Contest Announcements

This is the longest contest post yet! Get comfy... As usual, they are listed with the contest ending soonest at the top.

That Thing Called Love O/S Contest - ends 10/22/09

Love, it touches us all in some way, shape or form. Whether it be romantic love, brotherly/sisterly love, parental love or platonic love, we've all given and received it at some point in our lives. How do you show someone how much you love them? Do you extend an estranged brother or sister forgiveness? Do you give up one of your dreams so your child can follow theirs? Do you take a less fortunate friend on the vacation of a lifetime because you know they'd never be able to experience it otherwise? Do you let the love of your life go so that she can give herself to hers?

We want to know what your idea of the greatest expression of love is, and here's your chance to flex those brain muscles, and let that love and creativity flow. There's only one expression of love you cannot include: Sex.

All one-shots must be free of sex, intercourse, lovemaking, insertions of tabs into any slots, and so on and so forth. There can be no fondling of breasts, no hand jobs, no oral, and no nudity whatsoever. No mentions of hardened cocks or wet pussies, or how much one character is aroused. No touching of genitals through clothing. No grinding. No lemons. No limes. No orgasms. No dry-humping. Kissing on the mouth is as racy as you can get (leg hitches are allowed), and yes we know we sound like your parents.

Sound difficult? To some it will be. But you can do it, we know you can.

This contest will run from September 22, 2009 - October 22, 2009

This contest is open to everyone. Please be sure to read the rules below as well as the Entry Information. Not following the rules/procedures will disqualify you.

1. Your O/S must be free of any of the activities listed above. Don't try to find loopholes, please. Be creative and show people loving each other without being physically intimate -that's the point of this contest.
2. All pairings accepted, and your entry can be AU or AH.
3. There is a 5,000 word minimum, and a 15,000 word maximum. Any entry not meeting these qualifications will be omitted from judging.
4. Collaborations are allowed.
5. You can enter as many times as you'd like.

Entry & Judging Information

1. To enter, you must send your O/S in an email or attachment to thatthingcalledlovecontest (at) gmail (dot) com before 11:59PM EST on October 22, 2009. The subject of your email must be in the following format: STORY TITLE - PEN NAME
2. The entries will be stripped of all identifying information and distributed to the judges on October 23, 2009. The person distributing the entries for judging will not be a judge - at no point will a judge know which one shot belongs to which author.
3. Judges will narrow the entries down to five (5) finalists for each category (Best Romantic Love, Best Platonic Love, and Best Familial Love), which will then be posted to our profile and put up for an anonymous vote by the public on November 5, 2009. Because of our desire for anonymity and fairness in judging, you may not post your entry to your FF profile until after the winner has been announced. We will be checking, and doing so will disqualify you.
4. The O/S must be original to this contest. It cannot be an outtake from a current fic, although it may be continued once the contest is over.
5. Spelling and grammar will be taken into consideration, so please make sure yours are correct!

The stories will be judged using a point system (1-10 points for each category, for a possible total of 40 points) based on the following: story concept, characterization and plot development, grammar and spelling, and success in portraying the reason and feeling behind the expressions of love portrayed in the submission. Score sheets will be kept for each participant, and will be available for review upon entrant's request.


First, second, and third place winners will be placed in three separate categories: Best Romantic, Best Platonic, and Best Familial Love

Hosted by: The Ladies of WARehab


Mina Cullen

AudioFanfictionProductions (Comprised of AngelKay17, NessieBlack14, and BellaLove99)


Was it Mrs. Peacock in the library with a rope? Or maybe Colonel Mustard in the kitchen with the revolver? Perhaps it was Edward Cullen in the parking lot with the Volvo? Everyone loves the mystery of murder, so how about a murder mystery? Feel free to go a little wild with this, use past murders as inspiration, or come up with your own sick and twisted idea!

The Evidence Bin:

  • Story must have both murder AND mystery.
  • Lemons are acceptable as long as they tie in to the story.
  • Must have at least one Twilight character and any pairings are accepted.
  • Entries may be canon, AU, or AH and may be of any genre (even crackfic as long as you can make murder and mystery humorous).
  • Entries must be rated M (there IS a murder after all).
  • Collaborations will be accepted.
  • Limit of two entries per author/collaboration group.
  • Minimum count of 4,500 words, maximum of 15,000 words (The official word count will be assessed during the validation process via copy/paste of the entry (excluding header and A/N) into Word 2007).
  • Characters and storyline must be original (no expansions or offshoots of existing fics will be accepted).

IMPORTANT: No rape, incest, pedophilia, bestiality, or necrophilia (just try to keep it as clean as you can with a murder involved).

