Yeah, forward them to Gummy and then he'll give the reviews to me and Astinus.

... No? xD
PM to me, and I forward the entire story to Asty and Bay. This is so I know for a fact they have the stories.

XD lol *casts confusion*

Anyway, I am just editing mine now, so expect it in the next hour

I'm actually surprised as to how "masterful" [sic] I made it... I hope the subtleties aren't too subtle.

And yes I did include all that I said I would (orange juice, bikinis etc)

EDIT:

By the by, will we get the chance to read other people's fics (at least on monday)?

I'm in the midst of getting my short story written and completed.
I happened to come across a neat idea involving a popular Pokémon character and time when I started.

I hope to get it finished up later tonight or early tomorrow.
So expect a PM within now and then.

I just sent my PM!

It's not a very long story, just a little over two pages. I've never been good at writing large volumes of words, so that's why I love contests like this!

iDawg, what icomeanon6 meant is that it won't be too late if you turn it in tomorrow. Glad you're able to finish it, though.

Because of a change in plans, I won't be able to compete in this competition this time around. I'm having to do a bit of things around the house tomorrow that will need my attention and because of it, I won't be given all the time to really sit and complete my short story. Plus, I have to start judging on the Design-a-Pokémon entries tomorrow, which may take up more of my time as well. I'm really sorry for the departure on this, but hopefully when the next Community Get-Together comes around I'll have more time to take part in it.

Good look to everyone else who is taking part in this awesome event though! =D

I'm sorry to hear that. I always love good competition with others that know what they're doing, and what I was looking forward to the most with this was reading what everyone else wrote at the end...

But at least you're involved with a project in some way on here, so you're apart of something as well. Maybe next contest we can go head-to-head, eh? =D

Hey, Gummy (and everyone).

I submitted my writing piece by PM earlier today. Longer than expected, but tells the exact story I want it to tell.

Also I have been suffering a strange problem with PC so I don't know if the PM arrived properly. If not, well, let me know.

Going away for what remains of the night... *curses at collegue friends and their party*

solvino, Gummy is able to send the PM to me and Astinus, so everything's fine.

Gah, I thought there won't be too many people entering! D: Then again, so is the Heart and Soul contest

Anyways, been reading and reviewing the entries and so far liking the entries we have.

So many people a third place might be a good idea?

Well, I thought there's going to be only five entering by the end of this contest, but we got eight already and a few more will be coming soon. Same thing happened with the Heart and Soul contest at Serebii. I thought there's going to be fifteen entries at least, but nooooooooooo. Instead, there's 29. :O Don't want to go through a fifty page story again, lol.

Anyways, for now I don't think a third place is necessary. However, if this event does have a big turnout later on, maybe.

Don't want to stress you out with even more entries but I'm still working on mine and think that I should be able to finish it on time. :D I got a lot done today, finishing off the entire first half (maybe more, maybe less. No idea how long this second part needs to be) which includes some violence! And blood! And death!

...It's not exactly kid friendly but the rules say that if I would normally post it here it's fine, right? I would normally post this here, just with an R rating. So, it's all good, yes?

I'm normally against going crazy with placings (not everyone needs to win), but if there ends up being a large turn-out it should be considered. Since the contest is for fun I think it'd be in the spirit of things. Otherwise if cash was being handed out... No.

Yeah, I would say that for these stories, you should follow the guidelines posted in the PFF&P rules, which can be found here. I've linked to the explanations about the ratings, and you can go as high as R, as long as you warn.

I'm looking forward to your story, Shrike. Whee, violence!

Of course, I totally thought that the reviews for everyone's story would be posted, so everyone would know where they stood against the others, could see how their story was reviewed (and might help them improve), and to know the scores. Yes, only two people are actually going to be considered "first" and "second", but... I'm really just confused about this. Wait to see what Gummy says, since it's really his contest.
