Time to dig deep into the darkest and most twisted corners of your minds people :D
This month's topic is of the Dark Side!!!

Essence of the Dark Side:

What exactly is the dark side?

How can you truly sum up what it means to be evil?

How does a person fall to the dark side and why?...

... Just a couple of things to help you see what I mean :) ...

Looking forward to reading how dark the writers of Lucasforums can be :evil2: .... :xp:

Have fun and good luck!!!!

@Mods: Is art still accepted as an entry?

Yes, it is! :)

02-09-2009, 09:18 AM
Well then I just might have time to make a good dark picture. :)

There was an idea I had once that I think can loosely relate to the topic. I'll see if I can work on it, it can be great.

Would it be acceptable for my entry to be a continuation, or possibly a revision/rewrite, of an entry from my never-finished Diaries of a Jedi series? As I recall I never reached the point in that fic that I hope to use for this month's contest, and if it's acceptable I'd love to do so.

02-09-2009, 10:48 AM
Oooh, this subject looks very very promising....fine choice...Master BFA.....:D

In answer to your question Doc:

As long as the entry has not been published before on LF or any other fanfic site then you are in the clear.

Reminder to everyone:
Check out the rule thread for the list of rules that make an acceptable entry for Javyars.

I would have to say a revision of a story would not be allowed, but if it's a previously unpublished chapter in a continuing story, that would be fine.

Excellent. Thank you, Jae. ^_^ I shall be participating in this month's contest, then.

02-10-2009, 08:55 AM
Errr...what's the deadline? :p

02-10-2009, 09:28 AM
I'll enter this, it sounds interesting ^-^.

now i wonder what kind of evil is a good enough evil -goes off thinking-

02-10-2009, 10:57 AM
You'll definitely see me here...( Insert EVIL laugh here)

02-11-2009, 12:53 PM
We will be accepting entries until the end of next week February 21.

Does it have to be a force sensitive individual, or can they simply be dark and evil in nature?

Bee Hoon
02-14-2009, 09:54 PM
^ I'll defer to Mr_BFA on this, but I think that being Force-sensitive is not a requirement.

02-16-2009, 03:41 AM
Force-sensitive is not a requirement :)

02-16-2009, 11:59 AM
Mmmk, so basically, we just have to epitomise/embody/exemplify evil and darkness in some way. I'm ready to go. :P

02-16-2009, 02:40 PM
Whatever you get out of the prompt Addy. Heck you can go as deep as you want to with darkness.

02-17-2009, 10:33 AM
Well, I guess this'll be my first time entering. Those of you in my RP series will recognise the character.

02-17-2009, 09:53 PM
I'm just glad that it's not force-sensitive required...hehe....I submitted my post the day the topic came out, and the yay/nay on foce-sensitive requirements came down almost a week later...teehee.

02-18-2009, 03:04 AM
Okay, so yesterday I submitted my first ever fan-fic. In all honesty it wasn't really connected to Star Wars, nor was it much of a story. But yeh, it embodies my view of the darkside. :) Would that count or does it have to be a story, with a character and such?

Jae Onasi

It has to have some kind of connection to Star Wars. It doesn't have to be a major connection, but it has to be related somehow.

02-18-2009, 01:03 PM
Oh god . . . I already submitted it. Geez, I sure hope I did include a connection somewhere . . . damn thats a stupid mistake of me to make. I think I included one . . . I think . . .

02-18-2009, 06:54 PM
Maybe it's a stupid question, but I just want to be sure before I submit anything - are there any specific instructions/rules when it comes to submitting an art entry, or should I just make a normal thread here and put an "Other" prefix?

02-20-2009, 08:17 PM
I'm going to try and whip something up tonight to enter. It probably wont be very good though :D

Admiral_Thrawn, no worries :) Just take it as it comes!

igyman, that looks fine :)

LordOfTheFish, it'll be fine ;o Practice makes perfect anyway!

yo, can i just point out that the last javyar's contest was a draw between my and mr_bfa and i simply abdicated responsiblity for the topic-choosing (with conditions... :xp: ). so can i have one of those neat little badges aswell? :D

Put any badge requests in the badge thread in the forum feedback section of the main forum board, or PM one of us staffers, instead of posting here. I didn't see this at all (since it's off-topic for this thread) until I checked and saw there were what I thought were questions about this month's contest. --Jae

Jae's working her way through the list, so just be patient k? ;)

02-21-2009, 10:59 AM
k :)

02-21-2009, 11:01 AM
My submission isn't so much a fic in itself, as much as a retelling of my alternate star Wars future from the point of view of a prominent Sith Lord. Does that still work?
