Round 4 Rules & Instructions  
Welcome to Round 4 of the Ryan & Esposito ficathon!

Prizes:
Winner – Season 4 DVD (when released).

Second place – Live Journal gift tokens.
Third place – 2 month paid account on Live Journal.

Rules:
1) The story must be written specifically for this competition but may be posted elsewhere (as long as it is submitted here first).
2) You must have signed up - you can do this at any point prior to submitting your entry.
3) Any rating is allowed.
4) Must be more than 3000 words. Multiple chapters are encouraged.
5) Other ships and characters are encouraged, but the development of Ryan & Esposito's relationship must be one of the main focuses. A Castle/Beckett fiction with Ryan/ Esposito as the secondary thread of the story would be allowed.
6) Story must show the development of Ryan & Esposito’s romantic relationship.
7) You may submit as many stories as you like.
8) Everything else is up to you!

Submitting An Entry:
This entry talks you through how to submit your entry to the competition after having written your story.

1) Make a new entry and fill in the following form:

This is for fun, so if you get anything wrong it doesn't matter! I will probably be adding some author tags when you have posted anyway.

If you have multiple chapters in your story, please feel free to post them in separate entries.
