Our first place winner as determined by our judges scoring was our only entry submitted by a new author and we look forward to following her as she continues to delight and entertain us with her version of Eric and all our favourite SVM characters:

Born to Die: Memoirs of a Viking by BatsOut

as winner will be featured in a write up and review of her story by nycsnowbird on The Sookieverse Blog. Links will be posted on the profile as well as on the contest blog, keep your eyes peeled.

After a tie in the second round of voting, we have two public vote winners with an equal 34% of the vote.

Your two winning choices perfectly illustrate the diversity we hoped to showcase in this amazing fandom:

First Blood, Kinda Sorta by Suki59

And

Born to Die: Memoirs of a Viking by brand new author BatsOut.

The second place winner in our public vote as well as our 2nd place choice in the judges scoring was our only collaboration!

CONTEST INFO:

Give us your best story about Eric Northman’s first kill. As a vampire out of control with hunger, a human at war, a surgeon who loses a patient on the table. You tell us! Creativity is encouraged, think outside the box!

If you are a first time writer looking for a reason to pick up that pen- here’s your chance.

If you are a seasoned writer who has been pillaged by the Viking before- show us what you got.

Or if you are only new to contest writing let this be your first effort.

Aug 25th- in honour of Skars birthday we are pleased to announce the gifts we want to pass on to you and other news:

Prizes:

1st place winners in the public vote will have their choice of a Merlotte's or Fangtasia t-shirt.

2nd place winners will receive an original banner for their winning story created by sapfirerose. Check out her blog for all your FF needs: mysvmaddiction (dot) blogspot (dot) com.

And of course all winners and those given an honourable mention will have bragging rights for ages to come!

Looking forward to reading all your entries...

Contest Rules:
All entries must feature Eric Northman as the main character, but all others additions are up to you.

All entries must be a new one-shot (which can be extended or added to after the contest), between 3,500 and 12,000 words.

Entries must be BETA’d, if you need help finding one check out the thread in the Sookieverse forum, or search beta reader profiles by fandom. Don’t be shy, they won’t bite.

M rated stories may only be authored by those over 18 yrs of age.

All genres and styles will be included (AH/AU/Canon).

You may submit more than one story, but are limited to two entries, this includes 1 entry as a single author and 1 as a collaboration.

If working within a historical time frame please research for the best accuracy, we are giving you plenty of time, so we mean business.

All entries must be submitted by the contest deadline of Sept 27- 12:00am mountain time.

This contest is anonymous and therefore you may NOT post the completed work to your own profile or any other site until the contest has ended. This is a blind voting process.

A story will be disqualified if the author does not remain anonymous and shares their identity, hints which is theirs. etc. Want to keep this as fair as possible.

Be creative, but careful with subject matter: any story that glamorizes rape, incest, adultery, unnecessary violence pedophilia, etc. will be considered inappropriate and will not be included for consideration. If your story requires a warning to readers please include one in the headings.

All entries must contain a disclaimer, (Charlaine Harris and any other author must be given credit for the ownership of all SVM characters).

Though this is not an exclusive contest for first time authors we do encourage you to get your fangs wet on this one.

Should the number of entries in each category of writers allow for it two categories will be considered for judging and votes, one for virgin and near virgin writers and one for those who have been pillaged by the Viking: the top from each will be awarded. One will be decided by judges’ choice and the other by public vote.

Headers must include:

Make sure your document is the way you’d like it to appear when posted, as we will not be making any edits for you. What you send is what we post.

Promotion:
Though you cannotpimp your own fic exclusively we highly encourage tweeting, blogging, and posting to bring readers to all the contest entries on either the blog or FF.net account. Please check often for sample fics from some helpful authors. If you tweet, it should be for the contest as a whole, not for any specific entry, to be completely fair to all entrants. More established authors looking to alert their loyal followers to the contest (without giving away their fic) are welcome to post a “chapter” with all the contest details above on their profile to garner interest in all the entries. It’s fun to have your followers try to guess your voice/style out of all the submissions.
