The Lightborn Project by Kenu The Lightborn Project by Kenu
One story ends [link] - but itís only the beginning for what came after.

The project is here [link] and here on tumblr. [link]

The Lightborn Project is an idea. A construct. A platform.

From right this very moment, your eyes skimming over these words, it starts.

It ends when season 8 of Supernatural begins.

Did you want to see Gabriel, Balthazar and the angels saved?

Did you want to learn more about the Elder Souls - human beings of great power, perhaps moreso than angels and demons of old?

Did you want to find out how Sam can help his brother escape purgatory? - you know youíll need these Elder Souls help to do itÖ.

Well itís gonna be up to you to do it.

All are welcome. There are a set of rules detailed in Lightborn -

-Dead Angels cannot maintain their memories for any length of time without an intense emotional experience. Even then, the remembrance is brief.
-Elder Souls are rarely what they appear to be - always shrouded in mystery.
-True forms are exposed in Purgatory. Sometimes they stay that way for days.
-Communication from purgatory to earth IS possible with intense concentration and steady mind - usually with one closest to the beacon. (the sender)
-Upset and discord prevents the mind from calming, and thus negates any contact outside of purgatory
-If you thought demons wanted the souls of purgatory for power, imagine when they learn the power of the Elder Souls
-Jesus, Gandhi, the Dali Lama were all Elder SoulsÖ who else?
-Castiel and Dean cannot leave purgatory without exploring no less than three things that hinders their friendship up until the end of season 7.
-Sam cannot enter purgatory. He must figure everything out from earth (Or hell. Or heaven?)

Write. Draw. Photoshop. Make music. Make playlists. If you want to see what happens, youíre going to have to create their stories.

A board of judges will choose the most creative, intriguing project winner in October. That winner will receive a digital printed painting of their (perhaps new?) characters in a scene from their work, a 50$ gift card to Amazon, and a print poster from The Lightborn Project.

All participants will receive a print poster from The Lightborn Project.

You have 54 days, 9 hours and 15 minutes as of now.

Go get them out of purgatory.

Also, I want to be clear. When you say "Castiel and Dean cannot leave purgatory without exploring no less than three things that hinders their friendship up until the end of season 7." Do you mean talk about things that have happened in the past (Ex. Godstiel or working with Crowley) or new obstacles that stand in the way of them getting out (Ex. I dunno, evil flying monkeys that try and attack them).

Hey girl! You made it! :)

Three hinders - they can be anything that's happened in the past 4 seasons of supernatural. IE - Crowley, or, Cas breaking Sam's wall, or, making out with meg (good, bad, I am impartial!) - whatever floats your boat. I would have it be emotionally impacting to better the drama of the story.

If you'd like to do something small instead of finishing the story, you're welcome to do so! A drawing, comic, setup a photoshoot - all is considered participating but I SUPER HOPE someone finishes the story in writing form!!! :)

Oh okay, so pretty much the two boys talking... Okay! I can work with that... I think.

I would love to do drawings or other things but sadly I can't :( I don't have models for photo shoots and I'm not very good at other types of art except for writing. Y'know, I don't know if I'll be able to finish the fic before the due date but whatever, my goal is to see it to the end. Or, at the very least act as a cowriter and help in that way.

Actually, if no one ends up finishing the story for you (written wise) send me a note or message... I would gladly act as a co-writer to help finish it. I've got a few pretty good ideas. But only if someone else is willing to work with me. :D

Oh, I wish I had found out about this sooner, I'm not sure if I'll have enough time to enter.

Oh well, I'll try anyway.

Wait, as of now, how much time do I have?
