Hurricane Sandy
how does this count?
My original thought was inspired by the genre of disaster films, however, I think it'll be more fun to expand the theme to include natural disasters, man-made disasters, or any circumstances that could be called a "disaster" (even humorous ones) ... so long as it's not SF/F (sorry Wizard of Oz fans).
Unless I misread this ...

it's a good avatar but my assumption is that said disaster still has to be featured in fictional non-science fiction media. Otherwise it would go in MISC
This one's on me. I wasn't specific enough in the description, so I'd say the avatar is fair game for the contest. Plus, I'd rather err on the side of being more inclusive, not less. If anyone thinks an avatar doesn't belong in the contest based on the forum, then simply vote for something else. My apologies for any confusion.

od0_ital, I like the second Jack & Rose avatar - with them falling into the crashing wave.

Maybe something a bit more disaster-y?

OK. I'm confused. Was it NOT your actual intention to include real disasters?

Because I can change my entry.

The Towering Inferno

That was my choice several months ago when this theme was done, but it was deemed "sci-fi", not sure why.

You got my vote.

Maybe because producer Irwin Allen's name is associated with so many TV science fiction shows -- or because much of what we see in The Towering Inferno simply couldn't freaking happen!

(The movie's still a great E-ticket ride, though. Just ignore the implausibilities.)
