    Great job, authors! I did not see a sub-awesome vignette in the entire competition, which made it hell to judge. But in the end, it was worth it. Wouldn't you say, JediMaster-Jen?>

    Ooh! Sounds interesting!

    1. The entry must be three posts long at most.
    This means it can be vignette length, right?

    Count me in please :)

    It can be a vignette, of course. In fact, it's intended to be a vignette. But, for the more longwinded authors out here, I allowed up to three posts.

    Okay, can someone explain it to me?

    And is it possible if the deadline is in October, my internet at home doesn't work :(.

    All I need is an explanation right now.

    We can try and work something out, Mark. But you may need to work on it on an offline word processor and borrow your friend's computer or something...

    When are our pieces due by? And can we submit more than one?

    ~LtJS @};-

    EDIT: And maybe this question seems like sacrilege *ducks head* but what does Ben look like?

    Mike, a vignette is a short story. The deadline is September 20th(sorry, dunno what I was thinking).

    Lt-Jaina Solo, you are free to make your own appearance for Ben, but the canon projection is strawberry blonde hair with blue eyes, I believe.

    Whoa. What is this about Friday being the deadline?

    The top message says September 20th.

    Please don't make it the day after tomorrow! I'll never get anything done in time! Ahhh!

    Ok I thought so. Thanks.

    About the Deadline for entry, is it the deadline to enter your vignette, or is the final date for someone to sign up.

    I want to sign up but i definately need till 20 of September.

    Preferably the 21th cause of the dvd release ;)

    Anyway if the deadline is 20th of september count me in.


    And about the size, is three posts long the equivelant of 3 pages long with normal font and 12 pt large font?