Taking Your Case to Court:

Submissions will be accepted NOW until October 27th 11:59 PM EDT.

You can submit your entry by PMing your story’s link to the “Whodunit?” Profile.

Using a beta is encouraged.

The Jury’s Verdict:

The open vote will begin on November 1st 12:00 AM EDT and run through November 15th 11:59 PM EDT.

The judge’s selection will be anonymous – i.e. all identifying information (author, story title, etc.) will be removed from all entries before the judges see them.

In addition, a special winner will be chosen on Halloween (October 31st) by our special guest judge and the brains behind this contest, Jezzeria, for her choice of the scariest entry. Note: Entries are not required to be scary, only if you’d like to be in the running for this special prize

Twilighed contest thread

Write What You Know Contest - ends 10/31/09

The idea is simple. Pick an event or setting from your life that is unusual or unique and write a fanfiction that takes place during that event or in that setting.

As an example, were I to enter the contest, my story would take place in the backstage world of a play. Bella would be a stage manager and Edward the arrogant lead actor who is constantly in the bathroom when he is supposed to be in his starting position. One of them would mention the Scottish Play by name onstage and have to walk around the building three times, spit over their left shoulder, knock and request to be let back into the theatre.

A not so good example would be to write a story based in high school. Sure, I've been there, but it isn't unusual or unique. Now, if I had organised a charity auction while in high school and my story took place during the auction, that would be fine.


1. Must be a Twilight fanfiction.
2. Your story must be between 5000 and 20,000 words. It does not have to be a one-shot.
3. There must be an unusual setting or occurance that you yourself have experienced!
4. There will be voting as well as a judges pick winner.
5. Entries will be accepted between September 1st and October 31st.
-Entries must be emailed to within this time frame and must include the following information

-The Mods will post the stories here, anonymously, until all voting has completed.

6. Because we want the voting to be done anonymously authors cannot post their fic anywhere else until after voting has completed.
7. Your stories can be any rating but we will not accept any story that includes graphic rape, incest, bestiality, or pedophilia.
-We reserve the right to reject your story if we feel it violates this rule. No questions asked.
8. Collaborations are allowed.

Back2Skool UNFmett Contest - ends 10/31/09

September got you down? Is the prospect of returning to the tedious task of writing papers, taking tests, and attending classes making you gloomy? Or maybe the thought of summers end approaching is depressing you? Let’s heat things up before the snow and storms cool us down, with some one-shots featuring the sexy and delectable man who is the lovable Emmett. No longer the big brother you’ve always wanted, but the real man you’ve secretly fantasized about.

(a) A term used when an uncontrollable lust takes over and no words seem right enough for the moment.
(b) The sound one makes when you see a really, REALLY hot guy, and this is the only sound one can come up with because you are blinded by the sizzle.
(c) The universal sound of sexual acts.

Autumn is coming and we want Emmett any way you can think of, top - bottom - sideways, get imaginative people!

Guidelines and Requirements:

-5,000-12,000 words
-Any and all pairings
-Stories can be written about anything and in any POV. However, Emmett must be the centralized character in the one-shot.
-Vampire or Human
-Collaborations are allowed.
-No more than 2 entries per person or collab group
-Lemons are not required (although they are perfectly acceptable), but we want to be screaming "UNF" by the end. Make Emmett luscious, swoon-worthy, get the idea. The whole concept is to create an Emmett that is the paradigm of sexiness. He is down for a good time and not afraid to show it!
-Because of the above, stories are to be rated “M” for mature content.
-You may use characters from existing stories, but the one-shot must be able to stand on its own, and written specifically for this contest.
-One-shots can be continued after the contest only after polls are closed and winners are announced.
-Entries must have proper grammar and spelling. A beta is highly recommended. If you do not have one, Project Team Beta is an excellent source.
-Authors must be 18 or older to enter.

Submissions will be accepted from now until October 31st.

To submit your entry, please upload it to your FF page, and then PM us the link. All submissions will be read and reviewed by the judges for validation before they are added to the C-2. Once validated, the judges will add the one-shot to the “Back2Skool UNFmett” Contest C-2, and the author will be notified via PM.

If your submission does not meet our requirements, we will inform you of the reason(s) why. You may fix the error and re-submit before the submission deadline if you so choose.

Please Note: We will not accept entries that contain rape, pedophilia, or any other creepiness.


Voting will take place November 1-November 8 by means of a blind poll.

Also at this time, the judges will begin their anonymous voting, meaning we will remove the author’s name and other pertinent information in order to make a fair and non-biased decision.

