GENERAL RULES & INFORMATION

1. Please make sure you join the community. It will be the Artist’s responsibility to watch or track the community to make sure you don’t miss anything.

2. Acceptable art includes: A fanmix with at least 8 songs, a series of at least 8 icons, a video, a podfic, a single piece of two-dimensional art such as a cover or banner (manip, drawing, etc), or title and chapter banners. [At least one piece of art is required; if the artist would like to produce additional work that is absolutely acceptable.]

3. Artists may co-create art. If you choose to co-create art, please only sign up once and list both user names in the sign-up.

4. Artists may have also signed up to write fic, but may not claim their own fic for which to produce art.

5. Please note that check-ins are mandatory.

6. Artists will have the opportunity to claim additional fic if there are any unclaimed fic after the first round of claiming.

7. Artwork must not be posted anywhere on the web prior to your posting date.

8. Since this is a multi-fandom, small fandom challenge there is a high probability that Artists will be asked to create artwork for fandoms they are unfamiliar with. Authors are aware that they may be called upon to assist their Artist with screencaps, character descriptions, etc.

Please read the Rules and FAQ before you sign up.

7th-Nov-2017 09:26 am - SFBB07: Check-In Reminder
small fandom bang moderator
Today is the final day of the check-in period for Author Check-In no. 1 and we still have 15 stories outstanding. Please remember that these check-ins are mandatory and that there are now penalties for disappearing without a word, so if you need to drop out please contact me, do not just skip checking-in.

If you haven’t yet checked-in, please head on over to the Author Check-In no. 1 Post on LJ | on DW and do so now.

In future, please remember to watch or track the community so you see these posts.

Thank you!
small fandom bang moderator
Whew! There are a lot of things are happening simultaneously today! If you missed a post on your f-list, here’s the round-up:

1. Author Sign-Ups are closed and it is time for our first check in. Author Check-In no. 1 can be found here: on LJ | on DW. [If you can’t see the post you’ll need to join the community.]

2. Artist Sign-Ups are now open here: on LJ | on DW!

3. November 1st falls on a Wednesday this year, so our first Hump Day! Post is up at the support comm. Head on over to meet your fellow authors at the Author Meet & Greet!


Additional Items:

4. Invitations to the support comm, smallfandomcafe have been sent out to all authors who have signed up. The invitations will only remain open for 30 days, so please accept your invite before it expires. (Please note that you will not receive an e-mail notification of the invite unless you have adjusted your LJ settings to request one. If you have not received an e-mail notification, you should check your My Invites page under the Communities menu to accept the invitation.)

5. There has been an issue with joining the support comm using OpenID. I don’t know if LJ is having a brain fart right now, or if it’s something else. If there is anyone who routinely uses OpenID who might be able to help us out, I’d appreciate it. Thank you!

6. Lastly, a reminder to please e-mail the mod account if you need to contact me for any reason. Please do not PM the mod account on LJ or DW, especially if you want me to see your comment right away. I need to sign out of my personal account and sign into the mod account in order to view the PM, which is a bit of a hassle on my phone so I generally wait until I get home and can do so on my computer. Plus it’s easier to keep a ‘paper’ trail of our conversation when it takes place via e-mail. So please, e-mail me at sfbbmod @ gmail.com if you have any questions or comments. Thank you!

small fandom bang moderator
AUTHOR SIGN-UPS ARE NOW CLOSED

GENERAL RULES & INFORMATION

1. Please make sure you join the Small Fandoms Bang community on LJ or DW. It will be the Author’s responsibility to watch or track the community to make sure you don’t miss anything.

2. Your fandom must be verified before you sign up. If your fandom wasn’t verified during a previous round (and hasn’t since grown too large to qualify), then you should comment here or at the What Qualifies as a Small Fandom post at our sister community smallfandomfest to have it verified. The general rule for this community is that any fandom with less than 2,000 fic qualifies.

(For a list of fandoms that have already been qualified, please check the Qualifying Fandoms Database; for a list of fandoms that have already been disqualified, please check the What Qualifies as a Small Fandom post at smallfandomfest.)

Don’t forget to check the list for fandoms that have been disqualified since the last round.

3. Stories must be at least 10,000 words long. There is no maximum length.

4. All ratings, pairings (gen, het, slash, threesomes), and genres (from horror to romance) are welcome here.

5. AUs are allowed. Crossovers between small fandoms are allowed. Fusions between small fandoms are allowed.

6. Stories must be fictional person fiction only; this challenge does not include real person fiction unless the real person has been fictionalized. (For example, if you’re writing Alexander the Great based on the movie Alexander, or Napoleon based on the Temeraire series.)

8. Stories must be complete and new – no WIPs or previously posted work will be accepted.

9. Authors may sign-up to write more than one fic, and/or to co-write a fic. Please read the FAQ before doing so as there are limits to the number of fic you may sign up to write.

