Alright so I'm jumping on the bandwagon a couple of days late to participant in the [community profile] snowflake_challenge.

My main (only? 2013 was actually kinda bitchin. The latter half, anyway) regret about last year is how thoroughly I fell out of fandom. I was sad about various of my Marvel fics-in-progress getting jossed (sometimes literally!), not that interested in writing HP or Merlin, and utterly unable to finish anything Star Trek. Sigh. And when I can't write, I feel like I'm not participating, and I stop reading, which sucks. SO! There is this challenge, which I'm hoping will reawaken my fannish glee. I'm gonna start from day 1, even though I'm late, and hopefully catch up as the challenge progresses.

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.

(note: some of these are super old! given my fandom-fail the last year, that shouldn't be a surprise. I've tried to pick things that I feel give an overview of Me And Fandom.)

Tell Me About It [Harry Potter, James Sirius/Scorpius, Albus/Scorpius, explicit, 4500 words]

This fic makes me cackle every time I think of it. I have no idea where it came from, only that I wrote it probably in the space of a couple of hours. BASICALLY, Scorpius decides he's going to seduce one or more Potter brothers, failing to realise that they have plans of their own. As someone said in a comment, James and Al are "about an inch away from being very bad Potters indeed and getting closer than the average bros". I like the sneakiness of all participants. My favourite parts to write, and to reread, are the scenes between Al and James, because they're such little shits.

Rebellion (And Suffering the Consequences) [Harry Potter, Draco/James Sirius, explicit, 21000 words]

In this fic, James is young and pretty broken up still over discovering his father's infidelity when he gets a job working under Draco Malfoy and begins an affair of his own.

Okay. I wasn't going to include this one, but after a bit of thought, I realised that my 'fandom experience' would be woefully incomplete if I didn't acknowledge this fic. There's a lot in here that is very personal, and it's only in the last year or so that I've reread it and managed to get all the way through it. In some ways I like it. I know that some readers were dissatisfied with the ending, and I totally understand why. Narratively, the thing that happened should not have happened. I want to shake James until his teeth rattle and make him run in the other direction. But a lot of the reason I'm proud of this fic is that they are pretty much all very flawed people, and they don't do what they should. They do what they want, even in the face of the knowledge that it's wrong. Another thing I really like about this fic is James and Draco's profession. Basically, wizarding lawyers.

We Pull These Jobs to Make A Little Money (No One Gets Hurt if They Don't Act Funny) [Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, explicit, 49000 words]

In which Arthur and the knights are bank robbers, and Merlin is a (temporarily) unwitting employee of their latest target. AKA in which Leashy attempts plot with some degree of success! I had to include this one because I spent so long writing it, so long bending my flist's ears about it, and so long dancing around the room when I finally finished it.

The Wrong Avalon [Merlin x Doctor Who, Arthur/Merlin, Amy/Rory, teen, 12000 words]

A crossover! *le gasp* I've never really written crossovers, and certainly not long ones. These two fandoms just seemed at the time I started writing (around s5 of Doctor Who, between s2 and 3 of Merlin) to be absolutely crying out for some crossover action. The basic premise is that when Merlin sent Arthur to Avalon, he really should have specified mystical island, rather than intergalactic space hotel, OOPS. Epic fail, Merlin, epic fail. So, the Doctor takes Amy and Rory there for their honeymoon, and that's when the characters meet. Naturally, the Doctor can't help interfering, and even more naturally, True Love Conquers All. I like this one primarily because I feel like I really nailed 11's style of speech, and managed to hit the single-episode-adventure feel that I enjoyed about both shows at the time.

The Only Tune I Like [Marvel, Tony/Pepper, 3200 words]

Aaaaand my most recent fandom, hurrah. SO, there's a moment early on in The Avengers when Pepper whispers something incentive-like to Tony and his face, you guys oh my god. I was genuinely distracted from the next five minutes of the film because PEGGING PEGGING THAT WAS TOTALLY ABOUT PEGGING. So that's what this is. The pegging fic I was promising myself from my first viewing of the film. I like this because it's a canon pairing! Wait, come back, that sounded odd. The thing is, me and canon? Meh. We're nodding acquaintances at best. Generally I am too desperate for any little bit of queer representation to get too invested in canon (invariably het) ships but Tony and Pepper? Yes please. Eternally yes please.

The main reason I like this fic is because writing Tony Stark is never not fun, but it is also very often angsty and kind of draining (issues re: intelligence, parents, alcohol. If I was a) cooler, b) fictional and c) a very wealthy dude, I like to believe I would be Tony Stark), so this little porny interlude was a whole bunch of fun to write. Also, Pepper is a queen, a flawless HBIC, and I would never turn down the opportunity to write her rendering Tony non-verbal.

And that's it! I will try to do the next couple of days soon as I am unexpectedly un-busy until Sunday, woot.

Guys! I know that I am a complete toad when it comes to updating and stuff, but I promise I'm working on it. I'm thinking that if I write it down here then I will feel like a wanker for not doing it. By 'it', I mean the following ridiculously overlong list of stuff.

I solemnly swear that I will finish writing this shit... )

oshit that's LOTS.
