Today is July 31st and that meanst the writing period has ended! We use the honor system around here, so if you say that your story is done we will take you at your word. :D :D

Note one: What we mean by "complete" is that your story should be "completely" written. If you do some minor re-writes after today, a little editing, a little beta-ing still needs to be done -- that's absolutely fine!

Note two: For archival purposes, we would love if authors sent us copies of their stories once they're post-ready. 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 and put "Final Draft from USERNAME" in the subject line. In the body 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.

Note three: If you are posting to tumblr or posting to LJ/DW but potsing a link on tumblr, let us know and we'll reblog it from the mod account. If you do not have a tumblr (or do not plan on linking on tumblr), let us know if you would like us to make a tumblr post for you!

Note four: More information about posting (including the posting format) will be up August 6th.

All right, this is just a quick update so that everyone knows what's currently going on. The third author check-in has just closed. Later this week, we will be making a post of all participating authors. If you missed a check-in or unsure if you are still particpating, please contact us to make sure that you are on this list.

We will begin collecting summaries and rough drafts Friday, June 15th.

+ Requirements for summaries: There will be a template. Don't worry, this does not have to be the summary that you ultimately use on your story. This summary is strictly for the purposes of art claiming. Summaries are due no later than Friday, June 22nd.

+ Requirements for rough drafts: Rough drafts need to either be a complete outline of your story or 10,000 words plus a brief explanation of the rest of the story. Rough drafts are due Saturday, June 30th.

More information for these will be given when collections begin.

If you do not have a beta-reader at this time, please contact us through PM.

Also, artists: A preview of our art claiming post will be up on Sunday, June 24th before claiming begins on July 1st. The preview post will be as close in appearance to the actual claiming post as we can make it, and as such instructions on how to claim a story will be included in the preview post.

As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Good luck and happy creating, everyone!

Some of the artists we had participate this year made art for fics that were not posted. This is the place for them to post all of their pretties!

If you made art for a story and that author dropped out, please feel free to comment here with a link to your artwork. They will be added to the masterlist so that the world can see your awesome creativity! :D :D

  Happy Monday!!

I hope all of you are working hard on the artwork and final drafts.  (For you overachievers who finished early, GO YOU!)  We have a handful of stories that still need artists, so please check it out.  We are allowing artists to claim more than one story, so if you want, go snag another fic to make some rocking goodies!

Just a reminder, artwork is due on August 1st.  Next week, I'm going to open the posting calendar (We'll have 3 stories posted per day for two weeks.) so you'll be able to claim your posting date then.  

Happy creating and, as always, if you have any questions, give us a shout! :D :D

We did this back in year one, so I thought I would being it back this year.

Got an idea for a big bang idea, but don't have the time (or energy) to write it?  Drop it in the comments and maybe you will inspire an author to pick up your prompt.

Just be sure that you put your fandom and the prompt in the comments.  The prompt can be as vague (Kirk, Spock, Rubik's cube) or as detailed (Sheppard and Rodney find themselves trapped on the lower levels of Atlantis while Ronon and Radek mud wrestle in the control room) as you want.  Crossover prompts are welcome as well, but remember at least one fandom has to be represented in the sci-fi/fantasy realm (Star Wars/NCIS--hey, it could happen! LOL) and AUs are always awesome.

Have fun prompting! :D :D :D

Howdy! I hope you are all having a fantastic week!

This is the Awesome Check In post for authors! :D :D  So, authors, just post a comment saying you're here so that I know you haven't forgotten about the Big Bang, LOL.  If I don't hear back from you in two weeks, I'm going to start nagging you! *insert evil laughter*

I hope everyone is doing well! :D
