Give me rain  
Our temperatures this past week have been just miserable. We were in the 90s every day, but out heat indexes have been over 100 for the last 3 days. It is just miserable. And so humid....I want rain!!!! If I knew a rain dance I'd surely do one!!

Started working at a new location about 5 weeks ago and so far, I have no complaints. It's much nicer being 3 minutes away from my house. I come home to eat lunch every day and I get to sleep about 30 to 45 minutes longer every day as well. Unfortunately the public remains as uninformed as every other office I've worked at.

I attempted to watch the Smackdown PPV Battleground tonight. I gave it up after the asian guy got kicked in the gonads by Baron Corbin. There is not a single member of the entire roster I care about seeing. I think we should send them guitar guy so we don't have to listen to him on Raw and they can send us chad gable

2017: ARTIST CLAIMS!  
IT’S ART TIME!!


To claim a story you want to do art for, please drop a comment below with:

FIRST CHOICE – Story Number: #
SECOND CHOICE – Story Number: #
Email Address:

Remember: first come, first serve!! (*Next year, we will try out the Preview Day thing.)

Sign ups for artists as well as this claim post will remain open until all fanfics get claimed! Get all your friends out to come take on some art! If you're willing to sign up as a Pinch Hit Artist, go here.

After you have claimed your story, you will receive an email from the mods with your writer's name & info, and the snippets they provided (it may not be immediate, but it should be within 24-48 hours). Authors: you will receive an email with your artist’s information once your fic has been claimed. Artists and authors are not required to chat, but it’s highly encouraged that you work with each other in whatever manner works for both of you. :)

What are the requirements for art?
You can make whatever kind of art you feel like, in whichever medium. Drawing, painting, digital, manips, vids, fanmix, fabric, mixed media, anything you can think of. We just ask that you put some time and genuine effort into it, as our authors have put major effort into their story. You are required to make a minimum of ONE piece of art for the story you claim. MORE IS BETTER. We love more! We want more! But, based on feedback from prior year’s artists, we only have a requirement of one piece of artwork.

Make it nice, put some serious effort into it! :)

(more questions about Art and Claims and stuff? Check out our FAQ.)

~

CLAIMS:

For the first round of claims, please only choose ONE story to do. We will shortly open it up to a second round, where you may claim a second and third fic if you so wish. If you’re super ambitious and desperately want to do more than three, talk to the mods and/or leave a comment and we’ll see what we can do - you must complete what you claim, however, if at all possible. Trying to find back-up artists is a nightmare - please don’t make us do it. ;) And a reminder that no extensions will be granted. Artists, if you have the time, please consider also signing up to be a pinch hit artist in the event someone has to drop out last minute.

Art and Fics Due - August 26th, 11:59 PM (Midnight) PST (here is a timezone converter.)

The following are all listed alphabetically by first fandom (i.e. in an Supernatural/Avengers crossover, it will only be listed under Supernatural).

go forth and claim! )

2017: Pinch Hit Artist Sign Ups  

How does this work?
What's going to happen is that when we have artist drop out in August, we'll send out an email to the artists who are willing to pinch hit - the means creating art, probably fast or very fast, depending on how late the original dropped out. All the artists who are interested and wiling will quickly email back if they can take on the project - first come, first serve. They will receive the relevant information (snippets, author contact, etc).

What do I have to do for art?
Check the original Artist Sign Up post for all the information. If you are interested in pinch hitting, sign up on THIS POST.

What's the timeline like on these?
It will depend on when the original artist drops. For example, if they drop in early August, then you'll basically have the whole month. But if they drop at the end of August, you may only have a few days. While we are taking a hard stance on no extensions, the mods will work closely with our Amazing Pinch Hitting Artists to ensure the deadline is doable (ex. if we lose an artist on Submission Day, the mods will of course give the pinch hitter who scoops their fic a few days to complete the art.) We will talk timeline when (and if) we end up needing to send Pinch Hit art emails.

We'll need the following info from you:

I have read the sign-up rules and the FAQ post: Y/N
LJ and/or DW Name:
AO3 Name:
Email:

To sign up as a pinch hitting artist, copy and paste the text below into a new comment and fill in the lines.



Artists and Non-Artists: please spread the word! We need LOTS of artists for our beautiful authors, so tell your arty friends, link them here, drag them kicking and screaming. ;D

hi, new and looking for friends!  
Name: Teddie
Age: 30
Country: USA
Subscription/Access Policy: Feel free to friend me and I'll probably grant access, although most of my posts will be public anyway! I'm looking to make more friends, so I'd be happy to have you, but you don't need to feel pressure to grant me access if that makes you uncomfortable.

