So it's Futurama and/or Simpsons this time around?  Awesome!

Say, what about Venture Bros.?

You say no scripts.

Like that, yes. We're after prose,like a regular novel or short story. Just so everything's on an equal footing.

Terry, go read it again. :P

Archonix, I sent you a PM question, but I suppose it'd be good to have it for the public record: Are competitors allowed to use beta-readers?

EDIT: Just to let everyone else know, it is indeed okay to use beta-readers. Whether or not you ask another competitor, is, of course, up to you. :p

I'm so sure of winning, I spend time asking people to rate the assassins out of Venture Brothers.

I'm so confident I'm going to lose, I've even said so in my entry thread!  But that's just a personal Jan Brady moment  ;D

I'd like to enter this contest with a Futurama fic. I still have 13 days, right?
