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.


- I always dream that someone will be inspired by my art to write something. So first wish - fic for my art.

- Ginny/Luna fic!

- I'm a very default icon kind of gal, but maybe it would be fun to have some for special occasions? Not character icons, but reaction icons sort of? Or funny ones?

Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Soo, my reading lately has mostly consisted of Erised and some original mm novels, so I'm gonna rec my own gift as well as some of my other favourites from the fest and some arts from Tumblr. I'm still FAR from finished reading Erised, though, so there might be some amazing ones I've yet to read to. Also so much amazingness in everything there in general?

I'll just put in a general rec of all things Erised, art and fic. Because that fest is always so good. So so good.

Title: Into My Heart
Author: Anonymous
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco (dur) with a side of Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~19,000
Warnings: None
Content/Enticements: friends with benefits, UST
Summary: No strings…easy. Right? Unless you're Draco Malfoy and you're having sex with Harry Potter.

My thoughts: This was my gift \o/ It's a friends with benefits story, which is one of my favourite tropes. There's such an explosive chemistry between Harry and Draco, and so much pining from Draco. Some great side characters too, in their friends. Loved their friendships.

-----

Title: Bound To You
Author: Anonymous
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,000
Warnings: None
Content/Enticements: Accidental Bonding, Cursed Bonding, Curse Breaker!Draco, Cartographer!Harry, Unusual Careers, Lots of sass, Mild angst, Pining, Slow burn.
Summary: Hag magic is capricious and unruly, and Harry and Draco are bound to stay by each other’s side until they can solve the riddle. In between long car trips, misty rain, and midnight star charts, they begin to understand each other.


My thoughts: Wow this story has such a cool premise, and it explores so many interesting things wrt magic and careers. Harry and Draco is bonded to a curse, and the way the curse works is so different and creepy and interesting and the author does such a great job in exploring Harry and Draco's developing relationship through it. So much cleverness in this story.

-----

Title: The Loathly Worm
Author: Anonymous
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~12,000
Warnings: See Erised post
Content/Enticements: Secret identities, evil ghosts, and a Loathly Worm. Oh, and the power of True Love!
Summary: When Draco Malfoy is forced to go undercover among the remaining Death Eaters in the aftermath of the war, the last person he expects to find there is Harry Potter.

My thoughts: Another very cool premise, with some really interesting takes on magic. And the story is told in such a different and interesting way too, sort of with flashbacks after the fact. Harry and Draco are both undercover in a Death Eater camp after the war, and are drawn to each other even not knowing who the other is at first. The story is intriguing and suspenseful and I love all the interesting details and their developing relationship.

-----

Title: A Ghost in the Garden
Author: Anonymous
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~27,000
Warnings: See Erised post
Content/Enticements: Aurors, casefic, partners, pining, awkward bed sharing, sexual tension, snark, society shenanigans, dragons
Summary: That night Draco dreams, and he is the ghost in his garden. He is both silvered figment and his own solid and flesh face pressing against the window, watching. Spinning and spun, haunting and haunted. Turned and turning, an open mouth with no sound.
Harry and Draco are thrown together on an investigation into a sinister political movement.

My thoughts: This fic is so beautifully written, with this sort of permeating melancholy that I really love. It explores the politics of the Magical world, which is something I find really cool, as well as being a great auror mystery. So many good characterisation and the character arc is beautiful. Wonderful story.

---

Okay, over to some beautiful Tumblr arts:

This drawing by dasstark might be one of my favourite portraits ever of Ginny. She looks so fierce and beautiful and cool and her hair is so stunning. I might be in love.

This incredibly beautiful picture of the Marauders by upthehillart. The whole vibe of the picture is so great, with the warmth of the Gryffindor commonroom and the light from the fireplace. Plus, Sirius is stunning, which I guess is as it should be.

Also this stunning little comic by [personal profile] 8c of Ginny and Luna is too adorable for words. *sighs happily*


---

Also, in the end, does anyone fancy some One Direction fics? Because in this rec post I go on about all my favourites, and let's face it, I won't miss an opportunity to flail about them ;)

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.