Fannish Interests: I've had a lot of the years (shoujo manga, Harry Potter, Dragon Ball, Pokemon, Mass Effect, superhero comics), but lately I'm focusing mainly on Doctor Who, Star Wars, and Star Trek. I love a good space story! I recently decided to do a proper watch through of all of classic Doctor Who, so I'm having a lot of fun with that.

I like to post about: My journal is new, but I plan to post commentary and pictures as I make my way through Classic Who and the Big Finish audios. I'll also post about New Who, Star Wars and Star Trek, my personal life a little, and my cat a lot. I make icons occasionally.

About Me/Other Info: I'm a genderfluid (they/them prounouns), mentally ill nerd who likes being friendly and considerate. I have a lot of passion for my fandoms, although I can also be a little scatterbrained and flighty. I do my best to be consider of other people and to own up to any mistakes I make. I like to have a quiet, good time talking about science-fiction, animals (I love marmots and other related animals like squirrels), makeup, and toy collecting.

I'm looking to decrease my tumblr presence (too stressful for me), and increase my presence on other platforms such as this one.

Thanks for reading!

Art Claims: COMING VERY SOON  
Just a quick note to say that I have fallen behind schedule (apologies, guys!!), but the art claims will be going up today or tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled!! Claims will be on a first come, first serve basis. Pinch Hit Artist sign-ups will also be going up soon, for those interested and able to be Pinch Hitters.

Artists: I wanted to ask you guys' opinions about art claims: something I've seen done at other Bangs is all the summaries go up on a "preview" basis for about a day, so everyone can see what's up for grabs, and think over their choices. Then claims are opened and everyone can comment with their first and second choices. Is this something you guys would be interested in doing, or keep it the same as always (especially since the claims post will be going up a couple days later than usual)? Comment below with your thoughts!

hi!  
Name: Ciarra
Age: 24
Country: US
Subscription/Access Policy: Friend away! I'm always looking for new friends to talk to. As for access, I grant almost everyone that subscribes to me. If I ever lock something it'll be something really personal and might be trigger-y. I will always warn if I do post something of that nature. There's no pressure to grant me access back.

Fannish Interests: Gosh, okay, I like a lot of things. But I also need to catch up on a lot of things. That's my problem.

I watch a lot of tv. Right now I'm watching shadowhunters and deciding if I want to catch up on Teen Wolf or not. My love for Scott McCall is enternal though. 

I really enjoy pokemon,  digimon,  yugioh,  sailor moon, power rangers, tf&f series, harry potter, kingdom hearts, and classic spn. all of those were my fandoms before I ever knew what fandom meant. i am casually into new doctor who but Ten was my first doctor and my favorite era. I'm always there for the companions the most though and I love bill potts so much. i love sherlock holmes adaptations but i gotta say my favorite is elementary. i'm also into low energy video games so pretty much anything nintendo and the sims. I'm a little obsessed with the sims and the fandom it has on youtube. just a little. Superheroes are cool too! I like the mcu and dcu but i haven't watched all of it yet bc reasons. Omg star wars is a big one lately too. and the new Star Trek and hopefully the new series!! as for cartoons steven universe is like the best thing that ever happened to me probably. aaaand books!! gosh do i hope to actually start to read books. The last full thing I read that wasn't fanfiction was the hunger games.

sp in summary i love anything cheesy, ridiculous, and about friendship :D 

I Like To Post About: honestly? cute animals. cats especially. i'll post about all the things i care about and I might  do reaction posts to a show or movie etc. I hope to at least post fic or a rec or just journaling in general! I'm trying to find my place in dreamwidth after being on tumblr for so long now. 

About Me/Other Info: I'm an ace nonbinary (she/they pronouns) lesbian. I'm autistic, mentally ill, and have chronic pain & illness. I'm infp, capricorn, and a hufflepuff. 

hurt/comfort is my whole life. It's like my one true kink. I love reading it, writing it, having discussions about it, reading meta about, you get it. It's my jam. 

I'll mostly comment on stuff for a while probably. I have a strict rule that is if I see an entry/read a fic/etc I comment on it. <3

Just a reminder that the poll for the Mandatory Check-In closes tonight at 11:59 p.m. If you signed up to write a story for this challenge, please take a few moments to answer the questions in the poll to let us know whether you are still writing a fic, or if you've decided to drop out. Anyone who signed up, but doesn't complete the poll will automatically be considered dropped out.

Also, if you're writing a Big Bang fic, don't forget to send us your snippets. If you want an artist to create artwork for your story, we will need that by the the 18th as well.

We're heading into the home stretch now and I am super excited! I can't wait for the debut date!!! :)
