A little reminder to authors
There’s always going to be that self-proclaimed know-it-all person that claims to have some ‘insider information’ on any given element within a fandom, especially true when it comes to fantasy and scifi, where they will spout ad nauseam how something may or may not be possible when all they are really showing is how very lacking in imagination they sadly are.
Just ignore them and keep creating - the fans appreciate it - because it’s sooo refreshing to get new perspectives and air out some of the boring old ideas.
Take it from me, I’m one of those fans that enjoy watching your imagination run free. And I’ll always be here to support you and those ‘crazy’ ideas of yours. ;’D
The Dashing And Demure Design-A-Character Contest is OPEN
Contest entries are open now, and will stay open for 2 weeks, until October 22nd. So start designing your characters and sending them in!
D&D Design-A-Character Contest Entry Conditions
Contest entries can take two forms:

2. A short (1000 word maximum) fiction snippet of your character’s life in the Regency world.
Either entry type is fine, but don’t submit both. You may send in as many entries as you like.
1. No long-lost members of the Hamato clan, no former students of Hamato Yoshi, no family relatives of any kind.
2. See rule 1.

However, mutants are welcome.
Entries breaking these rules will not be posted.
If we choose your character submission, we promise not to

By submitting your character idea, you give the creators of Dashing and Demure free rein to use the character in a way that best suits the plot and the world. You relinquish any and all creative control over the submitted character.
How to submit

This made me laugh so hard you have no idea.
