For the Love of Women: A Twilight Femmeslash O/S Contest

Hosted by the femmes of L’amour de Femmes: fngrcufs, bookjunkie1975, venis_envy, miztrezboo and lightstardusting.

Call it femmeslash.
Call it femslash.
Call it girlslash.
Call it whatever you like, we want yours!

L’Amour de Femmes is hosting an anonymous Twific femmeslash one-shot contest. We love great femme and we’re looking for more. There are so many fascinating female characters in the Twilight universe, and we can’t wait to see what happens when you pair two of them up.

Alice and Bella? Sure. Bella and Leah? Absolutely. Irina and Kebi? Why not? We’d love to see a broad spectrum of pairings here. Same goes for storyline. Do we love heat with a little dirty? Sure, we do. But we also love sensual and seductive, or heartfelt and tender. All of the above? Bring it!

At the end of the day, we are looking for well written fic about female/female romantic and/or sexual relationships. Two women together is a beautiful thing, and we know that the many talented writers in this fandom can showcase that.

So give us your best, your most beautiful, your most creative, you most where-in-the-world-are-my-shamwow-boyshorts. Give us your girls! We can’t wait!
