As we've past the date I set for sign ups to close and only two people have signed up (thanks for the interest guys), the minibang will not be happening at this time after all.

If you are interested in a future 'bang of any sort, message me and maybe we can try again. But it just can't be done with only two people. Sorry.

Beta Sign Ups

Beta Sign Ups will remain open indefinitely

For anyone unfamiliar, a beta is someone who will work with you during the writing process. Betas can serve as editors, sounding boards, hand holders, they can help you brainstorm, help you work through problems, or just generally be a friend to whine to about how difficult the creative process can be.

For anyone who wants to participate in the event, but either doesn't have the time or the inclination to submit a story or art, this is a great way to get involved. I advise you toward the FAQs & Rules if you have any questions.

To sign up simply comment on this post using the template below. Betas will not be assigned, authors and artists can look through the comments on this post and contact the beta(s) who seem like they will be the best fit.

I am not requiring the works for this challenge to be beta'd. However, I very strongly encourage it.

Your comment should look like:
Username (platform):(tumblr, AO3, livejournal, etc. You can put more than one, this is so that you can be contacted when/if necessary. If you would like to include a link that would be helpful)
Contact me through: (here leave your e-mail address, or a link to your profile on the platform of your choosing (tumblr, livejournal, fanfiction.net, etc) where the author or artist can contact you)

I am willing to beta: (when filling out this area please be aware of your own limitations. Some people are very sensitive to certain pairings or subject matter. Be aware of your triggers and squicks and make sure you list them. We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable experience)
Type: Fic and/or Art
Ratings and Warnings:
Characters and Pairings in fic:
Other:

**Note: Please keep in mind that the creative process is a very delicate and personal thing. Your style and the style of the author/artist/beta you attempt to work with may clash. Please try to keep things civil and if it doesn't work out let the party(/ies) involved know and try to find someone else to work with.

****Also note: No beta is under any obligation whatsoever to agree to work with an artist/author who has contacted them. Betas can absolutely say no and do not need to justify why.
