Day 15

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I can't believe it's over already! Those 15 days go fast.

I wrote a love letter to Harry Potter fandom a couple of years ago here (LJ/IJ/DW), so I'm not going to repeat that.

Instead, this year, I think I'll write to my FList/Circle. :)

Dear Flist... )

Day 14

Go forth and commit an act of kindness. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it, tell us about it if you’re comfortable doing so.


I trawled through the Snowflake posts and commented on someone's fic as well as left some recs for a community for someone else to try.
No links, because I figure the whole point of random acts of kindness is relative anonymity. :)
And who knows, maybe I'll wander around and do some more random commenting since I'm behind in so many fests. <3

Day 13

In your own space, write about a moment in fandom that meant a lot to you. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Wow, there are so many fandom moments to remember. Here are just a few:

Attending Sectus, when I met so many fandom people I'd only heard about for the first time. That was when I met [livejournal.com profile] dementordelta and [livejournal.com profile] snapetoy, and they were so sweet and gracious! I remember getting my copy of DH at midnight, after lining up for it (the bookstore people were fun), the people honking at us from their cars as we stood in line in London, how tired we all were, but no one could sleep until we'd read it, the panels the next day where we all processed Snape's (supposed) death....

Meeting [livejournal.com profile] femmequixotic and having her invite me to join [livejournal.com profile] pornish_pixies. I think I squeed inside for days after that!

Likewise, getting invited to [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant (I still have my invitation email from [livejournal.com profile] snegurochka_lee. I squeed for a while after that, too. *g*

Participating in the [livejournal.com profile] snarry_games, and even co-captaining a team one year!

The first time hosting the Snarry Suite ™ at a con, with Delta and Lilyseyes. It was SO MUCH FUN sharing the Snarry love with everyone.

Meeting [livejournal.com profile] celandineb and [livejournal.com profile] sassy_cissa and [livejournal.com profile] dysonrules and [livejournal.com profile] emynn and [livejournal.com profile] cruisedirector and [livejournal.com profile] accioslash and [livejournal.com profile] r_grayjoy and [livejournal.com profile] gracerene and [livejournal.com profile] torino10154 and [livejournal.com profile] djin7 and [livejournal.com profile] kellychambliss and [livejournal.com profile] pennswoods and so many others! *flails* (If I didn't mention you, don't pout, I love you, too) ♥ Every single fandom person I meet is special to me and I want to meet everyone. I swear, I squee every time I meet another kindred soul. I love my fandom so damn much! *hugs you all*

Night, all! Zzzzzz

Day 11

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Today I get to talk about my darling bb [insanejournal.com profile] lilyseyes!
If you're not in Snarry fandom, you prolly haven't heard of her since she writes primarily Severus/Harry or Severus and Harry.
What's the difference? Well, her Severus/Harry is delicious, happy, fluffy, sexy, usually with a side of expertly created plot and some sweet Mpreg, while her Severus and Harry is poignant and heartbreaking, usually featuring abused!baby Harry being rescued by Severus and adopted as his own. If you read any of these, have your tissues ready!
She has several ongoing fic series' in both these categories, although if you forced me to rec one it would be The Breathe Series, which is brilliant.
Also, she is a wonderfully steadfast friend, and a fabulous person all around. (And she could totally cosplay Draco. *g*)
Anyway, this is all to say, Lilyseyes ROCKS! <3

Day 10

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Hm. This is an unexpectedly tough one. There are lots of tropes and kinks I like.
For example, I adore cross-dressing (especially skirtporn), semi-public sex, desk sex, gloves, glasses...
So, I'm not going to talk about any of that, LOL. I'm going to talk about first times )

Day 9

Send feedback to two fannish people — they can be anyone you want: a writer who’s made you happy, a moderator of your favorite exchange (not us!), a fanartist you avidly follow… There are so many possibilities. Just let someone know you appreciate their work.


