Welcome to bigbangnews, this community was designed to give livejournal members the latest on the big bang challenges going on across a wide range of fandoms. There are already some listed in the profile but if you have a big bang community you would like listed please drop a line here.

Big Bangs are a challenge that was developed over the years, it usually brings Authors and Artists together in a fandom to creat a completed, multi-part fic with accompanying art. The art works as a sort of reward for Authors who sign up to write anywhere between 10,000 to 50,000 word stories.

They are quickly gaining in popularity and most fandoms have at least one hosted a year. A big bang can center around an entire fandom, a pairing, a character, or even a genre of fan fiction.

Posts will be made over the next month covering the rules of the various big bangs going on, from the rules and word count, to the schedule and master posts. Posts will also be made to the community that will serve as a newsletter, however they will be made every three weeks except for when mupltiple big bangs are running at once and have conflicting schedules.

If you have any suggestions or want to know if there is a big bang in your fandom comment here.
