Greetings, omgspnbigbangers! Happy May (and Happy Mother's Day to some of you).

Artist claims are up over on spn_j2_bigbang. So if you are an artist, this is your chance to claim great fic and collaborate with an author in making this year's big bang a success!

Now it is time for writers to work with Betas and edit their stories and for artists to work on amazing art!

Need help understanding the claiming process?

Have a question about art resources?

Still need help finding a beta?

Greetings omgspnbigbangers! It's that time of year again, May 1 is almost upon us and it is nearly time for writers to turn in their rough drafts for the spn_j2_bigbang. Soon after that, it will be artist claims.

Whether you are new to the challenge a 10+year veteran or somewhere in between, this is your space to post questions and get answers and to cheer each other over the finish line! Step right up and post a question or answer in the comments.

Happy writing! You can do it!
