The Worst Fanfic Ever

CONTEST CLOSED - Voting up Soon™
So a couple of months ago, I ran a forum contest called You Don't Know Avyn. Since I don't play anymore and had some left over AP, I decided that I would host monthly forum contests to give away Destroyer Packages. With the shenanigans of last month, I didn't get a chance to run an event, but things are back to normal this month, so I have some more swag to give away!

So with that in mind, for my September Forum Contest, I present~

The Worst Fanfic Ever

Fanfic

I don't like it for several reasons. Yes, even yours. I would explain why, but that would hurt your feelings. We don't want that. Since I do not like fanfic, I am not able to host a Best Fanfic Ever contest, because judging it would produce no results and bore me to tears. However, who doesn't enjoy obviously and incredibly horrible prose?! Fun for me. Fun for you. Fun for onlookers.

Examples of truly horrendous fanfic. Peter Chimera is perhaps most famous for his fanfic of Doom entitled Repercussions of Evil. Although it is no longer posted on his fanfic page, you can see a screen capture of it here. What I'm looking for are fanfics that would make Mr. Chimera look like Mark Twain. To enter into this contest, you must post a short original fanfic (I have remarkable Google-fu, so I'll know if your post is plagiarized) of epically terrible proportions. I want to see incoherent plots. Inconsistent and two dimensional characters. Horrible dialogue. Settings that make absolutely no sense. Lack of narrative. Everything that makes a story horrible, I want to see it.

That's about all there is to it. After the contest closes, I'll open voting for players to choose their favorite train wreck of Internet Age literature. After the voting is over, I will make a final decision based on the votes and my own discretion. I am weighing in my own opinion to prevent a popularity vote, someone winning simply for having the most friends.

Rules and Guidelines

  • Your fanfic must be set in the Shaiya universe.
  • Entries must be 100-500 words.
  • Some mature humor is alright, but no excessively explicit language or material such as sex, graphic violence, or illicit drugs.
  • You may edit as many times as you want before the contest closes.
  • One entry per person.
  • Anything else, just ask and I'll add it in here.

Prize Package

Not identical to a Destroyer Package, but I'm sure it won't disappoint.

  • 30 Day Continuous Resurrection Rune
  • 30 Day Prevent Item Drop
  • 30 Day Eternal Endurance
  • White Tiger Charm
  • 100x Movement Rune
  • 100x Party Summon Rune
  • 100x Teleportation Stone
  • 100x Etain Potion

CONTEST DEADLINE: September 18th at 12pm Pacific Time

Ok THONKYUO FOR YOU TIME

Mod Edit - Stickied Razz ~ Tee

Writing fanfics is going to be my new source of money. xD
And my bad writing is legendary, dare I say godly even!

I am definately going to spend hours writing several fanfics, then choose the best one. Then tweak it a little to make it even worse.
Though I won't use 'wall of text' technigue.

I am afraid I might use a bit too much excessive language, but Im sure I can find a moderator for a second opinion in exhange for a free plvl.
My bad writing skillz are going to pwn u little newbs, so i think it might be a good idea to have runner up prizes! }Very Happy
Seriously:Runner up prizes would be a nice idea. Might I suggest:

30 Day Continuous Resurrection Rune
30 Day Prevent Item Drop
30 Day Eternal Endurance
White Tiger Charm
10x Movement Rune
10x Party Summon Rune
10x Teleportation Stone
10x Etain Potion

FOR the winner.

25x Movement Rune
25x Party Summon Rune
25x Teleportation Stone
25x Etain Potion

FOR the runner up and 3rd place.

The rest of the remaining 4 times 40 Movement/tele/summon/etain pots can be distributed to all the other contestants. (by doing a drag and drop for them in the arena)

Unless off course you like the Winner gets it all type of event, but I think that might just encourage foul play.


Edit:
September 10th might be a little early for me though, but Im sure ill have a shot at next event.

*Note: to read my more serious comments select white text to make it easier to read.

That stuff by Peter Chimera is pretty bad, but either he is illiterate or he is getting cheap naff points by pretending to be illiterate.
I think the challenge would be to write bad fanfic, but still write it well (i.e. proper grammar/spelling).

I can't write to save myself, so I won't be entering the competition - but I look forward (sort of) to seeing what other people come up with Very Happy