Popping my head out from my temporary MIA status to flail about this! Such a lovely idea and really something I feel like we needed right now. Thank you so much, [livejournal.com profile] lokifan, for coming up with and hosting this <3 I can't believe how nice you guys are to me!! You're making me cry <3<3<3


anemonen: (Snitch)
Day 12

What makes you fannish? And by that we mean, what is it about a tv show/movie/book/band/podcast/etc that takes you from, "Yeah, I like that," to "I need MOAR!!!" Is it a character? A plotline? The pretty? Subtext that’s just screaming to be acknowledged?


Hmm.. The weird thing about me, is that I'm not really fannish in that sense? Which sounds weird. But. It kind of is that way for me in that there wasn't a sense of looking for more or feeling that something should be changed or something else should've happened. To be honest, I saw HP fanfiction mentioned somewhere and got curious and ended up looking it up. Then got hooked of course. Then I joined in and met you amazing people and never looked back. So I came for fanfiction and stayed for you guys.

Don't get me wrong, I love Harry Potter, and I also in general love the type of films and books etc that typically acquire fandoms. So I absolutely feel at home in fandom, and I love it here. But my love for fanfiction comes mostly from a literary perspective, I think. And of course a love for the characters. But not from something that feels unfulfilled? If that makes sense. That said, fanfiction has massively ruined my ability to read regular books. I just don't enjoy them as much anymore. I found this on Tumblr once that I feel summed my feelings up really well, even if I wasn't able to put my finger on it before I read this:

 photo 03CDA33D-D3D7-43FD-AA37-959519621AB5_zps1f6ykvzh.jpg

(I saved this a long time ago, and had cut it like this, so I sadly don't have the link.)


But the bottom line is; I love fandom, I love the people here and I love that it feels like a safe place and very educational in a lot of ways. It feels safe to talk about just about anything here; sexuality, gender, feminism, kinks, interests... And it's so freeing in a way that I didn't really know I missed. And I also really enjoy knowing that I know people all over the world and that we share thoughts and interests. It just feels really nice <3

This got really rambly. Sorry.
I love you guys <3
anemonen: (Snitch)
Day 10
In your own space, post a rec for fannish and/or creative resources and spaces. Tell us where you go to dig up canon facts for your fandom, or where you get all the juicy details about your favorite ship. Where do you like to hang out and squee like a squeeing thing? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Tumblr is a goldmine for references when it comes to drawing, really. Just searching there or following blogs with models or actors or romantic pics. Like these here. (Might sometimes be nsfw.)

Also just following big fan artists on Tumblr can be a great resource; sometimes they'll get asks and post drawing tips or resources or videos. And their art in general can be very inspirational.


Day 11

In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Why is this so hard?

1) I like that I can sing, and am generally musical. Music and singing gives me immense joy.
2) I like that I can draw fairly okay. Similarly as the first thing; it brings me a lot of joy.
3) I like that I don't take myself too seriously. In a way. Some things freak me out, like, awkward silences with people I'm not comfortable with etc, but it takes a lot to make me embarassed in other ways. I don't really care if I fall down in front of a crowd (except if it hurts), I can go dance on an empty dancefloor if I'm out on the town, I'll wear weird clothes if the mood hits, if someone catch me singing while I'm waiting for the elevator that's fine too (or whistling, which happened just a couple of days ago. Hello there neighbour!).
ETA: I've got other areas where I take myself too seriously, so there's stuff to work on, definitely. But I got these.
anemonen: (Snitch)
Day 09

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.


Since I'm doing this publicly, I'll set fannish goals here. I'm going to try and be more involved this year than I was last year. Try and do more fests, be better at posting stuff and be better at interacting with my fandom friends. I also really want to improve my drawing, and do more digital art I think.
anemonen: (Snitch)
Day 5

Leave feedback for a fanwork. Or multiple fanworks. It can be as simple as I liked this to a detailed list of all the things you loved about the fanwork. The key is to leave some sort of feedback.


I didn't make a post of it's own for this one, since I felt like it didn't really warrant it. But I left a few more comments on the fabulousness that is [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised! I've sadly had to concede that I won't be able to finish reading in time for reveals (I'm only about halfway through), but I look forward to continue with the rest at my own pace :)


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.


