Today I took my cats to the vet, both had been sneezing and with the low temperatures we've been having I was worried it could get worse. Thankfully they didn't need medicine, but I was told to watch them and keep them warm. It's not going to be difficult because now that she can sleep on my bed again Bella's been disappearing under the covers. At night's usually freezing. I try to see it as a win-win situation given how cold I tend to be.

I'm also happy because Ghost is getting closer to two pounds which means he's growing healthy. He was so tiny when my brother brought him home. He's definitely got an appetite now.

If you have pets, how well do they take going to the vet? Do they have a favorite napping spots? Do they steal your bed? I'd love to hear about your pets. 😊🐶🐱

Day 11


In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing.


I debated a lot over this, see, I constantly enjoy the work of many different writers, artists, mixers, etc, who create diverse and wonderful content for several fandoms in which I dabble. It seems unfair to only speak about one creator when I'm amazed almost everyday by all who make fandom a wonderful and thriving place. Be it from the Merlin fandom, DC, Marvel, Supernatural, Hannibal, The Mortal Instruments. From books, TV shows or movie fandoms, there's always brilliant work to be enjoyed.

In conclusion all I want to say is: THANK YOU! YOU'RE ALL AMAZING!

Day 10


In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs.


Okay, tbh I'm someone who absolutely loves tropes and clichés despite of how overused they are, specially if there's a big twist or the author/artist has found a new way to make them work.

🌟 Soulmates: I like the possibilities of how two individuals can be destined to be together, the issues that may arise, and the connection they have.

🌟 Enemies to lovers or friends to lovers: for some reason I've always liked couples that bicker (in a silly sarcastic way) but really love each other, and seeing their journey from disliking each other to falling in love can be very amusing. I also like when friends are oblivious to loving each other until something changes and they see what was in front of them all along.

🌟 Arranged marriages: I usually like my arranged marriages in royalty or magical settings. I also like this trope because of the journey the couple has and how they may find a middle ground and can make it work in the end.


My favorite themes in fic/art are: magic, loyalty, friendship, found families, fantasy, horror, sports, the afterlife, period pieces, spooky settings, creepy and cute creatures, slow burn, sci-fi, apocalyse/post-apocalypse, bonding, history, reincarnation, and I'm sure I'm forgetting others.

Day 7


In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something.


Oh, boy. I didn't know what to make. Here we go:

DRABBLE

Marvel | Clint Barton/Scott Lang | PG-13 | 659 words | Summary: Getting hitched in Vegas is such a cliche, but here they are.

Day 8


In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself.

🌈 I don't give up easily and persevere when I find obstacles.

🌈 I'm a curious person and I love learning new things.

🌈 I'm an animal lover. If I had the means I'd adopt every cat and puppy I find on the streets. Both my kitties are rescues and I couldn't love them more. I wish more people adopted from shelters instead of buying. I know some of you have done it and I feel grateful for that. You're awesome!




Day 9


Send feedback to two fannish people — they can be anyone you want: a writer who’s made you happy, a moderator of your favorite exchange (not us!), a fanartist you avidly follow… There are so many possibilities. Just let someone know you appreciate their work.


This is actually perfect because one of my goals this year is leaving more feedback on fanworks I enjoy.

So...DONE! 😊

Day 04


Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.

Done, done, done! 💅🏻

Day 5


In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

I always have such a difficult time narrowing it down to just a couple of works from all the ones I love. There are so many amazing fanworks out there. How can I choose? Yeah, I'm doing more than three 😉

⭐️ Inception
The Steinway!verse by toomuchplor

The alternate universe where Arthur's a pianist and Eames is a lyric baritone and their love is so lieder, omg.

This series is fantastic. It was one of the first Arthur/Eames fics I read and I go back to it from time to time to refresh my memory, and every time it's as amazing as the first.

⭐️ Supernatural
Wednesday Addams!Castiel by artsiel, powerfulweak

This series is exactly what it says, Castiel as Wednesday Addams, what's not to love about it?

⭐️ Merlin
Spirit of the Game
Despite working summers at one of Albion's oldest grounds, Merlin gave exactly zero fucks about cricket or cricketers until the day one of the visiting 1st XI, striding past in his whites, paused and crouched down to adjust his shoelaces.