So may people to choose from!
This year I've picked three. An artist, an H/D writer, and a Snarry writer. *g*
I've also posted this feedback in their journals. <3

Dear, [livejournal.com profile] shadowycat, you are such a fabulous artist, I can't even fathom how you do it. And you're so fast. I love collaborating with you, and I hope we can do more collabs this year. Your drawings are always so tactile and detailed. You rock, hon!
Link here.

I just finished giving feedback (sort of) to you, [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore, in my journal, but today's Snowflake challenge is to give it to you in your journal, too, (at least that's how I'm interpreting it) so you're getting more. Birds, your writing is always so engaging and vibrant. I fall into your stories head first every time. I dunno how you do it, but you're fabulous and fun and awesome and a gift to fandom!
Link here.

Dear, [livejournal.com profile] torino10154. Thank you for all you do for Snarry. Running fests, writing fics, always thinking up ways to keep people engaged and enthralled. Also, you write the sexiest Snarry stories. I remember telling you (amongst other things) that all I want for my OTP is happy fucking. Thank you for giving us that in spades year after year (and for being a great friend). <3

Day 8

In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Ugh.

Okay, I struggled with this one, as I'm sure we were meant to. :P
I eventually came up with some answers. Short ones, but answers nonetheless.

Cut because this is likely of interest to few people but me )

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.


I tried to think of a 5 word story, but that was beyond me I'm afraid.
So instead, have a Snape/Harry drabble set written for [community profile] snape100. *g*

Day 6

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.


As always, I'd LOVE art for any of my stories. <3

I'd love some Next Gen character icons, especially Al, Scorpius, James, and grown up Teddy.

Also, I'd adore it if people would write for [community profile] snarry100 drabble prompts (actually, I'd love it even more if people wrote/drew/created more Snarry in general).

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.


OMG, I am so behind on fests, it's crazy.
But I have also been reading frantically, so I shall rec from what I have read/seen. Please realize that this doesn't mean that the other stuff isn't reccable, just that I haven't got to it yet!

From [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised

Lumos by Anon [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore, 42K, NC-17, Harry/Draco.

The dialogue in this fic is stellar, as is the mutual wanking (yes, you read that right). And Harry's inner thoughts are perfect and utterly hysterical. Also, I'm a sucker for original magic, and this story hit that button perfectly. Really lovely tale with gorgeous characterizations and did I mention the dialogue? Also, Draco's trunk hilariously steals the show. *giggles*

Weed or Wildflowers by Anon [livejournal.com profile] lq_traintracks and [livejournal.com profile] sdkshelly, 17.5K, NC-17, Harry/Draco.

Another fic where the dialogue makes it. Can you tell I have a thing for snark? *g*
Draco and Harry keep getting set up on dates together, and after a while they start to like it. Not that Draco's about to admit that. The supporting characters are great, the premise fun, and the sex, sizzling.

Rainy Days and Grimoires by Anon [livejournal.com profile] 8c, art, HarryDraco.

Gorgeous color scheme is gorgeous. Also, the premise is sweet, and there's an absolutely delicious kiss. And books! Also Draco's robes, Harry's hair, Draco's braid. Go look just to see Draco's braid. LOL.

Breakfast is for Eating in by Anon [livejournal.com profile] anokaba, art (NSFW), Harry/Draco.

Make sure you're alone when you click on this because whoa nelly, it's sizzling. Let's just say Harry's choice of breakfast is...unorthodox. *g* Also, the color scheme (one you get around to noticing that) is wonderfully warm, and then there's the sock. Dudes, that sock is just...*bites fist* Go look.

From [livejournal.com profile] hoggywartyxmas

An Excellent Choice by Anon [livejournal.com profile] shadowycat, art, Severus/Minerva, PG-13.

This depicts a lovely, tender, and intimate moment between lovers, although I'm pretty sure Severus is paying less attention to the book and more to Minerva's cleavage. *g* Wonderfully drawn, their hair is great, and the textures are practically touchable. Beautiful work!

