Recently, we announced the poetry contest for all budding poets of our forum. But our biggest community of writers are the Fan Fiction writers and we got some amazing and awesome talent here. So why not explore our talent to its fullest potential and have a contest for the fan fiction writers. Yes, we understand, some of you write serious fan fiction, some humorous, some romantic... there are just so many moods and emotions involved and the same theme can be written in so many ways, in so many emotions.
So how do we do a Fan Fiction Contest, that's the question in your minds. Well, we had the same questions in our minds, as this is probably the first time we are doing it. Some collective thinking and here we are with some general rules on it.
We have made a few basic themes, which are common to almost all Television serials. Its very very generic themes and we would like you to make it as creative, as diverse and as beautiful as you can. The winners would be judged on their creativity and the number of votes garnered.
Some of the Themes are :-
Hero and heroine meet for the first time.
Entry of the villan into the plot of the story.
Tender Romantic scene between two comedians of the serial.
Two couples - Mixed doubles - wrong partners
Typical Triangle story of the lead pair and character artiste of a show.
Dreams of a child.
Long Lost love returns.
Here are the rules and guidelines of the contest:
1. Please write the fan fictions based on the above themes.
2. The fan fiction should be your own and must not have been published in any other book/ publication or websites.
3. A member can send as many entries as they like on any or all of the themes above.
4. The entries could be humourous, serious, romantic, spoof, it could
