Rules

Every entry must revolve around the central theme by taking place in autumn and incorporating autumn elements. Any and all plotlines, with the exception of those listed below, are allowed and welcome.

Those who do choose to submit an entry with a lemon, however, will be in the running for the Pumpkin Spice Lemon award, which comes with a winner's banner.

This is a Twilight-based contest, though crossovers are allowed and welcome.

No bestiality, rape, incest, RPF, or pedophilia.

All entries must be betad.

While entries may be continued after the contest is over, all entries must stand alone as one-shots.
