In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. (details/original post)

3, 2, 1, GO!

In your own space, create a fanwork. (details/original post)

recs were listed as a possible fanwork, and since I have been sitting on these since Dec 9th when [personal profile] wesleysgirl asked for Torchwood recs, I figured I might as well post them. I meant to put all the recs requests together in one post, but I only got this far and then stuff kept piling on me and making it harder and harder for me to actually write the recs!

(note: Ianto is my favorite, and I do have a tendency to drift toward fics where he's the focus of the story and/or extra badass. also, alive.)

The Intersections Series by [ profile] NancyBrown -- This is my absolute favorite Torchwood fic series ever. You don't have to read them all; you can start with Intersecting Geodesics if you want to skip the Jenny/Alice stuff, but honestly the Jenny/Alice fics are short and wonderfully done. But IG is where the plotty stuff starts, and it's Jack/Ianto. :D?

My second favorite Torchwood fic is another 'series' (well, a shortish fic and its longer sequel): The Lo-Verse by [personal profile] copperbadge. It is another time travel fic, which are way common in this fandom (which is totally cool with me since time travel is one of my weaknesses!) and I honestly love and adore the Jack backstory and futurestory and everything in between. Also, worldbuilding, because YES. *hearteyes*

Iantowood by [ profile] jovialien is a long, long series that's a little dark but a lot of amazing. I loved the premise and it gave me hours of enjoyment. There's a recurring theme of sacrificing for love, and yeah, I'm a sucker for that.

Shades of Ianto by [ profile] sarcasticchick (also the author of the unfinished Windhovers series, which is recced but with caveats 'cause the stopping point leaves you wanting much much more!). SoI's summary is "Ianto is much more than just a teaboy" which should be the default summary of every single Torchwood fic out there, but okay. In this one he is! I guess I'd call him 'heir to the Torchwood legacy' or somesuch. The third and final story in the series is a mild crossover with SGA, and it has dragons.
green: (stock: hell yeah)
inside this post = fannish rambling, recs, musings, etc.

cut for length! )
green: (due south: fraser/rayk)
In your own space, share a favorite memory about fandom: the first time you got into fandom, the last time a fanwork touched your heart, crazy times with fellow fans (whether on-line or off-line), a lovely comment you’ve received or have left for someone.

favorite fannish moments:

1. a conversation I had with someone while I was on the fringes (yahoo chatroom) of buffy fandom —

me: I like Buffy and Faith.

her: really? do you like femslash?

me: *trying to parse the word, thinking slash=fighting monsters* YES!

her: I write Buffy/Faith and Buffy/Willow. want to read some?

me: sure!

her: *sends me to her yahoo group*

me: *gets EDUCATED FAST*

much more )
green: (bandom: mikeyway is shiny)
Today's challenge is:

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share you love and squee as loud as you want to.

I started to write it, but it got a LITTLE too revealing and I don't want to do that right now.

I just love all of you, and I want you to know that. You mean so much to me. This is my tenth (a decade omg) year in fandom, and I've met so many wonderful people, and I want you to know that you all mean a lot. Every one of you.

Maybe I'll come back to this one and do a I LOVE MIKEYWAY post or a I LOVE RAYK post or something, but not today.
green: (bandom: the future is bulletproof)
In your own space, ask for recs.

1. I would really like to read Killjoys fic where the world is explored more fully. Lots of slang, lots of BLI conspiracy theories, lots of stuff about the other people who live in the Zones.

2. I would like to read some character meta about Derek Hale.

3. Writing (craft) meta that's been written relatively recently (the last two years or so).
green: (i-man: trio)
In your own space, rec at least three fanworks that you think would make a good intro into XYZ fandom. Rec a fandom overview, a introductory picspam, stories that define and shape the fandom.

I don't normally do small fandoms but this one is near and dear to my heart. And almost completely dead, woe. Once upon a time, [ profile] sisabet sent me some VCDs of this show and I fell in love. (I think most of the fandom grew out of folks mailing VCDs) I even wrote fic!

