Separate contests, more winners. One grand prize between both contests. I do it because it’s how I want to run the contest.
If you end up wanting to do a story, I know at least one of the writers that I read on DA translates from a second language. You’re more than welcome to join in. And the contest is open to fanart as well, and any skill level. Otherwise enjoy the new stories!
I wouldn’t feel comfortable selling a work of fanfiction, so currently the only way to get a copy is to win the contest.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
I feel the same about writing. It cheers me up on long days at work and before I started writing at all, I would spend most of my days depressed. Now I’m cheerful most of the time and just deal with anxiety that flares up from time to time.
Don’t be afraid to enter! All skill levels are welcome, and I won’t be biased towards how good your layout is, that’s for sure. This is about having fun and writing for the series the way you see it, or what you envision for it.
Everyone makes mistakes, you should have seen me trying to edit the stories for the books. My own stuff makes me cringe some days, and I really hope all that work was worth it. I’d love to see what you come up with!
Oh, and @neonthewrite was scared to write Sam and Dean during the contest last year. Even after all this time, she’s still scared to write the brothers. So you’re never alone in being nervous.
(I’ve been stuck on just mobile before, I know just how you feel)
The only stipulation is that it be BA oriented, which means the Celeste’s curse is present in the story. I’ve always stuck with the Trails West for the stories I’ve done, but she could always find the brothers at other motels. Go nuts with it!
I guess we’ll all find out!
Of course! I’d love to see what you come up with for the contests! Send the note on DA or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the link to your contest entry, and I’ll reblog it to the tumblr. That way all entries are easy to locate for the end of the contest.
Prize announcement is on January 21st, so stay tuned to see what you’ll win!
Yes, there are two contests.
The first one will run through deviantart. All details can be found here. The entries must be submitted through that website with a link to the contest journal provided in the deviation.
The second contest is run through tumblr, for those that do not have a deviantart. Last year my contest was only on deviantart, but since then the fanbase of the story has expanded and it would be unfair to leave anyone out of a chance to win. All details for the tumblr contest can be found here, and the entries are accepted on tumblr, fanfiction.net, and archive of our own.
Each contest has the same grand prize, and if three writing entries and three art entries are received for either, that contest will have two grand prizes, one for each category.
You can enter into both contests, but you must have a different entry for each. All art mediums welcome, so long as it relates to Brothers Apart or any of its AU’s!
