No, it's nothing to do with the Large Hadron Collider that may or may not either expose the building blocks of the universe in the name of SCIENCE, create a black hole that annihilates the Earth and most of the Solar System or at least Switzerland, or may even cause a resonance cascade and the eventual Universal Union invasion and conquest of our planet in under seven hours (And I for one welcome our new benefactors) but something of far greater importance. The end of one of our two CoNtests running right now is near.

To be exact, it's the Fanart competition where the end is nigh. That contest ends at the end of this month and is run to the theme of your favorite Square-Enix characters as if they were on holiday, or vacation for people in countries that upgraded the English language to Eng 2.0. Those of you with the ability to draw, doodle, sketch, and whatever else it is you talented arty types do to make little pretty pictures only have until the end of the month, about three weeks. To see the rules and how to submit, simply follow the link above. Or the one below if you want to live life on the edge.

For those of you with an infinite number of Shakespeares attempting to compile the complete works of Monkeys (Is this right? -Editor) and enter the Fanfic CoNTest, you've got quite a bit more time, a whole month more, and more flexibility with the three categories in that longer contest, but you're free to write a story about your favourite characters at the beach if you like. It could be General or Comedy. Or from FF7 maybe even Scene Selection thanks to Costa Del Sol.

So, in summary, time is running out on the CoNtests to enter, and possibly also for your freedom of expression for Final Fantasy Fanwork Fantasticness should the last LHC scenario occur as I think the... Combine are fans of Dragon Quest more than FF. Remember, you have until September 30th for Fanart, October 31st for Fanfics, and about two minutes for the kettle to boil unless you've got a really good kettle.

If you have any questions about the Fanart rules and submission, email your question to fanart@cavesofnarshe.com. For Fanfic queries, email a question along to fanfics@cavesofnarshe.com or PM Del S, whoever he is, on the forums, whatever they are. Alternatively, for a faster response to questions on either contest, simply pop into chat and someone there should help you.

And here I am not able to draw scenery for sh*t. How do you do a vacation piece without a good background?

I am curious as to why they would allow more than one entry in the fanfic category. Technically, I could (though I'm definitely not going to) write a dozen fics and have a good chance of winning just on numbers alone. (Fortunately I'm not that good. It took me like a week-ish to finish my first entry.) Is the fanfic contest turning out to be unpopular or something?

Also, I lol every time I read 'CoNtest'. That is the best/worst pun ever.

That rule was set out well before we had any idea what the entries would look like. And if you want to write a dozen fanfics, and they all turn out to be prize-worthy, then you get what you're paying for, don't you?

If this was the question you'd aimed to ask in chat, well, if you'd waited another fifteen seconds there were several people active. wink.gif

Ooops. >> Well, actually I was being all paranoid that nobody got my email and my fic would be eaten in cyberspace, but there was that too. Sorry about earlier, I was in a hurry. XD

...on that note, do you send CoNfirmation emails? (lol) I mean, my fic didn't acually get chewed up in cyberspace, did it?

Yes, your entry was recieved. If anyone wants to make sure a fanfic entry they sent is in, they can PM me to get confirmation it got there.

Ok! Submission sent! biggrin.gif

I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's entries. Considering some of the artwork that's already there, I bet we'll see some great stuff.

And speaking of the Large Hadron Collider, have you seen the Large Hadron Rap? It's very informative and cheezy. The CERN guys liked it so much they let them actually make the video inside the facility.

And yeah, a black hole would really suck (lol), but from what I hear, they seem to be less expectant of one now than before. Too bad the thing broke down before they could even smash anything interesting. Oh well, I guess we'll just have to postpone the end of the world until February or so when they get it running again. tongue.gif

Anywaaayzzz, thanks for the contest, and props for mentioning the LHC! I better go back to studying for my physics test now.
