Day 7

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something.

Day 06

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include -a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.


1. Coverart/banners to use when cross-posting my fic to tumblr (kind of like this one, just, you know, not quite as amateurish xD), because just posting the AO3 link kind of doesn't draw any attention at all.

Ideally, I'd love something that thematically goes together with each new fic or pairing I write. I have a gazillion of WIPs and ideas, so there would be a lot to choose from. Fandoms could be DCU (Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, etc.), Raven Cycle (Kavinsky, Ronan), and hopefully Sherlock soon too.

Suggestions:
  • Something involving the aftermath of New Year's. (My most current WIP.)

  • Something to do with Harley, Selina and/or grief.

  • Roadtrip au

  • Fingers to the head, pointed like a gun: Arkhamverse, Harley and Jason. WIP.

  • Artist AU, like Hidden here below the fracture (Raven Cycle, Kavinsky, Proko, perhaps Ronan if I continue).

  • Stripper AU. (For my rewrite of I dance like I got diamonds. Suicide Squad, Harley/Joker.)

  • Demon AU, maybe.

  • Something for Trinity Blood's Esther and Dietrich.

  • Or just a one-size-fits-all banner with just a crooked spoon on it, haha?


Sidenote on Harley: I prefer her with blond hair, but make an exception for Injustice-verse Harley's red and black ;D



2. Someone to contact when I need new graphics for new projects I'm working on. Alternately, someone to walk me through the creation of above-mentioned banners in about a month or two.



3. A writing buddy/enabler for Raven Cycle (Kavinsky-centric, I'm warning ya) or such DCU fandoms such as Injustice, Arkhamverse, Suicide Squad, assorted Batcanon, etc (Harley Quinn-centric). Maaaybe eventually one for Teen Wolf (Stiles-centric, but no Sterek), but we'll see about that. And for D.Gray-man, eventually.

I have an absolutely wonderful writing buddy in [personal profile] neurotoxia. We ping-pong ideas, discuss things we are confused about, beta for each other, and just generally do a lot of hand-holding. Hands-down my favourite time was when we were both obsessed with Sherlock and a tattoo AU of N's making, and were just spawning idea after idea for it. Some of which even made it into writing!

Unfortunately, our fandom obsessions have shifted and we don't write that much for each other anymore. Yet through that I noticed how important it is for my idea creation and especially for my output if I have people close to me who are excited about That Thing I am working on.

Now, this is probably a more utopian wish, as I couldn't even really make use of it right away. Too much RL stuff taking priority. /flops



ETA: Totally forgot! 4. Comment on a work that doesn't have any comments yet. Yes, it's always nice to get more love on an already well-loved fic. But sometimes it's those fics that nobody seems to care about that are the creator's secret favourites.

Last year's wish list.

I'm really looking forward to going through everyone else's wish lists! :D Will probably be bookmarking them all to read later, though.

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I chose to go with works I created in 2016 that I feel no one saw.


1. she truly believes the lies (Batman: Arkham Knight - Christina Bell/Harleen Quinzel, T; 2,450 words)
Ordinary People AU. Nearly a year after their breakup, Harley is forced to contact her ex Christina with a special request: to pretend to be her girlfriend once more.

Reason: I generally feel like I'm no good with details, especially of the family background variety. In this, however, I managed to create a family context and had fun doing so. Since this is an AU, you don't need to know Arkham Knight specifically. You can just imagine Christina as a female Joker.



2. digging out stumps of old resentments (Injustice: Gods Among Us - Kate Kane/Harleen Quinzel, G; 250 words)
Noir AU, Prohibition. A rather unusual woman seeks out Kate for her investigative skills.

Reason: I have a fondness for the image of Harley as femme fatale in this.



3. Hidden here below the fracture (The Raven Cycle - Joseph Kavinsky/Ronan Lynch, Joseph Kavinsky/Prokopenko, M; 3278 words)
Artist AU. The one in which K tries to banish Lynch from his head. Through art. And fails.

Reason: Here I feel no one read this because (it's tagged Rovinsky... but Ronan doesn't even show up and it's one-sided attraction!) my summary sounds too cracky, which this thing is really, really not. It's a bit more moody and frustrated, because K has an art block. I'm just really fond of creative geniuses going ballistics because the one thing they feel defines them is not working for them anymore, and them not acknowledging the real reason they're frustrated.

