    Welcome to the latest installment of the TV/Media Avatar Contest! This week's theme is: DISASTER!

    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).

    Normal avatar rules apply (150x150).

    Here's my entry:

    Touché! Love it!

    I was wondering how long it was going to take for someone to choose this! :techman:

    ^

    Well, it is a pretty obvious choice....

    - edit, to add -

    Alright, how 'bout something a bit more obviously from the James Cameron movie....?

    Maybe something a bit more disaster-y?

    Opinions, if any?

    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

    Hilarious! It counts in my book!

    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.

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

    Because I can change my entry.
