McSars storytime contest: WINNERS ANNOUNCED

96 Human Warrior

CONTEST CLOSED, EVERYONE GO HOME.

I'm going to have a contest, sponsored by me, because I can.

Targeted participants are everyone in the main guilds I'm in - Blood of Lordaeron and Salvation - and anyone who is friends with me on RID/battletags as of now - and also my Pathfinder gaming pals. However, anyone can try for a prize if they really think they have the chops. I'll be judging based on my feels(see below).

To win this contest, you have to write a story about McSars. It can be any kind of story, from any perspective or any point in the timeline. Stories can be posted in this thread, or sent via email to mcsars@gmail.com (I will accept racy stories).

What are the prizes, you ask? The prizes are video games gifted via Steam. The better you place, the higher value the game.

First: $30

Second: $20

Third: $10

Canon Award: $20

Encouragement award: Some cheapass indie/ultra discounted game.

Story Parameters
There are no limits to how many characters the story can have. It can be in first or third person. McSars can be doing pretty much anything you like.

How do I win?
If you want to win, you will make me have feels. I need to have a feel of some kind or the story is just not going to do it for me. The feel can be any kind - sadness, sorrow, a sense of '!@#$ yeah' or even hilarity - yes, you can do a silly/funny story too.

Inspiration: Here are a bunch of stories about McSars to give you some help.

What is the Canon Award?
The 'Canon Award' goes to the person who I decide writes a story that I think will be excellent canon for McSars. You get the $20 on top of any other prize you might have (so if you get 1st you could get a $50 game, for example). You also may get this award without winning any of the other prizes. Alternatively, no one may get this award. You must also agree to let me use this as part of McSars' canon.

What is the Encouragement award?
This is the one award that ANYONE could win. That's all I'll say about it.

DEADLINE/JUDGING: 25th December

Just an unnecessary bump before bed. If anyone is wondering why I am doing this out of the blue it is for selfish reasons. Life sucks right now, and doing this is a good distraction. In addition, I think it is at the very least a good writing exercise, so I guess it's not entirely selfish.

How convenient. I was just going to see if you minded me using your character in one of my stories.

Not at all! But remember that for the purposes of this contest, the story in question has to be able to be considered "about McSars", something to keep in mind. Basically, if I read it and I can think "that was a story about McSars" then it is legit like the Light.

Thank you. Perhaps I'll run a similar contest in a few months, if this one goes well.

I don't think it would be fair for either you or the others, so this time I'm going to have to say no. I'M SORRY MAN. But that's not a bad idea, so next time I'll definitely include it as a separate category.

I can guarantee you that my submission will include hugging and staring deeply into the eyes of a quivering lover.

I am making note of every word Lito might like.

Then I am going to whisper them into her ear.

You'll be mine.
