Snowflake Challenge: Day 2  

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner

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</a> 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. A writing buddy with whom to share and develop ideas (mine and their own) and to geek about fandom in general.

2. Encouragement for my WIPs. (Mostly DC atm. Arkhamverse and Suicide Squad. Then there's a slew of AUs.)

3. Writing requests or help choosing which of my many prompts to tackle next. If we have fandoms in common, do link me to your Dear Author letters, your requests at prompt memes, ficathons, etc. It hurts me that there are so many lovely prompts out there that go unfilled.

ETA: 4. People who'd let me remix their stuff.

My main fandom is DC at the moment, with a heavy emphasis on Harley Quinn. (I like Injustice, the Arkhamverse, Thrillkiller, Young Justice, and so much more). Other fandoms include Sherlock BBC, Arrow, The Flash (TV), Bleach, DGM, ...

I only share BBC Sherlock with you, but if you want encouragement, help in choosing prompts or requests in it, I'm game. I even posted a request for BBC Sherlock fic in my own whislist ;)

OH! :D Well, my Sherlock WIPs are currently on the backburner, but I still have one or two giftfics to write. One with Mycroft and Sherlock and the other with Greg and Molly. No further details have been given and that is the death of me. Bunnies only come to me when they have something to nibble at.

And thanks for linking me your list! :D *has a look*

Mycroft and Sherlock can be such fun! Or terribly angsty, now I think about it :P Greg and Molly, though, they can only be cute *g*

I always wondered what Mycroft did while Sherlock was away. Were they in contact? I'd say yes, given the fact of Mycroft showing up in Serbia to help Sherlock. Maybe something about them coming back to England after the rescue?

About Greg and Molly... Greg going to Molly after giving John the box with Sherlock's mementos in Many Happy Returns? You could make it friendship/pre-ship or shippy... Or... let's be a little less obvious and say that Greg notices Molly good mood, ask about it and the answer is Irene :P

Indeed! (Have you seen the special?) I believe the recip would want something more in the light-hearted way.

Surely they had been in contact. Maybe they compared information?

Thank you! Those are good starting points. I shall browse my prompts again to see if anything sparks ;)

I... saw a part. And wasn't very happy with it, hence: a part. I might go back to it at some point, but... yeah...

I think that's quite possible, information would be the one thing Sherlock couldn't refuse from his brother :P

You are welcome. I hope you find a bright sparkling idea, just laying around *g*

Hey, I love DC, drop me a line if you want to bat* ideas around.

*unintentional pun

*snorts* Hey, I'd love that! Thank you so much for offering :D :D Who are your favourite characters/pairings? Are you familiar with the Arkham games, especially the latest? Or, um, is there something you don't care for? Characters, pairings, themes, kinks? So I can narrow down my WIPs xD

Now with the snowflake challenge reminding me of fandom-stocking, I've gathered some more people to write for, but have yet to develop concrete ideas.

One entry I liked was: "Jonathan Crane acting in disdain to literally everyone, Dick Grayson/Jason Todd."

So, in summary, I'm psyched you're offering, I just don't know where to start :D

Choosing really is half the battle innit? I'm not familiar with the games, alas, but I'm fairly open to any bat ' verse possibility - my favourite characters are the Robins, Oracle and the BoP, Bane, any of the femme fatales (Harley! Ivy! Selina!), my favourite-ever series is probably Simone's Secret Six, but I love what I've read of the Suicide Squad (Amanda is such a badass). There's not much that I'm strongly for/against (Babs/Dick is my OTP but I cheerfully acknowledge that Dick Grayson is a total Little Black Dress).

That prompt has such potential!

It is! Deadlines used to help, but lately I haven't been able to write anything. Great! Knowing you're not familiar the Arkhamverse eliminates some things :D So, Harley is my little black dress (and I'm determined to write her in as many pairings as I can get away with). Apart from her, my favourite pairing would be JayDick, although I adore DickBabs as well. I'm a multi-shipper. All the pairings!

What about Injustice: Gods Among Us? Do you know the comics/game? :D

I still have a "Harley/Ivy - Harley-Davidson" prompt I don't know what to do with (250 words). I've written one ficlet in which Ivy didn't want to hop onto Harley's motorcycle because it pollutes the environment, but using that again would be boring. I think I once had an idea for the Injustice-verse, but I can't remember xD ETA: Nvm, I got it :D

Oh, and I think you mentioned in your own wishlist you'd like a writing buddy or a beta? I love playing ping pong with ideas!
