Summer Sizzler Challenges - FINAL (EXTENDED) DEADLINE
« on: June 29, 2010, 19:45:31 PM »
Summer Sizzler Challenges

It's been done to death all across the board and throughout the years, but never on Raising Hell. So this summer, we're issuing two of our very own HEAT challenges.

(1) Who Says Censored Means Boring??

A Heat challenge for all ages!

Heat fics are fun. They shouldn't be inaccessible to people who prefer not to read smut or mature fic. They tend to be R or NC17 rated, which narrows the readership audience by quite a bit, something we've been trying to avoid on Raising Hell.

So, we've decided to try something different. We are challenging our writers (that means lurkers with potential, too!) to write a story or scene in which there is Porn Without Porn. In other words, no nudity, no physical entanglements, no coarse language. Your story should be sexy, wonderful and 'feel good' without compromising  anyone's delicate sensibilities!

Requirements:
Porn Without Porn!
Maximum rating - PG13
Minimum word count - 250


(2) Heat With A Twist

There is only one requirement: there must be a...kink - of sorts. Be it an unlikely pairing, a less-than-favorable location, situation, an inopportune moment, exhibitionism, language barriers, etc. No straight-forward encounters, please! Let your imaginations run wild with this one! :)

This challenge is intended to generate fics rated R or NC-17 (for a change) in order to give any writers possessing smut tendencies a chance to shine. However, this does not mean that submissions of a lower rating/without mature content are not allowed. As long as your story fits the requirement noted above, you are welcome to take part! (We will return to our PG13 as a maximum rating for prompts and challenge at summer's end.)


The challenges will be polled separately with a winner and runner-up each.

Story submissions deadline is August 21st 2010 @ 18:59 EST (23:59pm GMT +1/UK Standard Time)


Same submission rules apply (see prompt challenge rules on RH). Thanks for your interest and happy writing!

Okay, listen up!

Story submissions deadline has been extended to August 21st 2010 @ 18:59 EST (23:59pm GMT +1/UK Standard Time)

Hopefully this will give the needed extra time for the few laggers-behind (I know of at least 3) to get their stories finished.

Good luck and happy writing!