I-Man Post Of Nostalgia

What it is: Okay, so. There's this (gorgeous and snarky) thief who agrees to have a gland implanted in his brain so he can go invisible (this was his only way of staying out of prison). Only there's a catch - the 'quicksilver' that allows the invisibility builds up in his body and slowly kills him. So he has to get these injections so he doesn't die - but the only people who have the counteragent are a secret government organization! So the (gorgeous and snarky) thief partners up with a (badass and snarky) agent and together they fight crime!

Crack Van has a better overview. Alas, all the pictures are dead. But there are some pictures of Darien Fawkes here! Completely shallow and perfect. And then there are MORE pictures here, this time of Bobby Hobbes. (you might, at first glance, not understand the HOTNESS of Bobby Hobbes. That is because you are a newbie to I-Man. Just wait and see.)

Where to find it:

Oh god. Now, here's the problem. SciFi/SyFy only put out season 1 on DVD and not season 2. BUT there are people who know people who might be able to find S2 for you. Maybe?

EDIT: Both seasons are available on Hulu!

The fic:

Instead of reccing particular fics, I will point you to a couple of rec lists.

one, two.

A fic I enjoyed recently was The Cat Wants What the Cat Wants by [ profile] misura. Darien gets turned into a cat!

I-Man on AO3!

The vids:

Kryptonite by [ profile] flummery (Seah & Margie) (bestest most favorite)
Weeping Willow by [ profile] sisabet

The meta:

Bobby/Darien Ship Manifesto

and... I can't find more, I have no time. sorry. BUT you should have enough to get you started here.

In conclusion: I-Man was WONDERFUL.

green: (buffy: chosen)
In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favourite interview, a book) and explain why you love it so much.

I was going to do a top five, but have a top ten. Plus a bonus.

some images here, along with wibbling, and some shipping )

And there you have my incomplete list of favorite scenes.
green: (Default)
this one was difficult. the challenge is: In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. It can be a detailed, thoughtful analysis, or a squeeful, joyful post. Or maybe a combination of the two. Make a recs list, link to their archives or master lists or websites, maybe create a Fanlore page for them.

I had a hard time finding the right person to rec. my mind went something like lim/speranza/dira/acid&sinick/sisabet and I couldn't choose! (and decided not to do people I know, because that felt weird) and then I started doing one of those and got really stressed about not having read all their stuff lately. (however, I did find/read a male!Hawke/reincarnated!Anders, so all was not lost)

anyway, long story short, I picked [ profile] gyzym! Do you know her? Have you read her stuff? SHE IS AWESOME.

Here's a short reclist of her fics! )

okay, that is all I'm reccing, but serious you should read everything she's written.

so go forth! she is found at: [ profile] gyzym, [ profile] gyzym, [ profile] gyzym, [ profile] gyzym
green: (teen wolf: isaac)
In your own space, talk about setting yourself a fannish goal. Big or small, it doesn't matter.

Big Goal: I'm going for a blackout on trope bingo.
What you can do: cheer me on!

Little Goal: I'm going to make a fanmix. Maybe for a fic, maybe for a character or ship. I'm not sure. But I'm gonna do it!
What you can do: rec songs with meaningful lyrics!

(haha, see how I rope you in to helping me with my goals? I'm devious like that)
green: (Default)
In your own space, pimp three comms or challenges and explain why you love them. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

1. OKAY. First of all, I would like to announce that I'm running [community profile] getmikeylaid again this year. I missed last year because of computer difficulties, and the year before because of, um, brain difficulties. Or maybe it was the other way around? But anyway, the fest WILL be on. So go ahead and join/watch the comm (if you are into MIKEYWAY and his need to GET LAID) and I will put up a prompt post TOMORROW.

Prompt post: Jan 7-27
Claim post: Jan 28-10
Posting dates: March 11-25

2. [community profile] purimgifts: a little bird told me this is going again this year? I hope so! It's an awesome multifandom swap. From the FAQ:
Since Purim is the ultimate Jewish women power holiday, ficlets should be focused around one or more of the following:
characters who are Jewish and/or
characters who are women and/or
characters who are persecuted by evil viziers (hey, it's not us, it's the megillah.)

