Welcome to the Remember When This Was Fun contest! Remember when you would read a line in a book, see a picture on Tumblr, or hear a song on the radio, and your immediate thought was, “That would make a great fic!”? We do!
The purpose of this contest is to write some fun/scary/happy/romantic/crazy fanfiction to remind ourselves how fun Twific can be. We’ve provided thirty prompts below, one of which MUST be the first line of your fic. No exceptions! However, we’d love it if you incorporate as many book/movie/fandom canon quotes and details as you can. In other words, make this a TWILIGHT fanfiction.
Each prompt will only be used by ONE entry, so choose now! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Thanks to all who entered, we loved reading all of your stories!
Best Overall: Isabella of Lore by TheManiacalMuse
Best AU: The End of the Beginning by Alby Mangroves
Best AH: All Over Again by karenec
Honorable Mention: Bad Boy by SqueakyZorro
Story that Made Us Laugh Out Loud: Duty Weapon by BettiGefecht
Awesome First Timer: We're gonna laugh about this someday by norcaltwitard
3/20: Due to high demand we've added ten more prompts. Claim yours nows!*
sadtomato and SingleStrnd (MyLifeandHis)
Rule #1: Choose one prompt from the list below. You may edit for tense or gender pronouns ONLY. You may not alter anything else. For example, #6 could be used as “The tears I’d held back all day stream down my cheeks as his car disappears around the corner.” You may recognize some prompts straight from the pages of Twilight. Thank you, Stephenie!
Rule #2: Get your prompt approved before beginning to write. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your prompt choice EXACTLY as you plan to use it (by that we mean let us know if you are changing pronouns or tense), and we’ll let you know if you’re good to begin. Only one prompt may be used per person, so you might want to submit an alternate choice as well.
Rule #3: You can write about any pairing you wish. Keep in mind who your judges are and what makes us happy. Any straight, gay, bi, or poly combo will be accepted, except for the usual squicky stuff. No rape, pedophilia or bestiality allowed.
Rule #4: You can write AH, AU or canon vamp, but we’d like to see as many Twi references and character traits as possible.
Rule #5: We don’t have all day. Keep it under 7000 words or we’ll make you edit for length. This should go without saying, but your entry must be betaed.
Rule #6: When you’re ready to submit, post your entry to your profile and email us the link at email@example.com. We’ll take a quick look to make sure it’s ready and add it to our C2 for reading, reviewing and judging!
Deadline to request a prompt is Saturday, March 24th at midnight. However, all prompts are first come, first served. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
Deadline to submit your one-shot is Saturday, April 21st at midnight. If you abandon your prompt, you will be publicly shamed.
Winners will be announced on or before May 5th via FFn profile and Twitter. Grand prize winner will receive a box ‘o Twicrap via USPS mail. Secondary winners might get some cookies. We’re not sure yet.
