So, apparently new episodes of the gates are not coming forth as soon as many of us had hoped. In the mean time, let's have a little fun entertaining ourselves.
Welcome to the gate_bitextual novel blurb challenge!
What's a novel blurb challenge?
Well, the idea is to write a short summary of a longer fic, just like you'd see on the back of a published novel. The twist is that these stories don't exist. (Not yet, anyway.) Maybe it's something you're working on, and you want to tantalize us with a glimpse of what's to come. Maybe it's a story you'd love to write, but you know you'll never get around to it. Maybe you made it up right off the cuff to share with us here.
Or maybe it's the story you've been dreaming of someone else writing, and you want to put the idea out for someone to grab onto.
Whatever your inspiration, the idea is to have fun. This is a bit of wish fulfillment for everybody. Whether it's romance or horror, something that could be an episode of the show or a complete AU, it's all welcome.
1) Comment with your blurb on this post. If you happen to get crazy and write a huge story (or create a giant piece of art), post it elsewhere and then add a link to this post. (Remember the new 'tacky' feature? Stick one here and you can be notified whenever someone adds something new.) Feel free to do as many as you'd like.
2) Please, no spoilers (or rumored spoilers) for the second half of SG-1 season 10 or Atlantis season 3. Spoiler-free speculation is fine, however.
3) Since this is a community for het and slash both, mentions of het and slash in your blurb are very, very welcome! However, since this is such a short thing and it might be difficult to work pairings into the blurb, feel free to post whatever strikes your fancy. Even if it's gen. ;)
4) If you really would like to offer up your idea for an author to take, please indicate that in the comment. Otherwise, we'll assume that the idea is still yours, and thus off-limits to everyone else.
5) Pimp far and wide!
6) Have fun!
