Hi everyone! How're you all doing? I hope you had a nice weekend. I did. Lazy but good. I have some stuff I want to pimp. Yeah, still not a real life post but you can blame the X-Men fandom that is currently eating my brain. Really. I mean, there are so many fics and they're all so good. Oh well, having a life is overrated anyway, right? ;D

Since we're on the topic of X-Men, I'm going to start out with pimping the xmenbigbang. It's not limited to the First Class movie but you can definitely sign up for it. I did- don't judge me. I have already been working on a Charles/Erik fic and I figured might've as well make it count for something. The minimum word count for authors is 15k. Author sign-ups close on August 1st and rough drafts are due September 26th.

Sign ups for the xmenbigbang are now open!

Author Sign Ups | Artist Sign Ups

Next, maybeitsatest has its July prompt up. It's 'time stands still'. I know July is more than half over but there is still plenty of time to submit prompts and/or answer the ones there. Art and/or fic is welcome.

Moving on, rounds_of_kink has opened claiming for Round 19. There are plenty of prompts, plus a bunch that aren't attached to one particular fandom. If you're interested, check it out here.

Now, a friending meme:

a multifandom friending meme ☆彡

Last but not least, the Superman/Batman Big Bang has opened for sign-ups. I'm a bit late on this one, but author sign-ups are still open, until the 21st of this month. All 'verses are welcome and your fic can be gen/het/slash, as long as the Superman & Batman relationship is the focus. If you want more info, go here.

That's all for now! Take care everyone and have an awesome week. :)

oh, first class is so amazing, i've been swept away by charles/erik myself.
i was going to rec you some fic the last time you asked, but sadly i never found the time :( any way, i read this one last night: http://archiveofourown.org/works/215736 Time to Grow by zarah5, (you might have read it already, i think it's big) and it's so pretty and a nice "what if" fic, everyone should read it!

good luck with your big bang!

They're just irresistible! And no worries. I can understand how life can get busy and finding recs can take time. I don't think I've read that one but I will definitely check it out! Thank you for the link. :D

Thanks! So far so good but I'm hoping my muses will stick around long enough to finish. :)

What is a big bang ??? :-O

A Big Bang is a type of challenge- to write a longer fic or make art. You sign up to be an author (or a beta, cheerleader, artist, etc). Usually it's 50k but these days, they're shorter (25k, 10k, etc). Then artists claim the story they want to make art for. I hope that made sense, lol.
