Good luck, everyone!
I'm so excited that there is a contest this year, and I am glad that the tradition of accepting fics at con is continuing. We initially started that option so that folks composing their fics during panels at the Beta Station/Creation Station, and/or folks who became inspired by any panels therein to feel comfortable to share their work for the first time, would have the opportunity to do so.

Have fun! :D YAY!

Excellent!   ;D

I do have one quick question. Is Homestuck eligible as a fandom for this contest?  If not, I understand completely and will submit works for other fandoms - I just wanted to check, since there's a lot of fan demographic overlap, and most of my recent writing has been for that comic.

Not on it's own, but in a crossover it would be acceptable.  I realize that there is a lot of fan overlap, but for the contest we are going to restrict it to
"anime, manga, Japanese video game, or Japanese musical group."

Thanks for your understanding :)

What's the limit on stories? I know that with the AMV contest, you're allowed an allotted amount for the different categories. What's the rules with fanfiction?

No problem!   ;)  Like I said, just checking.  I've got a few works in the allowed categories that should be just fine.
