Day 06

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

I don't like asking for these things in general. It's hard for me because that little inner voice keeps reminding me that my fannish wants are probably stupid anyways so why ask. I'm endeavoring to smother that little voice this year, so here we go:

1. I would love for someone else to write a G1 Smokescreen/Ratchet fic. There are some for Prime, but I think I may be the only one writing the pairing for G1.

2. Fan art is always nice. I received a lovely piece based on one of my fics a few years back so I feel greedy asking for more, but I really wish that my works might inspire an artist. Mainly this is because I can only draw stick figures myself.

3. I would love it if someone could point me int he direction of some patterns for either crochet or needlework of some Transformers inspired craftwork.

Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

So, let's get this list started:

1. Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men: Because somebody has to! - I'm including this as a fanwork because these two are fans. Big fans. It is clear that they both adore the X-men and they are bound and determined to explain the whole history of the series. Which will take a while. They've been at this since 2014 and have only just gotten to X-Cutioner's Song. They post weekly (usually on Monday) and they will explain an arc of one of the X-Men comics - and by that, I mean, anything involving a mutant involved with the X-men line. So, X-Men, Xcalibur, New Mutants, etc, etc, etc, and they avoid the other series like Avengers, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, etc save for when there is a direct crossover. I imagine that it's for the sake of their sanity more than anything else. So, if you're interested in Marvel's X-Men series', go check them out. Seriously, they are great!

2. Archiving for the Ages: Significant Episodes in the Life of a Yithian by - There aren't a whole lot of Lovecraft/Mythos fanfics out there - maybe 350 on A03 - so I was really, really glad to discover this one. This story is a sort of retelling of "The Shadow Out of Time" told from the other side of the story. Now, I believe that you can understand this if you haven't read "Shadow", but it wouldn't hurt to read the inspiring story if you haven't already. The big advantage that this fanfic has is that it is written in a far more modern style (yes, I know that Lovecraft can be a tad dense) and it shows a wonderful use of non-gendered pronouns! In this story we learn of the lives and problems of the Yithians from "Shadow" - what they are doing, why they're doing it, and the whole socio-political world in which they find themselves. And, we learn how humanity effects the Mythos.

3.Maggie Fitzgerald and the Saltwater Drip by - Judging by the hits, kudoes, and comments, this is not an unknown or underappreciated fic; however, since i tend to hang in Transformers circles, I am hoping that I can introduce new people to this wonderful story. It is basically a modern telling of how Spider-Gwen comes to be in the Amazing Spider-man verse. It's written in third person present tense and it is written beautifully. Gwen is a realistic, well written girl who is really like a lot of young women out there. She needs to learn how to use and not abuse her powers and how to live in this new world in which she finds herself.

Day 03

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

So goals. I don't tend to like setting goals because they so often fall by the wayside and then I feel like crap when they aren't accomplished. So I'm going to keep it really simple this year. My goal is to post twelve things - be they fics, chapters, or flash fiction pieces. I may even post some of the bits and pieces I'm working on in the Marvel/TF fic.

So twelve posts. One post per month. That is the primary goal and the secondary goal is to fill in the AU world-building I seem to be working on with the Smokescreen/Ratchet fics. This should be attainable. Twelve is attainable.

Day 2

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I think that there are only a handful of things that really stayed with me as being truly excellent or innovative, but those things really do stay with me and I would miss them if I could never listen to or watch or read them again.

Oh there are so many that I could choose from but for sake of brevity, I will limit myself to Westworld.

Westworld was beautifully written with some real depth to the plot and characterizations. It told the story in a non-conventional way and I suspect that it is the kind of story that will be watchable again and again and, possibly again. Each of the characters is well crafted and it really shows what a writer can do with a non-linear plot.

So, it's Snowflake Challenge time again, and since I didn't do this last year, I really, really need to do this this year. See, I don't make resolutions at New Year (since resolutions are just asking to be broken), but I have made a decision to post more this year. And what better way to start than with the Snowflake Challenge?

Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
