It's back!

Here the writers of Comic Vine will be put against each other to decide who's the best!

The tournament is simple. Each round will be given a specific set of rules which the contestants MUST FOLLOW. Two or more writers will be put against each other each round. They will then have a set amount of time to write and submit their stories to me (usually a week). Once I've received all the stories, voting threads will be made for the match-ups. The winners will advance to the next round where they will be given a new set of rules and so on. Get it? Cool.

_______________________________________________________________

Round 1: Every writer must choose one character from DC Comics and one from Marvel as the foe.

RULES:

You cannot use a character another writer has chosen, so once you've picked two, post them in the thread here. First to post, gets the characters.

You have one week to submit your story. (November 15, EST)

Minimum 500 word count and maximum 1500.

Once finished, you must submit your story to me (by PM). The sooner I get the stories, the sooner the voting threads will come up.

Once your story's submitted, it cannot be edited. It will be returned to you if the spelling and grammar are unacceptable.

Be respectful of the other writers.


If you have any questions, feel free to either post them here or PM me.


Set-up

AweSam vs. TommyTheHitman

Joshmightbe vs. Wildvine

Bronze_Surfer vs. 4donkeyjohnson

@razzatazz: I don't know what you're talking about, but that's a shame. If you find time to vote once the threads are up, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, could you pin this up?

Nope!

How many times has this been started, stopped and died? We've gone through to completion ONCE! If we can't get people to read and vote in a simple fan-fic comp...

No, no thank you

@batkevin74: Technically failed three time. I'm hoping to once again succeed and I was also hoping for you support, but it's fine. If you have the time to vote, it would be much appreciated.

@awesam: To use a baseball analogy, isn't three strikes and...

Regardless if and when it gets off the ground, I'll vote. Might encourage others to vote in the normal regular fan fic comp we have going that people avoid/miss/ignore/shirk/forget

@batkevin74: I'm technically on my third. The first was a failure, the second a "success", then followed by two failures.

@awesam: how many contestants are u aiming for?

#15 Edited by AweSam (7053 posts) - - Show Bio

@monarch_chronicle: I have no specific aim, but how the tournament is set will depend on how many contestants I get.

The Fan Fiction section has a horrible history for repeating itself.

@batkevin74: I remember my first story here. This place was my CV home xD Now I feel like the dejected outcast who only comes to abuse the section :P

@awesam: Sorry man I gotta bow out. I wanted to but I got wrapped up in the Iron Age relaunch on top of that I got a sick kid here and I just don't have time.

I'm working on something

@tommythehitman @bronze_surferSad to say that you two were the only ones to submit stories to me. I don't want your work to go to waste, so we'll have a one round tournament consisting of our three stories. I'll have it up today.

@youngjustice: I totally screwed it up again :/ My account wasn't working for like a month.

@the_poet @razzatazz So... is there a reason why I wasn't able to get on? Was I banned (again) and then unbanned (again)?

@awesam: like razz, I don't know why you were having trouble. While it might not help you now, in the future if you have difficulties use the support@comicvine.com email (also found in the help page) and the staff could try to help you.

@awesam: Ah I see.

By the way, would you like me to pull up the old Fan Fic Tournament thread to see if you can bring in some people for this one?

@awesam: is this still active? I'm not really asking for myself to participate, but I was just curious if this was inactive and if I should unpin it or something...
