    @Itssupereffective ff- Ok I like your ideas. So we basically forget about the rating restriction.
    I think we should keep the one-shot idea but forget the word limit or at least make it so that going
    over the limit set isn't a bad thing

    @wubbzy- I think that it will be up to the other judges personally I think that there should only be a max not a min.

    Alright what about 5k max? Anything longer than that defeats the purpose of a one shot.

    Sounds reasonable enough to me.

    Personally, I'm doing a one-shot about how I would've made "Jirachi Wish Maker". Done to death, I know, but I figure I'll give it a shot.

    The theme is wishes, so the fic must be about wishes, or revolve around wishes and advanceshipping

    I'll post the rules that we have thus far:

    1) Entries should relate to the theme (wishes) in some way
    2) The entries must be one-shots, no more than 5k words
    3) 1 entry per contestant
    4) Deadline for entries May 29

    Although, I think we could loosen up a bit with the 5K thing. I mean, a couple hundred above 5K should be alright.

    Nope because that defeats the purpose of a one shot if it goes too long, I would rather have it be 3k at most but I fell that 5k should be more than enough.

    You know beastmode I'm starting to agree with you with what you were really angry about. And I just realized that I actually had registered Itssupereffective but forgot I did. But anyway like I said in my last post 5k nothing more.

    Not really. I've read some that go above 10K, and most I've read already go far above 5K. But whatever floats your boat.

    Also, just to take some time away from the competition, I'll ask a new question.

    Do you have a personal favorite author that you take inspiration from that writes Advanceshipping fanfics?

    Most of you should already know mine; definitely CyberCubed, the author of "Two of a Kind." Besides "A Day Inside May" (google it), all of her works are just superb.

    Well I've also seen a 285k one shot so just because someone does it doesn't make it right. And after a one shot goes over 5k in my opinion it's basically a story that probably should have been a two shot or something more. But I have seen some one shots that went over 5k that just made perfect sense and were amazing like Starcrossed so I see where you're coming from.

    285K sounds a bit... excessive. That's about the sum of words in a lot of complete chaptered fics. Yeah, I definitely see your point of view as well, because they can get to be a bit long and drawn out.

    I'd also like to state that I probably won't be very active here, as I'll be working on my one-shot, Adaptation, and re-reading Two of a Kind for the seventh time. (Yes, I've counted. That's how good that story is, folks.)
