Twilight Challenge!

Posted 09 Jun 08

 


 

 

Come on guys! Enter the challenge!

 

The mod staff have decided to give you guys a challenge.

The challenge consists of writing a oneshot.

The theme of the oneshot is:

Any of the Cullens perspective when Edward brings Bella to their home for the first time (Twilight)

 

 

WE HAVE EXTENDED THE DUE DATE UNTIL DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED.

 

Rules:

1. Must exceed 500 words, no exceptions.

2. Must be in ONE point of view, no shifting allowed. (Yes, Edward counts)

3. All oneshots submitted must be validated first.

4. All oneshots have to be in agreement with all submission rules (ie. formatted line breaks, grammar, spelling)

5. In the summary, write a brief summary as well as "Oneshot Cullen Challenge"

6. Please be creative as possible and stick to your character. Know them.

7. Once your story has been validated, please email your oneshot to ALL of the following email addresses, the subject saying oneshot challenge:

Kaiwynn@gmail.com;gabriella_523@hotmail.com;j3nny_b4by@yahoo.com

 

8. Winners will consist of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and two honorable mentions. The winners will be announced Sunday.

 


FAQ's

1. Can it be in Edward's perspective? Rosalie's? Emmett's?

Yes, it can. The challenge is about any of the Cullens, even those who weren't there.

 

2. If I'm automatically validated, can I still enter the challenge?

Yes, just be sure to email all of the mods after.

 

3. Does the oneshot have to be exactly accurate?

No it doesn'tm but it has to be tied somehow to that scene in Twilight.

4. How long does the oneshot have to be? Can I write before they leave for the baseball game? Can I write it when the baseball game is going on? After?

The oneshot has to be min. 500 words. The oneshot starts from the Cullens first meeting of Bella until they leave (though you can add some dialogue or a scene before Edward brings her). Do not continue on to the game, your oneshot will be disqualified.

I really hope Edward counts...I just wrote about three pages in his PoV.

Does Edward count? And exactly where are we allowed to start? I wanted to start at the beginning of chapter 15. The cullens...... how far are we allowed to write to? Is there any limit?

If you're automatically validated, it doesn't matter, you can enter the challenge as well. It could be any of the Cullens, including Emmett and Rosalie. It doesn't need to be exactly accurate, but it does have to be loosely tied to that scene.

auto validation is when you are automatically validated and you don't have to wait for the mods to check over and validate it. and thank you Lustandthrill for clearing my question up :) but just to make sure-you don't have to post your story on the site before e-mailing it do you? or do you wait like usual till the end of the challenge to post?

I know in the requirements it says that your story has to be validated but what if it's not validated by midnight on friday? Lol...I saw this yesterday and I'm working on my third perspective...lol. I'm a little worried that I won't get it posted up until thursday and if that is the case, I'm almost positive it couldn't be validated in one day. Thanks for giving us this awesome challenge! :) Be expecting an entry from me soon. Jasper=my love so I'm having fun with this one...lol. **Emma

how do you get automatic validation?

By i_LOVE_edward_cullen

.....okay, this may sound really stupid, but what exactly does one-shot mean??

By awsomealice94

Posted 11 Jun 08

to get automatic validation you have to show the mods that you can spell well, you use proper grammer, and you use the correct line breaks. it takes a while-if you just became a member chances are you aren't going to get auto-validation right away a one-shot means a story that has no other chapters. it is by itself. it is often times short (but it can be long). Challenge stories are usually one-shots.

Posted 12 Jun 08

ok, i'm not exactly sure... can i write it starting from the beginning of chapter 15?

By EdwardBiteMePlz

Posted 12 Jun 08

Nightrose...... that's what I was going to do and I asked but they said a SCENE before Bella meets the Cullens so I did a little scene then switched to them actually meeting the cullens.... hope that helped! :)

The due date is extended, yes. We felt that you didn't have enough time to complete an AMAZING one-shot for the competition.

So use our generosity to your advantage! GET WRITING! :)

By j3nn

You must post it on the site BEFORE you send it to the mods.

I'm checking submissions now, and if you email me and tell me that you need your contest entry validated, I'll check it as soon as I get the email. :)

Woo! *wipes sweat off of brow* I finished it! So, I send it to all three mods? I did, so I hope I am supposed to... otherwise might get laughed at.

ok, this is totally unrelated to the challenge, but i dont know how else to contact you people. im not exactly good with computers. ok, i submitted a story, but i just realized i had changed part of it, and that left me with too few words, four hundred and something, instead of the required five hundred. i have fixed this problem, and i was wondering, do i just submit the story again, or what

By bellabeautiful

Posted 14 Jun 08

WAIT--is it still due tomorrow? Oh, I really hope not becaues I haven't ended mine yet...lol. I'm right on the part where everyone leaves Bella and Edward alone...lol. Gosh, I'll have to type this up quickly because I think the date is tomorrow...lol. **Emma

By j3nn

Posted 14 Jun 08

BeckaSwan: Yes, please re-submit it.

bellabeautiful: No, the due date is TBA. It has been extended. :)
