So apparently I'm a crazy cat lady. At least in my husband's opinion. River and I were having a conversation last night in the kitchen. River asked me a question. What was I supposed to do, ignore him?

It's not like this happened!


The Debate

Title: The Debate
Challenge/Prompt: spn_bigpretzel DEW: Bobby/Dean
Warning(s): None
Word Count: 300
Characters: Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Bobby Singer
Summary: Sam and Dean’s debate interrupts Bobby’s research.

The loud crash from the living room followed by the sounds of a scuffle and grunts drew Bobby’s attention from the lore book he had his head buried in for research. “What the bloody hell . . .” escaped his lips when he heard Dean’s voice.

“Take that back!” Dean huffed out angrily.

“Make me!” Sam challenged back at his brother.

If the Winchester’s were realtors, I’m pretty sure this is how they’d list a house.

Anyone who has been with us since the beginning knows that this was one of the first big challenges that we ever did as a community. For eight years running now it has been our flagship challenge and it is a hallmark of who we are, so of course we are thrilled to continue this wonderful spn_bigpretzel tradition!

This is the sign-up post FOR AUTHORS who wish to participate in the 8th Annual spn_bigpretzel Spring Fic Exchange.

ARTISTS will sign-up at a later date, once we know how many stories need illustrating.  And, yes, you can participate as both an author and an artist if you wish.

How long does the fic have to be? A minimum of 1000 words.  The sky is the limit if your muse is well and truly prodded, but don't get too ambitious.  Remember, you're writing this as a gift and you have limited time.  We don't want anyone to go giftless when the final posting date comes.

How does it work for authors? Anyone who wants to participate must include 3-5 prompts on this post and list any preferences they may have (see questionnaire below). When author claiming starts, you will claim a person, not just one of their prompts. That person -- along with all of their prompts -- then gets crossed off the "available" list. .

How does it work for artists? Midway through the process, we'll ask each author to post a short blurb about their story so that the artists who'd like to participate can stake a claim. (Artists are expected to produce a story banner as a minimum, but if inspiration strikes, then go for it!)  The author and the artist should work together to produce the best outcome for each other and for the original prompter!

As last year’s schedule seemed to work pretty well, we’re going to run along very similar lines to last year:

2019 Schedule (may be subject to very minor changes)

Prompt Posting: Monday March 11th - Friday March 22nd

Author Claiming: Saturday March 23rd - Friday 29th March

Posting of story synopsis for artist claiming: Friday 19th April

Finished story/art posting: Friday May 24th onwards (posting period will depend on number of participants)

Please copy and paste the questions below into the comments and fill in the blanks along with leaving your 3-5 prompts.  Remember, this is BigPretzel, so keep the prompts light in tone.  No dark!fic, no rip-your-heart-out angst, nothing intended to depress the reader for weeks, and no RPF, please. 

Think humorous, cracky, zany, fluffy or just downright sweet ...  and crossover prompts are more than welcome as long as they, too are light or humorous and the main focus is on Supernatural.

Note: This little questionnaire is intended to aid an author in tailoring their story to your preferences. I'm sure it doesn't need to be said, but please don't bash in your preferences. If you *really* dislike a certain character, genre, story arc, etc, bear in mind that not everyone will share your views, so please be respectful!

Happy Birthday

I can't believe that 17 years ago today these two came into the world.

Happy birthday!
