FanFiction Contest: The Shortlist

http://i.imgur.com/kznPoIN.jpg Salutations! Firstly, congratulations! The unprecedented turnout for the **[FanFiction Contest](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/contest-fan-fiction/TQsEsHat-fanfiction-contest-announcement)** was incredible; with over 174,000 words written and 200+ stories submitted, the sheer amount and caliber of the community’s talent was displayed in full force. Between [plays](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/contest-fan-fiction/YZ8aiuE8-shakespeares-the-two-allies-of-piltover), poems, [Limericks](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/contest-fan-fiction/Gjylsavl-limerick-of-legends), and [epics ](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/contest-fan-fiction/qYsTEMFj-zilean-origins)– we had the joy to examine every expression of the written form and narrowed our Shortlist down to 10 stories. No easy task at all. For a refresher, the Shortlist was determined by the Rubric below. **** **Grading Rubric:** The Rubric is explained and ordered below in a weighted fashion. Creativity being the most important and Grammar being the least important to grading. * **Creativity. **The most important of the Rubric and that hardest to really quantify. In short, how did you best leave your fingerprint on the essence of League of Legends? * **Prompt.** _"The Average Day in Runeterra"_. * **League of Legends Elements.** This is a League FanFiction contest! The more elements from the game or lore (twisted or canon) the better! * **Grammar.** No one is perfect, we know that. And we also know that a single spelling mistake shouldn’t detract from a great story, but we need to be able to understand and get through your story without confusion. **** **Community Voting** But the Rubric and Shortlist only take the contest so far. The remaining honor of crowning the FanFiction Contest winners is now in your hands as a community. Out of the 10 Shortlist Finalists, we're only looking for **5 Victors**. Below, the Shortlist Finalists are listed and linked - using the poll at the bottom of the page, vote for your **_favorite _**FanFiction entry. Favorite. It's such a high standard and impossible trait to quantify. If you need the Rubric to help guide your vote, that's fine - but ultimately, don't let the Rubric restrict your personal taste and vote for the story that speaks to you. The community will have one week to select the winners; which means that on **August 5th**, the Final FanFiction Five will be chosen! And remember, if this Shortlist doesn't sate your hunger for incredible stories, there are the hundreds of adventures waiting in the **[FanFiction Contest Boards](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/contest-fan-fiction)**. **** **FanFiction Shortlist Finalists** **[An Average Day in the Sewers](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/contest-fan-fiction/OtVNtvZH-an-average-day-in-the-sewers)** by [Funsocks](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/player/OCE/Funsocks) _In this horrific and haunting tale, recruits patrolling the sewers are playing a deadly game of cat and rat around every dark corner. _ **[Freljordian Diplomacy](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/contest-fan-fiction/oh34YxOL-freljordian-diplomacy)** by [Jimsomi](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/player/OCE/jimsomi) _On a brisk and beautiful Freljordian morning, a Little Queen is up early.
