About The Pinn & Kinn Big Bang

The Pinn & Kinn Big Bang is an annual writing challenge focusing on two relationship pairings of characters from the television show Glee: Puck/Finn and Kurt/Finn. Authors will complete stories of 10,000 words or more over the course of three months, and these stories are paired with artwork in a variety of media created by artists who claim the stories based on summaries.

Final stories will be posted over one to two weeks (depending on the number of works). At the end of the bang, all story links will be compiled into a masterpost. At that point, authors and artists will be free to share their works elsewhere.

What is the Pinn & Kinn Big Bang?

A big bang is a writing and art challenge pairing authors and artists to complete a long work of fiction within a specified time priod. The Pinn & Kinn Big Bang is centered around the romantic pairings of Noah Puckerman and Finn Hudson or Kurt Hummel and Finn Hudson, with a minimum word count requirement of 10,000, completed over three months.

Some of the policies/rules have changed for this year's P&KBB, so please take a moment to acquaint yourself with the updates.

The purpose of a warning on a fic is to let the readers know what they are getting before they click on the link/cut tag. Some subject matter is very triggering for certain readers, while other subject matter simply falls outside the purview of the types of stories that readers enjoy and feel comfortable reading.

The following must be included in the warnings if they are present in your fic: child abuse (physical, emotional, or sexual); domestic abuse/violence; incest; non-con/dub-con, including statutory; sex involving characters below the age of consent; graphic violence; suicide/suicidal ideation/self-harm; and major character death (whether or not that death is canonical). If your fic contains these situations and you do not warn for them, you’ll be given an opportunity to update your header, after which time your fic will be deleted.

We strongly suggest you include warnings for the following: Minor character death (whether or not that death is canonical); kinks (BDSM, slave, bloodplay, breathplay, scat, etc. — if it’s something you’d prompt on the kink meme, consider warning for it); mpreg; underage drug/alcohol use; substance abuse of any nature; and mental health issues.

It is never necessary to warn for top/bottom/switch/versatile characters in any gleekmods-run big bang, regardless of the character or the fandom’s tropes or biases about that character. It is also not necessary to warn for sexual content, regardless of of the characters' sexes and/or genders; the explicitness of sexual content should be taken into account when rating the fic.

Thank you all for your cooperation and for keeping the pinnkinnbigbang a safe space for readers!
Whether you already have an idea for your Pinn & Kinn Big Bang and just need a nudge or want to write but haven't yet found the right story, here is a post for sharing and generating ideas, offering suggestions to help your fellow writers, and to band together to get our creative juices flowing.

If you need help or support, would like someone to help talk you through an idea or an outline, or just want to connect with other potential P&KBB writers, please feel free to comment to this post at any time. It will be open throughout the bang.

This post is not being moderated or regularly checked by the P&KBB mods, so if you have a question, concern, etc., remember to contact us at the mod contact post!

If Fuckurt is not included in the allowed ships for the 2014 Pinn & Kinn Bang, would you still participate?

Yes, I was already planning to write Pinn or Kinn
Yes, though I would write Fuckurt if it were an option
No, I only want to participate if I can write Fuckurt
No, I wasn't planning to participate this year

Comments on this post are screened if you would like to give longer answers, have any questions, etc.

Title: Hookup, Line, and Sinker
Author(s): watchforwalkers & coincidental_penalties
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Fluff/Romance
Warnings: none
Spoilers: Through season 4
Word Count: 50512
Summary: Finn and Kurt make a pact to keep each other from hooking up with their exes during Will and Emma's (failed) wedding. Of course, the pact didn't specify hooking up with each other instead, but why question a good thing when it happens? Sure, most hookups aren’t planned weeks in advance. Most hookups don’t last an entire spring break or three months of summer, either, but a hookup’s just a hookup, right?

When he realizes he needs to get out of Lima, he goes the first place he can think of, to Kurt and Puck in LA. When Adam moved to London and Puck got a big opportunity in LA, Kurt chose LA. Now he's searching for someone to fill the Adam-shaped hole in their lives to stabilize his relationship with Puck, but Puck isn't making it easy on him. After all, Puck doesn't understand why Kurt has been so obsessed with finding someone to marry. Will Finn's renewed presence in their lives fix everything, or just make it worse?

Rating: NC 17
Genres: Romance, AR with some canon elements
Warnings: non-con elements, motor vehicle accident, various health issues, underage alcohol use, language, discussion of prior non-con event, non-con elements, critical injury
Spoilers: through s4
Summary: When Finn and Kurt each set off in separate directions after high school they both come to realize just how important they are to each other- as family. With both of their high school romances now firmly in the past, Finn and Kurt rely on the comfort of being brothers. When a sudden illness rocks their family to it’s core, the brothers become even closer. Kurt worries he is clinging to Finn too desperately, too intimately and doesn’t want to go back down that route of unrequited feelings for Finn, so Kurt tries to ignores them; tries to push Finn away. Meanwhile, Finn makes a new friend and encounters someone from his past which makes him realize the love he’s been looking for was always there. Finn attempts to make sense of this realization and his feelings only to be kept at a distance from the person he’s always needed the most. An illness, a car crash, and a proposal all
conspire to put Kurt and Finn on a rocky road as they move from being brothers and friends to something more.
