The fifth Felarya contest opens now ! :dance:
This time it is for writers  ^_^

The theme : Becky the pirate mermaid.
It's directly inspired by this picture Welcome aboard the Becky by Karbo
Yes, it's a little crazy concept but I thought there were actually a good amount of elements that could make for an interesting and original story :D

So write a story about Becky and her crew ^^

Becky sees herself as a full member of the crew : She shares their life, she laugh and drink with them, she has her word when decisions are taken, she protect them and take part in combat, but she is like a blank sheet of paper at this stage. You will have complete free rein to imagine her personality, behavior, quirks and back-story and basically turn her into a full-fledged character.
There are several aspects you can chose to play on :  
her relation with the rest of the crew, the personality and role of the various pirates, how that strange system works and hold, how that deal happened in the first place, who is this very serious-looking man at the stirring-wheel XP  etc..
You can have vore or not, you can chose to illustrate the picture or do something completely different. Are they just sailing the sea in search of targets, are they adventuring in search of a treasure ?
The choice is yours ^^

Some more precisions about Becky's appearance :

The wiki where you can find some useful infos about Felarya in general : felarya.com/wiki/index.php?tit…

:bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue:

The entries will be judged on :
- The writing : how well the story flows.  Does it pulls the reader in with striking scenes and descriptions that make them travel in ?

- The characters : Do you manage to make Becky an interesting and memorable character ? Unique, with her own personality and traits but in the same time blending well with the rest of the universe ? And what about the rest of the crew ?

:bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue:

-The prizes :
:winner: 1st :  A fully colored and extra-finalized illustration, possibly of your story if you wish , or of (almost ) anything of your choice ^^

2nd : A normal colored illustration

:bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue:

The rules :

- Multi-entries are allowed but avoid submitting more than two ( or remove one previous entry from the contest before )

-If you enter the contest, you agree that I can possibly display your entry in the Felarya wiki or use some element of it.

-Because there are some non-English-people who could enter, you are authorized to ask an editor to check up and correct your writing if you wish.

-If you enter the contest, well you must accept there is the eventuality you don't win in the end... It may seems silly to say but if you are not prepared for it, you should probably not enter ^^;

-The deadline is the 28th December but it's not engraved in stone and is subject to changes. If it happens it will be properly signaled tough.


Please don't hesitate to ask me if you have any questions, if possible here on the journal so everyone got to see the answer :)
I hope this contest will be a success. I'm eagerly waiting to see your entries ! ;)





The new Tome of the manga is out ! ^_^ www.e-junkie.com/karbo/product…

Wait, wait, wait! Hold the phone... There's another extension?! To the 20th of January?! Aw man... all that rushing to finish my story for nothing xD Well... I suppose that means there's enough time to throw in another story entry before then. Now the question is whether or not I want to do it about when Aiden first met Becky, or perhaps a sequel more focused on Black Leg John... hmmmmm...

well yes ^^ ;
I realized there were several people who really wanted to enter and couldn't because they either started writing too late or left for the vacations. so in the end I thought an extension was a nice idea. I am sorry if you feel hurried for nothing ^^;

Hopefully I'm not too late... and my story will be good and awesome enough to win >_> *fingers crossed*

I kind of doubt I'll win though given all the skilled writers in this contest though :P But hey! Another story for you to peruse Karbo!

Thank you very much ^_^ I'm honored that you enjoyed my story :D

I have now uploaded my story to my gallery so that you may put it into the contest folder. You're lucky I like you and your work so much, because it was being quite stubborn to convert into a PDF file :P I'm looking forward to seeing who will win your contest, and I was glad I got the opportunity to have such a fun prompt to work with.

Well, I've officially gone off the deep end. Despite working a job that demands 70 hour weeks from me and a lot of travel, I've been writing a story, almost exclusively when I should have been sleeping. The results? A 79 page story, going to be pushed above 80 when I insert chapter breaks.

I'm going to end up skimping on the editing so I can get this sucker published. I'll aim to have it up by Saturday, but the sooner, the better. I will breathe such a sigh of relief once this is off my plate!!!!

Yeah, I think his story AND yours have a chance. As for me, its hard to say. I left holes in mine in case I do win, but Im not putting all my cards down. If neither of us wins, we can still write, right?

Reeeeally? You think mine has a good chance? *_* I should read yours next :D

Indeed we can! Heck I may even still decide to write more with Becky if I fail to win. It can be fan-fiction at that point xD Besides, these kinds of contests are also good for displaying the talents of all the writers as well, so it gets my name out there more. ^_^

I agree. Even though I can't even win a FAKE lottery ticket, I'm still optimistic in competitions.

But yes, even if I don't win, I still see a lot of potential in my character Kain (you'll see him in it) so if I don't win, I'll write about Kain instead. Win/win for me I guess.

Short and sweet, I hop you like it! Look up Felarya and Becky (which are the tags), and it should be pretty obvious by the title which one it is. Thanks again!

On the last chapter, and I want to also include an epilogue chapter. I should also have time for some quick editing after that, especially on chapter 1, where I was still finding my groove. It's been a lot of fun writing it, although 95% of my time writing it has been during times when I should be sleeping, so I'm really burning myself out with this. It'll be a relief when I'm done, but I'm glad I've done it all the same!

Lumfan247 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012
So far my story is looking like it might come out to be something like 12 pages long, and be quite an adventure on the high seas. And Becky's the captain! :D

I had a few quick questions though that I felt like I had to ask. What kind of limitations are there on NC-17 content? Like sex, drugs, gore, and things like that? From what I've seen Felarya most consists of soft vore, some violence, and some digestion. Obviously you also have naked monster girls roaming about too... but I wanted to know where exactly is the line? Because I'm almost certain that there's one there, and I don't want to accidentally cross it. Just so you know though, I'm not likely going to cross it in this story, I just wanted to know for the sake of others, and in case I do more stories in the future that might cross that line.

Lastly, you said that we have an empty page to work with for her personality and things, right? With the way you were talking about her relationship with her crew, I sort of got the this crazy idea in my head to write her having a sort of pseudo romance with one of her crew mates. >_> Would that be okay? I say pseudo because it can't exactly go anywhere, given that he'd be a human, and therefore smaller than her finger.

Hopefully, it'll be a lot of fun and you'll like it! xD

Well I can honestly say that what I have so far is so incredibly awesome. I think you'd like the love story I have planned for her. I just have one more question. Since I'm a fairly new member of DA, I have no idea how to submit ideas to contests. Do I just say "Here's my submission" or do I have to say a certain thing in the description?

I wrote a prologue chapter for my entry, and it ended up being 5 pages single spaced, lol. Hope you've got time to read a novella...

I'm just worried that I'm going to lose steam before I finish. I've mapped out a whole story, but at this rate I might have to wrap it up around the halfway point and leave the second half as a potential sequel... I'm also going to have to edit the first three pages pretty heavily since I'm not that satisfied with the quality of my writing there.

Thanks for doing this contest, though. I haven't written anything in forever, and I've never written anything worthwhile, so it's fun to get into the groove. I've got a boring desk job so I can think about the characters and plot elements all day, and the end results should be pretty fun.

To other competitors, best of luck!

Looks like the prologue will require a full rewrite or some SERIOUS editing. I'm really not happy with it. Good news is I'm in the swing and I feel pretty good about the first two pages of the story proper. I'm sure no one cares, but there's nowhere else in the world I can post how this is going. :(
