Create a fannish wish list.

1. For there to be an active fan community outside of tumblr (sorry I just don't like how it works)

2.It's hard for me to do this since most of my fandoms are old and have run their course. I've seen and done most of the things I'd like to see or do in fandom

3. That said I'd still love to see someone fan-vid Season 3 Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Alice's Cooper's School's Out

4. I'm always up for my Spike/Drusilla fiction in BtVS and Connor positive stories from Angel and Roy/Riza fic from Fullmetal Alchemist

5. I'd like to see some good Thomas fiction from Dresden Files (just not Thomas/Harry as incest isn't my thing)

6. I'd like to see how Sam found out Dean watches hentai

7. It'd be nice to see Vinland Saga even have a fandom

8. Speculation on just what made Kylo Ren so twisted, emo and whiny.

I'm slow getting off the mark this year but that's because I'm working on a new class starting next week and in seven days there have been four deaths in my friends and family circle. Yeah I know. Surreal and sad.

Day 1 - Talk about why you're participating in Snowflake.

I've done this challenge for the past few years. I guess I enjoy talking about myself. this isn't my primary fandom journal and it tends to languish except at the holidays. Outside of [community profile] allbingo that I started mid-year it doesn't get the play it should. I should at least do a little more with it but I'm glad to have the bingo prompt community to keep me writing.

I like this challenge since almost everything I do is fandom based. I would like to do other things too as much as I love fandom.




I'm playing catch up with the challenge. Today is Day 7, share a bit of canon. I'm not sure what canon I'm supposed to share but here goes spoilers for the force awakens )

This is for the [community profile] allbingo community

I have two fills actually. I used the novel I had just finished in the first week of nano, Blood Red Roulette (m/m vampires) or my nano novel Behind Blue Eyes (m/m Sci-Fi) So all fills are scenes from the novels.

see the fills here. Some might be questionable for being safe for work )

Finished my bingo for [community profile] allbingo

here is my bingo card. I took a bingo straight across the top.

You can find my original fiction fills on my author blog here

As for the fanfic fills, I can't share them entirely as they're technically chapters in my FMA big bang but here are a couple snippets.

Fun: “Thanks Winry but no. I ate at the Mustangs'. And I studied my anatomy lessons last night,” Al said.

“Yeah probably Miao-Yin's anatomy.” Ed smirked and Winry raised her eyebrows.

Al simply yawned again and shot him an obscene gesture.

“That jerk Mustang is wearing off on you,” Ed huffed.
...

Al took a deep drink of his coffee. “He's not that bad, Ed. Actually he's a lot of fun most nights. His sister Jun was over and we all danced for hours.”



Relax: : Roy bounced up and darted down the stairs to the large game room where Jun was drilling Meara on complex dance moves with an eye on bringing her into her group. Li-Ying and Miao-Yin were trying to get Dev to simply move to the beat. The room was perfect for entertaining with a pool table and bar on one side and a fireplace, comfy couches and a book shelf on the other. In between was a tiled dance floor. It was the perfect place to relax.

Here's my no thought put into it bingo card for the August challenge at [community profile] allbingo but since it's pretty much anything goes, it'll be fine.

relax outdoors wine or chocolate? rejuvenation fun

a long nap read a good book GUILT FREE hobbies reminiscing

My card is here. I went straight down the B column

Midnight Kiss and Champagne were both worked into my short story Boldly Go which was written for a project to celebrate the SCOTUS Gay Marriage decision and to promote LGBT charities. You'll be able to see it at [profile] jana_denardo on Livejournal on August 19th. It is original fiction. The world's geekiest wedding in Vegas.

The rest of the prompts, baking, winter solstice & ice are all part of my Fullmetal Alchemist bigbang which can't be shared (and at this point is never going to get done but at least I managed to use these!)

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


I'm too tired for any fun challenges but how about this, I challenge you to leave more feedback. Any more we get so little feedback compared to years ago. Even if it's just a 'Hey I liked this' that is so much better than the echo of empty inbox. Make a creator happy. And if you hated it or it's not your thing, I challenge you to just move on (and this is not just a fanfic thing. Goodreads is plagued with people who just run around and put things like 'werewolves suck' on werewolf stories).

