Announcement

ghoulmod

Due to low volume, both at sign-ups and during checkpoint #1, the 2014 Fallout Big Bang will not be proceeding as planned. Fandoms are cyclic in nature: there are busy times, and there are slow times, and that’s okay. There are still a lot of incredible people creating amazing things for the Fallout fandom right now, but there wasn’t enough interest in structure of the Big Bang to justify running it this year. Hopefully, by this time next year, Fallout 4 will have been released or announced, and the fandom will be busy enough to host another Big Bang. In that case, Ghoulmod will happily moderate the challenge, as she has done this year.

That said, some of the authors and artists have already made significant progress on their work, and will be posting their stories and art once they’re finished, and they’ll be advertised here, and on LiveJournal. In other words, watch this space! Ghoulmod is more than happy to advertise for anyone who would have participated, had the Big Bang proceeded as planned.

Ghoulmod would like to apologize for any disappointment caused by this announcement, but remember: there’s always next year.

Until then, over and out.

Artist Claims 2014 (CLOSED)

ghoulmod
Artists, please comment with your top three choices. Claims will be made on a first-come, first-serve basis. Introductions will be sent on the 19th.

Author Check-In #1

ghoulmod
Authors, please comment on this post with the following information:

  • Working title

  • Major characters and pairings, if applicable

  • Rating (General, teen, mature, or explicit)

  • Any applicable trigger or content warnings. This includes but is not limited to graphic violence, non-consensual sexual encounters, and racial slurs. Please err on the side of caution and list ALL potential trigger warnings.

  • 50 word summary of your fic. Don't worry too much about the limit, but remember, brevity is the soul of wit.

  • 100 word snippet of your fic, something that reflects your writing style and the overall tone of the story. See above re: length constraints.

If you do not meet this checkpoint, you will be considered dropped from the Big Bang.
Please contact @Ghoulmod with any questions.

Author Sign-Ups Now Closed

ghoulmod
Author sign-ups for the 2014 Fallout Big Bang are now closed, but artist sign-ups will remain open until February 10th. Authors, now is the time to begin writing if you haven't done so yet. The first check-in, which requires a summary, working title, and 100-word snippet, is due February 11th. This information is necessary for artist claims, so it's important that you meet this deadline!

Sign-Ups Open Monday!

ghoulmod
Get ready, Wasteland! Starting on at midnight EST on Monday, January 6th, artist and author sign-ups for the 2014 Fallout Big Bang will open! That's less than two days away, for those of you playing along at home.

A note of clarification: if your contribution is based on a prompt from the Fallout Kink Meme or any other source, you are welcome and encouraged to crosspost the story there once it's completed in April. A fandom Big Bang is intended to create lots of new works within a short period of time, which is why fics with 2k+ words posted elsewhere aren't eligible for the Big Bang. Because participating authors aren't allowed to post the work for several months, the rule is intended to ensure that an author doesn't 'disappear' and readers aren't left hanging for several months waiting for the next update. Ghoulmod would like to apologize for any confusion caused by her phrasing!

2.5 Weeks Until Sign-Ups Open!

ghoulmod
January is rapidly approaching, and with it, sign-ups for the 2014 Fallout Big Bang! If you're considering signing up as an artist or author, go ahead and request to join the community. There's no commitment, ans it's a great way to stay up-to-date on all the latest news!

If you're considering joining as an author, now would be a good time to start brainstorming or outlining yourstory! Stuck for ideas? Consider browsing the Fallout Kink Meme for inspiration-just remember: if you post more than 2,000 words of your story there (or anywhere else on the 'net), you won't be able to submit it to the Big Bang.

Artists, be sure to check out last year's Master List to see all the great examples of art by last year's contributes! Remember, the Fallout Big Bang is open to all forms of art, traditional or digital illustrations, fanmixes or original music, animations or short films: it's all good!