Winners and Prizes:

Winners will be announced on November 10th.

In addition to UNF-tastic bragging rights, the following prizes will be awarded…

1st Place- A one-shot written specifically for you on the topic of your choice, and a banner for your story. 2nd Place- a banner for your story.

Judge’s Choice Categories:

  1. The UNFmett Royale (Best Overall UNFmett)
  2. Panty Dropper UNFmett (The one that makes us squirm in our seats and gets our panties wet)
  3. Brand New UNFmett (Most Original UNFmett)
  4. The UNF-ette award (Best new author)

The Judge’s Choice award winners will receive a banner for your story and UNFmett Icons.

Mandatory Header:

All entries must include this header...

Esme’s Erotic Ecstasy Contest - ends 10/31/09

Hosted by kikiwhore (aka kikikinz and coldplaywhore)

For the love of all that is holy… when will Esme get her loving? TELL ME WHEN!! (on hands and knees begging like a little bitch)

Okay, now that that is done… kikikinz and coldplaywhore (aka kikiwhore) have decided, against their better judgment, to host a little contest to celebrate all things Esme. She’s not only a strong female role model, she’s also quite the MILF who doesn’t get nearly enough play in the Fan Fic World.

So we are imploring both newbies and established writers and readers to jump on the bandwagon and throw some love behind Esme. Lemons are not required, but are encouraged.

The overall objective of this contest is to give Esme some much needed loving. We would prefer a drunken, flirty and downright wicked Esme, but it’s not a requirement, she’s just sassier and funnier this way.

We’re also all for Esme getting her loving from anywhere and anyone. Do you want to see Esme the cougar with Jasper or perhaps she’s getting it on in a threesome with Carlisle and Newton. Hell, bring on the ladies and have Esme and Angela get it on. We’re up for anything that you want to write as Esme gets the love she so oh clearly needs. Bring on the Crack-Fic and Twi-Slash!

The only rules of the Esme contest are: No rape, no pedophilia, no drugs and NO creepy stuff. ‘Nuff said.

We even have one of those fancy schmanzy banner things so you know we're legit! : Check it out here!

Contest is open to everyone as long as you're old enough to vote. If you're under the age of 18, you shouldn’t be anywhere near this ‘M’ rated stuff, we know you are out there youngins.

All entries must be a one shot story with a 10k word limit and please do your best to edit and get your stuff beta’d. There really are people out there who want to pre-read and edit your stuff for you, find them. Feel free to enter as many times as you would like and you are welcome to do a collaboration with another author should you wish.

This is a one-shot contest. Should you wish to expand on your story after the contest has closed and winners are announced, please feel free, but don’t do that shit beforehand. It’s not fair to everyone else and you will be disqualified.

Upload your story to your profile, with the following items at the top and then send us a PM so we can upload it to the C2. Easy peasy? Yeah, I thoughts so.

kikiwhore presents Esme’s Erotic Ecstasy Contest

Story Title:



Vamp or Human:


Depending on the amount of entries, it'll either be a straight poll vote OR if there are a lot (crosses fingers in excitement) judges will narrow down the choices and then the public will choose a winner.

First place will get the option of either basking in the glory of winning this fucktabulous contest or having a banner designed by my personal banner bitch, flightlessbird11.

Entries accepted between September 15th and midnight on October 31st. Voting will take place between November 1st -14th with the winner of the public to be announced on November 15th.

When Love Was New - ends 11/01/09

The rest of the day, the following night, were hardly enough for her thoughts. She was bewildered amidst the confusion of all that had rushed on her within the last few hours. Every moment had brought a fresh surprise; and every surprise must be a matter of humiliation to her.--How to understand it all! How to understand the deceptions she had been thus practicing on herself, and living under!--The blunders, the blindness of her own head and heart!...To understand, thoroughly understand her own heart, was the first endeavour. To that point went every leisure moment which her father's claims on her allowed, and every moment of involuntary absence of mind.

How long had Mr. Knightley been so dear to her, as every feeling declared him now to be? When had his influence, such influence begun? When had he succeeded to that place in her affection, which Frank Churchill had once for a short period, occupied?--She looked back; she compared the two--compared them, as they had always stood in her estimation, from the time of the latter's becoming known to her--and as they must at any time have been compared by her, had it--oh! had it, by any blessed felicity, occurred to her, to institute the comparison. She saw that there had never been a time when she did not consider Mr. Knightley as infinitely the superior, or when his regard for her had not been infinitely the most dear. She saw, that in persuading herself, in fancying, in acting to the contrary, she had been entirely under a delusion, totally ignorant of her own heart--and, in short, that she had never really cared for Frank Churchill at all!

