In your own space, tell us about 3 fandom resources you use or enjoy.

honestly? mostly wikis for the fandoms. beyond fanwork creation, i don't tend to do quite as much general engagement. so - wikis it is.

In your own space, resurrect an old meme. Have fun with it! Which is the goofiest meme you can think of? Put on your party hat and be silly!!

this one is from way back - i found it on my imported-from-LJ entries from 2006. imma just post the meme here. i may actually do it myself in a couple days.

Choose twelve characters from your fandoms, then answer the questions under the cut. Do not look at the questions beforehand.




1. Who would make a better college professor, 6 or 11? What subjects would they teach?


2. Do you think 4 is hot? How hot?


3. 12 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?


4. What is or would be 9's favorite book?


5. Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around?


6. For some reason, 5 is looking for a roommate. Should he share a studio apartment with 9 or with 10?


7. 2, 7 and 12 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?



8. 3 challenges 10 to a duel. What happens?


9. If 1 stole 8's most precious possession, how would he get it back?


10. Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most desire.


11. What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together?


12. If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?


13. If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?


14. Does anyone on your friends list write or draw 11?


15. If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be?


16. What might 10 shout while charging into battle?


17. If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose?


18. 1, 6 and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?


19. What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10?


20. What would 5 most likely be arrested for?


21. What is 6's secret?


22. If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first?


24. "1 and 9 reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4's sinister secret organization. 11 volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that 11 is actually a spy for 4. Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5, they seek out 3, who gives them what they need to complete their quest." What title would you give this fic? Name three people on your friends list who might read it. Name one person who should write it.


25. If you had to walk home through a bad neighbourhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8?

In your own space, create a fanwork.

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, creator, episode, or it could be your fandom friends.

fandom is still weird and ever-expanding. there's always something new showing up - either all the way new, or new-to-you style - to jump into and get excited about. and it gonna keep on doing that.

i think this is p much what i write every year... maybe next year my brain will be back online and come up with something new. XD

In your own space, brag about yourself. Tell us what things you've done that you're proud of; the things that make you the wonderful person you are.

* i can tell you the plot of any original MacGyver episode from the ep-title (there are 1 or 2 that trip me up, but i got the rest). kind of a useless skill, but who knows, maybe i'll win a trivia contest b/c of it one day.

* does watching the whole of the MCU (minus the Hulk) more times than is probably healthy count? i've watched through it in so many permutations - release date order, chronological order (this one gives the IW/EG 1-2 and it can be a little rough, but story-wise is makes way more sense than with Capt Marvel between them), reverse order, only the ones with Iron Man in them, only the ones with Spidey, watching to look for some rando thing about Bucky, skipping around via RNG selection - whatever. dood, when you work from home, you make your own fun for the background noise - and since i know all the plots, i can have it playing on the tv behind me and they're not distracting, except when the super cool parts are coming up - like watching Tony slam his stupid ass into the wall the first time he tries out his rocket boots (repulsor boots? whatever).

* i am fucking EXCELLENT at sliding in at the last-last second for [community profile] fan_flashworks challenges. nearly every damned time i'm sliding in Indiana Jones rolling under the big stone door and snagging his hat style. i have legit posted 17 word fics (usually Harvey-Mike banter from Suits) to get my post in. b/c sometimes those ideas you thought you had just run away.

In your own space, create a wishlist.

honestly? fanart of any of my fandoms - MCU, Dresden, Suits, Highlander - that's just for me. doesn't even have to be from any of my fic (though that'd be fine too). i can't draw - i can copy and follow directions, but i can't just picture a thing in my head and then make it appear as art. (stick doods, i got u, but anything w/ dimension? lol no)

fic, art, what-have-you for any varied combination of Harry & Carlos (Dresden Files) - friendy stuff, smutty stuff, riding on a dinosaur stuff - whatever.

if anyone knows where i can get a copy of Rock Band 3 for xbox 360 for a non-stupid price (like $20 USD or less), that'd be fab (my copy is jacked up from an unfortunate console-falling-over incident).

In your own space, create your own challenge.

imma do the same one i do every year: get out your action figures, dolls, toys, whatever and do stories with them. even better - take photos of the stories (hell, make video if you want). toys are meant to be played with! (not required: opening MIB/MIC/etc collectibles)


also - still waiting on someone to mash-up "Life's a Show" (Buffy) and "The Greatest Show" (Greatest Showman) in some creative way. XD

In your own space, rec at least three fanworks that you didn’t create.

i will point, yet again, to [community profile] fan_flashworks =) there's always lovely stuff over there - fic, wallpapers, acrostics, pic spams, texture sets, etc - have a peek!

(the problem with skimming through a lot of fic on tumblr is finding it again - i've read some stuff over there, but i have no idea where, so finding it for rec'ing would be near impossible - but i've seen some super shiny moodboards over there too, if u just search 'moodboard')

In your own space, promote a canon/talk about a part of canon that you love.


omg i don't even know... last year i did like 5 of them.

Dresden Files - 2 books released this year, which was pretty cool.

MacGyver (1985) - which will always be one of my faves.

MCU - still going strong.

Suits - flagged in the last 3-4 seasons, but still a fun show.

Highlander - will prolly forever be a fave.

