    So who doesn't love an epic crossover??

    It came about that I am running the avatar contest in three separate forums this time around, so I thought it would be fun to use the same theme in each one, similar to the Destination: Moon crossover in the Before Times of 2019. Interestingly, each of the preceeding contests in the three forums ended as ties, so I decided to play with that, and the theme for this contest is The Ties that Bind, specifically referring in this case to the ties of matrimony. (Since we are at the beginning of the traditional "wedding season", this is doubly appropriate!)

    Your entries should depict a married couple in any SF&F media (movies, television, comics or video games). They should depict couples who are currently married: not previously married, nor planning to be married. If their marital status changed over the course of the story, then the image should be taken from when they were married. As well, both members of the couple should appear in the image.

    Standard avatar contest rules apply: maximum image size of 200 x 200 pixels, and a maximum file size of 1 MB. And of course the entries must be SFW. Each person may enter up to two avatars. The contest will be open for about a week; I am planning to put the poll up next Sunday.

    As an example, here is my first entry:

    If you are interested, please consider entering the other two contests:

    Television & Media (non-SF&F)
    Real Life

    Many thanks go to my co-winner in the last SF&F contest, @Kai "the spy" , for graciously allowing me to run the next one.

    Have fun! :techman:
