Summary: Life hasn't been the same since the Rift.
     Frank hadn't been planning on getting stuck in this stupid town, kept captive in the sketchiest bar in the universe, chained to the counter like an animal.
     And just when he'd been sure nothing could surprise him anymore, he was rescued by a rock 'n' roll band of vampires.
     He hadn't seen that one coming.
Notes: Beta by the lovely Andeincascade and Shinetheway. Title from Tomorrow's Money by My Chemical Romance. Much thanks toxojemmaxo for absolutely stunning art, and thanks to the mods for running a neat challenge.

author:ilikebands
artist: Ninja-Anonymous 
(please leave any art-related comments on this fic & art masterpost)
summary:
"Maybe it was a bit ridiculous that Frank was curled up in a ball in the bathtub, since the bathroom was the closest place he could run to. Maybe it was pathetic that he was hiding from the person he used to feel safe with. He didn't want to be scared, but he was."

Halloween: Posting Fics & Pics

The 31st is here: now, participants can now begin submitting their creations to the Frerard (Mini) Fang!Bang mods to be posted. Here’s the plan:

.

For Authors:

      Send a link to the post of your completed, beta'd fic either via a message to the mods, or in the screened comments below. Your fic may be posted on Livejournal, Dreamwidth, InsaneJournal, JournalFen, ArchiveOfOurOwn / AO3, etc., so long as the link is not to an f-locked post. If you ever choose to take down / friendslock the link provided, please notify a mod first so that they can make note of it. 

      If you wish for the fic to be hosted here, please indicate that preference in your post. Such entries will be posted not as a link, but as an LJ-cut. Please note: Anon entries will be posted in this manner, and will be hosted on this journal unless specifically otherwise requested. 
      With  your entries, please include a summary, (if it has been revised since your initial summary statement), as well as a list of potential warnings for sensitive readers. If you feel that any of the warnings would be considered spoilers, please mark them as such so that they can be separated from other warnings under one of Livejournal's handy-dandy spoiler tags.

.

For Artists:

      Send a link to the post of your completed graphics/fanmix works via a message to the mods, or in the screened comments below. Your work may be in a Livejournal post, Photobucket album, Twitpic, Imgur, AO3, etc., so long as the link is not to an f-locked/password protected post, or to a server with a low maximum limit of viewers. If you ever choose to take down / friendslock the link provided, please notify a mod first so that they can make note of it. 
      If you wish for your work to be hosted here, please indicate that preference in your post. Such entries will be posted not as a link, but as an LJ-cut. Please note: Anon entries will be posted in this manner, and will be hosted on this journal unless specifically otherwise requested. 
      With  your entries, please include a list of potential warnings for sensitive viewers/listeners. If you feel that any of the warnings would be considered spoilers, please mark them as such so that they can be separated from other warnings under one of Livejournal's handy-dandy spoiler tags. If your image itself is a spoiler, do not forget to mark it as such. 

.

For Everyone:

      Don't panic.

      I've spoken with several of you who have mentioned being unable to complete the prompt before this deadline, be it for reasons of illness, Hurricane Sandy, or evil exams approaching. This challenge is meant to be fun, and is not something to make yourself ill over. Don't feel that you need to miss Halloween just to get those last hundred words in. Just submit your work to me as soon as you've finished, and I'll put it up then.
      The current plan involves posting one fic (and its accompanying art) per day, finishing with a master-post with summaries once each of the fics has been posted in their completion. I will likely be posting in the order that I receive the completed pieces. If no one is able to submit a completed set of fic and art by the original deadline, then the fault lies with my planning and potentially overambitious deadlines. Your work will still be posted when received; there are no penalties for lateness. Should I ever host a similar challenge in the future, I will be sure to allow for a more reasonable time period in which the participants can complete their works; you all have my apologies.
      If a writer is finished while the artist is not, please discuss with one another whether you wish to post the fic alone (and have the art added in later) or wait to post the two together in their entirety at a later date. Additionally, if a writer/artist pair decides that the illustrations/mix go best when presented with the illustrations in-line with the text of the story, feel free to work that out together. The warnings for the fic and the graphics/mix will simply be combined in one post, and the link will be to the combination.
      Finally, if at any point an author or artist wishes afterwards to edit a post that they chose to have hosted here, they have only to drop an LJ message at this account, and it will be changed as soon as possible.

Artist Sign-Up Post

In the comments, please enter your artistic preferences, specialties, and restrictions. Feel free to post examples, but don't stretch the page, and if an image is not work-safe, please instead post it as a link with a warning. You may enter anonymously, but please include a pen-name.

As with the writers' signup post, the deadline here is the 15th - we want to be able to pair people off as soon as we can so that everyone has enough time to work in.

Writer Sign-Up Post

In the comments, please enter a summary / blurb / teaser for your story. If you wish to be an anonymous writer, feel free to enter anonymously -- just note your desired pen-name. Want to enter more than once? Be sure to include titles (you can change them later -- but it will make it easier for us to specify when assigning a particular story to an artist).

You may enter your summaries any time from now to the 15th, but please don't enter much later - you want to give the artists enough time to be finished before the final post! 

After being assigned an artist, if you'd like them to illustrate a scene that you'd consider a spoiler, a method can be arranged so that you may speak with them one-on-one.

Current Entrants / Participants & Their Summaries / Descriptions

      "Post-apocalyptic vampire world (think the Desolation Row video) with Gee as the singer of a vampire band and Frank the human who needs protection."
    Anon: DeaFuture: here
      "GATTACA style future semi-dystopia, where children are generally created from selected genetic material. People are engineered to be difficult to turn, and given drugs to keep them from being palatable. Frank was born naturally, and as a result has trouble with the drugs, which actually make him ill -- and when he manages to avoid being dosed, discovers music -- something people don't pay as much attention to anymore. Gerard can scent him out, as someone who smells actually edible, and the rest is history."

      "A favor for his new friend Mikey leads Frank to an abandoned building in North Jersey...where Mikey's dark secret is hiding. A horror/suspense story with haunted house imagery."
    zory22: here
      "Frank Iero, half-werewolf/half vampire loves his job. He's a computer analyst for Ravencroft, the police for the supernatural. He never has to leave his office, he'd rather find the bad guy/ghoul from the comfort of his rolling chair and laptop, but his boss, Bob Bryar has a different idea this time. He needs someone to travel with the Way team to Belleville New Jersey to take of care of someone harvesting the souls of humans. A Criminal Minds type AU with Mikey and Gerard as Vampires, Frank the halfling who's afraid of his vampire half, and Ray, the group's warlock."
