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.

All submissions will be screened to ascertain that the following requirements have been met before being added to the Community page. Moderators reserve the right to reject, or return for further editing, any stories which they feel are not respectful of the seriousness and gravity of any questionable topics.

All entries will be read and voted on by a panel of judges where the selections will be narrowed down to 30.


Requirements:

Must feature one or more of the women in the Twilight Saga and explore their darkside.

A minimum standard of grammar is expected. You are strongly advised to use a beta.

If you are under 18 years we will not accept your submission.

Collaborations are acceptable.

Must be a one-shot and must be a new story and not an outtake from another story.

The one-shot cannot be continued until the contest is complete.

No entry limit. You may write as many as you'd like.

A maximum of 15,000 words not including header, disclaimer, AN etc.

There are no specifics on POV and all categories (AUH, AH, Canon, OOC) will be accepted.

There are no taboos but sensitivity and common sense should prevail. Strong graphic content is allowed, but should not be gratuitous. Entries that are deemed inappropriate will not be accepted. If you think something in your story may require a warning for some readers put it in your Author’s Notes at the beginning.

Contest entries must be received after September 1st 2009 and no later than November 15th 2009

Deadline extended to Midnight Pacific Time on Tuesday 17th November

Public vote will be started on or about November 30th 2009, ending December 10th, 2009 at 11:59AM CST

Dark Vampward Contest: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2032482/Darkward
This contest involves just a Dark Vampire Edward. You must write a lemon for it.

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.
