Snowflake Challenge Catch-up - Day 10 & 11



Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner


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.


I don't have the wherewithal to venture into a new fandom, but I think I would have to classify my recent foray into Artist Trading Cards are working in a new medium. There are still more things I want to try out in an artistic paper format, and I'm more willing to venture into different fandoms that way than I am to try and write a story.

Day 11
In your own space, post a rec for fannish and/or creative resources.


Oh, that's hard. Ok, if I am doing research for an SGA fic, I don't have a specific place I go all the time. I use the wikis for basic info:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stargate
http://stargate.wikia.com/wiki/Stargate_Wiki

But after that, I mostly just practise my Google-fu. Oh, and outsideth3box, I ask her things ALL the TIME. If she doesn't know, she usually knows who to ask and find out.

Not terribly helpful, but that's what I do.

I think the Artist Trading Cards are terrific! I just don't seem to have the right mindset to make my own, but I have others posted all over the house. :-)

Sometimes for weird background information I check out the LJ community little_details. They encourage you to check out the tags before posting a question (in case it's already been answered) and they want to see that you've already tried to find the information on Google, but otherwise, helpful people will chime in about medicine in the 18th century, or details about the Marines, or if a character's described injuries and actions are consistent/believable, that sort of thing. :-)

The ATCs are kinda fun to make. And since they are SMALL, it's not a huge project to make one. I like that.

Oh, cool rec. I will remember that - little details. Thanks!

TT makes the most amazing things out of the stuff I'd have thrown away. I just don't have the eye that you crafty types have! :-)
