OCT: Site News Edition!


The OCT, or, Original Character Contest, was created by PeppersGhostPeppersGhost to encourage some community fun. Every contestant entered with a character of their own creation to be paired against another contestant in a tale. Fighting, drinking, hanging out, nothing was off the table so long as it starred both parties equally. Though many entered, only one will win. The first round of the tournament is over and some have had to go home already, but before we get into the breakdown, let's take a look at the entrants!

Fun contest facts!


This contest has brought out all sorts of characters from different walks of life, meaning that different Groups/Persons of Interest appearing was inevitable. Let's take a look at which G/PoI's came out to play!

Since we're looking at the backgrounds of some characters, why not take a look and see what kind of article they came from as well?

Grin and Bear It is probably my favorite of the entire round. Not only do we get to explore 3009-C and see a kinder side to the Foundation, but we also get a field trip to the Wilson Terrestrial Center! Excellent use of CSS, beautiful characterization and loving attention to detail come together to make this an easy pick for a highlight.

incorrective unconsciousness has some of the most painstakingly gorgeous prose and character moments this editor has seen.