I was thinking of saying the same as last year; making a likes/dislikes-post! I saw [livejournal.com profile] gracerene posted the same challenge too, and I'm tempted to copy her, because those posts are such a great resource. And fun to make!!

And then I also really liked [livejournal.com profile] firethesound's challenge of posting more on LJ. That goes for myself as well. I'd love to see more activity here, especially in the wake of all the holiday fests wrapping up. (omg I'm so excited for [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised reveals tomorrow!)

I tried to see if I could think of something else to suggest, but I really couldn't think of anything (other than really self serving stuff. Anyone wanna share their favourite quick dinner recipe with me?) :P So I'll be a copy-cat for this one.


Day 7

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Hmm. Okay, so I'll do one for 1D fandom and one for Harry Potter fandom, because I really kinda wanna do one for the first, but the latter is my main fandom after all.

Harry Potter )

One Direction )



--------------------
Can I complain a bit about the cold?! It's sooo fucking cold! And they're saying it'll quite possibly stay that way for the next couple of weeks :/ I had to go down to the basement and dig out my down jacket that makes me look like a violet blob on legs, because my wool coat just didn't cut it anymore. And even though my boots are lined with wool my toes get all stiff and achey when I walk out. When it was at it's coldest it felt like the inside of my nose was freezing when I breathed in and the bones in my face ached. And we're not even close to the kinds of temperatures they're experiencing further inland. I don't understand how they survive; this is more than enough for me.


On a brighter side I'm LOVING the countdown for BBC Sound of 2016 this year! I adore NAO who placed 3rd and I can't wait for her to release an album, and Alessia Cara who placed second today covered Disclosure in the Live Lounge and it was absolutely brilliant. I'm expecting Jack Garratt to win since he didn't take any of the other top 5 spots. Something else would surprise me greatly, since he's got by far the most exposure this autumn. Not undeserved even if I think I prefer NAO. Anyway. I love new music ♥
anemonen: (Snitch)
Day 4

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.


For this challenge I finished something I started a couple of days ago. I revisited my Music Drawble Meme, where I still have some prompts left. This one was from [livejournal.com profile] huldrejenta, for Remus/Sirius. More digitalism :)

Title: My safety net
Rating: G
Medium: Digital
Lyrics: I hope you got a safety net
'Cause I'm gonna push you over the edge

"Delirious" - Susanne Sundfør
Characters: Remus/Sirius
Disclaimer: The characters belong to J.K. Rowling. No copyright infringement is intended and no money is being made by this fan work.
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] huldrejenta requested these lyrics for this pairing and added "possibly quite literally, getting ready for some youthful prank. OR the moment just before they're about to kiss. (Or a combination)." Haha, I went for the combination of course. I imagine they're pranking James, because obviously he deserves to be pranked himself every now and then. What exactly they're planning is a bit unclear, though! Hope you'll like.

anemonen: (christmas snitch)
I wasn't really going to do this, but it does look fun, so here's me doing the Snowflake Challenge anyway :)

Day 01

In your own space, talk about why you are doing the Fandom Snowflake Challenge? What drew you to it as a participant? What do you hope to accomplish by doing these challenges?


I did this last year, so I wasn't really planning on doing it this year as well, but then the posts seem to be a little different so I changed my mind. I was feeling a bit like I'd fall into some post New Year laziness and this seemed like a good way to keep up posting. It also seems like a good way of thinking through my fandom involvement and all the things I enjoy so much with spending time in fandom.


Day 2

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.


Oh, a difficult one!

1) The standard one; fic for my fan art! It'd be so much fun reading something like that; seeing how other people interpret the scenes I capture with my drawings.

2) More next gen fic!! Obviously I'm super chuffed by this year with the revival of the [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest, but the more the merrier? I'd especially love to see some more Al/Scorpius <3

3) Finding more 1d fics like These Inconvenient Fireworks, because that one is seriously one of the best pieces of writing I've ever read!! When I finish it there's this acute sense of loss and a wish to just keep rolling around in the fantastic universe *sighs*

4) Finding out who my Erised MA is, so I can shower them in gratefulness <33333 (I have a few suspicions, and I really can't wait to find out who it is!!)


