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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. 

Placeholder post. I'm working on a project that will satisfy this challenge, but said project won't go live until February.

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.
 
If you've already left feedback in the course of a previous challenge, it totally counts. But you're free to leave more feedback.
 
Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!" If you feel so inclined, leave a link to the fanwork you left feedback for so others can check it out.
A recent fic that I enjoyed and left feedback for was :
The Only Thing Money Can't Buy by Coragyps (Harold Finch is a shy, sexually repressed shut-in. John is the prostitute he hires to take care of that middle part.)

It is a very well written POI AU spin on how Finch and Reese teamed up. Explicit.

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

 AO3. Person of Interest, Reese/Finch. It's a shiptastic, romantic vid featuring ALL the hearteyes. (Well, not all of them, but as many as I could pack into 3 minutes.)

Float AO3 Harold/Nathan. The wishlist  fic that distracted me from the challenge last year. I like angsty Harold/Nathan. I tend to write a lot of it. I like this fic because I had a lot of fun writing it, I got to do Photoshop stuffs, and I think the recipient really enjoyed the fic. Win-win all around.

A Series of Complete Understandings AO3. Harold Finch, Lionel Fusco. This was my under-appreciated baby from last year. Gen fic, Harold and Lionel, I understand why it got passed over. Still, I really enjoyed writing this and I still enjoy re-reading it.  I love the team dynamics in the story and playing up two characters who don't usually get a lot of screen time together.

Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

1. I would love a knowledgeable and patient person to explain to me how fic exchanges like Yuletide and
[community profile] chocolateboxcomm work. So far, I've taken part in very easy to understand type exchanges: I make a post, I list my likes/dislikes, a mod matches me with someone and I write. Tagsets, nominations....I don't know, I still don't understand how these latger exchanges work or how to participate in them.

2. Fan art for fic is always nice.

3. Podfic of fic would also be wonderful.

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? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I regret not finishing the challenge last year but I had a good reason. One of the earlier challenges last year was to post a fannish wish list. I found a inspiring project on someone else's list and work on that project took over my January 15. :) I ended up with a couple of fics that I really enjoyed out of that!

This year I'm hoping to complete the challenge and take in all the opportunities for inspiration,.

A few weeks back I made a note to actually sit down and do a track by track write up on the Hamilton cast recording. It would probably make more sense to do this series in order...and on a schedule even, but that’s not going to happen.

Today’s jam (actually, the earworm for the past few days is “One Last Time.”

 Hmmm... Apparently I'm just rusty enough on DW/LJ/DJ journal skills that I can't even figure out a cut tag anymore. :/

 I found this whilst cleaning out some old writing folders. I have just the barest memory of writing this for an editing class ages ago. Pretty sure I bullshitted my way through the paper, it's not terribly academic. Posting it for that one, or two other people on the internet who wants to read more about sound design in the sound design in War of the Worlds and Cat On a Hot Tin Roof.

Goodness knows I've Google weirder.

 At birth your fate is written

 

First one, ruddy and plump, his shrill cry piercing the air of the birthing room. Then the other, equally pink and just as loud. The midwife cut the second umbilical cord before swaddling the babe and laying him next to his brother in the rough hewn bassinet. The midwife turned her attention back to the young woman, her legs still splayed wide. Her dark hair plastered to her pale face.

“Sont-ils en bonne santé? ,” she husked weakly.

“Oui, mon petit,” the old midwife murmured as she squeezed the water from a cloth and began cleaning the exhausted girl. “Ainsi,” the midwife continued, her voice firm as she nudged the girl down to rest against the bed, “maintenant tu devrais te reposer .”
 

Inside the old cradle the babies struggled against the rough and foreign bundling. Tiny hands worked free from their blankets, prodding along until each found the familiar grip of the others hand. As inseparable as they had been in the womb, the boys held tight.

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I'm glued on tight to this carousel

Come, come one, come all,
you must be this tall
to ride this ride at the carnival

Oh, come, take my hand
and run though playland
so high, too high at the carnival

And it's all fun and games,
'til somebody falls in love,
but you've already bought a ticket,
and there's no turning back now

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I'm glued on tight to this carousel

This horse is too slow,
we're always this close,
almost, almost, we're a freakshow

Right, right when I'm near,
it's like you disappeared,
where'd you go? is that Houdini or a freakshow?

