Hey everyone. :) The deadline is in just under two weeks!

I think we need to talk about both the deadline and posting. The current "rules" for posting are a tad too complicated for my liking, so I want to change them. I also want to change the deadline. A bunch of you have asked for extensions, which is cool! You can have them! But I was thinking of making everything easier on us all and change the current procedure to this:

1) There is no real "deadline" as your deadline is your posting date
2) No one needs to submit anything to me (if you want to, that's fine, but it's not necessary - if you say you're done, I believe you)
3) The writer/artist teams pick a posting date in August
4) The teams post their awesome things on their posting date

So essentially, there'll be no need to post something under lock to be revealed later; you can just post your things on the day you want to post. I just need to know which date you pick, so that I can put up a posting schedule for the world to see. :D
If you don't have an LJ account, you can send me the links to your posts and I'll make the post here on LJ linking to your things. If you make posts on tumblr, you can drop me the links to those too so that I can reblog them on the fest/mod tumblr. If you post on ao3, the collection is here.

How does that sound?

sounds good. I just have one question

How are we supposed to post our works? Like, should we include the art into the story? Or link the pictures separately?
Or is that up to us to decide?

What if we post to multiple sites? I'm posting a tumblr masterpost and then also uploading it to Dreamwidth and Ao3.

I literally just finished my story like 2 days ago but I'm sure my beta/artist would like plenty of time to work.

Also I didn't really look at what the old rules were so I thought this was how we were posting anyway? [a winner is me] Anyway this is how all of the other big bangs I've done work. Some let us pick the date while others have the mods make the posting schedule factoring in who needs more time.

So yeah I'm good either way.

Ooh, I like this. I'm gonna contact my writers to see if they want to post the illustrations along with the fics, so I can send it to them before posting.

(In other news I have four fucking sketches with no background to my name. I am so ashamed of myself right now.)

This sounds absolutely brilliant - work's been giving me a lot more hours lately and I just haven't had the time to write.

Oh thank goodness; the deadline has been weighing heavily on my mind this entire week.

Question: do you want us to pick a posting date in advance, or is it okay if we post and then let you know that we've posted our works? I think I can pick a date (need to check with my artist first, though) but I've just realized I'll be traveling and/or will be without internet access for chunks of August, so that posting date might need to change.
