Welcome to the Teddy/James Big Bang!

This community is for a fest dedicated to the creation of fanfics of 15,000 words or more that revolve around Teddy Lupin and James Sirius Potter which will be illustrated by artists.

Rules


The rules for the authors are as follows:

Your completed fanfiction must be a minimum of 15,000 words. We want this to be challenging, but at the same time we don't want to put people off by having a huge word count, so are hoping this is a good compromise.  Of course, you are more than welcome *coughs*encouraged*coughs* to write more than that.

Your fanfiction must be an independent story written specifically for Teddy/James Big Bang and can't therefore be a sequel to an existing fic or a part of an existing wip.

To have art created for your fanfiction, you must submit a draft the artists can work from by the 24th of March. This does not have to be complete; all we ask for is that it is a minimum of 10,000 words so that the majority of the story is complete.  If you are having trouble getting to the word count by this date, please don't hesitate to contact the mods.

Background pairings are allowed as long as the story focuses on Teddy and James together.

The complete fic, which must be beta read, needs to be submitted by the final deadline 20th of May. It should be emailed to the mods (at teddyjamesmods @ gmail . com) by 12:00 midnight GMT.

Even though this fest is not an anonymous one, please do not repost your work anywhere until July the 1st.


The rules for the artists are as follows:

The fanart must contain Teddy, James or both Teddy and James.  At least one piece should include both of them.

For this fest, each artist must create at least three piece of art for their chosen fanfic.  We want to challenge the artists as well as the writers.

All art must be created specifically for the fanfiction.

Fanmixes are not an accepted form of art for this fest.

You will be given roughly two months to create your illustrations and final pieces are due the same time as final drafts of fanfics at 12:00 midnight GMT on the 20th of May.

Even though this fest is not an anonymous fest, please do not repost your work anywhere until July the 1st.


Rules for everyone:

All ratings will be accepted: G to NC-17.

Even though this fest is not an anonymous one, please do not repost your work anywhere until July the 1st.

Characters involved in explicit sexual activity should be 16+. Please warn for any under-age (below 18 for most countries) characters engaged in sexual activity.

Extensions will be granted on a case by case basis. However, contact the mods as soon as possible if you are going to need one.

Couple quick questions/clarifications:

Your fanfiction must be an independent story written specifically for Teddy/James Big Bang and can't therefore be a sequel to an existing fic or a part of an existing wip.

Do you mean an existing WIP that has been publicly posted? Or do you mean we really can't use anything that we may have already started, even if it's only ever seen the inside of our hard drives? ;)


For the email subject, you have two conflicting guidelines:
- In the email subject, please put "USERNAME, TITLE OF STORY".
- 8. Please title your email USERNAME teddyjamesbb.

Just want to make sure that is clear so you don't get confusing stuff at crunch time! :D

Okay, the separation for authors/artists wasn't clear, thanks for confirming!

And cool, glad to know that if I get REALLY stuck, I can mine my list of abandoned fics... LOL.
