Last entry for Snowflake Challenge. This has been fun and been enjoying responding to the challenges!

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.

One challenge I thought of is to try out a new fanwork challenge/community you've never done before. It can be a new Big Bang challenge, a fic exchange hosted at AO3, or something that runs yearly like Porn Battle (next round starts next week!). Maybe there's a kink meme you haven't tried yet or you've never done a remix fic before. There should be several specific fandom ones through LJ and DW. I always enjoy different fanwork challenges, memes, and communities as I get inspiration for my works through those. I think this could be fun/interesting for everyone.

Day 14: In your own space, write a love letter. Write it Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist. Share you love and squee as loud as you want to.

So yeah, this is a love letter to my f-list.

Day 13: In your own space, talk about setting yourself a fannish goal. Big or small, it doesn't matter. Some great examples include: complete a bingo, sign-up for a Big Bang, write that fic you've been thinking about for years, podfic that story that you love, make a fanmix for your fandom, post that bit of meta or reclist you keep postponing. Maybe resolve to be better at leaving feedback, or answering comments.

Day 12: In your own space, talk about what you think the future holds for fandom. What are your hopes and dreams for fandom? Do you have any predictions about what the next five years holds for fandom?

Day 11: Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing or trope. Try creating a different kind of fanwork. Or check out some types of fanworks that are new to you.

This is where I check out a Homestuck pairing for this challenge )

Day 9: In your own space, rec at least 3 fanworks you thought you wouldn't like (because they weren't your fandom or they pushed against your boundaries or you thought you just wouldn't be interested) but you ended up loving.

Day 10: 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.

Day 8: In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are.

Pretty much almost everyone at Snowflake Challenge including myself find this day's challenge pretty intimidating. Lately I've been avoiding love memes as I feel bad for wanting appreciation while not giving back (or not enough) to others.

But yeah, I guess a little "pick me up" doesn't hurt once in a while. If any of you feel I deserve some good comments, go right ahead (anon should be on if you prefer that).

Day 7: In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something.

So I decided to write a quick Sleepy Hollow fic for this challenge. There are probably some awkward phrasing here and there so I don't mind if any of you guys point those out.

Title: Faster Than Letters
Fandom: Sleepy Hollow
Rating: G
Characters: Ichabod Crane, Abbie Mills
Warning: None
Summary: Abbie teaches Ichabod texting and email, and surprisingly he catches on fast.
Notes: For Snowflake Challenge Day 7 and inspired by this prompt.

From what I understand, it's like letters but much faster. )

Day 5: 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.

Day 3: In your own space, post a rec 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. 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 who maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

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!"

It doesn't have to be anything complex - it can be feedback for a fanwork or discussing something you might have in common or even simply admiring their icon. The point is to reach out to someone you normally wouldn't and connect with them, even if it's only for the briefest moment.

Already mentioned in the thread that I did. The feedbacks I did are for a Roy/Riza story and a Pokemon one. I do recommend checking those out!

Day 2: In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them.

Thanks to [ profile] lunaria_kitty, I'm going to try [community profile] snowflake_challenge. Basically it's a challenge to celebrate fandom activity. Let's do this!

(I realized this is the second post where I link my fics, so I apologize for that. This was unintentional, haha.)

Day One: 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.

FMA, Pokemon, Homestuck )
