Title: The Dirty Assassin [EEfangirl] rated R
Post by: EEfangirl on August 15, 2012, 10:33:48 pm
Alrighty, I guess I'll get the ball rolling here with a less-than-perfect story. This is definitely rated R, and it's set after Amaranthe escapes from Pike and Ravido. I'm sure this will all be completely wrong as of September, but as of now, it's all fair game for post-canon stuff for this contest, right?  ;D

Sounds like fun & post-canon is all good.

This is going to be a hard (hee hee) contest to judge!  Already spec-tac-ular! and we only have 2 entries submitted!

Thanks guys!

Wow, just WOW!

OK. I feel like I can't read yours until I post mine. So here it is.

Mana: Can you clarify the rules on posting comments on entries?
Thx!

Edit: Rated R. Falls between EE2 and EE3. Canon. Yes, I said canon.

I think no comments should be related to the story discussion.  I think praise is good but nothing that would fall under Spoiler tags.

What do you think?

Actually, I think my first thought was any comments would color the voting.  Maybe only smiley faced comments?  No words?

Hmmm.  I belong to a  mommies forum that has a lot more options.  Mana, is there a way to unlock (for lack of a better word) more emoticons, or are these all of the free ones?

I don't have any more in the base install.  If I get time I'll see if there is a plug-in pack of emoticons. I only use the wink and the straight up and the frown, usually so I didn't think about it before now.

I haven't written anything in a really long time, but this seemed like a fun challenge. Here's my go.

I'm not 100 percent clear on the ratings, but I went with PG13 for implied nudity and adult situations.  ;)

Why OH WHY! Is your emoticon kissing the other emoticon's tush?  and then licking it's lips?????!!!!!!
Title: Re: Dirty Assassin fan fiction contest - Now Open

That is a very dirty interpretation. Emoticons don't have tushes. It's kissing its cheek.  ::)

Title: The Dirty Assassin [AKK] [PG13]
Post by: AKK on August 24, 2012, 12:25:11 pm
So here it is. The result of two weekends and too many extended coffee breaks:

AKK's variant of "The Dirty Assassin" or "The Dark Side of Fame - The Light Side of Infamy".
The subtitle is much too large for a ficlet like this, but then, I might yet expand on the theme, so there. Basically, it's a P.R. nightmare with cramps. ;)

Type: in canon between Dark Currents and Deadly Games
Genre: slice of life (more or less)
Rating: PG13

Legalese: CC BY-SA 3.0 (as stated at the end of the story).

Riamachia, you might be wrong with one of your assumptions (though I'm pointedly not saying, you are):
Spoiler
"non-murderous" is only valid if Sic fetched Lev's uniform (and standard-issue short sword seen in EE3) without encountering and removing that unknown Lev.
While I totally believe that he would take the uniform off a clothesline, I don't think short swords are regularly hung out to dry. It's the one point about which Am also had her doubts in EE3, if you recall.
In a way, my fic opens a way for Sicarius not to lie about where he got the uniform (clothesline, just his own and not the unknown Lev's) and still having killed Lev.
Yes, I'm playing advocatus diaboli with my own fic.  8)
