The object of the contest is to write a one-shot piece of fanfiction describing what you think Equestria Girls will (or should!) be like! And, remember: anything goes! Do you want their high school to be haunted? Go ahead! Do you want to flip their genders? That’s fine too! Do you want them to secretly be robot pilots that fight eldritch horrors in their spare time? WHY NOT? As long as the story is reasonably self-contained and meets the minimum word count, as well as the content conditions outlined below, anything will be accepted!
See below for details on prizes and other conditions!
Prompt: Equestria Girls one-shot! What do you see in the future for our ponies-turned-humans?
Minimum Word Count: 2000 words
First prize gets first pick from the prize list below, and will be read on-stream in the voice of one Morgan Freeman (substitute)!
Second prize gets second pick, and a review spotlight on the above stream.
Third prize gets the leftovers, and a review spotlight on the above stream.
The prize list is as follows:
- One (1) Steam game, under 10 USD, courtesy of Reikim
- An artistic commission of your choice, courtesy of the wonderful and talented Chobibi
- Any line you want (and we mean /any/ line) said in the voice of your favourite pony, courtesy of the absurdly-connected Scoot-Scootaloo
Rules and Content Conditions - No rule 34. Period. There’s a difference between sex as a plot point and sex as a plot, and believe us, we know the difference.
No excessive gore. See the above. Gore for gore’s sake is just as bad as sex for the sake of sex.
No hatefics. If you’re going to tear the premise apart, please, put some thought into it; if you’re just here to complain about the show’s existence, please, go elsewhere.
No taking existing plots and pasting them wholesale into the EG universe. That’s plagiarism, and that’s a big no-no. At least /try/ to be original about it.
Crossovers are perfectly fine, as long as the EG cast remains central.
Bronystate is an English-speaking service. That carries over into our contests. British or American dictionaries only.
Spelling and grammar will be given particular attention. A typo here or there will be overlooked; excessive errors bordering on illegibility will not. Grab a proofreader, save a sanity point.
All entries will be judged on even grounds. You will not be deducted points for using a specific scenario or theme, so long as it adheres to the guidelines given above; you will only be judged based on your skil in executing the story.
Oh good, you’re still here. So that means you’re at least vaguely interested!
Submissions will be accepted between 12 AM June 17, and 12 AM June 24. Please do your best to ensure your entry is in .doc or .docx format, and openable in Word 2010 or earlier; we’re pretty good at finding ways of making things work, but if for whatever weird reason we can’t open your entry, we can’t very well judge it! If you want to, you may also submit a link to your story on FimFic, FanFic, or whatever site floats your boat; might as well take the chance for some self-advertsement while you’re at it!
All entries should be sent to [email protected]
We look forward to your participation!
