I GET OFF IN VOLTERRA CONTEST
Who are we?
We are a small band of women who put together a little blog called Altered Lions and Sacrificial Lambs. We call ourselves Lambs. We have a fierce love for the men of Twilight and try to portray that love via our blog,
Why are we hosting this contest?
Each month on our blog, we will be doing a different “Character Study”. We do our best to recommend fics that feature this character in a way that we like. This doesn’t mean they have to be a part of the main pairing, but rather that we liked that portrayal of that character. For example, we chose Jasper for November and Emmett for December. January will be for The Volturi. Why? When we were looking for fics to read for our future reviews, we noticed the horrid lack of really good stories that include the men of Volterra. And, most of the ones we found are rated T, which - if you know us Lambs - isn’t that appetizing. So, we have decided to help spread the love of these men by hosting a contest to honor them. It is our hope that we can up their profile; seriously increase the number of good-quality Volturi fics on FFn; and, show that the men of Volterra can be sexy, badass, fuckhot motherfuckers. We need to show that they, too, can be very interesting and compelling in their own right. Let’s get our creative juices flowing and really challenge ourselves!
Pairing must include at least one of the Volturi men (your Volturi man of choice can even be an original character).
M Rating – We like smut, so feel free to include lemons in your story. This also means you must be 18 or older to submit or read these entries.
Must be an original one-shot between 2500-10,000 words written specifically for this contest, or a one shot outtake from another story that can stand on its own.
Must be able to stand alone, although it can be an outtake from an ongoing fic. You are also free, of course, to extend to a multi fic after the contest, if you like (and, we highly recommend that you do this…)
Proofreading is strongly encouraged. If you don’t have a Beta, JaspersDestiny has graciously offered to do so for your entry to the contest. Remember: good-quality is key here.
Feel free to collaborate if you wish.
You may enter as many stories as you like.
We reserve the right to refuse entries that do not follow the rules of this contest.
We also reserve the right to refuse entries that are truly, morally disgusting, but we will validate each story and offer feedback with the author if we take issue with something in your entry. We’re fairly cool cats, so we can’t really spell out what we would consider a truly heinous entry. Let’s just deal with it when we get there. If you are unsure, please PM any one of the Lambs, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Winners & Voting
There will be two winners. One chosen by the public via a poll using the I Get Off in Volterra Contest’s FFn profile and one chosen by the Lambs.
Public voting will take place between 1/22/10and 1/29/10.
On 1/30/10, we will announce the winners with a special post on the ALASL blog and an update on both the I Get Off in Volterra Contest and ALASL FFn profiles.
The winner chosen via the public poll on FFn will receive two things: A banner designed by one of the resident Lambs; and mentions on the I Get Off in Volterra Contest’s FFn profile page, ALASL’s blog and profile page, Author Note of various stories written by the Lambs, and some of the Lambs’ profile pages.
The winner chosen by the Lambs will receive one specialty package as put together by our very own resident Italian Canadian, Jaspersdestiny, filled with all kinds of goodies to be sent to the winners home. We would also like to receive a snapshot of the winner with her basket so we can pimp your story even more! (If the winner is not comfortable with giving their address, we can discuss alternative prizes.)
