Brothers Apart Contest 2016!

Hello all followers and fans!

From January 1st, 2016 to March 31st, 2016, 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 Universe. 

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 March 31st.

Rules:

  1. Must be based on Brothers Apart. Canon brothers will not be accepted 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…) 
  2. You may create an entry based on one of the various AU’s (Brothers Lost, Brothers Together, ect…) or create your own AU, but if it is canon brothers, it is not Brothers Apart, and therefore not accepted, unless they’re interacting with the BA bros. 

  3. This contest is run alongside the same contest on my deviantart profile. You may enter into each contest, but must have two different entries.
  4. Everyone is welcome to enter except for @nightmares06, since I will be running the contest. 😉
  5. You may include any OC’s from the stories in any artwork or writing (i.e. Walt, Nixie, Kara…)

    or create your own OC’s to interact with them! It’s fun to do!

  6. For the tumblr contest, you may upload your entry to tumblr, fanfiction.net or archiveofourown.com. 
  7. Please tag @brothersapart in any tumblr entries. 
  8. For fanfiction.com or archive of our own entries, please send a message with the location of your entry to brothersapart.spn@gmail.com so it can be displayed on tumblr.
  9. For the deviantart contest, 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. All deviantart entries must be submitted to the deviantart site.
  10. Each entry will be displayed on the Brothers Apart tumblr, and the deviantart entries will also be displayed in the deviantart journal.
  11. If you want to change your entry at any time for either contest, please message me through the BA email or a note on DA.
  12. If enough entries are received for either contest (three art entries and three writing entries), I will split that contest further and have writing and art as their own separate entries with their own grand prize. If this happens, there will be an announcement on either the deviantart journal or the tumblr profile, whichever one is affected. This means there could be as many as four grand prizes!
  13. The prize is something that must be mailed to you (and you’ll find out what it is soon!) so you must be comfortable sharing your address and name. All personal data shared with me will never be shared with anyone else and will be deleted after the package is shipped.
  • If there are any questions, please ask through the tumblr, deviantart or email!

Last year’s contest entries.

Prompts Open for Brothers Together!

Just a friendly reminder that if anyone has any prompts for Oscar and his adventures with the brothers, they are currently open! Remember, the more prompts and ideas we get for them, the longer the story will go for before it concludes. All rules for standard prompts apply, and you can find them here.

To catch up on the storyline so far, check out the series: Brothers Together.

Asks and submissions are open as always for all AU’s!

Considering their run of luck, it’s a definite possibility. Dean takes every precaution around the room when they’re alone, including salt lines around the room and sleeping with his colt under his pillow. Sam doesn’t go far from Dean at night, sleeping on the pillow next to where his brother is.

And most nights, Dean hugs the pillow he’s on.

If anything happens, they’ll have to deal with it as best they can.

Currently, he’s off on a hunt and gave the brothers a timeline of about a month before he returns. He’ll be seen again.

It would be hard and ill-advised to keep secrets like Oscar’s people away from him, but they could only risk it if they knew the little guys in the walls were safe. They can’t risk Oscar’s secret lightly. Considering his son is one of them, John wouldn’t be likely to hunt them.

And if he tried, Dean would stand against him.

BT Dean height

I think BT Dean being taller than canon Dean would make sense honestly now that it’s mentioned, since lack of good nutrition/ food really does stunt growth. So now that Dean doesn’t have to sacrifice nearly as much for Sam, maybe he would grow that extra inch or two.

The difference between Brothers Together and Brothers Apart will be that Sam will actually be growing up with Dean. So instead of going from one extreme to the other like in the original story, it’s going to happen gradually. Sam will adjust as they both grow and it’ll feel normal to him to see Dean at his adult size by the time they get there. In this AU they’re going to be more adjusted to each other than they are in BA from the start.

Oh, I wish I had the time. Sadly, most of my time is actually consumed by either writing Brothers Apart or by work. The prompts get done when I’m frozen on my story, and I wouldn’t be able to make a complete storyline for Dean Rescues Sam between all of that.

In fact, the only reason I’ve been able to put together a complete story for Hershey Kisses and Salt Lines is because of my cowriter. Without @neonthewrite it never would have come this far. Writing together helps keep the creative ideas flowing… and of course, the prompts we get for the story! So give her some thanks for being such a huge help! 🙂
