Second, all contact e-mails introducing you to your Author/Artist have now been sent out!

I may have forgotten to mention the latest check-ins here *coff*, but the Author and Artist Check-In periods will remain open through January 7, so if you haven’t already checked-in, please head on over to the Author Check-In Post #3 and/or the Artist Check-In Post #1 and let me know that you're still planning to participate. Remember that these check-ins are mandatory, and if you fail to check-in it will be presumed that you have dropped out of this challenge. Additionally, there will be penalties imposed on people who disappear without contacting me. Nobody wants that, right?

Despite check-ins still being open, and only about half of our authors having checked in at this point, I wanted to put up this preliminary list of fandoms now for artists who might be interested in signing up, but are leery of doing so without knowing what fandoms are being represented. This list will be updated as more Authors check in.

Preliminary List of Fandoms: )

Please Pimp Us Out! As you can see, we have quite a diverse bunch of fandoms listed here! And not nearly as many artists signed up as we have stories. I do not belong to communities for all of these fandoms, so your help would be greatly appreciated. If you belong to any fandom-specific communities for the fandoms listed above (and such announcements are allowed by the mod), please pimp us out! Or pimp us in your own journal or Tumblr! And if you know some artists who are up for a challenge, please mention us to them. Artist sign-ups are still open!

If you are interested in signing up as an Artist, please do so at the Artist Sign-Up Post.

Thank you!

Hello, everyone! I can't believe that we're nearing September 1st already (just under two weeks!) and that we'll be starting our sixth 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

(Also on Nov 1 will be the first Author Check-In.)

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!

Thank you!

Our fifth round at [community profile] 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 and those artists who stepped up and took on the task of creating artwork for more than one story. You have my heartfelt thanks.

For those keeping track, we had 54 stories and/or art created in 51 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: )

Participation Banners will be coming soon!

We’ll be holding a sixth 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 [community profile] smallfandomfest has opened its nineteenth 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!

*head desk* One day it will be a habit to post here whenever I post anything at the LJ comm. Today is not that day. Well, Friday was not that day. Today actually is ~one of those days. *g*

The Posting Instructions post is up! Posting begins this Tuesday, April 5.

If you haven't signed up already for your posting date, hit the Posting Date Sign-Ups post. If you've signed up and can't remember for what date, refer to that post for the Posting Schedule, as well.

Hello, Artists!

I'm hoping we won't need you, but if you're willing to act as a pinch-hit artist should we have an artist drop out at the last minute, please comment here to let me know. I've screened comments. Thank you!

Rough drafts were due yesterday, and yes, I forgot to post an announcement here. *head desk* One day I will remember to cross-post to both comms on a regular basis. Here's what's happening next:

1. The Artist Claiming Post will go up next Sunday, February 7. Artists will claim a story from the summaries, which will be posted anonymously. (The Sneak Peak post will go up at least 24 hours prior to the Claiming Post, though I’m shooting for 48 hours to give all the artists time to review the summaries.) The Matching Reveal post will go up on Sunday, February 14. At that time I will forward the author’s LJ User Name and e-mail to the artist.

Authors will be responsible for sending their story to their artist as soon as possible. In the past there have been issues with lack of communication between authors and artists. Please don’t be that person who leaves your author/artist hanging.

2. Artist sign-ups will remain open until all fic have been claimed. If you know of someone who’d like to sign-up as an artist, please direct them to the Artist Sign-Up Post.

3. If you have not already done so, please join the LJ/DW community! This is for both Artists and Authors. Authors & Artists will need to be able to post their Master Posts to the community, and the Sneak Peek Post and Artist Claim Post will be locked to members only. [Please note that I will post the Sneak Peek post here, but the claims will all take place on LJ.]

Thank you!
