Presenting: The Wrong Kind of Monster… In-law Contest!!

Hosted by: BellaFlan and katinki

Do you have a mother-in-law who's sucking your lifeblood from you? A father-in-law who is a complete dog, and not the tasty Quileute variety? Don't get mad, get writing!

From the dark and twisted minds of katinki (Indie winner for Dark Games & Twisted Minds) and BellaFlan (Indie winner for Becoming Bella Swan), comes the (Wrong Kind of) Monster-in-law contest.

Be sarcastic, be angsty, be smutty, be dark, be mean, be sad, be funny… Anything goes (pretty much… see rules, okay)

For example, a katinki and BellaFlan story description may sound something like
Esme is a monster-in-law forged by the devil himself. If she's not regaling Bella with stories about her father-in-law's penchant for pussy words, she's going into graphic detail about how Carlisle likes to bite her until she bleeds during coitus. Bella and Edward soon discover that vengeance is sweeter than blood in a tale about sex, the in-laws and TMI.

Other Examples
Mixed marriages are troublesome at best, but interspecies breeding is just ridiculous. Bella knows she's not Jacob's imprint, but Billy likes to rub that in her face every day. Can she housebreak her father-in-law, or will he continue to shit all over their marriage?

Emmett can't believe his luck in scoring with Rosalie Hale. She's beautiful, horny, rich and er-- horny. But the Hales have a dark secret in the form of Esme, the psychotic mess that is his new mother-in-law. Promiscuity runs in the family, and soon, poor Emmett learns that crazy doesn't fall far from the tree...

Pretty much any Jake/Nessie story would surely include all sorts of messed up oedipal themes. Just think of the possibilities!!

Pairing: Any, but see content limitations
Content Limitations: NO incest (blood relation/adoption), rape, or pedophilia. Offending submissions will be disqualified upon receipt.
Number of Entries: 1 single entry per author plus 1 collaboration
Outtakes: Yes, they are permitted. BUT the story should stand on its own as a separate O/s. In other words, readers should be able to read, know everything they need to know, and not have to refer to the original fic.
Continuations: Must wait until after the contest is over to continue.

All submissions will be validated upon receipt for adherence to rules and a base level of quality. The use of a beta is highly suggested; no resubmits if a submission is rejected. Judges cannot participate, beta, or pre-read submissions.

Pimpage is allowed and encouraged, but should be kept to only that - promotion. No holding chapters for ransom, no bribery, no inappropriate involvement from your fellow authors (ie they can’t bribe their readers to vote for you). If we find out that you aren’t playing fair, we’ll disqualify.