And it's all fun and games,
'til somebody falls in love,
but you've already bought a ticket,
and there's no turning back now

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I'm glued on tight to this carousel

Why did you steal my cotton candy heart?
you threw it in this damn coin slot,
and now I'm stuck, I'm stuck,
riding, riding, riding

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I'm glued on tight to this carousel

In your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. How did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I started out in pro wrestling fandom in 1997 on my WebTV unit. Initially I was all about getting the inside scoops, the backstage news, all that fun stuff. Then I found a messageboard populated by other ladies, "Loco's Stuff". Lady fandom is much different to guy fandom and I loved it. From there I found fanfic, slash, things traditionally associated with fandom.
In my early days I was very much an organizer of things witha a keen interest in panfandom identity. Unfortunately, back then Wrestling fic was very much shunned as RPF. For better or worse, this meant most of my formative years were spent as an outsider looking in. 'Cept in my own fandom where all we had was each other.
So I started posting fic to message boards (that's how we rolled back then). I would go on to ran a massive fic archive, dabbling a bit in automated submission programming. Then I joined the RP fad and within 2 years burned out of fic based fandom.
After that I went back to my webdesign roots and built a massive wrestling fansite. News, screencaps, vids, photos, fan stories, forum - just goofy stuff and I had a blast! Unfortunately, an enterprise like that means eventually I had to mediate fan squabbles. Babysit. I had no interest in that at all. I create stuff, I am not a counselor. So, rather than deal with all that nonsense, I shut the site down and went back to guy fandom. I honed my troll skills in guy fandom and had a blast just being a fan running wild.
 
About two years ago I discovered "Lost" was available for Netflix streaming. Cool, because I didn't watch it when it aired live (a reoccuring pattern for me regarding most network television). Whatever, it's okay, glad I could binge watch it because I don't think I would have been a fan of the week to week format. Then, over a couple of episodes I met Henry Gale, er, Ben Linus, er....this show just got a lot more interesting!

Belatedly, I followed Michael Emerson to POI. I 'm not exactly sure when I started watching, fall of 2013ish. I'd DVR'd some episodes and distinctly remember "God Mode" being the first one I watched, probably in re-run, so I started at the beginning of those DVR episodes and by the end of that first night went ahead and ordered S1 and S2 DVDs from Amazon. I was hooked.
I was also back into lady fandom.
Now I primarily write and dabble. I just enjoy creating things and learning how to create different things.

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

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.

Okay, that was easy - I talked to three stranger dangers this morning, random tumblr fan mail.

 In your own space, talk about your creative process - from what inspires you to what motivates you to how you manage to break through blocks. Does your process change depending on the type of creating you're doing? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
 
Wow, the challenge gets harder each day. I'll focus on fannish creation, but I have a lot of overlap with creation for money so yeah.
 
Fic writing is what I do most often, fan and pro. For the most part I start with an idea. The ideas come from everywhere: people on the street, songs, interesting magazine articles, other people's writing, songs, visual media, the world is full of ideas.
 
From there I like to just live with the idea for a while. Workshop bits of the idea (act the bits out). Pretty much all of the ideas go through some dream writing: firming up what I have so far of the idea, planting it in my mind before sleep, then letting the dreamworld sort it out. In the morning I've fleshed out more, or added to it thanks to dreams.
 
By this point I have 2-3 solid scenes: dialoge and action. That's when I open Open Writer and Notepad.
OW is for the actual fic, Notepad is for my notes and a resting place for bits that get cut from the word doc. I can knock out 2500 words per day on a good day. On a bad day, sometimes 5.
 
I tend to write start to finish which means if I get stuck, I'm stuck. In fanfic I'm usually exploring, writing start to finish and allowing myself to be surprised along the way. Profic is a bit different because I usually know the end of the story so I'm comfortable working backward if I get stuck on the front end.
 
Something new I've added this year is using audio in my editing process. I email myself the story and let my phone read it back. Great for catching typos, weird phrasings, repeated words and clunky language.
 
Then, sometimes all of that just goes out the window. I'm working on a story now where I had the idea and a few set pieces but no connectors at all. Because I have more ideas that follow after this story, I had to write it. Ugh, the early bits of it are just ugly, tortured. Now I'm moving into the bits that came through the dream/workshoping and am happy here.
 
Scriptwriting is tortuous for me because I write for a very formulaic medium. I have to come up with 3-4 fresh TV scripts a week and the challenge is not falling into a pattern because I write about 80% of the content for the channel and can't have it all sounding the same. Hates scripting but that's what pays the rent.
 
Podfic - Placeholder. This is a crazy stupid fun process that requires more time than I have right now.
 
Video editing  - Placeholder.

1. I would like a collaborative writer for a Person of Interest fic project. Specifically, I'd be interested in working with some one, or a (group of someones) to write the kickass Finch and Root fic that I need and would never be able to write on my own. 
 
2. I'd also like icons, 100x100 for DW and LJ: Person of Interest, BBC Sherlock, Homicide: LOtS, TWD, GoT, Mad Men, Top Chef, Project Runway, Rome.
 
3. Finally, I would love Harold Finch charcater analysis meta. Not just episode specific thoughts or shippy stuff, more about what makes him tick. I'm sure it's out there somewhere, there's just so much other stuff to sift through.
