07:07 pm - OEAM Big Bang signups
Here we go, folks!


What is a Big Bang?
A Big Bang is a challenge in which you have 4 months to write a 20,000 word story. You have a second choice - a 10,000 word Mini Bang.
For those of you not writers, there will also be an art challenge to create art for the stories in the challenge.
Beta readers will also be called to help get those stories ready for posting!

What fandoms can we write?
This is the list:
Arthurian Legend
Babylon 5 (all)
DC Comic Universe
Dr. Who
Legend of the Seeker (TV series and The Sword of Truth books)
Marvel Universe
Pirates of the Caribbean
Real Person Fiction
Queer as Folk
Sherlock Holmes - all
Southern Vampire Mysteries/True Blood (NEW)
Star Trek (all)
Stargate (any)
Other: Fiction about fandoms that actors in the main fandom, Tolkien, are in. For example, Sean Bean was in Game of Thrones so that fic counts as well.
Real Person Fiction (of listed fandom actors, writers, etc.)

Fandom: LOTR
BigBang or MiniBang: Big Bang
Beta: I have one.
Summary: Erestor is Sauron's son - he is half elf and half Maia. When he falls in love with an elf woman Sauron wreaks a terrible revenge that affects Erestor for thousands of years.

Erestor escapes Mordor and finds his way to Imladris where he is kept under surveillance but assists in giving information to Elrond about the enemy. Erestor falls in love with Glorfindel but cannot sail with him - he knows Sauron will rise again, even if it takes thousands of years, and he is the one to kill him.

Erestor tracks Sauron to Stalinist Russia. He is arrested and thrown into prison and then a gulag. But things start to change. Erestor finds the powers that Sauron took from him are coming back and he takes it as a sign that the time has come to kill his father.

The story ends with an explosive confrontation (no details because it is a surprise) and Erestor is finally able to meet again with Glorfindel.

No. I have a live in one. I also do my own artist work. But I wouldn't mind being a beta for someone else. The only thing I will beta is LOTR. Thanks Alex. I have been busy trying to get another story done, which it is now, before I tackled my own BigBang.