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.


*laughs nervously* This feels so awkward... They're all fairly new because I always die a bit inside when I try looking at my older art. But I do quite like these!

Do You Want to See the World (Al/Scorpius)
Why: I do love these to dorks a lot and the potential they represent. I've also enjoyed this silly world travel series a lot (and I do plan on getting back to it!), with the instagrams and stuff. Drawing wise, though, this is my favourite.


Live here in the moment (Draco)
Why: I've quite enjoyed drawing digitally lately, and I'm pretty happy about how this one turned out. I made it for my magnificent Erised-gift (did I mention how much I loved it? The fic, that is).


Roxanne (Um, Roxanne haha)
Why: I've also loved making my portrait series, even though I'm running out of non-obscure characters a bit. But I did like this one. I never thought much about Roxanne, but [livejournal.com profile] besamislabios suggested that Ashley Moore would fit as her and I agree! I had fun trying to draw her.
anemonen: (Snitch)
I saw [livejournal.com profile] writcraft and [livejournal.com profile] blithelybonny doing this meme, and I thought maybe it was possible to do for drawing too? I've been a bit down on inspiration lately, so I figured maybe it could help. I was going to say pairings I'd rather not do, but then I thought maybe it could be a fun challenge anyway? It has to be Harry Potter, though. And please, don't take this to mean you shouldn't prompt my regular pairings, because I'd love to have a bunch for those too!

Music Dra(w)bble Meme

+ Put a playlist on shuffle.
+ Pick a lyric from the first 20 songs.
+ Have your f-list comment with a character or ship to match the lyrics. I'd also be SUPREMELY grateful if you gave me a hint as to what you're imagining, because a lot of these are rather vague.
+ Drabble (drawble in my case) each one.

I put together a bunch of new and old playlists, and think I mostly just succeeded in exposing my weird as fuck taste in music. Well. Here we go:

So Here We Are - Bloc Party
anemonen: (Snitch)
So everyone's doing this Trope showdown meme, so obviously I can't resist. The top of the list seems okay, although nearer the bottom I must admit that there are a few I don't know what are and a few I've just never read. But the common ones at the bottom are probably fairly correct as well. Um, I kind of assumed that Fake Out Make Out was like, pretend boyfriends or something, but there's another one for that. So I don't know what that is, really. Also assuming that rivalmancy is, well, rivals. Antagonism. Also, Loyalty Kink? Karmic Time Warp? I don't know what those are.

Results )


Also! CLAIMING IS OPEN AT [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest! I'M TOTALLY HEADING OVER THERE NOW^^
anemonen: (Snitch)
Lovely [livejournal.com profile] dragonstag challenged me for this meme, and I really like this idea. Well done [livejournal.com profile] praevarus for coming up with it! And it fit really well today, because a fic was posted for the Salt and Pepper fest at [livejournal.com profile] hp_goldenage for one of my prompt, and it fit perfectly!

1. Find a fanwork that is different from what you normally read. This can be a new genre, pairing, kink, fandom, or even just an author you've never read anything by.
2. Enjoy and leave some comment love for the author/artist.
3. Report back in a post and challenge three other people to do the same.

One thing I've discovered by reading in another fandom is the amount of AU's that's there. It seems like 80% of the 1D fics out there are AUs. Like totally AUs, like Harry is the prince of England and Louis works for a group that handles pr crises (that one was quite good:P). I've never read in Merlin fandom, but from what I've seen it seems like AUs are a big thing there too. Why is that not more of a thing in Harry Potter? Not like Slytherin!Harry AUs, but Muggle AUs where they only keep their personalities and looks and relationships. From the top of my head I can only recall reading two, actually.

Okay, so tags:

Also, here's a pimp for the Salt and Pepper fest:

I'm a bit late with these, but better late than never, eh?

Day 14:

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

Day 12:

In your own space, talk about what you bring to fandom. It can be something tangible, or not. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Hmm, not sure exactly what they mean here. I draw, although I'm not sure I would call that a contribution as much as me just doing something I enjoy immensely, and taking advantage of all of you for inspiration :)
I also read and comment and flail and am in general in a constant state of awe of the amount of talent found here.



