I don’t know if I can submit this for the contest, as a portion of it is vocabulary invented and copied from another post, but if it is acceptable and not considered plagiarism then I hope it is to your liking. I organized the vocabulary better, starting with categories and then often alphabetizing it within each category. I also explained a connection between the languages of Athra/Amarr and Soliara, and did my best to translate the Holder oath, word for word.

At this time, this specific entry is not being accepted.

Looking over this thread again, I noticed that in the basic information section the fourth category is named “News/Gossip/Opinion Pieces” yet in the story listing this category is titled “Gossip/News”… Which is it? My submission is not gossip or news. I submitted it as an “Opinion Piece” because it is meant as an insight as to my opinion on the current widespread mindset of capsuleers. However, every other entry so far in this category is about recent events or conspiracy gossip, which makes me think my entry doesn’t fit here.

I would like a bit of clarification on what “Opinion Piece” is supposed to mean. The current post doesn’t make that clear. If my entry is miscategorized I’d like it moved to Prose I guess. That’s the next best place it would fit.

Looks like it was just missed out in the list. I’m pretty sure it’s still opinion pieces as well.

Opinion is part of news. I updated OP to make that clear, however!

OP also updated with entries to date. Only 3 weeks or so left to enter!

Have there been any entries that resemble the categories I suggested for the special prizes ?

I would like to submit the following series of news and gossip concerning the holoreel The True Emperor and its spinoff: 1 2 3 4

I will let the judges decide, but it strikes me that so far nothing seems… obvious. For those curious, a reminder!

OP has been updated with all entries to date!

We’re a little low on poetry this year so far.
Plenty of chances to win in all categories. Deadline is May 21st!

If this works for prose/freewriting, I’d like to submit it that way. If it works as something which people might gossip about, then that way instead. Whatever you decide, I hope it is a read to your liking.
