And we’re at our first check in of the year! Check in days just serve as a little getting to know you/see if you’re still out there post for people to get involved in and see who else is out there writing for this challenge. This one isn’t 100% necessary, but it’s a good way to see who else is out there.

And as a general reminder, please tag all monthly challenge fic submissions on ao3 with the tag ‘femslash big bang monthly challenge’ - it’ll make it easier for me to get the master post together for the end of the month. If it's just on livejournal, just comment a link on the corresponding monthly challenge or check in post. Other places? send us an email with the link to femslashbigbang@gmail.com

So, in a reblog on tumblr or a comment on this post, answer these questions:

  • tell us a bit about yourself - what kind of fic writer are you/current favourite femslash ship?

  • What are you most looking forward to about this challenge?

  • Have you decided what fandom or ship you’re writing for?

- Lore

PS. There’s still time to sign up for the yearly challenge if you want - sign ups close on the 28th of February

first off, I just want to say thanks so much to everyone who participated this past year in this whole challenge. It was a record number of people and the passion + excitement that I saw in there was amazing. You're all the best!

(I originally intended this to be longer, but time got away from me. If there's any other long fic that's not in the ao3 collection or in one of the monthly posts, contact me and I'll add it up there)

(Sorry for the dely with this post, but life's been a lot lately. I'll have the major post up by the 30th if not tonight, and I'll have details pertaining to the 2017 challenge coming soon. I'm still finalising some stuff, but if you're keen to help out, I'd love the help)

hey just a quick reminder that the final monthly challenge of the year is over + the yearly fics are due soon too on the 20th of December! Thanks so much for everyone who’s participated in any small or big way - you’re all Amazing!!

so within the next few days I’ll get up the final monthly challenge master post which will feature the October and November fics. After that, the challenge closes and I’ll get the final master post of all the year’s fics done.

In regards to next year, things will be a little different - which I’ll explain in a bigger post closer to when those things start happening.

Honestly can you believe this year is almost over? I’m so proud of everyone who’s stuck with the challenge and written/created things for it

So, for the last time this year, a few questions to answer:

  • What’s your favourite femslash fic/artwork/etc you’ve seen this year (or recently)?

  • Have you found any new ships this year?

  • How’s your progress (as always, totally optional but I love hearing from you)

- Lore

PS. Also, I’ll pull together the last months of master posts in at the end of this month as a combined thing, so look out for that soon.

And it's our last monthly challenge of the year! Thanks so much to everyone who's participated so far in these little things - you're all amazing!

Sign up via a message on tumblr or a comment on this post (please indicate if this is as an author or artist)
How it works:

  • write a minimum of 1000 words OR one piece of art relating to the prompt of the month

  • Can also do a rollover challenge using a prompt or fic (if you’re doing the art) from the previous month

  • works due on October 31st 2016

Prompt: The Road
Submitting it:
send us a link as soon as you’re done (via email to femslashbigbang@gmail.com, an ask or comment on livejournal)
Note: If submitting on ao3, please add it to our collection (FemslashBigBang) and tagging it with a monthly challenge tag so we can easily find it.
If you are signing up as an artist please find and ask your author/artist for permission FIRST. If the mods find out that you have taken someone else’s art or fic without permission we will have to ban you from the monthly challenges. We take this very seriously.With either of the Rollover options: you can either (a) work with the theme from the original or (b) adapt the original to the new month’s theme. It’s up to you how you want to interpret the rollover option!

PS. October's challenge masterpost will be up in a few days max (sorry for the delay)

Month ten of the year, and if you can believe it, we’re almost done with these monthly challenges! And the entire thing itself. Everything is back on track here, and I’m excited to get through this last bit of the challenge, as well as starting to set things in motion for next year.
And as always, here’s a few questions to respond to:

  • Are you more of an angst or fluff person?

  • Favourite halloween/spooky headcanon for a femslash ship?

  • How are you going progress-wise (don’t have to answer publicly, but it’s nice to hear from you all)?
