Hello!

We’ve had an artist drop out and there are two fics now without artists.

The fics affected are #10 and #13 in this summaries doc.

10 is a mini bang.

13 is a big bang.

UPDATE

13 has been claimed.

10 still needs a new artist. Check out its summary here.

If you are interested in pinch hitting for these fics, please email us ASAP via teamfreewillbigbang@gmail.com

UPDATE

Fic #10 has now been claimed.

Thank you.

We’ve got  one artist who has tried to claim without the email address they signed up with. Their top pick was #12.

Would all artists who haven’t heard back from claims yet please check their email to see if it’s them?

hit_the_books: (Default)
[personal profile] hit_the_books

If you have signed up to be an artist for this bang, please check your email inbox. You should now have a link to the art claims form.

Send us an email at teamfreewillbigbang@gmail.com or an ask on Tumblr if you didn’t get the email.

Happy claims :D

To everyone else: if there are fics left unclaimed we will open up claims to those who didn’t sign up. Artists who have already signed up will also get a chance to claim a second fic.

Authors have until 4 July 11:59pm GMT to email their 80% complete fic drafts.

What does the draft email need to include?

Fic drafts emailed as:

  • a .doc or .docx or .pdf file
  • or include a link to your story as a google doc (ensure your permissions are set so anyone with the link can view the doc)

The body of the email should contain the following filled out:

Title
Author(s)
Rating
Word Count (we’ll verify this, don’t worry)
Pairing(s) (if any)
Warnings (if any)
Summary (This doesn’t have to be the final version of the summary, but should give artists a good idea of what your fic will be about and emphasize any key visual elements you think artists might want to know about)

Send your drafts and fic info to teamfreewillbigbang@gmail.com

If you are having any technical difficulties in getting your draft to us, please don’t hesitate to send us an ask or an email.

We’ll email around a link to a Google Form on Saturday May 6th.

FAQ

Team Free Will Big Bang FAQ

What are the differences between mini and big bangs?

Basically how long your story is. The Big Bang has a minimum of 15,000 words, and will receive a minimum of two art pieces from the artist plus a fic cover, while the Minibang has a minimum of 5,000, and will receive a cover and at least one piece of art.

Do covers have to be completely separate pieces of art from the rest of the bang’s art?

Covers can be remixes of art already created for the fic. But they need to feature the fic title, the names of the artist and the author(s).

How/where do I submit my draft?

Check out our draft submission guidelines post here.

How long does my story need to be?

You have two options: for a Big Bang, you need a minimum of 15,000 words. For a Minibang, you need at least 5,000.

What does the focus of my story need to be?

Your story must focus on all three members of Team Free Will: Dean, Sam, and Castiel. This means the story can be Dean/Sam, Dean/Cas, Sam/Cas, Sam/Dean/Cas or gen. If you choose a two-person pairing, the third character must be an equal focus on the story.

We won’t be counting words, but please try to stay within the spirit of the challenge. This is about celebrating all three characters, so have fun with them.

Are AUs, crossovers and fusions allowed?

Yes, all are allowed. However, the more obscure the other fandom, the harder finding an artist who knows both will be, so keep that in mind.

What about RPF?

RPF is welcome, but again, must focus on all three actors and their relationships with each other. So Jensen/Misha, Jensen/Jared, Jared/Misha, and Jensen/Jared/Misha are all welcome.

What about underage?

Please ensure that all fanfic and art doesn’t include under 16s depicted in sexual situations - this raises to 18 for RPF. Basically - off the page is fine, but not on the page.

Is it okay to write a sequel or prequel to an existing fic?

Yes, but only if your bang fic can be read without having read the existing fic.

Can I sign up as both an author and an artist?

Yes, but you cannot claim your own fic.

Can I create additional art for my fic/have other artists make banners and art?

Not until after your post date.

Can I advertise my fic on my Tumblr, Dreamwidth, etc?

Once claims are completed and you’ve been assigned your artist, you are welcome to advertise your fic on whatever media you’d like as long as you don’t post any snippets of the actual fic.

Where do I post my fic/art when it’s complete?

All fics must be posted to either Dreamwidth or AO3 and made live on your posting date, with the art embedded in the appropriate scenes. All art must have a masterpost on either Dreamwidth or Tumblr made live on your posting day.

