I’ve looked on SWG which is also e-script but can’t see one on there, either.

What is it?

A Tolkien-fandom-wide event celebrating the talent of our fanwork creators, co-run by Raiyana and Narya, your friendly community mods. This challenge is open to all characters, genres and ratings, and all canons that fall under the Tolkien fandom umbrella. (Yes, this includes movieverse, lesser known works by Tolkien, and/or other works with a clear link to his life or creative output, like the new Tolkien film or the Shadow of Mordor games.)


No, but, Raiy, what is it specifically?

A Reverse Bang is a type of Big Bang event in which artists submit art prompts (up to 3 total, though each prompt can be more than one image/visual artwork). The art prompts are then claimed by writers who will write a piece of fiction (min. 5,000 words) based on the prompt chosen.


Big Bang? Wait, are you going to make me write a novel, Narya?!

No, minimum word count is set at 5,000 words. And you have almost three months. Trust us, it's doable ;)


What’s the time frame?


April 22 – Sign-ups open

May 12 – Artist sign-ups close

May 17 – Art Draft due

May 19, 00:00 CET – Art Drafts open for previews to signed-up Authors

May 25 – Author sign-ups close

May 27, 20:00 CET – Claims open [What time is that for me?]

June 2 – Post-Claim Check In – This is to ensure that our collaborators have got in touch with each other

July 7 – Check in. We will be asking how your collaboration is progressing

July 28 – Check in (authors should be roughly halfway through writing fics by now)

August 4 – Art due; final version of the art must be provided to the Author.

August 11 – Deadline to abandon your fic to a pinch hitter AND final check in. We will ask:


- Whether you have discussed posting logistics with your artist (if you’re embedding art in your AO3 story, for example)

- Whether you have specific posting needs re publicizing date/time frame


August 25 – Fics due in AO3 collection (unless you’re writing a last minute pinch hit, in which case we can be a little more flexible)

September 1 – Collection reveals; staggered Tumblr reblogs begin.


The full FAQs can be found here.


I want to join in but I don't want to commit to a 5k word fic...

That's fine! We encourage treats of all lengths. If you think you might like to write a treat but don't want to commit to a full collaboration, sign up anyway so you can have access to the gallery, and then simply don't participate in claims. The signup itself is not an obligation.


You can also sign up as a pinch-hitter only.


Sounds great! Where do I sign up?

Starting from 22 April, you can sign up here (Artists) or here (Writers).


Please sign up using either your Tumblr, DeviantArt, Dreamwidth or AO3 name, and tell us which one you've used. (Last year we had a hard time getting in touch with some people as they'd used a completely different handle from any of their fandom aliases. We'd prefer to avoid that this time.)

Authors must have an AO3 account to participate, although if you don't have one as at signups, don't panic - please either join their waiting list in plenty of time, or contact Raiyana or Narya, and we'll help you to get one.


I’ve signed up, now what do I need to do?

Now it’s time to get creative!
