Control. Possess. Seduce. Contest taking entries through 2/19/16



Just in case you've thought about it but haven't given it a go yet, don't waste another minute... the Control.Possess.Seduce contest is accepting entries through 2/19/16. That's almost three whole weeks you've got to write! Get out your pens, laptops, music, tumblrs, whatever inspires you and write!

The entries in this contest have already gotten an amazing response. If you're a first time writer who's always wanted to give it a shot, this is your perfect opportunity. There's a perfect platform for you with this contest. We want what you've got!

Just choose one of the three contest topics: Control, Possess, Seduce and give Edward one of those three characteristics. Or, if you're feeling extra generous give him two or even better... all three!

Control. Possess. Seduce. Contest

From the ladies who brought you the Dirty Talking Edward Contest & The May to December Romance Contest!
Hosted by CarrieZM & Nicffwhisperer

Control. Possess. Seduce.

• Control: the power to influence or direct people's behavior or the course of events.

• Possess: have as belonging to one; own.

• Seduce: entice into sexual activity, attract powerfully.

This contest is based on Edward and we want your Controlward, your Possessiveward, and your Seductiveward. Give us an Edward with one of these characteristics or maybe all three! (Only one of these characteristics must be used). The possibilities are endless. Bring the sizzle, the dirty, and the seduction. Make us want him. We're looking for an Edward we can't stop thinking about!

Length: 3,000 to 15,000 words
Genre: Any genre.
Rating: M only. Readers, judges, and participants MUST be over 18.
Pairing: Edward/Bella ~ONLY~

Content Limitations: NO incest, bestiality, rape, pedophilia, or RPF. Any offending submissions will be disqualified upon receipt. No second chances will be given if you choose to breach the rules. We reserve the right to reject a submission on "ick factor", so please think out your submission. Also, This is not a BDSM Contest, but a dominant male contest. We want strong, intense, all encompassing Edwards... not whips and chains. (Think along the lines of The Blessing & the Curse, Fridays At Noon, and Deviant-type Edwards). We will not reject a well done BDSM fic, just please know there is a difference.
