Day 13: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

SO EASY. I could do a zillion of these, but I will stick with 3, all Supernatural.

Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Castiel/Sam Winchester
Characters: Sam Winchester, Castiel
Additional Tags: Angel True Forms, Trueform Sex
Summary: Sam and Cas try trueform sex. It's different.

My notes: [archiveofourown.org profile] de_nugis is the best at truly thinking of alien!Cas, out-of-the-box!Cas, and Sam is always beautifully drawn, too. This look at non-human sex, at Castiel's angelic body and Sam's wonderful dawning understanding and determination is amazing and gorgeous.

Summary: Outsiders would tell you, sometimes tell her at toll booths or rest stops, that she is fat, and hairy, and old. Some people call her things for that. She has many names.

My notes: This is just... gorgeous. Seriously, the way the tale is wound all the way to the end, and then the penny drops that this really is Supernatural, and it's so heartwrenching, those few sentences about the Winchesters from this particular outside POV. Wow. Beautiful.

Summary: Sam is okay with Dean and Cas' relationship. Really, he is. He just kind of wishes Cas would stop murmuring in Dean's ear like that.

My notes: Oh god, the Sam angst is going to make me diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie. The Enochian just really, really makes this. ETA: There is a sequel that is even MORE lovely and angsty and breaks my heart in two. GORGEOUS.

I got SO MUCH cool stuff, you guys, SO MUCH!!!

Everything from gluten-free recipes to lots of cute and fun graphics for season's greetings!

[personal profile] monanotlisa gave me hedgie wallpaper, omg I LOVE, [personal profile] leesa_perrie made a gorgeous and perfect snowed in picspam, and [personal profile] lightbird gave me a lovely Christmas tradition story and set of beautiful snowy pics.

As if that wasn't enough to make me smile to the ends of the earth, a few lovely people made fanworks for me, and they are all so good!

[personal profile] valarltd gave me a lovely 3-work Leverage OT3 rec set (the fic is amaaaaaazing Parker.

[personal profile] lilly_c made me Big Hero 6 icons. (;salfkjsa;dlfkjas;ldkfjs;ldfkj BAYMAX. BAYMAX AND HIRO. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D I AM GRINNING SO BIG HERE!)

[personal profile] tarlanx made a gorgeous Cas & Dean wallpaper. (Ugh, Cassssssssssssssssss and Dean unconscious, just... ugh, so perfect.)

[personal profile] mific expanded upon her Leverage OT3 tentacle art to add a little spicier version. (Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh OT3 + tentacles OMG OMG OMG!!! *claws eyes out*)

[personal profile] omens arted me Jody and Donna having movie night. (;ssdkfljads;lkfjas;ldfkjas;dlkfjs;dlfkj fffffuck, Donna and Jody, I don't think you understand - Wayward Daughters is the only SPN shirt I will wear in public with ABSOLUTELY NO SHAME.)

[personal profile] curiouscorvid's fic Silver Balls is a hysterical outside POV on Destiel decorating the tree naked (off a flailosaurus prompt). SO. ADORABLE. So cute, so much awesome Sam in a Destiel fic. LOooooOOOoooooVE.

[personal profile] parcequelle made a Leverage/Buffy fusion, where Parker's the slayer, Sophie's the watcher, and Eliot and Hardison are the scoobies. The One Girl Job is both amazing in terms of how well the crossover works and also in how sweetly heartwrenching it is in such a short, seemingly silly premise.

I will NEVER not ask for Nightside stuff in [community profile] fandom_stocking because a couple year's back, I got the amazing Teddy Bear's Graveyard about Jessica Sorrow from [archiveofourown.org profile] anonymous_sibyl, and this year, I got a ficlet about John/Suzie/Eddie from [personal profile] katarik where they are SO PERFECTLY DRAWN. HOW DO PEOPLE DO THIS?! I have never received a fanwork in the Nightside fandom that hasn't been amazingly done. And some year, someone is going to make me Dead Boy art, and I will die.