Sports+Merthur+enemies to friends to lovers trope. Yes, it should read at least once because missing it would be a total shame.

This Silly Ol' Dance Is Perfect for Two by SlantedKnitting

Arthur is young, gorgeous, talented, and captain of one of the best football teams in England; his life should be perfect. But he can't keep a girlfriend for more than a few months, and it's not just because he isn't ready to settle down. When his most recent girlfriend dumps him, he has a rough night at the pub and has to be dragged home by his neighbour, Merlin. Merlin is an archivist, a Ph.D student, and he hates football almost as much as he hates Arthur. They both have their own reasons for not wanting to spend time with each other, but after that disastrous night, remaining silent neighbors doesn't seem like much of an option anymore.
Modern AU.


Yes, merthur+sports again! This one is brilliant. I love how vulnerable Arthur is in this one, and how Merlin ends up helping him and they become friends and something else too eventually.

⭐️ DCU
You could've made a safer bet by
likewinning
It's hard to call someone a dick when that's their name. Or, the one where Dick and Midnighter are roommates, and everyone eats too many Fruit Loops.

Omg, Dick/Midnighter makes me weak at the knees and this AU is so perfect and still true to their characters.

⭐️ Marvel/MCU
Money Honey by DoreyG

"So,” Scott says one day, sending him a glance that can best be described as flirtatious, “how rich actually are you?”

This one's short but soooo good. I stumbled upon it and gave it a chance despite never reading or considering Scott Lang/Hank Pym as a pairing. I don't regret it one bit.

⭐️ Hannibal
Provenance by drinkbloodlikewine, whiskeyandspite

A delightful AU about a rare book dealer, an owner of a high-end coffee shop, and murder. This does involve Hannibal Lecter, after all.

I'm just gonna say: I LOVE IT

⭐️ In the Flesh
There are Stars Inside You by owlinaminor
“We can create a world of divine love as much as we can imagine.” – Allen Ginsberg

Or, how Simon Monroe’s novel found a cover and his heart found a companion, all thanks to one brilliant move by Amy Dyer, the beautiful genius.


I usually don't favor AUs in this fandom 'cause I love the canon setting so much, but this fic is lovely.



🌟That was it for today. I almost want to rec about twenty more fics xD 🌟

⭐️ Also, if you have any sports AUs recs for any of these fandoms (or Star Wars, Star Trek, Shadowhunters/TMI...), please share away ☺️

Day 2


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.

After much consideration--I struggled so much because I feel there's a ton of works that have moved me, changed me, shaped me, that never leave me and I'll always love--I finally picked just one. My choice was a very sentimental one and one that brought me joy. Little me loved this to pieces.

The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling

When I was a kid I struggled a lot with reading on my own because of my dyslexia, my mother would sit with me and help when the words and letters shifted and I got mad. She'd read aloud for me to follow the words with my eyes and even when I got frustrated she kept doing it. I did feel safe with her reading along with me, it eased my anxiety over it. There were also comics, and bright colored books and audio-books involved. One day she borrowed a book from my brother, it was The Sorcerer's Stone. I remember complaining because I had seen the movies, obviously I did not need to read the book, I already knew what was going to happen. She told me to try it. Despite liking books--since I have a memory there was always someone reading aloud to me--some days the idea of reading one with all those pages and words seemed terribly daunting for little me. I felt like someone would come out from the shadows to laugh at me for stumbling and tripping on the words. But after some grumbling I listened to her.

Today I'm glad I did because that book changed something in me. It was the first long book I read entirely on my own, I took it calmly, little by little and by the end I felt like I could also belong at Hogwarts. I wasn't like the other kids, I felt inadequate and awkward, but if Harry, Ron and Hermione found their place, so could I.

I'll always love HP because to this day I still take a bit longer than the average person reading a paragraph, but that's okay, being different can be magical, and we all have our things that makes us unique.






Day 03


In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

Fannish goals:

📝 Write more than last year.

📝 Read more fics and comment more often, leave kudos, etc!

