Final works due October 6th!

Go-live starts October 13th!



We are LIVE

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! The collection is now live, and it is so lovely to see so many amazing new fanworks!

Give yourselves a HUGE round of applause and a pat on the back - you all deserve it :)

*off to post to main comms so EVERYONE will come see the pretties*

And keep an eye out in the next couple of weeks for a feedback poll from Hazel and I - we're always looking for ways to improve the challenge experience.




Hey everyone, guess what? WE DID IT!! Everyone's stuff is posted to AO3 and it looks like we're going to have an AWESOME reveal next week. Feel free to use the next week to tweak things, check over formatting, etc. Or, if you're DONE-done, then sit back and relax and wait for the go-live date so you can start enjoying everyone's projects! You guys are AMAZING and miz and I love you all to bits. You guys make it so much fun to be mods, and to be fans. =)


One Week Until Deadline!

Just a friendly reminder that all final drafts MUST be posted by Monday, October 6.

(But you can still make little tweaks after that - like that pesky typo you thought you'd fixed three times already! Just needs to be a completed, could go live and you'd be happy with it, version.)

Are you excited? Ready? Already posted and just awaiting the reveal? Glad there's still time?

Upload help!

I am attempting to upload a video into youtube for the ds_c6dbigbang and I need help!
First, It can't be published until the reveal day so I need to have it password protected because it needs to be added to the archive by Oct. 6, second, I can't figure out how to copy a picture of the youtube video on the archive and not just the link. Someone PLease Help me!


ds c6d Big Bang Reveal...

Who's ready for the ds c6d bigbang reveal?! I for one am super excited not only to share my fic but also my complimentary piece and to see all the rest of the contributions this year. Can't the reveal be like tomorrow already?!


Less Than a Month to go - Excited?

Hey there, Big Bangers! Counting the days left? Bouncing with excitement? Worried you won't make it?

You aren't alone! I know I'm still working hard on my piece pretty much every day :) But we will make it, and soon there will be new, wondrous fanworks for C6D!



Posting deadline is in ONE MONTH!

Hi everyone!! All the emails about primary and complement match ups have gone out, so check whatever official contact you gave us when you signed up. Let us know if you didn't get an email/PM!

The ds/c6d big bang 2014 AO3 collection is now OPEN. Anyone with an AO3 account can post to the collection (ask us if you need an invite!), and all the works will remain secret until the go-live date. Post (and edit your post) anytime between now and the due date of October 6th. Then the works will be revealed on our go-live, October 14th, 2014. Happy creating, everyone!

Posting instructions (mostly cribbed from last year's challenge) are behind the cut:

Questions? Concerns? Squee? Hit us with it in the comments. We can't wait to see what you all created!! =D


One Claim Left!

Well, we're down to one fabulous fic needing to be claimed, and then everyone will have a Complement! We're opening this up to everyone, so even if you've already claimed something, if this fic strikes your fancy, it can be yours!

Specifics below the cut - please claim on the main claim page if interested (and ignore that it looks like #1 is available - it won't let me edit the post, as Hazel did it originally, but that's been claimed as of today).

info on fic to claimCollapse )



Hi everyone! Sorry this post is going up late - work was NUTS today for me and for mizface as well. But the wait is over, because this is the 2014 due South/c6d complement claiming post! Below you will find all the 2014 primary submission pieces (hint: it's the same list as it was in the preview post). Take a look and comment to make selections.

How it works:
Anyone who signed up as a complement creator (ask us if you’re not sure!) may post a comment to the CLAIMS POST (not this preview post) with the number of your choice. You may list as many numbers as you would like, and we will assign each complement creator their highest ranked choice that is still available. For example, if the first comment posted requests “1, 2, 3” and the second commenter requests “1, 2, 3”, the first commenter will be assigned to work #1 and the second commenter to work #2. If the third commenter requests “1, 2”, they will not be assigned a work and we will move on to commenter #4. The third commenter is welcome to comment again and request a different work, but their requests will be honored in order of the second comment they post. If we make it through all the primary works and still have complement creators looking to match up, we’ll open things up for another round. Make sense? Feel free to ask questions!

Have questions about what constitutes a complement? Check out the Rules Post and the FAQs. More questions? Leave a comment, PM a mod, or email us at dsc6dbbmod at gmail dot com.
