Round 3 FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions


What is a reverse bang?
A reverse bang is the opposite of a big bang. Instead of authors writing fanfiction and artists making art for that fic, it goes the other way around. The artists create art and the authors get to choose a piece of art to create fan fiction for.

How do I sign up?
When sign-ups start, two sign up posts will go up. One for authors, and one for artists.

Do I need a livejournal account to take part?
A livejournal account will be needed to make the reveal post to the xmenreversebang community at the scheduled time of posting, so one member of the team will need to have one. If neither person in a team has a livejournal account go ahead and send the post information to the mods and we will post it to on the teams behalf. Authors and artists are welcome to sign up with other accounts as long as a valid email address is provided so we can have contact with you.
