What is a Big Bang? A Big Bang is a challenge in which you have 4 months to write a 20,000 word story. You have a second choice - a 10,000 word Mini Bang.
For those of you not writers, there will also be an art challenge to create art for the stories in the challenge.
Beta readers will also be called to help get those stories ready for posting!
What fandoms can we write? This is the list: Tolkien Arthurian Legend Babylon 5 (all) DC Comic Universe Dr. Who Firefly/Serenity Legend of the Seeker (TV series and The Sword of Truth books) Marvel Universe Pirates of the Caribbean Real Person Fiction Queer as Folk Sherlock Holmes - all Southern Vampire Mysteries/True Blood (NEW) Star Trek (all) Stargate (any) Supernatural Swordpoint Terminator Torchwood Troy Other: Fiction about fandoms that actors in the main fandom, Tolkien, are in.