Day 13:

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Okay, how am I supposed to do this? I wish I could make one super long post and just mention everyone I know. Choosing one is really quite impossible.
But I'm going to go for [livejournal.com profile] firethesound. I first found her writing through a rec for Matchmaker, Matchmaker back in my lurking days and was instantly blown away. Her writing was one of the things that made me realise that LJ was the place to be, and she was one of the first people I added here. Just everything she writes has such an astounding high quality, and I'm always so exited when I see she's posted a new story.

----

And also a rec

Title: Over (Never Done With)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] this_bloody_cat
Pairing, characters: James Sirius Potter/Scorpius Malfoy; Albus Severus Potter
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: ~4,000
Summary: Scorpius knows he's being played. But this time, he's not exactly sure what James' game is.
Warnings: Rimming, anal fingering, light D/s, some humiliation, and boys talking dirty all over the place.

My thoughts: [livejournal.com profile] this_bloody_cat is awesome and made me this one for my Snowflake wishlist, and it's SO GOOD. It's told from Scorpius' pov, and I love how it's told. James is being all confident and Scorpius can't resist him, and there's pining and so much hotness and also so much emotion. Such a great fic. Warmly recommended, even if you're not into this pairing. This story will get you into it!

Day 10

Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or check out some fanworks that are new to you.


First of all I read in a new fandom: the Hobbit. I read [livejournal.com profile] gracerene's fic Where Garden's Grow. I'm glad I tried it out, because the fic is fabulous and so hot. So if you're curious, I very much recommend it :)

Secondly, and I wasn't really going to do something else, I tried drawing Rae Morris, because I'm a bit obsessed with her song Under the Shadows. Plus she's so beautiful and I'm wildly jealous of her hair. It was also an attempt to try and draw likenesses, because I didn't use to be able to do that, and I really want to master it.

Day 11

In your own space, post a rec for fannish and/or creative resources.


Hmm, this is tricky. I usually find creative resources via Tumblr or google searches. From my slash perspective, pictures of beautiful men is always an inspiration and a good source for references. I've been using these two blogs a bit. Especially for my portrait series. Oh, and also these wonderful pose books that [livejournal.com profile] chibitoaster shared has been very helpful.

As for more general fannish goodness, [livejournal.com profile] capitu's rec journal, [livejournal.com profile] my_drarry_recs, is so, so great, of course! Also, [livejournal.com profile] gracerene's journal, where there are recs for both HP and other fandoms. :D

Day 9
In your own space, talk about what surprises you about fandom. It could be a pairing or fandom you never thought you'd like. A fanwork type you never knew existed. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Oh there have been so many surprises for me in fandom. First of all, that it was a thing. I didn't even know that two years ago, before I stumbled across it rather randomly. Secondly that slash was a thing, which I also had no idea about, nor the fact that I would fall so head over heels in love with the concept. Thirdly, that I would meet so many incredible people through fandom. Tbh, earlier I've always been a bit sceptical to meeting people online, because you never know if they are who they say they are, you know? But this incredible community has so many wonderful people and it's hard to imagine that I didn't know any of you a year ago. Man, I'm so grateful I do now. Also the fact that everyone was so welcoming and accepting towards me as an outsider. When I lurked it seemed like everyone knew each other so well and I didn't know if I would be able to be a part of it all like that, but here I am. Thank you everyone for being my friends and welcoming me. I appreciate all of you so much <3

Day 8

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are.


Oh, god. This is horrifyingly awkward, isn't it? *closes eyes and presses post*

Day 7

In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Day 6

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Oh, this came at on bad day, because I don't have that much time today. Maybe I can use the one I posted yesterday? Or a promise of more art in the near future?

In that vein, will you guys help me with prompts I can use in the coming time? :)
I'll do Drarry stuff or next-gen slash stuff. And I'll throw in Remus/Sirius too, because I keep planning to check out that pairing more. But nothing explicitly sexual. I'd be forever grateful if you guys will help me out!

Sorry if I'm totally cheating
