I cheated. I wrote four letters. I couldn't help myself.
To Aragorn, to Bruce Banner, to Eowyn, and to Gilraen )

It seems to be the day for these...'tis a sloooow work-day so I don't feel bad using up my lunch break doing this :). I can't hope to do all the ones I missed so I'm just gonna skip to Day 6 and go from there. Cool? Cool.

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.


Behind the cut! )
Day 7

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.


Kinda cheating, because I created this a few days ago, BUT as it's not going to be posted anytime soon (it's part of a much longer work that I'm still in outlining stages of) I figure why not post it here? Also you'll get thrilling insight into my drafting process, i.e. what I do when i bookmark something I don't feel like researching at that particular moment :P
In which Gilraen comes to watch Estel's archery lessons )
Day 8

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.


Baah I feel weird about this one, but eh, everyone else is doing it so why not :3.

Skipping Day 9 because most "fics I thought I wouldn't like but then did" were Avenger orgy fics (plus the infamous Les Mis sex-pollen fic) and I am absolutely not tracking down those links on my work computer :P.

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.


Oooh, this is fun! Okay...

1. A nice layout for my Tumblr page...I have no technological ability whatsoever so I've got one of the stock layouts, but it'd be cool to have something a little fancier :).
2. Backstory fic starring young Ivorwen and young Dirhael :D
3. A nice Laura Roslin icon :)

 Don't know how many of these I'm going to have a chance to do, but taking advantage of my day off to at least do the first day! 

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.

Or, What Suzanne Did With Herself Those Two Months She Was Unemployed. This was my magnum opus of summer 2012, and remains the longest story I've ever completed. In some ways it's extremely self-indulgent (a crossover fic featuring two badass ladies sparring plus a whopping dollop of Bruce Banner angst aaaw yeah), and in other ways it was an active attempt on my part to work on aspects of writing that, at the time, were difficult for me (heavy dialogue, action scenes, sustaining a full plot arc over something that turned out to be novella-length). There are things about it that now make me wince (pretty much all the dialogue I wrote for Tony, and a lot of Lin's internal monologuing), but it's solid, and I remain proud of the structure even if some of the minor details are lacking. Also: LIN BEIFONG JOINS THE AVENGERS remains one of the best ideas I've ever had, no matter how the execution played out :P. 

Put All Your Words Away (Incredible Hulk/Avengers AU)

Brooke Banner's childhood, from the perspective of her aunt.

This is a fic that is so AU I could very easily change just a few tiny details and make it my own original fiction. Which I still might do, someday. I'd written a lot of genderswapped Avengers fic before this, and my pre-occupation with a female Bruce Banner led me to think way too much about her backstory, which then led to the full development of Banner's aunt, Jen Robertson, and everything sort of spiraled from there. Not a lot of people read it, I'm guessing because it was so AU, but it's really important to me both in terms of the development of these characters and in terms of proving to myself that I could write about people who didn't have superpowers :P. Also I'm just really in love with both of these characters. Especially Jen.

A Mother's Gift (Lord of the Rings)

Ivorwen and Gilraen contemplate the nature of foresight.

I got back into LOTR fandom at the end of this summer after a loooong hiatus, almost by chance. I actually don't remember now which came first--seeing Fellowship in theaters again (thank you, MOMA), or if I'd already started working on some fic as a way to procrastinate editing my theater history article. Regardless, the two sort of conflated, and I spent all of August trying to resurrect an Aragorn-centric WIP that I'd begun and then abandoned well over two years ago. It's still not finished and now may never be (unless I can find the inspiration/energy to gut it from the inside out), but I still wanted to be writing Dúnedain stories, and September's Teitho prompt lit the perfect spark. The women of the Dúnedain have captivated me from the beginning, and Ivorwen and Gilraen have long fulfilled that maddening position of "favorite characters and there is so little fic about them." So I went and wrote some myself! This was a hard labor of love and no small amount of "l;aksjdfkljsadf I'm basically a newbie all over again help," but it's one I think I'm going to be proud of for a long time to come.
