Heyloo twilighters! It's time to shake things up a bit on Twilight Archives with... (you guessed it) a contest!
"It was a dark and stormy night..."
This quote was penned by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, a Victorian novelist with a certain attention to dramatic flair. You must include this quote somewhere in your fanfic. The contest is not limited to any charater or time frame, just keep in mind that it must be Twilight-related. If you plan on entering a piece of art, you must explain how the quote is incorporated into it... So get creative with this, guys =) Was it dark and stormy when Alice was changed? Did Esme make that fatal jump over the edge during a storm? Is Aro planning to unleash world chaos under the cover of dark storm clouds?
Can you capture Bella as she is about to jump over the edge of the LaPush cliff in a painting? Are you going to explore the chambers of the Volturi Castle through a drawing? What about those comic strips?
ALL entries must be submitted by Saturday, August 1! Please make sure you send an email to all of the mods containing the link to your submission only after they've been validated. Include your pen name in your email! We'd love to give credit to you wonderful authors and artists, but can only do so if we have a name :)
Email Addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, --------------, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be first, second, and third places (as well as two honorable mentions) given out for the writing category and the art category. Banner makers are welcomed here, as the winners will need banners for their entries! More below.
