Greetings all. 

December is coming around again and i'm thinking of doing a second round of the rsbigbang.
I know that there were some problems last year that made the fest a lot less enjoyable for some last year (Like not enough communication) so if I  (deathjunke) do commit to a second year, this is your chance to make suggestions about how things can be done better or what problems you had last year. Please be courteous in your comments, rudeness will not be tolerated.



Comments will be screened.
Thank you

Title: Dear Moony: An Adventure in Missives
Author: brighty18
Artists: fabledtruant and phiso_kun
Genre: Adventure, romance, travelogue, epistolary
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Between the end of PoA and the early chapters of GoF, Sirius was on the lam. Though he traveled the world, his heart was in just one place.
Warnings: Foul language, mild drug use, letter writing, pointless Hayao Miyazaki crossover, avian violence, etc
Word Count: About 17,500
Author's Notes: First off, a HUGE thank you to the my fabulous beta, Cackling_madly. I could not have done it without you. Second, another big thank you to the Mods and to Phiso_kun and Gizenshi. Third, a very, very special thanks to the awesome Forest_rose for giving me this idea in the first place. Sirius promises that he will resume the correspondence soon. Much of this story is based on real places and people. Varosha is a very real place – as are Japan, Jamaica, and Taos. Los Lobos is a real band, and some of the characters are loosely based on real people. The bus, however, is shamelessly stolen from Hayao Miyazaki. Any resemblance of any avian character to real life birds is purely coincidental.
Phiso_kun's Notes: The idea for this mix came up quite unexpectedly, but as soon as I started working on it I knew I had to finish. I must admit it was a challenge, as I was determined to try and make it sound more like a soundtrack than a mix CD, but it was a fun challenge that I enjoyed working on. I hope it does the story justice, and that you might hear a few songs you've never heard before. Please note that the link includes the track list and cover image as well.

Title: Straight On 'Til Morning
Author: so_jayded
Artists: a_shadow_there and nerak_rose
Genre: Drama, AU/AR
Rating: R
Summary: It’s July of 1980 and Sirius Black is living in a world at war. He’s overworked, exhausted, and to make it worse, he’s always fighting with Moony. While his personal life is spiralling out of control, he’s left to try and figure out who left a broken locket on his night stand, what curse is hiding under its clasp, and how his long-missing and presumed-dead brother can still be infuriatingly obtuse from beyond the grave.
Warnings: (somewhat) graphic injury, a couple swears, allusions to sex (but no actual smut)
Word Count: 25,305
Author's Notes: Oh, this fic. This fic. I think it may have actually killed me and then resurrected me so it could hurt me more at some point. Many thanks to Beta L for her support and editing and A and B for their encouragement. I hope you enjoy my first ever (!!) R/S fic.
A_shadow_there's Notes: I tried to create a mix that dealt in some way with the plot elements of So_jayded's story and with Remus and Sirius' relationship as it tried to stand up under the pressures of the war. I hope I've achieved that to some degree, and done Jayde's story justice. I certainly tried to.
Nerak_rose's Notes: These are little more than sketches and I'd have loved to have the time to turn them into something decent (your fic so deserves it), but I hope you like them anyway. It's also your fault I gave anatomy a shot (and came out of it alive), so pride yourself on that. :D

Summary: The dreadful events that took place on Halloween 1981 in Godric’s Hollow can’t be changed, but what if the actions afterwards weren’t so set in stone?
Warnings: Canonical character deaths
Word Count: 23,968
Author's Notes: I haven’t written in what feels like forever and I’ve never completed anything this long, so I want to say a huge thanks to my beta for putting up with me. Hope you all enjoy it.

Title: The Twist of the Knife
Author: inside_the_veil
Artists: mypretty_art and dustmouth
Genre: Romance
Rating: R
Summary: James and Sirius feel like they've got something to prove. Nothing to worry about – it's only a silly bet, right? And it's just Remus, after all.
Warnings: none, apart from some swearing
Word Count: ~ 40,000
Author's Notes: Thanks to the lovely K & J, who offered support and criticism. <3 To avoid confusion – I have taken the liberty of moving The Prank to January/February of the boys' 5th year. This story takes place in their 6th.
Mypretty_art's Notes: I'm really quite pleased, on the whole, how these came out. The collaboration aspect of this Bang was great and my author really pushed me, and my art is better because of that. I hope you enjoy & please comment on the art as well as the fic! :-D
