Hello everyone - or anyone who is still watching!

I'm importing this community to dreamwidth for no other reason than because I wanted there to be a back up. Dreamwidth is busy atm so the import is in progress, all entries and comments will have moved over in about 48 hours.

The community can be found at 00q_bigbang.

I've had a couple of PMs lately about the next round of the bigbang, so I thought I'd update the community.

There are currently no plans to have a second round of the 00Q bigbang this year, but there will most likely be one next year. I'll update this place and tumblr well in advance. Don't expect the dates for the next round of the fest to be similar to the dates of the last round.

I'm pleased that there's still interest in this fest and I'm sorry there won't be another round this year - it's for purely personal reasons. I've had a really stressful 2013 so I'm keeping my fandom participation as low-key as possible this year.

Hello everyone! Because August is just around the corner, I thought I'd give you a quick rundown of the posting procedure so that we're all ready to go. :D

1. You post your works on your own platform. It doesn't matter if it's tumblr, livejournal, ao3, dreamwidth, your blogspot or whatever else you've got.

2. One person in your team makes a post to this community containing the links to your works. I'll ask you to please use the following header when you make this post:

You can modify the header according to your needs, but as a minimum the post needs to contain title of work, who made it, ratings and warnings, and of course the links.

3. That's...basically it. I'll make sure to create a bunch of tags that you can use for the posts to the comm. If a tag is missing, just let me know and I'll add it.

If you post your stuff to ao3, the fest collection is right here. If you make posts on tumblr, either with your works or as a masterpost or advertising post or whatever, and these links aren't in your LJ post, I'd love it if you send me the links so I can reblog your posts on the fest account. :)

Right! So, because everyone so far seemed in support of the change (I'll update the rules...sometime later), here goes.

Each team picks a posting date via this doodle link! It's that easy. You can only pick one date. Make sure that everyone in your team agrees on your date.

You have until...say, July 15th to choose a date. Once everyone has picked a date, I'll publish a posting schedule. When picking a date only one person from your team should pick. When picking, use your team number!

Your teams are as follows:

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?

Discussion in the comments is much appreciated!

Here's how claims are going to work:

- All fic summaries have been anonymised and supplied with a number. Some summaries have warnings and ratings as well; if a summary has no warnings it is because either there were no warnings or I wasn't supplied with them.
- Using this form:

You make your claims. Second choice is there in case somebody beat you to your first choice.
- Post the filled out claims form in the comments to this post. Comments will be screened.

I'll confirm claims and send out the summaries once all fics have been claimed. (NB! This might take a few days! We're not all in the same timezone.) Writers will be CC'ed on the email. I expect artists and writers to communicate with each other for the remainder of the fest.

We have an overweight of artist sign ups compared to the final count of drafts - 31 artists to 18 drafts. Nine of you said in your sign up forms that you would like to illustrate more than one fic, and 12 of you said you might consider illustrating more than one fic.

So, the way we're going to do this is, there will be two rounds of claims. In the second round of claims priority will be given to those artists who didn't manage to claim in the first round and those artists who already claimed in the first round will come second. I'm aware that this isn't a perfect system, but it's the best I can do under the circumstances.

When a fic has been claimed once, I'll change the colour of the text to green. That means that fic can't be claimed again until the second claiming round.

First claiming round closed! Second claims will open tomorrow, Friday, at approximately nine pm GMT+1 (Copenhagen). More details on that to come.

Second claims open!

The second round of claims is going to be much more relaxed. Anyone is welcome to claim a draft - even if you haven't signed up before (in which case I ask you to give me your email address when you make your claim). I'll send out the emails as the claims happen, instead of waiting for all fics to be claimed before sending the emails out.

Please be aware that there's no guarantee that all fics will be claimed in the second round. When a fic has been claimed in the second round, the summary will be striked out, like so. That means that the striked out fic summary can't be claimed anymore.

And now to the list of fic summaries:

In just under a month (April 30th, midnight GMT), all writers should have submitted their 10k rough drafts to me. What will happen is that I'll run a word-count check on the drafts and then on May 1st, I'll make a post of all fic summaries for the artists to claim.

If you can't meet the word count but would still like to participate, please contact me. I'll make exceptions on a case by case basis. If you need to drop out, you can either let me know or just refrain from handing in a draft. I will NOT be chasing up drafts - if it's not in by the deadline, you're out of the big bang.

All drafts should be sent to this email address: 00qbang [at] gmail [.] com as an attachment. (All filetypes should work just fine.)
In the body of the email, please post an extensive summary (not the one you'd post with your fic, but a summary that gives the artists a more in-depth idea of what your fic is about. You don't have to reveal any twists or spoilery plot-points.)
If there are warnings for your fic, please add those too.

When all the fics have been claimed, I will email the draft to the artists who claimed the fic (with the writer on CC). From there, it's up to the artist-writer team to figure out the level of collaboration.

The final deadline for all works is July 1st. Further information about the deadline and posting will go up later.

It's very easy. If you want to be part of the bigbang as either writer, artist, beta or cheerleader, you sign up in the comments using the appropiate sign up form. I'll ask for your emails if you're an artist or writer so that I can send you reminder emails close to the deadlines and so that I can set up the artists/writers after the claiming ends. :D


ETA: the AO3 question is there because I will get AO3 invites for those who would like one. If you don't have an account and would like an invite, just put YES and I'll tally and request the invites. If you don't want an account put no, and likewise if you already have an account, you can put no. You don't need to tell me your AO3 username now as I'll be asking for your posting platform/username anyway when we get to the posting, five months from here. :) All I need now is your contact info and a name. :D I hope that cleared up any confusion.





Before you sign up, make sure you've read the rules so that you know what you're signing up for! :D
[personal profile] 00q_bb_mod

Hello everyone. :D I've got things brewing and while the rules and stuff won't be up quite yet (give it a week or two), I thought I'd share the the schedule for the other stuff that will be going on at the comm and the tumblr.

These activities are ope for everyone nd most aren't going to be directly related to the bigbang - so you don't have to be a participant of the bigbang to take part.

friending meme

fic & art rec party
(to tide us over waiting for sign ups)

drabble/drawble challenge (to kickstart the muses)

squee post of squee (in which we will squee over all things bondverse)

drabble/drawble challenge #2 (to shake up the writing process)

headcanon discussions (because why not?)

word wars & pencil races (to help us all getting finished on time)

???? (this is not a grand big surprise, I simply ran out of ideas XD)

I'll of course advertise everything as it happens. :D There will be posts here on the comm where stuff will be happening in the comments, but there will also be posts on the tumblr + I'll open the tumblr for submissions, so we can get the parties going in both places. Specifics will be made clear for each happening when it comes around. This is just a heads up. :D

LASTLY, the friending meme is still going strong, ofc, which is awesome. :D A friendly reminder that it's open throughout December. : (that doesn't mean I'll close it for comments or anything after December - you can always go there and make new friends and leave your own info - it simply means that in January the main focus will be the fic&art rec party. Etc.)
