So, seeing as people are up for it, let's give this thing a shot.

The contest will run from today (13/10/05) and end 01/11/05. If more time is wanted, please comment and I'll arrange something. The general rules are the same as those for the community.


The theme of the contest will be the seven deadly sins; you can either do two to seven short drabbles (as long as they amount to over 1, 000 words and all involve the same character(s)) or use just one sin for your fic.

As stated above, the fic must be at least 1, 000 words. Other than that, there are no lenght restrictions.

Any genre is good, as well as rating, pairing (if wanted) and choice of character(s).

However, the fic must contain the following phrase; "*character name* had never been one to drink early, but this morning s/he had to make an exception." It can be modified slightly to fit your fic.


1st place; Sixth months paid LJ time or Twelve months 100 user pictures or One rename toke.
2nd & 3rd places; Two months Paid LJ time or Six months 100 user pictures.



Post fics as usual, but label them in the subject line as [CONTEST ENTRY]

- El modo.

I'm planning on doing several drabbles, does each drabble have to include the phrase or can it just appear once in the whole set?

It only has to be used once!

Really.. but not like unlimited, right? Up to how many? >_> (So, I could make like, two sets of several drabbles?)

questions: who chooses the winners? you, the mod? is there to be a poll, so that members can vote?

I might give this a try, since I am still kinda new to the whole writing thing. Question though...what exactly do you mean by AC/LO canon? I assume that this means as long as the fic/drabble involves the pairing of characters from these , and not OCs (which I wouldn't do anyways). I just need to make sure that the pairing I am thinking of will be acceptable. *keeps fingers crossed*

Thanks ^__^

For AC, anything set two years after the game, involving any of the characters is good.

And for LO, anything pre-game at all is acceptable.

Do both fics have to include the line?
nephilim on October 14th, 2005 09:15 pm (UTC)
Nope, it only has to be used once. :)

I just wrote and posted my drabble... I forgot about that line.. can I fix it? Or is it too late?

Uh, just noticed, you mean Jan. 06, right?
And yeah, who judges this? Do we all vote? Or are there chosen judges?
nephilim on October 23rd, 2005 09:11 pm (UTC)
No, 1/11 is November first. :) Although I think I shall be extending it.

There'll be chosen judges, out side of the comm. So it's nice and unbiased.
Jane Jonessolitaryjane on October 23rd, 2005 10:23 pm (UTC)
Ohhhh. Oh shit, I better get cracking. I think it'd be better if it's like, Nov. 15 or something . . . eh. Thanks for the clarification for somebody who can't read dates. :-)
Jane Jonessolitaryjane on October 24th, 2005 12:31 am (UTC)
Okay, another question. *sorry* When it said the drabbles have to involve the same character(s), um, how strict is that? I'm planning to write from different people's point of views on one situation. Is that okay?
ex_sui on October 24th, 2005 02:27 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm planning to do the same. I'm pairing each sin with a character. (repeating what you said) Is that okay? :/
