The idea here is to organize a gift exchange designed for Marvel and its many branched runs, authors, related and unrelated fandoms. The idea is to include the X-Men side and the Avengers side and every other side that non-Marvel fans don't realize is Marvel. The idea is to include any timeline you want, any world you want, any character you want, so long as it's Marvel.

Bingo check-in!

I know I have been very remiss and have not checked in at all so far to see how all you Bingoers are doing, but here I am at last! I have not been playing Bingo this time around, but I am working my way through banner rewards for August Rush, which means I should be able to post them very soon!