[personal profile] sharpest_asp wrote me the most delightful Jenkins backstory ficlet in the Librarians fandom, and I absolutely looooooove that mostly it is not actually giving us any backstory. It's such delightful characterization, and THE LIBRARIANS!!!! :D :D :D :D

And last, but oooooohhhhhh so not least, [personal profile] citrusjava made me THE MOST PERFECT Wincestiel/Project Runway fusion/crossover/thingee!!! I Know Who You Did Last Summer has Cas making SOCKS. SOCKS. I DON'T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND. *cries* And then Sam losing it and Cas and Dean going after him and just... no. THIS IS PERFECT. *clutches it to chest*

I am so so so so grateful for this fest every year, you guys. I just love making stuff for people (list under the cut, because this post isn't about that), and then I get all this amazing stuff in return, and just seeing the outpouring of fannish joy makes me tear up. Every. Year. *happy siiiiiiiigh*

Stuff I made this year, two podfics and six fics in SGA, Leverage, a Buffy/Heroes crossover, and, of course, Supernatural. )
kate: Aang :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD (AtLA: Aang grinning)
Day 4: In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something.

I'm counting the two podfics and six fics I created for [community profile] fandom_stocking here. Reveals aren't until Friday evening, if you're feeling ambitions and want to gift a little something. :D

Day 5: Leave feedback for a fanwork. Or multiple fanworks. It can be as simple as I liked this to a detailed list of all the things you loved about the fanwork. The key is to leave some sort of feedback.

I've been leaving it all over, but here are two pieces that deserve more love, if anyone else is so inclined, both Supernatural: Return by [archiveofourown.org profile] citrusjava, and For the Time Being by [archiveofourown.org profile] De_Nugis

Day 6: In your own space, create your own challenge. What’s something you want to see more people doing in fandom? Is there something you’ve tried that you think other people would enjoy if they gave it a go? Dare your friends to try it out, and have fun with it.

[community profile] ante_up_losers 2016 Fanwork Exchange is up and running! Sign up now! :D :D :D

Day 7: In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I was going to try and do something for Supernatural, and there are a million things I love, but it'd be way to hard to try and do that (and too time consuming), so instead, I'm going to show you my favorite scene from The Losers: embed behind the cut of Chris Evans singing Journey )

Not sure if my favorite part is that he DOES THE ACTUAL DYNAMICS in the line "it goes on and on and on and on," or the little dance move he does in the elevator before the doors close. Or... well, it's probably the Cougar bit at the end. Because Cooooooougar. :D

Day 8: Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.

Welcome, [personal profile] citrusjava! *smirks at you*

Day 9: In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

1. Write 250,000 words this year
2. Post at least 100,000 words this year
3. Post one novella length story at least
kate: Cas looking mighty fine (SPN: Cas hoooooooooooooot)
Me rambling about Team Free Will and Wincestiel and some awesome recs. )

AND! I'm super late on this post, partially because life happened, but also partially because I posted a Wincestiel big bang a while back, thinking there wasn't going to be any art. Found out [tumblr.com profile] wifihunters was having a tough time IRL but was still working on the art and now it's live and holy crap IT IS AMAZING.

The story behind this story is that I signed up for a Wincestiel big bang last year, and the epic story I'd been working on (I had 25k words done going in – I really thought I could finish it!). But then I've realized it's roughly a 100k word story and I wasn't going to finish in time for the deadline. But it was a 10k minimum and I can pull that out in a day if I need to, so I came up with a second story and started to write. What if Cas asked the Winchesters out on a date – both of them? But then I couldn't finish that one either (though they extended the deadline by a month – I could've probably made it if they'd said something when I sent my defaulting email). And so when this Team Free Will Big Bang came up, I decided to finish that romcom idea because I loved it so much. I'm still working on the other epic story, and hoping to finish that one next year. I've got another one in the works, too, an alt!season 9 that I think will be awesome. But anyway – I finished this one, and there is freaking GORGEOUS art to go with it. :D :D :D :D