In your own space, tell us who, from one of your fandoms, would you most want to have dinner with (or tea, or a random afternoon visit), And why? This could be a creator, an actor, a costumer, a set designer, a director, a character, a composer, anybody! What would you talk about? What are you dying to know?


so, technically, i have had dinner with some folks from fandoms - had a pizza party in a hotel lobby floor with Jim Butcher; been to Gatecon and had lunch on a harbor cruise with RDA - i didn't really talk to him, but did 'save' him from an annoyingly intrusive fan; and i've had dinner with a few other actor-folks who were at Gatecon (like actual dinner, not con-related meals).

but if i could pick anyone ever? hell - i don't know. i've been thinking about this for 2 days and i'm no closer to an actual answer. i'm bad at narrowing things down to a list of one. and i dunno what i'd end up talking to them about anyway. so imma just go with 'whatever happens to land in my lap'.

Apparently this is my 6th year doing this challenge.

i dunno that there's much new to say different from last year's intro.

I completed my 4-year [community profile] fan_flashworks streak and I'm almost to my 5-year streak. Mirrored from the original entry at Dreamwidth. Reply there using your own Dreamwidth account or OpenID!

i... don't remember the last time i listed all my [community profile] fan_flashworks stuff, so i'll just leave a link to my tag there... i've posted a bunch, b/c i'm on a streak and nearing 5 yrs, i think? (it's either 4 or 5) some of those posted under the wire. /o\

hmmm - [community profile] holiday_wishes is up again this year. my post is here.

i've been playing a metric fucktonne of The Sims 4... mostly dicking around to see how long i can keep this family going - i'm 16 generations in. i'm also working on putting them through all the careers in the game to get all the career rewards. b/c i got the weird idea to make a 'career reward' museum. i've discovered that some of the careers get really shit rewards tho (gardening - both branches, for instance).


i'm looking for two recommendations:

1) good computer chairs - need high back and headrest. i think gaming chairs are probably best here? but if anyone has any suggestions (in the less than $200US range), would be much appreciated

2) notebooks or journals of the type good for bullet journaling - caveats: has to lay flat when open; have paper thick enough for fountain pen ink not to bleed through; had some form of guidelines (dots are okay, lines are better for me visually)

what's everyone else up to?

it won't be 6 most before i post again this time as long as [community profile] snowflake_challenge happens in january. Mirrored from the original entry at Dreamwidth. Reply there using your own Dreamwidth account or OpenID!

highlander_ii: ([Rabb] hat spin)
( Jul. 21st, 2020 02:06 am)
erm - not sure who i borrowed this from. [personal profile] calliopes_pen maybe?

Look at the most recent 20 fanwork titles on your AO3 account.
(i have 21 b/c i wrote this up about a month ago and never posted it and have since added an additional fic)

the most recent 20 21 works are:

00. Comfort Food
01. Peter Parker's Pity Party
02. If You're Very Very Good
03. Better Than Flying
04. Breaking Things
05. Unlocked
06. Almost Impressed
07. A Moment of Peace
08. Wanting More
09. The Dawn is Breaking
10. Moving Forward
11. Nobody on the Road
12. Un-holed
13. Go for a Spin
14. Saw a Ghost
15. The Refill
16. Trouble
17. Camping
18. You're My Thrill
19. Time With You
20. Afterward

(1/2 of these are MCU - oh hai fandom that ate my brain, 6 are Suits, 2 are Dresden, 1 is Buffy, 1 is Van Helsing(2004))

here be questions:

1. How many are you happy with?

just the titles? um - maybe half? titles are almost harder for me than summaries


2. How many are... not great?

er - 5 or 6 for sure


3. How many did you scramble for at the last minute?

quite a few - when your FFW is due in 2 mins and the thing just NEEDS a title - you just whip something up. =)


4. How many did you know before you started writing/creating, or near the beginning?

i am absolute shit at titles, so most of them come after the fic's done. i rarely have a title picked out before i start writing. v. rarely. super v. rarely. (have a i mentioned that i'm garbage at titles?)


5. How many are quotes from songs or poems?

1 for sure, maybe 2, 3 max


6. How many are other quotes?

none, i don't think... unless you count quotes from the fic itself


7. Which best reflects the plot of the story/content of the fanwork?

'A Moment of Peace' for sure


8. Which best reflects the theme of the story/fanwork?

'The Dawn is Breaking' probably - i'm bad at 'themes'


9. Which best reflects the character voice of the story/POV of the fanwork?

'Breaking Things' and 'Un-holed'. the first is the utter disdain of Superior Iron Man, the second is Mike Ross (Suits) high af playing with his food.


10. Which is your favourite?

toss-up between 'A Moment of Peace' and 'Better Than Flying', tho i'm pretty proud of the alliteration of 'Peter Parker's Pity Party' XD Mirrored from the original entry at Dreamwidth. Reply there using your own Dreamwidth account or OpenID!

1. Comment to this entry saying 'There can be only one!' and I will pick 3 of your icons/userpics.
2. Make an entry in your own journal (or just reply if you prefer) and talk about the icons I picked!



[personal profile] calliopes_pen gave me these:



i made this one back in the days of all those 'my fandom...' icons going around. i must've been in a mood and there must've been a lot of stupid people irking me, b/c Van Helsing glaring at stupidity popped up and became an icon.




Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod from Highlander II just after he's been 'restored' to his immortal self. i think i made this one for an RP journal. if i were to make it today, it'd get some contrast and color balancing and a bit of lightening, b/c wow is that dark.




made by [personal profile] cleolinda based on her [livejournal.com profile] m15m post - The Prestige in 15 mins. i highly recommend her Movies in 15 Minutes (though she hasn't done any since she did one for The Avengers b/c RL n' shit).

so this is quotes from her M15M about the movie - where she's summarized one of the plot points - Michael Caine tells Hugh Jackman that he needs to steal Christian Bale's magic act and do it better.
