Day 7: In your own space, create a fanwork.

I don't have a completed fanwork to post but since I spent all day yesterday working on a WIP (and that's on the docket for today too), I'm going to call this one complete.

From Twitter: ✍️ Weekend Goal: barf out the shitty first draft of my WIP no matter how much my personal life suffers.

Day 8: In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself.

Sure, let's go:

- I'm funny. In person and in my writing, when I mean to be. But now that I'm on the spot, I can't think of anything funny to say.

- I'm scary. I have what I call the "fuck-off field" which usually keeps people from randomly talking to me or sitting next to me if there's a seat free somewhere else. Since I'm also an introvert, that's just fine with me! (I have noticed it waning as I age so I'm trying to improve my resting murder-face this year.)

- I dance at my standing desk while I work. I currently have my own office, so that works out well. Usually it's happy dancing but I have noticed some angry dancing from time to time.

And that's enough self-aggrandizement for this morning!

[community profile] snowflake_challenge Day 6: 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.

This is difficult for me because I am not an asker. And I'm definitely a must-do-everything-myself-er. (It was years before I was comfortable even asking my partner to make me a cup of tea.)

* Invitation from an artist to collaborate on a comic or doujinshi. (I can't imagine having the nerve to ask an artist this.)

* Concrit on my writing. It's not something I would ever offer unsolicited to anyone but would love to have so I can see where I need to improve. But it's a big time commitment to ask for and also makes me feel like I'm being, I don't know, presumptuous, maybe?

* Art of Mitsui from Slam Dunk as a hockey player -- in a hockey sweater, with proper hockey hair, and all his missing teeth showing. (Maybe with Kogure in the background as his manager!) I've been daydreaming this one for years!

* For people to feel free to make requests of me. :)

I also put up a Transformative Works statement on my AO3 profile and my LJ/DW sticky posts; should have done that ages ago.

[Sorry for two posts in a row -- I highly doubt I'll reach this volume again!]

Day 5: post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create

Vid: Blank Space by [personal profile] purplefringe and [personal profile] such_heights
Doctor Who, music: Blank Space - Taylor Swift
The AO3 page embed isn't working any longer but you can still view on Tumblr

The epic story of one of the most rewarding ships of all time, Doctor/Master. It covers all of canon (not including last season) so you can see all their best moments, all the parallels and call-backs.


Vid: Celebrating 50 Years of American Doctor Who by Sam Vestey
Watch on YouTube
Fan-made vid based on a BuzzFeed post: What If “Doctor Who” Was American?

This is put together so well, it really captures the DW spirit for me. I'm impressed by how well the clips work! It's Burgess Meredith that really elevates it to something special.


Fic: What She Said (722 words) by Aurum
Fandom: Hajime no Ippo | Fighting Spirit
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Relationships: Aoki Masaru/Kimura Tatsuya
Additional Tags: Humor
Summary: "Dude, I'm so sorry," Aoki cries. "If only you had tits, I would do you so hard."

This was written for my prompt in last year's SASO and I love it so very, very much. This is 100% how Kimura and Aoki would be with each other.

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.

I did this on the friending meme! And I still have a couple pages there to go through looking for more shared-interest folks. (Especially Yuri!!! on Ice right now.)

Welcome to everyone who added me! I definitely intended to add everyone back and I'm going to take a look at that later on to make sure. (I also have some people who I didn't sub back to ages ago because I was following them on LJ so I want to get that sorted too.) I mainly subscribed without giving access because I almost never make friends-locked posts.

It's always okay to drop me again if my content is not to your liking, no explanations necessary. Unless you say otherwise, I'll assume it's not personal and you'd still have a drink with me if we met at a con.

I've been in fandom since the X-Files days and I've been in Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Buffy & Angel, Harry Potter, and other fandoms before dropping into Prince of Tennis (my forever fandom) and discovering my sports series soul. Current sports series are Haikyuu!! and All Out!! and I'm looking forward to the next YowaPeda series. (I also love tokusatsu, especially older Kamen Rider series, but haven't connected to many people over that.)

Over the long term, I'm hoping to post a couple times a week about my fandom interests. Typically, that's sports anime/manga with a bit of Star Wars, Doctor Who, etc. I, like many, many others, am currently obsessed with Yuri!!! on Ice so that will feature prominently, I'm sure, at least for a while.

If you want to chat on Twitter ([twitter.com profile] prillalar ) too, that's cool! I haven't been adding people on Tumblr because I'm trying to cut my time there down.

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year.

- Write more fic and at least some meta. I've committed to [community profile] getyourwordsout  for 75K this year, so I'm hoping to meet or surpass that.

- Post and interact more on DW (and still LJ). I've reconnected to some old friends and met new people through the multi-fandom friending meme and I'm excited to get to know everyone better!

- Not let fandom take over my whole life. I tend to be a bit obsessive with my hobbies and while I understand moderation in all things intellectually, it's hard to internalize.

- Seriously think about whether I need to make a career change.

Going to try to do [community profile] snowflake_challenge this year! I didn't hop on it in time to do day 1, maybe I'll catch up later.

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul.

The X-Files. It's a show that changed the way we do television. It gave me a love of media about the supernatural and conspiracy theories. It started a local social event that's been going on for nearly 20 years.

And one day, I thought: I bet there's fanfiction for this show.

I'd read a little fic previously, for ST:TNG, but just randomly. With TXF, I got onto Usenet, mailing lists, starting writing my own fic, and made friendships that I have to this day.

The X-Files gave me fandom. And I'm thankful every day.
