Hello everyone! How has the first half of the month treated you? Good I hope! Anyway, as the title says today's journal will be about submissions, contests, and Thor: The Dark World. So let's get started!
Submissions: Our new group Submission Policy has been in place for some time now. Have any of you visited its journal page? Have any of you recently submitted something to the group? If so, how was your experience? MarvelAvengers is always looking to improve so we love it when you give us feedback.
Contests: Recently, one of our devoted group members asked about the Summer Contest that MarvelAvengers had this summer. Unfortunately it is my sad duty to announce that since we didn't get as many entries as we'd have liked and because it has been so long, no prizes will be distributed. But we still want all those awesome artists and writers who sent in entries to get some recognition for their work. So I will be posting thumbnail links at the end of this journal to all entries. Please go check them out and give their creators some love!
Now let's switch over from Summer to Winter. We've had a lot of people join our group over the past few months (Hey guys! Welcome aboard!) and we've had an increase in submissions as well. So I'd like to give this whole seasonal contest thing a second try. Now the question I'm asking all of you is: Do you think we should we do a Winter contest? It would start on the first day of December and continue until early March. That way all of you guys can have a good chunk of time to work on entries. Any winter-type thing submission will be allowed, from snow to Christmas to whatever else you guys can dream up. I'd contact the people who offered to donate prizes for the Summer Contest to see if their offer still stands, and if anyone else wants to chip in I am definitely not going to refuse. And when the contest is over I'll post a journal with thumbnail links to all the entries and you, the MarvelAvengers group members, will each get to vote for three entries that you think should win. At the end of the voting period the scores will be tallied, and the winners will be rewarded. What do you guys think? Want to give it a go?
And speaking of upcoming contests, our group affiliate
is having a contest with the theme 'What happened to Loki and Darcy after the events in Thor: The Dark World?'. If you're interested you can find the contest's official journal here: mischieflovestasers.deviantart…
Thor 2: This latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now in theaters in most countries or will be soon. I myself was able to go watch it earlier this week. So I will be posting a Thor: The Dark World review. I'm writing it up as I type but I won't post it until early December so that as many of you have a chance to watch it as possible. And of course I will make sure to put up spoiler warnings. I'd hate to ruin any of the twists for you guys.
Well that's all for this journal. I look forward to hearing your opinions and please do take a look at the entries for our Summer Contest shown below. See ya!

A STARK WEEKEND (Iron Man Fan Fiction)A STARK WEEKEND
by John Paul Dodds
“Tony!”, Pepper yelled at him.
“Just a minute...”, he answered absently. Not even glancing up at her. His eyes were fixed on the display, his fingers danced almost idly over the console keys. “...I've just about got... HEY!”.
He shouted out in surprise as the holographic display in the air in front of him dissolved into pixels and disappeared. He span around to see Pepper standing by the socket. The plug was dangling from her hand, her other hand was on her hip and an aggravated expression marred her pretty features.
He held up his hands in mock surrender. “Okay. Okay. I give up. I'm coming.” He wasn't a genius for nothing.
“Tony!”, she sounded familiarly exasperated. “The plane leaves in twenty minutes!”. He looked around.
“Where are the bags then?”
She sighed. “In the car. Waiti
A STARK WEEKEND (Iron Man Fan Fiction) by
Summer Head canons?!?!The Avengers were quick to celebrate, away from NYC.
Bruce told them about a spot he used to enjoy visiting,
when he was in the states.
A small beach access, on the far side of California.
It sounded so nice, that even Thor agreed to go with them.
( Well, there was so bribing involved. Namely, Poptarts. )
" Is that as far as you can throw?!"
Tony asked, as Natasha threw the Frisbee.
Natasha walked up & snatched the Frisbee out of Tony's hands.
" See him?" Natasha asked, pointing to an shield agent, 100 feet out.
" Yeah, think he is spying on us?" Tony asked.
Natasha swung the Frisbee into the man's head,
knocking him unconscious, " Not anymore." She replied.
" Give them to me." Thor whined, his face covered in tears.
" Nope." Clint replied, chewing on a poptart.
" But...But...You promised!" Thor wailed.
" I lied." Clint said, with a grin.
" WHY?!?!" Thor carried on, kicking & whining.
" Hey, what's up?" Bruce asked, sitting next to Steve.
The soldier trembled
Summer Head canons?!?! by
Blind FaithOkay, this has spoilers for Episode 1 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. There, you've been warned.
Clint blinked as he stared at the orders on the table from S.H.I.E.L.D. Boldly written and very much in a familiar handwriting were the words:
'Go on vacation. Preferably Tahiti.'
He picked up the paper, expecting actual orders, but nothing else was there. Tugging on Tasha's sleeve didn't help either since hers were similar. He looked at his sister in all but blood and shrugged helplessly.
"Is this a joke-Oh, not you too!" Tony groans as he waves a piece of paper that is starting to look as though this is an Avengers-wide order.
"Did anyone else get orders to go on vacation?" Steve mumbled, the perfectly groomed eyebrows furrowing as he compared papers with Tony.
"Apparently this is either a joke or..." Clint hisses with disgruntlement lingering in every word.
"Or we're actually supposed to go to Tahiti." Bruce held up his orders as well. Thor hadn't been seen since the 'New Yor
