Hey everybody, just checking in.  Don't know about the rest of you but I'm chomping at the bit for the Korra finale to be uploaded to nick.com.  Regarding the mini-bang I've had a few questions lately so just to recap the general idea please remember the following;

-All submissions of any kind, fanfics, fanart/videos etc are not only allowed but welcomed with open arms.
-Fanfics should ideally be at a minimum of 1,000 words, but no upper limit.
-Appropriate ratings for content and warnings (ships supported, character death or squick factors) are needed.
-If needed please include spoiler warnings...Seriously we get enough spoilers from the internet to begin with.

Here's the timeline again for anyone who needs it:
May 15 to May 31: Confirm sign-up for authors and artists.
June 1: Mini-Bang begins.

June 30: All fics and art due. (I'll do a post for how to submit so don't worry)
July 1 onward: Posting submissions.

Hey everyone,

Sorry this is delayed, had some connection issues on my end.  The timeline mentioned in the last post, and copied below, is still the one we're going with.  At this point, don't worry about signing up, just work on your fics and/or art and we'll collect them by the end of the month.

Just to repeat the rules for clarification:

Minimum 1,000 words but no maximum limit.
Normal warnings of rating/content should be used in the final drafts and appropriate ratings for art.
Submissions can be for Avatar, Korra or anything in-between, just make note of spoilers in case someone hasn't been able to keep up on Korra.

And here's the timeline again:

May 15 to May 31: Confirm sign-up for authors and artists.
June 1: Mini-Bang begins.
June 30: All fics and art due.
July 1 onward: Posting submissions.

From the comments on the past few posts there is definetly more than enough interest in running a mini-bang.  Here's what I'm thinking of for a timeline for it.

May 15 to May 31: Confirm sign-up for authors and artists.
June 1: Mini-Bang begins.
June 30: All fics and art due.
July 1 onward: Posting submissions.

Since the mini-bang is only a month long I didn't see the need to have everyone submit rough drafts.  If anyone thinks rough drafts should still be in the timeline let me know in the comments.

Other things to keep in mind for the fics themselves;

Minimum 1,000 words but no maximum limit.
Normal warnings of rating/content should be used in the final drafts.
Submissions can be for Avatar, Korra or anything in-between, just make note of spoilers in case someone hasn't been able to keep up on Korra.  Like if you somehow learned Amon's identity (I have a guess or two myself.)

That's all I can think of for now, did I miss anything?

I hope everyone is enjoying Korra so far (I no longer have Nick, so I'll have to track the show down online).

More to the point, it sounds like the interest is more for a minibang, and of course artwork is an option as well.  Some things I should have clarified in my last post;

Submissions do not have to be Korra related, I just titled the post that because the premier was looming.  But that is of course an option.
Artwork will be part of it if people are interested.
While submissions for a mini-bang are shorter, minimum of 1,000 words instead of the usual 10k.  They should still be a complete story.  Something like a drabble or the one-sentence prompts isn't really the plan here, but those can be considered.  (Case by case maybe?)
The timeline will be about a month, with time beforehand to confirm signups and time after for submissions to get sorted and posted.

Everybody still interested?  If so then please comment with the month you'd like us to begin the mini-bang.

Hi everybody!

So here's what I was thinking.  With Korra right around the corner it feels like time for another quick round of fics.  More of a mini-bang than the full 10k.  But there are a few ways I can think to go about it so I wanted to get some feedback.

Here's my ideas:
-A mini-bang, fics being from 1K to 5K.
-A art prompt, we did this in the past and it went very well.
-A secret santa style where everyone submits prompts and they get assigned to another author.
-Any suggestions you have are also appreciated.

No timelines or specific logistics yet as these are just the starting ideas for what to do next with our great, great community.

P.S.  I owe you all an apology for the lack of posting since the last round ended.  My life got heavily in the way but that's no excuse, I can't promise you that it won't happen again, but I can promise that if I get too busy I'll at least let you all know and work with everyone to make sure things keep moving here.

EDIT:  I should have clarified that the whatever style we do this in, the fics do not have to be about Korra.  They can, as always, cover any Avatar material.
