The Superhero Contest for Twific

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's... a Cullen?!?

Hosted by: SunKing and WhatsMyNomDePlume

At one point, Bella was guessing that Edward was a superhero. We're not quite done with that idea yet.

We're talking Superward. Edward Kent. Batsper aka Bruce Hale. Spidermett. Ironlisle. Rose as Catwoman? Or even a new hero/heroine? Alice as the Oracle. Sam as AlphaDog. We want your origin stories, your daring rescues, your archvillians and all that good stuff that comes with superheroes. We'll even take some spandex costumes.

We are so honored and excited to present our esteemed panel of judges.

Derdriu oFaolain, author of And With Thee Fade Away
JenWordSong, author of Die To Self
Philadelphic, author of La Canzone Della Bella Cigna
QuothMe, author of Awake in the Infinite Cold
Sobriquett, author of L'Heure Bleu

Rules:

Story MUST contain a superhero- this can be based on an established characters or an original one. They can have superpowers (radioactive spiders, anyone?) or not. They can be evil. Or not. You get the idea—there doesn’t have to be a traditional superhero, but there should be an obvious link back to the contest theme. (A caveat to this is that if you would like to write a story about a super-villain, that is valid, too.)

Any genre is acceptable. Dark and angsty ala The Dark Knight (aka Nom’s favorite movie?) Goofy and stupid (Fantastic Four, we're looking at you?) Crackfic (Kick Ass-style?) Snarky and fab? Fantasy (like The Kingdom- that's a book, the thing with the paper pages?) You write it, we'll take it. It can be canon, AU, AH, anything.

Entries must be rated appropriately according to content. Please take into account violence as well as language and sexual content when rating your entries.

Entries containing rape, pedophilia, incest or other unacceptable content as defined by the hosts will be disqualified.

Entries cannot come from any existing stories. The entry must be new material written for the competition and stand as a one-shot. Participants are more than welcome to continue the story after the contest concludes.

Word Limit: Between 2,000- 10,000 words excluding header and author’s notes. A few words over/under won’t disqualify you, 1000 will.

A maximum of three entries per author, including collaborations.

You are more than welcome to publicize your entry however you choose.
