Hey, even if you could just read a story and determine whether it was well-written in terms of spelling, grammar, and sentence structure, that would probably be enough, at least in my opinion.  It'd be a great help.

Well I'll be mostly judging genral literary merit and comedic qualities for the most part while I imagin Dim can judge especially "Fan-Fictionality"

But we'll see once I talk to her :)


EDIT: Ah and there she is!

Actually he used to play with Journey.  Yes, I'm a geek for knowing that. 

Here's the proof!

(Yes, he's with Journey in this video)

I guess this is one of those Youtube clips that won't play away from Youtube.com.  It's the video for "I'll Be Alright Without You" from the Raised On Radio album.  Randy Jackson was a member of Journey during that time and is seen in that video.

That's right! When I wrote it I was unsure which one it was and eventually I just  picked one (the wrong one).:)

i will probably participate, but I would like to note that my true talent lies in erotica  >:D

that being said, other than shipper/slasher, i won't stick to a genre.

What I'd like to see regarding rule is:

~A specified miniumum/maximum length
~Certain elements that must be included
~Whether it should be "good" or intentionally bad.


Are we getting any answers on those?

Oh yes, still banging out the details.

Actually I have most of them, but the prizes and lenght of competition is still up in the air.

Finally! I can write that Homeboys from Outer Space meets Misfits of Science fan-fic I've always wanted to do!

Just kidding (or am I?). I'd love to participate.

Ok so here be the Rules:

The story should be a minimum of 300 words long, but not multi chapter epics.
It should involve MST3K characters (Mike, Joel The Bots et al)
It can involve characters from MSTed films, let's see how skillfully you all can do that.
It must be of a Shipper or Slash nature but for the sake of people reading the forum, please try to keep ti to a PG13 rating.
We will have two prizes of a $5 gift certificate (at least in this first competition) one for the best straight (in the sense of seriously written) Fan-Fic a one for the best intentionaly Bad one.

I think we'll give you a month to submit entries so the closing date will be the 8th of July at say 5pm EST.

Please pm the entries to the three judges : TripeHoundRedux, Dim of the Yard and Jacob T. Caboose. You can use this thread to chit-chat about the competition and let us know when you've sent in your entry (just in case we miss it say).

Any other questions I've not covered?

Yeah but I could give Fortis a gift certificate anyway. However I really wanted there to be some sort of competition.

I'll have a think and maybe we can do this again with a better rubric  :-\

Ah yes, well I'm not looking to win anything, I just want people to read my funny story...Seriously though, I'll be back soon with it, I'm writing it now...it will be rough since I'm writing it in just a few hours...but I think you will enjoy it.
