Author has written 4 stories for Twilight.

So, a just the other day, literally, coldplaywhore was drunkenly tweeting during the Olympics opening ceremony and decided she wanted to read an Olympics-ward. Thus, this contest was born.

So here's the deal... write an Olympics-based (either Winter or Summer) TwiFic. It can be historical (maybe based around the Munich Tragedy or early greek olympics), comedy, drama, romance, angst... whatever you want, as long as it's centered around the Olympics. You can write an Irishward, an Italian Jasper or even an Estonian Emmett. This is your time to be creative with the countries, people. Your characters can be athletes, coaches, trainers, or even some of the awesome volunteers during the opening / closing ceremonies, just base it at the Olympics. Any questions?
