Aloha! Welcome to the fan fiction events of the DDOlympics! I will use this thread to outline the necessary information for all three events in this category, to not clutter the forums.

Fan Fic: Short-Form

Rules

Competitors are to write a short story between 6,000 and 16,000 characters. No more than 1,000 characters of these stories can be something other than original content (e.g. quotes of other works). Competitors may write about whatever they like, as long as it is neither plagiarized or in violation of the TOS.

All stories should be completed and submitted to me by noon, EST, on September 8th; this gives you 25 days to complete your work. You must do this work alone (not with a teammate or outside help). You may write this story on DDO (in the Entertainment section of the forums) or on an outside platform such as a google doc. However, if I, or the judges, cannot access the work, it cannot be judged and will receive a score of zero. I would prefer the work to be publicly accessible, but this is not required.

Judges will be anonymous, and their will be three judges. Each judge will be able to assign a story up to 10 points, and can use quarterly decimals (.25, .50 or .75) in their scoring. If there is a tie in the scores, first, the story receiving the single highest score from any one judge will be preferred; then, if that fails, the story with the lowest single score from any one judge will lose out; and then, if neither of those two methods work, I will judge and cast a tiebraking vote. Judges will be encouraged to factor in things like creativity, grammar, plot development, character depth, readability, and likeability, though there is no specific rubric.

Fan Fic: Long-Form

Rules

Competitors are to write a short story between 17,000 and 32,000 characters. No more than 1,000 characters of these stories can be something other than original content (e.g. quotes of other works). The story must be organized into at least two discrete segments (e.g. chapters, parts, sections, episodes, books, etc.). Competitors may write about whatever they like, as long as it is neither plagiarized or in violation of the TOS.

All stories should be completed and submitted to me by noon, EST, on September 13th; this gives you 1 month to complete your work. You must do this work alone (not with a teammate or outside help). You may write this story on DDO (in the Entertainment section of the forums) or on an outside platform such as a google doc. However, if I, or the judges, cannot access the work, it cannot be judged and will receive a score of zero. I would prefer the work to be publicly accessible, but this is not required.

Judges will be anonymous, and their will be three judges. Each story would get three scores: one for each segment, and one for the overall story, to reflect both the efforts of each chapter and the success of the overarching plot. Judges can assign each segment up to 10 points, and the overall story up to an additional 20. Judges can use quarterly decimals (.25, .50 or .75) in their scoring. If there is a tie in the scores, first, the story with the segment earning the highest total score will be preferred; then, if that fails, the story with the segment earning the lowest total score will lose out; and then, if neither of those two methods work, I will judge and cast a tiebraking vote. Judges will be encouraged to factor in things like creativity, grammar, plot development, character depth, readability, and likeability, though there is no specific rubric.

Fan Fic: Team Story

Rules

Teams are to write a short story between 12,000 and 24,000 characters. No more than 1,000 characters of these stories can be something other than original content (e.g. quotes of other works). The story may be organized into at least two discrete segments, though that is not required. Story segments will not be scored individually; there will only be one score per story. Competitors may write about whatever they like, as long as it is neither plagiarized or in violation of the TOS.

All stories should be completed and submitted to me by noon, EST, on September 18th; this gives you 35 days to complete your work. You must work as a team; if your teammate is not working with you, you must inform me. You may write this story on DDO (in the Entertainment section of the forums) or on an outside platform such as a google doc. However, if I, or the judges, cannot access the work, it cannot be judged and will receive a score of zero. I would prefer the work to be publicly accessible, but this is not required.

Judges will be anonymous, and their will be three judges. Each judge will be able to assign a story up to 10 points, and can use quarterly decimals (.25, .50 or .75) in their scoring. If there is a tie in the scores, first, the story receiving the single highest score from any one judge will be preferred; then, if that fails, the story with the lowest single score from any one judge will lose out; and then, if neither of those two methods work, I will judge and cast a tiebraking vote.

For the long-form story event, do not make more than two segments/chapters/episodes in your story. Judges will only score two.

Is it okay for us to write more than two segments for the team fan fic?

Sure, as long as you do not exceed the character limits.

Due to some circumstances (such as my inability to judge time... you were right all along), I'll submit before noon Wednesday. I accept any penalties (I really, really wanna sleep, lol).

WEAK.

I've been on a 0-3 hour sleep schedule on nights before I have to be at school. My energy levels have been pretty solid.

You have 2 days remaining to post your team stories.

I will accept late submissions in all fan fic categories until the 20th. Keep in mind, however, that a late submission may reflect poorly on your work and may result in point deductions.
