He doesnt have to count it

i am writing it because i was inspired to
it is literally the first time it ever dawned on me to write the old admiral
a little backgrojund he never got

besides nightstar has it locked with twenty two stars and god knows how many flags

I hope you did enjoy it though it has a part two( Iwas forced to split it up, like this response)

When I post here on ATS I decided a long time ago not to go for the flags or for the stars

I wanted to learn to reach people with my post.. Touch a heart, spread enlightenment, Learn from the people here that had something to share, Make mistakes..

If I start paying attention to little things like rules
or even worse Stars and flags my post go WAY down in quality
even below there present standard

I am working on context inside my post
flow of the information
and separation of separate ideas

I am very curious on feedback..

Did you like the first story better with the Yeti tribes
or the Story of the Admiral taking spawar independent

Totally agree with you, we are not back at school. I dont think you will be devastated at not getting your flags etc. I know the rules are there for a reason in order to make the comp manageable etc but the main reason it is there is to bring together different ideas and stories in order to provide entertainment, learning and a brief escape from this sh*t world. Also the feedback from a diverse audience is very helpful in order to improve your writing skills and know if you are achieving the ideas that you are aiming for.

EDIT: (moved to a separate post instead of response)

Keep in mind a little tibbit in closing
The rules shcmules
It sounds bad but and pay attention

If I break a rule the mods will slap it down (universally)
(my way is so I do not take any of it personally.. Binizz is binizz)

I am learning to feel the rules and know them (it applies not just here)
1)simple manners go a long way
2) not my house, so take off my shoes and listen to the lady of the house
3)dont leave a mess
4)be excellent to one another (even the knuckleheaded trolls)

So far no bans(knock on wood)
I think maybe three slaps on the wrist
One thread closed(in the writing section)
One idea for a thread told no to

The fun part is I have had fun doing all of this

Also keep a reverse axiom in mind
The mods are not the rule enforcers
1)the other posters are

No one here can lie on this.. Even though I dont try to get them, when I see the fact someone stars and or flags a thread or a post you get this little warm feeling

The posters here as everywhere determine your ultimate fate
its their stars and flags not the mods

Make them mad and god forbid you try to responds to something in a different thread
on a subconcious level they KNOW its you

(Not that I have EVER tested this

I am not trying to get off subject and this last bit after the edit is more general response to the idea and NOT the poster

As for the tie to this thread it is simple
The writers forum is a good microcosm of ATS as a whole

The readers and posters are a little tougher on the nerves then the other parts of ATS
The Same T and C apply
The rules I mentioned never fail

I hope more entries will get added
I hope that the ATS live show will start at least announcing the winners of the Contest on the show
I hope eventually ATS might have enough stories going to where they can publish a solid book
I hope Mr. Mask comes back and post more comics

Most of all I hope the ones reading these stories stop in the thread and give constructive praise
Constructive criticism ( be gentle these stories are like there children and every writer will act like a parent over them)
Or at the very lest

hey character x was cool, and the scene with the stripper ghost was awesome.. But next time I suggest handling the idea with littel different tact.. Not for morl reasons but because the readers in this niche respond better to..
The police officer laughed, "So a dead stripper appeared and stole your wedding ring." The officer made the crazy sign to his partner


The ghost Stripper's nude form swayed ( snip- t and C violation)

Just post enough to let them know
1) you hve read the story
2)what you liked

Well I am done ranting over writing for this contest
I would like to thank everyone personally in a public forum for reading my stories

I agree with you to a point, I write for fun and really no other reason if I do manage to get published one day, GREAT! If not, oh well, I honestly enjoy writing. However, I really like getting stars and flags for my posts, especially my writing, because it lets me know that people ARE reading what I write. And isn't that the writers conundrum? Do ourr writings even technically exist if there is no one to read it? Truly, the audience makes the writer and that's why I like stars and flags. Not everyone can always give a reply but it is quick and easy to star or flag a post. ATS has a solid and supportive community of writers.

I also owe you thank you

You generated a great series of ramblings in my an relit the fire on the story

The next scene in the story comes from what you generated in my mind

A Gift In The Dark [SEC2014]


Well, this is my offering. It is way longer than is good to submit for a contest, but I got swept into the story and my characters would not let me go until it had all been told. So, there you have it.

I hope someone manages to get through it! Lol!!

I am working my way through everyone's submissions and have been vastly impressed by your writing. I look forward to reading the rest!!

This is my first entry ever on the ATS writing forums. I condensed the story down as much as I could, but this is about as short as my stories get. I hope you all enjoy it.
