RAoK Fan Fiction Contest

Wed Jul 30, 2014, 11:16 AM by SingingFlames:iconsingingflames:




RAoK - Random Acts of Kindness.


Once, when I was just received my driver's license and still hadn't learned to keep track of my various gauges - like, say, the gas gauge - my car sat in a parking lot and refused to start. My poor car was empty, as was my wallet. A generous stranger was kind enough to purchase a tank of gas for me. When I asked how could I repay him, penniless as I was, he merely asked me, one day, to help someone else out. That RAoK experience has stayed with me throughout the years.

A RAoK can take many forms. It can be helping out without being asked or an unexpected gift. For this month's contest, let's show the love to our fellow deviants and dear ones. Write a gift fic for someone close to you. It can be another deviant (there's so many wonderful people here!) or someone offline (spread the love!). Write your fan fiction specifically for your chosen recipient.

Rules


  • You entry must be written for this contest and submitted after July 30th and before the cut off date of Aug. 21st, 11:59 PM (Pacific Time).
  • Please list out who your gift fan fiction is for somewhere in your deviation - the artist's comments or in the deviation itself.
  • You may ask your recipient for a request, if you would like, but it is not required. You may write a prompt of your own choosing, if you'd prefer.
  • One entry per deviant.
  • All entries must be fan fiction. All fandoms are welcome.
  • All entries must follow DeviantArt submission guidelines (no porn).
  • Both prose and poetry are acceptable.
  • Maximum word count: 1,000 words. No minimum word count.
  • Original characters/fan characters are acceptable, but the franchise must be recognizable.
  • Entries will be judged on creativity, originality, proper grammar use and how entertaining/engaging they are.
  • Please note Note me a link to your entry with the subject line "RAoK Fanfic Contest" before the deadline.
  • Link this contest journal somewhere in your deviation, either the deviation itself or in the artist's comments.

Prizes


  • 1st Place - 1,000 Points
  • 2nd Place - 500 Points
  • 3rd Place - 250 Points
  • All entries will be featured in the winners' announcement journal!

If you have any questions, please ask!

Excuse me but, if i have icons to suggest for DD's exactly whom do i turn my attention to?
Mainly because i feel there should be more icon artists featured for their hard work.

:iconbreakingthecircle: I would really like to get this group noticed. I have noticed more and more things on DA related to issues presented in this group. I believe this group could become a valuable tool for this site's members.

Could I ask one of you CVs that handle looking at 3D digital art for a critique in private? I'd ask in note to the member or members if they were labeled that way from the list of volunteers, but no one is labeled that way :(.

Hello! I wanted to suggest a pixel art deviation, but it seems the volunteer for the pixel arts category was active 9 weeks ago ;_; What do I do?

To the CVs that pick Daily Deviants. I've been forming a guide for helping people know what to submit for DDs, formulated from observation.
Artisan Craft, Fan Art, and Photography I've been able to pin down pretty well for this guide.
Could you help fill in the gap of the other categories? This will stop submissions from having false hope, and telling artists whose art they should be looking to submit to you.

Months ago I was told (and I sill consider this flawed logic) when choosing the category of one's art upon submission. That the examples shown of art for the category, popular pieces are shown because of the hit count, that the artists who made them,  know how to correctly categorize their art. I thought this was bad yesterday when by mistake but quickly correcting I submitted my digital drawing fan art to the wrong category to digital comic fan art. Just digital fan art paintings were being used as DA's fine examples to the category (comic). Neither one had the most remote look that they were comic art. No captions, word bubbles, thought bubbles, panels, sequential art, ....  Nothing that made them fit, get the point? Now today I check out an example of DA's finest of the day. A DD under "Digital Art / Drawings & Paintings / Space Art", but in truth is a digital comic. Fan art? I don't know. What I do know is it's not Space Art by any means. Yes, I could report the work being misplaced but my reports never get reviewed.
