Writer's Contest - Gathering of the Fellowship

Thanks Nell for drawing our attention to that competition!
I have a question for fluent English speakers:
"No slash/het/erotic stories"

I know what are erotic stories, but what is "slash" and "het"?!
I'm not kidding - I really do not know!

I don't know either, unless the "slash" refers to stories like the horrible movies that slice up its victims, usually female. "Het" isn't a word I've ever run across.
'Share and enjoy'

Thanks Grondy! Now I became really intrigued about that word "het" and I put it into my Gooogle, as "het stories". And immediately I got the links which explained all. Well, apparently "slash" and "het" are, respectively, stories with homo- and heterosexual content. I think, however, that stories containing too much horror are also not suitable for that competition because it is recommended that they should be family-friendly!

To Council Members: If you think that these explanation are unsuitable for this site please delete all this discussion! nn[Edited on 6/11/2003 by Eryan]

I think your explanation is fine Eryan.

I cannot enter this one :( . Even my short stories are too long. With the exception of the Fall of Osgiliath, they are all over the 3000 word limit.

I'm hoping to have another story ready in the next few weeks but that one will be in the 5000 word region too.

What a pity Val!
I have an idea of a short story but I doubt I'd be able to write it for 21th November. But I wrote two essays and I may perhaps submit one of them. I need however to translate one of them into English!

I combined Brego's battle and The Northern Star to one story and entered that. I'm very curious if they will like it.

I think i might enter too. Do you have to be going to The Gathering to enter? Toronto's a bit far for me...

Oh and by the way - I haven't missed the deadline have i? I couldn't find it on the site.nn[Edited on 12/11/2003 by Rawien]

No, you don't have to be going to The Gathering to enter.
The deadline has just been extended to November 30.
So get out your pens.
We have some very talented poets and writers here so I am looking forward to your entries.

I'm still thinking about showing my poem,just don't think it's very good.
I was born to catch dragons in their dens
And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days.
