September Challenge: Secrets

Thanks, TheLoneRedshirt, for an awesome topic last month! And now, for this month's...

Everyone has a secret, and it is your job to tell us about one. Whether its a secret among friends, a web of family secrets, a secret shared among crewman, or the secret of an entire race--you decide. In 4000 words, spin a tale about a secret. Perhaps how it was formed, an ill effect it has, or how it strains a friendship. It's up to you.

All entries are due by September 29 2010, 11:00 pm Central Time.
Any and all characters are welcome, canon or not, any universe, and any era you choose.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Complaints?

OH, MAN...I have the PERFECT event in the Sigils universe for this.

If I can get my plot together in time, really understand HOW it happened, it would be wonderful! I just hope I can come up with it in time...

Re: September Challenge: Secrets

I'm tempted to try my hand at one of these ... I already have an idea.

I've never done this before, do we just post it in the thread, send a copy to the OP, what?

I can't enter this. No one in the Tesseract series has any secrets.

Usually you give the story its own thread and post a link in the contest thread.

Interesting, simple and direct. Hmmm....

Hmm.. sounds interesting. Mystery, intrigue, danger, maybe a little romance. Sounds like a good mission, should you choose to accept it.

Of course, Starfleet intelligence will disavow any knowledge of you or your mission should you be captured.

Re: September Challenge: Secrets

Blast, I've just realised (after reading this challenge for the first time), that I might actually have an idea for this.

If I go just get over my innate laziness and get it written...

How strict is the word count ceiling? Is there any sort of wiggle room?

September Challenge: Secrets

I present, for the first time, an entry for a fanfic comp! Though I ought to qualify this entry.

Although it is newly written for this competition, it's an extract of my ongoing story 'STAR TREK : ANGEL - SAVING HISTORY" which you can find on this very board!

I had intended something along this line for the character in question, but the comp sparked my imagination and here it is. If it doesn't qualify on those grounds I understand.

Background for those who aren't following the story so far:

The four Starfleet crew aboard the Nightingale class runabout USS Blackwell have found themselves stranded in the 21st century mere days before the nuclear holocaust which was the climax of Earth's third world war.


Star Trek : Angel - Secrets (an extract from a forthcoming chapter of "SAVING HISTORY Pt II")

Re: September Challenge: Secrets

Another question: one entry per person, or can we submit multiple?
