Fandom Nominations for August's Reccing Challenge  
We're going to do something a little different for next month's reccing challenge—normally, as you know, we have a single, multifandom theme for the entire month. We're going to shake things up a bit in August and do FOUR fandom-specific reccing challenges, each lasting only a single week, as picked 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 to consolidate stuff into fandom categories that make sense and reflect what you're looking for, if needed.

2) You have until July 27th 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 4 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 what everybody nominates!

Welp that's one of mine down! I can probably find another Tom Hardy fandom to nominate though ;)

It's a tough job, but I figured somebody had to do it. :D

Granted I've probably read ALL OF THEM so far. Or at least all that AO3 has, but I guess that just means I'll have to rec if it gets picked lol

Heck, rec it even if it doesn't. If there's good stuff, we need to know about it!

Good point - I'll have to check and see if it's been recced yet. There's a modern AU with sequel that's FANTASTIC.

Gave in and posted it already. Because reasons.

I was also planning on nominating Mad Max. I feel safe to declare right now that ONE of the four weeks of August is going to be Fury Road.

Ha! Teen Wolf was the OTHER fandom I was going to rec. Great minds think alike!

*high five* I'll admit I'm a Derek/Stiles shipper, but I heart het fic, too and there's just SO MUCH to wade through if you're trying to find any of it. Derek-het in particular actually.

I'm nominating:

Xmen Days of Future Past
blithersblithers on July 26th, 2015 06:03 pm (UTC)
Hey, just curious - do you want your nominated fandom to be X-Men in general or specifically that movie?
jaq_of_spadesjaq_of_spades on July 26th, 2015 09:53 pm (UTC)
I did originally think specifically DOFP since I haven't read much fic set in that verse, but on reflection a wider Xmen nomination would probably get you more recs, which is the name of the game. So, Xmen Movieverse, or all Xmen is fine too.
blithersblithers on July 28th, 2015 01:35 am (UTC)
X-Men it is, then. :) If X-Men does end up as one of the fandoms for August, though, I'll put a special note in the challenge for any fic for this movie!
Celtic Flicka: castle - OUaTceltic_flicka on July 23rd, 2015 07:20 pm (UTC)
I'm nominating Pitch Perfect and Arrow.