Day 13

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


1. Anything But That (31817 words) by Skalidra
Chapters: 5/5
Fandom: DCU, Batman - All Media Types
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Dick Grayson/Jason Todd
Characters: Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Bruce Wayne, Tim Drake
Additional Tags: Sex Pollen, Trope Subversion, No Sex, Hurt/Comfort, Developing Relationship, Extremely Dubious Consent
Summary:

When Dick wakes up, tied to a chair and with one of the worst hangovers of his life, it's not the greatest situation. When Jason tells him that he'd been dosed with Poison Ivy's pollen, it gets worse. But the terrible situation isn't an excuse to accuse Jason of taking advantage, especially because Jason's feelings run deeper than Dick understands.



2. cw: torture



3. Epic Rap Battles of History. There's so many, I can't decide which to rec. My favourites:

- Deadpool vs Boba Fett (You're a Deathstroke rip-off)
- Son Goku vs Superman (Your powers have been boring since the 19-fucking-40s)
- Santa vs Moses

Day 6

In your own space, create your own challenge. What’s something you want to see more people doing in fandom? Is there something 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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


So, I'll be uninspired yet again and repeat what others have written:

1. Try something new. (In life, in fandom, wherever. Try a new recipe, a book, or a new activity.)

2. Work on a WIP.

3. Leave feedback on a work that has no comments yet. (It doesn't have to be in-depth, something simple as "I enjoyed this!" will certainly make the creator's day.)

Onto the reading (ganked from [livejournal.com profile] doreyg):

Just finished: Rann-Thanagar War. The last real book I read was Good Morning, Midnight by Jean Rhys.

Currently reading: The OMAC Project. Currently stalled because I can't find Superman v2 #219. Also been reading a Kindle book called The Memory Effect during commutes.

Coming up: Once I get back to the library, I want to see if they have Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz available.

Silly, as usual:

Caught a lightweight lightning seed (250 words) by crookedspoon
Fandom: Injustice: Gods Among Us
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Pamela Isley/Harleen Quinzel
Characters: Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy
Additional Tags: Arguing, Silly, Community: femslash100
Series: Part 11 of A Wild Patience Has Taken Me, Part 18 of Gen Prompt Bingo
Summary:

"DCU: Harley/Ivy - Harley-Davidson" @ femslash100's drabbletag6.




My offer/request from Day 2 still stands: link me all your dear author letters or fandom stockings or prompts you'd like to see filled.

Fandoms: DC (Injustice, various Bat-media, the Arkham-verse, Suicide Squad, Young Justice, DCAU, etc...), Sherlock, Bleach, D.Gray-man, KHR (Mukuro & gang). Maybe others I've written before.

Alternately, you can give me a pairing for any of these prompts and I'll write you a drabble.

Day 03

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.

Admittedly, this challenge is the hardest and the one I like doing the least. It's wonderful to read about other creators' cherished works, because that love is catching. It's what fandom is -- or should be at least -- all about. Sharing what we love. So for me, my works are more about sharing the love of a character, a pairing, a kink or whatever. So boiling it down to specific works is rather hard.

So, I mentioned The Chrysanthemum Vow the previous years; I think that one's getting old. So here's three of my least-viewed things I wrote in 2015 that I actually like. They're all very niche, so that explains the lack of exposure.

1. I'd cut your name in my heart (Thrillkiller: Hayley Fitzpatrick/Bianca Steeplechase; T)
Summary: Had not Bianca's sinful smile on the tabloids caught her eye, Hayley would never have imagined herself slipping into Gotham's criminal underbelly.
This is DC Elseworlds' Harley/fem!Joker which I just had to write.

2. It's bigger than the sum of us (DC Animated Universe: Harleen Quinzel/Wally West; M)
Summary: Dating her is really super, if only he could shake the niggling doubts about her motives.
Hi, I have a problem and it's Harley Quinn prompts. I wanna fill them all. And through the writing of this, poof, I gained another OTP.

3. contagion (a landscape of twilight and thorns) (Flashpoint (Comics)/Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox: Joker/Yo-Yo; T)
Summary: It's blood that leads her to the Joker, and madness that binds.
Yes, I have a thing for female Jokers 8D

Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

1. A writing buddy with whom to share and develop ideas (mine and their own) and to geek about fandom in general.

2. Encouragement for my WIPs. (Mostly DC atm. Arkhamverse and Suicide Squad. Then there's a slew of AUs.)

3. Writing requests or help choosing which of my many prompts to tackle next. If we have fandoms in common, do link me to your Dear Author letters, your requests at prompt memes, ficathons, etc. It hurts me that there are so many lovely prompts out there that go unfilled.

ETA: 4. People who'd let me remix their stuff.

My main fandom is DC at the moment, with a heavy emphasis on Harley Quinn. (I like Injustice, the Arkhamverse, Thrillkiller, Young Justice, and so much more). Other fandoms include Sherlock BBC, Arrow, The Flash (TV), Bleach, DGM, ...
