It seemed like a great idea in the "Member's Clubhouse", so we went ahead with it!

Welcome to the next Fanfiction Contest! Yaaaaay!

I brought up the idea of "Mottos" in the Member's Clubhouse after watching too much Game of Thrones. So at Dragonwish's suggestion (and the support behind it), it seemed like an excellent idea for a Fanfiction Contest.

So, we'll call it:

Fanfiction Contest: As the Saying Goes

Let's assume that your character has a motto, saying, slogan or catchphrase. I'm working off of the various Houses/Clans in the Game of Thrones world. For instance:

Mottos (click to show)


Those are some examples of the various phrases. They're used as battlecries, as threats, as boasts, etc. For instance, Robb Stark yells: "Tell him that Winter is Coming for him", which takes the motto and adds upon it.

I'd like you to imagine that your character possesses a motto. I'd love if you told the story of how they came to hold it, cherish it, use it, etc. Do they use it as a battlecry? Do they use it when they summon their Pokemon? Do they use it when boasting to a Gym/Hall Leader?

Just like the previous contest,
YOU ARE ALL JUDGING.

1.) One submission may be made per member. Choose carefully: The chosen character will be the one to receive the rewards. Prizes are non-transferable
2.) You may not use a placeholder. You'll be PMing your submissions to me, so don't PM me placeholders. I will put up all the entries shortly after the due date for voting. The entries will not be anonymous this time.
3.) This is a Human Character only contest.
4.) The contest will end at 11:59 pm on Tuesday, April 23rd. No submissions after midnight will be counted. This gives you two weeks.
5.) Grammar, spelling and syntax should all be correct. Once I put the stories up, you will no longer be able to edit them. Likewise, I'd prefer if you only sent me one copy of the submission, to make things easier on my end.
6.) Voting will begin shortly thereafter. Votes need to be in by 11:59 pm on May 1st. I'll announce the winners after that.
7.) YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO VOTE FOR YOURSELF.
8.) The contest is open to everyone with an active PANE profile.
9.) This thread is for questions, comments, snarky remarks and sarcastic digs, so please make use of it. Do not PM me with any of the above.
10.) I'll be the tiebreaker.
11.) Mottos are like haiku; they should sum up a lot with very few words. With that being said, I'd like no motto to be more than FOUR WORDS LONG.

The Prizes:

First Place: +15 Levels, and a TM/Move Tutor move for three of your pokemon.
Second Place: +12 Levels, and a TM/Move Tutor move for two of your pokemon.
Third Place: +9 Levels, and a TM/Move Tutor move for one of your pokemon.
Honourable Mention: +6 Levels
Consolation Prize: +3 Levels + Tissue

The TM/Move Tutor moves will not be under the restrictions that Pokemon normally face when requesting TM or Move Tutor moves from the Move Request Thread. For instance, if you wanted your Bulbasaur to learn Giga Drain, Charmander to learn Dragon Claw, and your Squirtle to learn Ice Beam, it would be totally cool and not fall under the restrictions we normally place.

Happy writing, everyone!

Nope. You just have to send it to me, so I can post them all up at once for voting.

*peeks around corner* Kamai, I presume you mean 1st of May instead of April *please don't shoot me*

And my Q: so no pokémon involved or just that the main character is a human? (presuming last one)

My body...
is made out of swords.
Iron is my blood
and glass is my heart.


I have overcome countless battlefields undefeated.
Not once have I retreated,
Nor once have I been understood.
Always alone....
On the hill of swords...
intoxicated by victory...


Thus, this life has no meaning...
This body...surely was...
Made out of blades.

Ooooh nice catch! Fixed! May 1st.

Also, for this one I'd prefer if the protagonist or POV is that of a human character.

Wasn't planning on using anything except a human protagonist :p

I'm writing my story from the point of view of a Pokeball.

It's motto? "Gotta catch'em all."

Is it ok if it's five words instead of four? Because I have a kickass one for Vanessa that's five words, not four.

Friendly suggestion: Make the title of your fic your motto to remove any ambiguity about what the motto is. wink.gif

Bleh. Busy life is annoying. This weekend, though, it should be done.
