Man, my memory SUCKS

I've only signed up for two Big Bangs this year, and do you think I can remember them???  UGH!!!  So, I've decided to put the info in this post so I can find it easily.  Seriously, Memory, where do you go???

October 13: Author/Artist collaboration post goes up.

November 10: Author/Artist collaborations finalized; authors and artists may also elect to work solo, without accompanying work to compliment theirs. Note that word counts and artist minimums remain the same for multiple authors or multiple artists.

December 8-14: PRELIMINARY CHECK-IN - This will involve a comment to note your continued participation.

January 12-18: SECOND CHECK-IN - a 500-word outline/summary is due for authors or a 100-word summary of theme/focus for artists. Alternatively, a thematic sampling/sketch/portion of art (indicating cohesive theme to the work) can be submitted.

February 9: HALFWAY MARK!!! Fun games and activities will be posted during the month of February to kickstart any stalled creativity and to encourage community.

March 9-15: THIRD CHECK-IN - first 5000 words of fic are due as part of check-in. For artists, a sample sketch/batch/portion will be required, depending on your chosen medium.

April 13: ROUGH DRAFTS DUE At least 60% of your project must be completed by this point. ("Rough draft" will be further defined for authors and artists in the Rules post coming this week.)

May 11-17: FOURTH AND FINAL CHECK-IN - NO requirements other than a statement of your progress; this is also the penalty-free DROP-OUT DEADLINE.

June 8: Probably some cheerleading for the final push will occur around this date.

July 6: Completed, final products due.

July 27: Posting goes live! At this point, if you've elected to host your work yourself, you will have ONE WEEK to upload your work to one of the vetted platforms and make a masterpost to the community page. All others will be hosted at the upcoming website, uploaded and made public by the mods (or other site maintainer) on this date.

Quotes

"All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need...fantasies to make life bearable."

REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little --"

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

-- Susan and Death in Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

"And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based."

-- Lord Vetinari in Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.

-- Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

As a wizard, it was something that Ponder had only before encountered in acorns: a tiny soundless voice which said, yes, I am but a small, green, simple object - but I dream about forests.

-- Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

In the 24th century, there will be no hunger. There will be no greed. And every child will know how to read.

-- Gene Roddenberry, as repeated by Jonathan Frakes in the documentary How William Shatner Changed the World

---------------------

We've got two lives, one we're given and the other one we make
And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way.

-- Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Hard Way from the album Come On, Come On

---------------------

Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want.

-- John Mayer, Waiting on the World to Change from the album Continuum

---------------------

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try again tomorrow."

-- Mary Anne Radmacher, as seen in Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Tales to Inspire

---------------------

I never loved the soldier
Until there was a war.
Or thought about tomorrow
'til my baby hit the floor.
I only talk to God
When somebody's about to die.
I never cherished freedom
Freedom never cries.

-- Five for Fighting, Freedom Never Cries from the album Two Lights

---------------------

It may sound absurd: but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed: but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream

-- Five for Fighting, Superman (It's Not Easy) from the album American Town

---------------------

Had a dream last night took a time travellin' ride
Back to my childhood where those monsters reside
They snack on innocence and dine on self-esteem
But I like to be in touch with what makes me scream
Vampires, mummies and the Holy Ghost
These are the things that terrify me the most.
No alien, psychopath or MTV host
Scares me like vampires,mummies and the Holy Ghost.

-- Jimmy Buffett, Vampires, Mummies and the Holy Ghost from the album Fruitcakes

---------------------

"I want to believe that... the dead are not lost to us. That they speak to us... as part of something greater than us - greater than any alien force. And if you and I are powerless now, I want to believe that if we listen, to what's speaking, it can give us the power to save ourselves."

-- Fox Mulder, The X-Files from the episode The Truth, pt. 2
