Poll regarding future competitions

Hello everyone!

After some discussion with various people, I’ve decided to rethink how often I hold my competitions and put up a poll for it.

https://www.strawpoll.me/16718462

The length between the last two competitions was slightly longer than I had originally intended due to going on holidays, but I’m interested to know what people would like. The next competition will be held in late January/ early February sometime, but moving forward from there I can change the length between them based on the results of the poll.

As always, feel free to send me any suggestions you might have for the competitions in general either in the comments on this post or in the Discord.

Speed writing event coming up!

Heya guys,

Another event is happening. Thought you would be up for some speed writing. I am quite excited.

Time and place is:

Saturday, 27th of October; 20-22h GMT+1

Information on the topic will then be provided on the spot. And as you know it, a timeping will be in chat as well, just to keep you on your toes.

The entries will then be collected and put up for a vote on the website, with a 1 week time frame.

To spice it up more; anyone who has entered or will enter a Halloween event entry until Saturday will have 2 points, instead of 1,  for the voting.

Small prices between 5-20 bucks will be handed out in either 1-3 or 1-5 spots, depending on the amount of participants.

For any questions, do not hesitate to poke me, Nella, or Snow in discord.

Looking forward to Saturday.

 

Mouse/Rat Girl Competition Results!

I guess it’s about time I do the results for this thing eh? It’s been a fun ride this time around, the total number of submissions between both sides is the same but we received a lot more art than last time! Speaking of which, let’s begin with that shall we:

untitled, by Matilda
Hinefight, by Axem
Untitled, by Losenis
The Light in the Darkness, by Ehrrr
Untitled, by Arch
Untitled, by Vada

Click on the images to see the full size, uploaded them as thumbnails because we got so many this time

And now for the writing, we did have two late submissions which I still accepted due to exonerating circumstance. Here they are:

Losenis, Prey and Predator – http://touchfluffytail.org/?story=prey-and-predator
Nellarella, Fate and Revenge – https://pastebin.com/r9Swa8j3
Tachaerus, Light in the Darkness – http://touchfluffytail.org/?story=light-in-the-darkness-2
Magic Sam, Mat Patting Ann – https://pastebin.com/D3axAbV4
Grub0830, Containment Breach – https://pastebin.com/dnUyP22v


Judging was done for both categories by 4 Judges (TwoHeavens, AnonMD, Carthois and Myself).

Scoring was done slightly differently this time around, all art and stories were given a rank by each judge from 1 to 5 for writing and 1-6 for art with the lower number being better, then the sum of score for each piece was taken to determine overall rank. Ties would be broken by comparing average score, then unanimous judge decision if necessary but neither of these came up.

Art

1st Place – Ehrrr (7 points)
2nd Place – Matilda ( 8 Points)
3rd Place – Axem (12 points)

Vada (13 points)
Arch ( 20 points)
Lose ( 24 points)

Writing

1st Place – Grub (6 points)
2nd Place – Tachaerus (10 Points)
3rd Place – Losenis (12 points)

Magic Sam (15 points)
Nellarella (17 points)

The judges were all asked to provide at least some feedback this time so please feel free to contact any of us for such. (tl note: asked means straight up told to)


Winners will be contacted shortly for prize distribution.

Thank you everyone who participated in my second competition! To be honest, I wasn’t sure I was going to garner much interest in mice and rats but I had to try anyway because I like them and they are cute and we need more stories and art for them. Not to mention our writers made some very interesting choices to fulfill the maid requirement including a couple I hadn’t even considered myself, which was nice. I want these competitions to be fun for everyone to join in on and test themselves out with ideas, plots and characters they might not normally try.

I’d also like to thank Losenis for being the first participant to take advantage of being able to compete in both sides of the competition. (Your art’s improving a ton! Keep it up!)

I feel like things went a bit more smoothly this time around, that said I’ve already got ideas in mind on how to make the next competition even more greater. But if you have any suggestions please feel free to send them to me. 

Cook your Halloween

Hey guys,

Halloween is around the corner, again.

Some of you might still remember our pumpkin carving contest, which had some very interesting results. To shake it up a bit this year, I want you to cook, bake or set up things in a Halloween theme.

Cook your Grandmas pumpkin soup, carve a pumpkin or do anything that is Halloween themed and send it in. Anything you hand in should be somehow marked to be yours. Like you sign art with your signature. 

For example: A picture of a delicious pumpkin feast should have some kind of note in it with your name.

 

In this case, my R2D2 coffeemug,

visibly mine.

 

Trick or Treat

You treat everyone with a nice entry, and we will reward you. 

Your vote in the upcoming Christmas event will not count as 1, but as 5.

Possible entries:

  • Cooking
  • Baking
  • Costumes
  • Crafts

Deadline

It is midnight of 31st of October, EU time.

Please hand in your entry via discord in a PM to me, Nella. 

If you should have any questions please feel free to ask me in discord, or ask Snow if I should be unresponsive. 

A full collage of every entry will then be meshed together in the beginning of November.

I am looking forward to many amazing ideas and entries.

Let’s get to it!
