Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 6  

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner

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.

  • 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.

I made a couple banner mock ups for you!

I can customize them however you want and send you the full size files if you like them. Don't feel like you have to use them if you don't like them though! I promise not to be offended lol I was just having some fun messing around :) And if you have some other images you'd like on banners, I can give those a go as well.

OMG, these are so lovely! (I'm a minimalist, so this feeds right into my aesthetic.) I didn't expect anything so soon. Thank you very much! I especially adore the diamond theme, haha x) Can't wait to finish something new to be able to use them :D

What program did you use? If it's a free one, I could install it and wouldn't have to bother you with customising them for the title etc. ^^;

As I mentioned to someone else on dw, finding images to use for banners is the hardest part for me. I like typesetting well enough, but everything beyond that gives me a shootmenaoplx kinda feel lol

Ahh, I'm really glad you like them :D Banners are a lot of fun, though I'm still working on figuring out composition and choosing images lol

I use Gimp for graphics, which is a free open source program. I also use pain.net at work, which I think has most of the same capabilities. I'm happy to send you the files if you'd like to customize them yourself!

I have both these programs, so I'd be very happy if you could send the files to me :D my gmail is silksuitedparasite. Again, thank you so much <3
