August Rush prep!

So, how's your pool party going? I know I have some work to do, but I'm confident of getting on to it and finished by the end of the month (ulp...). Right, the power of positive thinking!

And on that note, we need to get into gear for next month's challenge! Who's up for August Rush? Remember last year? It was fantabulous and we all had a great time! Incidentally, if you didn't get your banner last year and you'd like one, let me know - I was remiss in following those up and for that I can only apologise.

So, anyway, check out the link above if you've never joined in or have forgotten how August Rush works; it's got the fandoms from last year and the rules, so you'll get a general idea of what happens. The 20 dates will change this year, as we run it Monday to Friday with catch-ups on the weekend, but otherwise, it's a good indication of how it goes.

Anyway, what I need from you guys - all members who'd be interested in playing - is suggestions of fandoms for this year! We'd like to see some different fandoms from previous years (as in the link above, plus the following: 2013: Avengers, Hawaii 5-0 (2010), NCIS (orig), Star Trek (AOS/TOS), Supernatural, 2014: Agents of SHIELD, Almost Human, Harry Potter (all), Sherlock (BBC), Star Trek (TNG), Stargate (All)), but if you're really into something in the 'already done' list, it's okay to pop it in your suggestion comment here. If we get enough votes for it, we'll look at covering it again, but I can't make any promises! I do try and cater for everyone who votes in the most popular choices, but as you can understand it can be difficult, as it's a lot of work to get things ready and I have to limit the final choices to 5 or 6 of the most popular fandoms.

So, suggest away - try to keep your suggestions to around 5 or 6 (or less!) that you would happily play in - the comments will be screened and this post will be open until Sunday night PST for you to add comments to. After I collate all the suggestions, I will run a voting post ASAP next week for you to tick your favourite choices, and from there make a decision on the final 5-6.

Oh, and if anyone can help out either with sourcing high def screen-caps/pics and/or would like to help during the month with posting, let me know in your comment! C'mon, it'll be fun!
