Presenting: Smells Like Metallic Roses 90s TwiFic Contest
Hosted by: MrsSpaceCowboy
Remember when you cried when Kurt Cobain died? Or when Bjork hit the scene with her crazy Icelandic techno pop and you pretended not to like it (even though you secretly did)? Did you freak out when Dylan cheated on Brenda with Kelly, or head bang to Bohemian Rhapsody? Did your wardrobe consist of plaid flannel and ripped jeans? Or did you have an Alaia--it's like a totally important designer! Maybe you spent your Friday nights in a dark, smoky bar listening to some local band play punk or grunge. Maybe you even lost your bra in a mosh pit (or was that just me?).
It was a simpler time, when phones were attached to a cord and MTV actually played music videos!
We’re jonesing for your dopest 90s based Twilight FanFic.
That’s right. It’s time to break out the flannel and Docs.
Boy bands your thing? We want those too.
Rap? Techno? Rave? Phish head? We want it.
Line dancing? You know you tried it. Write it.
Are movies your style? So many choices…Clueless, Bring It On, Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Singles, Mallrats, and don't forget Interview with the Vampire…
Here's the deal...all we really want is TwiFic set in the 90s. It can be comedy, drama, romance, angst... whatever you want, as long as it takes place during the 90s and follows the contest rules.
Length: 3,000 to 10,000 words
All submissions will be validated upon receipt for adherence to rules and a base level of quality.
Pimpage of the contest is allowed and encouraged, but this is an anonymous contest. Please don’t hint about which entry is yours. The same applies to betas. We’d like a level playing field. If we find out that you aren’t playing fair, we’ll disqualify.
