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
Fandom: DCU, Batman - All Media Types
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
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

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
Same as every year:
1. Write one more word than last year.
2. Post at least one fic every month.
3. Finish a WIP.
Day 1 (DW) - Day 2: Wish list (DW | LJ) - Day 3: Self-recs (DW | LJ) - Day 4: New fanwork (DW | LJ) - Day 5: Feedback - Day 6: Challenge (DW | LJ) - Day 8: Interact
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.)
Day 1 (DW) - Day 2: Wish list (DW | LJ) - Day 3: Self-recs (DW | LJ) - Day 4: New fanwork (DW | LJ) - Day 5: Comment
Onto the reading (ganked from 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.
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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
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
"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 1 (DW) - Day 2 (DW | LJ) - Day 3 (DW | LJ)
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
Day 1 (DW) - Day 2 (DW | LJ)
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
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, ...
