We want to thank everyone who participated and read all the lovely stories and saw all the wonderful art provided for the challenge this year. It wasn't totally smooth, but we all rallied toward the end so that everyone who wrote a story got art and posting didn't have to be delayed too long.
That's it for this round, though. We'll see you all again next year. The wait won't be too long, though, because next year we'll be hosting suitsbigbang during the summer months for two reasons: (1) most people won't be in class during that time and (2) Suits will be back on the air!
Hopefully we'll see everyone back along with some new participants :)
Thanks again to all the artists, writers, and reads! :D
Title: The Haunting (Or Something Lame Like That)( FicCollapse )( ArtCollapse )
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Harvey/Mike, Donna, Louis Litt, Aaron, Jessica Pearson, Grammy, Sam (SPN), Dean (SPN)
Word Count: 27,435
Warning(s): violence, language, some sexual situations
Summary: After witnessing a tragic accident outside the Pearson Hardman building, Mike falls victim to a series of unexplainable attacks. Harvey tries to help him when he realizes that something beyond Mike’s control is happening, but only succeeds in becoming enmeshed in the mystery alongside Mike. A pair of strange men begin dogging their steps through the city, leaving Harvey uneasy and wondering what Mike’s gotten them into now.
A/N: This is the most fun I’ve ever had while writing a story, and is the longest thing I’ve ever written. This fandom is a joy and a boon to me and I’m thankful to have the opportunity to be even a small part of it, especially with the wonderful people making a home in it! I never would have finished this or possibly even started it if it wasn’t for ladyknightanka, zekkass, and c8h7n3o2 over on Twitter and here on Livejournal, what with zekkass having introduced me to word wars in all their glory and ladyknightanka having guided me through the confusion of taking part in my first big bang. My artist, loverstar, did an amazing job on the graphic she made for me, I couldn’t have asked for more. I’m more than a little convinced that atennuh is the best beta ever, as she put up with all of my oddities and helped improve every aspect of my story with more than a little cheerleading. I sorely hope I have the chance to work with her again.

Mike Ross/Harvey Specter, with appearances by Louis Litt, Donna Paulsen, Jessica Pearson, Kyle Durant, Jenny Griffith, Grammy, and OCsSummary:
The thing about life was, you never knew when a Rick Sorkin was going to walk in with a briefcase full of illicit drugs and take you by surprise for what would feel like the first time in fifteen years.
Mike was drawn to Harvey right from the start. Harvey brought out something in him that he'd never even known he'd wanted or needed. And together with Harvey, Mike explores his submission and what it means to give it to the one person in his life who knows what to do with it. It's a long and complicated road for both of them, but they make each other better in the end. Notes:
Written for suitsbigbang
, because let's face it - Suits is awesome.
I was going to do this on my own, since we all know I'm addicted to big bang challenges - but then I met midnight_writer
and she became the Harvey to my Mike. She's perfect and this would never have happened without her.
This fic started off on a whim, we thought we'd write something that maybe hit a few different prompts on the kink meme. We wanted to explore the characters of Mike and Harvey and more than that we wanted to take time to talk about the sort of relationship they were entering in to. We wanted to see the way it developed and the high and low points involved in all relationships, but particularly one involving the dynamics of Domination and Submission.
We're both really pleased with how this turned out in the end. And we're looking forward to exploring the story of Mike and Harvey's relationship as it continues on from this point, so look for that in the future if you enjoy this.

Vinculum SomnisAuthor: maja_liPairings:
Harvey/Mike, background Arthur/Eames (Inception)Rating:
explicit sex; minor violence, psychological issues, and dream goreSummary:
When Harvey's little brother contacts him for the first time in two years, it can only be for one reason: to ask for Harvey's help with an extraction. Now, Harvey's being drawn back into a world he thought he'd left behind, with the added bonus of dragging Mike along with him. And if there's one person Harvey doesn't want in his head, it's Mike Ross. Crossover with Inception.Author's Note:
So, so many thanks to my amazing betas rattetta
, who is the Tommy Shepherd of proofreaders, and khasael
, who coaxed, coddled, cheerleaded, and when necessary kicked my ass
(though I wear the bruises with pride) through this entire fic, without whom it never could have been finished. ♥Artist's Note:
This mix is titled "a gun and an eagle's eye" and contains 12 tracks, all .mp3, featuring bands such as M83, The Postal Service and Foster the People. I really hope you like it!( The FicCollapse )( The ArtCollapse )

Huge thanks to the mods of suitsbigbang
for running this, and for being hugely helpful to me on more than one occasion. Also to forsweatervests

Before Cuba, before the divorce-Charles and Erik are thrown into the future by one of the kids they’re trying to recruit on their roadtrip. They land in Manhattan near Pearson and Hardman where Mike is assaulted by their memories and is called to action to help save the world.

As you all know, posting begins tomorrow! For the next week expect a new story to be posted each day.
I want to take this time to thank everyone for a successful first round. There was a minor setback, but we're back on track now thanks to all of you and a couple of you who pitched in a little extra towards the end to make sure everyone got art for their fics.
Remember to post your masterposts here in the main community. Also, just to let you all know, you don't have to wait until it's your posting date in your part of the world. You can post as long as its your date anywhere in the world.
Without further ado, let the posting commence (after midnight 12/14)!
It's almost time. As you might know already, we've hit a snag and posting will have to be delayed. However, when we have everything sorted, you will receive an email from us letting you know when it's time for you to post your story with the art created for it. Within the next couple of days, you will finally receive your art if it has already been turned in.
Until then, below you will find the header you should use when creating your masterpost for the community. Previously, it was planned to not cross-post your stories or art until posting for SBB was over. However, since we had only 8 stories in the end we have decided to let you go ahead and cross-post if you want to.
Artists: you will not be posting your art to the community. You may post it elsewhere, but for the purposes of this challenge it is up to the writers to post your art.
If you have any questions, shoot us an email as suitsbigbang @ gmail.com.
The end is almost here! On Dec. 3rd all final stories and art is due before midnight. Remember, as long as it's still Dec. 3rd somewhere in the world, you are submit.
How to submit stories
- Make sure your story is in .doc or .rtf, not .docx or any other format.
- Send the final story as an attachment to the mod email account (suitsbigbang @ gmail.com).
- Along with the attachment, be sure to include this header:
How to submit art
- If you are submitting any sort of images, please attach them as a file and/or upload the images and send the links.
- If you are submitting mixes, make sure the mix is in a compressed file (.zip or .rar) and upload it to a site such as megaupload or mediafire. Other sites are ok as well, but try to avoid ones like yousendit or sendspace because those files tend to expire.
- If you made cover art for a mix and/or picked out lyrics for the songs that relate to the story, attach/upload those as well and send them in the email
- Send an email to the mod email account (suitsbigbang @ gmail.com) containing your files and/or links along with the summary number of the story you created art for.
- Be sure to include any notes you want the author to have about what you've created.
If you have any questions about this process, please comment here or shoot us an email.
