ADMIN: Regarding Round 4

So we've gotten a couple of e-mails to the AUBB e-mail account about this, and I want to go ahead and make a post here for all of you guys so I don't have to answer a million more e-mails from my phone. As it stands now, we are not planning on doing a round 4 in the near future. If we do a round four (and right now that's a major if, because I am computer-less and looking to start working six days a week at my job that has an hour/hour and a half commute depending on what day I'm working, and E has ongoing health issues and school/work commitments) we will make an announcement here to let you guys know. If we do round 4 we're looking at starting it in the summer.

But I'm going to be honest with you guys: last round wasn't a whole lot of fun for us. We didn't get the heaps of abuse we got in round 2, but we had a lot of people drop off the face of the earth without any warning and without letting us know which made our jobs infinitely harder. I know I personally didn't get any art for either of my fics, and that made me sad, and I know it happened to a few other people. So while we know how much fun it is for you guys, right now we're seriously weighing real life commitments to whether we want to put in the time and effort for a round four.

Thank you to everyone who did exactly what they needed to do (thus making our jobs easier), and double thanks to everyone who has sent us such positive messages about your experiences here. Hopefully we can get things a bit more settled in our lives by the summer and we can do a round four, which I know a lot of you would love. Keep an eye out on the community for any updates.

2012 Masterlist

The 2012 Alternate Universe Big Bang has been a wonderful success, and we owe it to every single one of you who have joined us this year. Thank you so much—we couldn't have done it without you!

Behind the cut we have the titles and summaries for the forty-four stories posted as part of this challenge. Please have a look and check out some that you might have missed!

AUBB 2012 Masterlist )

Fic: Switch (Avatar: the Last Airbender)

Masterpost @ LJ
Masterpost @ DW


Switch: A quartet of Avatar: the Last Airbender AU fics, each exploring what could have happened if a character had been born in a nation other than their canon one. Each story is its own separate AU and stands completely on its own. I am posting the two stories written for [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang.

i. Switch: A Force That Gives Us Meaning (mini-bang)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] overlithe
Fandom: Avatar: the Last Airbender
Characters/Pairing(s): Katara, Sokka, Hakoda, Kya, Kanna; gen
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Fire Nation!Katara AU. At four, she found out she was the only firebender in her family. By ten, she was the most advanced bender in her whole class. Now that she is fourteen, she is sure that the coming school test is the last hurdle before she can finally serve her country and her Fire Lord. After all, hers is the greatest nation in the world… isn’t it?

An Introduction To The Woman - Doctor Who/Sherlock

Title: An Introduction To The Woman
Author: Ragna ([livejournal.com profile] scandalbaby)
Fandom: Doctor Who/Sherlock
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/Amelia Pond, Jack Harkness/Irene Adler, John Watson, Mycroft Holmes, Eleventh Doctor
Rating: PG
Warning: None
Word Count: 15,123
Summary: Mycroft insists on Sherlock working a case involving Irene Adler, the infamous dominatrix known as The Woman. Irene is full of surprises, but Sherlock has a few of his own, and at the end of the case there are changes in store for Irene and a surprising revelation for certain members of the Holmes family.
Authors Notes: Part of my "All Of Time And Space" series ([livejournal.com profile] aotas_fic). This fic is a re-write of the Sherlock episode "A Scandal In Belgravia," with a Wholock twist. Many thanks to my beta [livejournal.com profile] lotl101 for all the helpful corrections and my artist [livejournal.com profile] trickster88 for the wonderful art.

FIC:Unexpected Song (Glee) (mini-bang)

Many thanks to the mods, who let me post this now after missing my original date due to IRL issues.

Title: Unexpected Song

Author: TaleWeaver

Fandom: Glee

Pairing(s): Finn/Rachel, mentions of Puck/Quinn and Will/Emma

Rating: Mature for sexual activity (Finn/Rachel) and language. This was originally meant to be R-rated, but for some reason the right mood wouldn’t come. If I ever get around to writing the sequels I had ideas for, I may go back and re-write that scene

Warning: none.

Word Count: 8,524 minus bonus features. (Mini-bang)

Disclaimer: Glee belongs to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, and FOX studio. Title comes from the song by Andrew Lloyd Webber, from the musical ‘Song and Dance’. I also stole a line from ‘Luck in the Shadows’ by Lynn Ffwelling. The Montecito resort and casino is from the tv show ‘Las Vegas’, but no characters will be appearing here. I just wanted a semi-familiar locale, considering the closest I’ve ever come to Vegas is Europe. Oh, and the Obie awards are the basically the same thing as the Tony awards, but they’re given to Off-Broadway (OB) or Off-off-Broadway productions, and aren’t nearly so fancy.

Spoilers: basic character backgrounds; episode specific up to 2x22, to be safe.

Summary: Broadway star Rachel Berry is taking a ‘seachange’ to perform in Las Vegas. Then her high school crush, Will Schuester, brings his glee club to Vegas for the National championships, and one of them is a particularly lovely senior named Finn Hudson.

