This contest was the brain child of co-host AgoodWITCH, combining her love of Broadway with that of Twilight Fan Fiction! So whether you pick a fast paced Sondheim classic, or a number from one of the newer and edgier shows to grace the Great White Way in recent years, just find a song you love and run with it. Happy writing!!

I also created a C2 for the contest, so subscribe that way you can find out when new entries are added!
1. Entry must be between 2,000 and 20,000 words not including Contest Header and Song Lyrics.
2. Must be a one-shot and should remain one until the end of the contest. If you choose to continue the story after then we welcome it, but to be fair to all entrants the story cannot be continued, or be an outtake from another story. This includes a separate one-shot that follows these characters from another point. Any entries that break this rule will be removed from the contest.
3. All entries must include something of the citrus variety (lemons, limes, juice, zest...we aren't picky as long as it is there.)
4. All entries must be rated M. (For the obvious and not so obvious reasons.)
5. One-shot must use a song from a Broadway musical as the inspiration. Using a song written for a movie based on a Broadway show is also acceptable, but movie musicals with no Broadway connection will not be accepted. (For example: "Learn to Be Lonely" from Phantom of the Opera is acceptable, "Your Song" from Moulin Rouge! isn't.)
6. Song Lyrics should be listed under the header, but before the story.
7. Almost anything goes...pairings, content, etc. but please use discretion and common sense. Hosts reserve the right to reject entries we think cross the line.
8. There is no submission limit and collaborations are acceptable.
9. Voting will be done by rounds, with 10-12 entries per round. The number of rounds will be revealed as the number of submissions dictates. After rounds are completed, the top three in each round will move forward to the final round of voting. In addition a prize, will be awarded to the hosts' favorite story that does not make it to the final round of voting.
10. Betas are your friend! You don't have to use a FFnet beta (my mom sometimes works as a brick and mortar beta as does my sister), but we do advise getting someone to check your story over before you submit it.

The Broadway Musicals - Perfect site to look for lyrics!
All Musicals - List of shows with lyrics, but be careful...this site also lists movies so if you find something and you aren't sure...search it!
Movie Musicals: From Stage to Screen - Doesn't have lyrics, but does list songs and is a great place to get ideas if you're lost.
