The Original Fiction Big Bang was created in early 2010 to give original fiction writers and artists a chance to enjoy the Big Bang experience.[1]

The challenge does not exclude any genre of story beyond things that are explicitly FPF or RPF fanfiction, but the format mirrors fannish big bangs. The FAQ states:
Anything goes, as long as it's original fiction. This doesn't mean you break out your epic Mary Sue HP fic. It was to be original characters in an original world. We're fairly flexible with how much inspiration you can take from existing worlds, but it has to be recognizably yours. This also means no RPF, and no other fandom-related stuff.

So while your epic Mary Sue HP fic might be out, your massively self-indulgent Mary Sue fic where she saves the galaxy from squid monsters from space is all right by us.[2]

Posting of stories and art began on October 1, 2010. The length requirement was 10,000 words and stories had accompanying art, broadly defined to include drawings, fanmixes, icons, manips, digital art, vids, etc.
