Hi everybody! I hope you've all been doing well in the past few months. I have planned on starting a second round of this bang in a couple months, but was wondering if there are still people interested in participating. Round one was extremely fun to organize and seeing the the results of everybody's hard efforts really paid off. I'd love for there to be a round two!
Would you be interested in participating in a second round?
Would you like this round to be longer (> 6 months) or shorter (< 6 months)?

Sign ups start October 19th and end the 31st! Everyone is more than welcome to join the community, either to participate or wait for the fics to come out! I'd also appreciate it if someone wanted to volunteer to help mod the community, as I'm currently doing it alone. Please come and join in!
Thanks mod for letting us promote here!
Round 1 is officially over.
I can't believe that six months have flown by so quickly. That's crazy! I'd like to thank all of you who have participated -- you've created some truly beautiful works. I'm so, so happy with how everything turned out. I never thought that there would be so many awesome submissions!
Due to the success of this round, there will most likely be a second round in the near future, either during the Winter or Spring hiatus (or both!), so keep your eyes peeled! If you have any suggestions for mini-challenges or improvements for future rounds, please let me know.
I'd like to also point everybody towards the Blaine Big Bang
, which just started posting yesterday at beyond_dapper
Again, thank you all so much for being a part of this! See you all during round 2!
Faith, Trust and Pixie DustAuthor: aeloraBeta: whenidanceArtist: raving_piratesGenre:
After a bad break up with the love of his life, Blaine Anderson, his senior year of high school, Kurt Hummel had pretty much given up on dreams, and instead, focused on reality. Still, it’s kind of difficult to mock the dreams of the brides he plans weddings for, especially once he begins working for the one place where dreams are made - the Disney Weddings Group at Walt Disney World. It’s even more difficult to turn a blind eye to his own dreams when Blaine turns up portraying Disney’s hottest new character, the Swan Prince, and begins a ridiculous campaign of attempting to win Kurt back that includes castles, fireworks, fairy tales and a giant talking mouse. Blaine needs to break past the walls Kurt has built up over the last six years. Is that special Disney magic enough to prove to him that dreams really can come true?A/N:
At the end of the fic.

by Freelance WhalesBeta: soldierlyArtist: naderegenSummary:
(Season 2 AU Where Blaine transfers to McKinley, Burt is already married to Carole, and Lauren joins the New Directions at the beginning of the year with Sam and Blaine)When Kurt Hummel was six years old, he told his mother he wanted a soulmate. Ten years later, when he shakes Blaine Anderson’s hand, a spark shoots through his entire body. At first, Kurt writes it off as nothing, just static electricity. But as days go by, they both realize that they are starting to get constant headaches, stomach cramps, the whole nine. The only time the pain stops? When they’re near each other. The longer they’re together, the stronger the bond becomes, eventually escalating to needing physical contact. So when they realize they need to literally be together 24/7 to survive, how will they cope?fic masterpost art masterpost
If You WouldAuthor:
RWarnings (if any):
The first time Kurt was asked where he wanted to go to college, his answer was "London". He always knew it was just a dream - especially after Blaine came along - but what if it didn't have to be? What if he could go to London for college? Would his relationship survive?Author's Note:
Thank you's almost as long as the fic itself can be found at the masterpost, but in short - thank you pandoras5thbox
for being the most fabulous beta and artist respectively.

Language, sex, mention of character death (Burt)Summary:
AU. In Lima, Kurt Hummel scrunches up his nose as he peels off his grease-stained coveralls after a long day at the garage. In Westerville, Blaine Anderson sits on the bed of his childhood bedroom and stares at the luggage he hasn’t fully unpacked since he’s been back home, about four months ago. Tonight, they’re going to meet for the first time in a dive gay bar. The year is 2018, this is Ohio and adult life is nothing like either of them had imagined it would be.Author’s Note :
Huge thanks to my artist evinyakwende
(please go to the Art Post and leave a comment on the gorgeous banner!). All remaining mistakes and typos are to be blamed on me, but much gratitude to BB, who proofread this story for me at the last minute because I couldn’t seem to stop tweaking it long enough to send a copy to secret_chord25
who was supposed to beta for me. (I’m sorry I didn’t get to work with you on this one! I was so concerned with sending you an unfinished version that I ended up too late to collaborate with you. :( Maybe next time!) Finally a big thank you to raving_pirates
for all the work that went into organizing this challenge! Masterpost***Art Post
