1. As stated in the FAQ, I'm hoping to get every piece made for this challenge mirrored over at Archive of Our Own (AO3) for accessibility's sake.

So, if you don't have an account at AO3 and need an invite code, please let me know in the comments.

If you are a member at AO3 and are willing and able to share invite codes with challenge participants, please let me know in the comments.

2. With the start of posting rapidly approaching, each author should consult with their artist(s) to determine what posting dates would work best for them as a team and what dates would absolutely not work for them. As a reminder, the posting period for this challenge is the entire month of August. Since we have four stories and four full weeks in August, I intend to break up posting by week. Week 1 spans 8/4-8/10, week 2 spans 8/11-8/17, week 3 spans 8/18-8/24, and week 4 spans 8/25-8/31. So, figure out with your artist(s) your top two choices of which weeks you would like to post in.

On Wednesday, I will make a post where authors can submit their choices for posting weeks. Assignments will be given out on a first-come first-serve basis. After I approve your posting week, determine with your artist(s) what day you will be posting on that week and let me know.

3. How is everyone doing? How is editing going? How's art-ing going?

Welcome to your weekly check-in post! We took a short hiatus during claims, but now that claims are closing in about 6 hours, we're back!

Since we are now joined by our artists, I thought we'd do another get-to-know-you thing. Participants, copy/paste the form below into your comment and answer the questions you feel comfortable with.



As always, feel free to comment with your progress or lack thereof and whatever else you feel like sharing about your life.

Note: please don't use animated gifs in your comments; they can trigger seizures.

The second phase of artist claims is now open. If you haven't signed up as an artist, but would still like to claim a story, you can head over to that post and submit a claim. Also, if you've already claimed a story and would like to claim another one, you can do so now.

  2. The claims post will not be crossposted to DW or Tumblr for the sake of centralization and coherency.

  3. The first round of claims will only be open to artists who have signed up for the challenge.

  4. The second round of claims will be open to the public.


Artists, before claims go up tomorrow, here's a chance to look over the summaries of the stories available.

I regret to inform our participants that claims will not be going live this weekend. In order for this challenge to move forward, we will have to extend the rough draft deadline.

I've contacted our authors and we are hammering out a more workable rough draft deadline. Authors, if you haven't done so already, please fill out this survey about the deadline extension by noon (PDT) on Sunday.

I will announce the new rough draft deadline and subsequent schedule revisions Sunday evening. I apologize for any inconvenience this will cause and I appreciate the patience of our artists.

Hey, all! The rough draft deadline (May 1st) is a week away. (ETA: deadline moved to May 29th.) If your rough draft is complete, please follow the instructions below to submit your draft.

Remember that rough drafts need to be at least 10,000 words long with a beginning, a middle, and an end. Your drafts don't have to be beta'd, and you can certainly add, remove, and revise things in the rough draft before posting.
  • Please save your story as .doc(x), .txt, or .rtf file.
  • Title the file with your author name.
  • Send the file as an attachment in an email addressed to cripbigbang[at]gmail[dot]com.
  • The subject line of that email should read “[your author name] – Rough Draft.”

In the body of the email, include the following header.



If you have any questions or concerns, comment below or shoot me an email.
