Rules and Frequently Asked Questions
aka all you need to know


• What is a Big Bang?
It depends on the community. It's agreed that Big Bangs are challenges over a few months where writers write a certain amount of words and an artist claims the fic to make art to accompany it.

• So what's a Reverse Big Bang?
A reverse big bang is one where an artist makes art first and then a writer claims the art to write a fic for it.

• What are the requirements?
Artists will be required to make one piece of art that is either digital, a drawing, a fanvideo or a fanmix. Writer's will be required to write a 10,000 word fic to accompany the piece of art. For more details see the specific section.

• How do I sign up?
The sign up post will be linked on the sidebar.

Here They Are!Collapse )

If you still have questions, you're more than welcome to post below! A mod will get back to you ASAP.

It's already time for the first (and only) check in for artists. The check in is not required so if you don't have anything started yet then it's okay! This is just so that we can know whether people are still here and need any help.

Please remember that your art will be due December 4, 2013. The claims post will go up December 6, 2013. Near the start of December, we will have more information on how art submission and claims will work. Here's your reminder that sign-ups are completely optional so you're welcome to submit your art right up until the claims post goes up although we prefer it by the 4th.



We'd also like to state here that we will continue modding since we had no volunteers. We respect everybody's opinion and would like to thank those who offered support. The fest will go on with us as your mods.

So let us just say wow. We did not expect the anonymous modding to cause such a stir in the fandom. We'd like to try to bring up a few points to defend ourselves.

The comments being screened on our mod announcement. That was obviously our mistake. We figured that you had plenty of places to discuss if you wanted (your own journals or the rules and FAQs) and thought that people would appreciate a screened place to comment on it. That was the wrong choice and we're sorry for it.

TLDR; explanation on being anonymous and our being modsCollapse )

While we admit that we have most certainly learned our lesson about anonymous modding, we also have to admit that it's somewhat turned us off modding the comm in general and we have a feeling that it'll probably be an appreciated choice by the people who've found us lacking in the mod area. We do want the big bang to succeed more than we care about being the ones to mod it. So, we'd like to offer the comm up to one or two people who would like to finish off the round. We'd step down. You would change the password and be completely responsible for the fest. We'd give you the mod account so that the posts wouldn't have to be deleted. We do ask, however, that you keep the dates and such the same since people have already signed up under those conditions.

If you are interested in modding then comment below with your email address so we can contact you, your experience and anything else you think is relevant. Please comment by the end of Halloween wherever you are and we'll send emails out to the new mods within a day or two after that.

Comments are screened since people will be posting their email addresses and information.

If we don't have any volunteers then we will be following through with modding. The fest will go on regardless.

So this announcement was supposed to be queued to be posted on Saturday. The mods had it all written out and it was in the scheduled posts when it vanished. Sorry for taking so long to post it again. We had to re-count all the authors and such. Along with that, we seem to be having some trouble getting notifications and pms (or we might've noticed sooner this hadn't been posted). If we don't respond within about 48 hours feel free to send us an email at hpreversebang@gmail.com.

At time of posting, we have 12 artists and 22 authors. Keep in mind that all of the sign-ups are technically optionally. All we care about is receiving art from artists by December 4, 2013 and authors will claim them on December 8, 2013. With that said, we'd love some more sign-ups, especially from artists. Or you can help us out by pimping the fest.

We could also really use some more cheerleaders and betas. We'd like to start pairing people up but can't without a few more sign-ups.

We've had some questions about whether we'll say who we, the mods, are. While we understand some of the concerns, we've decided to stand by our decision to keep ourselves anonymous. Next round, we will revisit this but for now, we just don't feel like who is modding it matters. The Big Bang is what matters. With that said, if you do not trust us to blindly send us art without knowing what we'll do with it, we'll be posting the claims post on December 6, 2013. Claims will open December 8, 2013. You're more than welcome to send us your art sometime in that two day window so that you know that we've posted all art in the claims, etc. We do apologize if this prevents you from signing up for the fest and we'll have an announcement if this changes next year. If you wish to drop out, you can not send in art/claim fics or you can make a post below and we'll delete your sign-up.

Comments will be screened on this post if you wish to speak to us privately or you're welcome to send an email to the address listed above.

Welcome to the sign up post for artists for the Harry Potter Reverse Big Bang.

Please be sure that you've read all the rules and questions that pertain to artists and make sure that you can stick with the schedule.

If you're going to create two pieces of art, try to let us know in the form but it's okay if you get inspired and you don't know while signing up.

Sign-ups will remain open until art is due which is on December 4, 2013.

Please fill out the following form if you'd like to sign up as an artist. If you choose to be paired with a cheerleader and/or a beta then you will receive your cheerleader within a few days of signing up (hopefully!) and your beta around the time claims are due.
