Welcome to the DCBB wiki

The Dean/Cas Big Bang is an annual fanfiction and art challenge about - you guessed it - Dean and Castiel from Supernatural. Authors have the summer to write a fic at least 20,000 words in length. In August, they are matched with artists through an anonymous process we call Art Claims, and those artists are tasked with creating at least two illustrations based on the fic they claimed. Authors and artists post in teams beginning in October.

This wiki contains everything you want to know (and probably some things you don't) about the Dean/Cas Big Bang, including info and rules for the 2019 round, the challenge schedule, and how to register for the DCBB. This wiki is a work in progress, and we will continue to add to it in order to include information on each of our past rounds.
