Deal breaker:

I expect every paragraph, every sentence, every word to be ruthlessly scrutinized and agonized over for many hours. That said, no Furby stories. Well, actually, if it was a zombie apocalypse, or an Evil Dead type story, then maybe. Even if it’s a Furby Pinocchio mash-up story where, instead of his beak growing when he lies, his whole body grows and he ends up destroying downtown Minneapolis, it might could work. It all depends how you write it.
