H/D Big Bang is a thing!  

Something BIG is coming!


harrydracobang was announced today and I'm so friggin' excited to finally be able to talk about it! :D

YAS! Harry/Draco 2018 is a thing! :D

But I guess I should actually talk a bit about instead of going into 100% flail mod before? :D

Harry/Draco Big Bang is a community encouraging the creation of fanfics 50K+ and fabulous art. You write your story and collab with an artist that will create art for your fic and together you'll make a gorgeous final piece of fic and art. :D

You can learn more about the process here.

It's very, very early yet, because sign ups open Jan 1st. BUT! It's never too early to think about it! I bet many of you amazing writers have that one story you've been meaning to write for a long while. This is the perfect chance! Not only you'll have the opportunity to have an artist illustrating your but being part of Harry/Draco fun will be so much fun. We'll have activities (seriously, watch the community for future announcements!), chat sessions, sprints and so much more.

There will be lots of things to do for watchers, too. You can be a cheerleader, an alpha reader and help an author or an artist through the creation of their pieces, beta read and generally offer support and be part of Harry/Draco Bang 2018. :)

Please watch the community: harrydracobang and our Tumblr: @harrydracobang for more updates. We, as in gracerene, writcraft & myself are super excited and like, yeah! COME ON! HARRY/DRACO BANG! YAS! \o/

OMFG, Capitu, I honestly didn't mean to click join on Ao3, it's just my mouse missclicks at times, look, just ignore me, okay? D:

while I really really want to, I remember how I struggled with the last one in 2015 where we had 4 more months for the 50k. At first I was all happy and yes lets do this, but the fact that we have only 5 months for the first draft, makes me wonder if I want to do this.

Well. People work at different schedules. Sometimes having longer time makes people procrastinate more, a tighter schedule can be beneficial for a lot of people. :)

Well I never said that I was the measure for all of this, I just said that it dampens my confidence immensely to do it. That's all.

I know you didn't! ❤️ I hope you think about it, sign ups are a long time to come. I know big bangs are super challenging but I think, or hope, as I'm not a writer myself, doing it in a community with a lot of support could make it easier and fun. :)

See that is the thing, I was all for it. But the timeframe alone stresses me so much, that I won't sign up. Setting myself up for failure is not helping me develop as a writer. But I am sure there will be a lot of people happy to sign up.

Aww. Sorry about that. <3

And yeh, I hope so too! :D

It's going to be awesome! :)

OMG omg omg, this looks amazing, you guys!!!

*giant tackles hugs*

(also I've missed you, hope you're well <3 <3)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 1st, 2017 05:44 pm (UTC)
RIGHT???? I hope people give it a chance. :))

I've missed you too! You know in the state I've been, sorry for sort of disappearing lately. I keep hoping things will settle but it's been crazy, and next week I'm travelling (so things are crazy now getting all ready for that) but maybe coming back from that will make a difference, who the devil knows. I want a holiday but from life as a whole. Like, hole myself in my home and see no one for a fortnight. ^^ me, my fics and chocolate.

omg, I'm so sorry you've been feeling like this. Like, heatwrenchingly sad <3 I know you mentioned having so much going on and I wish there was something I could to help (is there? at all?). I think I could try and send chocolate but it would take roughly 659 million years to arrive (have we got that long? lol).

*giant endless hugs, from the bottom of my heart*
welcome to villa cariño!: Harry [thank you <3]capitu on September 4th, 2017 08:24 pm (UTC)
I can totally have chocolate and pretend you sent it! it's the intention that matters!!!! *wolfs down chocolate like nobody's business* That's the stuff...

*mega hugs*
