WOOHOO! Announcing 2017's August Rush fandoms!

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

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! ;-)
