11th-Aug-2012 10:39 pm - [sticky post] Olympic Mini Big Bang Challenge!
Welcome to the Olympic Mini Big Bang Challenge!

The Olympics may be drawing to a close in less than 24 hours, but it doesn't mean that the party has to end. What's the Olympic Mini Big Bang challenge, you ask? To put it simply - it's a big bang challenge for our favourite Olympic pairings on a smaller scale. It's a place where writers and artists can collaborate and create amazing fanworks featuring the hottie mchothots of the Olympics (both Summer and Winter, of course!).

I did say that this is a mini big bang, so instead of the usual 20K word-minimum of regular big bangs, the minimum word count for this challenge is 5000 words. There is no upper limit, so go nuts, y'all!

Of course, a big bang just isn't a big bang without awesome artists. For the purposes of this challenge, the following falls under the art umbrella: trad or digital art, manips, icons, fanvids, fan mixes and soundtracks, wallpapers, and cover art.

Summary: Boarding School AU. In which Louis and Kristian co-host a radio show, everyone overuses twitter, and there’s far too much pining (mostly the oblivious sort).
Notes: Thanks to misprinting for looking this over for me and telling me I wasn’t completely crazy for scrapping all my original ideas in favour of something utterly dumb.
