The claiming is now complete, and emails have been sent to all authors (copied to the artists) linking to a Photobucket folder containing the art. If you're a writer (or artist) and you haven't received the email, check your spam folder and if you still can't find it, please email or PM the mods. Note that to download the art you may need to enlarge the image using the magnifying glass symbol, then you'll be able to R-click and save. Happy writing!
All the art has been claimed once, yay!

So we're now in the second round of claiming. That means that any art starred only once can still be claimed. If you haven't yet claimed, or are keen as mustard to write two stories, head on over to the Claiming Post. Remember though, that if you choose two artworks to write for, your main priority has to be the one where you're the sole author, as we want all the art to have a story.
...and we're a little worried that the opening time might have been unclear, as we are missing several writers who signed up. If you signed up as a writer, you can post your art claims now.

(If you are having trouble logging in with Open ID or any other issue, please do not hesitate to contact us via PM or email.)
The claiming post is now up for viewing here. As it is locked, you will need to be logged in to either DW or OpenID and be a member of the community to see it (i.e., be signed up as an artist or as a writer). Please let us know here if you are having any difficulties seeing the post.

ETA: Membership is only open to people who are signed up as artists or authors. Please do not request membership if you aren't. You will be able to see finished art and stories in a few months if you are subscribed to the comm. (Sorry, but the members-only part is all administrative necessity.)
We're starting to get some queries so a quick update seemed in order :)

We have lots of great art and are just waiting on a couple of final pieces. The Claiming post will go up on the Dreamwidth [community profile] sgareversebang  side, visible to members of that comm only, on March 9th. It will be locked to comments for a couple of days so writers get a chance to look at all the lovely art and to make a list of their top several choices.

Then the actual Claiming will be at at (about) 00.01 (midnight) UTC/GMT on March 11th. When is that where you live? - World Clock Link.

Two things you might need to arrange to get ready for this:

1) Almost all the authors are now members of the Dreamwidth [community profile] sgareversebang  community - but if you're not, just go to the DW comm and join up as a member in the usual way. Organize OpenID for yourself if you need this and haven't already done so.

2) If you can't join in at the Claiming time, you can arrange for a friend (who would need to be a member of the DW comm) to comment for you with your list of choices, as a proxy. Or you can ask the mods to be your proxy and post your list for you. Email us at sgareversebang@gmail.com to let us know about any need for a proxy.

It's getting exciting! See you all at Claiming time.
This is a reminder for those artists who haven't as yet emailed us their art. The deadline to submit it to us is March 4th!

You should have all received the previous email with details of how to submit your art, and the headers we need. If you want that email sent to you again then comment here or email us at sgareversebang@gmail.com

To all the artists who have sent in their art - \o/ \o/ and THANKS!

As usual, our deadline for the art submissions is midnight on March 4th, Midway Island time. :) If you need a (small) extension to complete your work, or are having any technical problems emailing it in etc. please do email us as above or PM [personal profile] mific on either comm, so that we can help. We'll need to make the Claiming Post public a couple of days before March 11th though, so there's not a lot of wriggle-room for slightly late submissions.

Thank you, and happy arting!
Author sign-ups for the SGA Reverse Big Bang close February 28th -- just over a week from today! We already have fantastic art waiting: Gen, Adventure, Team, the Women of Stargate, Whump, some pretty amazing Alternate Universes....

We would love to have more authors! Please drop by the sign-ups @ LiveJournal or Dreamwidth. The rules are here. We have a Support Comm open to participants which was very active last year, and will help with cheerleading, beta-reading, or whatever you need. If you are nervous about the challenge of writing 10,000 words, or thinking about returning to SGA after an absence, or are otherwise on the fence, please talk to us.

