Day 8

In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.



ahahaha

Something I like about myself.

Well that's going to be harder since it seems like I just hate myself more as time goes by but here goes.

  • I'm a pretty decent writer.

  • I really do enjoy teaching and I think I'm pretty good at it.

  • ... I don't really yell at the kids? I mean, sometimes I have to shout students down, and I do use sarcasm with them sometimes, but I definitely don't harangue them the way I've heard other teachers do

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


To make something that's not excessively long but also can count... I'm really bad at this. At writing short stories (that make sense on their own, at least).

So I'm going to try out the snowflake challenge again!

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I have a few stories I really like, and that I enjoyed writing a lot!

The Animal Within - my first really, full-length story. I really tried to weave the movie almost perfectly into my story, and I think I succeeded. Pairings: Carlos "Cougar" Alvarez/Jake Jensen, Jolene/Linwood "Pooch" Porteous, Aisha al-Fadhil/Franklin Clay. Word count: ~174,000. Chapter count: 42. Summary: Chosen to receive an experimental injection, Jake Jensen manages to screw up the whole program. Rejected by the rest of his fellow experiments, he finds his way to Col. Clay's unit and lives his life as something... other.

A Broken World (Can Be Rebuilt) - this was a really fun story to write, and I have a bunch more ideas in this universe... if I ever get around to writing it. Pairings: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Clint Barton/Phil Coulson/Natasha Romanoff. Word count: ~42,000. Chapter count: 1. Summary: In the final battle, the portal to the Chitauri homeworld was destroyed, Gabrael fell, and all the upper members of the Host - and no few lesser members as well - retreated to the High Plane, leaving two thousand lesser members of the Host to try and rebuild the ravaged, post-apocalyptic Earth, as well as hunt down the remaining Chitauri. When Michael loses his sword and ends up running into Sabrael and Sabrael's initiate, Coulson, it sets forth a chain reaction that will either tear the earth apart or lay the firm foundation for Earth's healing. Or, the AU where the Avengers are members of the Host, SHIELD are all actually Initiates who handle the Host through metnal connections, and the Chitauri are an evil sweeping through the dimensions that the Host are sworn to protect.

You Were Always Ohana, You Stupid Bastard - I really like space stories. I really do. Gen. Word count: ~1,700. Chapter count: 1. Summary: He crashed into her life over fifteen years ago, stayed for three months, and abandoned them. She's been searching, all this time, and finally, Lilo, captain of the pirate ship O, has finally found the last piece of her ohana. On a ship that's transporting prisoners from one maximum security prison to another.

Starships (were meant to fly) - again, I really love space stories. Pairings: Carlos "Cougar" Alvarez/Jake Jensen. Word count: ~4,300. Chapter count: 1. Summary: Kugar was part of the Imperial Navy, but it wasn't until he got assigned to Roque and Clay at the same time Zox did that he really felt like his decision was worth it. And then, well, and then they got Jensen, and then MXCorp blew up a planetary system, and it's just... It's been a while, he's saying, but the waiting - the waiting is what kills him sometimes. That, and sometimes it gets so grokking hard to breathe.

seen from [livejournal.com profile] reeby10 and it looked pretty cool!

Top 5 Hits

  • Diamonds Do Not Equal Love (but they sure mean something). Avengers/MCU. 23,498 hits. Tony/Natasha, Tony/Clint, Tony/Thor. A/B/O, bad past relationships. Intended to be a polyamory A/B/O fic and it didn't work out the way I envisioned it. It's still one of my favorite stories I wrote. Tony is courted by the rest of the Avengers to be the pack omega by gifting him with jewelry.

  • The Animal Within. The Losers (2010). 19,351 hits. Carlos Alvarez/Jake Jensen, Aisha al-Fadhil/Franklin Clay, Linwood Porteous/Jolene. This was my first long fic, and I don't think I will ever write something as long as this again. This is pretty much rewriting the whole movie, adding a pre-canon and post-canon, plus shapeshifting and magic.

