Contest: Crossovers!

Thu Nov 8, 2012, 8:37 PM
 As kids, we often mashed our toys together, regardless of Copyright. Superman would take command of G.I. Joe to defeat the combined forces of Doctor Doom and the Decepticons, while Barbie took a break from her idealistic lifestyle to become a Pokemon master. And the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got recruited into Starfleet and taught Spock the wonders of pizza. (And from the furor arose Mister Rogers in a blood-stained sweater.)
A Zombie-Free Mega-Crossover by JZLobo
And thus, the Crossover was born. It's something we never really outgrew, either. To this day, seeing our favorite characters from different stories meet and compete is a guilty pleasure that we all like to indulge in. So now's your chance to indulge yourselves for prizes!

I wanted to enter, but the crossover project I'm currently working on will be, like, a chaptered story, and so far I only have the end planned out. And I have work-related stuff to do, meaning I can't even write a preview chapter in a rush >.<

Question: Do symbols such as quotation marks, brackets and the like count for the word count as well or is it actual words? Please answer back.

Because Points can be used to buy merchandise from the site, where a Premium account is strictly digital in its value. Of course, if you would like to take up the point, you could discuss it with :iconmoonbeam13: if you win.

Do the characters have to be completely fictional? I wanted to crossover two movies but one of the movie's main characters are a real band as themselves, even though the movie is a completely fictional story.

Yes, purely fictional characters only, please.

My entry is submitted! :squee:

I was scanning over the entries, and there's a lot of junk in there (spam, and unrelated stuff). Does that happen a lot? :O

JZLobo Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Every single contest. A lot of it is new kids who don't bother to read the category system and just click randomly, and a lot is non-English-speakers who alos click randomly because they don't understand. Every gallery has this problem, it's just a lot more obvious in smaller galleries like Contests.

And you want to know the scary thing? We've already begun cleaning it up.

This is the first official dA contest I've entered, and I've never really looked at those galleries before. I can't imagine how annoying that must be to clear up. :no: Although, on the plus side, I did see some good entries mixed in with all the clutter.

(And somehow, when I first read it, I completely missed the fact there'd be prizes for both literature and visual art. I admit, that makes me feel better. I always find it odd when contests try to judge the two against each other. They're completely different mediums. :shrug: )

JZLobo Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yes, it's especially annoying on my dialup connection, and dA has been glitchy as of late--it's been giving the other CVs problems too when I enlisted their help. I've been moving about two a day, rough average.

You're right, they're completely different mediums and I always feel uncomfortable entering contents where the two are judged side by side. There's always a bias towards art.

:iconsingingflames:
SingingFlames Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I've noticed the bias too. :hmm: I was (pleasantly) surprised in one fan contest where a fanfic won first place, and art pieces came in second and third. But usually the visual art comes out on top.

What I meant to say was "can there be more than two fandoms in one's entry? Or should it be strictly be just two at a time?"

Ah, in that case you can crossover as many things as you want.
