Note: we are going to temporarily halt these support posts for a few weeks. However, they will be back soon! Stay tuned!

Welcome back to our newest Support & Chatter post this Captain America/Iron Man Big Bang round. All information about the Big Bang 2017 can be found here.

Remember that we do not have an official sign-up period and for that reason do not do official and mandatory check-ins. As long as you get in a draft before September 27th you’re signed-up for this Big Bang and after that there is no backing out. But that date is still a long way off and working away all alone and in silence can be frustrating. We all know. We've all been there. So, to keep us all excited and motivated we’re again starting up our informal weekly "Support and Chatter" posts.

Some people here are longfic writers, some people here might attempt their first longer story. Don't be afraid. Talk to each other, help each other out and share tips and ideas. We're all excited to see what comes of it in the end!

This is open to absolutely everyone who makes this challenge great -- writers, artists, beta readers, cheerleaders, and readers! Come in, make friends and talk to each other. We want everyone to have a good time and be motivated!

We're over a month in now, and even if people aren't actively working on BB yet, we're glad to see many are interested in joining. But first, your update on what's happening in the comm!

The new season of Avengers Assemble airs on June 17th, and to celebrate, we're going to host a countdown! Sign-ups end tomorrow, plus there's no length requirement, so please consider joining if you love AA Steve/Tony!

The Superhusbands Aluminum Anniversary Anthology deadline is also drawing closer, with a week until the deadline for creator sign-ups! But maybe you're still working on your Reverse Big Bang story before you can even start thinking about all these other events? Also keep in mind that creator sign-ups for our very own Captain America/Iron Man Tiny Reverse Bang are also in progress. We are taking art now, but writing prompts will go up in less than a month. Let yourself be inspired.

If you are looking for ideas look at our prompt post Please feel free to discuss any of your projects or share your excitement for fandom happenings here!

(As per community setting anonymous commenting as allowed. People who do not have an LJ account can participate that way. We mean it: EVERYONE is welcome.)

We're a month in now, and even if people aren't actively working on BB yet, we're glad to see many are interested in joining, considering how many mentions there were fo it in the Stony Trumps Hate charity auction! Speaking of Stony Trumps Hate, bidding ends in...a bit over 17 hours from now! Definitely keep an eye out for that, and we're really proud of our fandom for coming together to take a stand and do some good in the world!

Other than STH, the Superhusbands Aluminum Anniversary Anthology deadline is also drawing closer, with less than two weeks until the deadline for creator sign-ups! But maybe you're still working on your Reverse Big Bang story before you can even start thinking about all these other events? Also keep in mind that creator sign-ups for our very own Captain America/Iron Man Tiny Reverse Bang are also in progress. We are taking art now, but writing prompts will go up in less than a month. Let yourself be inspired.

Wait, we're not done yet! On other parts of LJ, [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang has also started up sign-ups! Their minimum is 10k words, so for those Steve/Tony stories you can't quite get into our cap-ironman BB, here's the place to submit! Sign-ups for Marvel BB will close on Jun 1st for authors (just a few more days!) and September 2nd for writers.

We're three weeks in and even if people aren't actively working on BB yet, we're glad to see many are interested in joining, considering how many mentions there were fo it in the Stony Trumps Hate charity auction! Speaking of Stony Trumps Hate, all the creator pages have gone up and they're looking amazing! Bidding starts tomorrow, so for now, take a look at who's on offer and get your wallets and trigger fingers ready for a week of bidding! Other than STH, the Superhusbands Aluminum Anniversary Anthology deadline is also drawing closer, with less than 3 weeks until the deadline for creator sign-ups! But maybe you're still working on your Reverse Big Bang story before you can even start thinking about all these other events?

Alright everyone! You've had a week to think about it. Welcome again to our newest Support & Chatter post this Captain America/Iron Man Big Bang round. All information about the Big Bang 2017 can be found here.

