» Author's Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang 2011 challenge. There aren't enough thanks that I can offer to my artist who, in spite of every possible hiccup along the way, never gave me grief. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] bellatemple, for the faith, the patience and for the opportunity to write this story for you. ♥

I also have to thank the mods of [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang who assisted me along the way and supported us with their flexibility when other commitments threatened to derail this entire challenge. You were so gracious, mods, many thanks.

SPN_Reversebang 2011: The Federal Hunters' Project, a WPA Initiative )
blue_bells: (Supernatural :: Adam-Sam-Dean)
Firstly, someone (ahem, [livejournal.com profile] thedreamisreal) reminded me that it was someone else's birthday today: Adam Milligan. Well, yesterday my time, today for most of you behind us in the timezone.

I remembered this a week ago. I think it even occurred to me on Monday. Then I got sick and higher brain function? Ba-aa-ah....

So, the [livejournal.com profile] adamwinchester comm is hosting a party post just for funsies, recs, everything and anything, including a three sentence comment fic meme because that's good, easy fun that everyone can join in on.

Secondly, I got my choice for [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang, whoo! Teamfic fun, bring it on! Hurry and contact me, artist, we have funs to begin! I can be serious, I swear. Just wait for this cold to pass; ahem. AHEM. I need sleep.
blue_bells: (Supernatural :: Sam)
The f-locked art preview for [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang opened yesterday on September 26 and will remain locked until Thursday, September 29, when authors can stake their claims.

I highly recommend everyone go over to have a gander (you must be a member of the comm to view the art posts) because they are beautiful, and if you're participating, you want to be ready with your top three choices (with back-up options) to post as a comment in the correct format. Details for how to claim are here.

There is an amazing stock of choices over there and I loved seeing the diversity of styles and ideas.

I think my brain has overloaded for the year on drama and justifying how people who should not be together somehow fall in love (XD), so it was the gen prompts that spoke to me strongest. And then the crack. Of course, some of the couple art also dragged me in, so it's safe to say that I have many, many choices, and my only hope is that whoever gets stuck with me is easy-going yet explicit with what they hope for in a story.

The mods already said it, but it's worth reiterating: when claiming, be considerate and empathetic of the artists who will read the comments. It can be agonising waiting to be claimed. Nobody needs to be crushed by reading such things as "All the good ones are gone" or "Well, it wasn't my first or fifth choice, but is #blah still free?"

Being creative is difficult enough without putting yourself out there in such a public forum as a big bang challenge. We're all still learning. We'll all still have a long way to go. Be considerate. We only succeed by persevering with practice, practice, practice, but a little encouragement and a lot less negativity go a long way.

Above all else, keep an open mind. You might be surprised at what you find.

In addition to the old reliable resource of Write or Die, the [livejournal.com profile] gsd_rtfn ("Get Sh*t Done Right the F*ck Now") support community is a great resource for all fanworks if you've been struggling (e.g. finishing that first draft of the art or fic, or polishing the final beta) because there will be a whole motley crew of people just like you and, through mutual encouragement with daily progress check-ins, they will help you get there.

The community has started a new round today and I highly recommend signing up to cheerlead each other if you need a little motivational force to get you over the line.

I'm using this to get my [livejournal.com profile] xmenbigbang project done and drafted.

The current round will end on October 1st. Hope to see you there!

Borrowed from every snowflake and their friend this week:

THREE SENTENCE AU MEME
Give me pairings (or characters). Give me an AU setting. I will write you a three-sentence fic.


I will also finally be responding to comments and getting down to work on the draft of [livejournal.com profile] xmenbigbang this morning. I have a week (and a clear outline, thankfully). Stranger miracles have happened. ;P

The story will follow the Brotherhood after the end of X-Men: First Class with background Charles/Erik, Erik/Raven, Azazel/Riptide, and Alex/Hank/Sean, but they're incidental to the story.

What are people's opinions on listing background character relationships when the movement is primarily gen?


Three Sentence AU Meme Round-Up To-Date:
For [livejournal.com profile] zekkass: SPN, (Dean/)Castiel/Gabriel [PG]; MIB!AU, they’re the Men in Black (at Immigration Intake)
For [livejournal.com profile] morganoconner: SPN, Dean/Gabriel [PG]; College!AU, Gabriel is a professor and Dean is both his friend and student
For [livejournal.com profile] synnerxx: SPN, Gabriel/Michael/Lucifer/Raphael [PG]; Gabriel owns a candy shop
For [livejournal.com profile] roachstar: Castle; Ryan/Esposito, Castle/Beckett [PG]; High School!AU, Rick Castle is the new kid on the block and he's paying attention
For [livejournal.com profile] nights_fang: SPN, Lucifer/Adam/Michael [NC-17]; College!AU, Michael has a grudge against Dean, but he also has a plan
For [livejournal.com profile] cashay: SPN, Michael/Adam/Sam/Lucifer [PG]; Prison!AU, Maybe being in jail doesn't suck all that much
For [livejournal.com profile] ladyknightanka: SPN, Michael/Adam [PG]; High School!AU & Detective!AU, Adam wants to ask his brother's partner to the prom
For [livejournal.com profile] nights_fang: SPN, Lucifer/Adam [PG]; Teacher/Student!AU; Adam is not the model student they said he'd be
For [livejournal.com profile] nights_fang: SPN; Adam, Zachariah [PG]; Mafia!AU, "They started on you when you were ten."
For [livejournal.com profile] zekkass: SPN; younger-vessel!Zachariah/Dean [PG]; Office!AU, the first time they met
For [livejournal.com profile] zekkass: SPN; Gabriel, Raphael [PG]; CandyShop!AU (cont.), They try to teach Raphael not to terrify the customers

And one more for the road?



This is a reverse of the usual Big Bang challenge. Each artist wishing to participate creates one piece of art that will be posted anonymously to be claimed by an author. Authors are then expected to write a short fic (minimum of 3,000 words) based on the art they chose.
