Pool Party

More Pool Party!

Well hello there!

Are you going strong with your pool party assignments? Do you still need some inspiration?

Well take a look at what your friends have listed for fandoms for you to consider at these posts and think about a trope. That’s right, think about taking a dip in a trope pool. The water is very refreshing!

I stole a list of tropes from a sight and completely forgot to note where I got it to credit them (so if you recognize it I will happily credit). The trope to swim in today is Body Swap. So put on your trope-ical swimsuit and dive in!

Numbers Challenge

The rules are:


1. Each post is either a hundred words or more/ or you can make a graphic/art

2. However the number influences you, go with the flow! I don’t care how you use or abuse the number! (I’ll give some suggestions/ideas/other languages to help you along if you get stuck!)

3. Post anywhere – tumblr, amazon.com, your journal, AO3, the dreaded ff.net, your bedroom wall, etc.

4. There is NO time limit.





And the number shall be ...173!

Daily Count Challenge - August!

YOU ARE ALL DOING SWIMMINGLY!!!

Are you ready to be counted in August?


Comment here and I'll put you on the list! It's as simple as stepping up when your name is called and doing your utmost to meet your own daily word count (whatever that may be). When you finish, write a small bragging post and call up the next contestant!

Be accountable for one day!

Who wants in?
Big buddy

Big Buddy August!

Comment here with the count you can reach in the month (remember to factor in holidays, finals, road trips, pajama days, hangovers, etc). I will check in with you every 6(ish) days to make sure you are on schedule, to push you if you aren't, and to shake pompoms at you if you are (Well, I'll probably shake pompoms at you either way).

Your count is up to you. There is no minimum beyond what you decide. But Big Buddy will be watching you! If you pledge 100 words/images, then every Monday chime in to tell us that you are up to snuff.

This is not words to be done in lieu of something else. If you have a bingo, or a big bang, or a drabble-a-day, it all counts! Words/images do not have to be posted to count, they just have to be done!

August Rush Fandoms!

Hello hello everyone! The poll results for the top five fandoms for August Rush are in!

We have....
1. Marvel Cinematic Universe!
2. Disney/Once Upon a Time
3. Supergirl
4. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
5. Game of Thrones

Woohoo!

August Rush usually runs 4 weeks, so the official start date will be Monday August 6th, but I’ll get everyone excited the 1st through 3rd :)

In the mean time, haldoorand I will be busy gathering screencaps.

Would anyone would be willing to gather and send me 20 screencaps each for Buffy and Supergirl? We have the other three fandoms covered, but would like some assistance in those two fandoms. If you can help out, comment here! And I’ll send you my email to receive them.

Thanks everyone! It’s gonna be an awesome August!!!
