TS Blair Salt

That's all folks!

Well, almost. There's one final part to this year's big bang and that's our master list so you can catch up on anything you've missed. This can be found below.

I want to say a huge thank you on behalf of Patt and myself to everyone who has taken part this year. We have some wonderful and wonderfully unusual stories this year.

Hotel Cascadia - Unbelievable2 and PattRose

Cutting a Swath

Story by Franscats

Summary: When Jim's senses come on line, William sends Jim to live in an isolated area because he doesn't want people to know an Ellison could be a "freak." Eventually, Jim loses all contact with his father and brother. Jim becomes a soldier and then a cop while his brother, Steven, becomes a gambler and blackmailer. When Steven tries to blackmail Dr. Blair Sandburg, William convinces Blair not to press charges with the promise that he will supervise Steven. Additionally, he compensates Blair by giving him information about a man with exceptional senses.

Warnings: Violence

Sanburg and Machine, PattRose and unbelievable2

Sandburg and Machine

Story by PattRose
Art by unbelievable2

Summary: Cyber beings are not too sophisticated until Detective Jim Ellison, a prototype for a new AI robot, comes along, and he's being field-tested as the partner for Detective Blair Sandburg, who dislikes robots, but comes to like Jim. Banks and Sandburg are the only two that know about Jim being a robot in the beginning, but it’s harder than you would think to keep the secret. It’s also very hard to keep track of the players without a program.

Warnings: Angst, violence, bad language.

Crossing Orbits - Laurie and Virginia Sky

Crossing Orbits

Story by Laurie
Art by Virginia Sky

Summary: Jimajamesell, First Heir to House Ellison meets B'lair of the Travelers while both are incarcerated on a planet far from their respective homes.

A Worthwhile Partnership

Story by Katef

Summary: In a world where sentinels and guides are known, a very different Jim and Blair are thrown together, and must fight against the odds to create a worthwhile partnership despite their apparent incompatibility.

Warnings: Violence (artwork)

The Dreamer - PattRose and Mella68

The Dreamer

Story by PattRose

Summary: Blair Sandburg can dream things that other people could never do. He sees things that will help the police in some way. He also dreams of a policeman named Jim that needs his help. It’s up to Blair to be able to find him and help.

Warnings: Angst, violence, bad language, child abuse discussed

Salvation - Yenta49 and Morgan Briarwood

Salvation

Story by Yenta49
Art by Morgan Briarwood

Summary: It was the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind. The universe was in upheaval; the Earth Alliance was headed rapidly toward civil war, the Centauri Republic was laying siege to the Narn worlds, and an ancient evil was rising, a war between light and darkness beneath it all. And, in the Year of the Shadow War, for two men it would also mean a new beginning and a new way of life – whether they wanted it or not.

Warnings: None

The Road to Hell - Bluewolf and alynt

The Road To Hell

Story by Bluewolf
Art by alynt

Hearth and Home - Xanateria and AnnieB

Hearth and Home

Story by Xanateria
Art by AnnieB

Summary:

Jim and Blair's relationship started under rather extraordinary circumstances but they deal with the same problems everyone faces. How do they find time to be together and learn to open up to each other? And then there's the not so typical problems. What do you do when being together starts to mean you can't be apart - literally? And how do their roles of Sentinel and Guide reconcile with their modern life? The answers are definitely not close to home and will mean facing the most painful pieces of their past.

Warnings: None

Background Love - Mab and Debbie Stone

Background Love

Story by Mab
Art by Debbie Stone

Summary: A slashy retelling of first season and Flight. Blair and Jim meet five years before the series starts, in a one night stand in Seattle. When they meet again as in canon, Jim is soon aware of the possibilities that stand in the background behind the sentinel study.

TS Blair Salt
Now the 2014 Big Bang has concluded, we've got one last thing to do before Patt and I retire for a break.

This final task is planning for next year's challenge. It's a special one, because we're also into advance planning for 2016, which as you probably know is our beloved show's 20th anniversary. A lot of fans are planning to make 2016 a very special year, and we'd like our big bang to be a part of that.

TS Blair Salt
The server for the Big Bang website is being upgraded over this weekend. I don't know exactly when it will happen, but it's likely the site will go offline while my hosting company does the work. I'm told it shouldn't be any more than two hours.

So if you try to read any of our stories this weekend and can't get to the site, just try again later. It should be fine.
