Challenges, at least until they attract very few entries, are great fun for authors and readers alike.
This challenge is to write a story based on the picture below.
Any picture is provided here under the doctrine of 'fair use' which is believed to apply. It is not the site's intent to infringe copyright. Copyright owners considering that this does not apply to their work should enter into dialogue with the webmaster by email [for their convenience they may use the submissions email address]. Items where copyright is asserted will either be taken down, or attribution made, at the copyright holder's choice.
Please note that the authors may chose to alter the (assumed) age of anyone in the picture. You should consider the spirit of the picture when casting your votes, not precision of literal interpretation.
The stories are as follows, displayed initially in the order received:
The following stories arrived too late for the full challenge. They have been granted a partial entry, such that the authors will receive the same 'voting feedback' as the full entrants, but they do not compete in the overall poll.
Late entries will be accepted for partial entry. The authors will receive the same 'voting feedback' as the full entrants, but they do not compete in the overall poll.
There are two ways. Each story has a survey at the foot which relates to how well you judge that it met your needs as a reader. That's probably the most useful for the authors. After that, once you have read them all, please come here and rate them all, if you like, one against the other.
|Please remember to submit each poll separately. I wish you could tick all you want in each poll and click only one 'submit', but that's not the way ot works.|
We have chosen a three week polling period. Polls open on 7 April 2016 at noon, and close at noon on 28 April 2016. Poll opening and closing is programmatic
The basic rules are simple:
The story may be a new story, an existing story, or current work in progress. It is unlikely that any stories with adult/youth themes or heavy BDSM content will be allowed, but exceptions are made. Scatology, coprophagy, or faeces play will not be accepted. Diaper fetish is, likewise, deprecated.
Stories do not need to contain or avoid sexual encounters, nor need they be gay male stories, though authors' attention is drawn to the fact that this is primarily a gay site, with a gay male majority in the audience.
All stories that are accepted for the challenge will remain the copyright of the authors, and the authors and submitters give an absolute assurance that the stories may be published here. Authors' attention is drawn to the copyright statement at the foot of every page on this site. Stories accepted into the challenge and published on the site may not subsequently be withdrawn.
By submitting a story into the challenge the submitter gives an absolute assurance that he or she has the right to submit the story, that it is their own original work (or that they have the author's permission to submit it), and that it does not break any other person's copyright. Should the submitter be in breach of any undertaking in law, the submitter agrees that the webmaster be held harmless and that any such breach is the total personal responsibility of the submitter. Anyone recognising a work as their own and submitted without their consent, or having any issues with it should register this by clicking here and emailing the webmaster, explaining their reasons in detail.
An overall results page shows all the results gathered in one place. Obviously polls have to be open for the results to show! Until polls are open it is pretty obviously a work in progress.