And I challenge you to say thanks to the people who took the time to give you a little feedback (man I wished there was a PM thing on AO3 so I could thank the people who give me kudos. I've recently had a few read dozens of stories and give me kudos and I couldn't thank them). I've seen people say they're 'too busy' to say thanks. No, you probably aren't. Let's spread a little kindness and gratitude.

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

As I sit here thinking about the drive back to the funeral tomorrow (a 4 hour drive) I figured I'll just be sadder so why not do this and distract myself. I'll use the three fans I mentioned yesterday.

I can't pick just one of [personal profile] evil_little_dog's fanworks so here, have a ton of them. Evil Little Dog’s AO3 page

From [personal profile] kiramaru7 Thranduil & Legolas and poke around her blog for much more.

And from [personal profile] seta_suzume how about a little Alphonse and Ran Fan and check her blog out for more fic and art.

Day 12 - In your own space, talk about what you bring to fandom. It can be something tangible, or not.

You mean besides my awesome self? :-) I bring fiction and a lot of it. I've written hundreds of stories. I bring the willingness to help. I've beta reader for more people than I can easily remember and I've functioned as cheerleader for them as well. I love to give feedback. If I've read a story I will leave feedback even if it's just a "I really liked this" because any more not enough people do that and it matters.


Day 13 - In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing.

I don't have time to say a lot as I'm running around prepping things for work but I do have three creators I wanted to talk about. [personal profile] evil_little_dog, [personal profile] seta_suzume and [personal profile] kiramaru7.

All three of them write in a wide variety of fandoms. Seta and Kira also do a lot of fan art too. (ELD draws but I haven't seen her put any of it on line) They are active fans and more importantly they're all very nice people who are fun to talk to.

Day 11 - In your own space, post a rec for fannish and/or creative resources.

Just a drive-by posting for this as I'm working on a grant presentation for a workshop so I can get it done before I have to leave for grandma's funeral.

One is seekerville that my friend ES introduced me to. It's more romance related but most of the writing posts can be used for any genre and I figure a good many fan ficcers might have pro aspirations. Even if you don't, good writing can start here.

Terrible Minds is partially a writing blog, partially a guest spot for many authors and part the ramblings of Chuck Wendig. There is a lot of inspiration to be found here and a lot of cussing, just saying.


writing resources a link page for fan fic and writing in general.

Hope they help.

Day 10



Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or check out some fanworks that are new to you.


I wasn't going to do much with this because I knew I was driving back to my place today and then my grandmother died today. So I'm a little bit adrift and doing this gives me something to do (though I might not have it in me to do the last few days). I'm only putting this up because I happened to do a new to me story for [profile] 12_daysofficmas so I have it at the ready.

This is for Vinland Saga a historical Viking manga (fairly well researched). I'm enjoying it but I think this is one of the ones I was talking about last night. I don't foresee a huge volume of fanfic from me for it.

Also Thorfinn is the young fella in my icon.

Silent Night

Day 9
In your own space, talk about what surprises you about fandom. It could be a pairing or fandom you never thought you'd like. A fanwork type you never knew existed.


I think that what surprises memost is that elusive quality that explains why we're drawn to one fandom and not another even though the source material has stuff we like. Or even the degrees to which we're drawn to our respective fandoms. There are fandoms that I can easily crank out dozens, if not hundreds of stories of any length and on the other hand, there are those that I get out a few drabbles and never have another bunny again. Points to my Vinland Saga icon. I like this manga very much but I don't see it catching my muse on fire.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Fullmetal Alchemist, Saiyuki, Elfquest & Star Trek I have written volumes (especially the first two on the list). I can't tell you what it is about those vs my many other fandoms that really got the muse going. Some do, some don't. I've been hanging in on fandom for 37 years now. From paper zines to forums to email groups to blogs, websites and now even a podcast or two.

What isn't a surprise is the creativity of the fans.

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.



I'm not usually one for these sorts of things. I always have flashbacks to second grade after I spent ALL that time on a Valentine's Day card recepticle (i.e. a shoebox covered with hearts) and I got NONE. 40 years later and I'm still crushed by that. But here it is, my love meme. Am I awesome?
