2018 BB

Welcome to the 2019 Pros BB Ideas post!

Where do ideas come from? That's an excellent question. With permission, we've borrowed a post from the 2011 Big Bang mod sineala where she answers that very question:

"Self," you may be saying to yourself, "The Big Bang looks incredibly fun, and I wish I could sign up for it. But I cannot, because I have no ideas! I wouldn't want to sign up without any idea of what to write!"

Never fear! We are here to help. (It is, of course, perfectly licit to sign up as a writer without having an idea, should you be that daring. But you may not be, hence this post.)

Here, in a vaguely-ordered list, are some ways to help you come up with ideas:

...so, how do YOU come up with ideas? Any methods to share? How have you found the ideas for your stories?
Do you have some ideas to share? If you have a story prompt you’re dying to share, now's the time to air it. You can give as much, or as little, detail as you like, and all genres and pairings are welcome.

Maybe you don't have a story prompt. Maybe you just have a thought, wish, or craving you'd like to share, in which case, please post that as a comment. We'd love to hear your thoughts on what you'd like to see immortalised in Pros BB fic, vid and art this year! And you never know, you might just inspire one of our BB writers!

BB writers, feel free to take inspiration from any of the suggestions in the comments. If any particular idea takes your fancy, grab it and run! Sign ups open until March 1st. C'mon - you know you want to!

Thanks to sineala!
