Maybe it's time for the universe to have a reset

Title: Maybe it's time for the universe to have a reset
Author: umlautless, but that journal has been fic-free for almost a decade, so posted on diacritical
Artist: jenni_snake
Fandom: Big Bang Theory
Pairing(s): Stuart/Leonard, Stuart/OMC, Stuart/OFC
Rating: Mature/R (language, drug use, sex; the language is more vulgar than you'd hear on network TV at 10 PM, but the sex is less explicit than you'd see on cable)
Warnings: (in no particular order) Drug use, casual sex, infidelity, unplanned pregnancy, adoption, depression, homelessness, parade of original characters
Word Count: ~36k
Summary: Initially inspired by the prompt "Just... just someone love him. Hug him. Make him happy. With or without Zoloft." The story of Stuart's life took on a life of it's own. Leonard and Stuart have something of a slowly developing relationship made of equal parts restrained contentment and frustrating detachment. Or: "When I look back and think about times I was really unconditionally happy, and it wasn't quickly marred by my ability to make exactly the wrong choice at every intersection, it was 1993. And then, maybe last Thursday."

Notes: A day late, but hopefully not a dollar short.  Thanks to my beta, who lacks on online persona, for enduring months of me babbling about this, and always providing great ideas. Thanks to my artist, Jenni_Snake, who did not read my early draft and run far away from me and my terrible ideas, and made me some awesome cover art:
Awesome Cover Art

Prologue | Chapter 1 | Los Angeles | Chapter 2 | Providence | Chapter 3 | Oakland | Chapter 4 | Alhambra | Chapter 5 | Epilogue

Read it on AO3 (Eventually).

Going Where We've Never Gone Before - Sheldon/Penny - PG-13

Title: Going Where We've Never Gone Before
Author: muir_wolf
Artist: notalwaysweak
Pairing(s): Sheldon/Penny (background Leonard/Leslie; Stuart/Amy; Raj/Wil; Howard/Bernadette)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: some language that wouldn't make it on basic cable, magic people making judgmental statements about HP fans
Word Count: ~15k
Summary: Urban fantasy AU. Penny steps through a crack in the wall, and then things get complicated. (Or: studying magic, working in a magic bookshop, going to auditions, playing match-maker, saving the world(s), and trying to make it big is all Quite Enough without also falling in love with one Sheldon Cooper, thankyouverymuch.)

A Mighty Roar

Title: A Mighty Roar
Author: jazzfic
Artist: fujiidom
Pairing: Gen mostly, with some Penny/Sheldon, Amy/Wil, Leonard/Leslie, Howard/Bernadette
Rating: R
Warnings: Major character deaths, coarse language
Word Count: ~32,600
The entrepreneur, he was a prodigy, now a dreamer.
The geneticist, she turned the impossible to life.
The engineer, he built an island, the vet, she mended long bones.
The ranger, she kept a gun by her side.
The lawyer, he knew from the start.
The programmer, he built a trapdoor in code.
The palaeobotanist, he carved out leaves, the palaeontologist, he found an egg.
The mathematician, she spent her life playing bluff.
And the many things that should be dead, they opened their jaws and thumped their legs to the ground.

FYI: Upcoming posts!

Hello all!

Just a quick brief on what's happening from here. We already have a few posts in the queue and ready to go, so we will be pushing those through in the next 12 hours or so. The rest are going to be slightly delayed so those will go through as soon as things are ready and posted. So everyone who has finished will get posted eventually, we promise!

BBBB 2012 - How to post your work!

It's almost time for this year's works to go live! We would like to see all posts in the moderation queue by Saturday September 22 if possible, since we plan on posting them to the community on September 24. (We have a couple artists who did not check in with us, so please do so at this post ASAP. Authors, if you have not received any finished work from your artist in time for your post to go in the queue, let us know so we can work something out with you.)

Now, on to how to post your work to the community...

STEP ONE: Make sure you join the community. You can check your invites here and accept our invitation at your earliest convenience. As of this posting, we have sent invites to all five of the authors still participating. Artists/Mixers/Vidders do not need to join.

STEP TWO: As soon as your fic is finished and ready to go into the queue, copy and paste the form below and all pertinent information. Do not post the body of your story here, only the information below. You may post the fic itself anywhere you'd like (LJ, DW, AO3 or somewhere else), but you must post a link here on the community using the template below. If this is your first year participating, feel free to look at 2010's masterlist to get an idea of how posting works.

Artists, fanmixers, vidders - you will provide a link to your finished work to your assigned author so they can link it along with their finished fic. If you can provide thumbnails of your work, then please do so as well. :)

The community is on moderated posting so that if there are any issues with your header and links, we can have you fix them before they go public. (This means your post will not show up immediately in the community as the moderators will have to approve it first.) If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments below or e-mail us at and we'll get back to you ASAP.

And that's all there is to it! Good luck finishing up and we look forward to seeing what you've produced!

Artist Check-In! (REQUIRED)

Sorry for the extreme lateness of this post, but apparently my calendar reminders broke and so did my own brain.

In any case, we need all artists to check in here in the comments. The easiest way to do this is to take a screenshot of your work as it currently stands, whether it's art/graphics or a playlist for a fanmix or the timeline for a fanvideo. Just any kind of proof that you have been working on your stuff is good for us!

Comments are screened, so just leave your check-in there ASAP.

Thank you!

Author check-in! (REQUIRED)

Hello authors! There is over a month left until posting begins, but we wanted to check in with our authors to see how your progress is going. At this point, you should be in contact with your artist. You should also have secured a beta reader for your fic. Please leave a comment below to let us know that you are on track and expect to be finished by September 22. If there are any issues or delays, let us know there as well.

Artists, your check-in will be on August 29, so be prepared!
