Here we go, folks!

Information:

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:
Tolkien
Arthurian Legend

Firefly/Serenity
Legend of the Seeker (TV series and The Sword of Truth books)

Star Trek (all)
Stargate (any)
Supernatural

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.

HI all~

Only ONE week left to sign up for the 2nd Annual OEAM Big Bang then the fun begins. Next Sunday, Sept 30, will be the last day to sign up to write. Beta signups and Writing time begins October 1. We have 16 signups so far and I intend to signup but we'd love lots more so I'd love you all to promote wherever you are! I have a big ol' banner you can use that links back to the main page - send me an email for the html.

We have one beta so far so if you can beta or you know someone who'd like to, please have them sign up. The signup post will go up tomorrow. I am betaing for one person and might take on one more.

Artists have a long time to sign up, through January. If you want to do art as well, please do. If you know some artists, send them along to sign up! Remember, the art can be original, digital or Photoshopped stuff so you have plenty of leeway.

A couple of things:
-- I'd like to have the stories or a link to them posted here when the posting time comes.
-- We have a Collection at Ao3 and I have a few more codes that I can give out closer to posting time if you don't have one. I'd love to have them all posted there too.
-- If you have a co-writer, they need to signup too.

That's all I can think of right now. If you've got questions, ask them here or PM me. PM me with your email if you want a banner with html. I know some of you have your emails on your signups so I can get them there.

Here is the banner:

2nd Annual OEAM Big Bang Signup
Today is the Day!

Sign-ups for the 2nd Annual OEAM Big Bang begin today and run through the end of September. We have plenty of fandoms to choose from and even a few new ones since last year. We are changing to a 20,000 word format this year too. I will make a FAQ post after this one.

Go here for the list of fandoms.

Here is your sign up form:

Name: LJ name and/or name you will use when posting
Email: Where we can reach you.
Fandom: Choose your fandom
Summary: You may skip this for now if you don’t have one.
Do you need a beta?

The Rules:
1. You must join and watch the comm. I can't give you posting access if you don't join and watching will allow you to see any updates.
2. Stories must have a minimum length of 20,000 words and must fit fandoms for OEAM.
3. There is no posting before your assigned posting date.
4. Stories must be beta read.
5. All stories must have proper warnings (ratings, non-con warnings, etc.) If in doubt: if you wouldn't let your mother read it, then slap a warning on it.
6. A rough draft of your story is due by February 15, 2013 at midnight.
EDIT:
7. All stories must be previously unpublished, even WIPs.

Now go haz fun!

HI all,

Only 12 more days to sign up for our OEAM Big Bang. We have 18 sign-ups so far for stories and 3 artists. We need more of both. Many more. Here is where you can sign up to write and here is where the art sign ups are.

There is also an unofficial beta thread at the community. Please let me know there if you’d like to beta for someone and what fandom, etc. The real beta sign-ups aren’t until October but I do know that some folks are writing already and might want to beta as they go.

Please pimp this challenge at your communities and groups and even on your personal journals, if you would. We need more writers from our diverse fandoms!

Thanks to those who have helped so far too. Anorienparker and Lotrangel17 have helped with banners and charts. I will probably need some help when we get to the sending out rough drafts and such part of this, especially if we have more writers!

On a personal note, I have finally decided on a fandom and story. Yay for me. I need to sign myself up!

NOW hurry to the community and sign up for something!
