Fandom: Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles

Characters/Pairings: Gen, with very minor/background John Connor/Allison Young, Kate Brewster/Lauren Fields, and Derek Reese/Savannah Weaver

Rating: PG-13

Warnings: If it applied to canon, it applies to this (some violence, secondary character deaths, wibbley-wobbly timey-wimey, etc.)

Word Count: 25,328

Summary: “This is all I am, John. I don’t know how to do anything but fight this war. I don’t know how to be a person outside of this life. I don’t know what I would want or who I would be. And I can’t think—I can’t even try to imagine anything else until this mission is over. I just need you to tell me how to stop Skynet.”

Sarah had asked Savannah to take care of their boys, and she entrusted all of them with the rest of humanity. But she never did say how it was supposed to end. (Third and final in a series)

Link to Media: TBD

Author's Notes: This is the third and final part of a novel-length exploration of what happens to Savannah Weaver following the events of "Born to Run," through John Connor's return and beyond. A lot of this story should be able to stand alone, but I'd recommend reading the whole thing, as there are references to characters, locations, and events from earlier installments.

[Round 6] Posting Begins Today!

Hi everybody! Posting starts today, so if you need posting access make sure that you are a member of this community (there are a few that I noticed weren't members). If you're posting under a different account than the one you signed up on, please let us know. If you haven't chosen a posting date or are unsure of when you have to post, check out the posting calendar. And don't forget about our posting guidelines (aka one of my favorite posts to make all round)! If you let me know that you haven't heard from someone, I have contacted them and will keep you informed.

We finally made it! Great job everybody, and I can't wait to see all of the awesome material everyone made!

[Round 6] Posting Calendar

It's time to choose a posting date! You can choose any date between August 21st and September 15th. There will be no staggering of posts or a limit to how many can be posted in a single day, but I hope that if anyone has a flexible schedule that you'll keep in mind if there's three people signed up for a particular day and choose one that maybe doesn't have anyone signed up on it something else. There are literally more days than we have stories, and I hope this creates enough time for anyone that has any finishing up they need to do!

As always, I'll do my best to keep the calendar as current as possible but remember to check the comments!

As always, good luck and happy creating! :D :D

Edited to clarify: All participating authors and artists will be granted posting access.

[Round 6] Short Update

Hey guys! So it looks like the majority of people can post on the original timeline, but for the few that can't we're going to move the posting dates back one week starting on August 25th. The latest we will be posting is around September 15th. That gives us three full weeks for posting! Since I don't want to drop this on you unexpectedly, we'll do claims for the posting calendar on Monday. I didn't receive email alerts about any of the comments on the last post (which is strange since I tried to reset everything to go to the email so that I could better keep track of everything!) but I tried to read everything, and if this timeframe doesn't work for anyone let me know! There are currently only five stories without artists, and if at this point you are an author that has not heard from their artist or an artist that has not heard from their author, please let me know!

[Round 6] Comprehensive Update Hopefully

Hi! I hope everyone has had a marvelous weekend! We're now into August and that means that stories should be done. Unfortunately, things are still a bit difficult on my end so if you're not done, don't worry too much about it. We use the honor system around here and if you say you're done or that you'll be done with it soon, we trust you. :)

Note one: What I mean by "complete" is that your story should be completely written. If you still need to do some minor re-writes, some editing, or beta-ing -- that's absolutely fine! Also, I've been pretty spotty lately so if it isn't complete -- that's absolutely fine too! I know that you'll get there!

Note two: For archival purposes, we would love if authors sent us copies of their stories once they're "post"-ready but this is not mandatory. If you want to send us a copy of your story, email it as an attachment to scifibigbangmod at gmail dot com with "Final Draft from USERNAME" in the subject line. In the body, please include your username, the names of the artist and beta reader(s) you are working with, the story title, fandom, rating, and a story summary.

Something we still need to discuss is posting dates. If authors and artists feel like (even with all of my late announcements) they can have their work ready by the original start of posting on August 21st, then I'll draw up a calendar for those dates. If not, leave a timeframe in the comments that better works for you. That being said, I'll still be posting the Posting Guidelines later tonight, so that either way everyone knows what to expect!

Finally, there are still 6 (five and a half) awesome stories that have not been claimed, so head on over to the art claim post if you're interested :)

As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, or if I missed anything let me know!

[Round 6] Personal Update

Hi, guys! This is Andy :) Unfortunately I've had about thirty things crop up recently, the most inconvenient being my laptop charger no longer working. I've managed to bum a laptop cord for a few hours from a friend to write this post and respond to a few messages/emails regarding this challenge, but for the foreseeable future I will not have even semi-regular access to the Internet.

Here is what this means for the challenge: We still need artists so if you know anyone that can pitch in, that would make you both some of the loveliest people in the world :) I will be attempting to continue running this through the end of this round but it will more than likely not be on the schedule that will has been set (I'll have to re-work it - more information about that to come). I've tried to catch up on anything from in the week I haven't been able to log in, but if I've missed anything or you have any concerns that need to be addressed, please let me know on this post or through email.

The end of this round may not be ideal, but I hope to read all of the wonderful stories you've all been working on :) So good luck and I'll try to keep you updated on changes I make to the timeline as I make them!
