Yes! (Hopefully) If there are no length issues.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

I'll see what I can do, but I won't object to the contest rolling ahead without me.

I am he who rules the world, don't you know? One little piece at a time.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Well my entry is complete. It weighs in at 9 pages and 3,997 words. I like the way it turned out.
The problem is that it is based more off of frenzied inspiration than the prompt. I have the small force. I have the fortified position. I feel like I have the last stand feeling down. I'm hoping I have the writing and the wow factor.
But I do not have any brilliant tactics or impressive feats. Hmm. I actually have no tactics. And I can't say the scenario is exactly original, especially if you know where I got it from. I did try to compensate for that with a bit of Valhalla diversity thrown in, but... still.
Ehh... I don't know about this one. I feel like I need to fix it up, but I don't know how to fix it up without making it something completely different. And I like the way it turned out, so I really don't want to change it too much.
What do you think, TAF? Can you take a lack of tactics and originality for amped up wow factor? Or will that detract from my placement?
~TGRF, who will edit if he gets inspiration.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

If your pluses outweigh your lack of tactics and originality, then it should be okay--lots of entries ignore small parts of their prompt. If someone else can pack significant wow factor and tactics/originality, they will likely get more points, however. You should be okay, unless you're really that dissatisfied with how it might turn out. I wouldn't worry about it, but nobody else has submitted anything yet, so you could hang onto it for now and wait for more ideas/inspiration.

~TAF, who can live without a few aspects.

I make no guarantees. I don't write unless I have an idea I like. I don't have one yet. I'll keep percolating and see what comes out.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Well I guess I might as well post it now. It may not be exactly the most original of works, but hey, inspiration has to come from somewhere. I did manage to edit in some other stuff I think you were looking for, TAF (impressive feats and tactics and all), so it should be able to hold its own now.
It is advisable to be in a suitably epic mood before you begin reading this. During reading, please avoid all encounters with pets, light/wordy music, and potentially vocal ads from unknown sources. Let the words fill you, and experience the epicness unblemished.
I give you now, my entry:

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Well that was fast. Let's see here...

Post-Reading Edit: Ah, very nice! It captured the basic essence of the prompt, and managed to pull me in quickly and efficiently. Can anyone else do better? Only time will tell!

P.S. Is Saylind supposed to be the Official Saylind? You refer to her as a "he" on multiple accounts.

I suffer from permanent confusion on the matter of Saylind. In fact, until today I was under the impression that she served Jandar. And not owning the figure, all I have to go off of is the collector's guide from SotM, and the helmet unfortunately makes her look like a he.
So yes. Official Saylind. With alterations.

C'mon people. Will you let a mixed up tale with an alternate-universe Saylind win?

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Well, it's been a whole **** **** **** month, and I'm getting' bored. As such, unless someone can bring me something to hold me over or convince me otherwise, I will be commencing the judging at the end of this week. And with only one contestant, that'll be pretty easy.

If yer working on something for this prompt, please let me know if ye need more time. Okay? Okay.

~TAF, who apparently isn't so good at this whole prompt thing.

When I wrote the 'win by default' rule, it was meant to be incentive to have it never happen. Don't let me win by default! NOOOO!!
