Hi everyone! I just had a couple of things I wanted to talk about real quick.

First off is communication with mods, i.e. me. At the moment I'm the only mod running things, so unfortunately I can't respond to every comment on every platform. I'm trying my best, but there are a lot of you and I don't have much extra time! That means that I haven't been responding to comments unless I think it really needs response, like questions or drop outs, and often my responses come several days late. So please don't feel put off if you don't get a response from me, especially on check ins! If you really want one and I haven't responded in a couple of days, feel free to send an email and hopefully I can get to that faster.

Secondly, I've updated the FAQ a bit due to some confusion about emails. Basically it says that unfortunately we don't have the time to keep up an email list to send out reminders about deadlines, but please feel free to email us if you need to. If you have any questions about the FAQ update or about emails, don't hesitate to ask!

Lastly, just a few reminders:

  • Snippets are due this Sunday, May 14th, at 11:59pm CST. Instructions on how to submit snippets can be found here.

  • The discussion post is still open for you to post about your story and talk with others about theirs. If you're in a rut and need some help, try it out! And if you're willing to talk with other participatns about their stories, consider tracking the post so you can keep up with the comments.

  • The artist interest form is open until May 14th as well. If you're interested in being first to know about art claims, please be sure to fill it out.

 There's only about a week left of the bang for this year! I hope everyone is working very hard to put the finishing touches on their fics/art. For now I have several very important notes/reminders, as well as a poll that I would really appreciate if everyone would leave their thoughts on it.


- With the bang so close to being over, there are unfortunately many people whose posting dates have passed and they have not posted their fics/art. These dates are NOT suggestions. Please submit your post on your day, the earlier the better so I have time to approve it. You don't even have to wait until your day to submit, you can submit early and we will queue it to post on your day.

  • If your posting date has passed, please go ahead and post asap and I will approve them when I have a chance. Anything submitted after August 22nd will be rejected.

  • If you can't post to LJ for some reason, email me your posting information and I will post it for you.

  • If you will be unable to post your completed fic, please email me to drop out before your posting day so I can update my schedule.

  • If you will be unable to post your completed art, please email me asap so I can find a pinch hitter.

- We have a WIP Big Bang 2016 collection on AO3 that you are welcome to post your works to.

Please check out your fellow participants' fics and art and leave a comment if you can! They've worked really hard on their big bang pieces (just as you have!), and everyone loves a bit of positive feedback :)

- Artists, if you are not posting your own bragging post, PLEASE make sure to let me know so I can mark you off my list when your author posts.

- If you're not an LJ native or forget to check the comm regularly, we have several other social media accounts we crosspost to to keep you updated! Also, you are welcome to submit your bragging post to any of these as well as the LJ, but you MUST submit to the LJ.
As always, if you have any questions or problems, please feel free to email or PM me!


This is my second year running the bang and I've seen an unfortunate pattern of authors claiming a date to post their fic and never posting or artists claiming a fic and never returning contact or posting anything. This can be very frustrating for me and I know it can be very frustrating for those of you left hanging. I've been thinking for a while about implementing some sort of banning system for people who default like that, but I wanted to see what all of you thought.

WIP Big Bang should implement a banning system

A person should be banned for...


A person should be banned after...


Being banned should last...


If you have anything else you'd like to share about this proposition, please leave a comment here (they are NOT screened) or send me an email. And if you have experience with keeping a banned users list for a bang/exchange/whatever and would be available for some questions, please let me know!

 Hey guys,

I know I have a LOT of comments and emails I've yet to respond to. I just got back from a week and a half "vacation" and I didn't think it was going to put me so far behind on modding here... But I promise I will get to those asap and will hopefully have everything up to date by Sunday night!

One thing I did see several ppl worried about was the rough draft check that will go up tomorrow. I will respond to the messages I have individually, but for anyone else worried, you do NOT have to turn anything in for this check. All I need is an assurance that you are where you should be or will get there soon. This goes for both authors and artists, but I will have a lot more on that in the post tomorrow.

I think that should cover the most important things rn, but if you have any other questions or concerns, please leave me a comment or email and I will get back to you as soon as I can :)

Hey guys!

I just wanted to let you know that I am pretty behind on sending snippet confirmation emails right now. I will hopefully have all of that taken care of by tomorrow night, but if you haven't received a confirmation email by then, don't panic. I'm going in order of when I received the emails, so the earlier you sent yours in, the earlier you will get your confirmation. All emails should be out by Wednesday night CST unless something major prevents it.

Art claims may be delayed a day or two depending on when I can get through the confirmation emails and get the list set up, but I will do my best to be quick! In the meantime, please point all of your artist friends this direction! We're going to need a lot of artists for all these fabulous fics :)

Thank you for your patience!