It’s only the second week and we expect that most people are still browsing for ideas, are dusting off WIPs. Or are you still working on the Reverse Big Bang story before you even have time to think about this? Also keep in mind that creator sign-ups for Stony Trumps Hate end today and it’s still possible to come up with ideas for theSuperhusbands Aluminum Anniversary Anthology. And our very own Captain America/Iron Man Tiny Reverse Bang is also starting. We are taking art now, but writing prompts will go up in less than a month. Let yourself be inspired.

On the comm, we also have the Tiny Reverse Bang coming up this summer (details to be announced soon!)

Maybe you’ve gotten your head start and are already working on the BB? Or you’re impatiently waiting to art or read? Or are you looking for ideas? Please feel free to discuss any of your projects or share your excitement for fandom happenings here!

The Reverse Bang is posting and we’re all excited for the amazing works that still have to go up and about all the things we already got to look at! We hope everyone is having a good time with their own works, with feedback and with reading along.

This also means it is time to kick off another of our popular annual events! Whether you’ve participated before, or if you’re planning to join for the first time: Welcome to the Cap/IronMan Big Bang 2017!



This is where everything begins for the [livejournal.com profile] cap_ironman Captain America/Iron Man Big Bang 2017!

The Schedule:



Now - September 27th:: Writers write and weekly “Support and Chatter” go up
September 27th: Drafts and summaries are due/writer sign-ups close
September 28th: Summaries are publicly posted
September 30th: Artists claim stories by summaries
October: Artists art, writers put finishing touches on their fics
October 28th: Teams pick posting date in November
November: Fics and art begin posting

Rules and the basics:



Thanks to our great community of excited writers and especially artists we are one of the few Big Bangs that does not have early sign-ups. To enter the 2017 Big Bang, you must submit a draft prior to sign-ups closing on Sept 27th. Statements of intent to participate are not needed - just show up by Sept 27th with your draft and you are signed up as a writer!

To participate in the 2017 Big Bang as an artist, all you need to do is claim a summary on September 28th. No prior sign-up is required.

Fics should be complete by the beginning of November and posting ready by your team’s posting date. The minimum wordcount for this Big Bang is 25k. Submitted drafts must be mostly complete by the sign up date, including an outlined ending, so that your artist has a clear idea after claiming of where you’re taking the story in the next few weeks. When you send in a draft we need you to be sure that you will be able to finish and post your story at a posting date in November, because from this point on you are collaborating with someone and penalties for dropping out at this stage might include a temporary ban for collaborating event on this community. As a rough guideline you should have at least 80% of your drafted story written by then, which would be at least roughly 20k of the required 25k wordcount, and we will not accept drafts that are not at least 20k. The important thing is that you feel absolutely confident you can finish the story in time and post it in November.

Instructions for sending in your draft will be put up in September.

This challenge is run by the [livejournal.com profile] cap_ironman community and this is a Steve/Tony fest, so we’re looking for fics with a focus on the relationship between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark (in any setting or continuity you can think of). In gen fics, secondary pairings should be kept to the background and the focus should be clearly on Steve and Tony and their interactions. If there is romance then the focus should be on the Steve/Tony relationship. If other pairings are included, they should be in the background. We do not allow poly relationships in the main pairing: a fic focused on Steve/Tony/Other Character does not fill the requirements of the challenge this year. The only exception here are any variations of multiple multiverse or time-travel Steves/Tonys, for example, Steve/Tony/Tony, Steve/Tony/Steve (or more!). Other non-Steve/Tony pairings, past/prior/casual relationships, poly relationships including other characters can all feature in the background or during the set-up of the story, but again the focus of the story’s main plot should be on the Steve/Tony content and the Steve/Tony pairing/pre-slash/gen relationship should be the sole “endgame” in some way.

What does "endgame" mean? Does it mean they have to be together at the end? Not exactly. This means for example the point of your story should be to write about Steve/Tony and not to write 20k of breakup to set them up with other people as their true loves. For example: a story that ends with character death ending where one of them is left to pine and grief for his one true love and regret missed chances, a love triangle where Steve and Tony finally realize they are the only ones for each other and the romantic trouble gets resolved as Steve/Tony, or stories that deal with them breaking up because incursions or them never getting together because of fighting each other over issues while we know they love each other and it causes all the angst are all fine for this challenge.

