Mini big bang 2017

Hello, everyone! I do apologise for fumbling the ball on starting up a mini bb for the community, which I'd intended to do in the latter part of 2016.

I'd still like to go ahead, starting in mid January 2017, with posting from mid July, if you think you can make that work...?

A few points I've mostly made before:

  • Longer fills would be very welcome, but I think we could set a fairly modest minimum of 10,000 5,000 words for fic, or the equivalent kind of effort in any other type of fanwork?

  • Pairings of creators with two different types of fanwork (e.g. fic and art, dance and knitting) would be very welcome, and I'd love to help with that if I can - but maybe the invitations and offers need to be driven by the creators...? When creators sign up for the mbb, perhaps one of the items is to say whether they're interested in working with a fellow creator. (I just don't think we're a big enough community any more to be able to promise that, for all example, each fic writer will be paired with an artist. I'd be delighted to be proved wrong about.)

  • My intention is that this be slightly more formal than the prompt fest (e.g. creators must have a beta), but otherwise you'll have a feel already about how I run fests - and now is a good chance to make any (polite!) suggestions or requests about how this one will work.

If anyone with design skills could help me with a banner, that would be awesome.

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts or expressions of enthusiasm. And otherwise, I promise to actually make it happen this time!

I am enthusiastic! I want to create a brolin story. Gotta make the boys happy *jumps around giddily*

So, I want to take part. As scary as it may be to write 5000 words of RPF. 😨 I'll illustrate my own story though, if I may? It's kind of become a thing. Is that alright? Then I won't have anyone else to answer to 😆  Anyway, terrific that you want to organise this, my dear ❤❤💋

I can probably make you a banner if you like?

I'm always iffy one the 'creators must have a beta' rules because I don't have myself a regular beta.

Hey. Sorry been super busy with work. Didn't even get the holidays off. If you still need one, I'm off work Thursday so I can make something then.

I hope that's sort of what you were looking for :)

Hi again!

I am a million times sorry! Yes, you were right I was a bit busy/overwhelmed this month, but I did finally make a couple of banners if you still need them! ♥

First this one with this alternate text where the wording is not exactly as you originally wanted, but I thought the placement worked nicely. You can choose which you like better ^^

and this one with this alternate font. Again, you can pick your favorite.

If you want anything changed, I'm happy to make adjustments. Or if you have a request or an image in mind, I can make another one to your specifications also! ♥

Sounds good. RL is very demanding atm, so I don't know if I could deliver in that time span, but I'm sure gonna try!

I'm game to try :D
