There are many different types of bigbangs, all varying slightly, but generally a bigbang is a process in which authors write long fics (here, 25,000 words or longer) and artists make art for that piece of work. Simple in concept, right? This bigbang specializes in the genre hurt/comfort. Everything preliminary for this bigbang is hosted in this livejournal community, but on the reveal date, all contributions (art, stories, vids, fanmixes, etc.) will be hosted on a separate website archive (likely AO3). When everything is ready, the archive goes live, resulting in you going blind from trying to read all these huge stories and checking out all the fantastic artwork and vids. Sounds fun, right?