This challenge is for new stories. Using a fic you’ve already started is fine, so long as no part of it has been published before anywhere else. Fics that have been previously posted -- either entirely or in parts as a WIP -- do not qualify for this fest.

Sequels that can be read on their own are allowed and welcome.

We don’t allow pre-formed teams, and we expect all participants to be open to working with new people. We also can’t guarantee that a particular author and artist be paired together as there will be a random element to the claiming process.

To participate, authors will be required to have an Ao3 account and will have the responsibility of posting their own fics to our Ao3 collection. If you don’t have an account, you can request one here. If for any reason you do not receive an invitation through the queue and it’s already close to your posting date, please contact us and we will try and provide you with an invite code.

Detailed posting instructions will follow closer to the deadline. Guidelines for the accompanying fanworks will be available in the posts relating to artist sign-ups.

Please watch the [livejournal.com profile] c_im_bigbang comm for additional information. There we will also provide you with informal “Talk posts” where writers and artists can talk about their ideas, their progress, and potential beta readers or interested by-standers can come in and provide moral support. It is a long writing period from now until November, and the key is to keep focused and motivated. Many of us will also hang out in the official comm IRC chat and you can come in at any time to talk about your writing and, when it’s time, also your art creating woes.

The Sign--ups:



Any writer who submits a draft prior to Sept 27th will be officially signed up for the fest. Any artist who claims a draft in the September 30th claims post is likewise signed up for the Big Bang. There is no penalty-free dropping out after.

If you don’t have an idea for a story to work on yet, you might want to check out our prompt post and browse the ideas that people would like to see in fic.

We are not asking you to state your intention to participate this year, but we’ll hang around the “Support and Chatter” posts and hope that many of you are just as excited as we are to get started.

We also want to take the time to introduce our affiliate Big Bang challenge [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang.


[livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang


Marvel Bang has been running successfully for a couple of years. It is open to all stories set in a canon of the greater Marvel universe or focused on Marvel characters and pairings. The minimum word count is 10k.

So if you have an idea for a story that does not fit our BB, don’t think the world doesn’t want your story! If you feel unsure whether your draft will meet the required word count, consider signing up for this challenge! There is a place for stories of all shapes and sizes in fandom!

Marvel Bang Dates have been published already, so check them out. The sign-ups start on May 14.

If you have any questions, you can reach us by commenting on this post, emailing us at cap.im.events@gmail.com or or poking us in chat when we’re around.

Posting begins on Sunday, April 30th. We can't wait!

Your art or fic should be finished and ready to post by your chosen posting date.

Each participating author and artist will upload their own fic/artwork individually. Authors, please remember to link the art that inspired you, artists - please include the link to the fic written for you in your artpost. This is a collab event. The important part is to work together and inspire each other. Please acknowledge that at the time of posting and thank your teammate :)

The fics should be posted on AO3 or LJ/DW in an unlocked post (do not use tumblr as your primary fic hosting site).

Art should be posted on a site allowing anyone to view it without registration (tumblr, unlocked LJ/DW posts, AO3, imgur). If you post on tumblr, please include the direct link to the image as well as the original post link so that it's accessible even if you change your username. You can get the direct link by right-clicking on the image and choosing the "copy image location" option in Firefox or "copy image address" in Google Chrome. Also, if you're an artist, please prepare your art's thumbnail (to include in the masterpost). It can be part of the art or just the art scaled down (keep it under 600x400px). Please also keep the thumbnails safe for work.

If you're posting to AO3, there is a Captain America/Iron Man Reverse Bang 2017 collection open. You can add your RBB work there (either by choosing "Post to Collection" from the collection page or by putting "cap_ironman_2017_RBB" in the "Post to Collections/Challenges" field if you post normally).

If you need an AO3 account, you can request an invitation here. If you cannot get it in time before your posting date, please let the mods know and we'll try to help.

