Rating: G.
Warnings: None!
Spoilers: Not tremendous in the image itself, although if you are familiar with the poem the text comes from (or you read the poem right now, since ... I'm going to put it in the notes), you'll have a pretty big clue as to the story's major event.
Summary: One wallpaper, in two sizes.

Story: Wide to the light-year stars
Artist/Vid Notes: [personal profile] oparu is awesome and her story is awesome and I am so grateful I had the chance to produce a complement for it! ♥♥♥♥♥ I read [personal profile] oparu's story, and was reminded of a poem whose full text a little judicious searching pulled up for me; I sent that poem to [personal profile] oparu in a giant rambling failboat of an email along with the mostly-final draft of this wallpaper, trying to explain why my art might seem irrelevant but really wasn't!!! (And then [personal profile] oparu graciously titled her fic with a line from it, which helps make me look less ridiculous.)

The poem! Philip Booth: First Lesson. (Sort of spoilery for story!) )

So I read [personal profile] oparu's story and then that and then made this:

Title: Long Drive Home (Not Much of a Girlfriend)
Author: [personal profile] damkianna
Fandom: Avatar (2009).
Pairings: Trudy/Grace.
Characters: Trudy Chacon, Grace Augustine, ensemble, original characters.
Rating: PGish? Some violence, not terribly explicit, and a little kissing. Lots and lots of swearing.
Warnings: Some of the violence is directed toward children; depictions of racism and ableism. Nothing particularly worse than the movie.
Spoilers: For the entire movie, though the AU elements change the second half a lot.
Betas: [personal profile] idriya, and my usernameless but awesome mother.
Summary: Grace first meets Trudy Chacon on a shit day. "Everyone thinks they're dating" cliché fic + I accidentally another movie rewrite = 75% grouchy pining, 0% porn, and significant AU elements starting about halfway through.
Artist: [personal profile] oparu
Artwork: [To be linked!] Long Drive Home (Not Much of a Girlfriend) and it is beautiful, thank you so much, [personal profile] oparu!
Author's Notes: Cut for mild spoilers (fic and movie)! ) Title is from the lyrics to Gym Class Heroes's "Cupid's Chokehold".

The very earliest beginnings of this story owe their existence to [personal profile] such_heights's Female Character Trope Fest - specifically, to [personal profile] ashen_key's request for a Trudy/Grace "everyone thinks they're dating" fic. The idea hung around long enough to get some new life breathed into it by this challenge, and here it is, a change of seasons and 34,000 words later, with my second AU of the movie tacked on the back. Oops.

I took her choice of song from the beginning of the story, and ran with it. I only wish I had had the time and expertise to really do the fic justice. [livejournal.com profile] peskywhistpaw asked to be surprised when I offered to send her a draft of this - I hope it's a good surprise!

Summary: While in rehab, Jinny finally acknowledges feelings she's been trying to ignore for many years.
Artist: [personal profile] angel_negra
Artwork: Not available yet. This will be updated when the artwork's been made available to me.
Author's Notes: I originally started this story back in 2002, after I'd started watching The Division during its second season. I immediately fell in love with the chemistry between CD and Jinny, and wanted to explore a relationship with them. Around the same time, I'd gotten seriously addicted to the Ghost Stories album by Amanda Ghost. Somewhere along the line, I got the idea to do a CD challenge with that album and this couple. I'd started this story and got about 10k words into it before the thing just petered out, mainly because of what Lifetime ended up doing to the characters. This story's been sitting on my hard drive for nearly 10 years now, waiting to be completed, and now it finally has been. I can't be more thrilled to finally have this damned thing off my WiP list. LOL!

Author's Notes II: I based the rehab facility in this story on Camp Recovery, but I made some changes to suit my story. I fully and freely admit that I played fast and loose with the research I did into rehab for Jinny. There are a lot of things happening in this story that just wouldn't happen in an actual rehab situation. I know that, I acknowledge that, and I still chose to take artistic license in how I worked out this story. If that bothers you, I do apologize. I felt that the love story was far more important to tell, and the rehab was primarily a means to an end for Jinny to explore her feelings for CD, and how they relate to her alcoholism.

