Rating: Teen and up

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.

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 15:
In your own space, create your own challenge. What’s something you want to see more people doing in fandom? Is there something fun 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.

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

Day 5

In your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. How did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity?

anemonen: (Scorpius)
Day 3

In your own space, talk about your creative process - from what inspires you to what motivates you to how you manage to break through blocks. Does your process change depending on the type of creating you're doing? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Oh, this is a bit difficult. I don't have a very conscious relationship with my creative process. I just sometimes feel like drawing and sometimes don't. Although I often get inspired by pictures -- Tumblr is a great source for me there. When I draw for prompts I usually pick ones where I get an instant picture in my hear when I read it, then I just go for it. As for motivation, I get very motivated by being part of fandom; seeing other people create and also by getting feedback. If I get a block I find the best way to get rid of it is to use prompts from fests or comms or asking friends. But sometimes the only thing that works it to wait until the block dissappears by itself.
