After talking it over with some trusted advisors, I have decided to make a command decision and edit the rule: You are now allowed to edit your story up to a half-hour after posting it without permission. This is to allow formatting errors to be fixed, as it is quite understandable that they will happen [especially with the new forums making copying/pasting things a little wonky at times], without having to have a bunch of people PMing me after they post their stories. Keep in mind that you will still have to PM me if you wish to edit your story after the half-hour mark. There should be no qualms about this because if you already posted your story and would wish to edit something, you can just PM me. Main post will be updated momentarily. Posted Image

I don't know if this has already been answered, but I know it's been asked. I haven't seen a reply, but it could just be my moronic tendancies. Are we allowed to write songfics for this? Because I've been planning a Bad Apple one that could fit "An Exile's Tale".

You can write as many stories as you want, but the moment you submit one here, that is your entry.

Indeed. OmiShad, your story must be entered right when it is posted -- it would be unfair to allow you to receive replies first and then pick the story with the best reviews. Send them to a couple friends to see how they like it if you want, but if you post all of them in the SSs forum, you must choose your entry from the get-go, not after you receive replies.

So, All that Glitters and Rebirth? No, you'd have to just pick one. If the comic title was actually "part 1/part 2" then sure, but I don't think there are any like that. You can still center your story around both titles, but just make one a little more prominent and then make that your title. Posted Image

Are we allowed to do re-interpretations of actual events in canon? Like, say, re-writing a scene from one of the movies?

I'd actually have something of substance to say here, but I'm too lazy to think of anything.  >_< Er, have some BZPRPG profiles, I guess?

 

I used to help Dominus Temporis with writing MLWTB back in the day, even if I was really terrible at it.  If anyone's in contact with him, could ya help me get in touch?   :)

As long as you don't make it too alike to the original, I suppose so -- you want to base it off canon, not plagiarize. :psychotwitch:

Would I be allowed to ask in my blog, which story idea I might do, would be best?

Sure, as long as you're not posting the whole stories [outlines or just your ideas are fine].

When you say that it should stay PG-13 friendly, you mean exactly what?

I mean it should be within BZP's rules -- no explicit sex, drugs, violence, etc. If you think a scene might be too much, it probably is, but you can send it to a contest assistant or host as long as it's not too long [so just send the scene, not the whole story] to make sure. Keep in mind this is a kid's forum, and I know it's hard to do that when writing [believe me, I very, very much so wish the rules could be more lenient for writing], but we gotta stay within the rules here.Posted Image

On the rules of violence, could an exceedingly large amount of people be murdered - rather gruesomely - as long as it doesn't involve excessively gory details?

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
