What is a Big Bang?
A Big Bang is a challenge in which you have 4 months to write a 20,000 word story. You have a second choice - a 10,000 word Mini Bang.

For those of you not writers, there will also be an art challenge to create art for the stories in the challenge.

Beta readers will also be called to help get those stories ready for posting!

What fandoms can we write?
This is the list:
Arthurian Legend
Babylon 5 (all)
DC Comic Universe
Dr. Who
Legend of the Seeker (TV series and The Sword of Truth books)
Marvel Universe
Pirates of the Caribbean
Real Person Fiction
Queer as Folk
Sherlock Holmes - all
Southern Vampire Mysteries/True Blood (NEW)
Star Trek (all)
Stargate (any)
Other: Fiction about fandoms that actors in the main fandom, Tolkien, are in. For example, Sean Bean was in Game of Thrones so that fic counts as well.
Real Person Fiction (of listed fandom actors, writers, etc.)

The usual rules apply.
