Fan Fiction Contest - Freaky Friday!

Tue Apr 24, 2012, 8:45 PM

What if one day you woke up to find out you were in the body of your favourite character and they were in your body? What crazy things would happen to you both?

This is what this contest is about: Fan Fic writers are invited to tell us what swapping bodies with a character from any fandom of their choice would be like.

 

Rules:


  1. Write a short Fan Fiction about your body swap experience with a character in a fandom of your choice.
  2. You must put YOURSELF in their body, and the fandom character in your body. We want to see both characters facing this freaky incident.
  3. You now posses their body and all their powers, but there are limitations. Please refrain from writing anything of sexual nature.
  4. The character now posses your body and has to face reality! So they no longer have their special powers and no one but themselves know about the swap. For example: They would break their hand trying to get coins to pop out of bricks! Or even a concussion (yes, this swap is hazardous to your health)!
  5. Gender swap is allowed though just remember, nothing sexual please!
  6. The swap lasts 24 hours.
  7. 500- 1000 words maximum.
  8. Entries need to be created for this contest. Anything older than April 25th will be disqualified.
  9. You can submit as many entries as you want, but you can only win once.
  10. deviantArt submission rules apply.
  11. The contest starts on Wednesday, April 25 12:00 am PST and ends Friday, May 25, 11:59 pm PST.

Oh shoot, I read the rules wrong. I have to redo some of it. Hmmm, I'll make a long and short version of it.

Mine's becoming very long. It's almost 4 pages. I hope that's okay. Since it's a whole day, and it's Nightmare Before Christmas PLUS my real life, I have to put everything in and make sure it's accurate and believable. It's becoming very long.

I hope that's okay.

And actually, I might continue the story after the contest! :)

D: my only complaint is that it has to be so short. I get it since you guys have to read through all of them but putting in both perspectives and getting a full day out of both sides of the story proved too difficult. I had to find loopholes >_<

used to participate in a monthly fan fiction contest where the maximum word count was 600. That did not stop some of the writers from creating some really poignant pieces over the years. If anything, a small word cap is beneficial for a budding writer. It teaches word economy and how to better select word choices for maximum impact.

Two questions:


1. Is it okay to use my OC to represent me?

2. Is it okay to conclude the story with everything returning to normal? I want to make a full story. =P

Hi!

1. It has to be you, not OCs. Otherwise the swap wouldn't be as interesting. ;)
2. You can finish your story however you think is best. :D

1. What if my OC is exactly like me in real life?

2. Cool, cool.

Well, then that's just a big coincidence, but it still has to be you and not an OC. :p

I'm hopefully going to enter with a Doctor Who fanfic...although, knowing how long those tend to be, I might have trouble making it all one part. I'll try, though.

Good luck!

Just a heads up, the story needs to be finished within the word limit count.

Of course you can. Just don't forget to capitalize the first word in every sentence and end them all with a punctuation mark. In fact, that's a good rule to go by no matter what you're writing... even comments.

All right. Hope I can get something down in 1k words or less...that's barely 2 pages, hardly enough room.

Yeah, I understand it's a bit restrictive, but past experiences taught us to not make the word count limit too high because people wouldn't take part. :/

I see. Might I ask, then, as someone who likes to write clearly, if there would be exceptions given?

As in this contest? I'm afraid not. For future contests we can raise the max word count of course.
