I finally got some recs posted for the rest of the Snowflake Challenge! Day 2 is here (22 recs, if I'm counting right, in six fandoms + a panfandom rec), and Day 6 is here (2 recs in two fandoms). As you can tell, I got a little carried away with Day 2.

Day 8 asks us to talk about something we're good at. Read more... )

I promise--I honestly, sincerely promise--that I am going to catch up on several other bits of the Snowflake Challenge (probably not the social-interaction-with-strangers ones, because social anxiety woooo), and I actually have a detailed recs post half-coded for Day Two (rec other people's fic, especially rareish fic) which I keep getting distracted from by other things (I'm still going through everyone else's self-rec lists from Day One, as well as real life and other fannish activities); this is not turning into an All About Me thing, I promise.

That said, Day 7: create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive.

(Whether or not you've been participating, and whether or not you investigate my own wishlist, I also would like to encourage you to check out everyone else's wishlists (not all of them if you'd rather not, of course! maybe just click a few at random?) to see if there's anything that someone else would like that you're willing and able to provide.)

I'm actually really bad at asking for things. [fandoms: all (1); Stargate Atlantis (1); Marvel comics (1)] )

I'm still struggling with the reclist for Day 2 of the snowflake challenge--the generalized reclist with a special focus on less-popular fanworks--because every time I think I've decided on what to do I get a sudden urge to add more fics. Therefore, have the Day 6 reclist first: rec at least three fanworks that I thought I wouldn't like but that I ended up loving [or admiring].

I only have two, because I'm bad at reading outside my comfort zone and I pretty much never go into fics expecting not to like them unless they are outside my comfort zone.

I have, here, provided warnings. The fics--both are fics--are recced in decreasing order of how triggering I expect the main reason-I-thought-I-wouldn't-like-it may be to the most potential readers, and skip links have been provided at the beginning of this post after the main warnings so that, if you're using a screenreader or just would rather not scroll past, you can do so more easily. I have tried to put enough space between recs that you will be able to avoid seeing the first one either from the beginning or from the end, and the second one from the middle; my apologies to everyone inconvenienced by this. Two recs. )

This is several days late because reccing fics is something that makes me irrationally anxious ("what if people judge my taste?") and I consume very few other fanworks. That said, here's Day 2 of the Snowflake Challenge: post a rec to at least three fanworks (I, uh, got a bit lot carried away) that I didn't create, with special focus on fanworks less likely to be praised. There are a lot more things I could rec, but the reason this took so long was I kept dithering and adding things and then subtracting them and then adding more things...

1 panfandom; 4 Marvel (3 comics, 1 film); 5 Merlin; 4 Star Trek (1 AOS, 2 DS9, 1 general); 1 Stargate SG-1; 4 Stargate Atlantis; 3 Supernatural )

If any of my links don't work/go to the wrong place/etc., I am profoundly sorry and will fix it as soon as possible.

We're also supposed to drop a link to the authors informing them they've been recced, but I'm getting more than a little anxious just thinking about that, so I'm going to skip that step for now.

Also: if you enjoyed any of these fanworks and would like similar recs and/or more information about the canon, I'd be delighted to provide. (Well, in the case of the recs, I'd be delighted to provide if I can; some of them are going to be difficult or impossible to find similar ones.)

The Fandom Snowflake Challenge (for celebrating ourselves as members of fandom)

Day One: post a rec for at least three fanworks 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've mostly tried not to repeat myself from the year-end meme I did yesterday, but it was hard because most of the fics I've written were, um, written this year. But. Beyond this cut there be recs. )
