Now, let's look over the rules to determine which list you're on, shall we :-)

@ Time frame: Entries may be submitted between December 6th and January 10th.

@ All entries must feature Eric and Sookie as the main couple, but feel free to include any and all additional characters!

@ All entries must have either a Christmas or New Years theme (or both if you’re feeling frisky).

@ Entries can be canon, AU, AH, and can be any genre (romance/humor/angst/etc - please just no rape or incest)

@ All participants must be 18 years or older. They don't call this X-mas for nothing, hehe.

@ Entries should be rated M, and we encourage zest, lemons, explosions of all sorts :-)

@ Entries must be a one-shot and should be a new story (if you wish to continue it, which we always encourage, please wait until the contest has ended).

@ Entries must have a minimum 4,000 words and a maximum 9,000 words (please do not ask for more, and no… that does not include the AN)

@ Participants can only enter a maximum of 1 one-shot.

@ PLEASE – all entries MUST be beta’d. If it is not beta’d, we will not accept your fic.

@ All entries must be submitted no later than 11:59PM EST on January 10th.

@ Public voting for the finalists will be announced at the end of the contest, and the judges have narrowed it down to the top 5 finalists. You will have two weeks to vote for your favorites before we announce the winner.

@ All entries must feature the name of the contest in their story description, and the following heading:

Disclaimer:

:Please PM us or email us a link to your story, once it is uploaded.:

CLARIFICATION OF RULES: I hate that we feel it necessary to post this, but please adhere to the rules of the contest. Your entry MUST be a unique story and not a continuation or part of any trilogy type of story. If the entry contains a character from any previous stories you've written, you MUST make sure that there is no cross-reference or tie-in at all to the previous fic.

Any story that does not adhere to the rules above will result a large Viking in a sexy santa outfit coming down your chimney over Christmas, and giving you a lump of coal in your stocking and adding your story to the naughty list. Trust me, you don't want to end up on the Viking's naughty list...hmm, or maybe you do? :grins:


If you're looking for a beta, we have a list of volunteers on the Naughty or Nice One-shot Contest thread, or you can ask for help in the Writer's Corner and Beta Requests thread.


In case you were wondering, here are a couple sites about Vikings, Yule, Christmas Tradtion, etc. I cannot vouche for the authenticity of what they say, but it's at least interesting to see how Eric may have celebrated this time of year.

I'm sure there are others out there, but they all seem to have a commonality among them.


So, what do you get for your efforts?
