Hello there everyone! Thank you for expressing interest in doing this contest! :) Anyway! It’s time to throw another hypnosis story contest! :D
There will be only one division this time, so stories can be either adult or clean.
Unlike last time we have a set few artists that will be drawing prizes for the contest (one piece per artist). So first place would get first choice, second place would get second choice… all the way down to the runner up who would get a piece drawn by the available artist.
This time a few artists provide a couple of choices in what you get.
DoDeDo – A choice of a deluxe one character piece (Deluxe comes with the arist drawing four alternate sketches and then colouring the one of your choice) or a budget two character piece (Artist will only provide one sketch to be coloured with only one major change. Suggestions about poses cannot be as specific as the deluxe)
Twinkle-sez – One character coloured piece with simple background or two character inked piece with simple background.
Spelunker Salvador – Two character inked piece or 1 character coloured piece- May or may not include background, information will be provided after contest has ended.
Sarovak – Two character piece with simple background (Will also be coloured)
Headvoices – Two character inked piece or 1 character coloured piece- Examples can be found on his FA account, www.furaffinity.net/user/headvoices .
Nokemy – Two character coloured piece.
Tokifuji – Black and White Inked and toned comic with up to three characters. (You can add more characters to this for 25USD)
-Hypnotism is a required main subject and must be used within story.
-The subject or one of the subjects must be a dragon, scaly, dinosaur, avian, bat, equine, bovine, orc, foodog. (since they sorta count as draconic) of any gender. (In other words, at least one of those species should be getting hypnotized. There is no set gender so feel free to write about a female dragon,, male dragon, male dinosaur, herm avian/gryphon, etc.)
-. A maximum limit will not be imposed.. It's highly advised you develop the story and inductions as you are able to.
-There is no set sexual orientation or genders for any characters (as mentioned above). So you are free to write a gay, lesbian, bisexual, hetero story. You will not be penalized or rewarded (given extra credit) for choosing any orientation over the other in either category.
-Unlike last year, there will not be separate divisions. There’ll only be one division. So feel free to write either an adult or clean story.
-Stories created before the day this journal was implemented do not count. Unless the story was written specifically for this contest and someone notified me before I officially announced the contest.
-You may write in any style you wish, be it first person, third person, etc.
-Again, if you win, any rules the artists already have in place about commissions still apply. So if you want something that the artist wouldn’t otherwise draw for an actual commission you’ll hafta think up something else.
Made a list of the species so that people could see them in an orderly fashion. One of the characters that is getting HYPNOTIZED must be one of these listed species:
Any sort of scaly.
Dragon (Gargoyles fall under this clause... they seem to be fairly draconic!)
Foodog/Fudog (I blame Airu)
Orc (Hey, sometimes they can be cute…ish!)
Not Allowed Fetishes
-A list of fetishes that are not allowed in the story:
-Copious Gore (A bit of bleeding/biting is alright, but when you start gettin' into wounds, lacerations, etc, that's where the line is drawn.)
-Death/Undeath – I fear undead! D:
-Watersports (Urination/Defectation, etc.)
-Extreme/True Vore – (Vore that ends in excrements or death.)
-More may be added when the need arises.
The deadline for the contest will be December15th, with judging taking place for the next week or two following this. Any entries after December 15th will be disregarded unless specific arrangements are made. (Though this will be by a case-by-case basis and you’ll need to contact me if you think you may go a day or two over the deadline). The deadline may or may not be pushed back depending on the number of people needing such.
Most of the judging will be done by me, but I may employ other judges to help in reviewing stories and helping to come to decision.. Stories will be judged by the use of hypnosis, grammar, pacing, story development, use of description, and a few others.
-While you may post your stories on your page please send a copy of the story to my e-mail: email@example.com That way I can make sure I have a copy of your story. As well each entrant is allowed to submit a maximum of two stories.
- A limit of two stories per person.
-You are free to use one of your characters in your story but be aware I may not know anything about your character. It would be wise to expand on them a bit and not presume I'll go through all of your references to understand your character. (Takes a lot of time if there will be a lot of submissions! :/)
-Fanfiction is allowed if you feel more secure in that area, but one of the characters getting hypnotized still must fall under the set criteria of the species list.
-Please do not use any of my characters in a story (you can refer to them offhand, but having them as a subject or hypnotist is not allowed).
-You are free to use whatever method of hypnosis or mind control that you wish for the contest, be it classical, ocular, magical, drug-induced, brainwashing, or any others that you might create yourself.
-Generally try to write a story as long as you wish, if you feel you can expand more on the story, characters, hypnotic induction, or certain scenes more and that it'd improve the story altogether, then do so. There is no set limit on a story’s length.
-As /I said each person is limited to up to two story entries.
-With TF I require the end transformation to be one of the species…. But the original species can be one that isn’t listed. So long as they end up transformed as one of the listed species (this only applies if the story will involve TF)
-Remember, one of the requirements is that one of the characters getting hypnotized has to be from the provided species list. I need to remind people since last time there were four entries that had to be disregarded because they did not involve one of the listed species getting hypnotized.
If you have any questions feel free to comment or note me. I hope you all enjoy and I'll look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. :) This semester is only a semi-busy one (I’m a science major so most of my work comes from studies… though I’m doing labwork on the side at a nearby medical school for payment and the chance to put the stuff on my resume)
