Summer fic contest!!!
« on: May 19, 2013, 10:09:40 pm »
Sweartoad has graciously accepted my proposition *nudgenudgewinkwink* to do another commission based on a scene from the winning fic. 

This is fairly open to time frames, but since there's only one prize I'd like to keep it rated PG13, or Fade to Black if you want to write romance so people don't get sidetracked by bikini smut.  You can make that an additional chapter elsewhere or something.  :P 
If you're looking for an idea because Summer is too generic - a day at the beach with the gang, a Mid-Summer festival (Am/Sic, or perhaps young Sic sneaking out?), or perhaps Sicarius surprising Amaranthe with an ice cream cone. 


Word count - 3000 words (with wiggle room, relax!)
Rating - PG13
Deadline will be June 30th.  That's six weeks away and should give everyone plenty of time to consider what they want to write about.  Also it's right before my birthday.   ;D ;D ;D ;D    (Yes, I know this is a long time.  Some people are in school, or finishing school, and some will very likely be going on vacations.  I just want to give everyone a chance!)
Voting will start July 1st, and close July 6th. 
Winner will be announced Sunday, July 7th.

Entries!  (please remember to upload them as a PDF)

So to confirm (due to those examples), it has to contain EE crowd, not Encrypted/Decrypted?
Amaranthe/Sicarius fangirl, who wonders why she has a fondness for fictional characters that she'd suspects she'd flee if she met 'em in real life.

It would simplify matters, but if you have a plot you're absolutely in love with, go for it.  They're in the same world, and about to become involved with the EE crew anyway.

I'm going to give a very restrained woot! to conserve precious oxygen.  there seems to be some kind of ghost bunny circling my brain so we'll see what it gets me.

Totally in on this. Still musing as to who the characters will be involved... I've been meaning to do a Goytha backstory fic, but that would probably be mostly OC so I'll probably hold that one back. Unless it bites me too hard, that is.

Put me where I'll see stars, so that I can see you
And I'll soar like a leaf on the wind

Just a bump to remind people that the deadline is now 4 weeks away.

Just wanted to offer free proofreading (I do this freelance) for any fanfic. I do not have a creative bone in my body, so I'm just doing my part to keep us all going til FiB2.

Also I'll get my hands on it sooner I'm a wonderful, selfless human being.

I haven't even started :o I'm still trying to decide if it's worth it not writing about the EE gang directly.

Do we have a contest submission thread for this one yet?  I have a niggling little plot bunny that might just fit.

I was just going to suggest this thread, honestly.  There hasn't been a lot of chatter, and it keeps the whole thing together. 
I can edit the original post to add the stories once they've been submitted.


Would you rather have a separate thread?

6 of one half dozen of the other.  Here keeps things together.  New makes it easier to find for others later.  Either works.  I think it's your call on this one.
