“This is Mystic Falls. Nothing bad ever happens here.”
THE PROPOSAL: You guys want a story/fanfic to go with SoN. This is how we go about getting it.
HOW THIS WORKS: Like an actual television show, Servants of Nature is now looking to put together a writing staff that will create 22 works of fiction “episodes” that will comprise one (1) full season of SoN.
Like an actual television show, members of the staff will be responsible for creating a series of connecting one-shots/”episodes” which not only explore this AU version of Mystic Falls, but also builds on this world that we’ve created for Bonnie, Melissa, and company. From the beginning, we’re telling the story of our two heroines, the relationships with their family, new friends, enemies, and allies in this small town.
And like any televison show, there will drama, twist and turns, cliff-hangers and guest apperances by various characters that are not a part of the main cast.
The goal is to create this whole new world in which Bonnie and Melissa fans can immerse themselves in. If this is something that excites YOU as a writer, then consider applying for a position on staff.
HOW TO APPLY: Currently, SoN is only looking for eight (8) writers to fill positions on staff. Those intrested in applying must complete and submit the application form provided.
If you are hired, you will messaged with further instructions.
This is not a “first come, first serve” position. SoN is looking to get writers who are not only talented and creative, but also those who work well with others. Though the plan is to allow writers the opportunity to create their own ”episodes”, obviously they will be working on a specific outline that we, as a group, agreed upon to shape the season.
This a collaborative project. Though there will be a “showrunner” who has the option of final say on storylines, the staff of 9 (8 writers + 1 showrunner) makes it so that majority rules when a potential storyline is proposed a member of the group.
A few things to consider before you apply:
- Only apply if you’re committed and have the time to actually write your oneshot(s)/”episode(s)”.
- At the moment a chat room/ or message board (most likely option) will be our writing room and meetings will be mandatory.
I hope to hear from you guys! A lot of people have been wondering if a fanfic is ever going be written for the particular storyline, and sadly, I’ve had to say no because I don’t have to the time to compose a quality, multi-chapter fanfic. And even though there are scripts for SoN, they’re independent from the story that I originally wanted to tell when I created this blog. But what I’ve learned is that when you have a group of passionate Bonnie fans, shit tends to get done. So I’m hoping that some of these talented writers will step up and help make a go of this.