Great Balls of Snow by Anon [livejournal.com profile] sigune, art, Minerva, Severus, assorted others, Gen.

Delightfully charming art and story depicting an annual and ongoing winter competition between Minerva and Severus. If you click on nothing else on this list, see this. It's superb.

Friends, Teachers, Countrymen by Anon [livejournal.com profile] hiddenhibernian, 3700, Severus, others, R.

This story made me shiver and sigh, sob and laugh. It's a beautiful imagining of Severus' holidays and the gifts he gives his friends, even when they cannot know they have received them. Bittersweet, poignant, and heartbreaking tale.

From [livejournal.com profile] mini_fest

Warm Christmas Magic by Anon [livejournal.com profile] shadowycat, art, Minerva, Gen.

Beautiful warm colors and fabulous line work make this piece cosy and warm. I love Minerva's sweater and I can practically smell the hot chocolate. Yum. :)

Dashing Through the Snow by Anon [livejournal.com profile] akatnamedeaster, art, Sirius and Buckbeak, G.

Everything about this depicts joy and happiness and winter cheer. Especially the looks on their faces as they 'dash'. And I love the sense of movement the artist conveys. Wonderful work! :)

Whew!
And remember, if you see/read something you like, leave some love, yes?

Day 4

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"


So at first I was like, "But how? Everyone on my Flist is, well, my friend!" But then I saw the friending meme, so I left a comment here (come say hi!) and I friended someone here.
And then I realized there's someone I have seen everywhere who I've been meaning to friend, so I friended [livejournal.com profile] gelsey. *waves at new friend*
So I think I'm good. ;)

Also, if you want to join the meme, here you go!

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.


Obvious answer is obvious, or maybe not? )

And wow, that got wordy. I didn't actually think I had that much to say. :)
alisanne: (Default)
I wasn't sure I was gong to do this, but then I figured, why not? So, here we go again.



Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner


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 shall rec some of my fave fanworks from 2016.
Self Recs Ahoy )
alisanne: (Default)
Day 15

In your own space, create your own challenge. What’s something you want to see more people doing in fandom? Is there something fun you’ve tried that you think other people would enjoy if they gave it a go? Dare your friends to try it out, and have fun with it.


So I've been pondering this all day and I think I'm going to have to go with this.

Try something new! Be it writing in a new fandom or, if you're a one fandom person (like me) write a different pairing. Maybe, if you only write one genre, try writing another. If you write fluff, try some darkfic, if you write angsty porn, try some gen. Or maybe try creating art if you're a writer or writing if you're an artist. Maybe you've been meaning to write your original novel, if so, do it! Whatever your thing is, mix it up, keep it fresh!

As for something fun for everyone to try...How about drabbling? Pick a drabble community and try writing a 100 word story for them. You may surprise yourself!


Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner


And done! *dances*

Day 13

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I pondered this all day and have finally decided to feature someone who's not around at the moment, but who, when she is around, is the very heart and soul of Snarry.

All about Accio )

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.


This one may be worse than Day 8. *wibbles*

Okay, so I guess I'm kinda useful when it comes to encouraging drabbling? I do run all the a bunch of drabble communities (specifically [community profile] snape100, [community profile] snarry100, [community profile] dracoharry100, [community profile] harry100, and [insanejournal.com profile] neville100).

I am sort of an ambassador for my OTP (Snarry), I suppose, in that I've had many people tell me that my fic served as a gateway to that pairing. (It's worked the other way, too, though, with the occasional Snarry shipper telling me I helped them see that HD has its merits *g*).

I'm enthusiastic? I mean, I post every day, so I guess I'm still in love with Harry Potter fandom. *hugs everyone*

That's all I can think of at the moment. *slinks away*

Edit: Oops. I forgot the [community profile] sshp_prophet. I am one of the editors, although I suppose if I disappeared someone else would take care of that. :)