-Emma, Jane Austen

Ahhh, that moment when we realize we are in love! It isn't always a bolt out of the blue, and it's not always a painful, humiliating realization as poor Emma's was. There are so many ways one realizes that love has found them...and that is what this contest is about.

Starfish422, mozzer0906 and Touchstone67 invite you to write a Twilight-based story about the moment a character realizes they are in love. Please note that this does not require a HEA or fluff - not all love ends with a happily ever after or is easy to realize.

The story must be an original one-shot - may not be an outtake from an existing story. The fic can be continued after the contest has ended, and you may make reference to this in you author's notes. Collaborations are accepted. There is no limit on the number of entries an author can submit. Each story is limited to 15,000 words, and we ask that you strive to remain within that limit.

Once your story has been posted, please send a PM to our link above. STORIES WILL BE VALIDATED FOR SPELLING AND GRAMMAR, and if the story does not pass validation, it will be returned to you. You will, however, be most welcome to resubmit with corrections to spelling and grammar. If you wish to obtain a beta, we strongly recommend you check out Project Team Beta

Once the story has been validated, it will be added to ours judges' criteria and, if the story is hosted on fanfiction(dot)net, it will be added to the C2. The entries are not required to be posted on fanfiction(dot)net. They can also be on any other hosting medium - Twilighted, Blogger, LiveJournal. If your story is not on fanfiction(dot)net, it will not be added to the C2, obviously, but it will not affect the judging process in any way.

The story may contain NO LEMONS (we define a lemon as penetration of any orifice; fellatio, cunnilingus, rimming).

The following actions are allowed:
- kissing
- manual (hand) stimulation of another, or masturbation
- dry humping

Please note these are not REQUIRED, but rather allowed. An entry that is entirely without lemons is fine too.

Be forewarned: stories that contain non-consensual acts will be automatically disqualified.

If you have any questions, please PM us or ask us over on our thread on Twilighted

We will begin accepting entries on September 15, 2009; and we anticipate that we will accept entries until November 1, 2009 (we may extend it a bit but it will not be sooner than Nov 1). All entries must bear the following heading:

Mix It Up - ends 11/14/09

Rules and Information:

There have been a deluge of contests and challenges in the TwiFic fandom recently. It seems like every time you turn around another one is being held. The variety and uniqueness of each contest/challenge increases with each new one. That’s great, it really is, but there are so many of them.

The purpose of this contest is to poke a little fun at ourselves. If you can’t laugh at yourself, then you’re doing something wrong. This is not a dig at any one contest or person. Please don’t be offended. It’s all in the name of good, clean (or not-so-clean), fandom fun!

Main challenge: Write a story including at least 4 of the themes listed below. Because this is all in good fun parody and crack!fic are encouraged, but all genre’s are welcome. If you can write a serious (non-parody/crack!fic) story using 4 of the themes...then we want to read it! Bring It!


  • Story must include/use at least 4 contest themes. A list of approved contest themes listed below.
  • Entries can be Crack!fic, Parody or if you can do it…SRS BSNS! We want to see what you can come up with.
  • One-Shots only. 2500 word minimum. 12,000 words maximum, but please don’t go crazy. You may continue the one-shot into a full length story if you want. But please wait until the contest is over.
  • Story must be a new story. Please do not submit something already posted. Out-Takes/Side-Shots are welcome as well.
  • All stories must be posted to Sorry.

  • Anything Goes! No really ANYTHING GOES! Bring it!
  • You must follow the rules/guidelines of the original contest in regards to lemon/smut restrictions only. If the contest stated NO SMUT then no smut is allowed. If the contest allowed lemons/smut but with restrictions because of theme, those are still in place. If a contest required smut, but the smut wasn't part of the overall contest theme then it is not required for us. Examples: 'When Love Was New' allows lemons/smut, but not penetration or oral activities (that would still apply). 'Love Through Lemons' requires smut, but not the use of the word 'Love' (again still applies), 'Steamy Movie Crossover' required lemons/smut, that rule does not apply for this contest.
  • All entries must be beta’d for spelling and grammar before submitting. If you don’t have a beta check out Project Team Beta
  • Voting will be done by blind poll.
  • There will be winners in Special Judges categories: Best Use of Themes, Story That Cracked Our Shit Up, and maybe a couple of other’s to be determined.
  • Judges: manyafandom, ninapolitan, algonquinrt, & LolaShoes.
  • Deadline for entries is Midnight EST on Saturday, November 14th. Voting will start Friday November 20th. Entries being accepted right now!
