Events Forecast – August 16, 2020

Marvel Events Central 

Here comes the fun of our last 2 weeks of actual summer folks!

The Tiny Reverse Bang is still going strong and will be so until September 5! Reminder that the last week, Aug 29 to Sept 5 is meant to be a dedicated Amnesty Week during which you may post any remaining works you started at any point and for any prompt of this year’s TRB! Show us the nice things you made!

The creating phase of the SteveTony Games is officially over, with mod Cat hard at work to check the points of the whooping 698 fills that were made by the teams. What this means it’s now time to comment bingo like never before! A little correction of the rules we stated last time as Marie butchered them (she wrote this so I’m allowed to say it, don’t worry): One point will be awarded per row of comments on a work created by your team of choice when you submit your links, and an added 25-points bonus will be awarded to your team every 25 bingos! Have fun reading, listening to or oggling the beautiful works of this year’s round!

Round 2 of this year’s Cap-IM bingo is officially on-going! Go grab a card now or at any point until January 31st to participate! 

The August Tony Stark Flash Bingo is still going, so go grab one of the pretty cards if you want to participate in the fun, and keep an eye out for the September Flash cards that should be released around August 25 as well! For both months the mods will be releasing a series of 9 cards containing five prompts each. You can choose to fill any square on the board of your choice but are asked to please complete a board before you pick another one. Additional info and schedule as well as minimum requirements (lowered from those of the main bingo) can be found on the blog. Spoiler alert: there’s badges for the flash bingo too!!

August 23 to August 29 is the set week for this year’s Stony Week! Prompts are already out on their tumblr blog so go brainstorm! There are no minimum requirements and all media is accepted. 

Also keep an eye out for the opening of the MARVELously Knotty Bang sign-ups which should  open on August 22 and go on until October 10 for writers and November 14 for artists. Who’s excited for an Omegaverse bang?

Stocking stuffing is on-going for Flerret’s Stuckony Summer Stockings! You have until September 25th to gift people little stuckony gifts corresponding to any element they put in their sign-up. The guidelines are very simple: try to keep to a maximum of 1000 words for fics, or matching effort level for other media so the love gets spread between all 43 of the stockings! Creators are anonymous until the end of the event, so hush hush! For any additional questions you may have, have a look at Flerret’s Guide To Filling A Stocking on tumblr!

Sign-ups for the Stucky Bingo are open for 2 more weeks as they should close on August 31. The round itself will go on until May 31st 2021 with masterposts expected June 6 2021, so if you happen to love two supersoldiers together, follow our link to the blog!

Another ship week we mentioned before is incoming! The Sinful Spider Week to ship spidey with either or all of the following: Tony, Bucky, Steve, Deadpool, Quentin Beck, Thor or Loki and more as long as your ship remains within the spirit of the event, aka problematic 😉 The week will happen between August 23 and 29 and the prompts can be found on their blog!

Do you ship Darcy and Tony or Darcy and Steve or all three of them? Do you like Soulmates? Because Soultember is back for another round guys! Go check out the prompt of this themed month on their blog! 

Frostiron? Frostshield? Frostironshield? Thunderiron? Thundershield? Thunderironshield? If any of these are your jam, go check out the Loki bingo or the Thor bingo that have both opened signups last week! Check out all additional info on their respective blogs for Asgardian goodness!

The Sun and Storm in Every Blossoming: Comment Fest for Black MCU Characters on Dreamwidth, the Cap-IM comment bingo, Cap-IM kink meme and Lights on Park Avenue, as well as the StarkerFestivals’ Starker Summer Bingo are still open for participants’ sign-ups and/or contributions and the links to all these are still in our show notes of the past episodes. The Cap-IM BB discord chats are also happening on the same rotation of 2 weeks!

Finally, Marvel Trumps Hate has announced its schedule. Creator sign-ups will open in one month’s time, on Sunday, September 13, 12 AM ET (Eastern Time). Creators may offer different types of works such as fics, art, edits, videos, beta services, crafts, and more for any character, ship, or universe in the Marvel multiverse. Sign-ups will run until Saturday, September 26, 11:59 PM ET, which should give everyone plenty of time to think about what they’d like to offer, spread the word, and sign up as a creator! This year, there will be a preview week from October 11 to October 17, during which potential bidders can peruse all the auctions and start building their list of fanworks to bid on. We will also use this time to make corrections to auction pages before bidding begins. The 2020 MTH Auction Week will then run from October 18 to October 24. So either start saving your pennies or start prepping your offerings – or, better yet, BOTH!

This has been your events forecast, I’ll see you next episode and happy shipping!
