, consider yourself locked in with Mara.

Whelp. Hopping to win now so that I know my 'first story' will be good.

edit - tho using the word my is misleading, but it won't be Mara's first story.

Oh good, the three of you decided to make this contest more complicated than necessary.

Mizal can read and judge this story.

End Master's Manifest Destiny Contest

For future reference, just so we're clear, Zake was not 'voluntold', he went into this quite eagerly. https://imgur.com/a/nIloIyB Let's hope they can keep this optimism up through September. I for one always enjoy a good social experiment, I mean what better way to learn.

End Master's Manifest Destiny Contest

Some of my rich insights into co-authoring might be missing, but I can't be bothered to check the validity (which I have no reason to doubt, it'd be a lot of effort to be misleading and all).

I didn't resist, so it wasn't being voluntold, but it I will say it felt like it. (I like the approach where you finish the story before declaring intent to enter).

8/4: Spent most of my time outlining the ending in detail. Forgot to do that in the beginning. Managed to type some down. It's kind of scary that it almost breached 93 pages. To think that I have to proofread it all... I should set some time aside for that.

Oh for extra funzies since I know some people do this anyway with contests, be sure to put at the top of your story description 

"For End Master's Manifest Destiny Contest"

That way whenever Zape or whoever else is putting these into the IFaggotryDB, the description of the story has my name plastered as the first thing seen.

I think it'd be good also to tell people to leave copies of any reviews on the CYS site, since on the IFDB they might be deleted without the author ever seeing them.

All right, I changed my mind about the prizes.

If there are at least six qualifying entries: $25 Comixology card

If we make it to twelve entries: $50 from Steam or Amazon or Walmart or somewhere, or maybe just Cash App. Highly dependant on whether you're in the US or not however.

So, Americans: don't let any foreigners win. Besides just being an embarrassment, it only complicates things on my end.

If we don't even get to six entries, then fuck you all, I'll go buy a CoG game to wipe my ass with.

Allthough I really will be surprised (disgusted) if no one who failed the Cyberpunk contest takes advantage of this opportunity to easily get unSHAMED. You all have quite the head start with sci fi stories already partially written, there's really no excuse for not taking advantage of the month and a half extension on it.

Unless you're Orange or bilbo, who won't be allowed to.

For some reason I smell the american bias in this post though this time I will let it slide. It would indeed be an embarassement if an American would lose a manifest destiny themed contest cough...cough.

I could give Mara an Amazon card, and she'd still have to spend 30 euros on a case of Dr. Pepper, and then pay around that much again to the Spanish mafia to be allowed to pick up an imported product from the post office.

I'm actually quite sad for the rest of the world, but it's certainly not our fault that other countries suck.

I understand she puts a lot of personal blame on the Dutch for these ordering problems too...

End Master's Manifest Destiny Contest

It wouldn't be the first time the responsible parent becomes the hated one.

End Master's Manifest Destiny Contest

7 days ago
But really, just the fact Darius even knows what Manifest Destiny is only proves America's importance and greatness.

Meanwhile I don't know shit about the Dutch except that you like sticking things in dykes, consider a glass of boiled water to be too spicy and flavorful, and are renowned the world over for being so stupid they thought a pot with a lid on it was an oven.

I can't even find your country on a map, that's how insignificant it is. (It's called Dut or something right? Doucheland? Dutchistan?)

Anyway, apologies for the derail. All of you get back to writing, and remember that if this contest is as much of a flop as the previous (Dutch hosted) one, I'm gonna manifest my boot in your ass.

(And yes yes I know that with Gryphon and Darius' insane productivity, and Malk being in this one too it's already going to be a worthwhile one, but it's proven statistics that you guys are all more productive when we are meaner.)

Oh here's some more: Windmills, wooden shoes, drug addled whores, Muslim invaders, that incel artist that cut off his ear, eating their own prime minister and the country's whole existence solely relying on the courtesy of people not farting in the water.

End Master's Manifest Destiny Contest

7 days ago
Okay, eating the prime minister was pretty metal, but that doesn't count because for some reason they didn't teach about that in school. And THAT would've made me remember they existed for sure.

It is very American to spit out ignorance like it's a virtue. Don't feel special about being included in our education system.

End Master's Manifest Destiny Contest

Next time call us "Fat Americunts" for the more condescending Euro tone.

End Master's Manifest Destiny Contest

7 days ago
Sometimes ignorance is sad and disgusting, like the way all of Europe willfully refuses to grasp the concept of lemonade.

But then there are things it does you no good at all to know about, like the details of what Endmaster was doing in your mom's room last night.

Whatever the case, can't argue with our methods when they're working!

You can do it! You've still got a month. There's no minimum size on these, just plan for like 10k words and expand it from there if you have time.