3. [community profile] tentaclebigbang! Writer and artist/podfic/mix signups are OPEN. I'm already signed up for both. The minimum word count is only 10k, and it's multifandom, including RPS and original.

4. [community profile] amplificathon! I'm just discovering podfic (I'm slowwwww, okay?) and this is an awesome way to find stuff. Or post it, if you make podfic.

5. [community profile] fan_flashworks is TREMENDOUS. I haven't done anything for them yet, but the responses are really great.

6. [community profile] mikeyway_daily posts pics of Mikey Way and I like to squee.

7. [community profile] bestthingever and [community profile] fancake for recs!

8. [community profile] teen_wolf, which needs to be more active. I vow to post something to them this week. Or next week. SOON, anyway.

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.

1. Art for any of my fics, but especially The Holy War (Sherlock BBC), Cycle of Souls (My Chemical Romance), Chord and Sinew (MCR/Hard Core Logo), or Sow the Wind (BtVS, where Spike and Xan are girls).

2. FIC: MCR/HCL! Mikeyway/Billy. Or Mikeyway/CKR fic. Teen Wolf: Peter/Stiles fic that isn't rape or dub-con. Fic where when Peter comes back, he comes back as his teenaged self. (feel free to combine these last two prompts!)

3. Vids: Sterek vid to Jawbox's version of I've Got You Under My Skin. Or Breezeblocks, by alt-J. All Stiles all the time vid to Firework (David Choi version).

4: ICONS: Hot Fuzz icons! pic icons or text/quote icons or a combination of both. :D

5. People to chat and fic Teen Wolf with. I'm on gtalk (AIM SUCKS LATELY) as beingagreenmother

6. Derek meta. Stiles meta. Isaac meta. Lydia meta. Peter meta. Boyd meta. Basically, meta about particular characters (not shippy). I like to read ‘how this character works’ meta, because it helps tremendously with my characterizations when I’m writing.

7. Comment to this post and tell me what your favorite fic of mine is, and why. (this would be awesome)

8. Soulmate/soulbond recs for Teen Wolf, Sherlock BBC, and/or Avengers.
green: (labyrinth: dance with me)
from today's [community profile] snowflake_challenge: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

Okay. I can do this. *firm nod*

Smaller fandom (all Labyrinth):

5 Labyrinth recs )
green: (bandom: the future is bulletproof)
From today's [community profile] snowflake_challenge: 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.

Okay, so I picked three works. One is a vid, one is art, and one is fic. I will tell you why I picked them!

Title: Rebel Girl
Fandom: Whip It
Medium: Vid
Summary: A love letter to Bliss.
Why I chose this: I think it's my best vid to date. It has its problems, but it's fun and makes me want to dance and I think I got my point across well. (that point being BLISS IS AWESOME) The download link doesn't work and I lost the file on my old computer, but you can still watch it on YouTube.

Title: TBP-era Mikey
Fandom: My Chemical Romance
Medium: Art
Summary: Mikey Way rocking out.
Why I chose this: It's the best vector (fan)art I've done. I hope I can make Inkscape work for me this well. (I did this one in Illustrator)

Title: Choose Your Own (a Mikeyway Adventure)
Fandom: My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Cobra Starship, The Young Veins/PATD/whatever Ryan Ross is doing these days
Medium: Fic (explicit and underage)
Summary: A high school AU choose your own adventure fic revolving around Mikey Way. :D
Why I chose this: This isn't the best writing I've ever done, nor is it representative of my usual stuff. But it was FUN, dammit. I had so much fun writing it and putting it together, and I'm very proud of it.

As always, feedback is love. ♥ HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!
green: (Default)

I missed this last year, and it looks like a lot of fun. I'm all for squee!

Also, I started something for Yuletart (a stocking stuffer from the list) and then realized they were suppposed to be done by the 25th. So ... idk if I'll finish it or not. But I'm gonna do SOMETHING. Soon.
