Hello Trick or Treater! I have a special place in my heart for this exchange, and I’m just so excited it’s that time of the year again.

I’m pretty easy to write for; I read a lot of fanfic in a lot of different genres, and am up for almost anything. I love dark, deep fics (I’m okay with character death as well – with the exception of Crazy Ex), but I can also really enjoy a happy fluffy one.
The ideas below are just a couple of things that I like about the fandoms; feel free to write something completely different than what I’m asking for!

A couple of my favourite things in fics are: soulmate AUs, Hogwarts/magic AUs, fake dating, rain setting, non-chronological writing, letters/epistolary. If inspiration strikes, I'm also definitely a crossover person.
I do have a couple of do not wants: graphic self-harm, zombies, bullying, genderswaps, character bashing, mpreg, and cunnilungus.

Crazy Ex-GirlfriendCollapse )

Brooklyn Nine-NineCollapse )

Don’t trust the B in Apt. 23Collapse )

House MDCollapse )

Take TwoCollapse )

Harry PotterCollapse )



Oh, LJ and DW, I love you both. Thank you for keeping my social life, well, alive. Feel free to comment on either site.

Hello Age Gap writer! I’m excited to celebrate these relationships with you – I’ve always been a sucker for relationships with an age gap, so I’m pretty excited to have found this exchange. Bring it on!

Day 8 - 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.

CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND


I'll try to reign in my enthusiasm to be able to accurately describe why I love this series so much (if I knew how to make the 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' above sparkly, I totally would have done so).

It's about love, and how the glorification of it can ruin us. It's about what being crazy means. It's about finding yourself in a world that makes you believe there's something wrong with you for not fitting into its mold. It's about being yourself, and how the hell to figure out who that is.

It's a story that's so emotionally intense, the characters break into song about twice per episode (in 3 seasons, the writers will have written 110 original songs). It's a series that does the balancing between heavy emotion and humour absolutely right which is so, so hard to do.

The main character has borderline personality disorder and is not evil. One of the men is bisexual, using the actual word, and is the most awkwardly adorable guy you've ever met. One of the love interests was conceived as Asian from the start, and after casting Vincent Rodriguez III for the role, they wrote the part to fit his ethnic background. Representation is everywhere in this series.

On a very personal level, this series has literally changed my life, and might even have saved it on occasion. I want everyone to see it (yet at the same time, I refrain from recommending it to my sister because Rebecca is so much like me that I'm terrified of how she'll respond to the character).

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.

Okay, so... I wasn't going to do this. And then I remember I talked with my therapist last week about how I'm embarrassed about wanting/loving attention, and I was like.. Maybe I should work on this. Maybe this is a step in the right direction. So this is me tentatively reaching out.

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

The one I've used the most over the years is the Buffyverse dialogue database, which is an amazing site that collects all the dialogue from seven seasons of Buffy and five seasons of Angel, and sorts them per characters, or per story arc, or... It's seriously amazing.

(I'm now officially at my longest Snowflake streak ever! Go me!)

In your own space, create a fannish wishlist. No limits on size or type of fanwork; just tell us what you’d like to see. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. And if you grant a wish, do the same thing!

- Are there any active Crazy Ex-Girlfriend communities? I would absolutely love to talk about this show with other people.

- I would love a HP fusion exchange. Does something like this exist? I've even considered running my own, but a) don't know how, and b) probably will not have the time or energy to invest in such a thing.

- I would love any recs for longer Ginny or Luna stories.

- Rec me your favourite mental health site or community.

Day 2: In your own space, share a favorite memory about fandom: the first time you got into fandom, the last time a fanwork touched your heart, crazy times with fellow fans (whether on-line or off-line), a lovely comment you’ve received or have left for someone. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
Most of my best memories with fandom stem from land communities. I still remember being so scared when I first joined, but it became a home for me. I think at the height of it, I was a member of four or five comms, and I've led quite a few teams over the years. I loved the prompts, I loved the sense of community. They truly were something special.

Day 3: 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.
I have an Access file in which I keep track of all the fics that I feel are worth reccing. I also keep track of themes in those fics, and my plan has always been to rec once I gathered three fics per theme. Today, I'll get out the "Secret Relationship" theme:

1) mak5258 - Sin & Vice
Harry Potter, Snape/Hermione (291,856 words)
This is not a light and breezy fic, but it is amazing. I've always loved Time Travel, and this hits all my spots.

2) thedevilchicken - Common Knowledge
Firefly, Jayne/Mal (4,001 words)
This is an amazing look into Jayne's brain. The run-on sentences are incredibly in character, and there was just so much emotion hidden behind the words.

3) iridescentglow - This is a promise with a catch
The Fosters, Callie/Brandon (19,249)
Truth is, I don't even really ship Callie/Brandon. But this fic almost made me change my mind, it's written so good. The characterization is amazing - especially Callie and Stef just spring to life from the page.

In your own space, talk about why you're participating in Snowflake and, if you’ve participated in the past, how the challenge has affected you. What drew you to it? What did you take away from it? What do you hope to accomplish this year? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

This is my fifth year participating in Snowflake. I usually end up doing just a few of the challenges, after which real life gets in the way. I'm aiming this year to do better, but we'll see. Even if I don't manage to do more than one challenge, I always enjoy whatever I end up doing.

The reason why I love this so much, is because fandom is such a big part of my life and my identity. It isn't always easy to truly connect with that part of me among all my mental health issues and lack of time due to work commitments, and Snowflake is a great way to remind myself that that part still exists, and especially how that part deserves *celebration and attention* as well.
I also really like the sense of community it creates; seeing so much of the fandom community come together to celebrate the life of fans is a great weapon against feelings of disconnect.

Hi all,

I've been meaning to get back into DW/LJ, and to make things a little less daunting, I've removed quite a few of people and communities that were either inactive for over a year, or that I felt like I never really connected with.

However, since it's been ages since I used this system and especially LJ's isn't exactly user friendly, there's a pretty high change of mistakes. If you think I've removed you accidentally, I probably have - please let me know and I'll add you back!
