The Fandom Snowflake Challenge
Day 7: 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. Drop a link to your wish-list in this post. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

It's really tough for me to ask for things. Like, it embarrasses me and it's one of the reasons I never do any of those spiffy writing memes (I'm also terribly certain that no one gives a crap about what I write and is less than interested in doing anything with it - which is why I was so deeply pleased and thrilled with those requests to link works the other day). But I'm doing this challenge, and so, here are things I am embarrassed to admit I would really, really like.

1. I would absolutely love transformative works of my transformative works (including art, podfic, fanmixes, translations, craftworks, remixing, continuing, or changing the story itself, anything) for any of my stories, any of them, seriously. But the one thing I want more than anything in the world, is art for Kinky Boots: the image of John, naked except for thigh high leather boots. That is the only time I've written a story from a single image I saw in my head, and to have that image be out in the world would be amazing.

ETA: OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG LOOK WHAT [personal profile] danceswithgary made me!!!!! <333333

2. I would like some very specific Criminal Minds recs. This fandom is tough for me, because so far what I've read just doesn't work for me. For one, I love the team as a team, and I don't ship them. I like them as friends and family, and I love all their partners (Lila or Austin for Reid, Sarah for Gideon, Kevin for Garcia, Will for JJ, Haley for Hotch), so I'm not interested in 'ship fic for this fandom (which is probably why I haven't really been in this fandom so much). Now, that said, I don't mind 'ship fic, and I have read lots of it (Garcia/Morgan, Morgan/Reid, Prentiss/Reid, JJ/Reid, Garcia/Morgan/Reid, okay, I really like Reid, so what?!), but my problem with it is not with it being 'ship fic but with the fact that it doesn't feel like the show, or the characters feel OOC to me. On the other hand, I'm not really interested in case fic for this fandom; the show itself scratches that itch just fine. What I am looking for is this: character-based fic that specializes in backstory or fills in bits and pieces of their characterizations that we see in canon. I love CM because it really only hints at their characterization (for the most part). I would have thought that the fandom would have run with those savory little bits of information, but either I'm looking in the wrong places or it just doesn't exist. Help a girl out here? I will read 'ship fic, if it specializes in characterization or backstory, and the characters I love best are Reid, Garcia, Morgan, Prentiss, JJ, Gideon, and Hotch (pretty much in that order). Elle and Rossi, no thanks. They're just not my cup of tea (I don't mind if they're in the mix, they're part of the team, obviously, but I'd rather they not be the focus of the fic). I know those are really specific requirements, so anything you can give me would be awesome.

ETA: Five Times that Emily Prentiss Celebrated her Birthday (and one time she didn't) by [personal profile] twtd. \o/ BRILLIANT. GO READ NOW, KTHX.

Is This Your Card by [archiveofourown.org profile] lalaietha, Reid/Austin (the bartender from 52 pickup!)

2a. Okay, I lied. There is ONE 'ship fic I am desperately seeking. I want the fic where Reid and Hotch get it on in the car after interviewing Chester Hardwick in Damaged. Hotch taking off his jacket and being all "OH YEAH? I'M GONNA MESS YOU UP BIG MAN" and then Reid saving the day with a 13-minute ramble? Something about Hotch taking off his tie set me off, and I want the porn, man, with a simple "that was so hot" sort of explanation. I don't even care if its plausible, because to me it's plausible based solely on Hotch ripping his tie off and Reid stepping in to save his ass. <333 Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeid.

3. Icons! :D :D :D I love icons, and I suck at them so bad. :( I would love icons for the following fandoms/characters or interests: Losers/Cougar, Cougar, Cougar, Jensen, Pooch, Aisha, Roque; CM/Reid, Morgan, Garcia, Prentiss; Fringe/Olivia, Astrid, Walter, Broyles; How to Train Your Dragon/Toothless (or Toothless and Hiccup), Astrid, Ruffnut and Tuffnut; Leverage/Eliot, Parker, Hardison; ballet; classical music; Kate Winslet; Vin Diesel; Wylie Dufresne; fooooooooooood.

ETA: OMG SO MANY AWESOME ICONS! Check the comments for Losers, Leverage, Fringe, and Criminal Minds! :D :D :D

I'm not very good at making icons but I am going to attempt to make you some Losers icons now...

Okay, this is only like the tenth time I tried making icons, so not sure how good they are, but I hope you like :)

And thank you, bb! I just may do that with the next one.

ETA: If you don't like the coloring, let me know, and I will change it.

You're welcome. I <3 him, too! I saw your comment on your icon page saying "from Pitch Black?" for this icon. Yep. That's where it's from.

I'll self rec an Emily Prentiss fic I wrote. It's been Jossed a bit and could be read as shippy but only if you want to read it that way, otherwise it's queer gen backstory. Five Times Emily Prentiss Celebrated Her Birthday (and one time she didn't)

Trying to find a good Go Petunias image, but this should hold you over...

Okay, so for the Petunias one I had to do a screencap of an animated gif, so not the best image, but he's still adorable!

You have read the "Is This Your Card?" series by recessional, right? It's Spencer/Austin and is fabulous, and is on AO3.

I like them as friends and family, and I love all their partners

THIS. And I'm glad someone else recced Is This Your Card, because it was, um, all I've got, but it is also the best.

Happy to hear it. Oh, just wondering, did you want them to be private? I don't mind either way :)
