Summary: If you’re sending yourself out to the edge of civilization, people expect it to be done for fame and glory – but then, Julian Bashir has never been what’s expected of him. He’s quite happy to agree with the reasons other people provide, because he isn’t sharing the private whys and wherefores when people are more than happy to fill in the gaps themselves. There are other, better things to worry about, work to be done and friends to be made – possibly even a lover, if he’s lucky…

...all while fighting to maintain his worth, and remain exactly who he’s always been.

Hey, gang. With the rough draft deadline looming and artist claims going live shortly thereafter, I'd like to ramp up (pun intended) artist recruitment. With multifandom big bangs, recruiting artists at the outset can be a little difficult because there's no guarantee that a fandom they are in will be featured. But now that our lovely authors should know what they're writing, recruitment should be easier.

Authors, please fill out this form with information about your fics for this challenge, so I can start doing more targeted, fandom-specific advertising for artists. Thanks!

My fic is about The Hunger Games' Annie Cresta (canon PTSD, interpreted as autistic). It's a canon divergence AU. It's about Annie, her relationship with Finnick, and their polyamorous adventures with Glimmer and Cato. It's set around a rebellion against the Capitol. There's a third two-victor couple, Katniss and Gale, that is not part of the swingers' club.

I liked someone's autistic headcanon for her, being mildly autistic myself, and wrote her somewhat as a female version of me.

I read a great Gale/Katniss/Peeta fic and was inspired to write THG polyamory with a different group. I came up with some mother/daughter, father/son and sister/sister but wanted something where they were all unrelated, and thought of this.

It’s out there, but I’m willing to try something unusual, and find it an interesting side of Annie. Also, I feel the more conventional aspects of the story make it work well with or without the wild sex.

Career Alliance, a sequel to Only One Fish In My Sea (http://archiveofourown.org/works/776931).
Annie POV of my Gale's Hunger Games series (http://archiveofourown.org/works/676965), specifically most of Book 2 Fanning The Flames (http://archiveofourown.org/works/677007) and some of Book 3 Soldier Hawthorne (which I haven't started yet).

I've discussed this via tumblr ask, and have been told:
Sequel is OK as long as it's standalone
AU is OK as long as it doesn't change the main character's disability status.
I can discuss plans as long as I don't post ahead of time.

General
What is a big bang challenge?

A big bang challenge is a type of fic challenge where writers long fic (in this case, at least 10k words) that is then claimed by artists who create art, fanmixes, fanvids, and meta based on that fic.

What types of stories are allowed in this challenge?
Stories that feature prominently characters with canonical (or arguably canonical) disabilities and the experience of being disabled. That second part can mean any number of things. For example, falling in love while disabled, fighting crime while disabled, leading a carnival during the Great Depression while disabled... What's it like to do that kinda stuff when society isn't built for people with disabilities?

What types of art are allowed for this challenge?
Artists can create visual art (drawings, paintings, graphic art, etc.), fanmixes, fanvids, and meta.

Fandom(s): Original fiction
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Original characters (Meyers family); Brenda (Young) Meyers/Bill Meyers; past Brenda/Brett Saunders
Rating: R
Word Count: 25,631 total
Warnings: PTSD and flashbacks; references to past domestic abuse, past rape, past child abuse, past child sexual abuse, "present" teen sexual abuse, abortion and guilt over it; alcoholism; drug use; addiction; underage prostitution in terms of sex in exchange for drugs (very oblique/non-graphic); traumatic amputation and character with gunshot wounds from war. Each chapter has its relevant warnings.
Summary: When Brenda and Bill strike up a relationship, they don't know how they'll change each other, nor how their children will factor in. From the mundane things like raising a family, to the realities of their everyday (PTSD, anxiety, depression, and, eventually, a lost limb), to the unusual, their family solidifies every step of the way.
Notes: Many thanks to my beta, [personal profile] bookblather, and my wife for pushing me to finish the last difficult chapter. Thanks also to [community profile] rainbowfic readers whose input has helped shape how this family develops.

Rating: NC-17

Warnings: child abuse, references to past non-con, BDSM, breathplay, light bloodplay
Summary: After the events of the Peacekeeper Wars, Scorpius tries to figure out what to do with his life now that his Peacekeeper career and Scarran revenge plot have ended. As he and Braca strike out on their own, Scorpius reflects on his past to discover who he is without an all-consuming need for vengeance. Braca seems to think the answer to Scorpius' existential crisis is reuniting with Sikozu, the lover who betrayed them both, nearly killing Braca.
Notes: Many thanks to my beta, [personal profile] subluxate, and my artists, [livejournal.com profile] jakeish and [livejournal.com profile] badplanmobile. Thanks also to Renn for several AIM conversations last year about post-canon h/c fic, which formed the basis for a lot of this fic.

It's now time for authors to claim their posting weeks. We're doing things a little bit differently than most big bangs in that instead of claiming specific dates, an author will comment with two possible weeks that they and their artist(s) are available to post on. Posting weeks will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once an author has received their posting week assignment, they will arrange with their artist(s) which date in that week they will post on and then let me know.

Here are the weeks available at present...

Week 1: August 4th-10th
Week 2: August 11th-17th
Week 3: August 18th-24th
Week 4: August 25th-31st
