Day 12

In your own space, post a rec for fannish spaces and resources - comms, challenges, twitters, tumblrs, etc. Tell us about where you hang out.

Well, LJ was my fannish home for years but it's been limping for ages. The only comms that I'm in that are still active are [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers and yuletide. Over here I've been doing [community profile] trope_bingo for a couple years, although from this year I've also been participating in [community profile] chocolateboxcomm and [community profile] fandom_stocking .  [community profile] rogueonekink also has an active prompt thread! :D

Does anybody really use tumblr for discussion?  *is perplexed* (But then I don't get how to discuss things as a community on twitter either. )

Day 11
In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing.


4 creators in different fandoms )
 

  Also want to signal boost for [community profile] fandom_stocking : pinch hitters needed! Sign up here if you can help out, even with just a drabble or two!

ETA: does anybody else have consistent problems getting DW to cut something properly? I STG I'm doing the correct thing in post editor mode (selecting the part I want cut, then hitting CUT, then adding the cut text in the pop up box), but then it just switches the cut tag to div for some reason? And manually replacing the final /div tag with /cut and removing the randomly inserted /cut (which somehow ends up halfway up the page?!) in html mode isn't working. ARGH. Tips? 

ETA 2: I'm deleting all div type tags and replacing with a href because at least THAT works. RAWR. I just want things to format sleek and pretty.

nrgburst: (Johanssen NoYes)
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.



Mutual pining and Mirroring )  
nrgburst: (baaaaaaa)
Day 8

In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself.

:D )



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.

Done! )

Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

Here, have 15!

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

From [personal profile] karanguni 

Let's start 2017 off in a positive way with a Pay It Forward meme. The first 6 people to comment (and more if I can manage it) will receive a surprise from me at some point in 2017 - anything from a book, a ticket, something home-grown or made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise! It will happen when the mood comes over me and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy.

(If you don't like surprises and would rather have something off a wishlist and/or some warning, let me know in your comment. The goal is to make you happy.)

If you can, post this in your own journal and pay it forward. Let's do more kind and loving things for each other in 2017, without any reason other than to make each other smile and show that we think of each other.


Er, that means you might have to give me your real address. So I'm going to screen comments here and on the LJ, just in case. Let me know if you have allergies if you would like a real surprise or if you would prefer a digital surprise!


nrgburst: (caroline loves you!)

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.


My first couple of fandoms changed the way I interacted with media- instead of just consuming, I analyzed minutely; I created something back. The AN at the end of my first fic makes me smile a little now with its bewildered: am I even allowed to write a story about somebody else's story? Is this plagiarism? Or blasphemy? I just REALLY NEEDED TO WRITE THIS OKAY DON'T SUE ME.  And all because the ending of The Bartimaeus trilogy pissed me off to no end. (I might have a slightly more mature response now. Not sure. LOL I still write fic in response to NOPE INCORRECT feelings but half the time it's because fandom is being gross instead of me expecting the most happily-ever-after ending.)

My second fandom (FFVII) was the first really interactive one- I helped oversee fic awards, logged in daily to a chat to debate meta, and wrote over 60000 words of fic. I still occasionally see two friends from that time on LJ and tumblr now, but for the most part that circle has totally dispersed.

I also have to mention TVD- this is the first fandom I was in where canon was still being made. Interview spoilers! Stalking actors on social media to figure out if they were filming! Trying to guess character arcs from episode synopses! Getting attacked on my blog after expressing anti-ship opinions nowhere near the ship space/tags! FUN TIMES. XD I don't watch or HAVE INTENSE FANNISH FEELINGS AND/OR CAPSLOCK OPINIONS anymore, but I still like to see TVD GIFsets scroll by on my dash and fandom friends squee over the way narrative arcs have played out. (I don't think that we ever truly leave fandoms, I think they just hold our interest to a lesser degree.) 

One of the sad things about fandom is that sometimes these people you have fantastic chats with will just up and disappear. I kind of wonder what they are doing now. Did fandom-famous author ever get published after flouncing? Did very young writer ever go to Uni? Are any of them dead and I just don't know it? So I guess I want to say: thank you for being in my life, for engaging with me over this great piece of media. It was a fun ride. (Also your ship is still not canon, okay.)

Hmm, I think I might have lost the plot a bit. LOL Um, here, have a list of other media that has had a formative impact on me even if I'm not particularly fannish over them:

Matilda by Roald Dahl

Star Wars (the original trilogy)

The Little Mermaid (1989)

Dragonflight and Damia by Anne McCaffrey

Star Trek: The Next Generation

Super Mario Bros.

Grey's Anatomy

Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

Every Andrew Lloyd Webber musical ever

The Joy Luck Club (1993)

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.
