tommygirl: (buffy - trio)
This weekend was crazy and busy. Not necessarily bad, but last night I was feeling frazzled and stressed out, so I couldn't shut down my brain and sleep. So now I'm exhausted and I really should be focusing on work that needs to get done. It's just a day of sorts that began with my somehow changing my Prius from MPH to Kilometers and no answer on it in any of the manuals. Luckily Google is my friend and it was an easy fix (because I really didn't want to take it to the dealership, have them press a button and look at me like I'm an idiot).

I want to finish up the fandom snowflake challenge and then I've got a bunch of things battling my frazzled brain for control at the moment. So let's start there.

Day 13: In your own space, write about a moment in fandom that meant a lot to you. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

There are a lot of moments in fandom that mean a lot to me. I really love how generous people are with their times and talents, especially when shit hits the fan for fellow fandom members or just the world in general. I love that someone on our friends list can say they're having a crappy day and people might write them a drabble or doodle something up to make the crappy day better. Fandom has its moments of wank and drama, but the majority of people involved, at least in my experience, are cool and amazing.

On a personal level, I'd say one of my favorite fannish experiences was going to Winchestercon back in the day. I got to meet a lot of fellow fangirls that I talked to, others that I admired, and it was just a fun experience. I wasn't sure how a quiet girl like myself would deal, but I was so glad that I decided to go and enjoy myself.

Day 14 - Go forth and commit an act of kindness. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it, tell us about it if you’re comfortable doing so.

I did my random act of kindness anonymously, but it's done.

Day 15 - In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share you love and squee as loud as you want to. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so

Dear fandom friends,

You guys always make this place worthwhile. I love that we can all go off, get lost in our real world lives, and come back, picking up where we left off with each other. I love how generous most people are, how people support each other within fandom and stand up for each other. I love having other people out there that love the same things that I do and get how it can eat at your brain and take over. I love how awesome most people in fandom are, despite attempts from some to create drama and wank. Continue to be awesome, fandom. The next four years will be hard for some people and fandom remains a great safe haven for some of us.

To my friends list in particular: Thank you for making even stressful days better. Thank you for being around with random fannish fun and understanding when I disappeared after my mother died and life happened. Thank you for being great people that I admire, get envious of (in good ways) and care about.

Love,

Mare

tommygirl: (sports night - high five)
So I managed to write a few things for [community profile] fandom_stocking but I still have a few more bookmarked to do something for or I started and got distracted, never finishing in time. Figured I would share now that the recipients got to enjoy the little fanworks. As always, if you've read my stuff before, you know that titles are never my strong point.

The Lost Bet
- Captain America, Steve/Bucky - Steve wins a bet and Bucky ends up at Ikea.

Holiday Plans - Hawaii 5-0, Steve/Danny - Danny might be freaking out about upcoming holiday plans.

Never Easy - The Losers, Jake/Cougar - Jensen isn't the easiest patient, but Cougar tries to focus on the fact that Jake is still alive.

Danny and the Volvo of Doom (did I mention the title thing?) - Sports Night, Danny/Casey - Danny gets himself hurt. Casey worries. And Dan really just wants to make out with his boyfriend on the couch.

If any of you on my friends list had stockings, feel free to link me to them. I know it's after the fact, but it can't hurt. I've got a large writing goal to make this year!

Also, the Cuddles for Comfort fanfest is going until February 14th, so feel free to leave some prompts if you want. My fandoms are listed in my user info, but usually if I know a fandom, I'd be willing to give it a go.

Actually, even without the cuddles for comfort, feel free to leave any prompts and I'll do my best to provide at least a drabble in the next week or two.  I really need to get out of my head and write.