Schedule:
Claiming: March 11th, time TBD
Drop-out deadline for authors: May 6th
Check-in: TBD
Posting period: Roughly May 19th to June 13th

If you are already signed up: Encourage your friends to have a go, if they write in SGA! ♥
And please, if you haven't already, join up as a member of both the DW and LJ communities. You can't see the Claiming post unless you're signed on to the DW comm, and you'll need to be a member of both comms for eventual posting. You can join up here at the comms, or ask us to send you another invite.
We discovered recently that the site which had hosted all the art for the 2010 and 2011 SGA Reversebangs was defunct, so none of those art links worked any more. As some of you will know, we've been retrieving the art by contacting the artists, authors and the past mod, [personal profile] mashimero. Through a combination of these efforts, we now have it all back, yay! The Masterlists are all rebuilt and functional again, as are the individual 2010 posts which had to be recreated as the mods had changed in the intervening years.
Links to the Masterlists are in the links lists at the DW and LJ comms, and are here:

Summary: It started with a flash of white light and pain. Then nothing.
Notes: Huge thanks to Stealth Dragon/[personal profile] kriadydragon , beta extraordinaire! Also, huge thanks to [personal profile] in_the_bottle for the beautiful image that inspired this fic! Takes place in some vague period after the end of the series, so spoilers for all seasons. Warnings for bad language and mentions of painful things done by bad people. Fic title borrowed from the image title which was borrowed from the song Kellswater by Loreena McKennitt.

Just a brief post as a double-check. An email with the information about the guidelines for artworks and art submission guidelines has been sent to all artists, with a couple of people getting PMs. If you signed on as an artist and haven't seen this email or PM, check your spam folder. If you still can't locate the email, please contact us via an email to sgareversebang@gmail.com or by messaging us on DW or LJ.
One brief addendum to the email - the link we gave to a site that used to have the code to create non-spoilery "blackout warnings" (the gray or black boxes that you highlight to see the content) is no more. Here's how to do it:

Cut and paste this code after Warnings: <span style="background-color:black"><font color="black">your spoiler or warning here</span></font>
(you can change the color to gray, but both background color and font color need to be the same.)

We're also keen to recruit some more Authors, as we have a great turn-out of Artists this year - so tell all your friends and encourage them to join!      Author sign-ups on DW    Author sign-ups on LJ

Summary: General Stanley A. McChrystal got himself relieved of duty in Afghanistan on purpose. He has other problems to solve and the answer to at least one of them seems to be in Pegasus.

General Stanley A McChrystal is a real person and this is a work of total fiction. No harm is meant in this work and any interpretations of the General's character or any of his actions are totally my own.

Pairing(s): none
Summary: Stuck temporarily on a truly alien world that in no way resembles British Columbia, a childhood fear of camping is the least Dr. McKay's worries.
Notes: totally G-rated! Extrapolation of alien flora and fauna.

Title: The Firebirds of Calneh: A Rodney McKay Adventure

Wordcount: ~5700
Rating: PG-13
Pairing(s): McKay/Sheppard

Summary: The secret of the ZPMs is revealed! Alas, it turns out that some time over the past few years, Rodney McKay has developed a conscience.
Notes: This story contains some images of violence against animals, so please don't read it if you're sensitive to that. In the fine tradition of the Stargate franchise, I stole my mythology from all over the place, so please don't read if you're sensitive to that, either.
Also, each part of the fic is exactly 550 words long because a) I wanted to see if I could to that and b) I'm just that bored. Many thanks go to [personal profile] neevebrody for her wonderful beta, and of course to [personal profile] bmouse for not only letting me play with her amazing artwork, but for indulging me when I made a hash of it. A huge thank-you also to [personal profile] mashimero for running this challenge and for being so patient with me.

Summary: Radek struggles, sometimes, with the feeling that he's an outsider to the closeness that Sheppard's team share. Offworld rescue missions tend to put things in perspective, though.
Notes: Many thanks to [personal profile] almost_clara for her inspiring art, and to [personal profile] perspi for invaluable brainstorming assistance! And thank you to [personal profile] mashimero for running the exchange, and especially for being a patient and understanding mod when I turned out to be an extremely scatterbrained writer. This takes place in early season four, before "Missing".

Notes: This fic exists solely because of the inspiring art by [profile] antares04a, with whom I had a great time discussing what this story could be. Once it was done, I was extremely lucky to have dear friends help me make it better, so big thank yous to [personal profile] davincis_girl, [personal profile] hitlikehammers and [personal profile] bachlava. Also, much thanks to the mods at [community profile] sgareversebang who made it possible in the first place (and for their infinite patience).
