Snowflake Challenge--- Day 14
In your own space, write a love letter. Write it Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist. Share you love and squee as loud as you want to. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Despite how much I might whine about the HP Fandom, I probably wouldn't be who I am without it. HP helped shape me and discover so many things I'm passionate about and bring me joy. I discovered some amazing art and it help me strengthen friendships that long distance cause strains to. It helped me make many new friends.

So Thank You. Harry Potter.

Snowflake Challenge--- Day 13
In your own space, talk about setting yourself a fannish goal. Big or small, it doesn't matter. Some great examples include: complete a bingo, sign-up for a Big Bang, write that fic you've been thinking about for years, podfic that story that you love, make a fanmix for your fandom, post that bit of meta or reclist you keep postponing. Maybe resolve to be better at leaving feedback, or answering comments. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I Definitely Want to make it my goal to finish at least, 3 fanfic ideas I been juggling with. To write something bigger than a one-shot.
to write something very detailed and layered and a good, solid character exploration-fleshing out piece.

Snowflake Challenge--- Day 12
In your own space, talk about what you think the future holds for fandom. What are your hopes and dreams for fandom? Do you have any predictions about what the next five years holds for fandom?

Well I definitely think the hp fandom is going to come back in full force by the time the "Fantastic Beasts" movie comes around (which I hope is soon- and i'm hopeful it will considering rowling managed to write two full books in two years- so the script part shouldn't take much longer)

I hope that with the comming of the "Fantastic Beasts" movie that there's is a surge of diversity in fandom- which is currently overrun by slash, cross-gen and incest.

I definitely want to see Gen fanworks become more popular for a while.

But definitely Am excited for the potential breath of new life of the hp fandom

Snowflake Challenge--- Day Eleven:
Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing or trope. Try creating a different kind of fanwork. Or check out some types of fanworks that are new to you.

Well I have finally! started writing fanfiction for person of interest & Percy Jackson, which i been a fan for a looooong time and havent done anything, but i'm planning on it

Also, while terrified of the show's sort of gore-y parts, I now like to look for good Abby/Ichabod fanart (from sleepy hollow)

--- does that count?

Snowflake Challenge--- 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.

(Disclaimer: If anyone in particular on my flist pays attention to this, you're under no obligation whatsoever to write/draw something--- only if you want to do it)

Snowflake Challenge--- Day Nine:
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.

This... was tougher than I thought. As i'm really picky at what I read and if it's something that i'm not into (aka pairings or characters) I'm not that into reading/seeing it, unless it has a spectacular review.

but let's see if I can think three.

* ART: SOME KIND OF FOREPLAY  by nearlyconscious.

I am not really into femmeslash. unless it's canon and well done (in canon) I don't really seek it out at all.

But despite the "menh"ness bout femmeslash  I been looking a lot at nearlyconscious art :
(recent interhouse fest entry for example):

and even if it's mostly femmeslash, her style is super captivating and cute and I really like how she draws the characters.

Snowflake Challenge--- Day Eight:

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.

Um... I would like to think I'm creative. I like making things. I think I'm getting good at writing, and I like that, even if it's just a hobby.
nevrafire: (Default)
Snowflake Challenge--- Day Seven:
In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


nevrafire: (Default)
Snowflake Challenge--- Day Six:
In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I really can't mention just one. So i'll try to be brief in describing a few.

The first one is a bit of a cheat, since it's not something specifically but a lot of things under one big label. Mythology. I was a big mythology/folklore  geek growing up and would always dream up of gods and mortal heroes and dryads and leprechauns and fairies and all those supernatural elements in the old word-of-mouth tradition.

The second was the disney movies, specifically the disney princesses movies. I know that a lot of people don't like the old-princesses movies and call them weak and "all they care is finding a man" but I call that idiotic. I always saw them as hard working, stubborn, kind and compassionate women who never gave up on their dreams (man or no man) My favorite one will always be cinderella and I actually wanted to be her when I was little. She never stopped being kind and compassionate, despite all the things thrown her way and all obstacles and cruelty she went through. Plus disney animation was and still is, my inspiration.

Then there was Peter Pan (and no not just the Disney 1953 movie but peter pan in general). Peter Pan planted in my love of flying, not just the dream of physical flight but also of reaching higher and higher for your dream, to never give up, to always try to remain a child at heart.

Percy Jackson what I took out of it the most is the incredible endurance of love. that and the absolute glee at the creative way riordan breathed new exciting life to greek mythology.

Harry Potter  has hold a special place in my heart for the lost time (second only to peter pan) it what made me love reading. It's what introduced me to fandom. It was the comfort during several hard moments growing up- the magic and the message of undying friendship and loyalty and courage. It taught me to never give up and to believe in things.

