Happy New Year! Starting off the year with the [community profile] 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. 


I have 77 GIFsets and 7 fics to choose from in 2016, but I'll focus on 3:


The Martian: Newton's First Law

I'm really proud of this three parter fic because it has a great structure and heart. Also, the theme and conflicts are as science-y and detail oriented as the canon. Plus the love declaration in the second bit is pretty moving. ("This is what falling in love looks like.") I also tried writing in epistolary style for the third chapter and I LOVED IT. 10/10 would do again. Newton's First Law also does what canon (and fandom) doesn't: it focuses on the rest of the Ares 3 crew and the ground crew (although Watney is very much in character thoughts), it fills in that "7 MONTHS LATER" gap, and it challenges fanon theory about keeping Beck/Johanssen secret. I know Watney is everybody's fave, but I think even Weir understated how heroic the crew really were to come back for him.

More on Newton's First Law )

The Originals: Dear Destiny, F*ck You

I'm proud of this GIF set because of the way the poem and the scenes match up so perfectly. (Also look at that crisp resolution and how I flipped and then merged two GIFs in the 6th!) I think even the text placement makes symbolic sense. 


Moana: Smitten

I was leery of writing this at first because I was really worried about disrespecting the tone and theme of the film. It's SUCH a fantastic movie, with themes about self concept and determination, the importance of family/culture and relationship arcs between family and friends. The heroine is fourteen, she doesn't need a love interest

But just as Moana itself solves a historical puzzle (Why did Polynesian explorers stop for 1000 years and then start again?) by mashing up Polynesian myth with an incredible OC, Maui's death myth seemed to be begging for a Disney-fied solve. One does not simply walk into Death's obsidian-toothed vagina without consent. (Also why the hell would he have expected to come out of her mouth? Wrong hole, dude.) Plus I love flipping prophecy on its head and canon fix-its.

This was also a love/hate ep. What bugs me the most is that the Kolvina part I think i was supposed to love gave me the worst lip curling WTF reaction. Like I can feel myself shipping them less, and every time sets of it cross my dash I am just WHYYYY.

Give them hell, kid )

TO 3x20

Okay I'm still half NOOOO WTFEVEN and half OMG YASSSS over what happened in the ep so um. I'm reserving judgement on the parts that make me want to burn things until next ep? Like I'm hoping (perhaps stupidly) that they will be undone or deconstructed immediately because seriously SHUT UP. NO.

So I'll talk about what I loved under the cut. (All uncredited GIFs are mine. Let me know if you want them in a rebloggable set on tumblr.):

Okay here is me putting my unbridled optimism down somewhere. Yes, I have only myself to blame if I get kicked in the teeth by canon, but I don't think anything I spec is too far fetched?

I'm still so upset about this episode but I tried to make a proper response post:

No More Heartbreaks (HAHAHAHA) )
nrgburst: (katherine cessation of hostility)
I found this ep a bit filler-ish? I just got the feeling that the writers are trying to connect the bigger dots in their narrative with not-so plausible plot points instead of making an ep that stood up on its own? Also I was sorely disappointed on the Kolvina front:
