Love, Actually O/S Contest
And that is what we are looking for—love stories. In particular, non-canon love stories. We believe not every relationship starts and ends in bed, so write us a love story that doesn’t turn into a sex-fest. Sometimes, the anticipation can be even better than the fulfillment. Show us your romantic side!

Here are the rules:
This is a Twilight-themed contest.
Your story must be a new one-shot and not be an outtake or continuation of another story. We want the story no one has seen yet. Continuations of your entry/entries will NOT be permitted until winners have been announced.
The One Shot must be between 3,000 and 15,000 words not including an A/N or the contest heading which must be included in the document.
ONLY NON-CANON pairings.
Any Rating is allowed, however stories must NOT contain a lemon. A little bit of UST is fine, but don’t take it over the line.
This is an anonymous contest: you may tell people you entered, however you may not reveal what story is actually yours. Any pimping of one particular story will be questioned. The point is to promote ALL the entries.
Collaborations are allowed, but please remember to include all members’ pen-names in the heading.
The limit is two entries per individual or collaboration.
And since these are NON-Lemon writings, we should hope we will not see any rape, incest, pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia or other particularly icky stuff.
All stories must be beta’d and will be validated.
If you don't have a beta, we suggest sending the story to Project Team Beta:However, they do take time, so you will need to get the story to them early.
Submissions should be sent to:
We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does meet the rules.
