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 August 31st 2016

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! and tagging it with femslash big bang (FemslashBigBang)

prompt: seventeen days later

REMINDER: 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!

It’s check in time again. We’re over halfway done here, and it’s really been a fantastic year so far - so many of you have written fic (with a special mention to all those who’ve gone above and beyond with those truly staggering wordcounts)

And as a reminder from last month, we currently have a mid-year feedback survey up, so if you haven’t already, it’d be ace if you filled that out HERE

and as always, here’s a few questions to respond to:


  • What kind of characters are your favourite to write/create for?

  • What ship did you first start writing femslash for? Do you still write for that ship?

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

mod note: The monthly masterlist for June will probably go up somewhere around the 4/5th of this month because mod K is a Yank and has Patriotic Plans for the holiday weekend is taking advantage of her country's holiday spirit to play and will be generally unavailable. Consider it a grace period to put a few finishing touches on some things if you'd like!

And it’s finally June! Six months into the year and about five into the monthly challenges. We’re almost halfway done with both, if you can believe it.

This month, things are a little different - I’ve organised a typeform for feedback as a way of catching up with people on a bigger scale and getting an idea of where people are at and what they’re thinking of this challenge at this stage:

feedback typeform

so yeah, there’s that, and as always, here’s a few misc. questions to answer in a comment on LJ or a reblog here on tumblr:


  • Are you an AU or canonverse sort of person?

  • What’s a femslash ship that means a lot to you and why?

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

Here be the masterposts for both April and May! Together because mods have RL issues and also because sometimes it's just cleaner to do two months at once.

This time the masterlists are separated between the Monthly Challenge fills - those fics that follow the prompt - and the other fic that is added to the ao3 archive during each month.

I want to be sure to specifically celebrate those authors and artists that stick to the theme, but without ignoring the other really great things that are being submitted on ao3.

The general ao3 list will also be much more stream-lined than the Challenge list. Before, I was inserting summaries for each piece, but from now on will only do that for the Challenge pieces. (This process of collecting all the links and converting them to html takes me at least 2-3 hours every month depending on what the ao3 archive looks like, so I'm doing my best to cut down the work time without neglecting anyone.)

If you feel as though your work is in the wrong list, please feel free to pm me ((kwritten)) on lj or tumblr.

I'll do the best I can, but there will probably be a few mistakes. Sorry in advance and as always a huge congrats to everyone that participates in the challenge AND creates original fanworks each month. You're all stellar human beings and the sheer MASS amounts of works in the ao3 collection this year is just incredible.

((I will still try to keep track of multiple-Parts pieces and link back to those when applicable.))

[April Challenge Submissions]


April: Fake Relationships


come in a little closer (there never was much space between us) by elasticella
Shadowhunters | Clary/Isabelle | teen | 3,020w
The first step is to convince her older brothers, Alec and Jace, that she's dating Clary. Once they believe it, it's only a matter of time before one of them- probably Jace- accidentally mentions it to their parents.

Something. With Someone. by ereshai
MCU | Maria/Natasha | teen | 1,245w
It's a simple information hand-off. Why does Natasha suddenly have backup?

Sealing Their Futures by katleept
Golden Girls | Blanche/Dorothy | teen | 1,395w
Rainy Days and Mondays: I Want To Kiss The Bride/Groom
She's fully aware, as her dearest friend slowly, almost regally makes her way down the aisle, that, for the first time in her adult life, she is not the center of attention.


she truly believes the lies by crookedspoon
Batman: Arkham Knight | Christina Bell/Harleen Quinzel | teen | 2,450w
The “so like, i know we broke up and stuff but funny story, i haven’t told my family yet and they just assumed you’d be coming with me for [insert family celebration] and i really don’t know how to tell them and i know this is really selfish but i can’t break my great grandma’s heart like that, she’ll probably have a heart attack and– wait what? you’d do that for me? holy shit, i love you… wait–” AU (x)
or: Nearly a year after their breakup, Harley is forced to contact her ex Christina with a special request: to pretend to be her girlfriend once more.


Peggy Carter + One by FeelsandFandoms
Agent Carter | Peggy/Angie | teen | 5,412w
This had to be the craziest idea Peggy ever had and there was no backing out of it now. She glanced over at the woman who was accompanying her on the flight to England. She was going to be in so much trouble if her family found out about this ruse she was pulling on them.
Or, Peggy Carter hires someone to attend her brother’s wedding in England so she doesn’t have to go alone but she may end up with a real relationship by the end of it.


