The Judges also have various other recommendations that will follow in a few days.
We all love a ‘good’ Darkward or Darksper but if you really want to see Dark, leave it to a woman.
Deadlier than the Male?
Dominant, obsessive, manipulative, cruel, cold, jealous, angry, neurotic, passionate, predatory? Whatever, a woman will always go that extra mile. There are very few dark female characters in Twific so let your imagination run wild and let’s balance things up. We would really like to see some fresh, original ideas.

Entries September 15th - October 10th
Darkward - In the Dark: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2003775/Darkward_In_The_Dark
The "In the Dark" contest hopes to introduce darker concepts with the characters of the Twilight Saga, primarily Edward Cullen.
We all know and love a good Darkward story – and they undoubtedly do well within the Twific community. The hope of this contest is to promote further introduction of his character, and to hopefully have one-shots turn into, create, or inspire full-blown stories we can all enjoy.
Entries August 30th - October 31st
Both Les Femmes Noires and Darkward In the Dark accept entries that have already been entered into other contests.
