If you have a mobile device you know how annoying the Auto Correct feature can be. It changes words without rhyme or reason, and if you’re chatting with someone and hit “send” too quickly, it can really lead to some funny results. This contest is dedicated to all the embarrassing, questionable, hilarious, and just plain WTF auto correct moments.

We want to see what happens when our favorite Twilight characters end up in these awkward and embarrassing situations all because of malfunctioning technology.

Maybe Edward texts Bella, but auto correct makes it seem like he's breaking up with her.

Or Carlisle sends Esme a message that makes it seem like he's doing something weird with the family pet.

Let your imagination run wild, and show us the craziness that can happen all because of an auto correct.


CONTEST RULES

- All entries must be ANONYMOUS. So please do not post or continue your story anywhere until after the winners have been announced.

- You may promote the contest and say that you entered, but if you reveal which story is yours you will be immediately disqualified, and that would just be sad. Please do not reply to reviews for your story until the contest is over and winners are announced. Remember, the judges have eyes everywhere, and will find out if you're not keeping your entry anonymous.

-Because this is an anonymous contest, we ask that you do not mention your Beta's name in your author's note. While we understand that you want to give your beta and or prereader credit for their hard work, we want this contest to remain as anonymous as possible. Any A/N that include names of beta's or prereaders will be deleted.

- All entries must be original, new for this contest. Participants are more than welcome to continue the story after the contest concludes.

- All entries must use one of the picture prompts (link to prompts can be found below) as inspiration for their story and include their autocorrect prompt somewhere in the story.

- Collaborations are welcome.

- Two submissions per person/collaboration. This means if you submit a collab, you may also submit 1 story of your own as well.

- Participants must be 18 or older.

- Minimum of 2,000 words and maximum of 10,000 words, not counting the header and a/n.

- All POV’s welcome.

- All genre's are welcome.

- This is the DYAC Contest, but your stories will not autocorrect themselves. All o/s must be BETA’d. We will be validating all entries for grammar, spelling, etc. If there are a large number of errors then your entry will be sent back to you so that you may edit and revise before resubmitting. After all, we all want to read your best work.

- All pairings are welcome; in fact…bring on the non-canon pairings because we love them all!

- AH/AU/Canon/Non-Canon/Slash….it’s all good in our book.

- While the auto correct may reference some awkward situations with animals, children, etc., we DON'T want to see any actual scenes of rape, incest, abuse, bestiality, or pedophilia.

- Lemons are awesome and we’ll gladly read them but they are not required.
