August Banner Challenge: Voting!  
August's challenge was a prompting challenge. Thanks and free drinks in the bar for everyone who left prompts and submitted banners! The deadline for voting is Midnight GMT Wednesday 31st July. Which one would you like to see at the top of the comm next month?

Banner One
for [livejournal.com profile] crazy4orcas's prompt: Just use images from Clint and Natasha's on-screen time together.




Banner Two
for [livejournal.com profile] salmastryon's prompt: I think it might be interesting to have one where the pictures used of the two of them can't include their faces. Instead using shots of different parts of their body that are recognizably them. So, often banners focus on the face, I think the talented banner makers in this community could make something cool along this line though.




Banner Three:
for [livejournal.com profile] anuna_81's prompt:
Love doesn’t die,
People do.
So, when all that’s left of me
Is love,
Give me away.
- Merritt Malloy





Banner Four
for [livejournal.com profile] endeni's prompt: Comic-book!verse Clint/Natasha...! Or any other verse, really, except movie-verse. :)




Banner Five
for [livejournal.com profile] endeni's prompt: Comic-book!verse Clint/Natasha...! Or any other verse, really, except movie-verse. :)




To vote: comment on this post with the number of the banner you’d like to win at the top of your comment as a word and in capital letters eg. NINE If you want to say anything else in your comment (praise, questions, whatever) please do that as a new paragraph, or leave a line or something, so that there’s no confusion over which banner you’re voting for. Thanking you!

Biased as hell, I know. I love what came out of that quote :)

I love that moment, only because it's the only time I think we get to see more Clint Barton than Hawkeye. And he doesn't even say a word. Haha

It was a tough call between one and four, but the green and sun sold me finally on one. It has been rather dreary around here of late.

Is it just me or is the bottom half of three all messed up. It is all pixelated and the words are unreadable. It just looks really weird. The top part is all nice and crisp then there is a marked delineation and it looks like the bottom half got corrupted. :(

I'm not sure but 3 didn't load for me on the computer so I looked at it on my phone.

Thanks for pointing that out. I don't know what was going on there :/ Tried a different image source and re-uploading, and it looks better on my screen now. Is it clearer on yours?

I am totally the only one but I LOVE that one.
[identity profile] happilydancing.livejournal.com on July 27th, 2013 11:26 pm (UTC)
I actually love that one too, but I just want to see their pretty faces as much as possible ;). I love the comic book ones too!
[identity profile] salmastryon.livejournal.com on July 27th, 2013 11:32 pm (UTC)
I liked it as well. They always make it so hard to choose each month.

Since I'm not the only one either, I'll vote even though it's a long shot >.>

Okay, this was really, really difficult. I love the colours in one and the images of them in Central Park always make me smile a lot. Banner two, wow, my brain instantly leaps to Clint/Natasha even without their faces and even with this being a Renner and Scarlett image, that's how embedded that half-hug has become in my fannish brain. Five is interesting juxtapositon. I very nearly went with three because I adore the colouring and that poem is so very suited to them, and ideas of love, of concepts of love that are 'for children' and other concepts. That even if one dies they are the type to carry on, to Avenge even, and that that alone would make them superheroes, the ability to carry on and do good when the world has ended for them. But there was also sad in that and it was pipped at the post by:

four because of the poses being exactly the same and paired with that quote from the film, all the implications of the amount of versions of these characters that there have been in film, comics, cartoon, books, and so on, ideas of interpretation of these characters. Before we even get onto the amount of times they've reclaimed their identies or struggled with identity issues in comics and films. And that interpretation is a fantastic theme for a fandom community! <3 And it's pretty to top it off :D

love both images and the quote, and it also works as meta commentary on ret-cons in comics!

Another month with a hard choice, they're all so well done!


pssstt -- mods -- you have the deadline for voting as 31 AUGUST.

shhh, move along please, nothing to see here *whistles innocently*

Which is to say THANK YOU, I've changed that now :) Y'know, first person to spot it, good to see someone's awake around here. I had these posts tagged as 'banner challenge 2012' until a month or so ago and no one had spotted that. Time; we do not do so well with it around these parts *gins*.

It was a tough choice between one and four. My obsession stems from Marvel comic books, so these characters are just as alive in print as they are on screen for me. Ultimately, ONE gets my vote. Honorable mentions to all of them - very well done.

(for reasons set out by kcrenegade ...) Besides, I like Clint's hair all sticky-up like that and wouldn't mind looking at it for a month .... Okay, so I'm shallow.

PS: Does #5 have a typo in the text -- "own" for "owe"?
