It's kind of sad that part of the reason I like this contest is that I know it will be completed because Yeata has a good reputation around the forums.

Speaking from personal experience I've been scammed a lot of times from contests (art not writing) so I only ever show interest in one held by people I know to be in good standing!

It only makes sense, but I agree it's sad.

*blinks* I have a good reputation?

That's the problem with internet forums, I suppose.

Aaaah I want to do this but fear that I'll never finish anything because of my damned perfectionist brain! And I haven't paid enough attention to the plot... xP

Pick a character you like who doesn't have much character development--perhaps one from a RIG or a shop keeper who never gets any story time--and make your own story. <3

Do the members of the Kuro gang (Luca, Cordell, Ceasar, Faris, etc.) count as underdeveloped characters? They have come back into the plot in a major way and have had their own RIG in the past, but I think there are still a lot of things that can be expanded upon about them.
Also, is there any limit to the number of entries an individual can make?

I'm okay with you writing about the Kuro gang.

And I don't know, I'll have to think about it. Probably not unless I make it a rule that you only get to place once.

Compared to people who make you put in hours of work into writing a good story and then never judge or pick a winner? Yes, you do.

Or I know where to find you if too much time passes afterwards ninja . lol, I kid.

Ah! I see what you mean! I will have started Grad school by the time the judging occurs, but that's also why I am going to get two other people to help me judge. For fairness!

Yes! I love the idea for this contest, and I can't wait until the submissions begin to come in.

OMG *Foams at the mouth*

Now I need to figure out if I should enter with one I've already written or make a new one up.

Also I'm very torn, I kind of want to be a judge since well...I did go to school for this kind of crap...yes...I went to Gaia NPC contest writing school. It's very strict and hard to get into...... ninja

i'm just going to silently judge people...in my mind....XD
one of my B.A.'s is for English and I took some creative writing classes in undergrad too.
