    Default The X-Fictor ~ Discussion Thread

    THE X-FICTOR
    FAN FICTION'S ANNUAL COMPETITION RETURNS - WITH A NEW NAME AND SOME TWISTS!

    New name, but it's pretty much the same old game - just with a couple of twists. This year, I'll be doing it solo: I'm going to be the judge, jury and executioner. All your entries will be reviewed and critiqued by myself, but I have recruited a couple of mates to help with proceedings. RT and PB, two fellow veterans and HOF'ers, will be helping out in a mentoring capacity. What does this involve, you ask? Well, RT and PB will be mentoring respective teams. With each writing challenge I give, these two posters will give you, the participants, advice on how to go about the task at hand - what to do and what to avoid doing. How will we decide these teams? Settle down, I'll tell you. Teams will be decided via blind auditions. Once we've reached our cap of sign-ups -- I'm aiming for 12 participants -- then I will ask you to provide me with your audition which you will send to me via PM. From there, I will forward these to the two mentors anonymously so all they see is what you handed in. No name attached, no clue of who it belongs to! Wonderful, isn't it? RT and PB will draft their team based on these entries and then the fun will really start. So, are you in or are you in? Can you join the likes of KJ, Froggy, BigRed and AM? Could we even see our first two-time winner? It's going to be a blast finding out...



    What are you waiting for?

    PARTICIPANT LIST:
    1. Sea Slug
    2. The Show
    3. Dazz Kid
    4. Kid Jericho
    5. AM
    6. Spreutels
    7. Fallen

    Because apparently I can't get enough of losing these things, I want in.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    At first, from the quick glance from the main page, I thought someone had created a fed dedicated to the most underrated trio of all time... X-FACTOR!!!

    *cue Uncle Kracker*

    So let down to see it ended up being this instead...

    I want at least three more sign-ups. Come on guys. A lot of people are quick to sign-up to our draft, the best draft on PW, every year. Well, next year I strongly believe the draft should be invite only, especially after our most recent draft. You want an invite? Take part in stuff like this or write a fed. Your choice.

    Guys, I have spent some time with my calculator this morning and if my math is correct, your chances of winning are higher if you sign up! So ... #signupcity #b*tch

    Ideally, I wanted an even set of teams. I'll give it 24 more hours. The poor sign-ups has only reinforced my believe that the Draft will be invite only. To those who have volunteered for this competition, your places will be secure. Throw in RT, PB, myself and the defending champion Zap and anyone else who I think is active enough to be considered.

    I've never done one of these so if someone explains what I have to do I might consider it.

    Check post two out. It's basically a writing contest. You'll be judged on anything from booking cards and storylines to promos to writing matches. After each stage, posters are eliminated if their entry isn't strong enough until we are left with one poster - the winner.

    Ah, I'll pass. I wouldn't be very good at this.
