Welcome to the Dystopia Big Bang. dystopiabigbang
is a multi-fandom Big Bang challenge for dystopia fanfics. The objective of this challenge is to take your characters and put them in a dystopian universe or create an original one. The minimum word count for this challenge is 20,000 words.
To quote Wikipedia, "A dystopia
is the idea of a society in a repressive and controlled state, often under the guise of being utopian. Dystopian societies feature different kinds of repressive social control systems, various forms of active and passive coercion. Ideas and works about dystopian societies often explore the concept of humans abusing technology and humans individually and collectively coping, or not being able to properly cope with technology that has progressed far more rapidly than humanity's spiritual evolution. Dystopian societies are often imagined as police states, with unlimited power over the citizens."What fandoms are allowed for dystopiabigbang?
There is a great many number of existing fandoms that are set in dystopian societies. These include works of literature
, and television or games
. You may choose to set your big bang fic in any one of these fandoms, or you can write original fic and create a dystopian universe of your own. You may also write a fusion or crossover, as long as the resulting story takes place in the dystopian universe. RPF set in an existing dystopian fandom or one that you create is also allowed. What pairings are allowed for dystopiabigbang?
All pairings are welcome. Gen, het, slash, and femslash are all encouraged and welcome here. As are threesome and poly pairings. RPF and crossover pairings are all more than welcome as well.Do I have to work with an artist and/or a beta for this challenge?
Yes. Big Bang challenges are traditionally about working in a collaborative environment. You must communicate with your assigned author or artist. I will be contacting the pairs after author/artist matching takes place to make sure the lines of communication are open. You also must
have your fic looked over by a beta reader. A post for those who wish to volunteer to be beta readers will go up at a later time. I have a question!