📝 Being more active in my fandoms. Making art, graphics, fanmixes, writing fic, helping others, etc.

📝 Don't sign up to every fest, because then it sucks when I have to pull out because of lack of time or I miss a deadline :/ I vowed to only sign up if I know I will be able to complete my work.

📝 Meet more people who share the same interests.

Personal goals:

📝 Don't skip a single meal.

📝 Read thirty books.

📝 Begin to draw again.

📝 *Maybe return to ballet :o

Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.


Um, I don't often feel comfortable with rec-cing my own stuff, but I guess new year, new experiences and me trying to not be as self-conscious as I am when it comes to my contributions to fandom (I'm working on it!). That being said I do like some of the things I've made because I've spent a huge amount of time creating them or/and because I've enjoyed making them.

1. And damned if I do and damned if I don't
This was a fanmix and graphics I made for a Dick Grayson/Jason Todd fic for the DCU Big Bang 2016. I loooooved putting together the fanmix, see, one of my favorite things is making lists and playlists and choosing every song to match the characters and the story was a lot of fun for me. As for the graphics, oh man, I could spend hours upon hours going through panels of Dick Grayson's perfect face and Jason's lovely eyes.


2. The Other Selves
A Hannigram Soulmate AU I wrote because I never get tired of those, if I had the time I'd throw those two into several universes where they are soulmates and there is nothing they can do to change it.
Summary: In a world where twin souls are meant to meet one another and be forever bound, Will Graham remains a skeptic. That is until he crosses paths with Hannibal Lecter and his own mark appears. A scar burning red. A chase begins, one paved with denial and want, until Will can no longer hide the fact he's already met his other half.


When You Walk into the Room
Rare pairings are my life and this Steve Rogers/Scott Lang fic was a lot of fun to write.
Summary: Scott is Captain America's #1 fanboy and he's not even ashamed to admit it, or that he has a thing for Steve. What's more, he's taken to flirt with Steve if only to see him blush.



That's it folks!

Your current OTP.
Oh, like I can write just one, let's see. I think Peter Parker/Wade Wilson is my OTP to end all other OTPs or something, the current Spider-Man/Deadpool series is fuel for my fiery shipping, so I don't see an end to it. And the following are the ones I wrote and/or read the most this year: Dick Grayson/Midnighter, Arthur/Merlin, Sam Wilson/Bucky Barnes, Finn/Poe, Harley/Poison Ivy, Bruce Wayne/Jason Todd, Bruce Wayne/Harvey Dent, Clint Barton/Scott Lang, Kate Bishop/America Chavez, Jane Villanueva/Michael Cordero, Hux/Kylo, Dick Grayson/Tiger, Hannibal/Will Graham, Simon Lewis/Raphael Santiago...I must be forgetting others. I'm a professional shipper tbh. 😎🙄

A pairing you initially didn’t consider but someone changed your mind.
Umm 🤔🤔🤔
Oh, I know, I read this awesome Scott Lang/Hank Pym ficlet and I was all like: damn, there should be more of that. My god, I hadn't even considered the awesome dynamic they have, and it is glorious.

A pairing you wish you shipped, but just can't.
I'm not sure if I wish I shipped it, but for the life of me I can't get into Sherlock/John (to clarify I'm referring to BBC Sherlock because if we're talking Guy Ritchie's movies then I'm all for that), I just can't, I don't see the appeal, I like them way more as friends. Sometimes I think it's a shame because I know there's some awesome johnlock fics out there I will never read.
There's also Jason Todd/Tim Drake, I can stand it, even read it sometimes...I just rather not ☺️

What was the first thing you ever contributed to a fandom?
It was probably a very awful Drabble 😑 I only officially started posting stuff last year, so I feel it hasn't been long and the awfulness is still there hahah

Have you added anything stupid/cracky/hilarious to your fandom, if so, what?
I don't think so 🤔

What’s the longest you’ve ever been in a fandom? What fandom was it?
Are we talking about been active? If so, see above👆🏼, it's only been a year.

What was your first fandom?
Supernatural, what else? Then Marvel and DC at the same time.

One fandom, two fandoms...Collapse )