Fandoms has done so much for me.

Snowflake Challenge--- Day Five:

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.

okay, I really hope that he doesn't get very embarrassed about this, but I have to go for [ profile] lightofdaye as the creator I want to talk about.

I discovered lightofdaye by accident while browsing around active hp comms, but it was the best happy accident I hit in fandom in a while.

to put it poetically, Lightofdaye is a rare, priceless diamond in the never-ending mine of the hp fandom. Because while I was agonizing about the lack of Harry het / general Het fanfiction, that is Not Harry/Ginny or Harry/Hermione, in the drowning sea of slash and cross-gen that kind of taken over, he came with his delightful Harry/Demelza ficlets and his harry/luna.. and even Harry/Susan! (my second otp)

and his stuff is some of THE BEST I read in YEARS.

What, originally, made stick around to watch his work were these three things:

1. He Wrote Harry Het. Really, Really Great flawless-IC! Harry Het. (and Rare! Harry Het. None of that Harry/Ginny or Harry/Hermione but... Harry/Demelza (which became a favorite), Harry/Daphne...

2. He wrote amazing fics/ficlets of My favorite pairings and OTPs--- Harry/Susan, Harry/Luna, Ron/Hermione, Ginny/Neville. All pitch perfect IC!

3. He went and wrote Albus Potter het! sexy, this-is-now-my-headcanon-for-Albus Potter het!

and then I further fell in love with his work because of its authentic uk/english-ness, Flawless characterization that grow organically from Rowling's, A love of Rare pairings (His Ginny/Dean piece! *well, Ginny/Dean/Demelza* how much Ginny/Dean you see in the hp fandom, really? and that well written?) ,Sexy fics  that are sexy without being upsettingly explicit...

and if that wasn't enough he's witty/fun and such a sweet guy.

so Definitely I recommend Everyone go send him praises because he deserves them all.

Here's a Few of my favorite fics from him:

Sleeping On Her Sofa (Harry/Susan)

Title: I Should Be Sleeping Like A Log- Pairing: Harry/Susan

Fic: Hanging By A Thread (Harry/Demelza, Oneshot)

Title: Tigress---Pairing: Albus Potter/Molly Weasley II


Title: Coming And Going---Pairing: Ron/Hermione

(and if you read this daye, I hope this doesn't make you pull a "harry potter runs from the spotlight" thing. I do apologize, If I seem like a crazy fangirl. It's not intentional)

Snowflake Challenge--- Day Four:

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.
It doesn't have to be anything complex - it can be feedback for a fanwork or discussing something you might have in common or even simply admiring their icon. The point is to reach out to someone you normally wouldn't and connect with them, even if it's only for the briefest moment.

Well I left some comments in hp-rarepair-shorts, hpholiday and hp-interhouse fest on pairings I haven't read before (Percy Weasley/Padma Patil,Draco Malfoy/Ginny Weasley), does that count?
nevrafire: (Default)
Snowflake Challenge--- Day Two:
In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them.

mmm.... This is a bit hard. okay.

Definitely, promoting hpship-weeks at Tumblr. It was such an awesome idea for a community/hp-related tumblr. And it brought so much quality fanart for popular or underated pairings (the molly/arthur and bill/fleur stuff was so lovely). I hope they continue it next year!

I always though the Mark Reads Harry Potter section of "Mark Reads" is lovely site to re-visit and smile wide at this man falling in love with Harry Potter.

and even though it's struggling a lot, I do recommend the Harry Potter Het& Gen Fic Art Community (or hphetgen for short).
It does have a few fun challenges and fun trivia-esque stuff like the hp character birthday list and the wand woods list with their properties and bi-weekly rec lists among other things. The current fandom trends dont make it the most popular (since it's het&Gen only, but it allows slash/femmeslash of ocs, and pg-13 as the highest rating) but it's a nice refuge for people who prefer that kind of stuff.

Happy New Year everyone!   Hope Everyone had a great holiday season and a good new years (Hello 2014! I have such high hopes for you)

I saw this meme floating around and decided to participate too, because it looks like fun (even when I'm really behind- so you get 3 days in one, so I can catch up)

Snowflake Challenge---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.
(It had to be my work first, why? oh well...)

Looking back on the work I done since I joined lj, i'm surprised that I have a nice handful of works, and to have works I'm proud off, so i'm picking five instead of three.

