Make that Tune

Take my Love, take my land…

Carry on my Wayward Son…

Great shows have great songs associated with them.  Well, I’d like a theme for this show.  So write something original, mix up a medley or even just scribble down some lyrics, and send them to spnverse at gmail (dotcom) by the end of January.

Winner(s) will get mp3’s of Mal’s Song (by Vixy & Tony) or any other Supernatural & Firefly related tracks of their choosing.

Save people.  Keep flying.

Episode 2 – Ten Little Passengers

Episode 2 is now live, guest starring Mark Sheppard!

I’ve also been adjusting the document names to more closely match tv episode numbers (so no, there’s not a hundred episodes you’re missing, but rather, season 1, episode #).  Episode 1 is down at the moment as I correct it to standardize the format with it.

Also, now that I’ve got more than one to this site, time to announce… summer submissions!

Yep, when the long hiatus comes ’round in the summer, I’d like to do more of these episodes, but it takes a bit for me to get one of these done.  Besides, both Supernatural and Firefly are collaborative efforts so in that spirit, if you enjoy this and want to add to the ‘Verse as it is, by all means please do so.  Then send the story to “spnverse” at gmail (dotcom).  I may need you to correct a few things to bring it all in line with canon so you’ll probably want to make it a monster of the week episode.  And don’t forget that we want to keep this at the same level of network airing times SPN & FF had so don’t go all HBO with the sex & swearing.

Hope we get to put out some awesome stories this summer (and episodes 3 & 4 at least get released before January 14th).  Happy hunting everyone!  Keep flying.

Costume Contest!

Now that the mid season Hellatus is upon us, episodes for this will be releasing and we’ll be doing a few contests to promote it.  (not super fancy prizes, we are a budget here, but hopefully something for everyone)

First up since it’s winter in the northern half of the planet, SewGeekAustin has agreed to donate this lovely hat to keep somebody warm.

A warm and toasty hat.

However we here in the ‘verse feel like you need a little something more in the good fight, so we’ll be having a Devil’s Trap pinned to it to make sure those pesky demons stay out of your head.

So what’s the contest?  Design some costumes!  The captain and doctor already have distinctive looks (described in the upcoming episodes) but we still need some “regular” designs for the rest of the crew.  You can draw it up, sew it up, or assemble it from scraps in your closet and do a “cosplay” pose & picture.  Heck you can even do it for the captain’s & doctor’s costumes and add in some additional flavors.  We’ll take submissions until January 13th (which means you need to email it in before midnight Jan 12th) and either announce the winner on the 14th, or begin voting if we get just too many awesome entries to decide.

“Rules” (more like guidelines)

  • Send your entry to “spnverse” at gmail. (dotcom)  You can also email there or leave a comment on this post if you have some questions or want some clarifications.
  • Style should be evocative of both Firefly and Supernatural both.  This is a crew living on the edge, of the edge.  Sometimes they have to choose between buying clothes, or bullets.
  • If you want to add a story to something (like how Dean’s coat belonged to his father), go ahead, though the editorial staff may have to make adjustments to it to make it fit within past or upcoming canon.
  • If you’ve already got the hat, but still want to participate, feel free, just let us know in your submission and we’ll work something out.

More contests coming as the hiatus drags on, so if clothes aren’t your thing, don’t worry, you’ll get a chance for more. 😉
