March Challenge: What Makes a Man

Thanks to all of you who voted for me! And now, for the new challenge:

Every great officer, captain, commander, admiral, or even villain, has the moment that defined them and made them into who we know them as. The moment could be good, an accomplishment that set them up above the rest, or a tragedy that put them on a dark path. Whatever the case may be, in under 5,000 words, any character, any era, any universe, tell us what really made them who they are.

Entries are due by midnight (Central/Chicago time) on March 31st.

Enjoy!

Re: March Challenge: What Makes a Man

This one I want to answer. Baby is wiping me out-but this has been growing in my mind for a while. Someone asked, in my first Seleya posting, how the captain of a science vessel got a Challenger-class. Hmmm....

Re: March Challenge: What Makes a Man

This gives me the perfect opportunity to write Astar's story better than I did once before, but I'll have to see if I have time to write it.

Re: March Challenge: What Makes a Man

Though I'm not entirely certain I'll have the time to finish this in time...I thik I'll give this one a go!

I've never done a fanfic contest before.

I will say, for this one, I'll set the stage for a brief deviation from my "Ezri Dax Tales". Sorry...but the character's not her.

Also...I must say, you could say this tale's inspired by Nerys's "A Stone's Throw Away." Or at least, the "traumatic memory" narration style was inspired by her tale.

Wish me luck!
