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!

Primary Fanwork created by Volrosso:

Title: Normal's Just a Setting on a Washing Machine
Format: Fic
Bands: My Chemical Romance, Mindless Self Indulgence
Pairings: Ray Toro/Gerard Way
Size: 70,000 words
Rating: Teen
Warnings: Homophobia
Summary:
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.
The new neighbour has stupid glasses, a supernatural ability to befriend everyone he's ever talked to, and an annoying sort of personality that Gerard really wishes he could hate.

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.

Pairings: implied Lindsey Ballato/Gerard Way
Size: 29 songs, 125 MB zipped file
Rating: NR
Warnings: Possible lyrical mentions of rape/non-con, suicide, self-harm, graphic violence, eating disorders, addiction, abuse.
Summary:
A double album mix of songs to go with aethel's amazingly creative fanwork. For Gerard, I put together a mix of songs that not only evokes his alienness, but is also the music that drew him to Earth. For Lindsey, it's an album of women punk rockers.

Title: No Future In Our Dreaming

Format: fic

Bands: My Chemical Romance, The Used

Pairings: Frank/Ray, Frank/Gerard, (brief and incidental Gerard/Bert), Frank/Jamia

Size: 48,908 words

Rating: Explicit

Warnings: sexual content with both characters under 18; drug use and addiction; depression/mental illness; dubious consent; character deaths (minor and off-screen)

Summary:
Frank and Gerard are Americans from Jersey who meet for the first time in 1976 as expats in London. Frank has fallen in with a group of London punks whose noise and rage offer more than the study-abroad year he abandoned. Music has always touched him deeply, but he's reluctant to dredge up the complicated past. Gerard is a struggling photographer and a hanger-on from the art school crowd. He possibly takes too many pills. He may be losing track of where to go next with his art.

1970s Brit punk AU. Remix of Giovanni’s Room, by James Baldwin.

Title: and me here on the ground
Format: podfic
Bands: my chemical romance, fall out boy
Pairings: Frank/Gerard
Size: 3 hours, 18 minutes
Rating: explicit

Warnings: none apply

Summary:
Frank's worked hard to build a life for himself in the city of Jersey, where dragons swoop and dive over the river, and every day is divided by the ringing of the city bells. He knows the streets of the city like he knows the the tattoos on the backs of his hands, and he's content with what he has: a job as a bike courier, friends who love to give him shit, and a crush on a professor of art history at the local university.

But he's also got a secret—one he's been running from for a long time. But all it takes is one delivery to a mysterious, quite-probably-magical bookshop to show Frank that there are some things you can’t outrun. Especially since he’s finally found a place that he doesn’t want to leave.

Title: Love Will Tear Us Apart
Format: Fic
Bands: Fall Out Boy
Pairings: Pete/Patrick
Size: 30,265 words
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: None
Summary:
Pete and Patrick spend so much time together, it doesn't occur to them that they're soul bonded until the hiatus breaks all of their usual routines. Pete feels like he's been handed everything he could ever want, but Patrick's suspicious of the bond and eager to pursue his solo career. Somehow they have to find a way to make it work.

Title: Fan Art for Love Will Tear Us Apart by melusina
Format: Art
Bands: Fall Out Boy
Pairings: Pete/Patrick
Size: Large
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: None
Summary:
As he listens, lyrics start to bubble up in his brain--perfectly turned phrases that are both strikingly familiar and completely new. They're exactly right for the music Patrick's playing, and Pete knows from experience that if he doesn't get them down quickly, he'll lose them. He looks around, but there's not so much as a pencil or a scrap of paper in the room. The words are coming faster and faster, and Pete begins to panic as he realizes that the earlier lyrics are already slipping away from him. Part of him is afraid that if he speaks, he'll break the quiet, companionable mood, but it's like the words are building up inside of him, and he'll explode if he doesn't get them out. He opens his mouth and tries to explain to Patrick what he's thinking, but all that comes out is a string of random syllables.

Featuring four people who weren't in a band called My Chemical Romance, a ten year old who wasn't a spy, a diner that no one can find on a map, a totalitarian government (of course) that manufactures all the maps, improbable geography, clothes that matter, music that matters, food that doesn't matter all that much, and a cat who may or may not be a metaphor. Fun Ghoul tries to help; Party Poison needs to keep everyone alive; Kobra Kid is called on to dispense wisdom; Jet Star watches out and keeps spirits up. And Grace, she just wants to go home.

Primary fanwork by LadySmutterella

Front Row Seats (41983 words) by johanirae, LadySmutterella
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: My Chemical Romance, Bandom
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Frank Iero/Gerard Way
Characters: Gerard Way, Frank Iero, Mikey Way, Ray Toro
Additional Tags: Animal Transformation, Drug Use, Addiction, Angst
Series: Part 1 of Front Row Seats
Summary:

When Gerard swallows the pill the guy hands him, he knows without question that he's not coming back from Japan. One way or another, metaphorically or literally, this is it. He's had enough. He's done.


When he wakes up the next morning though, something is seriously different. There's fur where there should be skin, paws where there should be hands, and when he opens his mouth to scream - the sound that comes out is unmistakably a bark.


He's not stupid. Either he's still high (likeliest option) or he's been tasked with some sort of magical fucking transformation quest with mystical requirements to fulfill before he can get his body back (ridiculous option). 


When his band mates barge into his hotel room, frantically rifling through his things for clues and calling around to the police, the embassy, hospitals and the morgue - the likelihood of option 2 rises horrifyingly. Trouble is, he has no fucking idea what he's supposed to learn or find or which problem he's meant to solve to get himself out of this mess.  


Stuck in a foreign country, in a foreign body, and in a race against time - is Gerard going to fulfill his quest before it's too late?

So?

It's clear that Bandom has quieted down significantly on the journaling platform side of things; we didn't have any problems with claims for Wave One in 2015, but for Wave Two there were several primary works that didn't get claimed by complement creators, and that was very disheartening, not only to the mods, but for the creators who participated as well.

So, maybe we need to change things up a little bit. My thoughts are this:

  • Have only one wave of BBB (with previous Wave One requirements: story of 20k+ words, podfic of 20k+ words, mix of 40 songs, art you've spent 40-60 hrs on, 4 minutes of vidding)
  • Sign ups start March 10th, claims for complements around June 10th, final fanworks due September 10th (note the longer creation period).
  • Continue allowing both primary and complement fanworks to be in any format (writing, art/crafts, mix, podfic, vid).
  • Monthly check-ins (just to keep everyone on track - the creation periods are longer with this schedule).

    So, here's a poll! Anyone can participate, please signal boost this as much as possible, because I need to know if there's enough interest to sustain a BBB this year.

    I'll keep the poll open for a week, so don't put off taking it. It's short, and I'd like to hear from a wide range of people.

    And that's a thing, too. If you have a Tumblr and are active on the platform, please follow the Bandom Big Bang Tumblr account and reblog our posts. We don't seem to be reaching a lot of Bandom Tumblrites, and I'd like that to change.

    If you have questions, concerns, or comments, please email the mods at bandombigbang @ gmail

    -aka!mod

    ETA:

    One thing I do want to point out is that in the past, the timing has been:
  • Wave One (higher requirements), a bit under 4 months for 20k words and the equivalent for primary fanworks.
  • Wave Two (lower requirements), a bit under 3 months for 10k words and the equivalent for primary fanworks.

    For 2016, we're looking at a bit under 6 months for 20k words and the equivalent for primary fanworks. A few people seem to think that the schedule is tougher for 2016, when it's actually more time to get your fanwork completed.
  • August 2017
