You MUST turn in at least 7.5k, or you are out. Well, if you have 7.2k we’ll take it in because close enough, just don’t turn in 5k, you feel? The fic doesn’t have to be finished by august 27, you have to finish it by the time you post it, which is picked by lottery but is october 30 or later.

You can find the entire event schedule here. The work must be complete on the day you post it, which can be anytime from november 1 to around december, depending on how many works we get..

Protip: Posts are tagged with the year in which they are relevant. Look for those tagged 2016. There used to be a difference, where mini bangs were >5k and big bangs were >15k, but I’ve unified them into one >7.5k  category. So, there is no mini or big distinction anymore.

enkalenk replied to your post:Seeing as how it’s very likely Tumblr will be shut…

Will you be setting up a cross-post to Livejournal at all?

I wasn’t planning on it, no, since tumblr officially crossposts to DW now and I have personal beef with LJ. But if the fam wants LJ, i can provide. (Also it just occured to me that there is a very dusty frostiron kinkmeme on LJ… Time to put it to work)

I’ve made a DREAMWIDTH ACCOUNT for us in case Yahoo does the thing they do. 

It’s yet to be be formatted and it’s still empty, but you can suscribe via an RSS feed and comment annonymously, so you will be able to see and reach us without a deamwidth account.

The content from Tumblr will be imported to the DW account soon, just in case. I will also be doing any announcement necessary via email. Since I don’t have the emails of everyone interested (just those of the people who participated last year and the writers who signed up for this round), I have made a MAILING LIST SIGN UP FORM, where you can pick what kind of news you want to receive.

Okay, we are 100% covered in the event of tumblr betraying us. We have the DW account, a soup.io and there’s always email.
(actually DW is so awesome I’m seriously considering moving the bang to there anyway? gosh it’s so good)

AUTHOR SIGN UPS ARE CLOSED! Stay tuned for our artist sign ups on august 1st!

frostironbang: (Default)

WHAT?

The Frostiron Bang is an event that pairs up writers and artists who work together to finish their bang before the deadline. Participating writers, which can be individuals or collaborating groups, must submit a complete story with a minimum of 7500 words, and in turn an artist or team of artists will create at least one piece of art for said story. 

WHEN?

The event happens yearly, beginning in July with Writer Sign Ups and ending in December with the last fic posted.

HOW?

Beginning July 1st, authors will be able to sign up by filling out a form with their information. Artists will be allowed to sign up starting August 1st. Both the author and artist must meet every deadline outlined in the schedule. Make sure to check out the rules.

WHERE?

All important information and updates will be posted to this blog, our tumblr and our soup.io. You can also suscribe to our mailing list. The bangs themselves will be posted to an archive of your choosing, such as AO3, ffnet, LJ, etc., although they will be linked here for your convenience.

WHO?

Anyone can participate! Participants are allowed to do multiple bangs and can participate as both a writer and an artist if they wish. Artists can make illustrations, manips, photo collages, graphics, videos, icons, fanmixes, etc. Even music played by the artist or crochet puppets — anything is valid so long as it represents the story without written words.

WHY?

For victory, glory, honor and to make our fandom proud!

Writing:

All works must be over 7.5k in wordcount. This much MUST be submitted on the day the drafts are due, along with the estimated wordcount for reference. Work must be new, as in never posted before, and must stand on its own. Sequels are allowed provided that no part of the sequel has been posted online before, and written in such a way that a new reader should not necessarily have to read the previous story to understand what's going on.

Art:

A minimum of one piece of art must be submitted for each story. Pieces of arts are: illustrations, comics, manips, photo collages, graphics, videos, gifsets, fanmixes (at least 8 songs and cover), composed music over 5 minutes long (can be spread over several tracks); anything goes as long as your art can be linked to or posted alongside its story. If you want to do something that isn't covered by that, ask the mods. Artists will claim stories in rounds. Once all signed-up artists have claimed a story, we will allow them to claim another. 

YOU MAY:

  • write AU
  • collaborate with another writer on the story
  • collaborate with another artist on the art
  • write about a relationship that isn't the traditional definition of "romantic", for example bromance or just sex or everything but sex, so long as Tony and Loki are in some sort of relationship
  • write in aditional pairings, so long as Loki/Tony is the focus
  • write a threesome with Loki and Tony
  • write more than one story
  • create as much art as you want for your claimed story
  • claim more than one story
  • post wherever you want

YOU MAY NOT:

  • Discuss plot details of your story publicly (e.g. yes with your beta or your BFF, not in your blog.)
  • Write RPF
  • Enter a story when you have already posted a part of it
  • Enter art you have already published
  • Write in any language other than English, with the exception of character dialogues (e.g. one character speaks in french sometimes) or made-up languages that are common knowledge (e.g. sindarin), and even then you must provide translations.
  • Plagiarize writing or art (seriously, don't do this, we don't actually want to ban anyone)
