This is the list of fics for ARTISTS to peruse for claiming. Please note that claiming doesn't begin until December 18th, midnight Eastern Standard Time (please note the time zone change. This is because your mods actually need to be awake in order to facilitate the early stages of the claiming process).

The summaries are under the cut. Every author received a confirmation email from us, so if you can’t find your summary in this list, please get in touch with us ASAP (sabrielbigbang @ gmail dot com)

Please read the summaries very carefully, and take note of the fics' numbers. You'll use those numbers during claiming. We've also listed ratings, approximate word counts, and warnings.

THIS IS NOT THE ACTUAL CLAIM FORM. Claims will go live at the Tumblr mirror at midnight, December 18th EST. At that time, you will submit your choices via a simple form.

Please, keep in mind that every author worked really hard to meet the deadline. If you need to drop out, contact us as soon as possible.

2015 Schedule | Rules | FAQ

Welcome to the 2015 Sabriel Big Bang, a fanfic and fanart challenge featuring the relationship between any combination of Sam Winchester and Gabriel of the TV show Supernatural, and/or Jared Padalecki and Richard Speight Jr., the actors who portray them! We’re putting a call out to the fandom for writers, artists, and beta readers to make this big bang/mini bang challenge a success!

For those who either can’t or don’t want to participate as writers or artists, but still want to contribute, we need cheerleaders! Your encouraging words might make the difference for a writer or artist having a difficult time! And please help us signal boost this to reach as many as possible!

Sign-ups began August 1st, and for authors close at the end of the month! The challenge is hosted over on Tumblr this year, so keep an eye on the Tumblr mirror for updates, questions and answers, and more.

Thank you to all our authors and artists for their hard work. It's been a honor having you all here for this round, and we hope to see you all again next year! You can check out the 2014 Collection on AO3, and keep an eye on the parent Sabriel Big Bang Collection for all future rounds!

Be sure to subscribe to our Tumblr, as this challenge may move entirely off of LiveJournal during the next round.

Today is the final deadline for drafts and art. If you are an author, please email us your final draft, and if you are an artist, please email us a copy of your art. Please send your work to sabrielbigbang(at)gmail(dot)com.

You have until noon Friday (PST), the 30th, to submit your work. If you have not submitted by that point in time, we will assume you have dropped out (if you are an artist, this means we will be desperately searching for a pinch hitter… so please do not leave us hanging). The posting schedule will be up on Friday night, and posting will begin Tuesday, February 3rd.

Further details about posting will go up with the posting schedule. You will be responsible for posting your own work to AO3. We will provide a tutorial showing how to add it to the Sabriel Big Bang collection.

The day has arrived! It’s time for authors to submit your completed rough drafts! Please send them via email to sabrielbigbang (at) gmail (dot) com, along with the following information:

  • Big Bang or Little Bang?

  • Name/Tumblr URL (or LiveJournal, if no Tumblr account):

  • Summary (Be descriptive, but no more than a paragraph! Your artist will choose which fics to claim based on this description):

  • Rating:

  • Warnings (Think of how you’d tag your fic. Please warn appropriately for the sake of our artists):

  • Word Count

Please send your draft as an attachment, not in the body of the email itself. You have until midnight Pacific Standard Time to send in your draft.

Thank you so much to our wonderful authors! We’re all looking forward to your amazing work!

Hello again, Fearless Writers!

The upgrade/downgrade option day has arrived. If you signed up for a big bang, but your fic only meets little bang requirements, then you can comment here to downgrade. Likewise, if you signed up for a little bang, but your fic has grown to exceed 20,000 words, you can now upgrade to a big bang!

Things to keep in mind: If you upgrade to a big bang, yet fall short on the draft deadline, we can't make exceptions and you'll subsequently be out of this year's challenge. If you downgrade to a little bang, but end up exceeding big bang length in the end, you will still be considered a little bang author and won't receive art for your fic.

Drafts are due on December 15th, and while we're certainly sympathetic to any situations that crop up, we simply cannot offer any extensions. Whether writing a big bang or little bang, you must have your draft submitted by the due date. Since that is just a month from now, you should have some idea of how things are going to shape up for your fic length-wise.

If you don't need to swap anything around, then feel free to ignore this post!

Comments are screened for your privacy.
