Day 7

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Write a ficlet? Now there's a thought. And I've got just the prompt.

260) High-Stakes Bachelor by Cindy Dees
Wannabe stuntwoman Lucie Miller can't believe she's landed a starring role in actor-producer Karen Coltraine's new film. A plain-Jane nobody and a megastar? Their on-screen chemistry is electric, burning up the celluloid… but offscreen, Lucie is stalked by danger.
Like a true Hollywood hero, Karen whisks her to her oceanfront mansion, practising love scenes while keeping her safe. But when their real-life relationship starts mirroring the movie's leading couple,the confirmed spinster fears she may fall for the doe-eyed ingenue. If the stalker doesn't get her first…

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 did get a couple of my wishes granted from the last time I did this — thanks to [personal profile] lost_spook and [personal profile] liadtbunny, I'm no longer the only Jamie/Sam author on AO3, and [personal profile] liadtbunny has also drawn some illustrations for me).

  • Following on from last time's success with Jamie/Sam, wider participation in some other very niche ships: Lucie Miller/Karen Coltraine, Ace/Susan Q, Mary Dove/Inspector Neele, and Jamie McCrimmon/Jo Grant. OK, that's four wishes right there.

  • Given that the question is basically 'What do you want?', I can't resist: I want alt.drwho.creative to reclaim its rightful place in the fandom. I want to see This Time Round stretch forth its hand again, and command the world Outside! I want to see the Tod Brothers finally receive their long-deserved comeuppance! OK, I don't want to be taken over by an alien Keeper in order to save the ruins of adwc, but I do miss the Round. (Its 20th anniversary is 23 January 2018, so that gives my readers, if any, just over a year to come up with something.)

So much for keeping up with this challenge. I think the part-assembled jigsaw downstairs is distracting me.

Day 5 )

Also: You wait for a friending meme, and two come along at once. This one's on the Dreamwidth side, for those who've made the leap.

So I'm trying [community profile] snowflake_challenge again this year. Don't know how far I'll get with it, but here goes:

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.

I was rather busy at the weekend and missed [community profile] snowflake_challenge days 10 and 11. I'll have to come back to them at some point. For now, though, number 12 is delightfully apposite.

Day 12

In your own space, talk about what you bring to fandom. It can be something tangible, or not. 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 my contributions can be mainly summed up in two links: fanfic and random prompt generators. OK, there's a bit more than that; I sometimes annoy people with nitpicky forum posts, or muck about with doll generators or image macros, but they're very much a minor element.

What makes this question so appropriate for today is that I've just uploaded quite a significant update to the Unconventional Courtship Random Generator. New features include:

Day 9

In your own space, talk about what surprises you about fandom. It could be a pairing or fandom you never thought you'd like. A fanwork type you never knew existed. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Surprise! )

Now that the [community profile] fandom_stocking reveal has taken place, I thought I'd list the various ficlets I wrote for it:

Oh, and for what it's worth, today's snowflake challenge was:

Day 8

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.

I have to say that the image which immediately sprung to my mind on reading that was of Stanley Moon belting out 'Love me!' in the original Bedazzled. And a fat lot of good it did him :-)

Not strictly in my own space, because I posted it on [community profile] dw100: Wandering Hands (Ace, Charles II)

I've decided to do [community profile] snowflake_challenge this year. Well, it was that or talking about what I dreamed last night, and no-one wants to read that.

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.
