Hello everyone,

 

For something a little different, we've decided to hold an SG-1 reverse big bang.  So, what is a reverse big bang?  This is where artists produce wallpapers, and then authors claim whatever wallpaper gives them inspiration and write a story based on that work.   At the end of the challenge, both the work and wallpaper are posted together.

Minimum word count for the challenge is approx 5,000.  A beta reader will be provided for anyone who requires one.  The rules are pretty cut and dry for this challenge.  You sign-up, select the piece you get the most inspiration from, write your story, and post on the due date. 

The proposed timeline is as follows:

Artist and author sign-ups open: 4th of December 2016
Sign-ups close: 18th of December 2016
Deadline for art submissions: 8th of January 2017
Claiming post goes live: 15th of January 2017
Claiming ends: 22nd January 2017
Deadline for stories: 30th April 2017
Posting begins: 7th May 2017

Your story can be any genre you please. 

Authors and artists will be invited into the Big Bang lounge as per previous years. 

For those of you who prefer the normal Big Bang, we will be running that towards the middle of 2017, with posting to take place around Christmas.  We'd love to know if this challenge appeals to anyone.

Howdy peeps!

I didn't post a challenge this year because I have been crazy busy and just couldn't devote the time needed to run onee, but... I'm in the mood for writing a nice long story and figured maybe others are as well.  If I start up another Big Bang, the posting date wouldn't be until well into the new year, probably closer to mid year. 

So... Anyone interested in another Big Bang?

Welcome to the SG-1 Big Bang for 2015!

This year the challenge will be hosted on Livejournal, Dreamwidth and AO3, with sign up and participation available through all three sites.

For those wishing to participate through AO3, please click on the SG-1 Big Bang to access the collection site, and then click on 'Profile' for the rules. Due to limitations with the AO3 interface, stage instructions, sign ups and any other relevant information will be posted directly to the site as an entry. This allows participants and other interested parties to leave comments to that post.

Thanks to everyone for participating in the 2012 SG-1 Big Bang at [community profile] stargate_summer. From authors to artists to fanmixers to readers, your participation is appreciated. Regardless of moderator prodding and organization, YOU make this Big Bang happen.

The Future of the SG-1 Big Bang
[personal profile] melayneseahawk and I are handing over the moderator mantel to [personal profile] eilidh17 and [personal profile] magnavox_23. We’re very excited to be placing the future of this community into such capable and enthusiastic hands. Running this challenge for the past three years has been a labor of love, and while we’re sad to step away, we’re also eager to have more time to possibly be participants again! Ownership of the community will be passing to the new moderators in just a few days, so if you have any questions during the transition, please bear with us while I bring them up to speed.

Thanks again for a great 2012 and for a great time the previous 2 years as well. Keep it spinning, folks, and Godspeed, SG-1.
