Day 14

Go forth and commit an act of kindness.

DONE. ☺️

Day 15


In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share you love and squee as loud as you want to.

To Fandom,

dear fandom in you I have found a place where my imagination can run free and my ideas can come alive. Where I can find the wonderful work of others who share similar interests and where I've also met some amazing people. I love fandom and I hope this year is a good one for all of us.🤓☺️


To the Merlin fandom,

You are one of the nicest, most wonderful and thankfully still active fandoms I've had the fortune to come across. Thank you for still being here and producing work I love. 💕 Thank you to everyone who keeps this fandom alive. You are MAGICAL. ✨✨

To the Hannibal fandom,

I love you fannibals dearly. You're smart, wonderful people, and I love how most of you will go down --like me-- with the show and Hannigram. 🍴🍷❤️


And to all of my other fandoms (I dabble here and there): Thank you for existing. 🙌🏻

Stolen from sictransits. This meme looked fun, I simply had to ☺️

If your life was a movie, what would the soundtrack be? Open your music library (iTunes or whatever), put it on shuffle and press play. For every question, type the song that's playing. When you go to a new question, press the next button. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool and choose songs to fit with the setting.🎼

Day 13


In your own space, write about a moment in fandom that meant a lot to you.

Fandom in general means a lot to me. It's a place where I can find like-minded people, and not just in regards to fandom. I've gotten the chance to meet fabulous people and that's been both important and fantastic for me.

Also, that one time I was one of the top three fillers on [community profile] comment_fic😂💅🏽. I was on a roll 🔥 I never write so much in one sitting.

I've officially started my reading challenge today, my goal is to read 30 books in 2017. I pledged to so over at Goodreads. In addition to that sugar_cherries posted about this awesome reading challenge she plans to do and I decided to join in. That way I can find my next book and do both challenges at the same time.

My first book ticks the collection of short stories box and is one I've been wanting to read. My friend K got it for me as a birthday present, and gives me the perfect opportunity to go through the pile of unread books I have.



The Girl on the Fridge by Etgar Keret is a collection of his best short stories. It's less than 200 pages and each story appears to be an easy and quick read. Also, I love the cover. I first encountered Keret's work when I picked up Kneller's Happy Campers and I was pleasantly surprised when I couldn't put it down until I reached the last page. This novella was the inspiration for the movie Wristcutters: A Love Story which became one of my favorites. So I have high expectations for The Girl on the Fridge, we'll see once I finish it.

Day 12


In your own space, post a rec for fannish spaces and resources - comms, challenges, twitters, tumblrs, etc. Tell us about where you hang out.

There two communities where I hang out almost every week:

[profile] camelot_drabble despite the show ending years ago the Merlin fandom is still active and producing awesome works. This community focuses on dabbles and drawbles and each Friday there's a new prompt challenge.

[community profile] comment_fic in this community you can find several prompts following the theme of the day, and there's a huge possibility you will find one that inspire you. I'm hosting there this week! If you're interested come join us!

I also like:

[profile] avengers_2k for anything related to The Avengers. Here you can find fics, fanmixes, art, etc. If you're a fan of the MCU I recommend this comm.

[community profile] batfic every time I feel like reading Batman/Batfam fic I go to this community and without a fail there's always a fic that catches my attention.

[community profile] femslash100 I used to post a lot to this comm, and I want to get back to it because I feel like there is not enough femslash out there. They have great prompts and challenges and so many drabbles to read you'll be busy.

Writer's block and lack of inspiration can be a hindrance when trying to write, Unlocking Writer's Block is a great place to visit to try and wake the muses from their slumber. Here you'll find writing exercises, prompts, resources and tips.

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! 😊
