Rough Draft Submission Post

Artist Claims

A list of all fic summaries will be posted for artists to claim. Artists may claim up to 2 fics. Claims are first come, first serve. Claims will be open as long as there are unclaimed fics but should be no more than a week.

Final Drafts and Art

Final drafts are due on February 1st, 2014. They should be nearly 100% done (miniumum 10,000 words) and emailed to hannibalbang at gmail dot com. We understand writers and artists may do some final tweaks after submitting their drafts. That's perfectly fine.


A list of dates will go up with a number of posting slots for each day. Artist and writer pairs should agree on a date to sign up. On posting date, artists and writers will post independently with links to each other's work.

Include the link if your work is hosted on an external site (AO3, DW). If posting on LJ, all full works must be under a cut, with the exception of a small thumbnail, if desired, for artists.

A form will go up closer to the posting date with specific instructions on how to post.
