ATTENTION ALL FAN FICTION AUTHORS

Post by p5ychic » Sat 9th Feb 2008

Fangathering is hosting its first Artemis Fowl Elseworlds FanFiction contest! For those of you who don't know, Elseworlds is a genre of "What If?" Fiction. You start with a what if question, and write from there. For example, "What if Harry Potter's parents had lived?" That kind of story.

So. Here are the rules:
1- It has to be Artemis Fowl fanficion
2- It can't be a crossover story (No "What if Artemis met Dracula?" or anything like that)
3- It has to be appropriate. Nothing you wouldn't want a child to read.
4- It has to be at least 700 words
5- Most importantly, the world it takes place in has to be different. (No "What if Holly's hair were brown instead of red?")
6- It shouldn't just be a non-canon sequel to the books. (Something like "What if this happened differently?")

There is a prize! The winner of the contest will have their story put in an "Award Winning" Category on the FanFiction archive, they will have their story praised in the Haven Herald, and they will receive either a copy of Airman, or a pre-order of Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox (We haven't decided yet :D)

Please submit your entries to the FanFiction Archive, and send me (P5YCHIC) the link in a PM.

Entries must be submitted by March 15, 2008 (St. Patrick's Day!)

hey, what do you mean by no crossover? If it's harry and Artemis? Or Supernatural and Artemis? I'm confused.... What do you mean?

No characters from other stories, you can't have artemis go to Hogwarts, or have artemis meet James bond or anything. It has to be only AF.

I wrote a story, it's Artemis and my own character, Jamie Yasuni who's a vampire. Can I nominate that?

What's the "what if" question?

If it's a what-if, (not "What if artemis met this person," more like "What if (something) happened differently?") Just post it on the Fanfiction Archive and send it to me via PM. Or, you could post it on the fanfiction board and I can upload it onto the archive with your permission.

Hm... this could actually be fun... I'll go for it! :D

It's alright if it's just a one-shot, right, as long as it's more than 700 words?

One-shots are fine.

In fact, I encourage them. It would make it harder to judge if I were reading a whole series.
