Ok so basically I don't think that Bud and Sam get enough attention and since they are both due to leave I came up with this competition.
The competition is to write a fic about Bud and Sam. It's pretty simple and can be a one-shot or a multi-chapter. The genre can be anything you want e.g. romance, friendship, humour ect. Here are some ideas for plots/ situations:
Bud has had a fall out with Jennie and seeks a shoulder to cry on and a place to stay, so naturally he turns to Sam.
Sam is injured during an investigation and is hospitalised.
Bud never met his wife and never married her. (possibility of a relationship)
There will be prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd and I shall choose the winner based on the one I like best, that really grasps the characters and makes me laugh, cry or whatever the intention is. Please if you wish to enter just put in the summery "BOP Sam/Bud fic competition" so I know whether to consider it or not. This competition shall close on the 31st of August and I shall announce the winner about a week after that. Please enter my competition and good luck to those who do!
