Except for a few shining examples, the Marathon community is largely devoid of Fan Fiction. I hereby invite all Marathon Fans to contribute their Fiction. All submissions will be anthologized, and the lucky winner will be professionally animated, scored, and voice-acted into a Marathon Fan Film.
I could list a bunch of boring rules here, but really, just get your submission in before March 31, 2010, and it'll all be good. You can send in early drafts, too, and as long as you make it clear that it's not a final submission, I will take my editor's pen to it and send it back. Let's bring the Marathon community's characteristic professionalism to this contest.