1. Her Family's Christmas (ART) for hpholiday-2013

I loved doing this piece, because there's so little fanworks about Hermione's parents, pre or post war, and specially happy one. (although, fyi, its been Comfirmed by Rowling  that they have a happy ending).
I love the way the little details came out (love doing hermione's coat) , and the way I managed to do the body language, and specially, I love drawing Hermione's parents and very happy on how they came up. Definitely hoping to do more with Hermione and her parents.

2. Samhain Twilight for Manghahabi (DRABBLE) for hp-halloween- 2012

I love autumn, it's favorite season, so I really had fun with the flowery imagery here, and I really wanted to paint a picture of warmth and magic and what Autumn represents to me. Also including some of my favorite pairings and headcanon (Neville's patronus) made me happy.

3. "Fragment Memories from Neverland" (DRABBLES + ART) for adopt-a-prompt- 2012

When I saw this Harry Potter/Peter Pan crossover prompt, I Knew I had to do it. I always loved Peter Pan, and I love Harry Potter so I definitely wanted to have it and give it my all. I had so much fun doing it and it made me love both Peter Pan and Harry Potter more than I already did.

I do definitely want to flesh this out into a full-written fanfic and I'm definitely working on it and will get it posted this year.

4. "Μαθαίνοντας από τις υπηρέτριες Ωκεανό ("Learning from the Ocean maids") for reversathon-2012

Oh wow I had so much fun doing this! Specially drawing younger!dumbledore. I had fun doing research for the background (which looks pretty) and the mermaid (which was so hard to draw but so worth it cause it looks pretty so pretty) And the mermish language (which is the taken from the alphabet from Disney's "Atlantis")

5. Before we Remember the grief- we live and love For hp-may-madness- 2012

I loved doing this because of the pairings that I got to write about (two which are otps). I'm also really happy with the imagery and the details I put into each drabble.

HP Fests is a new comunity that someone brought my attention to and I couldn't be happier about it!!!
It's brand new, so I dont know how sucessful it will be, but nothing wrong with trying to get it to become fun and active and popular- afterall, the hp fandom needs a bit more diversity right now.

The prompting for their first fest is up- and it's a Het-dedicated fest.:

 This makes me excited!

so go check it out! (and think about participating in the het-fest- this could add more het fic/art in the fandom! which I miss!):

Wishlist 2013, Prompt Post

What is the Wishlist?

The Wishlist is a multi-fandom Christmas fanfiction fest. It is something that started very small and simple three years ago. The premise was simply to write twenty-four ficlets in response to twenty-four prompts, posted between 1 Dec and 24 Dec. Fandom gifts, if you will. Since then it's grown and changed a bit.

The community and the rules in detail can be found here.

I have signed up to be a writer & artist and if you want to give me a prompt, please leave a comment on this entry.


- I accept the first 6 prompts I am given, regardless of who you are or if I know you.

- You give me characters/pairing, a fandom and a prompt. If you want art, please give me a story, scene or fandom you would like me to create art for. Please provide a link.

- If I don't know the fandom you're requesting, your prompt doesn't count. The fandoms I write/draw in are:

a- Harry Potter
b- Person of Interest
c- Percy Jackson
d- Pushing Daisies
f- Doctor Who (Series 5-7 though. So 11 era).

- If I find your prompt in any way offensive, I will disregard it, too. Fair warning.

- Your prompts should somewhat match what I usually write/draw. It can be a quote, an idea, a specific situation, but the more you give me, the more I have to work with. Throwing Character X/Character Y, whatever at me is going to get you whatever.

P r e f e r e n c e s .
what I Will vs. what I Won't Write/Draw
~~~~ * ~~~~
Romance, General, Adventure, Mystery, Friendship!Fic, Character!study Fic, Happy Endings, Adventure, Ensemble!Fic.

(also willing to do crossovers- but depends on complexity of the prompt premise)

Slash/Femmeslash of canon characters (can do so with OCS, OC/OC though), incest/cross-gen, infidelity, rape, darkfic, unhappy endings, graphic violence/sexual/ kink material (so no R/NC-17), ooc-ness, broken relationships (divorces, no longer friends,etc), Character bashing/villification (ex. seemingly good mentor/friend was evil all along), homophobic/racist/sexist themes, religious bashing, unrequired love.

~~~ * ~~~~
- If you don't have an lj account, leave an anonymous comment, but make sure to sign it with a name (possibly your TtH name, if you're coming from that end.)

- I answer the prompts in the order I like best and post them here and/or in the [ profile] wishlist_fic community, one a day, starting 1 Dec 2013.

