    Hi there. Weird This contest is for all the undead lovers out there, whether it's zombies, werewolves, vampires, or some combination of the three. The one thing I've always disliked about the undead is how neglected the emotional, personal side of them is. I love reading about the turmoil in their every day life and the emotions that go along with them.

    The only thing you have to do is post on this topic claiming a spot in the contest. I'll then give you an emotion or trait, which will need to be incorporated in your story somehow, preferably in some kind of daily life setting. You are allowed to switch emotions/traits as often as you like, but you cannot change back to your previous emotion once you've requested a new one.
    Rules
    1.) Rating can be anything from G - NC-17, though I have to be honest; I'm not a big fan of graphic sex scenes. Any type of story (original, true, fanfiction) welcome as well.
    2.) Anything goes. Rape, drugs, kidnappings, fetishes, etc. Anything. If you can handle a sensitive topic and still manage to make your story shine, even better!
    3.) Word count minimum of 500, but 1,000 words is preferred. No maximum, though the results may be delayed if they're longer than about 30,000.
    4.) Poems are welcome, and there's no minimum word count for them.
    5.) Prewrites allowed, but I'd greatly prefer new things.
    6.) Link to the contest in your summary or an author's note. Also leave a link to the story in this thread.
    7.) If less than 4 people submit their story when the deadline hits, the contest will be canceled and all entrants will be treated as if they placed in third.
    8.) Multiple entries allowed, but only one can place.
    9.) Chaptered stories do not have to be finished by the deadline; I will judge based on what you have.
    How Your Entry Will Be Graded
    Brownie Points!
    If you don't include these things in your story, there will be no points deducted.
    1.) Slash/femmeslash. I love slash. Especially if it's subtle and not up in your face. Sexuality does not define a person.
    2.) Original layouts that are still readable.
    3.) Original fiction, Pokemon fanfiction, or Hemlock Grove fanfiction.
    4.) Poems.
    5.) Lupir. tehe Or a combination of 2 or more different kinds of undead.
    6.) Things that leave an impact on me.
    7.) Flawless grammar/spelling.
    8.) Long and detailed entries.
    9.) Showing character development and/or a well thought out plot.

    Well duh. File Added! Your emotion is trust.

    @ psychotic secrets;
    Your emotion is determination, if that makes sense. It's more of a trait, but.... oh well. XD You're allowed to switch one time if you'd like, but you can't go back to your previous one. Thanks for joining! Cute

    Edit: Since determination is more of a trait, you could take anticipation if you'd rather.

    omg. I love your deadline! <3 I will totally join this. It's funny because I just started writing my vampire story again. lol. That means I'm going to enter this one. If that's okay? :3 It's a romance story too which is actually perfect. :D

    Then again... it depends on the emotion, doesn't it? I'm not really sure I'm that good with emotions. ><

    Oooh yay! Very Happy

    Your emotion is curiosity. You are allowed to switch emotions once, but you cannot change back to your previous emotion once you've requested a new one.

    Thank you! Very Happy Your emotion is nostalgia. You're allowed to switch emotions once, but you can't change back to your previous emotion if you request a new one.

    I'll give it a go! I've been away from writing for about 2 years though so I may be a little rusty! This will be a good excuse for me to get back into it, I may have a pre-write but you may give me something that doesn't fit.
