Hey everyone, I am here to announce the six fandoms we'll be covering in August Rush this year!




They are:


Being Human (US)
Guardians of the Galaxy
H50 (original or reboot)
Marvel Universe (any)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Supernatural




We had a large number of fandoms getting a similar number of votes (4 and 3), so in the end, the final decision is more about including everyone rather than the highest number of votes. However, the top four were clear winners, so most of the voters had a fandom or two in there; I chose the last two fandoms from some of the less popular fandoms simply because it included the other members who voted that would have otherwise missed out. Therefore, with the above fandoms, I believe everyone who voted will have at east ONE fandom to play in.

I'm changing things a little this year, simply because I'm not quite as organised as I was last year, and also because this August starts on a Tuesday. So we're having a slightly longer lead-up to things, and then we'll get started on Sunday the 6th August, running until Saturday 2 September. I'll post the rules a day or two ahead of getting underway, but if you want to know them before then, check back under the tag 'challenge: august rush' to see what happened last year!

Now, if I'm right, the people who offered to help pick out the graphics this year are agdhani and guineamania! If anyone else wants to help, please let me know in a comment here. If you have preferences over which fandoms you'd like to find the graphics for, let me know here too. We want 20 high res pics - preferably screenshots - for each fandom, and hopefully with either a bunch of different characters/scenes that you think will either produce good graphics or suggest some kind of story to people.

OH! One more thing - those who wanted H50, can you let me know if anyone wants the original, or if you're happy with the reboot? Also, for Marvel fans, does anyone have any preferences over which TV show/movie/s we should focus on?

And that's me for now. I hope you are as excited about this year's choices as I am! ;-)

Can I get you to do Guardians and Star Wars? I think I'll let Agdhani do Marvel, if that's cool with you.

Thanks for this! Can you gather your images this week and have them to me by Friday Morning your time? I think you have my email. Just link me to where you have them hosted (or Dropbox) if you don't want to email ;-)

For H50, I don't mind if it is the original or reboot

I'm not really familiar with Being Human or H50...
I'm happy to get images for anything, but I'd have no idea what I'm getting with those two, lol.

As for Marvel focus...there's so many now, can also get one or two images per entity...unless that's two broad for people. I'm big into the Netflix verse...but I hate leaving anyone out lol ;)

I so want to start watching this. I've watched a bit of the UK series and loved it. :D

Awesome choices this year!

And I'm cackling at the fact you're listening to Top Gear. BBCA was having a marathon last weekend.

Glad you think so! ;-)

My hubby was watching; I was only looking at it sporadically as I worked on the voting figures. We have the latest (I think) British series with Matt LeBlanc at the moment; he is surprisingly good on the show!

Also re Marvel, I am happy to do one or two for every Marvel thing I have the sources for (everything apart from later series of Agents of Shield and the newest films that aren't on Dvd yet)

Thanks again for your offer - you could always check with agdhani if she needs any of the films/shows you have. ;-)

And just so everyone knows now, I'll be getting the H50 pics. I haven't watched past S5 though, so I may be looking at that season for my inspiration!

The final assignments are:
Being Human (US) - Angelus
Guardians of the Galaxy - Guinea
H50 (reboot) - Haldoor
Marvel Universe (any) - Agdhani
Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Guinea
Supernatural - Agdhani

If you'd like me to grab you some H50 screen caps for S7, I can! Thankfully, they released it here on Netflix and I binged the heck out of it this weekend! Some good epis, some so-so, and a fair amount of McDanno. :)

Looks like a good mix of fandoms.

For Marvel, I'd like to see some Doctor Strange and Deadpool. Those two crack me up, and I already have ideas for pairing them up with Tony Stark.

It does seem to be!

Hopefully agdhani will see this and help you out with that! ;-)

I'd like to have the X-Men included (prefer cartoons, but I can deal with the movies), but if I remember correctly, the pictures that are posted can inspire creations in other fandoms as well?
