Day 11
In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

So, I don't know if I talked about this author before. (I mean, in the context of raving; I'm sure I've mentioned them before.) But really, honestly, the person who both influenced my career path into politics and definitely opened my world in terms of slash fanfiction - as a legitimate, okay field to be in, not a dirty secret (which is what I, as a super-religious kid, had seen it as before) - and really sparked my love for AUs is Lightning on the Wave.

This amazing, stunning author put so much goddamned effort into their stories. Like - I can't even believe. They wrote their own Harry Potter books, and I mean that one-hUNDRED PERCENT literally. They had stories that were just as long if not longer than the books, just as intricate and well-crafted as the real series. This is absolutely beautiful. There is nothing I loved better than those stories. I literally went to high school with no sleep at all because I was finishing another chapter of this story.

And the interesting thing is that it's not just politics - it's right and wrong, ethics and morality, light and dark. It's a real discussion into what is really 'evil' and what isn't. It portrays a lot of characters in new light, takes small characters and blows them large. As much as I love Sirius Black, this really turns his story on its head, turns the idea of what is "good" on its head, and I just - if you have hours to devote to this series, I highly recommend it. There is such a wealth and depth in this series - beautiful, Stunning.

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

Okay so like I absolutely loVE A/B/O. I really really do. I think it has to do with the fact that werewolves are my thing, and the two are very close. I really like the porn aspect, obviously, but also - the casual intimacy, the nuzzling behaviors, the protective instincts and knowing you were valued to your alpha - all of that really presses all my buttons. You can often find that in Sentinel/Guide fics, too - which is also why I'll add a Sherlock and Losers rec that are just amazing.

Another beautiful trope is miscommunication/misunderstandings. I love it when two idiots in love just don't talk to one another. (I love it in my fanfic, and the angst that comes with it - not so much in reality or even in movies I watch, when talking about adults who are supposed to be adults) [Also most Steve/Bucky/Tony stories use this trope and it gets me eVERY TIME]

Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

There's so many things I read that I love so much, and so many authors. So, honestly, I'm going to rec author instead of works (but I'll mention one of their fics that I love too so it's kinda still the same).

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.
