THIS IS FANTASTIC! You guys are all FANTASTIC!
Thank you so much for playing! ;-)


Please let me know if I've counted anything wrong, missed you (God forbid!), or got any of your fandoms listed incorrectly; it's late and I am tired, but I THINK I got everything ! *crosses fingers*



A few people offered to help with banners, so if they could just comment again here or PM me, and let me know how many you can do, and if there are any people you particularly want to make the rewards for, that would be awesome!

As for the participants - if you have only one fandom, obviously your reward will reflect that, but if you have created in multiple fandoms (as many of you have!), please let us know if you have a favourite fandom to put on your reward, or if you want a combination, or indeed, ALL of your fandoms featured. Thanks! ;-)

Congratulations to everyone!

And thank you so much, haldoor and severina, for hosting this event so tirelessly everyday, and then doing all the round-up and counting!

I would be very delighted with a LotR/Hobbit landscape/city wide-shot banner <3

I would be fine with either or both but would probably prefer something from the Captain America fandom

WOW we really nailed this :D thanks for facilitating my entry into the graphic-making world of LJ too!!!

(for my banner, any/all of the fandoms would be fine, maybe something with ladies from each? idk banners are just cool xx)

Yay for everyone!!! This is such a fun challenge :) I would love a banner to put in my profile, either LOTR/The Hobbit or that and Cap as well. Thank you!!
haldoor
Sep. 5th, 2015 07:33 am (UTC)
Agreed! I love doing it!

I think we can manage that! ;-)

That was a lot of fun!! Congrats to everyone!

I'd like The Hobbit or Once Upon A Time please


If you need specific characters: Thorin Oakenshielf from The Hobbit, Rumple|Mr. Gold (Rumple/Belle) from Once Upon A Time or if the banner maker wants to do Buffy the Vampire Slayer then Angel/Buffy
