Voyager's "Blink of an Eye" would work too, right?? The doctor lives on the surface for years but it's only like ten minutes on Voyager.
It would-and so would Living Witness. But I would prefer no one touch that particular episode-I have a large-scale project in the works that plays off of that. However-its a free country(Internet, whatever) so y'all do what you want. Beowulf , huh? Didn't Devil In the Dark play off of that tale?

Gibraltar-who's to say you don't have a character that it would work with? It doesn't have to be your main characters.........

Geez, I might as well reenter my last entry, and we all see how well it worked out for me the last time...

Re: September 08 Challenge-The Saga

I've got an idea for an entry for this year, partly inspired by the Myriad Universe books that have been put out.

I hope your entry is for this month-I'd hate to wait all year for a possible MU entry. I love that stuff!

Re: September 08 Challenge-The Saga

is that 20,000 characters including spaces or not?

and a fixed word count would be a hell of a lot more helpful than a 'character count'...

Re: September 08 Challenge-The Saga

I use word. When posting Lost Kingdom it gave me an error message saying "Exceeds 20,000 character limit". Basically, if it fits in a single post its fine, if it bleeds into a second its too long. Consider it a challenge in creative editing...

Seriously, I just barely went over 3500 words for the story so I think you can post up to that.

Re: September 08 Challenge-The Saga

Damn it anyway.

I have the perfect idea for this month's challenge. Not only would it make a good story, but it would plug an annoying hole in canon.

But the well of inspiration has run dry once again.

Looks like I'll have to pass on this one.

Month ain't over yet! (I hope - I'm still trying to write mine!)

I'd hate like hell for Calhoun to win. Um, by default, I mean. Surely someone has a saga in them?

Hey, Mistral! You don't actually specify a closing date. How long have I got?
