I'm too emotional by half today, but this video really made me cry. This is the sweetest video I've seen for ages. I'm on a massive Shura binge today and wanted to reblog this song on Tumblr, and when I searched for it someone had posted the video with the caption "cutest lgbt music video since girls like girls" so I had to watch it and. And. Now I'm sitting here with wet cheeks and a little smile. So I'm sharing.

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 [ 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 [ 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 [ 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 [ 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.

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 ♥