On your chosen posting day, after everyone has posted their respective works, only one member from your team should make a masterpost to the main Cap-Iron Man comm using the following form. If you don't have an LJ account, please contact us at cap.im.events@gmail.com with all the links and information about your RBB work, and we'll make the masterpost for you.

When creating your masterpost, use this form. If there's more than one art file, add links as necessary.



Please tag your masterposts appropriately in the main comm: challenge: reverse bang, x: artist's name, x: author's name and any applicable genre/universe/rating tags. If any creator doesn't have their own tag, please let us now and we'll fix it.

We will be reblogging all the artposts for the challenge posted to tumblr, as long as they're safe for work and include the link to the accompanying fic. Please tag your post with #cap im rbb within the first five tags to make it easier for us to see it.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know in the comments on this post or at cap.im.events@gmail.com!

You can sign up here.

Claims can be chosen via Doodle (a scheduling poll website) on a first-come-first-served basis. Each date is available for two posting teams, based on the
Artist’s Team Name (remember to only choose one date for each team). The dates available will be April 30th - May 31st. When you claim, enter your team name (example: Team Valor), then choose your preferred date. (Doodle will sometimes hide some of the dates so make sure you click the “show all 32 options” button if you can only see the first few days.)



IMPORTANT: Your posting team is determined by the Artist’s Team Name. Any team member can claim a date for posting, but each team will only be allowed to claim once. Please let us know if you have any questions (comment here, ask on tumblr, or email us at cap.im.events@gmail.com).

IF YOU NEED AN EXTENSION: If you are unable to claim a posting date that works for your schedule, or if you know that you will need some extra time to finish your work for the challenge, please let us know ASAP so that we can discuss extension possibilities. For a creator to receive an extension we will need to receive a draft of the work and an estimate about how much remains to be finished. If a team consists of an artist and two authors and only one author needs an extension, that author can get an individual extension. If an artist needs an extension, we would ask that authors wait until that extension date to post. Extensions will be available throughout May and into June. All works completed and posted before June 15th will be included in the official round-up post. If a creator fails to post a finished work by June 15th their new deadline will become the Big Bang Draft Submission date. If they do not complete their work by that date they will not be eligible to participate in the Big Bang, or future collaboration-based Cap-Iron Man challenges, until either the work (or equivalent gift-work) is completed or a full calendar year has passed.

We’re looking forward to seeing the results of all your hard work these last few months!

Reverse Bang Date Claims are coming on Saturday, April 22nd at 9:00AM EDT (what time is that for me?).

Claims will be chosen via Doodle (a scheduling poll website) on a first-come-first-served basis. Each date will be available for two posting teams, and we will provide the link in an lj post on the event community page when claims go live. The dates available will be April 30th - May 31st. When you claim, enter your team name (example: Team Valor), then choose your preferred date. (Doodle will sometimes hide some of the dates so make sure you click the “show all 32 options” button if you can only see the first few days.)



Please coordinate between yourselves so that only one person of each artist/writer team claims a date. Both the team artist and the team writer have to post together on the chosen day.

IF YOU NEED AN EXTENSION: If you are unable to claim a posting date that works for your schedule, or if you know that you will need some extra time to finish your work for the challenge, please let us know ASAP so that we can discuss extension possibilities. For a creator to receive an extension we will need to receive a draft of the work and an estimate about how much remains to be finished. Extensions will be available throughout May and into June.

Claims are now closed. Please look forward to RBB postings in May!


Only the still unclaimed artworks in this post are open for claiming at this point.



CLAIMS ARE STILL OPEN FOR AUTHORS!!! We have 15 gorgeous artworks left to be claimed. We've made it easier for you by making this post, which only has the unclaimed entries to pick from.



As of now, everyone who has claimed should have received their team up email - please contact us if you haven't!



Guidelines for writers:


1. You will be writing a companion fic to accompany your assigned artist's art.


2. Reverse Bang fics must be 5k words minimum.


3. Fics must be newly created for the artwork, and cannot be posted anywhere else or be part of a work in progress.


4. You may not publicly post Reverse Bang fics on any site before the reveals in May.


5. Fics must be complete at the time of posting. The goal of the challenge is for each team to produce a complete fic and a finished piece of art.



