I am going to say this one last time - stop being lazy, and read the ENTIRE page. Just do it, it's in PLAIN LETTERING.

RULE 7: " You can either submit your story as a PMed doc-download link, or a separate topic in the group that will host this contest (The CR Society of Folklore and Story). Just PM a link. For uploading, I really like http://www.mediafire.com/. I'll take .doc format, .odt format, RTF format and PDF formatted files only. Remember, even if you submit by download link, your work will be put on display in a topic. It's public."

I'm getting enormously frustrated with this question, it's pretty plainly written.



Hm.. okay maybe you should say:

1. Write your story and save it as a MS Word file .doc file, Notebook/Notepad .rtf file, or Adobe's .pdf file.

2. Go online, Upload your file onto a place where you can retrieve it via a URL link. (such as http://www.mediafire.com/). Browse for the story, then click on 'Upload'.

3. Once that is done, you will receive a link for your story to be downloaded. (such as http://www.mediafire.com/?fmxwdrfbys5 - an old story of mine).

4. Save that link.

5. Login to Chrunchyroll then send a Private Message to Jorlwind with that link.


Alternatively you can post your story in this Forum.

1. Write your story, and copy it to a New Topic. You can also upload it and provide the link and post it in as well.

2. Title it "CrMoWri - xxinsert your title herexx" (such as CrMoWri - The Antidote to Forgiveness)

3. Make sure you highlight the use of 'chemistry'.


(eh if I misinterpret anything, then uhm please clarify ;p )

oh! I thought this thread was already linked with the CR News thread about the same contest.

Anyway.. I think I understand almost all the rules, except for that Chemistry thing, cause I wonder whether it'll affect the flow of the story when we try to emphasize on it.

@ Julia: That was great.. you've simplified it nicely. :)

So any theme is okay? I have a story that I am working on currently that has a gothic theme- sort of and would that be okay???? Is it okay that my characters don't have to be anime related???? Also my story consist of a conflict between an intellectual and a religious person - always arguing what is correct their ideologies and believes are and I have another character who is in between these two extremes.... is that alright... can swearing be allowed if it supports the context????

I believe any theme should be fine provided it does not contain explicit detail fit for adults only ;p

Gothic fiction should be great =D I love Poe, Shelly, Stevenson and du Maurier hmmm too many Victorians.. oh of course Rice!

I'm sure you don't Have to write fan fiction ;p As long as it is a story - aka characters in a plot with conflict *nods*.

As with swearing :S I don't think you should go tooo overboard.. But then again, my perspective on swearing is probably different to the mods around here lol Just as long as whatever they are arguing not contain anything racist, insult anyone personally here, etc etc (okay mods what's your reply to swearing?)

When all of Venice was in bed and sleeping, several unidentified men came together to enter a building along the canal. They took complete caution when entering it by going in at timed intervals, so as to avoid suspicion if anyone was watching. Many other men before them that day had also done the same. All of their steps and moves carefully planned out and reviewed. It was done before, many times throughout the year, but this time it was different. They were hoping that this would be this last they would ever meet in such circumstances. It was nerve wrecking and hard work for these men, for most of them were old.
When the men were all finally seated in the dark and sound proofed room, they all bowed their heads and waited for their master to speak; the person who was behind it all, and the person who had called them.
“Did you men arrive safely?” A woman’s voice spoke from behind the screen at the end of the room. It was full of authority and was spoken calmly, as if they were all there for tea, instead of treason.
“Yes ma’am.” The men replied in unison. There was much fear in their voices, as there was every time they met, for if they were to ever be caught, it would be the end of their lives.
“Good. Now…are the preparations ready?”
“All my men are ready for the New Year; we have made sure that they keep shut as you have said.” The man’s face who spoken was concealed by his long brimmed hat, but it could clearly be seen that he was rich and young, “All we need now are the Reds, ma’am.”
“Ha…so 600,000 was enough, as expected of paupers.” The woman suddenly stopped laughing, “Bring them out.”
A servant appeared from behind the screen and produced a wooden box. It was not all too big, and apparently pretty heavy.
“Open it.” Said the woman. The servant opened the top with some struggle, and plopped all of its contents onto the table.
“Will this be enough?”
“Plenty, ma’am.” The man replied.
“Make it flawless my men. Oh, and one more thing…it was suicide.”
The next day the palace was in a _(hurry to prepare??)_ for the New Year celebrations. Decorations were being put up, food was being made, and all was abuzz. The prince was in a great mood and decided to oversee all the preparations. It was always delightful to have some chaos in the stiff atmosphere of the palace.
As he was watching, he noticed that one of the men who were bringing in the supplies was having great trouble. Because the prince was a compassionate one, he ran over to help him, taking the wooden box onto his own shoulder. The startled old man gasped and begged the Prince for forgiveness.
The prince then laughed, “What have you done wrong my man besides toil for the King? Rest, I will do it for you.”
The man tried to resist, but was then silenced by the prince. Everyone stopped to watch their prince work among them, and was shocked that he would help a poor man.
In response to them, the prince laughed and said, “So what is in this box that is ailing that poor man?”
The overseer, who was to look after the items that were to be brought into the palace, spoke up. “They are fireworks, your highness. Called “Reds”, they’re new and bigger and brighter, for the festival tonight sire.”
“Ah, new fireworks you say?” The prince smiled, “Well, I can’t wait to see them.”
Right then, a servant came running toward the prince.
“It is almost time, your highness must prepare for tonight.”
The prince nodded, “Let us go then.”
When the sun finally went down, all the people of Venice were celebrating and all gathered to watch the entertainers hired by the king. There was much food, and lots of drinks. Everyone was full and satisfied, and so the king was happy.
Finally when the dances were over, it was time for the fireworks. It all happened very fast. After several huge fireworks, all attention was diverted to the sky. Then suddenly one went straight for the king. One of the servants screamed as more fireworks came toward the place where the king was sitting. The people finally realized that their king was attacked and all ran for it. Screaming and havoc was everywhere. Tables were overturned and glasses were smashed. Everyone was trying to get out and run.
Finally, the king was taken to the Royal hospital in critical condition and the courtyards were abandoned.
“What happened?” demanded the prince.
“All the investigators think the same, this was no accident. Forgive me for saying this, your highness, but this was all done on purpose.”
The prince clenched his fists, “Find the man who did this!”
The investigator shook his head, “We have sire…but…he is dead. Suicide…” Suddenly he dropped to his knees, “Please forgive me! I deserve to die!”
The Prince shook his head, “None of that! Now get up and tell me, have you found anything?”
The investigator rose and fumbled with his pockets, “We have found this on his body, and we are currently searching his home.”
As he said that, a man on a horse came running toward the two and produced a letter. The man handed it to the investigator. He investigator collapsed and the prince took the note. It was…TO BE CONTINUED….

let me clarify--

so this means that chemistry is, basically, the theme of the contest? or am i missing something here?

also, why exactly do we need to highlight mention of any chemistry-related stuff?

No, it's not a theme, it's a safety key to help ensure the work is genuinely yours and not stolen.

250 words a page? Whaaaat? Wow, I wish that was the case. o_O I'm pretty sure it's about 700-1000 words, depending on spacing.

Yeah, sorry about that o.o I realized that yesterday, but got too lazy to fix it. I was thinking double spaced. I would like 1.5 spacing, which should work out at 500 words a page. I'll change it tonight, and up the limit.
