August Rush: Day One & Rules!

Hello, everyone and welcome to AUGUST RUSH 2018! Who's ready to create with us?

1. The challenge will run for 20 days Monday to Friday each week from 6-10, 13-17, 20-24 and 27-31 August, with the Sat-Sun of each week as 'catch-up' days.
2. Every day of the challenge a graphic from each of the five fandoms will be provided in a single post for the day.
3. For each day's graphic in your chosen fandom/s, you will be asked to create at least either a drabble or 2 icons.
4. Should you wish, you can collect up your week's chosen graphics and from all of them create a 500+ word fic, ten icons, or a banner/wallpaper.
- OR you can wait and write a 2K+ fic from all of them; or create 40 icons; or 5 banners/wallpapers (for the whole month's chosen graphics in each/any fandom).
- OR create any combination of the daily minimum that makes up the total numbers, eg: 1 banner, 10 icons, 5 drabbles and one 500 word fic = 20 days worth; or 20 icons and a 1K fic = 20 days worth; or any other combo like this.
5. If you want to choose a different fandom for each day, each week, or any other combination that works for you (i.e. any number of the fandoms that you want!), that's up to you - any combinations work to make up the full 20 creations that count as completion.
6. Make for as many or as few fandoms as you like - just be sure to make the minimum creation for each day if you want to complete the whole challenge.
7. If you miss any days, you can make them up at any stage. Sat-Sun of each week will not have new pics, so you can use them to catch up on anything you've already started or to create for days you've missed.
8. Everyone who makes the minimum creation for each of the 20 days gets a completion banner, whether it's for one fandom, a mix or all six!
9. You don't have to reach the minimum on all 20 days to earn a reward; as long as you create something for at least one day, you can earn a participation banner.
10. Post in your journal or wherever you normally do, and please link your creation/s for each day back to that day's August Rush post rather than in a separate post of your own in the comm. (This makes it easier to collect up the creations)

If we get time, either hiddlepinebatch or I will do a round-up of what everyone’s created once a week, but I won’t promise this at this stage in case life gets busy! But we will do a round-up at the end, and anything that is missed in the daily posts can be linked there.

Now we've got the formalities done, let’s get Day One going properly!

You should also be able to click on the pics to get the original size version loaded here in LJ, but I have also given you a link to where Hiddle has stored these in Photobucket. I hope the versions there are large enough for any of you graphics makers to use, but I'm having trouble checking this at the moment, so let us know if you have any issues with the sizes you're finding here, and we'll sort something out!

Great start for the Rush! ;-)

first. I think I might have underestimated the number of graphics I'd do this month. Or maybe not. It depends on how I feel about the individual pictures each day.

second. Today I did 2 graphics for each fandom.

Title: The Anne Rice Exemption
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Characters: Cordelia Chase/Willow Rosenberg/Xander Harris
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 157
Summary: Cordelia's thoughts as she encounters Xander and Willow in the Wishverse


She didn’t want this, couldn’t want this.

And yet…

Xander wanted her again.

He isn’t Xander, her traitorous mind said.

She had no way to get out of it. And then there was Willow, leather-clad, vampy Willow.

When did she get so hot? Did making a vampire make you sexier? The wrinkles were a definite tradeoff, but I wouldn’t be wrinkly all the time, just when I transformed, and there were always acting jobs for hot teenage girls. And, oh god, Willow, right there just like that. Am I gay? Xander’s here too. This feels so nice. Does this make me bisexual? I think there’s a rule that exempts vampires from the whole gay-straight thing like in those Anne Rice books. I have never thought about Willow this way before. I can kind of see what Xander saw in her. And I can share, I can share, I can…

The world went blood red and then black.