PROMPT: originally inspired by a prompt in the Glee kinkmeme (see below) but eventually finished for the AU BigBang 2012.

A/N: I was actually trying to answer a certain prompt on the glee kink meme, but it wasn’t coming. Then I realised it was because that version of Finn and Rachel wanted me to write about how they met in the first place, instead. The original GKM prompt wanted Rachel to be a Broadway icon along the lines of Barbra Streisand, but this is a few years earlier, so she’s basically at the same level as Idina Menzel.

I'd like to sent out a special thank-you and much deserved praise to my artist, seleneheart; not only did she pinch-hit for me roughly a week before the due date, but she had all her art done on time (even though I missed my original posting date for IRL reasons). You can find icons, title page and even a cover for the song listing I gave her at Acme Graphics

buying a stairway to heaven | The Avengers (2012)

Title: buying a stairway to heaven
Author[livejournal.com profile] zihna
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] jungle_ride
Fandom: The Avengers (2012)
Pairing(s): Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov, Bruce Banner/Tony Stark, past-Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Characters : Ensemble
Rating: R
Warning: Violence, swearing, improbable situations involving potentially blasphemous plotlines 
Word Count: ~35k
Summary: They may not want to save the earth (if you ask Ramiel--seriously, they're not going to call him Thor--they should just let it rot, who gives a damn about the little planet anyway), but you can be damn sure they'll avenge it.

Or, Clint Barton finds a girl in the woods and finds out he's actually a fallen angel. Who would've guessed, right?

It's the world you have to live in (Primeval)

Title: (It's not the end of the world) it's the world you have to live in (1/8)

Author: [livejournal.com profile] smaragdbird

Fandom: Primeval

Pairing: Becker/Ethan, Ethan/OMC

Rating: R

Warnings: violence, character death, killing of animals, discussion of political assassinations and mercy killing

Summary: 16 years ago Patrick Quinn and his friend Matt were stranded on the wrong side of an anomaly and were shortly separated as well afterwards. When chance brings Ethan Dobrowski back to the present he joins the ARC to wait for Danny's return, to reenact his revenge on the brother who he believes abandoned him.

Matt, having returned after being stranded in a desolate, dystopian future filled with monsters, has returned as well to prevent said future from ever happening by any means necessary.

As Ethan becomes more and more drawn to Becker he begins to question his decisions and Matt's as well but all that holds them in the ARC is a closely spun net of lies that would unravel as soon as one of them would tell the truth. But time draws near and in the face of the looming extinction on most life on earth and his personal feelings Ethan will have to make a decision.

A/N:Written for [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang.

Lots of love for [livejournal.com profile] fredbassett for the quick and thorough beta-reading :)

Technically this is the extremly long prequel to Tried and True


Basically I took the idea that Ethan might spent his 18 anomaly years in Tsarist Russia and ran

Discord and Rhyme (AI 7)

Fandom: American Idol Season 7
Pairing: David Cook/David Archuleta
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Violence, language
Word Count: 27641 words
Summary: Werewolf!AU. David Archuleta is just a regular guy trying to deal with his jerk of a roommate and get straight A's in college. But when he's attacked on the road in the middle of the night, his problems abruptly get a whole lot bigger. Suddenly, he's the newest member of David Cook's ragtag pack of werewolves, and he's struggling to get used to the idea of being able to smell how people feel, and casual cuddling all the time, not to mention, oh yeah, turning into a wolf. Just when he's starting to find his place in the pack, he begins to develop feelings for his Alpha which threaten to turn everything upside down once more.
Author's Note: This was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] aohatsu, [livejournal.com profile] carolion, and [livejournal.com profile] sir_yessir, and all the Teen Wolf they posted on my tumblr dash. It should be noted that I have never seen Teen Wolf, so I have no idea how similar or different this is. A million thanks to [livejournal.com profile] aohatsu and [livejournal.com profile] fieryrogue for the help and cheerleading. And also to [livejournal.com profile] solarbaby614 for going above and beyond, and creating fabulous art based on, like 1/3 of a story. Last but certainly not least, thank you to the mods at [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang for hosting!

Rating: PG-13

Warnings: infidelity, some homophobic language

Word Count: 6370

Summary: It's the roaring twenties and rising painter Evan Lorne seems to have finally steady work as he meets the renowned Czech scientist Radek Zelenka on a party. But falling in love is not Evan's only problem because the society he frequents is rife with drama and sex and stained by the memories of the Great War. But the decade is drawing to an end and as everything unravels and his life is once more uncertain Evan has to make a live-changing decision.

A/N:Written for [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang. Also my knowledge of life in the 20's in America comes almost solely from reading "The Great Gatsby" and watching "Boardwalk Empire" every now and then.

When he gets stuck in a time loop and is forced to relive the same day in Murray over and over, he think it's the worst thing that could have ever happened to him. But what he doesn't realize is that it just might be exactly what he needs.
