Fullmetal Alchemist Big Bang

Fan fics, fan art, fan love!

Though the changes are mostly cosmetic, there are slight changes to the actual tules as well. I have been approached by several people who were disappointed with some of the principles we've set up, and I would like to clear things up. So...

Let's talk about sequels, crossovers, AUs, and our anti-hate policy...

Exciting news!
This round (and possibly all future rounds depending on our success), we will be partnering with the tumblr blog fmabigbang!  We will be teaming up to post across both websites to increase readership and participation, and ultimately celebrate our love for writing and creating art for the Fullmetal Alchemist universe.

So what does that mean for our participants here on LJ?
Basically, you'll do what you've done in the past- check here (or on tumblr) for schedules, updates, anything pertaining to what's going on.  When it comes time to post your works, you'll post either the entire fic here (formatted and with art inside and in the right spots) or AO3 or whatever host site you choose, then I will submit that post to the tumblr side of things where it will be posted for all of tumblr to see and enjoy.  Once that blog post has been made, I will link it up to your LJ post here, so you can keep track of how many likes and reblogs you're getting on tumblr, without actually having to have a tumblr account.  For those of you who don't have a tumblr and have no plans of getting one, the number of notes on a post is how many people are liking and sharing your story, kind of like how facebook keeps track of shares and likes.

Even though this is going to be across both LJ and tumblr, you do not need to have a tumblr account.
When all participants have posted, I will gather all the links up and make a master post, that way we can all see everyone's hard work.  You won't have to go to tumblr at all if you don't want to.  The link to your story's tumblr post is only so you can see how far your tale is going over there.

There will be some changes to the rules. I'm not anticipating anything too major.  As of right now there are only two set in stone: NO CROSSOVERS, CHARACTERS MUST BE OVER AGE 15 FOR SEXY TIMES.

All that being said, let me get you a schedule of upcoming dates.

April 1, 2016- AUTHOR and ARTIST sign ups OPEN

As always, some dates can be extended but others CANNOT. As we always have more authors than artists, the author sign ups WILL BE CLOSED on April 30th, NO EXCEPTIONS.  Rough drafts received after May 26 may not get an artist.  It's important to follow the timeline so everyone can have a great experience.


Get those creative juices flowing and we'll keep you updated along the way!

Stay tuned, we've got some big things in the works hopefully.  In the meantime, start getting your plot bunnies in order because we're gonna hit the ground running!

Raven promises to do what he can to get Roy apprenticed to his personal magician, Berthold Hawkeye. While at first, it appears that Master Hawkeye doesn't care much for Roy, that all changes once he proves his intentions by dedicating himself to his studies and mastering the art of sorcery. When Master Kimblee, the King's personal magician and overseer of the Journeyman level sorcerers, comes to collect any philosopher's stones Master Hawkeye may have, Roy is insulted by his behavior and casts a spell on him.
