Day 2: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

For A Little Green Bag by [ profile] vintageroses
Supernatural/Freaks and Geeks fusion, 4189 words
Dean/Castiel, Sam, Gabriel, Garth, Chuck
Teen and up, warnings for underage
Freaks and Geeks AU, based on the episode "Chokin' and Tokin'". Dean smokes marijuana for the first time and needs Castiel's help to babysit Sam. Castiel is, of course, not-so-happy to clean up after Dean, especially back at the scene of the crime that may explain why Dean stopped inviting Castiel over and started hanging out with his cousin Gabriel and his burn-out friends.

It sounds bizarre, Supernatural and Freaks and Geeks, but think about it for a second and realize that it isn't. My favorite kind of high school AU, with believable teenagers and drug use and MAKE OUTS, yay

Answer in the Form of a Question by [ profile] blackstar777
Suits, 20569 words
Harvey/Mike, Mike/Rachel, Donna, Kyle
Everything seems to be back on an even keel after the drama at Pearson Hardman and the emotional tsunami that ripped through Mike’s life: Gram, Tess, Rachel.

So of course that’s when he and Harvey end up having phone sex.

I really go back and forth on Suits anymore, because for all the excellent things about it there are a bunch of things that make me cringe (not so much because it's bad, but because they're tropes that rub me the wrong way). But this is like, my wonderful, wonderful head canon. HARVEY. Jesus.

I Move in Circles Round You by [ profile] Silver_Queen
Instant Star, 7934 words
Teen and Up
"Maybe it's time to let go of the things we wanted when I was sixteen."

This was a ridiculous Degrassi-esque Canadian teen drama about a girl who won the Canadian equivalent of American Idol and had a super dramatic life including a dramatic on again/off again with her older ex-boybander producer Tommy and a dramatic career and a dramatic family life and it was all very dramatic.

The lead, Jude Quincy, was played by Alexz Johnson, whom I still adore and y'all should check out her music by the way it's really great

Anyway, the series ended with a temporary break up between Jude and Tommy while Jude moved to London to be an strong independent woman, and this is the fic that rounds it all out and brings them back together without demeaning what Jude was trying to do (or what Tommy was, either) and also along the way kind of makes you like both characters a hell of a lot more than the show did.

all you have to do is call my name (and i'll be there) by [ profile] dollsome
New Girl, 1106 words
Schmidt/Cece, Jess
Gen Audiences
In which Schmidt and Cece bond over Stars Hollow, and the itty bitty kimono strikes back.

New Girl fic with great voices and also is super cute! I don't usually crave fic for this show since the canon is so satisfying, but this hits all the right spots.

In a concerted effort to start actually using my journal again instead of randomly popping in to ask for things and assault you with capslock, let's try this [community profile] snowflake_challenge thing everyone's doing, yay! i'm so bad at this watch me give up on day six ugh

Day 1: 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.

I wrote a truly insane amount of gift fics this holiday season, because I am a ridiculous person. So I'm going to ignore that number right there and just a reveal post, here we go.

For [ profile] tw_fallharvest, I wrote:

come on stranger
Teen Wolf/Stargate SG-1 fusion, Derek/Stiles
Teen and Up, 16869 words
warnings for depictions of violence, off-screen minor character death
Evil robots, basically. Sometimes Stiles regrets signing that nondisclosure agreement.

In the same series, I wrote an epilogue, Friends in High Places (2358 words) for [personal profile] jerakeen, because she's wonderful.

I can't even remember what I was thinking during that one. It all blurs together in my head, like an acid trip. An acid trip of space werewolves.

For [ profile] tw_holidays, I wrote this one for [personal profile] lorax:

Tall Tales
Teen Wolf/Star Wars (original trilogy) fusion, Derek/Stiles, Laura
Teen and Up, 6065 words
"We've got a whole month of time, your highness. And there's only so many places you can go on a starship."


No but seriously, this one was a labor of love and caffeine, I don't think I slept for the entire three days leading up to the deadline, and I still didn't manage to get rid of all the navel-gazing in it. I would like to continue it, but I would much rather let someone else do it. Hint.

Now for Yuletide! I did my main assignment and then a treat, because I'm great.

Reunion Song for [personal profile] musesfool
Push (2009), Nick/Cassie, Elizabeth/OFC
Teen and Up, 4752 words
Cassie’s been with her mother for two weeks when she has the first vision of him.

I literally started this Christmas Eve morning and made my brother read it as I posted it forty minutes before the main collection closed, to which he responded, "Meagan, let go of my arm, you're drawing blood." Anyway, he liked it.

Accidentally (Committed) for [ profile] storydivagirl
Common Law, Travis/Wes, ensemble
Teen and Up, 9131 words
It sometimes feels like Travis has known Wes for forever, like he was always there, in the background, bitching about the food and judging Travis' life choices. It's weird, because sometimes Travis will be looking at an old photo and think to himself man it's weird that Wes wasn't in this shot I would've totally made him be in this shot and then he'll remember that it's a picture of his second foster mom from 1990 and that's fucked up.

This was my main assignment and it's ridiculous, but I made myself laugh quite frequently while writing, so whatev I think it worked.

Okay so I have this dilemma.

Right now, I'm absolutely positive that I want to move away from Iowa. It's not that I don't like it (well, I. I just. I have complex feelings about it, basically.) it's just - I need to be somewhere else for a while. If I don't, and I end up spending the rest of my life here because I didn't get off my ass and go somewhere I'm gonna hate myself.

My problem is, I have no idea where I want to go. My dream place would be London, but uh I am not a MAGICIAN and am in fact a POOR YOUNG PERSON WITH NO HIGHLY SPECIFIC QUALIFICATIONS so that's pretty much a pipe dream, unless I get into a grad school over there or something. Which, LOL yeah let's dream a little bigger.

I know I'd like a somewhat mild climate (Iowan winters, ugh, I'm so done) and lots of culture, and reliable public transit so I hopefully wouldn't have to fuck around with a car, but other than that I've got nothin'. So I'm asking all you fine people, if you're so inclined, to talk at me for a bit about the area where you live.

What would you tell someone who wanted to move there, basically? Pros and cons? Invitations to crash on your couch? (lol I'd be careful with that one I am fairly sure that nobody wants to see my cranky ass in their living room first thing in the morning) Would you tell someone to live where you live? Or do you absolutely loathe it and want to preemptively warn me away? I'm hungry, babies. Feed me.

(If you're uncomfortable talking about where you live in a public post, I'd be more than happy to screen your comments, just let me know.)

Ugh, I almost wish I was one of those Midwestern people that dream about moving to NYC or something. At least then I'd have a goal. All I know right now is that I don't wanna be here. Where I'd like to be is the hard part.
