Oops didn't realize I'd get the top spot - let me just add

Thanks. I write them that long; I just don't post them to Lit. in one go like that. Have to for the contests, though.

I would mind be arrested by the sheriff either.

Thanks to everyone who's so far entrered. But for those who haven't yet submitted let me remind you that A.I.R. does have somewhat different entry rules than the LITEROTICA section of the contest. Please consult the A.I.R. support thread for further details.


2013 Valentines Day Contest



A.I.R.s first contest of 2013 good luck

Scouriesworld, a fake poster. Scouires using an alt.

AIR, a fake association made up of scouries and only scouries.

His fake contest, self explanatory.

His fake rules, again self explanatory.

So all in all, someone fake, is advertising a Fake contest by a fake association with fake rules.

That about sums it up.

Now back to the real contest.

Mine's up. Getting the kind of response I expected, with the trickery and subject matter. It was a fun write, about 5 pages over the weekend.

The Luckiest Man in the World

Gonna be a controversial one. I think it has 18 comments already - include 2 by HarryInVA, riling him almost makes it all worthwhile.

Disclaimer

Because of the way this site works these figures will not be totally up-to-date. For a given story the score shown on the category page, the author's page, and the toplists page, can all be different. Also it appears that various pages update at different times of the day, sometimes quite infrequently.

Please do not PM me asking for more detailed information. I do not wish to skew contest results by giving a target for voting manipulation.

Bloody Hell TTT, I just finished reading your story, and I've got goose bumps all over. The 5 stars were easy, but I'm not going to get involved in commenting in LW. So I'll just tell you here that I thought it was great. But you're very naughty putting it in LW, that story belonged in Romance.

Tim, the problem sometimes lie in the fact that a story is earmarked for one category and gets put in another. After a while you just stick it in LW's to start with.

Oh, I second this. In fact, I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize for the rambling feedback you're about to get from me.

Thanks TimothyM, carlieplum and of course, one of my favorite commenters Annanova. I appreciate it.

I was naughty putting it in LW. I would have put it in Romance, but I thought it would give away the surprise reconciliation at the end. I'll take my licks.

Actually kind of fun to get lots of comments all over the place. And watch the commenters bicker between themselves. The story started with a horrid score but it's slowly crawling upward. I think it's about a 4.42 now - better than I'd expected, but not as good as I hoped. I really am a whore for those little Red "H"s.

Great stories already. Geronimo, Heyall, Ben Long, all to be expected.

I liked yours carlieplum, but I don't think Literotica's ready for a loving story about real people in a loving relationship. BTW, do those exercise's really work?

Gonna finish up reading the rest. Good luck to all.

sometimes surprises aren't needed, esp in a stroker... looking forward to reading it (unlike many, I'm an unabashed LW fanatic).

Mine's Up!

Against sound reason I've ventured back into The LW category. I'd really appreciate feedback if you get a chance to read it. I've enjoyed the ones I've read so far in this year's contest. I'll get to more of them soon.

Thanks.

You know what they say--write what you know. I'm not expecting to win, place, or show with my current entry or my other one (if I can finish it). I had fun writing it.

And heck yeah, those exercises work...

Mines taking a beating, but it is Loving Wife. Just happy to be part of the contest. I always like the roller coaster ride that comes along.

I know she was way behind. My last four stories/chapters took almost a week to post. First five days, then six. My Contest Entry was submitted late on Sunday, and was up first thing the next morning.

The New Stories pages daily entries was only taking about 2/3 of the page, this last one took the whole front page and a good ways into the second one. Definitely working overtime.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who had a five day posting time earlier this month. But I guess all the non-contest stories will now lag even more behind. Which is as it should be, Valentine stories should come first, and it's nice that they post almost immediately. Gives more incentive to submit I guess.
