Real Love Contest

Have you ever read a lemon in fanfic and thought ‘there’s no way sex is that perfect in real life.’
Due to problems with the ff.net voting system, we're still working out what's going to happen with the public vote. Unfortunately this means that the announcement of the winner has been delayed, but we're hoping that this will not be the case for more than a week. Sorry for all the inconvenience.

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest, we've loved reading all your entries, and congratulations to the winners. Feel free to post them to your own accounts now.
We want your stories based around a realistic sex scene, with all the funny, embarrassing, painful or just unexpected aspects of making love in real life. Maybe Bella and Edward’s first time is more painful than perfect, Esme doesn’t really like to swallow, Leah always gets the giggles or Emmett just can’t perform. We want all the nitty-gritty, imperfect details of how sex really is.
- All stories must include the realistic portrayal of sex or a sexual act. A little bit of plot wouldn’t go awry either.
- All pairings/characters are acceptable.
- Because of the subject of this contest, all entrants must be 18 or over to participate and all contest fics must be rated M.
- Collaborations are acceptable, but no more than two entries per person/collaboration.
- All entries must be between 2000 and 10000 words.
- Entries must be an independent one-shot, no outtakes or continuations of previous fics will be accepted. Your entry should not be continued until the contest is over.
- Entries must meet a minimum standard of spelling and grammar. Betas are your friends and we recommend that you use one.
- No entries containing rape, bestiality, paedophilia or incest will be accepted into the contest. The entries will be screened by us before they are posted.
In addition to the public and judges’ votes, we will also be giving special recognition to the winners of these categories:
- Deflated Cherry Pop – best depiction of realistic virgin lemons.
- The Closest Near Miss – the lemons that should’ve happened, but somehow... didn’t.
- That Really Happens?! – lemons you thought only existed in fanfic.
- Disaster Alert – it should have gone so right, but then it went so wrong.
- Best comedic value – the funniest realistic lemon story
All entries must remain anonymous. This is in the interests of fairness in the contest, so please do not let anyone know which entry is yours until the contest is over and the winners have been announced. Your entry will be posted to our ff.net account.
