Friending Meme!

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.



The mods' collective excitement about this year's Bandom Big Bang is mega-intense! We're definitely thrilled to see people returning to participate and equally as happy for all of the first timers as well.

One of the best ways to make sure you get to the finish line is to have a lot of support. Cheerleaders, productivity partners, and betas all help keep you focused on the finish line. And it might feel like it's a little early in the game to be recruiting minions friends, it really isn't.

So look at the people in your life, figure out who has the time to help you out. Who's gonna text you every few days to see how your fanwork's going? Who's gonna help you brainstorm your fanwork or do productivity sprints with you? Who's going to beta your fanwork?

Friending memes are a great way to meet new friends that share a fandom, but it's also a great place to offer your services as a minion, or to ask for people to volunteer to be a minion. So, here is one to get you started. (Full disclosure: we've adapted the friending meme from the [community profile] the_neverenders comm.)

I am in need of a minion! (specify type): Probably someone to do word sprints with. Just, you know, keep the motivation going.

My favorite people in these bands are: PATRICK, MY LOVE. And everyone else. There is a lot of love in my heart for these nerds.
Relationships I ship within these bands are: Ah...there are many. I'm especially a fan of Brendon/Patrick, Pete/Patrick, Brendon/Spencer, Frank/Gerard.

I am willing to be a minion! (specify type): I'll cheerlead, talk over ideas, beta, anything really. I want to get involved!
I am in need of a minion! (specify type): I suppose someone to bounce ideas off of? I get caught places and would like someone to reassure me that my ideas don't suck. And also someone to poke me and make sure that I'm actually writing (I tend to let things sit for too long sometimes!).

A random fact about myself: I've never done BBB before and I'm relatively new to bandom (just over a year now, ish) so I don't know what I'm doing (at all, someone help me) and am crazy nervous, but also very excited! :)
My hope for BBB is: To create something fantastic that I'm proud of and that others can enjoy (and get this really angsty fic out of my head and into the world at long last).