The time has come, my little friends, to talk of other things: of shoes, and ships, and sealing wax, and… *ahem* Sorry. *g*

Yes, it's finally here. The day you've been waiting for. Posting day has finally arrived at thelittlebang.

As soon as you see this post in your flist/circle, you are free to start posting your projects to AO3.

Note: Everyone will have until 2359 EST on Monday, 31 October 2011 to post their projects, fiction and art/video alike. We're not expecting anyone to have an issue with this, as that means you've all had an additional 2 weeks to complete and post your projects. If, for some reason, you cannot post by this time, you will need to leave a comment here as to why you're unable to comply with this extended timeframe.

Master List
Once everyone's stories and art are posted, we will go through and create a master post and link everything together. Until that time, we will keep an in-progress masterlist on the comm profile.

Posting
All stories will be posted on AO3, all videos and/or artwork will be posted as suggested below. Once you have posted to the appropriate location, you will come back here to post an announcement. More on that a little later in this post.

Our parent collection on the AO3 is The Little Bang. We have separate subcollections for round one, which is open for anyone who wrote for round one, and a challenge for round two, which is now open.

Your fanwork should not be posted publicly on the internet until it has been live with TLB for at least one month.

Specific Posting Requirements & Headers
Below you'll find the specific header info required for fiction and complements when you post your links on the community.

Just a quick note to let y'all know that we are once again extending the due date for stories to be due for [community profile] thelittlebang.

We will have a post up before the weekend, marking out all the requirements for posting your projects and complements. We should also have a final answer on AO3 invites for those that need them. Speaking of which, who still needs an AO3 invite yet?

RL has been plaguing your mods this entire round, and we really appreciate everyone being so patient with us while we try to get everything resolved, both IRL and here on the community.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to leave a comment and we'll get it answered asap.

thank you!

We've gotten complemeters signed up for 7 of the 11 projects eligible. You can find the other 4 possibilities on DW or LJ. Please consider taking on one of these projects for a complement.

And please feel free to pimp out this need for complementers to your circle/flist.

Rules for signing up as a complementer.

By signing up as a complementer, you are agreeing to create at least one substantial piece of art for the story you choose. It can be a wallpaper, book cover, collage, video, or anything you can think up, as long as the effort and time you put into it reflects the effort and time and went into the story you're working from.

Artwork must be based off of the story you are assigned, not just the fandom the story is based in. For example, if the story you are working off of is about Teyla and Elizabeth's epic battle against evil space robots (and the hot sex they have after they p0wn said evil space robots) your art should be about that, and not about Teyla and Sora's pure love.

Artists must be willing to devote time and energy to their artwork. Participating authors will have devoted dozens of hours to writing and refining their stories by the posting deadline. Artists need to be willing to do the same. Don't just slap some pictures together and call it a wallpaper, or throw a few clips together haphazardly and call it a video. Please put some actual time and thought into what you're creating.

We understand that vids can take a lot of time and effort to put together, and we totally understand that a month is not the biggest chunk of time ever. even still, we ask that you create more than just a basic trailer for the story. Let's go with 1 minute as a bare minimum, and try to aim for more.

Once you've created a substantial piece of art, you can go as crazy as you want to creating more. Icons, friends-only banners, fanmix covers (and track listings) -- whatever you can think up!

When requesting the fandoms/creators that you'd like to work with, please note that these sign-ups are available on both Dreamwidth and LiveJournal. We will follow the timestamps and match you up on a first come, first served basis. We will reply to your sign-up comment to verify who you've been matched with. At that point, please contact your creator with the email address listed below.


Complement sign-up form:

comment subject line: [journal name] - artist sign-up

- journal name: the name of the journal you will be joining the community with
- email address: where you can be easily reached. @lj.com is not good enough
- do you agree to create at least one substantial piece of art for your assigned story: yes
- list your top 3 fandom choices, in order of preference: from the list below
- type of fanart you'll create: wallpaper, book cover, collage, video, something else [please verify with the mods on anything else first]
- would you be willing to create for a second story: yes, no or maybe

Please send your first draft to both [personal profile] ariestess @ spottyseal(at)gmail(dot)com & [personal profile] havocthecat @ havocthecat(at)gmail(dot)com. We will do our best to send out little "got it!" replies so you know we got your story. If you should happen to get one from both of us, please forgive us for both sending it off. *g*

Your subject line should be [username you signed up with] - ROUGH DRAFT

We need your story in plain text format. Though if you want to send a duplicate version in RTF as well (say, in case you used formatting, rather than putting in html tags), we are so not going to complain.

