Snowflake Challenge 2018 - Day 3

WHOO! Three days in a row! I'm on a roll!

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner 2018

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.

Oh my gosh. SO MANY! But ok, even though there are easily a bazzillionty things I could rave about, I will rec some things I have read / viewed recently. Because recent! And top of mind. And, as will be apparent, I'm still on my HP kick!

Somebody to Love by [personal profile] khasael

This is such a sweet story of Draco making the choice to make the best of the little time he has left after being cursed. I love watching him accept his inevitable fate and choose the make the best of it - try to bridge the gap in the relationship between his mother and aunt, make the effort to get to know Teddy, and even suck it up and deal with Harry Potter... such a lovely read.

Podfic of Erosmancy by [personal profile] astolat, read by [personal profile] lazulus.

First of all, it's an excellent fic. [personal profile] astolat, as always, writes and interesting and engaging story. But [personal profile] lazulus brings it alive. I have grabbed everything she's podficced and I love listening to her read. Delightful!

And because I happened upon it again recently, a fun fave that combines my love of Harrison Ford movies and SGA! These don't actually go together, but they *totally* go together!

To start, read this fun little fic, Raiders of the Lost City by [personal profile] melagan, which is an utter hoot! Then, have a gander at this lovely artwork, McShep Indiana Jones by randommindtime. You would think they did it on purpose!

So, there you are - go! Read! Listen! View! Enjoy!

Snowflake Challenge 2018 - Day 4

Another day, another Snowflake...

In your own space, create a fannish wishlist. No limits on size or type of fanwork; just tell us what you’d like to see. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. And if you grant a wish, do the same thing!

I think I still hope for the same thing I wished last year - and I have already seen the same echoed by a number of people I read - fan art is THE BOMB!

On a side note, I did get my wish fulfilled a bit this year when I was bemoaning the fact that I wanted a very specific image of Draco for the story I am writing, and the wonderful and talented [personal profile] danceswithgary just went and created a manip for me! And when I finish my story, you too can see this fabulous art! Which is just another reason *I MUST FINISH!*

Anyway... yeah. Fan art for a fic just seems so awesome to me because it means someone who actually has art talent liked something I wrote well enough to try and interpret it. And that is so many kind of flattering and Squee inducing. I think the same is true of podfic; if anyone ever felt the desire to record one of my stories, I'd be delighted.

In addition to that... well. McShep is my SGA OTP, but I also adore reading McKay with Cadmen, because Rodney + Laura= snark and heat and I am totally down with that. Also, Vala and John as a pairing was shockingly pleasing. So more of those, at any time, would be pleasing to me.
