Almost everything goes in the [community profile] atlantisbigbang, and this challenge is open to any writer who wishes to participate, but you must read and agree to follow the guidelines listed below:

1) This year we will have two tiers of participation: if you complete a story of at least 25,000 words, you will have one artist/mixer. If you're feeling really ambitious and complete a story of 40,000 or more words, you will have two artists/mixers.

1a) You may write with a partner; this does not mean you have to double your word count (although that would be awesome).

2) Stories must be beta read by at least two people. (There will be a post for volunteer beta readers; check back for details.)

3) This challenge is for new stories -- if a story has appeared anywhere on the 'Net in its entirety, you may not use it for this challenge. If you already have a couple thousand of words of it up, that's fine, but you have to remove that part for the duration of the challenge.

3a) Having said that, if you have a story you've already started, it's fine to use that, as long as the bulk of the finished story is written and edited during the challenge.

3b) Sequels are allowed; just be sure to link to the original story in your notes, so people can find and read it.

3c) If you find you need some inspiration, check out the prompts post.

4) CROSSOVERS ARE NOT ALLOWED. The only exception to this rule is crossovers within the Stargate 'verse; as long the majority of the characters are Atlantis characters, you may use any other characters, plot set-ups, etc., from Stargate: SG-1 or Stargate: Universe. Fusions are allowed.

5) You may not post your story anywhere online except for the [community profile] atlantisbigbang collection at the Archive of Our Own for two weeks after the challenge goes live.

6) Story drafts (by which I mean a story with a beginning, middle and end, that meets one of the minimum word counts) are due August 15th; artists will chose stories from summaries starting August 17th. Completed stories and art are to be loaded into the AO3 collection by October 1st, with the challenge going live on October 6th or 7th.

If you agree to follow these guidelines, and plan to participate, click HERE, and fill out the form. Once you've done that, join *and* friend [community profile] atlantisbigbang. This part is important, as reminders, announcements and check-ins will be locked to members of the comm.

Please note: I will be adding a list of authors as they sign up. Once you've filled out the form linked above, please give the mods a day or so to add your name; if you've not been added after a couple of days, please PM one of the mods so they can check the status of your sign up.

Sign ups will be open from now until April 15th, but you may start writing as soon as you sign up.

Author List, as of 9:35pm EST, 24 APR 12

I'm scared. Not gonna lie. Sign me up anyway!

It's fun! Also, you get a great feeling of accomplishment at the end. And art!

There's no bad there, it's ture!

God, I am probably going to bag out on this half-way through due to RL, but what the hell, sign me up.

Gonna make a fic inspired by the hunger games except John is the Katniss Archtype
Friday, April 6th, 2012 04:58 am (UTC)
I will read the HELL out of that fic!

Just signed up to do a fic, but when do the artist sign-ups begin? (I made the mistake of "signing up" with the 2011 form on LJ. Sorry!)
Thursday, April 5th, 2012 12:04 am (UTC)
I am very excited by the author list!

Do we get to collaborate with our artists? If not, is it possible to request only SFW art accompany my fic, not a fanmix or vid? I have some serious squicks regarding those items.

Gonna try to actually get a fic COMPLETE this time. I"m STILL working on my nano. Got talked into this, complete with flying plot bunnies that are vicious and won't take no for an answer. Will probably be around 30k to 40k, I hope...

I'm very excited for this! I've signed up again - for the third time now - and hopefully I'll be as succesful as the last two times! *is very excited*

Hi. I've just signed up to write, but I was wondering if you will be cross-posting important messages to Live-journal as I'm not good at checking DW - because all but two of my friends are on LJ.

Hi there!

There is a feed of this comm on LJ, but it will only show unlocked posts - but we'll post pointers to remind you to head over here for anything locked. Hope that helps!
Saturday, April 21st, 2012 09:06 pm (UTC)
Yes, thank you for your reply. I was a little worried because I often forget to check my DW accounts, and can weeks behind the postings.

I'm late! Can I still join? (I completed the form on the off chance that I can still join but feel free to let me know otherwise)
Tuesday, April 17th, 2012 04:54 am (UTC)
Ah, I'm late! Sorry. I'd love to sign up if you have a grace period. I filled out the form (hope that's okay).
Sunday, April 22nd, 2012 04:56 pm (UTC)
Hey, I know it is a few days past the cut off date for sign ups, but I'd been having trouble signing onto DW and was just now able to get in. I hope I can still write.
I'm planning on co-writing with padfootthegrim.

Awesome! Thank you so much!

signup post didn't look closed? anyway, I would really love to participate in this round if it's still open! :D
Wednesday, May 9th, 2012 09:56 pm (UTC)
Any chance I can still sign upas an author? I always seem to remember this bigbang right after signups close.

In the alternative, when will the artist signup post go up? (Or am I just missing it)?

I was positive I had asked to I join the group but realized either I hadn't or it was never approved. Anyway, I think I have likely missed loads of check-ins as the last post I saw was back in April.

I'm on LiveJournal and keep forgetting to check DW *sigh*
