Don't worry about the length, guys.

Ooh, I'm definitely entering. Expect a PM from me sometime within the next day or two. This will be much more fun than finishing stupid summer homework :D

I'm entering this. It'll be easy, I'll base it off my ROM-hack's story.

I'm definitely entering this! Just a quick question: around how many chapters should we include in our story? Around.

Let me say this: If by some odd chance of fate inspiration hits me, I'll enter. Curse this extended writer's block, though.

Gummy, quick question on the judge thing: When you mean best work, you mean your best fanfic work or your best review? Sorry. ;

Yeah, thinking of becoming a judge as seeing I haven't been in a writing mood for some time and now I'm on a review and graphics sugar high. :O Also, almost done with the Heart and Soul one shot contest (only got two reviews left), so this shouldn't be too long.

Chapters? Short stories, with the exception of the novella (which can count as a short story split into parts, except they are called "chapters" for the "novel" part of... Forget it), don't tend to have "chapters". They have parts, if the need arises (scene change, time change, point of view change).

Really, people, stop focusing on "How long is too long?" Your story should be as long as it should be. If that means that it's only one/two pages long, then fine. If it's longer, then that's also fine.

Just no fifty-page fics. Bay would probably die if she had to read another one of those again for a contest. X3

You're right on that, Astinus. XD;

Anyways, send the PM to Gummy, so we'll see how that goes.

*goes back to Ultimate Trivia thread*

I'm making it more interesting for me, by giving myself more prompts as I had previously mentioned in the ffl thread XD

Though time will still be centric.

I may not care much for the rest of this get-together stuff due to my general shyness and all, but I'm always up for writing things outside my normal fics. I've got my entry started, I just hope I can finish it with the other stuff I have to do this weekend. Namely, my first C++ programming assignment for one of my classes (which I was almost thinking I wouldn't be able to do for a while due to some problems connecting to the school's Solaris servers on which they want us to work), along with work tomorrow and my parents coming to visit Sunday.

Now you said it's fine if we're explicit, right? :D Telling me to mind what I write and make sure it's fit for a forum kids go to...doesn't really mean much to me. <_< I don't think it will be too bad, though. Less gore than other stuff I've written, certainly. My plan is to try to make the violence more aural than I usually manage with my writing, focusing less on the pure visuals.

And, Astinus, if I do manage to finish this in time you'll finally be forced to read one of my stories again. Perhaps it'll make you want to read TFCv2 even more, yes? :D

On an unrelated ranty note, why the hell do I always end up with neighbors who like running around drunk in the damn hallway?! And why is it so bad tonight, I thought most people were supposed to leave for the weekend! I'm just glad that since I have a single room I don't have to deal with a roommate and friends running around drunk in the room. Or making out for five hours straight while I'm trying to sleep. Like happened when I did have a roommate back my first year...

This sounds like fun, I'd better get on the ball. I've never been involved in an actual fanfic contest before; I hope the bloodshed is kept to a minimum.

I suppose I'll give it a try. Doubt it'll be very good, but hey. You won't know until you try, right? This is assuming I can get a good idea before the contest closes.

I'm almost ready with mine, so unless something like a party pops up I may be sending, PM'ing it later today or early tomorrow.

I managed to overcome Writer's Block by forcing myself to write, telling myself that the party is to be cancelled because of the heavy rain. Yeah right...

Do we still only give them to Gummy, and he forwards them around to you and Asti?
