Info for Artist Recruitment
Farscape: Sikozu = Todd?
katiemariie
Hey, gang. With the rough draft deadline looming and artist claims going live shortly thereafter, I'd like to ramp up (pun intended) artist recruitment. With multifandom big bangs, recruiting artists at the outset can be a little difficult because there's no guarantee that a fandom they are in will be featured. But now that our lovely authors should know what they're writing, recruitment should be easier.

Authors, please fill out this form with information about your fics for this challenge, so I can start doing more targeted, fandom-specific advertising for artists. Thanks!

General
What is a big bang challenge?

A big bang challenge is a type of fic challenge where writers long fic (in this case, at least 10k words) that is then claimed by artists who create art, fanmixes, fanvids, and meta based on that fic.

What types of stories are allowed in this challenge?
Stories that feature prominently characters with canonical (or arguably canonical) disabilities and the experience of being disabled. That second part can mean any number of things. For example, falling in love while disabled, fighting crime while disabled, leading a carnival during the Great Depression while disabled... What's it like to do that kinda stuff when society isn't built for people with disabilities?

What types of art are allowed for this challenge?
Artists can create visual art (drawings, paintings, graphic art, etc.), fanmixes, fanvids, and meta.