Ice Cream Kisses by jolybird
Les Miserables | Cosett/Eponine & Courfeyrac/Marius | teen | 2,821w
This entire weekend was going to be a study in Disaster. She had known it for weeks now, ever since she got the gold plated invitation in the mail.
A campaign fundraiser dinner for Marius’ Grandfather, a charity fundraiser breakfast, and then an engagement party for Marius’ cousin.
A gold plated: Come Home.
Disaster.


Couples Specials by inamamagic | Jane the Virgin | Jane/Petra | g | 2k+ (WIP)
Jane and Petra pretend to be a couple to get free cake

Wicked Games We Play by deathwailart
Dragon Age | Leilana/Morrigan; Female Inquisitor/Iron Bull; Female Adaar/Iron Bull | teen | 7k+(WIP)
When a noble couple in Orlais with ties to Tevinter by marriage are heavily suspected to have involvement in smuggling elven artifacts, slaves, and supporting the Venatori, Leliana and Morrigan agree to go undercover as lovers due to implications about their closeness, as well as their past relationships.
Surely as grown women they can be mature about this, and Leliana was a bard after all, what could possibly go wrong, it's not as if feelings will get in the way.





[May Challenge Submissions]
May: Fairytales


In the Tower by ereshai
MCU | Maria/Natasha | teen | 2,472w
Trapped in a tower, Maria is not waiting to be rescued.

fine arts and prints by elasticella
Shadowhunters | Camille/Clary | teen | 2,735w
Magnus Bane, the warlock, promised to keep them from all but simple peasants, so that they might blend into the world. And for seventeen long years, he kept them safe.

Continuing the Story by katleept
Xena | Xena/Gabrielle & Lydia/OFC | pg | 1,525w

The crowd is leaning closer, many of them intent on hearing the bard's story, but one rough and ugly man bellows out, "WE DON'T WANNA HEAR NO LOVE STORY BETWEEN TWO WOMEN!"


Wrong Assumptions by bonjourmarlene
Little Mix | Perrie/Jade; Perrie/OMC; Jesy/Jake | gen | 10,492w
It is one week before Perrie's wedding so her friends decide to take her on a sailing trip south of Málaga in Spain to have a last week together just as the three of them. During one of her swimming trips Perrie meets a gorgeous girl with grey hair and once her fear that she drowned wears off, she runs out of excuses why she keeps wanting to meet the girl.

Original Work | OFC/OFC | gen | 6,533w
Out in the wastes, Robin, Ruby and Luna encounter a wretch who tells them a simple thing: it is one hundred years since our children left.
Only it isn't really so simple when they head out to Hamelin, where Robin hears the music and learns what it means to pay the piper.

And here we are at check in 4! Once again, this update isn’t compulsory, but we’d still love to hear from you! So, after last month’s getting to know you questions, we’d like to follow on with a few more fanwork-related questions:

  • Have you written/created much femslash work before joining in on this challenge?

  • What’s your favourite thing about your current fave femslash ship(s)?

  • How’s your progress going on your work? (don’t need to answer this one, but we’d still love to hear from you)


Don't forget to check the comments section here or reblogs on tumblr for people's responses. :)

PS. Just so you know, check in will be a little different next month - I'll be setting up a new typeform as a wider check in/survey so I can see how everyone's been going a little more formally.

Check in 3!! Wow. Time’s flying like mad around here. I hope you’ve all been going well with this so far.
This update isn’t compulsory, but we’d still love to hear from you! So, after last month’s getting to know you questions, we’d like to follow on with a few more fanwork-related questions:

  • What’s a femslash ship you’ve always wanted to write for but never have?

  • Who’s your favourite canon wlw character or is there one that isn’t a canon wlw, but want to be? why?

  • How you’ve been going with fic/fanwork? (this doesn’t have to be answered) Got anything done yet?

Don't forget to check the comments section here or reblogs on tumblr for people's responses. I love hearing from you all!

- Lore
PS. If you have something you’d like to put forward to the rest of the participants - maybe some sort of shorter challenge or request for an extra set of eyes to look over your work, then email us at femslashbigbang@gmail.com or shoot us an ask on tumblr and we’ll pass it on in a group email later in the week.
Also, as a note on the round two artist pairs: I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to get those out as fast as I like, but RL is intense, but I will endeavor to send out the lists by the end of the week (fun fact I’m a film student and may or may not be basically trying to produce an entire film this semester)
