I’m thrilled to be able to participate in so many creative ideas, like Emma of Scruffy Little Nerd Herder’s new photography prompt, 5 on 15. I’m sure a lot of you have seen the 6 on 6 posts floating around the geeky blogosphere. Well, this is that prompt’s quirky big sister! Each month on the 15th, we’ll be posting five photos based on a theme. For the 6 on 6 prompt, those themes centered around different colors…this time, we’re doing something a little more challenging!

August’s theme is ‘Invasion,’ and I really struggled coming up with five photos that capture that theme. I think I ended up doing a decent job though, and I can’t wait to see what everyone else came up with!

Oh man, will the Daleks ever stop trying to invade Earth? I mean, give it up guys, it’s never going to happen! Not as long as the Doctor has our backs, of course=P

Is anyone else a huge fan of Invader Zim? Even though it premiered when I was a kiddo, I never watched it until a few years back. I’m glad of that fact, since I think that a lot of the humor would have went over my head as a child. Any way, GIR is of course my favorite character, and this GIR/Powerpuff Girls mash-up makes me so happy!

I’ve talked about The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway on this blog before, and that’s because it is seriously SO GOOD. It revolves around an invasion of sorts…so I’m counting it as relevant to this month’s theme.

I’m going to try to keep the beer photos going in this new prompt, because there really are so many cool beer labels to choose from! This month I’m going with Invasion IPA, a collaboration beer by Mikkeler and Anchorage, which was a super tasty Belgian-type IPA. Not too hoppy at all, so if you aren’t a fan of IPAs but like a good Belgian, this one is definitely worth a taste!

The timing of this month’s prompt couldn’t be more perfect, since August 9th marked the start of the Burning Legion invasions in World of Warcraft! The new expansion, Legion, doesn’t officially drop until the 30th, but the pre-release brings all kinds of fun new content!

What would you have included in this month’s prompt? I’d love to hear your ideas on the subject of invasions! So many great fandom-related stuff to apply to the theme, and I’m hoping to see a lot of fun things I didn’t think of in all of your posts! Thanks to Emma for creating yet another awesome monthly prompt<3



  1. Ommgggggggg, You won my heart with the Daleks and the TARDIS<3

  2. Lovely photos Ashlee! Love that beer bottle – so great. I definitely didn’t have enough variety for the invasion theme so I skipped this month.

    • Thanks, my dear! That bottle was too much fun…and funny story, my husband actually picked it out for me after hearing that I needed invasion-themed things for this month’s prompt!

  3. Great collection! I was thisclose to including my Dalek POP, too, but went with my little Cyberman. 🙂

    And love, love, love Invader Zim. I really should rewatch it.

  4. Ahh.. can’t believe I forgot Invader Zim! I adore that show. I also love the Invasion IPA bottle – where do you find all these crazy awesome beers? I’ve only seen one semi interesting one down my way. Actually, I think you’d love it, it has dinosaurs on it. I’ll have to send it to you!

    • I’d completely love it, so heck yeah!! We have a lot of craft breweries and liquor stores that carry craft beer so I’m always running across fun, unique bottles. It just works out that I’m such a fan of beer too, so I can collect a whole bunch of em:)
