TOW The Important Dinner - by rpfangirldc
What was that TV show called again? You know, the one with all the friends? Oh, right… It was Friends! Everyone loves that show. And even if you somehow happened to not love it, we’re sure you’ve at least seen it. So locate those DVDs or flip through the channels until you find a rerun. We want them all! The show we all know and love chopped up and stuffed into a blender with the book we all know and love. We'd love to see Jasper and Emmett as nap partners! What if Rosalie had a touch of Monica's OCD? Edward and Bella on a break? Or maybe you want a story about Jasper and Hugsy, his bedtime penguin pal?
Here's how it's going to work:
"The cushions are the essence of the chair!"
Twi-ify that Friends-ness! Because that is the essence of this competition.
Pick your favorite episode of Friends and tweak it to fit with the Twilight characters. You must actually write it—we don't want anyone copying word-for-word an entire episode and then replacing the names. It needs to be your own story, but still recognizable as a Friends-type fic.
"Watch, learn, and don't eat my cookie."
Replace Friends characters with Twilight characters, and then write Alice's point of view of the jelly fish incident, or maybe it was Rosalie and Emmett who had a drunken wedding in Vegas.
"You're a paleontologist, dig a little deeper."
Feel free to explore your creativity! Combine pieces of episodes, toss some B-list characters in the mix. Maybe Jane is the one who runs out on her wedding and then ends up homeless writing songs about smelly cats and sticky shoes.
Mix it up! But keep in mind that it needs to have some recognizable Friends attributes (plot, quotes, etc.) And also, that both batgirl and I are professional Friends fanatics, so the oneshots will have to make it through validation before being added to the C2 and passed on to our Friends fanatic judges to be assessed in their W.E.N.U.S.
"You can't say 'sex' in front of the B-A-B-I-E!"
We'd like to keep this as light and funny as possible, but please don't feel limited to write about fluffy kittens and floating bubbles. This isn't NBC, so if you feel like squeezing lemons or dropping the eff-bomb, by all means, please do so. Just add a proper rating.
And speaking of... "you don't go commando in another man's fatigues," so make sure you have a disclaimer at the beginning.
"You're the best looking undercover whore I've ever seen."
This is an anonymous contest, so please feel free to spread the word without pointing out which one is yours.
We encourage each participant to please, for the love of all that is good and holy, use a beta. If you don't have one readily available, please visit Project Team Beta to obtain one. NOTE: If submitting to PTB, you'll need to submit an Author Application form. PTB has notified me saying that they've been pretty swamped lately, so the whole process could take up to a week. Make sure you give them, and yourself, enough time!
"You're so far past the line that you can't even see the line! The line is a dot to you!"
Please don't cross any lines. No icky stuff. Ixnay on the uber nasties—rape, pedophilia, bestiality, naked old women swinging their sagging breasts in the name of "entertainment."—things of that nature.
We cannot put a limit on your greatness...
But we can certainly try.
So how about this:
Entries must be a minimum of 2,000 words written expressly for this contest (not previously posted) and a maximum of 10,000 (because, despite how it seems, we do have lives).
Please include this mandatory header:
"The one with all the Twilight"
Twi-Friends contest entry
Email entries to firstname.lastname@example.org with your pen name and a quick note if you aren't sure as to whether or not your Friends references are clear and you'd like to point them out. Also, please include a brief summary because I suck at those and, trust me, you do NOT want me writing it for you.
Submissions will be accepted through May 20th, which is a Thursday (and since I couldn't resist quoting Joey here) that means the third day of the week:
"Monday, one day; Tuesday, two day; Wednesday, when? Huh? What day? THURSDAY!"
After that, we'll take a few days to make sure everything is sorted. Voting will open May 21st at 11:59pm EST and last almost 2 weeks, ending June 3rd at 11:59pm EST. Winners will be announced Friday, June 4th.
Now let's talk prizes.
"Joey, for my last birthday you gave me a hug."
Batgirl happens to be amazingly talented when it comes to making banners, so the #1 winner by blind public poll and #1 judges pick will be awarded a lovely banner for a story of their choice (meaning it doesn't HAVE to be the twi-friends oneshot) and, since I have no talent of my own to offer as a reward, I'll also give you a hug as long as you're willing to pay shipping and handling to get me to where you are (especially if you live in Fiji). Or, y'know, a Twi-goodie bag as well.
2nd and 3rd place winners will each win a banner for their oneshot.
