how does this work (rules)

Generally: This is a reverse of the usual Big Bang challenge - each artist creates at least one piece of art, which is then posted anonymously and claimed by an author. Authors are then expected to write a fic (minimum of 5,000 words) based on the art they choose.

Overview: Artist and Author sign-ups open Friday, November 15th. Artists must submit at least one piece of art by Sunday, January 12th. This may feature any pairing (or no pairing) so long as it is either hockey themed or features a hockey player. For this challenge, crossovers are not allowed. The art will be posted anonymously, at which point authors can claim a piece. Authors will write a fic (minimum of 5,000 words) based on the art they choose.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a reverse bang?
A reverse bang is the opposite of a big bang. Instead of authors writing fanfiction and artists making art for that fic, it goes the other way around. The artists create art and the authors get to choose a piece of art to create fan fiction for.

How do I sign up?
When sign-ups start, two sign up posts will go up. One for authors, and one for artists.
