  •                 This article appeared today on the PlanetVampire home page, and is reprinted here to facilitate discussion between members
     
     It's been a couple weeks since we've had an update about the upcoming 8th birthday festivities.  As mentioned before, there will be a Bloodlines fan fiction contest.  Here are the guidelines:
     
     - All entries must be emailed to me rather than posted directly.  This is so I can post them all anonymously, so everybody can vote on them without any kind of bias or preconceptions about the writers.
     - The stories can be about pretty much anything, just so long as they are related to Bloodlines at least a little bit.  This can be done in any number of ways: cameos, flashbacks, journal entries, etc.
     - Entries must be submitted no later than 20 October 2007
     - Individuals may submit up to 3 different stories
     
     Winners will be selected for the following categories (stories can win in more than one category, and new categories may be added):
     
     - Best character development or interplay
     - Best atmosphere
     - Creepiest or most disturbing
     - Funniest
     
     Voting procedures will be announced in another few weeks.  This will stay under wraps for now so that everybody will have a fair chance and the system will be as transparent as possible. Prizes will be announced soon. If you have any question be sure to ask me about it before putting too much work into your stories.

     ah but what if i have a story already started on the boards, that i stopped posting, but kept writing, with characters easily recognizable as my own? does that mean i cant use it despite its unparalleled awesomeness?

  •                 This may actually be the first time I've contributed to anything of importance on this site.

  •                 Hey Skyra, is there a length limit on this? Or any sort of ratings\content limits that are involved?

     It would be nice to see originality added to the categories that people can contend in.

     or a minimum word count, or limitations on media (so must be short story, etc.)

  •                 Try to keep it under 30 pages.  Any longer than that, and its rating might suffer because people just don't like to read novels on a computer screen.
     
     As for content...no limitations.  (I hope that doesn't come back to bite me)  Slayden and q-hat have done some really out-there short stories, but they were presented in an intelligent, artistic manner so graphic content is fine by me.  Just submit whatever you want, and if I deem it to be "Black Dog" edgy, I'll indicate as much when I publish all of them.
     
     Again, be sure to email it to me rather than posting it yourself.

  •                 I may have an idea. And this time it won't be about three eyed fallen angels. Not shure if it will ever get made tough.

     It's now Oct 1st here on the east coast. Can we get a progress report on who's participating and when you anticipate finishing?
