The HashiMada BigBang is a 9-week long challenge for fans of the Naruto ship Hashirama x Madara that runs from Hashirama’s birthday (October 23) to Madara’s birthday (December 24th) annually. The event is an open big bang, so it doesn't follow typical the big bang structure of matching up long fics with authors. Rather, there are two prompts for each of the nine weeks of the challenge and participants create fanworks and submit them for that week, as one would do daily for a fanweek.
The first itteration of the event was announced on the tumblr on September 2nd, 2017. This event is unrelated to the HashiMada MiniBang The event primarily takes place on tumblr but in 2018 expanded to twitter as well.
