Since just about EVERYONE commented on the reminder entry say that they'd need more time and/or would be late for the final deadline, I've moved the deadline to Monday, June 27th. Hope that's enoguh time for everyone to get their stuff together!

Well, the reminder's only a day late.

Round 3 Final deadline is 6/14/2011!

That's 14/6/2011 for those of you who like your dates the other way.

Sorry about having been such a bad admin over the last month, AGAIN. Submission still goes to the same email account. If you missed a deadline or two along the way, I'll still gladly post your stuff! Because, well, I'm not picky, and I didn't manage to follow through myself, and all that. Drop box is still the dgmbigbang (at) gmail.com.

It'd be greatly appreciated if you could find a beta reader for your fic this week before you send it in! Also, please have your HTML coding double-checked and finished before you send your fic, because I'm not going to be doing any editing for you!

Artists, please send your stuff in in an image format (you should know this but yeah), preferably something that won't eat up people's internet connections!

Once fics/art are posted (HOPEFULLY the weekend of the sixteenth, but that's my graduation so I'll be a bit busy), feel free to upload them to whatever external services you use, IE fanfiction.net, DeviantArt, whatever.

Thanks again to everyone who participated, even if you didn't finish! Because hopefully the bit you got started is something you can finish up when whatever pulled you out of the BB gives you a break.

Okay, whoa, so. Only four authors sent in drafts for the second deadline (lil_blossom 's Mending the Divide, empath_eia 's Oneiromancy, 's tossino Settling Down, and panda_pon 's Flashes), so I've been kind of at a loss as to what to do with these. If there are any other authors chilling out with ANY kind of draft, please send it in! I'd love to get my paws on it, and I'm sure the artist(s) of your fic would rather not have you drop, as well.

Artists, while technically your sketch deadline is Saturday, if your fic is one of those that disappeared, I'm totally willing to try and work something out with you if you want to change to a fic that actually got to the second deadline. Just pop me a comment here. Otherwise, please send your sketch in some kind of image format to dgmbigbang@gmail.com - scans, photos, and digital stuff are all awesome. Make sure to include your LJ username and the title of the fic in the email.

Additionally, with my high school graduation coming up, I've been EXCEPTIONALLY busy these last few weeks. The Big Bang will roll on, but I'm having to drop out myself (I'm The Princess and the Assassin), and things are going to be posted at a significatnly slower pace than before. Yeahyeah, horrible admin, throw me to a rock.

So the Big Bang totally slipped my mind this last week [/horrible admin] and I forgot to post reminders for the moved-forward deadline. Oops! Since that was my fault and not yours, I'll keep taking drafts for an extra 48 hours. You now have till Wednesday night.

Big special thanks to the people who DID get their drafts in so far (you three = awesomesauce), and to symbolism_egg who reminded me that this thing actually exists.

My sincerest apologies!

(Also, due to these various delays, all remaining deadlines have been moved back ten days - so the final deadline on June 4th is now on June 14th, and so forth.)
02 April 2011 @ 08:56 pm

Since a rather large number of people requested an extension to the deadline this round (and I'm not exactly up to par myself /badmin), I've extended the deadline for the second round of rough drafts. You now have until April 18th to get the second draft in!

Additionally, the authors of The Keys to the Garden and Untitled 1 have dropped. The artists for those fics (especially allegratheneko who only had the one claim) are welcome to grab another slot, but if you'd prefer not to, that's fine as well.

Note that this does not extend the deadline for artist claims - that's still midnight on Monday, April 4.
29 March 2011 @ 09:28 pm
Alright writers - here's your reminder!

Six Days until the second deadline!

Submission instructions for draftsCollapse )

This deadline is also the last day for artists to sign up for fics. If an author drops or disappears before/at this deadline, their artists will be allowed to choose another fic at that time. I'll contact the artist if that's the case.
18 March 2011 @ 02:49 pm
Okay, so it looks like every artist who is going to claim their first choice of fics has, but I'm left with a bit of a problem here.

Four fics (Mending the Divide, D. Zone, The Princess and the Assassin, and Untitled 2) don't have any artists at all. Five fics already have two artists. I don't want to have to force those who were the second claim on their first choice of fic to change (because everyone should be able to get to draw for at least one fic they like), so while I am opening up to a second round of claiming, there's a caveat to it.

The four fics that do not have artists must be signed up for first.

The rest of the fics will be opened for claiming once each of those four fics has at least one artist. If the four fics don't have all have an artist by next weekend, I'm going to have to start pruning the second-signup artists for the fics that are full, which I really don't want to have to do.

So give me a hand and sign up for something even if you don't particularly like it, so that everyone can get at least one fic they really do like.
06 March 2011 @ 07:41 pm
So in total, we currently have 12 fics and 17 artists. That means that in order for every artist to get a fic to work on, some fics are going to have to have two artists. The way I'd like to set it up is that each artist comes through and claims one fic first, and then when the first round of claiming is done, artists that feel okay with taking extra work can claim a second fic. Each fic can have up to two artists. Comment this entry with your claims.

By request, author names are not included in these summaries.

Additionally, some requested extensions on the deadlines, and thus their current wordcounts are low. Since several people request extensions the day OF the deadline (which made it a real headache for me), I'm going to standardize them now. You must request an extension at least three days before the deadline in order to get it. Otherwise, you will be held responsible for the full draft.

Rough drafts will be posted to Dreamwidth over the week, and a compilation entry will be posted friends-locked to this community on Friday. Artists, you have until April 4th to claim. Authors, your next deadline is the second rough drafts, 10K on April 4th. Those drafts will be posted with author's names, so that you can keep in touch with your artists over the two months after.

Fic summaries under here!Collapse )

Alright writers - here's your reminder!

One Week until the first deadline!

Submission instructions for draftsCollapse )

And now the frantic writing begins...
05 February 2011 @ 07:00 pm
Writer sign ups are now closed, so here is our final list of 22 writers (well, 23 writers, 22 fics) is here!

CutcutCollapse )

Feel free to use this post to get to know each other, brainstorm, talk with the artists (we have 14 of them at the moment) and... ya know, whatever. Reminders about the next deadline will be posted roughly a week in advance (along with submission instructions), and reminders about artist signups will be posted shortly before the deadline.

That's all for now, so have fun with Round 3, everyone!
