    i am jiraiya's FAUST's Nagato...the inspiration to his story

    Look around you carefully. Strain your eyes at the darkness around us... At the darkness around me. You said anywhere but here. This is where, here, at the border. Gathered by the winds. Those who have met their final destiny hanging between jealousy and regret. Those who failed, swept together here. You say it doesnt matter where. If you follow me, this is where you'll go. This is your eden.

    Sorry, Niichan. I'll be updating the list of winners this weekend and delivering the badges right after. Couldn't do it before due to some exams I had this week

    No big deal =) ~niichan

    Re: All-Purpose Art Contest Discussion Thread

    I was wondering, maybe a word count next time would be more viable? Because dialogues one word or ten take up one line regardless ^^;
    Or has that been considered and rejected for a reason before?

    Re: All-Purpose Art Contest Discussion Thread

    Maybe we can follow this guideline:

    Quote Quote:
    Other definitions place the maximum word count of the short story at anywhere from 1,000 to 9,000 words. In contemporary usage, the term short story most often refers to a work of fiction no longer than 20,000 words and no shorter than 1,000, or 5 to 20 pages.
    ?

    Re: All-Purpose Art Contest Discussion Thread

    Yeah, we can use that^^ (the word count option). We decided on a length limit so the story would be indeed short and people would read it, and I thought that a line count would be a simpler to do it. I'll check that 20.000 criterion and then we can go with something along that in the next contest.

    Re: All-Purpose Art Contest Discussion Thread

    Ah I thought so. Well this is going to be a bit complicated and an opinion from a total amateur but how about something like:
    - Cutting down to max ~40 lines, but
    - If there were lines part of a sentence from a previous line that only have two words or less, they don't count towards a line;
    - Sentences or dialogues that are less than half the length of a full line counts as half a line?

    This way it would keep the story short in appearance (hence easily readable) while solving the one-word-one-line and dialogue issue (since sometimes a line could be simply 3 words for a dramatic build-up or something, but it's too short to account for anything really.)

    If you want, we can use the standard for flash fiction instead (300-1000 words) so it wouldn't be too long.

    Re: All-Purpose Art Contest Discussion Thread

    I think the word count is a good solution... also it's the most used for magazines and sites for submitting short stories to be published, at least the ones I know of...
    That also gives more liberty to writing them...
    A story could be made mainly of short dialogs, that would extend the "lines", but would be within a limit of words and it can be done in a way the reader won't even notice it's somewhat "long"