On or before your posting day, both links must be submitted in a post to the TFW Big Bang Dreamwidth and/or Tumblr using this format:

[cover image]

<strong>Title:</strong>

<strong>Pairings:</strong>

<strong>Rating:</strong>

<strong>Word Count:</strong>

<strong>Warnings:</strong>

<strong>Summary:</strong>

<strong>Fic Link:</strong> <a href=” Dreamwidth URL”>Dreamwidth</a> | <a href=”AO3 URL”>AO3</a>

<strong>Art Link:</strong> <a href=” Dreamwidth URL”>Dreamwidth</a> | <a href=”Tumblr URL”>Tumblr</a>

We will check over the fic post for Tumblr and/or Dreamwidth, and make it public on the appropriate day.

Will there be an AO3 collection for posted fics?

You will be able to add your fics to the moderated collection via: tfw_bb_2017

Do I need a Dreamwidth/Tumblr/AO3 account to participate?

Artists should have at least a Dreamwidth or Tumblr to post their art to, and authors should have at least Dreamwidth or AO3 to post their fic to. No account besides an email address is required for claims.

Due to changes in LiveJournal’s terms of service in April 2017, the bang is no longer running on LJ.

Can I write more than one story/collaborate on a story?

Each author can write only one story for this challenge. You are welcome to collaborate on a story, but that counts as your one story.

Can I claim more than one fic to make art for?

The first round of claiming will allow artists to claim only one story. If there are still unclaimed stories 24 hours after the claiming begins, we’ll open a second round for artists to claim a second piece or for artists who didn’t originally sign up to participate. If artists drop out after assignments are set, artists can sign up to pinch hit as well regardless of whether they’re already assigned one story.

What do I need to provide for claims?

Fic writers will need to provide drafts that are 80% complete (with a beginning, middle and end) for claims, along with a summary. Specifics on how to do this are provided in this drafts post.

We will not accept drafts that don’t meet this criteria, as it’s not fair on artists.

How will claims work?

There will be a preview doc with each summary posted 48 hours before claims and emailed to artists who have already signed up, and posted on the Dreamwidth community. When claims open, we will email a link to a Google Form where we’ll ask you to resubmit some of your artist details and your top three picks for doing art. We’ll update the preview summaries with notes on fics as they’re assigned.

Do writers need beta readers?

Yes, all fic needs to be beta read for at least spelling, punctuation and grammar.

If you don’t have a beta reader, you can try asking for help over on:

/r/fandomnatural

Or ask someone from All SPN Ship’s list of alpha and beta readers:

allspnships.tumblr.com

If you still need help finding a beta reader, email teamfreewillbigbang@gmail.com and we will create a beta reader request post for you here.

May I post a WIP?

Works in progress (WIP) are not permitted to be posted for this bang. Fics must be posted complete (i.e. no serial posting), with art embedded.

Signups now open for the 2017 Team Free Will Big Bang

Running for the first time since 2014, the Team Free Will Big Bang is back and it hungers for your TFW fanfic and art.

Author Signups | Artist Signups

This Bang event is for Supernatural and Supernatural RPF fanfics that focus on the relationships between Dean, Sam and Castiel, or Jared, Jensen and Misha. Team Free Will BB stories can be gen, or have a particular pairing, or threesome or poly construct.

What’s important is that all three characters are present and are the focus of the story. For example:

You can write a Sam/Cas story that also explores the deep friendship between Dean and Cas, and Sam and Dean’s brother relationship.You cannot write a Sam/Dean story in which Cas does not appear, or a Dean/Cas story where Sam is off doing research for most of the story.

At the end of the day it is up to your own judgement to decide if your story fits, but if you want to run your idea past the mods, then please do send us a Tumblr ask or email us at teamfreewillbigbang@gmail.com.

AUs are welcome, as are fusions and crossovers, as long as the Supernatural characters remain the focus of the story.

NOTE: Please ensure that all fanfic and art doesn’t include under 16s depicted in sexual situations - this raises to 18 for RPF. Basically - off the page is fine, but not on the page.

There are two length options: Big Bang, a minimum of 15,000 words, which will receive a minimum of two art pieces from the artist plus a fic cover, and Minibang, a minimum of 5,000 words, which will receive a cover and at least one piece of art.

We’ll be running separate community chats via Twitter DM for authors and artists, so that people can ask for support or share ideas.

If you’d like some more info on the bang, please check the FAQ. The overall schedule can be found here.

We are so excited to have you join us for this challenge, and can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Posting starts in September 2017.