  • The One Time Pepper Gave Bad Relationship Advice (and Natasha's a Scary-Ass Motherfucker). Avengers/MCU. 15,823 hits. Tony/Clint. Past abuse, BDSM, miscommunication. This is... actually one of the like four fics of mine that I actively don't like. This is a BDSM fic with dom!Tony and sub!Clint, and them trying to messily work together despite others' well-meaning but meddling advice.

  • Being a Guide in the 21st Century. Avengers/MCU. 13,809 hits. Pre-slash, Steve/Tony. This was actually a throwaway fic I didn't expect people to like so much! Guides and Sentinels, where Steve is a newly defrosted guide and JARVIS meddles to have him help pull Sentinel Tony out of a flashback.

  • I Don't Want the World to See Me. Avengers/MCU. 10,821 hits. Pre-slash, Tony/Thor. I had a lot of fun writing it, but also didn't expect this to do as well as it did. Tony has a disability that he spent his life hiding, and slowly the Avengers come to realize what it was.


Top 5 Kudos Earners

  • Diamonds Do Not Equal Love (but they sure mean something). Avengers/MCU. 1,765 kudos. Tony/Natasha, Tony/Clint, Tony/Thor. A/B/O, bad past relationships. Intended to be a polyamory A/B/O fic and it didn't work out the way I envisioned it. It's still one of my favorite stories I wrote. Tony is courted by the rest of the Avengers to be the pack omega by gifting him with jewelry.

  • I Don't Want the World to See Me. Avengers/MCU. 1,209 kudos. Pre-slash, Tony/Thor. I had a lot of fun writing it, but also didn't expect this to do as well as it did. Tony has a disability that he spent his life hiding, and slowly the Avengers come to realize what it was.

  • The Kid (will be alright). Avengers/MCU. 746 kudos. Steve/Tony. Kid!fic. I see bby!Tony as this sharp-tongued fierce little kitten, and wanted to share that vision. Tony gets turned into a kid and becomes a trial to everyone around him.

  • The Beat of My Drum (the sound of my heart). Avengers/MCU. 631 kudos. Steve/Tony, Clint/Tony. A/B/O fic, miscommunication, Clint/Tony endgame. This is actually based a little on Anne Bishop's book on dancing. Tony has never had a heat before, and when Steve offered to see him through his first one, misunderstandings abound - misunderstandings that Clint helps to clear up.

  • Five Times Tony Hid Throughout His Life (And One Time He Didn't). Avengers/MCU. 613 kudos. Gen. Sick!fic. I really enjoyed this one, too. Stark men are made of iron - which meant no sickdays. (Of course, Tony still gets sick. He just doesn't like admitting it.)


Top 5 Bookmarked Stories


  • Diamonds Do Not Equal Love (but they sure mean something). Avengers/MCU. 775 bookmarks. Tony/Natasha, Tony/Clint, Tony/Thor. A/B/O, bad past relationships.

This is a BDSM fic with dom!Tony and sub!Clint, and them trying to messily work together despite others' well-meaning but meddling advice.

Well, unsurprisingly, Avengers is my main fandom.

Day 10: Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or check out some fanworks that are new to you.

So... it's not really new, per se, but I've never written in this fandom before so I gave it a shot. In all honesty, I almost did something based off of Agent Carter because I loved that pilot episode so much, but I figured I already had an idea for this pairing, why not get it out.

So I wrote a small (small) fic in the Merry Gentry series, found here.

Day 6: In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art, meta, or a rec list. A picspam. Something.

Okay, I don't want to say I have OCD because that's a self-diagnosis and discrediting to people who legitimately have that - but I can't do things out of order. It pisses me off and makes me feel as if I failed at the thing I'm trying to do.

So I'm days behind because I'm still trying to do this. But. Here's my link.

Also, yes, it was written for another challenge (pic for 1000 words), but I figure I can count it here, right? Since I did write it within the last two or three days.

Day 3: In your own space, talk about your creative process - from what inspires you to what motivates you to how you manage to break through blocks. Does your process change depending on the type of creating you're doing?

