So I managed all of two entries for this before Life Happened. Where was I?

Okay, actually, a merge of Days 4 & 5 - a wish, and trying something new.

Seeking Tolkien recs!

I've loved The Hobbit & LotR since I was very small, and have seen the films countless times, but never really ventured into the fandom at all. The recent resurgence of interest has made me want to explore a bit! Any fanworks, any characters. Things you've made yourself, existing rec lists/bookmarks, anything would be lovely.

Particularly interested in: vids, fic, icons, anything women-centric, team/ensemble-y things, anything that's not too unrelentingly bleak, also Legolas/Gimli because tumblr's given me a serious case of the feelings there.

Post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

Here are some things I've enjoyed recently!


Five times the Paternoster gang had to call the Doctor (Doctor Who, Jenny/Vastra, Strax, Eleven, spoilers for 7x06) by [ profile] gnimaerd
Five incidents which required the Doctor’s intervention; in which the Doctor is somebody’s best man and sort of a nanny, Jenny discovers Harry Potter and Strax does not like when his mothers comrades are fighting.

Completely adorable, with some lovely guest appearances.

cup of kindness (Avengers, Bruce/Tony/Pepper) by [personal profile] thingswithwings

It's NYE, and superhero adorableness ensues. I love the supporting cast of characters here, and it's all extremely heartwarming, with lots of lovely character moments including Tony stressing out by actually caring about whether people have a good time or not. *_*

#TeamJanet (Avengers, Darcy/Janet) by [personal profile] aria

... it's NYE, and superhero adorableness ensues again! :D :D :D I confess to knowing next to nothing about Janet van Dyne, but reading this story reallyyyy makes me want to fix that, because she seems wonderful. Darcy's POV here is hilarious and very sweet.


One Mississippi (Doctor Who, ensemble) by [personal profile] kaydeefalls

I love DW vids that span the entirety of the New Who era, and this does a particularly wonderful job of pulling all kinds of visual and emotional parallels between the different parts of this one great story.

Red Football (Merlin, Gwen, Morgana, others) by [personal profile] sophinisba

In which the women of Merlin fight back against their narratives. Very satisfying!

So [community profile] snowflake_challenge has its own comm this year, running different prompts for the next 15 days to encourage fannish love/discussion/etc. Yay!

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.

Okay I might cheat a little and do four - one fanwork per major fandom. A tour through my fannish history!

Harry Potter:

I Know Where The Summer Goes (Sirius & Black Family)

♥♥♥ Sirius! ♥♥♥ I started off my fannish life hanging out in the Marauders & Remus/Sirius corner of HP fandom, and I will always have a giant soft spot for that era and those characters.


I Heard A Whisper (The Way I Might Have Been) (Jack/Ianto)

So there was a time when there was this ridiculous, cracktastic, not always particularly good sci-fi show with queerness everywhere and I loved it. (... we do not speak of series 3.)


Vid: Antebellum (Gwen/Morgana)

The time where I loved two characters more than the show ever did. ;_;

Doctor Who

Vid: Love is Cool (Eleven & the Ponds)

Because working with [personal profile] purplefringe and vidding montages of some of my favourite characters hugging is one of my very favourite things to do. <3
