t-bag: they always try to run away

Now that lj finally works...

...I can ask for your help. I have a billion ideas buzzing around in my head. The problem is I'm not sure which one to pick for further development. Sooo, help me out?

Problem specifications: I want to have some sort of challenge where I can icon Farscape episodes (one ep/week, not more than a few icons per episode). Something interactive where I could discuss the episodes with others would be a big plus.

Background: We have finally reached the end of the weekly club_farscape rewatches, and as far as I understand the plan is to start again from the beginning on Sunday. However, I've seen the episodes a gazillion times already so I'm not sure there's any point in watching them yet again, unless this time I have an icon challenge to go with it - the best kind of motivation. Soooo I'll need to come up with an idea asap.

So, obviously I still have a LOT to decide, and there's room for modifications in each of these so if one of these only half works for you, I'm really open to concrit. Also, I know some of these are explained in a horribly confusing and rambly way so if you didn't get what I meant with some of the options, please ask, I'd be happy to clarify!

And just to clarify - no matter which option I pick, any possible comm would be free for all (=not an elite comm), and if I pick one of the Farscape options, participating would not require coming to the club_farscape chats.

It would be awesome if you could fill the poll if any of these interest you at all! Please only fill this if you read the descriptions above cause the short descriptions in the poll don't really give a good idea of the solution.

I'll of course still do other challenges as well and pick other fandoms for those, so please don't comment with 'pick Supernatural for this instead'! Yes I know you want me to icon it but as stated above, I have a good reason for wanting to pick Farscape for this project, to go with the shared rewatch :)

Huge thanks to anyone willing to help me with this!! I hate it when I have too many ideas, lol. If this post doesn't get any replies or votes, I'll just go for option #1 or #4 or manipulate a friend or two into option #2 :D

umm

PLEASE TELL ME 'BLOODY MARY' IS LIKE THE SCARIEST SPN EP

good thing I watched that in the middle of the day, it was creeeeeeepy o.O

Still, I'm enjoying SPN a lot, esp the dialogue. and I readjusted my viewing schedule cause otherwise it would have taken me freaking forever to get anywhere. So now instead of each weekday having its own show, I'm using a weighed roulette wheel selection anytime I want to watch something. The wheel is weighed according to the amount of unwatched episodes each of the shows (Lost, SPN, Buffy, OUAT & Classic who) has, so the random chance will favor the humongous shows like SPN and Lost. This way, I'll make decent progress in each of the shows and get a quick start to the longer shows.
(...yes, I know normal people just decide what to watch and when... shutup)

Farscape, Defiance and NuWho aren't in the wheel because FS I'm watching with a set schedule in the rewatch chats, and the other two are the only shows I'm trying to follow at least somewhat keeping up with the airings, so these three are still one ep/week.
