    so if 2017 tm anime are a category and non-fate are a category and lemons are a category

    And HF is FSN and FSN is three routes so if i'm reading this right

    As I understand it
    Lemon = Any franchise must have sex
    Non-Fate = Not Fate
    2017 Anime = HF, GO home, Apo, Extra

    So then you basically just can't write about
    Zero, Labyrinth, Prototype, Prototype Fragments, Strange Fake, Hollow Ataraxia, Unlimited Codes, Tiger Colosseum, Himaten, Capsule Servant, Hanafuda, Koha-Ace?, and FSN unless it relates to HF somehow

    Though is CCC, Foxtail, and Extella allowed because of the Extra anime?
    Also Prisma is getting a movie in 2017 so shouldn't that be included in the 2017 anime projects too?

    Oh alright I can tell when an idea is bad I'm just going to change it to be a freeform contest once more! Write whatever you feel like and I will be changing the judging categories slightly as well to adjust for this change in conditions.

    In that case, are you going to hand out prompts for people to work with again?

    Well, whether you set categories broad enough to be essentially meaningless or just call it freeform, you're still just telling people to write whatever and turn it in. It's not exactly the best incentive and it doesn't really facilitate inspiration or set a basis for judging and comparison beyond the technical aspects. And then it's not much of a contest.

    And here are a few prompts to give this contest a little more direction!

    Ancient Past: The Nasuverse has gotten quite large as of late so why not look into a character's past? Maybe you want to explore the ancient past of a Servant's legend to see what makes them tick or maybe you just want to talk about young Zolgen, but whatever it is stick to what is already said and done.
    Grail War: Use this fancy little tool here to create unexpected pairings for Masters and Servants: http://hgwsim.tumblr.com/ By randomly generating your own unique Grail War the possibilities are nearly limitless!
    Knk/Tsukihime: Back in the old days Knk and Tsukihime were considered to be on a similar pedastal to Fate. Though those days may have waned somewhat perhaps it is time to return to those days? Do a story on either Knk or Tsukihime and give those characters the spotlight they deserve.
    Magi Adventures: Magi are often seen either in their workshops, classrooms, or involved in a Grail War but perhaps it may be more interesting to see Magi in another situation? Whether it is on a mission to find an ancient artifact or to perform a Sealing Designation anything is possible so long as the magus has the guts.
    Vampires: There is a lot of information regarding Servants but less so for another important side of the Nasuverse, the vampires. Does not necessarily mean a Dead Apostle Ancestor but simply may be a vampire with a unique or odd trait that you want to see expanded upon in a oneshot.
    In Another's Shoes: One of the easiest ways to mess with fiction is to simply take a situation and change around the characters in some way, shape, or form in order to create an entire new story so why not take advantage of that? Whether it be Shiki summoning a Servant or Shinji being forced to deal with his newfound Tohno sister the sky is the limit.

    So folks if you are interested in joining just let me know and I'll add your name to the front page.

    Will you randomly assign prompts, Milbunk, or are the prospective authors free to pick a prompt they prefer?

    You can pick what you want to write though if you are stuck I don't mind suggesting one of the prompts.

    Ah sorry Spoony wasn't sure if you were clear about entering or not I'll put you on there.

    And yes though two 10 rolls could very well amount to nothing that's not gonna stop you from trying.

    Do we have to use the hgw generator? Or can you come up with your own pairings for each?

    Sure you can come up with your own! That generator was simply an idea to get the ball rolling on your fanfic but if you want to do something completely different feel free.
