Big Bang stories from 2012 for the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Big Bang
About Sci-Fi Fantasy Big Bang 2012 (scifi_bigbang_2012)
A Big Bang challenge is where you have four months to write a 25,000 word story.
Not an author? No worries, there’s plenty of room for artists, beta readers, alpha readers and cheerleaders. This Big Bang is specific to Sci-Fi or fantasy based fanfic.
There are some excellent Big Bang comms out there…this is to expand on that, not to infringe on them. I know some sci-fi followings are small and I wanted a chance to put a large collection of sci-fi/fantasy big bang fics together.
The Questions: (well, some of them, feel free to ask any other questions)
1. Are crossovers allowed?
Yes. As long as one of the fandoms is rooted in sci-fi/fantasy, crossovers are awesome. Personally, I'm aching for a Star Wars/CSI crossover. :D
2. Can I use a WIP?
Yes, but you still need to write another 25k (more or less) to the story. It's not fair if you only have 500 more words and then sign up for the challenge. Also, no posting additonal parts to your story during the writing period.
3. Can I sign up to be an author and an artist?
4. Can I write a Real Person fic?
Sorry, but this challenge is open to the awesome characters in the sci-fi/fantasy fandom.
5. Can I write a sequel or prequel to a previous fanfic?
6. Can I write an AU where characters from a non sci-fi/fantasy fandom are thrown into a sci-fi/fantasy universe? (i.e. How I Met Your Mother cast on a space station)
Yes, as long as their are distinct details that make it sci-fi/fantasy (changing the name of a city to a space station name but keeping everything else the same isn't going to fly).
7. Can I write an original fic?
Absolutely as long as it fits into the sci-fi/fantasy realm, you're set!
If you have any other questions, post them below. :D :D