Again, I need fandom, characters or pairings, prompt, and your name, or, for an art prompt fandom, a scene or story, and your name.

~~~ * ~~~
Prompts List:
1. lash_larue.
Art. Harry Potter - postwar, in the rubble of Hogwarts. Luna. Harry-  "I always believed in you, Harry."

2. moriann. Pushing Daisies. Character: Emerson & ensemble. Prompt: Emerson is the one who can revive people with a touch.

3. xgirl2222- Percy Jackson/POI (After the 2nd Movie). Characters: Percy/Annabeth, John, Finch.-- Percy and Annabeth's numbers come up in the machine. At first Finch and John can't figure out why their both in danger. Then their both kidnapped, and it seems it's because Percy biological father is a wealthy and mysterious figure as is Annabeth's mother. That's when things take a turn for the weird.

4. kate34books- PoI/Castle- Joss Carter, Zoe Morgan, Kate Beckett, Harold Finch, Reese, Rick Castle.
Prompt: Joss Carter joins forces with Kate Beckett to try to growing threat.
5. somnium_astrum. Pushing Daisies/Doctor Who- Characters: PD ensemble
Prompt: Turns out those pocket watches are even more special than they imagined.
 the three of them were time lords who escaped to earth for whatever reason,

Hi everyone!
I recently found this really,really cool multi-fandom comunity that does a once a year "christmas-gift giving" type fest, and It looks fantastic!

[ profile] wishlist_fic

I been browsing their 2012 fest stuff and they have A Lot of great fandoms to play with:
Harry Potter (of course), Buffy, Avengers, Doctor Who, LoTR, OuAT, inception, sailor moon,Percy Jackson,etc

the best part is? it has crossover- so you could write Hp/Doctor Who, HP/OuAT, HP/Avengers,etc


A more descriptive description of the comm is this one:
The premise is very simple. Writers & Artist, sign up to fill a certain number of prompts which they then post all through December until Christmas. Ideally, that'd be 24 ficlets for 24 days. Half and quarter Wishlists are also accepted (ie, 12 or 6 prompts).

The SIGN UP Post is this one :

(You do need to apply for membership- but that's you can apply and then you'll be a member AFTER sign ups close- and really, this seems like such a great comm so why not become a member?):

So it seems Fun and flexible and it Would Be AMAZING if more people sign up for it so there's more great Fic.

so people who watch me, consider this my attempt to tempt you to participate. (I Am)

Title: Seven Years- (Ron/Hermione-FANVIDEO)
Artist: Julia Coolia.
Rating: PG
Why I loved it: Ron/Hermione are one of my 3 OTP and I though this was a lovely tribute to them. A fanvideo&fan-written Song it tells of Hermione's developing feeling for Ron throughout the seven years (and beyond). The song was beautiful and I admit I teared up a bit at my beautiful OTP. Definitely watch this!
nevrafire: (Default)

Title:HPPS The Flying Motorbike:
Artist: SaBenerica
Rating: PG (implied neglect?)
Why I loved it: The amount of small details on this piece is a treat to look at, and the artist really breathed life into this, giving us a detailed glimpse of what Harry´s experience pre-Hogwarts was like. At the same time, really looking at the details breaks your heart because you can see just how lonely harry is (those drawings of a "happy family" *SNIFF*)

Title:Harry Potter Bookmarks:
Rating: G
Why I loved it: These are just so cool and creative, and despite their simplicity I´m in awe puzzlement about how the artist did them.

Title:Escape from Gringotts:
Rating: PG
Why I loved it: This is Such a EPIC piece. The colors areso rich and vibrant, making the entire piece alive and seemingly jump at you. (look at that red hot fire!)

1. Title: The Marauders: (COSPLAY)
Rating: G
Why I loved it: It Really hard to find Good guy cosplayers for Harry Potter. This is a gem not only because they're All guys but Also they manage to look a Lot like the actual Marauders *although their Sirius seems more movie!Sirius/Gary Oldman than book!Canon but- still works* and PETER! they picked a peter that's plumpy and Round Faced. (As it Should be)

2. Title: Avatared Marauders:
Artist: Viria
Rating: G?
Why I loved it: Crossovers! I love crossovers! (specially well done ones). I think which-bender is which of the Marauders is Well done and accurate. (Sirius Is Definitely A firebender).

3. Title: Special Friends (ART CRAFT):
Artist: current anonymous due to Fest.
Rating: G.
Why I loved it: knitted Padfoot & Crookshanks going on an adventure together. This is THE Cutest piece of FanArt I seen in a long time. (also really creative- the artist made them herself! which must have been So hard). The combination of the knitted animals combined with the posed photographs makes this like a little life-like comic. Also it gave me the overwhelming desire to have a stuffed Padfoot. Major thumbs up to this!
