: OEAM, AO3, Faerie.Author’s Note
: Thank you to ignoblebard
for reading the drafts.
The Russian part of this story was researched using web sources and several books, detailing personal memories and historical perspectives - any errors are mine alone.Summary
: Erestor was raised by Sauron to be a good soldier and a good son but after a devastating betrayal, Erestor is determined to get his revenge... no matter how long it takes.
Thousands of years later Erestor has found his quarry and confronts him in an explosive battle to the death.
“And as the captains gazed south to the Land of Mordor, it seemed to them that, black against the pall of cloud, there rose a huge shape of shadow, impenetrable, lightning-crowned, filling all the sky. Enormous it reared above the world, and stretched out towards them a vast threatening hand, terrible but impotent: for even as it leaned over them, a great wind took it, and it was all blown away, and passed; and then a hush fell.”</center>
Those who watched knew in their hearts that Sauron was gone forever, never again to exist in the lands of Middle-earth, his power vanquished, and his spirit scattered by Lord Manwë's winds to the four corners of the earth. Their hearts gladdened to the certainty that he could never reform. They had won the war and peace would be everlasting. But they were wrong.
Of their number, only one elf was not so easily fooled, for he knew the enemy better than anyone.
Hope was all he had left, but even that was in short supply...

|alexcat||10:41 am - 2016 OEAM Big Bang: Dawn of Hope (Star Wars) |
Title: Dawn of Hope
Disclaimer: I do not own them, nor do I profit from their use.
Artist: Wendy Game
Characters: Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Owen Lars, Beru Lars, Biggs Darklighter
Archive: OEAM, Ao3
Author’s Note: *See below
Spoilers: Not really
Summary: The story of Luke Skywlaker's childhood.
Thanks to Larry for the beta read. Thanks to Wendy Game for the wonderful cover.
Just a few little explanations and such:
Some things are from Canon and some are from what Disney now calls Legend.
A T-16 Skyhopper looks like the toy flyer that Luke is playing with at the first of A New Hope, but for our purposes, it is smaller, sleeker, more like a land rocket.
Luke’s pals were all in A New Hope originally but were cut before release. You can see them if you go to Youtube and search for Star Wars: A New Hope deleted scenes. You can also see more of Tatooine.
Most of the Luke stories are made up though the bit about water thieves is based on a Golden Book tale of Luke as a child.
There is no Zahn Range on Tatooine, but my own nod to Timothy Zahn, the Star Wars novelist who gave us the Thrawn trilogy. Grand Admiral Thrawn was such a wonderful character that Disney kept him when they threw out the rich canvas of Star Wars canon already created.
Thanks to George Lucas, for saving my life with your Jedi more times than I can count.

|alexcat||01:09 pm - TO ALL WRITERS, ARTISTS AND BETAS: Extension and newsiness! |
This summer has gotten by me way too quickly and by that, I mean that my OEAM Big Bang is NOT DONE yet! Soooooo... I am going to postpone posting them until October 15. That will give you all a chance to get more revisions and such or to finish the damned thing like me. When you read this, answer so I know you got it! All set with betas and artists? If not, contact them and me both so we can get you sorted.
Good luck, my pretties!
July 31st, 2016
|alexcat||04:15 pm - Are you done yet? |
Today is the day you're supposed to be done. Are you? I'm not. Let's not sweat it yet though. Since we actually have a very small group doing this, I think this gives us some extra time. We have 2 months from tomorrow until posting day starts. Most of us should be well on our way with ideas and with some of the writing. I think you all should be sorted with a beta AND an artist at this time. If not, let me know and we'll figure it out.
Sooo here is how it's going to go:
Since we do have our betas and artists already, I am going to let you work up until posting time. I will be letting you choose your day to post by the end of August. I will, however, need you to keep in touch here so we know that we are all on the same page. I will post an update/checkin thread every week and if you've got issues or just want some encouragement, that's the place to put them.
This is this week's update.
So how is it going and are we all sorted out now?

|alexcat||06:56 pm - Help needed |
We need some help for the 2016 OEAM Big Bang.
We have 11 writers still in. We have only one artist signed up so far and I think she will do two, if need be but that still leaves us 7-8 artists. If you are an artist of any kind, please consider signing up. Your work does not have to be elaborate; it just needs to please the writer. It can be hand drawn, digital work or graphics. All work. Go here to look over the summaries: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/44960.html?view=268960#t268960
These people have artists:
If you want to sign up, go here: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/47522.html Please tell us which writer you want to work with. (And maybe a second choice).
We also need around 5 beta readers. The link in the 2nd paragraph will take you to the authors and summaries.
These people have betas:
If you want to sign up to beta, go here: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/46109.html Please tell us which writer you want to work with and again, maybe a second choice.
Thank you all so much!
July 17th, 2016
|alexcat||06:08 pm - So tell me again, who needs a beta? |
I am wrangling the list here and I need to know how many betas I need and will any of you beta for other writers?
|alexcat||03:14 pm - PLEASE READ! Still needing to check in and other IMPORTANT STUFF!|
Okay... we need check-ins from these people:
I know Binky said she was nearly done but I need to hear from the other two.
We need some more artists! If you know any0one, send them our way and if you can do art, please sign up for it.
This is the rest of the schedule:
July 1 – July 31, 2016 – Artist signups
July 31, 2016 – Writing time ends, sign up for posting day.
August 15, 2016 – Drafts due to mods for distribution to artists
August 16, 2016 – Editing
September 15, 2016 – Beta’d stories due
October 1, 2016 – All work should be done and posting will begin
I am thinking that as along as you can work out things with your beta and your artist, then you can use the time up until posting day to write, BUT we still need some progress reports as we go along. I think we have 11 people still in. I need to know who has a beta or who needs one, if you have an artist or are doing your own or of we need to find you one.
I will be sending this one out to all participants as well.
