August Rush: Collective Creations - Week Three

You guys are doing FANTASTICALLY! I haven't counted up how we're doing on numbers so far this time around, but going by all the comments and posts, there's plenty of 'em! I can't believe we only have one more week left. Don't worry though; anything you can manage in any fandom qualifies for a participation banner, and of course, adds to our annual count! You still have time to catch up, or just to add in a few things here and there, depending on the time you have available.

If your creations are linked somewhere, but don't feature under the cut, or I have anything wrong, let me know. And if you want to add anything that hasn't already been linked from Days 11 to 15 for the count, do so here in a comment. Otherwise, there will be complete month round-up at the end of August that you can link to.

severina will be your host again for Week Four; I know she's got it all ready to go! Have fun in this last week, and remember you still have next weekend, and a bonus extra day next Monday to finish everything off and link it.

I'll be back with the month's complete round-up post on Monday or Tuesday next week, and then we'll start talking about rewards! Good luck for the last few days, everyone! I know I have some catching up to do myself! ;-)
