Competition 7 – Australia Day

This competition was totally meant to go up yesterday, but since it was my birthday I was too busy getting drunk as shit and watching anime/playing Atelier Ryza 2 and then passed out way too early to get it done. So we get it today, a full day delayed and after the holiday it’s named after.

So anyway we’re doing an Aussie Monster Girl competition because I can. Dingo Kobolds? Lyrebird Harpies? Bunyips? Some kind of Crocodile MG? Figure something out. I have faith in you nerds.

old less art I got done because Bunyips are cute!

The competition will be a writing competition, and like all the rest will run for 30 days and end at the very convenient time of 1300 UTC so long as I’m not being worked to death or still stuck in jury duty.

Rules for Writing:

Must have some sort of Aussie MG as a major character (main character, or main love interest etc.)
Must involve someone drinking beer. (Contestants will lose points for mentioning the brand Fosters. You have been warned.)
Story must end in a “good end” (can involve suffering, but at least end with them in a good place).
No re-use of already written/published stories.
Maximum 25,000 words length.

How to Enter:
Submit your story to me via the TFT Discord preferably via PMing it to me directly. If you don’t have or want to use Discord, you can use the Contact Page on the site and in that case please make sure to mark that it’s for this competition and use a valid email address so I can get back to you.

When will the competition end:

1300 UTC February 27th 2021. Judging will go for two weeks following, with the results announced on the 13th of March.

Prizes to be won:

1st Place – $50 of gifted games on your choice of Steam or GoG
2nd Place – $30 USD of gifted games on your choice of Steam or GoG
3rd Place – $10 USD of gifted games on your choice of Steam or GoG

How the Judging will work:

Entries will be judged by a group of judges who will not be participating in the competition.

And here we go. Next time I won’t tell myself I’ll do a competition write up on a day I know I’m going to get trashed because I have a tendency to just pass the fuck out after drinking enough.

Now if the subject of the last competition was birthday present for a friend, this one is a birthday present for myself. I’ve always wanted to see more Oz-centric stories and this seems like a good way to con people into incentivize people to write about that. I’ve honestly had this one planned for a while, at least since the Angel comp.

If you want a little more context on Australia day, it’s a national holiday here that my birthday happens to fall on that marks the day the First Fleet sailed into Sydney Harbor and the white colonization of the country began. But it’s become increasingly controversial as of late since, y’know, it’s celebrates that time when Europeans came in and murdered a bunch of natives declaring it free land up for grabs. Doesn’t sit well with some people, for some reason.

i wanted to work on my birthday
but apparently I’m too expensive
2.5x holiday rates are nice though