10. If you choose to co-write fic, please only sign up once and list both usernames in the form.

11. If you choose to sign-up to write more than one fic, please sign up separately for each fic.

12. Please note that check-ins are mandatory.

13. Stories must not be posted anywhere on the web prior to your posting date, in part or in whole. You will be able to share snippets of your story at our support comm, smallfandomcafe.

14. Authors may also sign-up to do art, but may not claim their own fic.

15. Authors, please note that you may be called upon to assist your artist with screencaps, character descriptions, etc. Since this is a multi-fandom, small fandom challenge there is a high probability that Artists will be asked to create artwork for fandoms they are unfamiliar with, so your assistance will be necessary.

For more information, please read the Rules and FAQ before you sign up.

31st-Aug-2017 01:10 pm - SFBB07: Round 7 Form Edit
small fandom bang moderator
Hello, everyone! The Author Sign-Up form goes live tomorrow and I wanted to let you know about one change I've made to it. From my experience signing up for other challenges I've realized there's an option to send the person filling out the form a copy of their information, so I have enabled that option so everyone has a access to the fandoms they've signed up with in case they need a reminder or need to change their fandom.

In order for that to happen I had to set the form to 'collect e-mail addresses', which is something I can't edit. So that you didn't have to submit your e-mail address twice I deleted the original e-mail item, and now you'll be asked for you e-mail before your LJ username.

It's a little thing, but I didn't want anyone to look at the form and wonder what the heck was going on.

See you all tomorrow!
18th-Aug-2017 08:26 am - SFBB07: Round 7 Coming Soon!
small fandom bang moderator
Hello, everyone! I can't believe that we're nearing September 1st already (just two weeks!) and that we'll be starting our seventh round of Small Fandoms Bang! I wanted to let everyone know for sure that we're a go this year, and reiterate the most important dates for the next couple of months:

Sept 1: Author Sign-Ups Open
Nov 1: Artist Sign-Ups Open (And First Author Check-In)



If you have any comments about the last round, or questions/suggestions for the coming round, please feel free to leave them in a reply to this post. (Comments will be screened.)



If you'd like to pimp us out before we go live, just c&p the text from the textbox to share this banner:



The 10,000-word big bang for small fandoms is coming soon!

And a huge thank you to my former co-mod for taking the time out of her busy schedule to create these snazzy banners for us.

(Also, don’t forget to watch or track the community for information on our next round!)
8th-May-2017 03:46 pm - ModPost: Import to DW
small fandom bang moderator
Due to recent events on LiveJournal, I have imported this community to the already-existing mirror comm Small Fandoms Bang on DW.

If you already have an account on DW and you have claimed your OpenID account, your DW name will automatically appear on the posts attributable to you. If you have not yet claimed your OpenID account, you may do so here.

The current plan is that, beginning with our next round, Small Fandoms Bang will be run on both LJ and DW. I will make admin posts to LJ and do an import so the posts also show up on the DW comm within a few minutes (hopefully!). When it comes time to post your fic/art announcements, you may do so at either community (though you should only post to one or the other, not both). I will set up an RSS feed so that anyone who does not have a DW account but wants to follow the comm on DW so they can see all the fic/art announcements posted there may do so. A final import will be made at the end of each round.

Please note that this plan is subject to change, depending on what happens with LJ between now and Sept 1.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please comment here with them.

Thank you.
small fandom bang moderator
Our sixth round at smallfandombang has come to an end! I’d like to thank everyone who participated this year and helped make this round a huge success. Whether you were an author or an artist, a beta or a cheerleader, or a someone who left a comment, your participation is appreciated.

I’d especially like to thank our pinch-hit artists, the several artists who stepped up and took on the task of creating artwork for more than one story, and those artists who took chances on fandoms they weren’t familiar with. You have my heartfelt thanks.

For those keeping track, we had 28 stories and/or art created in 30 different fandoms (including crossovers) this round! Beneath the cut you’ll find links to all the stories and accompanying artwork. If you haven’t already checked them out, enjoy! *g*


Master List:Collapse )

Participation Banners will be coming soon!

We’ll be holding a seventh round in the fall, so please continue to watch the community or check back for more information. Thanks again!



In other news, our sister community smallfandomfest has opened its twenty-first round with a call for prompt submissions! If you want to write in more small fandoms (but maybe not 10,000+ words *g*), check it out!

Artist notes: [community profile] smallfandombang is a tradition by now! It let's me play at being an artist and it introduces me to new fandoms, all during the busiest time of the year. What's not to love? This year [personal profile] spikedluv made me watch this hilarious soap opera about basketball players idek. I only watched the bits relating to the pairing so I could screen cap stuff but I still gaped at the hilarity of the dialogue but hey the kissing was hot. So here you are, pretty boys and baby and feels. Please see here for texture and photo attributions.