Inspiration:
So first thing I guess I should say is that my (tiny) party trick is that I can take a character, a setting, and an adjective or mood and come up with a fairly good plot (to my way of thinking, but I'm biased, so). Inspiration has never been the problem - songs, other movies, other fics, gifsets, kinkmeme prompts: all of it and none of it can create plot ideas.

Motivation:
This is where the problem comes in. I'm an inherently selfish person, I'm learning, and I like praise even if I don't think I deserve it, so a lot of my motivation gets hindered by the fact that my fics are actually not as great as I think they are. I know not much will come of them, so it makes it hard to push through. Add to that I'm supposed to be in grad school (hah) writing a respectable prospectus, I'm teaching fourth grade and coming up with lesson plans, and I'm just plain lazy, and a lot of motivation is gone. I have over forty, I think, unfinished original and fandom fiction sitting on my desktop.

Writer's Block:
Hah. I don't really push through? When I have to - for challenges that I signed up for, for example - I can do it, but in general if it's a personal project, there's not much that happens. Generally speaking I try to write at least one sentence a day if I want to finish a story, and I don't close the document until it's complete or at the point where I'm not going to continue it ever or at all.

Types of creation:
I'm a very limited individual. I don't have any interesting skills, really, beyond being able to type fast. I only write fiction, so my process more or less remains the same regardless. The only variance is between challenge fiction and personal stories and plots, because fiction challenges I more or less finish, while personal stories almost never get finished.

My Writing Process:
In short, the process on the whole looks like this: I find a plot idea I'm actually willing to open a new word document for, and begin typing. Depending on how late or how much time I have, I normally get at least a page before I minimize the document and move away. I'll come back over the next couple of weeks, depending on how much that plot has weighed on my mind versus my teaching responsibilities (because let's face it I'm ignoring my graduate student responsibilities so hard). Eventually I'll either have that idea pushed out of the front of my mind by a different idea, and it will languish in my unfinished fic folder, or I'll complete the story.

Day 2: 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.

I feel like there's not a lot of point of putting down what I want but maybe I can use this as a reference to go back to for fic ideas?

Prompt 1: I'm still desperately interested in seeing a polyamorous fanfic from the Losers, with Pooch, Cougar, and Jensen all interested in Jolene, who just moved to their small town. She doesn't know how to pick and doesn't really want to pick just one, and they move towards a foursome with one another in the end.

Prompt 2: I love modern AUs of all kinds, and particularly would love a modern AU of the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings. Worldbuilding is a serious kink of mine, so seeing how they travel in a 'modernized' Middle Earth would be amazing, let alone rethinking the quest (either one) and remaking the obstacles faced.

Prompt 3: I like the concept of Teen Wolf, as I love werewolves/shapeshifters in general. I only watched season 1, though, unable to really stomach the ridiculousness of it so far (I keep making half-hearted attempts; who knows, one of them might succeed). So any AU, from coffee shop to high school, veternarian to dystopian future, centered around Derek Hale in a leadership position he never wanted but feels he should keep because he's the last survivor of his family, while Scott is a better choice and someone Derek would love to give the leadership to if only he could find a way to do so without betraying his parents'/sister's/family's expectations and legacy...

and because I'm greedy

Prompt 4: Tony Stark is my surefire, almost-never-miss-the-mark, character, so him at the center of any MCU fic, canon or not, AU or not, would be amazing. But a particular plot that has currently kicked me in the gut recently was a Star Wars-themed Avengers fic, perhaps incorporating all Phase 1 and Phase 2 movies currently out...

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner

So basically I saw this and thought why not? Maybe I'll actually finish this challenge... even though yes, I'm a day behind. I figure I can try, right?
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.

A Broken World (Can Be Rebuilt) - I just... really liked the idea I had here. Sorry. I was very physically and emotionally disappointed at the effort I put in vs. what people actually thought of it.

The Animal Within - This one, I'm actually really proud of. It's the first fic I actually finished, and it made me confident. Maybe too confident, but there you go.

Lion's Shadow - I liked this one. I like shapeshifters, and it was fun to write, even if it felt like a lot of effort on something not well-liked.
