The contest has ended and results are posted! Thank you to everyone for taking part!
From January 10th, 2019 to May 18th, 2019, there is a contest running for Brothers Apart!
All art mediums are welcome, but the art must be based off of one of the stories within the Brothers Apart Multiverse.
Literature is accepted, so feel free to enter in any story entries you want. The stipulation is if it is a multi-part story, all parts must be up by May 18th.
Contest entries can be found here.
There are some big changes this year in both prizes and rules!
- Must be based on the Brothers Apart multiverse. Canon brothers will not be accepted unless they are dealing with Celeste’s curse victims and neither will the stories I have written that are not related to the AU. (An Ounce of Courage, Reversal of Fate, The Comeback Kid, Afraid, ect…)
- You may create an entry based on one of the various AU’s (Brothers Lost, Brothers Consulted, ect…) or create your own AU, but it must in some way connect to the Brothers Apart multiverse.
- This year there will be one contest and we’ll start with three winners (which will increase if enough interest is shown). Each contestant may submit up to two entries.
- Everyone is welcome to enter except for @nightmares06, since I will be running the contest. 😉 That includes betas and cowriters.
- You may include any OCs from the stories in any artwork or writing or create your own OCs to interact with them! It’s fun to do!
- Each entry must be uploaded for viewing online. This is not site specific, but it must be a publicly displayed work.
- Please tag @brothersapart in any tumblr entries. If the entry doesn’t get reblogged to brothersapart, I might not have seen it! Let me know.
- For fanfiction.com, archive of our own or other website entries, please send a message with the location of your entry to email@example.com so a link to it can be displayed on tumblr for everyone to see.
- For the deviantart entries, send a note to nightmares06 with the entry to ensure that it is added to the contest journal. Also provide a link to the contest journal in the information section for the entry.
- Each entry will be displayed on the Brothers Apart tumblr, wordpress site, and on nightmares06′s deviantart homepage.
- If you want to change either of your entries at any time for either contest, please message me through the BA email or a note on DA.
- There will be three prizes! One grand prize and two first prizes!
- One of the first place prizes will be decided by a poll, giving everyone a chance to vote for their favorite!
- If there are any questions, please ask through the tumblr, deviantart or email!
Update 3/28/19: All entries can be found here!
Due to recent circumstances, the prizes have changed for this year.
- Early access to several chapters of a future story, to be determined at the end of the contest (choices will be offered depending on what has posted already, and what is written)
- 2 sneak peeks of future Brothers Apart multiverse stories, both angst and cutes.
The Grand Prize winner will also receive a special 2000 word short story, written by nightmares06 in the Brothers Apart universe from a prompt given by the winner!
–Early access to a future story can be swapped out for a copy of Bowman of Wellwood, if anyone is interested in seeing Bowman Leafwing’s background with Jacob Andris, Bobby Loran and Chase Lisong. For this option, you must be willing to provide a mailing address to @nightmares06.

Contest! It’s finally here! 😀
Question. For literary pieces, can we use Archive of Our Own to host them?
Absolutely! I love archive of our own, it’s probably my favorite sites to have stories posted to
Great! Thanks for the quick response, too.
In case of a multi-parter, is it alright if I post it in waves (a chapter a week for example) as long as all parts are done by the deadline?
Additionally, does it need to include the Winchesters or will other AU OCs suffice?
Yep, there is no story length minimum or maximum, it can be as many or as few chapters as you want! We’ve had winners that write a one part story, and then winners that wrote long adventures. The story can be posted at any rate so long as it’s complete by the end.
Other AU OCs are fine, it’s recommended but not required to have the Winchesters at least mentioned in the story, since the AUs tend to center around them.
