Splashing around in the Leverage pool :D

I've been splashing around in the Leverage pool this month. Or more like dipping a toe :)

A little ficlet written for the weekend challenge. If you squint really hard you can see it's inspired by the Wizard of Oz quote/prompt given to me here.

Preparation for next month's challenge: August Rush!

OMG! It's almost time for August Rush again! Are you guys ready? If you are new to this challenge, we've run it twice before and it's a lot of fun. If you need to know how it works, check out this post from last year to read all the rules.

In 2013 the five fandoms were: Avengers, Hawaii 5-0, NCIS, Star Trek AOS and Supernatural. In 2014 we did six fandoms: Agents of SHIELD, Almost Human, Harry Potter, Sherlock BBC, Stargate (all 'verses) and Star Trek - TNG.

For 2015 I'd like to aim for another five or six different fandoms, but I need your input for that! This post is open for you guys to throw up suggestions of fandoms you'd like to see in the challenge this year. I'm screening the comments so there will be some element of surprise in it, but once I've collected all your answers, I'll put up a poll and you will get to vote. The top five/six fandoms from the poll will be the ones in the challenge, as long as I'm able to get some good high-def pics to use.

So, if you have links to any high-def pics (like screencaps, etc) for the fandoms you suggest, then now is also the time to let me know. And if anyone is interested in helping run the challenge or to create some rewards, please let me know that too.

1. All comments are screened - you don't have to take part to suggest fandoms, but it probably helps!
2. We won't be covering any of the fandoms from previous years again unless there's an overwhelming demand for one.
3. August Rush features visual prompts, but this does not mean you have to create graphics; we love words too, so whatever the pics inspire for you - we think any creations are great!
