Normally, as you know, we have a single, multifandom theme for the entire month. But in the coming month, we're going to do FOUR fandom-specific reccing challenges, each lasting only a single week, as chosen by the community! Have a fandom you've been dying to read more fic in, or one you'd love to share recs with the community for? Now's your chance!
Here's how it will work:
1) Everybody can nominate up to 2 fandoms. These are not ship- or pairing-specific but rather a nomination of a whole fandom. We know some fandoms have both bigger and more granular levels (i.e. should you nominate the Avengers or Captain America?)—nominate whatever you like, and we'll work with everybody as needed to consolidate stuff into fandom categories that make sense and reflect what you're looking for.
2) You have until July 27 to get your nominations in. We'll pull all the nominations into a poll that will go up on July 28th, where everybody will get 3 votes for the fandoms of their choice.
3) Then, at the end of the month, the top four fandoms with the most votes will be our challenge fandoms in August. Each challenge will last for one week in August, and it'll be right on to the next fandom once the week is up.
You can nominate fandoms by commenting on this post on LJ, replying to or reblogging this post on tumblr, or sending your suggestions directly to the tumblr ask box.
Can't wait to see the nominations!