Authors and Artists alike: PLEASE keep in contact with your partner. This is a collaborative effort between the two of you, and both the fic and the art should reflect that.



Please be aware that by signing up now you are fully committing to the challenge. Failing to complete it may lead to a ban. If one member of a team fails to complete the challenge by their chosen deadline in May, that participant may be banned from future Cap-Iron Man events until either they complete the original challenge or one calendar year has passed, whichever comes first. By claiming or submitting art, you are agreeing to these terms. If a situation arises where you think you will need an extension, or will be unable to meet your commitments to the challenge, be sure to inform the event mods ASAP so we can talk about it and figure out the best solution.



If the claim time does not work for you, you can ask a friend claim for you--just pass along your username/email and your selections. If you can't find anyone else to claim for you, email us at cap.im.events@gmail.com and we'll ask someone to help!



Additionally, if the first round of claims goes quickly, we may open up a second round.



Please follow the claiming instructions below to claim your piece. Make sure you choose ONLY art that you want to write for.



Claiming Instructions


1.If you have not already done so, please read over the Rules and Guidelines.


2. Once the claims are open, assignments will be given on a first come, first served basis.

Claims are now closed. Please look forward to RBB postings in May!



This is the PREVIEW for the claims post of the Reverse Bang. There are 48 (FORTY EIGHT!) art drafts to choose from (fantastic job everyone!), some of which have multiple pieces to go with the same story.



Authors should take the next couple days to consider which pieces you would be interested in writing for. Compile your wish lists! We recommend that you choose at least three artworks in case your first choice gets taken.



ROUND 1 OF ART CLAIMS will open on Saturday, February 18th at 11:00 PM CET (what time is that for me?)



The art previews are in the next part of the post. Please note that some of them might be NOT SAFE FOR WORK and view at your own discretion.

Happy New Year, everyone :)

It’s January 1st, so I can happily declare that the Cap-Iron Man 2017 Reverse Bang is now open for art submissions!

We’re very excited to see what everyone comes up with this year, and are happy to answer any questions you might have (please check out the rules and schedule post here). If you have any questions, drop us an ask on tumblr, a comment on LJ, or join us in the #cap-im irc chat (how to connect to chat). One or more of us should be around for most of tonight and tomorrow to answer questions, cheerlead or help with initial brainstorming.

When you have your submission ready, please email a .jpeg or .png file to cap.im.events@gmail.com. Art does not need to be finished, but characters should be recognizable without labels. Submission emails should include a universe label or be labeled “ambiguous”. If there are specific story elements you do NOT wish to see in your partnered fic (major squicks and triggers) please tell the mods in your submission email so that we can include that information up front. Lastly, don’t forget to give us a username so we know who you are!

Note about the ambiguous label: only use it if you’re sure you’re okay with getting a fic written in any Marvel Universe: MCU, 616, Noir, EMH, etc. Otherwise please just specify the universes you’re okay with the story being set in

Finally, if you need some ideas to get you going, last year’s mods posted some great inspiration posts over on our tumblr, so check them out!

Have fun everyone :D

It’s time for the 2017 Cap-Iron Man Reverse Bang! If you haven’t participated before, the Reverse Bang is an annual cap-ironman event where artists submit art to be claimed by authors for fics (the opposite of the Big Bang, where authors create fics, which artists then claim and produce art for). This year the event will officially run from January through May 2017.

Here are some important dates to remember:

Earliest Art Submission Acceptance: Sunday, January 1st, 2017

Art Submission Deadline: Wednesday, February 15th, 11:59pm PST (what time is it for me?)

(art will be available for viewing a minimum of 24 hours before claims begin)

Author Claims: Saturday, February 18th (exact hour TBA)

(to take place on livejournal, first-come first-served, initially 1 claim per author)

Posting Date Claims: Saturday, April 22nd

(via Doodle, limit of 2 teams per posting date, first-come first-served)

Posting Begins: Sunday, April 30th

This year’s mods are [livejournal.com profile] laireshi, viennasunrise, [livejournal.com profile] magicasen, and Lore. We’re all very excited to get started. Keep an eye out for motivation and check-in chats in the next few weeks. Questions? See the rules below or send us an email at cap.im.events@gmail.com.

