Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner

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.

Haha always difficult this one. I'm always more happy with my recent work than the older ones, so these are all fairly new.

The first one I posted very recently, this one (tumblr link) of Harry and Draco. It's slightly NSFW, but non-explicit.

Also quite happy with the drawing I made for the tropes fest this year. My trope was time travel (Tumblr link).

Lastly, I made a few drawings for the bookseries 'All for the game' by Nora Sakavic. The one I'm happiest with is probably this one of Andrew.


Day 2

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

I can't say anything other than Harry Potter here. Even though I entered fandom many years after I first read the books, they have influenced my life greatly both now and then. For one thing, it was the books that really opened my eyes to the fantasy genre. Another thing, it probably contributed a great deal to getting me to read books in English. After having to wait several months for the translation of Goblet of Fire, there was no way I could go through the same with The Order of the Phoenix. So I fumbled my way through it at age 14, and haven't looked back since. And then finally, it made me discover fandom and meet so many people that I love so dearly and I can't imagine my life without it.


Day 03

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.

The biggest one here is a real life one, that I won't put in the details of here in a public post, but I'm going to make some big changes in my life, career wise, and I really look forward to that. Other than that I want to keep playing Rugby that I just started with, and get the hang of that. Fandom wise I want to be better at being consistently active, as well as further develop my drawing abilities.


Ugh I had a wisdom tooth removed today. Like proper surgery like. They put a cape over my entire body, with only my mouth sticking out and all. And now I'm halfway between numb face and serious pain. Hopefully the super heavy pain killers I got will help. Good to be done with, though!

Oh my gosh, good luck with your wisdom tooth recovery. Mine wasn't bad but I also knew someone who was out of it for like a week. *sends good vibes*

Harry Potter is a big influence on so many people, but I always forget it is also a good introduction to fantasy! So thanks for sharing that.

Good luck with your career changes, and I hope the painkillers help!

Oh no wisdom tooth extraction, I hope you won't be in too much pain. *huggles*

Yeah, I've had the two upper ones out before and that wasn't a problem, but apparently the bone in the lower jaw is harder or something? It was a lot worse at least D: I'm sure it'll be fine soon, though! Good to be done at any rate. *hugs*

Ouch, it all sounds horrible, especially the infection part. Pain in the head (no matter where) is the worst. Really hope they gave you some good drugs.

Yeah the infection was rather nasty. They temporarily fixed it with some flushing and stuff before Christmas, but the dentist said it would come back unless I got the tooth out. So here I am! Good to be done, though :)

Oh, I hope you feel better soon <3 Darn those wisdom teeth!

Ugh, yes those useless wisdom teeth! Only trouble with them. Thank you <3

Great choice of self recs, all thumbs up!!! And now that you mentioned it, I started reading in English because of the exact same reason - waiting for the translation of the next book just wasn't on. Though it was one of Elizabeth George's early crime novels, I think.

Yay for painkillers! (You know you read too much fanfiction when extraction makes you think of Inception/Arthur/Eames...)

Thank you! Self recs are always a bit scary. And yes! Waiting for good books is a great motivation for learning to read in English ;)

Haha the painkillers saved me! Except also made me quite useless for the rest of the day. Although I assume the pain would've done the same and been a lot worse.

Oh, darling. I'm sorry about your wisdom tooth removal. I went through that a while back, it was horrible. I hope you have some pain killers to help you and don't swell. Though if I remember correctly, it might swell more the day after, just in case it scares you. I did scare me. ^^

*hugs gently*

I love your self-recs! <33333333 I'm shocked you didn't include the Christmas postcard! *lol* But then, I have too many favourites arts by you, so I'm glad I don't have to pick just the three. ;)

Yeah, it was a lot worse than when I removed the upper ones, but apparently it usually is. And it wasn't out yet either, which probably didn't help. But I got an infection there just before Christmas, so I had to get it done. Thank you for the warning! The dentist said the same - that the pain and swelling could get worse for up to two days. I'm armed with prescription drugs to get me through it lmao! *hugs*

Thank you!!! I'm glad you liked them. Even without the Christmas card ;) I'm so thrilled you liked that one. I made it entirely with you in mind ♥

Just roll around in the woozy uselessness! Glad to hear it went okay though, and that you probably won't have any more horrible mouth explosions. Hope you're feeling better tomorrow <3

Haha yeah that's basically been my day :P And ughhhhhh the mouth explosion! Don't remind me. Ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew. Some things you really don't want inside your mouth! Hopefully I'm safe from that now. Thank you, sweetie <3

I hope your ouchie tooth situation doesn't pain you for too long! And your most recent art might be my all-time fave of yours. 😍😍

Even if I'm not in that fandom I really like your Andrew Minyard too :) Very nice strokes and colours!
