Check In #2

Mirrored on our Tumblr.

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



Once you've confirmed your email, you should have received a link to a quick survey - if you haven't taken the time to answer the survey, please do. If you haven't received the link, please contact the mods at bandombigbang at gmail.

One of the questions on the survey is about productivity buddies, first readers, betas, cheerleaders, accountability partners, etc. So that's what this post is about.

If you are looking for someone to help you out, use this helpful template for you to cut and paste into the comments:



If you are interested in helping someone out (you do not have to be a participant in BBB, but it's fine if you are), surf through the comments and see if there's someone who you think you'd be compatible with. If you find someone, comment to them and get in touch with each other.

Please help spread this around; the more help and support creators get, the more likely they are to finish their project. And more finished projects means more bandom fanworks to enjoy. \o/

Dude, you got this. I'm Central Time USA so I don't know if I'll always be around(because of my job's random schedule..but i have been known to stay up until like 4am central) but I'm up for cheerleading and a sounding board if you need it.

I LIKE hearing world-building and helping someone solidify their ideas.

What are you looking for: a productivity partner

What time zone are you in: EST

What band/characters/relationships do you think your fanwork is going to focus on: Welp, either Patrick/Pete (with some sprinkling of everyone else in bandom bc that is how I roll), or Fabulous Killjoys-who-aren't-technically-MCR.
What are you looking for: A beta would be really cool! I'd also be super happy with someone to just cry with and/or on as story happens.
What platforms do you use for real-time-ish interactions (Skype, Gchat, Kik, Twitter, email, something else): Skype or email, tumblr, less so Twitter but I'm there too.
What time zone are you in: CST!
Other important and/or relevant information: If I end up doing the Killjoys story, Kobra Kid/Poison is going to be a significant pairing. The story's an AU and they're not the Waybros, but I understand people who are put off by it, so there that is. There'll also be descriptions of illness, hunger, character death (no main characters), depression. No rape or sexual assault.
If I write the Peterick there aren't any warnings attached except fake-high fantasy shenanigans, and Pete Wentz just as a whole. (I kid, I kid. Mostly)

Are you excited? Or terrified? Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
