Okay folks!

Are you in? Any progress? Need anything from me?

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date!

Anyway, you all need to check in HERE by May 15-ish so I'll know if you're still in!

I do apologize for being late but I'm getting ready for [livejournal.com profile] luin77 to arrive from Germany tomorrow and I've been slammed with other RL too. Please forgive me!

Happy writing!

HI all,

Nothing else on our calendar is changing but since I have been tied up with an illness and death in the family, I thought I'd give everyone another 5 days to sign up. If you have already signed up, your writing time begins NOW!

Happy writing!

Here we go, folks!


What is a Big Bang?
A Big Bang is a challenge in which you have 4 months to write a 20,000 word story. You have a second choice - a 10,000 word Mini Bang.
For those of you not writers, there will also be an art challenge to create art for the stories in the challenge.
Beta readers will also be called to help get those stories ready for posting!

What fandoms can we write?
This is the list:
Arthurian Legend
Babylon 5 (all)
DC Comic Universe
Dr. Who
Legend of the Seeker (TV series and The Sword of Truth books)
Marvel Universe
Pirates of the Caribbean
Real Person Fiction
Queer as Folk
Sherlock Holmes - all
Southern Vampire Mysteries/True Blood (NEW)
Star Trek (all)
Stargate (any)
Other: Fiction about fandoms that actors in the main fandom, Tolkien, are in. For example, Sean Bean was in Game of Thrones so that fic counts as well.
Real Person Fiction (of listed fandom actors, writers, etc.)

It's that time.

On that day, I will make a signup post as well as a banner to share with others.

We do have something new. We will be adding the option for a Mini Bang, a 10,000 word story instead of the usual 20,000 words.

In the meantime, you can go here to see the dates and our fandoms.

Dear friends and members.

You may have noticed that the website has not been updated in quite awhile. This happened with no notice to me and no reason has ever been given as to why, so I have made a decision of sorts. I am going to list three choices for the future of OEAM and I really need all of your feedback on these options. Our OEAM grouping consists of these sites and such:

Of Elves and Men
Lord of the Rings Adult Fiction
Of elves and Men Slash
Adult Marton Csokas
Silmarillion Fiction
OEAM Livejournal
OEAM Big Bang

Posting has fallen off. We have added many new fandoms and done several things over the years to try to keep the site alive after LOTR dried up. I am tired of trying to revive a dead horse. This is the last attempt.

These are my proposals.

1. Stop updating and delete the site when the fees for it come due next year. We would still have Yahoo and LJ groups but OEAM would be dead.
2. Find a new webmistress and continue the site as it is.
3. Switch the website to a self-upload site similar to Ao3.

I need your opinions and ideas. Please comment here or write to me at alex_cat_45 at yahoo dot com

Rating: NC/17, Mpreg (mentioned)

Title: Hers (part 4 of His, Mine, and Ours)
Author: ZeeDrippyVessel/ZeesMuse
Fandom: LOTR
Characters: Eomer, Gamling, OCs
Rating: PG 13 for angry Gamling, angry war horses and a miffed Lothiriel. Oh and gratuitous Orc slaughtering
Notes and warnings: You REALLY need to read the first 3 installments. This tale builds on itself.
Summary: He grieved letting her go and moved on reluctantly. 19 years later and 12 years after discovering the secret she hid from him, the very thing Eomer King has desired more than anything, now kneels at his feet. How will his wife take news, but more so, how will the young man before him accept Eomer not as king, but as father?

House of Secrets

Author: [livejournal.com profile] chaotic_binky aka Glorfindel

Beta: [livejournal.com profile] keiliss @ Braided Light - Thank you so much Keiliss - you are a fantastic beta - I am lucky to have you :)

Artist: [livejournal.com profile] ardisia @ [livejournal.com profile] artbox - Thank you Ardisia - your artwork is as wonderful as you are! I am still excited about it :)

Fandom: LOTR

Rating: R

Characters: Lindir, Gandalf, Erestor, Glorfindel, Radagast, Elrond, Celebrían, Arwen, Elladan, Elrohir, Melpomaen, Galadriel, Celeborn, The Witch King, Nazgul, Sauron, Haldir, Weezil the otter

Summary: The orphaned Lindir is taken to live with Elrond and Celebrían, who raise him as their son. When Celebrían sails twenty years later, he feels her loss just as keenly as Elrond's children. Lindir's siblings are horrible to him but he has powerful friends. Plus, Lindir doesn't help the situation - he does magic research experiments on his siblings and sees no reason not to continue. Maybe that was why Gandalf sent him an amulet of protection, or maybe not.

On the way to Lothlórien, Lindir meets Radagast the Brown, who hints at secrets in Lindir's past. They are attacked by killer plants and spiders, and escape, only to find themselves deep in a dark part of the forest, facing the Witch King and his Nazgul.

How will Lindir survive?

Will help come in the nick of time?

What part will the mysterious amulet play?

Lindir's fate forces the family to confront explosive, painful and unspoken secrets: the huge deception around Lindir's birth, twenty-five years previous, and his part in what happened to Celebrían, and the even more secret aftermath.

Will the family survive or will it be blown apart?

Lindir tells it all, leaving no stone unturned, and as unrepentant as ever!

Elements: Action and Adventure; Magic; Wizards; Poisonous Killer Plants; Farts; Horrible Siblings; Angst; Humour; Magic Experiments; Secrets, Violence; Terror; Hurt; Parental Loss.

Disclaimer: I do not own the elves or their surroundings - that right belongs to Tolkien. I make no profit and have no intention of making any.

Notes: Written for 2015 OEAM Big Bang.
