Day 3

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

It doesn't have to be anything complex - it can be feedback for a fanwork or discussing something you might have in common or even simply admiring their icon. The point is to reach out to someone you normally wouldn't and connect with them, even if it's only for the briefest moment.

I did it.

Connection is a large part of what fandom is. Take the time to let creators know you've enjoyed their work.

Day 2

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.

[Remember that by fanwork, we are talking about: all forms of creativity. From meta to fic writing to picspamming to hosting a comment-fic-meme to running a challenge, to vidding and podficcing and reccing and pretty much anything you can think of. Crafts, knitted items, repurposed rubber duckies, finger puppets. Pimping posts. Guides to timelines, tattoos, quotes, nit-picky canon guides, episode recaps, synopses, beta work. If you think it's creative, then it definitely fits under the heading "fanwork."]


I decided to go with older (much loved by me) works that newer members of fandom may not have seen.

Rec 1.  Into the Light - Spike/Buffy  by [livejournal.com profile] jen_nsync_landl


Rec 2.
Legions of True Hearts - Buffy/William  by [livejournal.com profile] eurydice72


Rec 3.
Are We Friends? and its sequel Just a Summer Romance Spike/Buffy by [livejournal.com profile] slaymesoftly


Rec 4. Future Imperfect - Spike/Buffy and Butterfly Effect - Spike/Buffy by Cousinjean



I'm going to stop there, although I could go on and on... there are just so many wonderful stories out there! Treat yourself, go and read (or reread) an older fic and don't forget to let the author know that it is still loved!

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.


Here are four of my favourite fics...

Rec 1: The Longest Night

Written December 2007

Rated PG - A few years post Chosen, a prophecy is revealed, and it falls to Buffy to prevent the end of the Slayer line.


I love this one because I am very proud of how much story and emotion I managed to put into so few words.

~*~

Rec 2: We All Have Destinations

Written July 2006

A short Buffy pov set post Not Fade Away

As with the one above, I love how much story and emotional punch I was able to put into this little ficlet.

~*~

Rec 3. A Grain of Sand - Spike/Buffy (complete)
Rated M15+ - Set in Season 6 somewhere around 'Life Serial' and goes very AR from there as slayer and vampire find themselves scouring dimensions. Will their search be in vain? And what will they learn along the way?

This is one of my favourites because of all the different worlds and the subtle (or not so subtle) differences in those worlds that came about due to a small change to canon in that dimension. I had a lot of fun writing this one and enjoyed tying all my little ends up the way I wanted them at the end.

Rec 4. Time Around Me Whispers - Spike/Buffy
Written 16th September, 2005
Rated R 18+ - Spuffyverse rewrite of 'Bargaining'

This is another of my favourites because it can still make me (and others) cry when I read it. I love a story to evoke an emotional response--if people tell me a story I wrote made them laugh/cry/angry etc then I am a very happy author.
