Announcing Brave New Worlds: AU fic contest by Scimitar Smile

As many people no doubt have heard by now, a new season of the Fullmetal Alchemist anime is slated for production; and it will not be a direct sequel of the first anime. Together with the original series and the manga, that brings us to three distinct versions of canon, to say nothing of the many novels, games, OAVs, and other spin-offs.

We at scimitarsmile would like the 2009 Green Lion to celebrate the new series, and welcome the new fans who will certainly be drawn by it to the fandom, with an Alternate Universe fanfic contest. We encourage authors, both newbies and old hands, to try their hands at developing new universes and new settings, new plots and new rules, whole new playgrounds for your stories to run.

Brave New Worlds:
FMA Alternate Universe Fic Contest

For this year's Green Lion Contest, running from Jan 20th to April 20th, the Scimitar Smile archive is hosting a contest for FMA Alternate Universe Fanfics! Any fanfics, old and new, that meet the AU critera can be submitted to the contest; you can even submit more than one. As well as a chance to bring out the best of the FMA author communities, this contest is also offering both cash and art prizes.

If you're interested in writing or submitting, or even reading or judging for this contest, or if you'd like to read more about the rules and prizes, check out the contest page at Scimitar Smile!
