Pairing: Helen/Kate
Rating: E
Word Count: ~ 32k
Category: Adventure, Romance
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Summary: Kate joining Garris, Helen blowing up her Sanctuary - the events up to and including SFN II have left scars behind. Now Helen and Kate have to fight for their relationship - and fight they do. But all's well that ends well...
Tags: Established Relationship, Relationship Problems, Fighting for a Relationship, Emotional Hurt/Comfort, Action/Adventure, BDSM, Dirty Talk, Historical Roleplay, Drawing, Historical Costumes, Tickling, D/s
Author's Note:
I really hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it (even though I sometimes felt like screaming at the way those two behaved ;) (Constructive) feedback would be very much appreciated!



The banner and chapter headers were done by featherxquill, 'my' lovely artist ;) Thank you so much!!! You're awesome!
An endless supply of hugs also goes to lisa_writes who, very patiently, helped me with this story! Thank you so much, I don't know what I would have done without your feedback and beta!
And, of course, thanks to MarronC who endured loooong descriptions of the 'and they... and then they...' variety. Very patient as well ;) *hugs*

I'm going to post about one chapter a day, so the story should be complete by the end of November (I have a deadline coming up and not enough time to post all 18 chapters at once). I'll edit this post with the new links, and maybe post a short notice when it's complete, if that's helpful?

Art Claiming Will Be Up Tomorrow

Hello,

So my wi-fi at home isn't working today due to a lightening storm and I can't get to a coffee shop or anything like that until tomorrow, (I'm posting this from my phone). So I will be posting the claims tomorrow morning around 10:30 Pacific Time.

I know that the deadline is over but since I can't post anything yet, if there are any authors out there who haven't sent in their drafts yet but would like to please go ahead and do so, I will take them.

Hello ever one,

So today is the day. All Roughs must be turned in today by midnight tonight, as long as it is still August 18th, where you live and the time stamp will show that then you're good to go.

If you're not done with with your rough all the way, it has to be at least 50% of whichever bang that you signed up for and you have to have some kind of outline for the rest. This way the artist will have something to work with.

Second Check In

Hello everyone,

So today is the second check in for authors. For this one the check in part is mandatory, since we're getting close to the Rough Drafts being due, I need to see how many stories we might be getting and if I need to go on a hunt for more artists. So just a small comment below letting me if you're still in and if you'll be good to go with the rough when it comes time for it.

Now, the second part of this check in - the Snippet. If you would like to give a seek-peek of your work, you're more than welcome to. I just asked that it's no more than a few sentences. That can go into the same comment as your check in or as a reply to your own comment.

Thank you all very much and I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Rules and FAQ

Hello and welcome to the  sfa_bigbang! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write, create art, cheer and otherwise enable each other through this challenge to create Sanctuary fanworks.


1. What is a Big Bang?

There are many different types of big bangs, all varying slightly, but generally a big bang is a process in which authors write long fics and artists make art for that piece of work. Simple in concept, right?

2. What makes this Big Bang different?
Well, this is a Mega, Big, and Mini Bang, depending on how long your story ends up being. A Mega Bang is 15K (15,000), a Big Bang for this challenge is 10K (10000) and a Mini Bang is only 5K (5,000), You may of course sign up for one and if need be, change before the art claiming.

3. What can I write?

Well, of course it has to be Sanctuary! Crossovers are permitted, but you must run the idea past a mod first, and you can only crossover with one other fandom/universe. So Sanctuary/Stargate is allowed, but Sanctuary/Warehouse 13/The West Wing is not.

4. Can I write slash?

Yes, you may write slash, het, gen, (any pairing on those first two, EXCEPT INCEST AND ANYTHING INVOLVING A STATUTORY PAIRING. There will be no exceptions. I will ban you.). When you post, you must warn for non-con and dub-con and any other warning that you might have in your story.

3. What's the timeline?

Sign-ups for Authors: March 20- April 17

Sign-ups for Artists: March 20- May 1

First Checkpoint: May 1
Second Checkpoint and a Snippet: June 1

Rough Drafts are Due: August 1

Artist Claiming: August 3
Third Checkpoint: August 14

Art Rough Drafts: September 1

Posting Begins: October 1

*Checkpoints will just be a simple posting comment saying how you're doing and whether or not you're still in the challenge or not.


4. Do I have to join the comm?

Yes you do. This is where all information will be passed along and also where the posting will eventually take place.

5. How will posting work?

We're not going to set up a separate archive. The author and artist will post the fic and artwork where ever they normally post stuff, and then one of you (your team will decide on that) will post a master post here with the links to the fic and the art.

DO NOT POST YOUR FIC OR ART BEFORE OCTOBER 1.

6. May I sign up for author and artist?

If you feel that you will be able to handle both and make it to the posting date with no problems then yes, you may sign-up for both.

7. May I write more then one story?

Again, if you feel that you can handle the work, then yes.

8.Can I co-write a story with a friend?

Yes, only one of you would have to sign-up, just please make a note of it when you sign-up.

I think that's it, if you have any questions, please leave a comment here on this post or PM me.

Greeting and Round Two Is On It's Way!

Greeting everyone,

So grav_ity and I have been talking through PM and we have decided to try for a Round Two of the this bang.

I'm rubystandish and am going to be a new mod/co-mod/whatever you wish to call me, :D


A Few Changes...Okay So Maybe Just One Big Change
So as I was asking around, one thing that I kept hearing was that maybe this round could be a mini bang, So this round you'll have the choice to take part in a Mini Bang (5K), Big Bang (10K), or the Mega Bang (15K). You can always sign up for one and then change later on in the challenge if need be. Other than that, everything is going to run just like it did before.

The timeline is currently being work on and will be posted soon, so keep an eye out for that; as well as the FAQ and Rule, Authors Sign-ups, and Artists Sign-ups. Also I'm working on some banners so that way we can get out there and pimp this com and challenge.

I can't wait to get started and I hope to see you all there...in a matter of speaking.

Ouroboros: Darkness Ascending, Part 2/2

Title: Ouroboros: Darkness Ascending, Part 2
Rating: R for Violence
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Pairings: Helen/John (past/UST)
Spoilers: Season 2 AU.
Summary: S2 AU - The Cabal and the Sanctuary network are at war. With only one remaining super-abonrmal at their disposal, the Cabal has switched tactics and begun a silent war of attrition. Helen Magnus must not only deal with this threat, but with internal politics that might tear apart her life's work even before the Cabal can. Keeping the peace would be a tall order even if she wasn't having visions of her dead daughter, and hearing whispers in the dark. Is Helen just crazy, or is the message of salvation real? And if she accepts, could it bring about the resurrection of one of the most powerful races the planet has ever known?
