Story Contest Archive

We couldn’t get the Viking (he was booked), so we’re going to get a Cowboy! We here at the All Human side of things would like to welcome you to the forum and the community by throwing a Fall Ericstravaganza!! Okay, maybe not an extravaganza, but still! We gonna do it up, country style!

The Summer of ’69 contest was such a groovy thing, man, that we had to follow their stellar example. This could be a hard act to follow…

Kyss: YEE HAW!! There ain’t nothin’ better than a tall drink of water in a stetson (Just ask Sookie in School Hard)…

We want your best ALL HUMAN Eric & Sookie COWBOY themed one shot! Give me a second while I wipe the drool away at the thought of Eric in a Stetson ridin’ a horse and shootin’ a six gun.

2. Must be ALL HUMAN. Must be COWBOY/WESTERN themed. Does not have to be old West themed; ie it can be present day as long as it’s all cowboy’d out.

Pretty awesome, huh? Yeah, we thought so too.

Kyss: Yee Haw! Slap my ass and call me Sookie! I just got confirmation the Twitter RP’s are in for winner’s story!

Second place will get something as well, we just haven’t recovered from the first place prize yet to decide what to give you. DOMO?

Kyss: I also wanted to mention YBG and I wanted to attach a charity to the contest but because of several issues beyond our control we didn’t get everything in place in time. But it’s okay because I was talking with @SookieBonTemps and she suggested Support Stacie! So along with the Grand Opening of the forum I would like to announce the very first charity the AH forum will support in the future.

Sometime after the holidays, prepare yourself for an Author Auction! Ever have a dream or a story you wanted to be told about Eric and Sookie or Eric and you? wink Well you will have your chance to see your idea come to life and all for an amazing cause! I will put up the links to the Support Stacie sites on the blog and my profile so if you are looking to start supporting Stacie now you can!!

Beta Volunteers:



(If you’d like to volunteer, shoot a message to us and we’ll add you)…

While brainstorming for the awesomesaucetasticness that is this Cowboy Eric All Human fic contest, it was hard to narrow down a contest name. Bask in the corny chees-a-rifficness that eventually lost out:

Eric & Sookie: The Wild West.
A Ho’ Down Country Sausage and Biscuits One Shot Challenge!!
Well slap my ass and call me Jake Gyllenhaal!
Little Coffin on the Prairie

Sookie’s Brokeback Eric

Kyss: WAIT!! You forgot this one YBG!! Sookie’s Grateful For That Gracious Plenty Fall Bounty Country Fair!! I know it’s to long but it’s true! It’s an awesome fair where you can buy jarred O’s and be a judge in the wet boxer shorts contest!

YBG: Is there, perhaps, a *looks left looks right* KISSING BOOTH? 😀

Kyss: Yes! There is even a tent where you can see the biggest GP in the world!!

ANY QUESTIONS!? Yes, we thought there might be. Feel free to send this account a message or pop over to the ALL HUMAN FORUMS and ask Youbettago or Kyss your query.

Everyone, SADDLE UP!!

~a & L

Just a quick note about the contest and it’s organizers Fan Fiction writers youbettago and Kyss Ericsson (aka LilBooth02) are the organizers of this contest. We are totes using this blog to pimp our contest and all the affiliated media sites the blog owns. Simba, Scoobs, ECBB (sawyersmine), and any other fan fic author who have contributed in anyway to this blog are not involved in the organizing or the judging of the contest. They are considered eligible FF writers and I expect them to submit a story if they want. Now go write peeps!!!

  1. […] Bonds Blog is holding an Eric-centric fanfiction contest with a Western theme. Up for grabs is the forthcoming bullet charm from Cadsawan, the Blood Bonds […]

  2. I want that bullet charm! Um can I ask
    1. Are we allowed to take some poetic license/liberalities with respect to Sookie and Eric’s personality/appearance/traits etc?
    2. Im sorry I’m such a nood but what does BETA mean?

  3. A Beta is your editor/spell/grammar checker. They help you find the little issues with your fic that you may have missed. Check out this link Interview W/ A Beta on how Betas work with writers.

    As far as how you see Eric and Sookie well it’s up to you. This is the all human world contest so the only thing I must stress is they all have to be human, they can have special powers like in I Need Your Love Tonight by Sawyersmine, but Eric, Pam and Bill need to breathe and chill in the sun. Many writers go off canon so I can’t see a reason to not spread your wings…..

    Hope this helps!
