"A Year in the Life - Kyouko" - fiction by [personal profile] lysapadin.

Fandom(s): Katekyou Hitman Reborn
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Kyouko, Tsunako, Bianchi, Yamamoto, Gokudera, Reborn, Hana, Mochida
Wordcount | Rating: 15055 words | General audiences
Content Notes/Warnings: Skeevy sexual politics, genderswap, Kyouko revealing her awesome hidden depths, and the mafia. Part of Choice: The Betrothal Arc. Series Index.
Summary: In which Tsunako gives Kyouko a purpose.
Acknowledgements: Many, many gleeful thanks to the ever-marvelous [personal profile] esmenet for putting together a fanmix, Let Them Eat Cake for this fic. Go and check it out, because it's awesome!

The one problem, if it was a problem, was that Tsunako-chan went around so much with Yamamoto-kun and Gokudera-kun these days that it was next to impossible to get a word with her privately, which was something Kyouko dearly wanted to do.

"The Blow of a Knife" - fiction by damkianna.

Fandom(s): Children of Dune (2003 miniseries)
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Ensemble: Chani, Irulan, Alia, Jessica, Duncan 2.0, plus assorted minor canon characters and an OC or two. Canonical past relationships, hints of Alia/Duncan 2.0, and in my head the whole thing has come to serve as pre-Chani/Irulan but that might just be me.
Wordcount | Rating: 21,000 | PGish? Brief and inexplicit violence; not even so much as a cheek kiss.
Content Notes/Warnings: The premise, as should be clear from the summary, revolves around a major character death. Deals pretty inexplicitly with pregnancy and childbirth.
Summary: Chani feels it, when Muad'dib dies. Midseries AU: the attempt to assassinate Paul with the stoneburner is successful.
Acknowledgements: Thanks immensely to [personal profile] idriya, who tells me things I don't want to hear even though I'm whiny and horrible to her after, and whom I hear spent a lot of time wrapped in a sheet to complete my beautiful complement art. Sadly, RL has delayed the actual complement posting - but the art will be embedded as soon as it is complete! ETA: Not embedded yet, but the art is up in a single post at my DW.

"Changed Fates" - fiction by [personal profile] sharpest_asp.

Fandom(s): Transformers
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Mikaela Banes and '07 movie ensemble
Wordcount | Rating: 10,378 | General Audiences (PG)
Content Notes/Warnings: Mentions of some violence, nothing graphic; injury to humans and robots alike, nothing graphic
Summary: This is the 2007 movie redone. Mikaela takes the front seat, and drives the action in this one.
Acknowledgements: I want to say thank you to the many people who encouraged me to write this, as well as to the legion of folks who stepped in to make it flow better. All of you made this project a fun thing for me to do.

As of 0830 PDT today, all final drafts sent to the ladiesbigbang email account have been verified & emails have been sent to those creators. We do have a few people with extensions on turning in their final projects yet. As soon as those last few final drafts are turned in and verified, we'll be making and posting up the posting schedule.

Right now, we do still have 9 creators who haven't gotten any kind of complement. We'd really like to see all of these people get a complement of some sort. Below the cut are all 9 projects, with links to their threads on the ladiesbigbangpinchhitting googlegroup. If you are a member of that group and want to take one of these projects, comment there. Otherwise, comment here and we'll get you in touch with that creator.

9 creators still in search of a complement... )

[[Creator Sign-Up Form]]

Please note:
  • Sign-ups will be open through June 30. Remember, you may participate even if you do not sign up (more details in our rules); sign-ups are for folks who want to make use of support structure and/or appreciate the accountability of sign-ups.
  • You are not required to be matched with a beta or cheerleader.
  • You are not required to choose a fandom; you are required to choose a medium/category if you'd like to be matched with a beta/cheerleader.
  • If you wish to create original content, you must indicate it in your sign-up, particularly if you're interested in being matched with a beta or cheerleader.
  • If you are a multicategory participant, please list your percentages under the "category" section.
  • For co-creating teams: only one person needs to submit the initial sign-up, but every other person participating in the co-creation must also comment to it confirming their participation.
  • Other links that may be of interest: prompts for creators and author permission for audioficcers.

Be sure that you have read the Rules & Guidelines for Creators before signing up; a lot has changed this year, including the addition of TEN new primary categories of creation. Also recommended: double checking the new finalized minimums on the community profile.

Keep in mind that if you are requesting to be matched up with a cheerleader or a beta that we cannot guarantee any kind of matching on fandom whatsoever. Your cheerleader or beta will be aware that they may not know your fandom and they'll be signing up to provide general cheerleading/betaing services.

Also, feel free to cheer each other on in the comments! Just keep in mind that sign-ups will be screened after the sign-up period ends.

Although it was looking like this wasn't going to happen for awhile, Ladies' Big Bang is in fact back for a 2011 round!

Timeline and can be found on profile.

We are currently looking for: anyone interested in co-moderating or volunteering. Any type of assistance would be greatly appreciated, and we could probably specifically use some help in the following areas: graphics, promotions, and brainstorming about how to increase the intersectionality of this challenge. If there are any other communities that would like to run affiliated/overlapping/concurrent challenges, we'd be very interested in that.

We're continually aiming to expand the range of media included in this challenge, so we've added five new creation categories:
3D Art
Resource List [for example, the types of lists found at [ profile] newbieguide]

ETA 6/6 new categories added:
Sequential Art

There are minimums up for these categories on our profile. There will be sections in the Rules & Guidelines soon explaining more about these categories, so we request that you hold off on asking clarifying questions about these new categories until they're re-posted, if you can. The Rules & Guidelines are currently under major revision (for example, the entirety of the theme guideline is gone and there are less rules around minimum sizes and splitting up requirements) but will be re-posted before sign-ups.

We are open to adding other categories for creation, but if you'd like to suggest a category please be prepared to suggest minimums/basic rules around said category as well. There are many more categories that were under consideration but that we didn't add because we couldn't come up with a satisfactory framework for minimums/rules.

If you have any suggestions about changes to existing minimums/rules/etc., this would be a great time to let us know since we're in the midst of refining things. You're welcome to comment either here or e-mail us at ladiesbigbang[at]

We're very excited to be back and hope we'll see some of you at sign-ups :)

ETA: Sign-ups now open.
