Fandom 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 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.


Oh man. Asking for things is not a strong suit of mine. In the slightest. But in the spirit of snowflakes and fandom and bravery and all that is shiny, here we go:

1) So I LOVE podfic. A whole lot. I am constantly listening to it, and will usually listen to my favorites upwards of ten times. Here are a few (relatively long) stories I keep coming back to again and again and again, which would be incredible to have in my ears:
- L for Lucky, M For Mine by deadpegasus
- Creepy Carnival by RubyTuesday5681
- Says the Magpie To The Morning (Sorrow Take Your Own Advice) by femmequixotic
- Tell Me I'm A Bad Man by LadySmutterella
- Or. Um. Any of my stuff, should anyone feel so inclined. *hides*

2) The Mikey Way/Grant Morrison hospital!AU where Mikey's an ER nurse, Frank's a punk ass paramedic who never knows when to shut up, Gee's a frustrated but well-meaning social worker and Ray is a chaplain or psychiatrist that just can't get a date. Enter a dashingly handsome new surgeon from Scotland who's easily 20 years older than Mikey, but somehow still makes Mikey's stomach swoop... until he realizes he's kind of an arrogant asshole. I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS IS A THING THAT I WANT. But I do and I can't stop thinking about it.

3) This is a rather abstract type wishlist item, but I keep wishing there was an interview series blog or a podcast that profiles fic writers/podficcers/artists/etc - and picks their brains about their inspirations, their creative process, what they want to express through their work, their takes on fandom, who else in fandom they are inspired by, a list of their three favorite fanworks, etc. Like the Voice and Verse podcast, but with fan creators instead of lyricists.

4) For you to come say hi on twitter, because you seem really cool and we should probably be friends. :) (only locked due to nosy relatives)

I like #3 a lot. Like, something to think about...hmmmm. In due South, before the fandom went really quiet, there was [livejournal.com profile] ds_profiles (my profile here) - something like that, but interview-style is what you're talking about, I guess...

Speaking of, I'm writing a long ramble-y processes thing about the writing of Jersey Boy for Prophetic, did you want to see that, too?

Also, hi hi hi!

Ohhhh man, I want the third one so badly. I kind of wonder what the chances are of Snowflakes getting together and making this happen.

Unfortunately I have shitty RSI atm and can't commit to a big story...

Especially since you're already committed to a big story... *eyes you*

#3 reminds me of writersonmars, with a list of questions for writers here and here.

Specific to Life on Mars fandom, but could be applied to any I think? :) I'd love to see something like this.

I have friend-requested you on Twitter (elmyra emilie)! I don't post often, because mostly I follow cricket on there, but maybe with someone fun to tweet with I'll be more active!

I LOVE the idea of #2 - I can't write Grant for shit, but if anyone DOES pick it up I'm happy to offer them a Scot-from-the-same-geographic-dialect-area-as-Grant beta :D
akamine_chan: Grant Morrison (GMo)

[personal profile] akamine_chan 2016-01-04 08:55 am (UTC)(link)
You are an awesome Scot-from-the-same-geographic-dialect-area-as-Grant beta!

Provided I'm not utterly snowed at work, I'm happy to open the offer up to people writing Grant in general (I'm aware it's hard to do dialect properly, especially with Scots, and double especially with Glaswegian as it's a dialect mixed with a totally different language).

Have you tried Keira Marcos' podcast? For background, she's a Harry Potter & Stargate fanfiction writer, and she does a podcast called Keira's World about writing/fandom/random stuff.

*chin hands*

Any help I can provide, just let me know. I can help with technical stuff, or well, anything, really. I just don't have the time to devote to a project like this full time.

Um, wow. You just asked for podfic of my fic right alongside of one of femmequixotic's best fics.
Fucking FEMMEQUIXOTIC!!! I fangirled her so fucking hard back in my HP fandom days! She is a GODDESS!!! I adore her work! I actually met her at a HP con once, it was like meeting a celebrity! Magpie is one of my very favorite fics of all time!

And you put my fic in same list as hers?!?!?!?!

I am just going to sit here and cry happy tears for a while, okay? Okay

<3<3<3

She's super sweet! I really enjoyed meeting her!

I mostly just beta'ed in HP fandom, but I did write some fic. http://rubytuesday5681.livejournal.com/?skip=25&tag=my%20fic If you scroll down a bit on that page, you'll come to all of it.
Just kidding, there's also some here.

Some of it's pretty decent... maybe it's time to put it on AO3... *ponders*