You should have the header that's behind the cut tag in at least two places: The start of your fic, and the body of your e-mail.

First off, the mods would like to take this opportunity to officially say that all deadlines for [community profile] thelittlebang have been pushed back by one week. The updated remainder of the schedule is as follows:
  • Rough Drafts Due: September 19 by 23:59 EST

  • Editing, Complementary Fanworks Creation: September 20 - October 23
    Claiming and creation of complementary fanworks, whether, fanart, vids, or written works.
    Editing of initial fanworks.

  • Posting Begins: October 24
    Initial and complementary fanworks to be posted. Please note: Stories will be posted at the AO3. We will create a challenge for TLB. Fanart and vids will be hosted on alternate webspace. (If the AO3 is up and running on hosting fanart, it will be hosted at the AO3 as well, but we can't promise anything, of course.)

That aside, let me try to answer all of your questions about the rough draft process here.

When you say "first draft," what exactly do you mean?
For the purpose of [community profile] thelittlebang, we're defining "first draft" as: anything ranging from a mostly finished story that's just in need of a polishing beta to a story that has all of the major elements of plot/storyline included, but is missing some scene details/prose and is still in need of fairly deep beta-ing.

The following FAQs should help you figure out whether or not your draft fits into that (pretty broad) category.

The rest of the FAQs about rough drafts )


If you have any questions about first drafts that haven't been addressed, please feel free to ask them in the comments to this post and we'll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.

First off, let me just thank each and every one of you that is hanging in with us for this round of [community profile] thelittlebang. To say that RL and/or Murphy's Law has had the mods firmly in their cross-hairs is an understatement.

But more importantly, this is a quick note to say that more detailed information will be posted to the comm tomorrow [Monday, 12 September 2011], and that the deadline for rough drafts being turned in is being extended. Full details WILL appear tomorrow, as will sign-ups for complementers. We just need to iron out a couple of last minute details before that can be done.

Once again, thank you for your patience, and I hope you're all doing well.

Where has the summer gone? We're already halfway through Week 10 of the initial creation phase. How did that happen?

How are your projects doing? Feel free to sound off with any squees or complaints you're having with your projects. And if you need to drop out, leave a message on the DW or LJ posts.

And just to let everyone know, we will have cheerleader assignments ready on Monday of next week, Tuesday at the latest. But before I do that, please leave a comment here if you DO NOT want a cheerleader assigned to you. That way, we can work through the assignments a little more easily and not make any unnecessary assignments.

Thanks! And keep on creating the femslashy goodness!

Okay, fellow TLBers, we are halfway through Week 9 of the initial creation phase. How is everyone doing?

Feel free to sound off with any squees or complaints you're having with your projects. And if you need to drop out, leave a message on the DW or LJ posts.

For myself, I'm in the process of changing my fandom/pairing for my project. The more I've been thinking about it, the more I need that original idea I had to stay original, rather than fannish. It just works better with the paranormal/supernatural aspect of it to be original characters. Or maybe it's just that Addison Montgomery just REFUSES to work with me on how to get it going using her. I swear, some of my muses are complete PIMAs! LOL! So I'm scavenging through my various story/plot ideas to see what will be more feasible to complying with the "let's get you written" mood I'm in.

Also, I wanted to note that, as of right now, we have 35 people signed up with initial creative phase projects and only 8 people willing to cheerlead or beta. This poses some logistical issues, and the mods will be doing a final decision on what we'll do for this situation. I know that I personally can play cheerleader to a great number of people, but I'm not sure I can handle the vast majority of creators in this project. LOL! Again, we should hopefully have a decision re: cheerleaders in particular by next week.

And now back to wrestling my [community profile] femslash11 assignments into submission.
