Day 7

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.


I was just working on this when this post appeared. So here you go.

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.


1. Coverart/banners to use when cross-posting my fic to tumblr (kind of like this one, just, you know, not quite as amateurish xD), because just posting the AO3 link kind of doesn't draw any attention at all.

Ideally, I'd love something that thematically goes together with each new fic or pairing I write. I have a gazillion of WIPs and ideas, so there would be a lot to choose from. Fandoms could be DCU (Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, etc.), Raven Cycle (Kavinsky, Ronan), and hopefully Sherlock soon too.

Suggestions:
  • Something involving the aftermath of New Year's. (My most current WIP.)

  • Something to do with Harley, Selina and/or grief.

  • Roadtrip au

  • Fingers to the head, pointed like a gun: Arkhamverse, Harley and Jason. WIP.</a>

  • Artist AU, like Hidden here below the fracture (Raven Cycle, Kavinsky, Proko, perhaps Ronan if I continue).</a>

  • Stripper AU. (For my rewrite of I dance like I got diamonds. Suicide Squad, Harley/Joker.)

  • Demon AU, maybe.

  • Something for Trinity Blood's Esther and Dietrich.

  • Or just a one-size-fits-all banner with just a crooked spoon on it, haha?


Sidenote on Harley: I prefer her with blond hair, but make an exception for Injustice-verse Harley's red and black ;D



2. Someone to contact when I need new graphics for new projects I'm working on. Alternately, someone to walk me through the creation of above-mentioned banners in about a month or two.



3. A writing buddy/enabler for Raven Cycle (Kavinsky-centric, I'm warning ya) or such DCU fandoms such as Injustice, Arkhamverse, Suicide Squad, assorted Batcanon, etc (Harley Quinn-centric). Maaaybe eventually one for Teen Wolf (Stiles-centric, but no Sterek), but we'll see about that. And for D.Gray-man, eventually.

I have an absolutely wonderful writing buddy in [personal profile] neurotoxia. We ping-pong ideas, discuss things we are confused about, beta for each other, and just generally do a lot of hand-holding. Hands-down my favourite time was when we were both obsessed with Sherlock and a tattoo AU of N's making, and were just spawning idea after idea for it. Some of which even made it into writing!

Unfortunately, our fandom obsessions have shifted and we don't write that much for each other anymore. Yet through that I noticed how important it is for my idea creation and especially for my output if I have people close to me who are excited about That Thing I am working on.

Now, this is probably a more utopian wish, as I couldn't even really make use of it right away. Too much RL stuff taking priority. /flops



ETA: Totally forgot! 4. Comment on a work that doesn't have any comments yet. Yes, it's always nice to get more love on an already well-loved fic. But sometimes it's those fics that nobody seems to care about that are the creator's secret favourites.

Last year's wish list.

I'm really looking forward to going through everyone else's wish lists! :D Will probably be bookmarking them all to read later, though.

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.


I chose to go with works I created in 2016 that I feel no one saw.


1. she truly believes the lies (Batman: Arkham Knight - Christina Bell/Harleen Quinzel, T; 2,450 words)
Ordinary People AU. Nearly a year after their breakup, Harley is forced to contact her ex Christina with a special request: to pretend to be her girlfriend once more.

Reason: I generally feel like I'm no good with details, especially of the family background variety. In this, however, I managed to create a family context and had fun doing so. Since this is an AU, you don't need to know Arkham Knight specifically. You can just imagine Christina as a female Joker.



2. digging out stumps of old resentments (Injustice: Gods Among Us - Kate Kane/Harleen Quinzel, G; 250 words)
Noir AU, Prohibition. A rather unusual woman seeks out Kate for her investigative skills.

Reason: I have a fondness for the image of Harley as femme fatale in this.



3. Hidden here below the fracture (The Raven Cycle - Joseph Kavinsky/Ronan Lynch, Joseph Kavinsky/Prokopenko, M; 3278 words)
Artist AU. The one in which K tries to banish Lynch from his head. Through art. And fails.

Reason: Here I feel no one read this because (it's tagged Rovinsky... but Ronan doesn't even show up and it's one-sided attraction!) my summary sounds too cracky, which this thing is really, really not. It's a bit more moody and frustrated, because K has an art block. I'm just really fond of creative geniuses going ballistics because the one thing they feel defines them is not working for them anymore, and them not acknowledging the real reason they're frustrated.

Huh, I thought I'd posted this entry. Maybe I overwrote it with the current October roundup? Whatever, nothing to see here. ;)

Tedious fic updates are tedious, that's why I don't do them. Another reason is that I want to pretend I never wrote the stuff I did. But, I also like continuity, even if can't keep a journal to save my life, or manage to get to know my flist. ;;