Basic Rules and Guidelines:

1. Art and fic must focus on Steve and Tony in some way! The end goal does not have to be a romantic one, but Steve and Tony and their relationship (shippy or gen) should be central to any work produced.

2. All participating art must be submitted to cap.im.events@gmail.com by the art deadline. Art does not need to be finished, but characters should be recognizable without labels. It should include a universe label or be labeled “ambiguous”. If there are specific story elements you do NOT want to see in your partnered fic (major squicks and triggers) please tell the mods in your submission email so that we can include that information up front. Note about the ambiguous label: only use it if you're sure you're okay with getting a fic written in any Marvel Universe: MCU, 616, Noir, EMH, etc. Otherwise please just specify the universes you're okay with the story being set in.

3. Art should be original work and should not have been previously posted anywhere. Similarly, as this is a collaborative event, art created for this event should not be posted for commercial sale until six months after the event has ended.

4. Artists should keep their identities as secret as possible from the larger community. Art posted for claims will not include artist names and should remain anonymous to all but the paired author(s).

5. Traditional and digital art are both acceptable for art submissions. Art entries may include more than one piece of art, but the art must all fit together into the same story.

6. Manips and fanmixes/fanmix covers will not be accepted for art submissions.

7. Each creator may submit a total of two distinct works to the event (in any combination of art and fic).

8. Fic written for this event must exceed 5,000 words in length.

Authors and artists who have failed to complete a previous challenge will not be allowed to participate in this event unless a full year has passed, they complete the original challenge or they demonstrate equivalent ability. If you have questions or concerns about banning in our events, please email the general mods at cap.im.mod@gmail.com.

Big Bang posting has begun! It's time to go over instructions for how the posting will work.

Have your completed fic and art formatted and ready to post by your selected posting date.

Each participating writer and artist will upload their own fic/art individually. For long term accessibility reasons we require the finished fic be hosted on AO3 (probably the most convenient) or LJ/DW. Do not use tumblr as your primary fic hosting site. For art, we prefer one of the usual image hosting sites (deviantart, flickr, photobucket, private server, etc) but tumblr is allowed if a direct link to the image file is provided in the community masterpost as well.

If you need to make an AO3 account, please request an invite here and keep in mind that it might take a few days for you to get it and be able to create the account. If you run into trouble, contact us, asap! Be sure to add your works to the 2016 Captain America/Iron Man Big Bang collection if you are using AO3.

On your chosen posting day, ONE member from your team is required to make a masterpost to the main comm here on livjournal using the following form:



Please tag your masterpost with the following: challenge: big bang, fanart, fanfic, genre, rating, universe and all team members' usernames. Usernames are in the format x: USERNAMEHERE. If someone on your team doesn't have a tag, please make a note of it in the text of your masterpost.

In case that none of your team members have a Livejournal account, you can either very easily set one up and make your master post OR you can contact the Big Bang mod team before your posting date, send them the required information and one of us will make the post on your behalf using the [livejournal.com profile] cap_ironman_fe account.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know!

You can claim your posting date HERE. Please note that in order to view all the dates you’ll have to click on the button that says View All Options. A few things to remember about claiming dates. 

1. Please claim using your team name (if you've forgotten your team name, go check your email). Only one team member needs to claim per team so please get in touch with each other and claim a date. In case your fic has been claimed by more than one artist please make sure to have one masterpost up with links to both artists works.

2. There will be a maximum of two claims allowed per date.

3. Unless you've determined otherwise with one of the mods, every team needs to claim one of these dates, so make sure you've coordinated with your partner!

4. If you have any other questions, please contact a mod or comment on this post.

5. Please make sure to post on your assigned date! We understand that things can happen that are out of your control, but your chosen date is it. Contact us if any unforeseen problems come up and don’t just vanish!

If you have any questions between now and then don’t hesitate to contact us!
