Just Burstin' With Geeky Goodness!!!

I absolutely LOVE this painting? by Jeff Zugale of Wil Wheaton riding a kitten/Dragon/Unicorn into battle against an Orc John Scalzi! My favorite "Big Bang Theory" episode of all time is the first one with Wil Wheaton. Wheaton and Scalzi are even hosting a fan-fiction contest to benefit victims of lupus.

You write a 400 to 2,000 word fanfic about the picture above. Come at it from any angle you like to explain, illuminate or otherwise bring to life what’s going on in the picture above. Our only request is NO slash fanfic (please). But other than that, knock yourself out.[...]

If your fanfic of the picture is chosen by our Jury of Awesomeness, your story will appear in a special electronic chapbook about the picture, with other stories written by me, by Wil, by Norton Award winner and Best Novel Hugo Award nominee Catherynne Valente and by Patrick Rothfuss, best selling author of The Name of the Wind. You will be paid for your story at the rate of ten cents a word (twice the SFWA minimum professional rate), and you’ll receive a special prize pack of books from Subterranean Press, which will publish the electronic chapbook later in the year.
