Posting date claims!

Hello, everyone!

August is coming on fast, which means that it's nearly time for you to put the finishing touches on your stories and get them all prettied up for posting. We hope you've managed to make some progress since the last time we checked in with you, but if you haven't, that's okay! While we want writers to submit their final drafts to us a week from today (July 22), "final" to us means that your story is 90% complete - so if your story is on track to meet the minimum of 10,000, your drafts next week should be between 8.5k and 9.5k, ideally. Obviously you're welcome to work right up until the posting day, but we would like to know that you're nearly there or on track to be there. :)

Now - posting days. This is where the mixers need to start paying attention again.

Mixers, please check in with your writer and decide on a date in August that works for you to post both the mix and the story. Once you've come to a decision, comment on this post with your creative team info (mixer & writer usernames) and the date you've chosen for posting. If too many teams pick the same date (more than 3, let's say), we'll ask the team who commented last if there's another date that works for them, but otherwise feel free to choose any day between 8/1 and 8/31.

Writers, if your mixer doesn't contact you about posting dates within 48 hours, please email them to make sure they've seen this!

A quick note about art: unfortunately it doesn't look like any of the artists who signed up at the beginning of the challenge stuck around (with the exception of the writer who is making art for their own story). We wish that wasn't the case, but with a small multi-fandom big bang like this one, it's not that surprising. We hope that the writers aren't too disappointed, and we're sorry it worked out this way. We're leaving that post open in case anyone decides last minute that they'd like to create art for one or more of the stories.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions!

Art Claims

Happy Sunday, all! Here, at last, are the art claims. :) Below the cut you will find the stories that are eligible for claiming. Some of the stories have summaries; some do not.

Artists, to claim a story, please comment on this post with the following information: the number attached to your desired story; your username; your email address. The mods will then respond to your comment to confirm that the story is yours, and then you will receive an email from the mod email account with the author information and story draft attached. It is up to you to keep in touch with your author between now and when the art is due.

Art can be in any medium you choose.

NOTE FOR WRITERS AND ARTISTS: due to the schedule change, final drafts for both art and fic will now be due on July 22. Posting date claims will go up on July 15.

Please also note that these are not all the stories that we hope to have posted in August. Some authors opted not to participate in art claims. Also, the word counts are as of draft submission, not necessarily final.

Rough Draft Submissions

Posted by mixupmod on 2014.06.07 at 09:29
TODAY IS THE DAY FOR DRAFT SUBMISSIONS! Or, well, today and tomorrow are the days. :D

Here's how this will work:

  1. Send your drafts to the mod email account ( in any of the following formats: google doc, rich text, text, Word doc, or whatever word processor file type you happen to use (we really just prefer you not send it to us in the body of the email, that's all)

  2. Email subject line should say something like "BBMU rough draft submission"

  3. Include the following information in the body of your email: story title (can be tentative/a placeholder), rough draft word count, fandom, mix title

  4. Please indicate whether you are creating art for your own story or not (those of you who say they will be creating their own will NOT be included in the art claims post)

PLEASE SUBMIT THESE TO US BY MIDNIGHT EST 6/8 (tomorrow, Sunday). The art claims post will go up next weekend (6/14-6/15) after we've confirmed that we have all the stories for those of you still participating in the event. We cannot guarantee that everyone will receive art for their stories, seeing as we have a limited pool of artists.

As always, if you have any questions, comment on this post or include them in your rough draft submission emails. Thanks, everyone!

Important Notice!

Posted by mixupmod on 2014.05.31 at 07:31
Hi, everyone! Today is supposed to be rough draft submission day, but we're going to push that back by a week. ROUGH DRAFTS ARE NOW DUE ON JUNE 7TH. As such, other claims/due dates will be pushed back accordingly, though we will try to keep the August posting schedule in place.

We apologize for being uncommunicative over the last few weeks. As we're sure you know, important work and familial obligations outside fandom tend to come up suddenly and when we least expect them. We hope that you're all still as excited to participate in this event as we are, and if you'd prefer to drop out, we understand that completely. Please let us know ASAP if that's the case!

To clarify a few things about rough draft submissions for the writers:

  • Drafts should be around 8k, which is 80% of the minimum word count of 10k. We would like there to be a definitive beginning, middle, and ending, but you're not obligated to have your entire story near to completion yet.

  • We will not be sad if your drafts are only 5-6k at this point. We just want there to be a substantial amount of story already.

  • Please submit these drafts typed up, either in a file attachment on the email (more details about that next week during actual submissions) or in a Google document.

  • Writers are more than welcome to create their own art for their story. There will be a place on the submission form to indicate that you'll be doing that instead of submitting it for art claims.

Again, we apologize for not being as communicative as we should, and we thank you for your patience. Please remember that if you have a question and the mod account doesn't respond within 24 hours, you should feel free to directly PM one of us.

Hi guys! Drafts are due May 31, so we hope you're all writing! On that date we will be asking for your fic to be a minimum of 80% complete (8k due to the minimum word count of 10k) and for all remaining scenes to be outlined. If, for whatever reason, you need to drop out, please comments here (comments are screened) so we can find your mixer a pinch hit ASAP. Otherwise, go ahead and respond to our poll.
