As announced in May, the XFU Annual Fanfic Contest is ongoing. Posted in the forums is last year’s winner and the guidelines for this year’s contest. Please note: All fanfic entries must be resubmitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for entry is July 31.
Categories for fanfics are
1. Relationships: Any Characters from the Series
And we do mean any character combinations; the judges will be looking into the possibility even probability of the said relationship. How true you have remained to the characters in question, and the situation you have placed them in. As well as their response to this.
2. Case file
Would this have made a good episode? will be the first question on the judges’ mind, closely followed by would it even be remotely possible within the realms of science?
3. Alternative universe
Give Mulder and Scully kids, marry them, split them up, give William twelve toes and paranormal powers. Here you can do what you like. The judges are looking for a good story, something along the lines of what Chris would come up with to taunt us / please us (Triangle is a good example). If the way out is not your thing, give a character in the series a new/extended personality.
This category, if sufficient entries are received, will be split.
4. Second Language Fic
This Category is open to everyone who does not have English as a maiden language, here the judges will look for storyline, Spelling and Grammar will to some extend be overlooked, but not completely dismissed, how well the story reads will be taken into consideration.
