Day 1: In your own space, talk about why you are doing the Fandom Snowflake Challenge? What drew you to it as a participant? What do you hope to accomplish by doing these challenges?

Hmmmm…. *goes back to 2012*

So I think I was just looking for a way to produce some more content on DW, and enthuse about my love for fandom. I love fandom – and not just the fandom of the show I'm currently in, but the WHOLE of fandom. There are so many really awesome people out there willing to help each other out and make things for each other and argue salient (or completely meaningless) details of things they love… I love all the creative energy that exists in fandom, and I love [community profile] snowflake_challenge's attitude, particularly when it tries to subvert imposter syndrome, and makes people stand up and be proud of what they've made. I love seeing young or new fans realize that fandom isn't something they should be ashamed of but something they should be PROUD of – that fandom has given them a way to make things or forge relationships that wouldn't have been possible anywhere else.

Now, 2012 was back at my old job, so I had more time, energy, and enthusiasm than I do now. I still love fandom, by I have to be very careful with where I commit my energy because I can wear myself out, and I have a lot of commitments I need to keep in the air. I will try to finish the whole challenge this year, though.
