Day 10: Fandom Snowflake Challenge

Day 10



Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or check out some fanworks that are new to you.


Ok, so this one I really shouldn't do, because the last thing I need is to start playing in another fandom. The list of fandoms I already read fic in is enormous!

So, of course like the idiot I am I read a House/Cameron fic. Damn. Maybe I should have stuck with my original idea of reading a new (to me) pairing in Harry Potter. Bugger.

If I miss posting tomorrows challenge, someone poke me. I'm going over to AO3 to drown myself in the House/Cameron tag now.

Oh, the fic I read was Detour.

Jan. 9th, 2015

So I have more new fandoms/obsessions.

I've started watching House. I still have no clue why I didn't watch it while it was on. I adore Hugh Laurie so I knew I'd like it, if for no other reason than I'd get to stare at him. :) I've been streaming it on Netflix and am about halfway through season 4. Did I mention I adore Hugh Laurie? He's gorgeous and I love him and now I want to watch Blackadder and Jeeves & Wooster and A Bit of Fry & Laurie. *sigh*

I've also been rabidly watching everything Tom Hughes has done. I watched The Game on BBC America a couple months ago and immediately became obsessed with him. So I've been watching things like London Hospital, Silk, Dancing on the Edge and a bunch of other stuff. I must admit it's odd having a crush on someone that's actually younger than me.

I'm enjoying the Fandom Snowflake Challenge, it's proven to be quite an interesting experience. I am ready for this round of landofart to be done though. I'm quickly running out of inspiration for graphics. I've begun waiting until just before challenges are due to get them done. Luckily I think there's only a few challenges left before then end of the round. I've been asked to create banners for some BtVS/AtS fic and I'd much rather be doing that.

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.


Talk about a talent you discovered you have. Finding folks who are geekier than you, or on the flip side, finding out that there is no one geekier than you. A person who changed your life. The possibilities are endless. Big or small, what unexpected surprises have you found?

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.



Like most people, I'm not really comfortable with posting this, but as that's the whole point of the challenge, here it is.

Day 7

In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs.

Day 6

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something.



I've been wanting an excuse to make new wallpapers for my phone, but all my graphics making time has been spent working on various challenges lately.

Day 5

In your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. How did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity?

Day Four


Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.

It doesn't have to be anything complex - it can be feedback for a fanwork or discussing something you might have in common or even simply admiring their icon. The point is to reach out to someone you normally wouldn't and connect with them, even if it's only for the briefest moment.



So, I'm counting this one done, since I've been commenting on all the Twinmas posts on hptwinsmut and I've interacted with a couple people from the Snowflake challenge that I've never talked to before.

Day 3

In your own space, talk about your creative process - from what inspires you to what motivates you to how you manage to break through blocks. Does your process change depending on the type of creating you're doing?



Really short boring answer...Collapse )

Day 2

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.
