ONLY: Hi Fandom! OnlyMoreLove here, your interim forecaster back to tell you all about what goes on, challenge-wise in a marvel fandom near you in our event forecast!
A little note before I start with the current events: you’ll be able to find everything I mention in this forecast linked and explained in the show notes of each episode over on https://podonthesuit.com!
Alright, so now for the numerous fun events that are happening!
We told you the Cap-IM community had another surprise event for us last forecast and it was announced! The Fanworks Like It’s 2012! Prompt Fest is underway! Prompting is open and will stay so until the end of the fest on July 13 with initial prompt reveals happening tomorrow! There no minimum requirements, any medium you can think of is allowed and, contrary to the general events guidelines of the comm, fills made for the fest are eligible for cross-posting with the stony bingo!
The community has also issued a call for event mods to help with the upcoming Big Bang and the return of the Tiny Reverse Bang! More info on what that entails and how to offer your help in the post linked in the show notes! Cap-IM brings us a lot and Marie and I (Only) have been helping on various events recently. Yes, it’s work but it’s also a lot of fun and a different way to contribute to our community so if that sounds like something you’d like to do, definitely give it a try.
Are you a warrior of the fluff? A monster hoarder of the angst? A double agent who’ll lean to either side whenever the wind allows? An epic battle is coming to you June 9 to August 9 stony friends! Time to choose a side, or not, for the first annual SteveTony Games, this year it’s Angst vs Fluff! A bingo card will be issued featuring prompts from both sides of the spectrum, and both teams will launch themselves into a merciless battle for their side to win the maximum number of points!
