All of the summaries have been claimed, thank you to everyone who signed up as a complement creator!

The claiming post is now open for double claims. Complements are due October 1, 2017, so there's still plenty of time to complete a complement. If you wanted to participate but didn't find a summary to youR liking still available, here's a second chance.

If you have already claimed a summary, you must turn your complement work in before you'll be allowed to claim another.

Read the rules first. Then sign up if you haven't already done so, and then claim a summary at the claims post.

There are still three summaries that need to have complement creators. If you are interested, or if you know of someone who is, please go here to claim a summary. And please help spread the word; we don't want these summaries to be without complements. \o/

#06

Media type: fic
Bands: My Chemical Romance
Relationships: Frank Iero/Ray Toro/Mikey Way/Gerard Way and all possible combinations thereof
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Foursome m/m/m/m, Something Made Them Do It, Dubious Consent, Mpreg, Alternate Universe: Everyone Lives/No-one Dies, Sibling Incest, angst with a happy ending
Summary: [Danger Days: True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (based on music videos rather than comics)] An ordinary skirmish in the desert with dracs leads to Frank taking the brunt of a new weapon - and ends with him pregnant, furious, and freaking out. When the shit hits the fan and he gets kidnapped and taken back for interrogation by Korse, and forced to listen to the contents of the Traffic Report, something in him snaps. This fucking dystopia has gone on too long.

#13

Media type: podfic
Bands: My Chemical Romance
Relationships: Frank Iero/Gerard Way (side pairing Alicia Simmons/Mikey Way)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: brief references to past alcohol abuse
Summary: While on tour, everyone in the band except Frank mysteriously turns into a girl. Gerard uses the opportunity to get into Frank's pants; Alicia does the same with Mikey.

#20

Media type: fic
Bands: My Chemical Romance, Mindless Self Indulgence
Relationships: Frank Iero/Gerard Way, Lindsey Ballato/Frank Iero/Gerard Way
Rating: Teen to Mature
Warnings: violence; character death; suicide (minor character, off-screen).
Summary: Western genre, set in the 1890s American West. Gunfights! Desert pursuit! Horses and pistols! Vendettas! Frank and Gerard made it through their first cattle drive together, but now Frank is gone and Gerard doesn’t know what to do. All he knows is that it has something to do with the preacher man. Turns out, Lindsey is looking for the preacher man too, but she won’t say why. Gerard has reasons enough to hate the man, but Lindsey has more—reasons that stretch back into her family, her childhood, and what brought her out west in the first place. Like the hero of any Western story, she wants revenge. Ray is a New Mexico lawman who has to decide what to do with Lindsey’s quest, and whether to allow her to bring vigilante justice to his ranching town.

Hey everyone!

There was enough of a positive response to the idea of pushing the due date for everything back by a month, so it's official!

Primary rough drafts due: July 1st (fanworks must be 80% complete)
Primary claims period: July 7th - July 14th

Here is the third check in post, mirrored on our Tumblr.

This is an optional activity, with no deadlines. Answer now, answer later, or skip it completely.

Sooo, May is just about half over, and the draft deadline is looming rather scarily. June 1st is right around the corner, and I know a lot of people are not ready for the deadline. Are you?

We're thinking about pushing back the draft deadline by a month (and consequently the final deadline) - what do you think? Survey here. Let us know what your opinion is.

Otherwise, we hope your creation process is going smoothly, or at least as smoothly as possible.

Comment to this post, or reblog on Tumblr, and:

1. tell us about your favorite trope/narrative kink
2. tell us a little bit about the story (or stories, if you haven't settled on just one) you want to tell
3. comment to someone else's comment and cheer them on

Remember, you're not being graded; there is no wrong answer, because all answers are right.

Let's kick our creativity into gear!

No matter what kind of fanwork you're planning on creating for this challenge, at the heart of it is a story that you want to tell. And until you have an idea of what that story is, it's hard find the inspiration and creativity to start on your fanwork.

So that's the first step. Think about the story you want to tell. It can be detailed and specific (I want FOB as werewolves!) or more general (I want band-as-chosen-family FEELS!) You can tell more than one story, combining them into a sticky sweet concoction of trope-y goodness. You can have a theme, a idée fixe, a narrative kink.

Comment to this post, or reblog on Tumblr, and:

1. tell us what is your favorite type of drink
2. tell us a little bit about the story (or stories, if you haven't settled on just one) you want to tell
3. comment to someone else's comment and cheer them on

Remember, you're not being graded; there is no wrong answer, because all answers are right.

Let's kickstart our creativity!

This is the place to leave a comment about how your work is progressing, if you've started it. It's also a place to talk about the fact that you haven't started your fanwork (which is probably most of us).

This is a place to cheer each other on, and to get a little motivation.

If you're still in need of a minion, leave a comment. Read the other comments to see if you can be a minion for someone else.

If you're doing some kind of other thing, like a network on Tumblr or a group watch of something Bandom-ish and you're open to more people joining, leave a comment.

Please keep this space positive and judgement free.

tl;dr friending memes are a good way to make new friends, but also help develop creative relationships with people who will keep you focused on your Bandom Big Bang fanwork.

Important things to remember:

•You don't have to have a DW to participate - just comment anonymously.
•You don't have to be signed up as a fanwork creator to participate.
•The official BBB Tumblr ([tumblr.com profile] bandombb) and Twitter ([twitter.com profile] bandombigbang) are only for announcements, but there is an inspirational Tumblr that you can contribute to at any time by joining the [tumblr.com profile] bbb-network.
•If you are signed up as a fanwork creator, you can opt to be poked and prodded by mod email.

Congrats to everyone who managed to finish the challenge. And if you didn't finish, thanks for trying.

Great big thanks to [personal profile] general_jinjur for stepping in as a pinch hitter.

Please take the time to check out the wonderful range of fanworks that were created for this challenge, everything from art to mixes to fic to awesome knitted stuffed cats to zines to podfic. And please try to take the time to leave a kudos or a comment. The very worse reaction a creator can get is indifference.

Additionally, spread the word. If you liked a particular fanwork, Tweet about it, rec it on Tumblr, post a recs list on your journal. Tell your friends. Share the love. Everyone put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into their fanworks, and it'd be nice to see some appreciation for that.

Up next, a discussion post about the future of Bandom Big Bang.

Without further ado, the 2016 Bandom Big Bang master list of amazing fanworks!

Gerard has an astounding imagination, a lot of time on his hands, and a group of willing individuals who are more than happy to go along with whatever nonsense games he comes up with.

Primary Fanwork created by [tumblr.com profile] caimani/[archiveofourown.org profile] doc3:

Title: Hot American Summer, or The Hardest Thing to Swallow
Format: fic
Bands: The Academy Is..., Cobra Starship
Pairings: William Beckett/Gabe Saporta, Mike Carden/Adam Siska, Andy "The Butcher" Mrotek/Adam Siska
Size: 40,082
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Graphic violence
Summary:
Between the pressures of the 2007 Honda Civic Tour and keeping track of the four werewolves that make up the rest of his band, Bill has his hands full. Now is not the time to be attempting a casual relationship with Gabe Saporta. But things happen (as they always do) and Bill finds himself swept back in Gabe's arms for a heated summer.

Meanwhile, the wolves have their own conflicts. Bill's overbearing protective presence fades to neglect as the summer wears on, leaving them frustrated and quick to latch onto other distractions.
