The holidays might be behind us, but that doesn't mean that we can't get some neat prezzies. *g*

Could it be that you've always wanted to have icons for a favourite character or ship? Maybe a cool header or fabulous style for your journal/Twitter/Tumblr? Perhaps you're looking for recs on a favourite trope/bulletproof kink/favourite character and/or ship?

Let's have fun today and talk a little about our fannish wishes, yeah?

Day 10

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

1) Anything awesome related to Kili/Tauriel. (Art? Fic? Podfic? Icons? etc…) I have a tiny new obsession. (You can find some prompts here if you want to make something…)

2) Cover art for a podfic of Welcome to Halloween Town (as there is a podfic of this in the works)

3) Podfic, as enumerated in my Dear Podficcer Letter

Day 2

In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

1) The Kili/Tauriel Fest! It's new, but the few of us who haunt the place are having fun coming up with prompts and celebrating this pairing from The Hobbit fandom.

2) Amplificathon on DW or on LJ is a community to post your podfic on. This is the community that helped me connect with the podfic community. There are fests during the year, and a whole lot of podfic gets posted on those sites.

3) #ITPE - The Informal Twitter Podfic Exchange (@ITPE_Mod) is a podfic exchange that takes place in the last couple of months of the year, with reveals at Christmas. I've done it two years in a row and this year it really got be back to podficcing. The Mods are amazing, and do *so much* work to make it work. I can't wait for next year to do it again.

Day 9

In your own space, rec at least 3 fanworks you thought you wouldn't like (because they weren't your fandom or they pushed against your boundaries or you thought you just wouldn't be interested) but you ended up loving. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I don't push my boundaries very often, but…

1) [Podfic of] When Fics Take on a Life of Their Own ([0:28:32] A fanfic writer and Feminist Ryan Gosling discuss celebrity culture, gender and theory, and the political perils of Fassavoy fic. (Dual-voice podfic by Cath and Klb) ) - So…I heard about this story in the Resonance podfic podcast. I don't generally listen to podfics that I haven't read the story for, and especially not ones for fandoms I don't romp about in. …But this one sounded interesting, so I gave it a try…and I really enjoyed it! If you like well-voiced fandom meta at all, give this podfic featuring Feminist Ryan Gosling a try.

2) Letters, the Writing Of by earlgreytea68 - Okay. I think that everyone knows that I love earlgreytea68's fic. Like, a lot. But I am not that big a fan of angst generally and I knew that this one would be painful. I tried it anyway…and I loved it so much that I ended up podficcing it. It's a Sherlock BBC fic with this summary: "While he's dead, Sherlock writes John letters." Yeah. It's ouchy, but so very good.

3) This cover of Far over the misty mountains cold by str8voices. You know what? I'm really picky about cover versions of songs. In fact, the first time I heard this I wasn't sure I liked it. But then? I listened again…and now I love it. So there.

Yeah. I'm totally doing this out of order. I guess that's just how I roll?

Day One

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.

Okay. I'm going to go ahead and recommend:

1) My podfic of A Brief History of Liars by jibrailis. It's a story that takes place in Garth Nix's Old Kingdom. This podfic is only about 15 minutes long, but something about it really sticks with me. Also? I sing a tiny bit in it. (Rated teen)

2) My podfic of Four Ways Marcella Could Have Ended Up Working For Martin and One Way She Did by linaerys. It's also about 15 minutes long, but this one is in the Grosse Pointe Blank fandom. I adore Marcella. It was so fun to look at the ways she might have met Martin. (This one is Gen)

3) I used to write a bit? And this is something I wrote that still amuses me: Swimming. It's a little bit of 10/Rose fluff from the Doctor Who fandom.

So…there you go.Three things that I made. :)
