One of the more popular suggestions from the feedback poll we posted at the end of last year was that we host a Big Bang in place of one of our annual Snarry fests. Since our Autumn fest has a revolving theme, this year the Autumn fest will be the Severus/Harry Big Bang.
This is a Severus/Harry Big Bang. You can have whatever background pairing you want but the primary pairing in the Severus/Harry Big Bang must be Severus and Harry. There are two levels of author participation: O.W.L. and N.E.W.T. To receive an O in your N.E.W.T.s (and art of your fic!), your fan fic must be at least 25,000 words long. Folks who still want a challenge, but don't think they can manage 25k can try for their O.W.L.s with a minimum word count of 12,000 words. Please note: There are some differences between the Big Bang and what is typically acceptable in a snape_potter fest. A complete list of rules and FAQs can be found here on IJ, LJ, and DW.
March 1: AUTHOR sign-ups open for the Severus/Harry Big Bang!
March 15: Sign-ups close. You may begin work as soon as you sign-up.
June 1-8: Check-in point. Your draft, partial draft, or outline is due. This is the time to drop out gracefully or let us know if your fic will be longer (or shorter) than you envisioned.
August 1: ARTIST sign-ups open!
August 15: All complete and beta-read N.E.W.T.-level fic is due as well as a synopsis for matching you with your artist. If your fic is not complete, you may have until September 15 to finish. However your piece will not be illustrated.
August 16-21: Artists peruse authors's synopses and choose three fics they would like to illustrate. The mods will match artists according to their preferences as much as possible.
August 22: Artists receive their assignments.
September 15: All remaining fic (O.W.L. and N.E.W.T. level without art) must be received by this date or it will not be included in the fest.
September 17-21: Artist check-in point. Your draft or concept sketches are due. This is the time to drop out gracefully so a pinch hitter can be arranged.
October 3: All finished art is due.
October 15: Severus/Harry Big Bang posts! A masterlist of fic authors and artists will be posted after the final entry.
November 19: Period of exclusivity is over. You may post your creations elsewhere after this time.
