    So, I'm going to try this again...another contest kids!!

    With the holidays sneaking up on us, I'm seeing more and more holiday movies on TV (A little early, but why not?). So, I feel the need to start a contest about the holidays!!!

    Here's your job:
    -Pick a number between 1-30 (That will be the movie)
    -Pick a number between 35-65 (Your player)
    -Take your numbers and go write a holiday story that involves that movie!

    Now, some of these movies aren't just Christmas; there are a few Thanksgiving ones, and a few New Years Eve ones too. Then, there are a few that can be anything because they cover a couple holidays in them. If there is one that's iffy (I think there's one because I ran out of movies lol) I will specify. Some of these movies are wayyy before any of our times (50s...ish) and some came out a couple years ago. I recommend IMDBing the movie before you message me to change it.

    I don't just want a simple mention of the film in the story, but some are hard to incorporate. I want to see the movie have meaning or more than just a simple mention. That's the challenge :)

    Rules
    -All Mibba rules apply...blah, blah, blah...you know the drill.

    -Grammar and spelling. I make mistakes, we all do, but watch them and edit. A few here and there are okay, but if your story is riddled with them...ughhhhhhhhhh

    -No Slash/incest...and only tidbits or the hint of smut. I want to keep the holidays pure and innocent (though I can be swayed to change this...I do have a weak spot for smut hahaha). But I'd like to keep the stories on the lighter side :)

    -Rate appropriately

    -Incorporate the movie into the story, don't just mention it once and be done :( utilize the movie in some way.

    -Put a link to your story in the summary!

    -Minimum of 1,000 words but you can write up to 5 chapters.

    -YOU CAN ONLY SWITCH PLAYERS AND MOVIES ONE TIME! And do not message me right back to change, take a bit to think it over because you only have one time!! Also, you're kinda stuck with your second choice too.

    Brownie points:
    *Adorableness!!
    *Creative!
    *You don't have to use the movie around the time of year it portrays, use it in the summer and make it work!!
    *Original layouts are awesome!

    Prizes:
    -Promote your story in my signature
    -One shot of you and a player of your choice
    -5 Comments on your stories
    -3 Comments on your stories
    -Recommendation of 1 of your stories
    -Recommendation of 3 of your stories
    -Two shot of you and a player of your choice
    -Promoting any of your stories in my signature
    Anything else if you come up with cool stuff lol

    Winners:
    1st place-Picks 3
    2nd place-Picks 2
    3rd place Picks 1

    Deadlines:
    Enter by December 10th
    Submit by December 20th.

    Extensions will only be granted to those of you who respond to messages and ask more than a week before the deadline. I know this falls around the holidays, but most of you are in school, so there's breaks and down time. I know life happens, but talk to me prior to the deadline because nothing is worse than holding a contest and everyone asks for extensions and you, as the contest holder, can't give them out because you too have a life and didn't plan because no one talked to you beforehand.

    Now that all that's out of hte way, Have fun with this!! Enter, do what you do and have fun!!!

    Also, on a side note: I'll start out checking this all the time, but will inevitably forget at some point lol. If you could, tag me in your request (goes to my email, so I actually know to check this)...and also, PLEASE respond to my message to confirm your choices. A lot of people do not do that and then I never ever hear from tehm again...it's kind of frustrating and makes me sad :(. We don't have to chit chat, just a confirmation that your choices are okay is great!

    Numbers that have been picked:
    8
    13
    14
    16
    18
    19

    AND THE WINNERS ARE....
    1st place- A Long December
    2nd place-Merry and Bright
    3rd place-Sleepless in San Jose

    AND I'm going to let the other entries Why am I Such a Misfit? and Playing House
    pick one too because the stories were cute and they followed the rules and turned things in on time...and I'm in a good mood for some reason lol

    So you guys can message me with your choices

    Lord... why am I doing this?

    But I think I've entered every single one of your contests so it wouldn't be right if I passed on this one, eh? Can I get 16 and 44? Don't want to start a bad trend of not entering.
