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 (bigbangmixup@gmail.com) 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.


Writer Check In

Posted by mixupmod on 2014.04.02 at 12:16
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.

Poll #1963008 Writer Check In

How is your draft going?

I'm 75-80% finished. It's looking good!
I'm 50-75% finished. There's still time!
I'm 25-50% finished. I work best under pressure!
Err. I have an outline and I've listened to my mix. That counts, right?
Sorry dude, I'm out.

Good luck everyone!

Important Note For Authors

Posted by mixupmod on 2014.02.19 at 13:52
Tags: ,
For the first twenty-four hours, only those authors who have officially signed up will be able to claim a mix. After that period, we will open up claims for everyone - including those who wish to write a second fic. For this reason, author signups will close just before previews, at 3am EST on February 21st.

If you have signed up as an author, you do not have to claim a mix.

Final Call For Mixes!

Posted by mixupmod on 2014.02.16 at 10:46
Tags: ,
We currently have a vast number of mixes in our inbox, but there are still several missing. If you happen to still have a mix due, you have the extended deadline of MIDNIGHT EST. Please attempt to send in your draft to us, and remember that it's just that - a draft. We only require a list of 8 songs and the required information found HERE. Links for downloads/song sources are not required until after claims.

If we don't hear from you by the aforementioned time, an email will be sent out. If you do not respond to this (or opt to drop out) within 24 hours, we will consider you no longer part of this challenge. By all means you are still free to sign ups an author and/or artist!

If you want to officially drop out with no email, please reply to this post. Thanks everyone!
