I just got an idea. Let’s try this out, fellow fic peeps. Post the following:

1) Something old- A blurb from one of the first fics you’ve ever written.

2) Something new- A snippet from something you’re currently working on, or from the last thing you posted.

3) Something borrowed- A scene or selection of dialogue from another writer's story. Maybe something that inspired or resonated with you. (Credit the writer and link to it if possible, please.)

4) Something blue- C'mon, you know you've written a really gut-wrenching bit of angst at some point. Let's hear the saddest or angstiest thing you've got. Alternatively? Tell us about the last time you described the color blue.

Tag whoever you can think so and get to reblogging. All fandoms/fanships welcome.

I was curious, so I decided to assemble the first lines from the last 21 stories I posted to AO3. I also did some stats because I like stats.

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, 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.


It took a lot longer to finish this than it should have.

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. Drop a link to your wish-list in this post. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

Full Day 2 information

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. 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 and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.


There were a couple of vids I really want to rec here, but I can't find them online anymore and I don't have a lot of identifying information for them. If anyone happens to know how to find them, please share.

Fandom: Highlander
Media: Vid
Song: "Blue Monday" by Orgy
Featured Characters: Duncan and Methos
Reason for rec: While I'm not a Duncan fan, I loved the dynamic between Duncan and Methos that the fanvid creator brought out in this video. The vid, itself, was well crafted, and it's old enough that it might have been done with VCRs and creative use of a pause button (though I think it was too good for that).

Fandom: Big Wolf on Campus
Media: Vid
Song: I don't remember. The song title had the word hero in it, and might have been "Holding Out for Hero" or something similar.
Featured Characters: Merton
Reason for rec: The vidder set up the idea that Merton was going to be the one in need of a hero (as he often was on the show), then subverted that and showed how he was the hero. Not only was a Merton-centric vid interesting, but highlighting the different roles he played was refreshing.

Fandom: Teen Wolf (MTV)
Media: Fanfic
Title: No Answer
Word Count: 17,867
Author: [livejournal.com profile] fountainxxpenny
Summary: Sick of the weirdness, Melissa is determined to get an explanation from Scott.
Reason for rec: I've recced this story before and I'll rec it again, as often as I can. Not only does the author take on one of my favorite tropes (a supernatural character being outed to his/her family), but she really develops the characters' responses and reactions to the situation they find themselves in in a believable way. Furthermore, the viewpoint character is Scott's mother, so we get to see all the surprise and shock from inside her head.

SNOWFLAKE CHALLENGE - DAY 1

Full Day 1 Information

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. Drop a link to your post in the comments.


As a fanfic writer, I have a pretty decent range of what I'll attempt writing and I like to try new things. I enjoy playing outside my comfort zone, even if I'm not always impressed with the results. However, what defines me as a fanfic writer is probably a propensity for taking small moments in real life and examining them. That may be off-handed comments or common scenarios, or it may be Big Issues via the focus on a little piece of what it means to be dealing with that issue.

Recs as follows:


Title: Bright Spots
Fandom: Do Over
Summary: Pat accidentally proves to Joel that the 80s had their good points.
Word Count: 1959
Reason for rec: This is one of my most recent stories, written as a Yuletide treat. It's the only story in this fandom. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, especially because mostly all that happens is banter and the dropping of a lot of 80s pop culture references. I've never been good at writing banter, so a story that features it and works pleases me.

Title: Proud of You
Fandom: Teen Wolf (MTV)
Summary: Despite all that he's become, Scott is still searching for something he couldn't find as a human--his father's approval.
Word Count: 7844
Notes: The story is woven around the middle episodes of season 1, starting sometime before "The Tell" and finishing the day after "Night School." Spoilers abound.
Reason for rec: On the show, Scott's father is mentioned twice, but he's never shown and we have no information about where he is or why he's not in the picture. I wanted to write a story that played with Scott's werewolf issues, but I wanted it against a framework of real life issues. I also wanted to examine Scott more as a person, so the story was also to intended to show the kind of person he might become, or might have become had it not been for the werewolf issues. I feel like I achieved all of these things.

Title: Shadowed
Fandom: Teen Wolf (MTV)
Summary: Scott learns more about the effects of the moon.
Word Count: 938
Reason for rec: Again, this was to look at who Scott was when he wasn't being afflicted with werewolf issues. In this case, it was about charting his day as a "normal boy." I like the hopefullness of the piece.

I'm wrestling with a lot of stories right now, most of which refuse to cooperate. With the timing of everything, but especially work and an unexpected amount of crap going on there, I'm feeling very creatively drained. Since it's worked well in the past, I've decided to follow [livejournal.com profile] fikgirl's lead. She's always been a good influence:
