Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 10

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. Icons with John Green quotes (either something he's said or quotes from his books), likewise any Michele Jaffe, or The Alchemist icons. Or really, any icons about books.

2. Any recs for some awesome podcasts/radio programmes like Welcome to Night Vale or BBC's production of Neverwhere. Despite not being an auditory person at all, if it has a good story, I will so be there.

3. This feels like asking for too much, but art for any of my stories? Ah, maybe someday someone, somewhere, will be inspired to draw something based on what I wrote.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 9

In your own space, rec at least 3 fanworks you thought you wouldn't like (because they weren't your fandom or they pushed against your boundaries or you thought you just wouldn't be interested) but you ended up loving. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - 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. 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.

*screws up her courage*
So, yes, if you feel like saying anything lovely towards me, this would be the place. You will have my undying love and gratitude and I'm pretty sure if you ever in the future need somebody to help you bury a body, I will totally be that person for you.

(Otherwise known as the post, "dahlia_moon hates asking for validation and hugs and love but she will totally reciprocate if ever need be, and besides, she has an excuse for this one time" she is not, however, too shy to refer to herself in the third person; she /loves/ doing that.)

(Going back to school next week for my last semester as an undergraduate. I'm kinda sad we only got a three-week break this time around. Usually, it's a month. What happened to that, school? Huh??? I'd like to be able to go to graduate school, but that's more of a "someday" for now--my parents are on pins & needles enough as it is for me to graduate and get a job already. I know what most of you are thinking: my parents do not have to live my life for me so if I want to go to graduate school, I should be able to, but yeah, no. It's a bit more complicated then that at the moment. My parents are the practical, wise folks while I'm off with my head in the clouds dreaming of reading poetry all day long, or getting a BA in English, it amounts to the same thing for them in the end.)

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 7

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.

So I started writing this piece of meta a long time ago, and then it just languished in my drafts folder, uncompleted for the longest time. I don't even remember now what prompted me to write it in the first place? LOL, A+ self. But I wanted to finish it up finally, and publish it somewhere, even if I still have no idea how to write meta. Or if this really is meta. And then this challenge came along, and it's forcing me to finally complete it and spruce it up for public consumption. Anyways, have some Louis Litt feels and thoughts. (I really didn't foresee loving him as much as I do all the other main characters, but I do. Also, though I'm up to s3, this only takes into account seasons 1-2.)

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 6

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.

(No, the date at the top is correct--I skipped days 4 & 5 because I wasn't comfortable doing them at /all/. I have different comfort levels than most people, I've found. But the fun shall resume! For day anyway.)

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 3

In your own space, post a rec 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. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser-known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom who maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

(This was kinda hard too, as I tend to only read fics on Ao3 nowadays and I find a lot of stuff via recs and lists I find floating around, but I love these three and keep finding myself re-reading them often.)

Fandom Snowflake Challenge - Day 2

In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

(It was mighty hard just listing three items as I tend to love pretty much all of the communities I join either on LJ/DW or on tumblr/twitter--otherwise I'd delete them from my reading pages, but these are just some of the more exceptional ones.)

1. [community profile] halfamoon: hey it's a community that celebrates women! I do love that this is low-pressure and though I haven't participated myself, I mostly love lurking around and oohhhing-and-ahhhing at other people's posts.

2. [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest: I tend to pretty much want to be in fandom for everything I consume in media (to varying degrees, of course, and some fandoms end up being more like one-time fandoms), except the problem with that is I sometimes find myself obsessed with really small fandoms. This community helps in seeing what's out there fannishly. (And I know there's the word "fest" in the title but people can post fanworks in small fandoms all year round, I believe.)

3. [community profile] poetry: for all your poetry needs! I love that it's active and has so much poetry.

Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

Saw [livejournal.com profile] lil_1337 and [livejournal.com profile] frith_in_thorns doing this on their 'journals and thought it looked like fun.

My theme/topic: 100 AWESOME COMIC BOOK MOMENTS (these will most likely entail 'shipping moments - because BILLY AND TEDDYY KISSSSSSSSS FINALLY LIKE AFTER 12-ISSUES AND TWO CROSSOVER EVENTS PLUS 9-ISSUES OF AVENGERS: CHILDREN'S CRUSADE - but there will also be character moments too and/or individual/group scenes from old and new comics. I don't really know right now; kinda am winging it at the moment.)


why, no this is not an excuse to talk about comics even more and all the time - well maybe it kinda is.


Speaking of comics (well kinda), Thor 2 movie news is apparently that a new villain will appear in the sequel. That's OMGGG YAY! Because I am finding myself sympathetic toward Loki the villain in the first movie and I kinda don't want him to be the evil EVERY TIME (like in The Avengers) ? OK? It's like Loki isn't inherently evil so much as he can be a bastard sometimes. But that's kind what sibling rivalry is about? Though with Thor and Loki it's kind taken to the extreme.

I have seen fan comments about how fans of Loki romantice his character and that comics!Loki is an evil bastard who shouldn't be liked. And maybe that's true? I am not familiar with comics!Loki except for that one Free Comic Book Day issue where Thor and Captain America (this is before they join Avengers because they don't seem to know each other) end up in Camelot and they find that Loki is masquerading as Merlin the magician and tricking King Arthur and the knights of the round table. But that's not so much evil as mischievous. And it was a really nice, awesome issue.

I just have a lot of Loki feelings, I guess. (And THE AVENGERS might change my mind about him once I actually see it.)
dahlia_moon: (Two cutties)
So, I've decided to try for [livejournal.com profile] 24xmas. Will be attempting to write a fic everyday until December 1, and start posting. (I've all ready joined quite a while ago and only have one story written for it. Omg, I fail. So badly.)

Prompt Table:

001.tree 002.ribbon003.Church004.Candy Cane.005.Red
006.wreath007.parties008.Angel.009.homeless010. Candle
016.ponsettia017.egg nog.018.Greeting Cards.019.Music.020.elves.

For my reference:
Prompt ## and word

Then a lj cut for the story
