Three days of Snowflake again. One of these is me requesting fic recs, so please be so kinda as to take a glance if you are of the fanfiction-reading persuasion.

Day 10: Talk about a creator. Well, since it doesn’t say that this needs to be a creator I’m a fan of or even know, how about this random person I’ve never talked to nor even heard of that randomly PM’d me on ff.n the other day to rec some other random people I’ve never talked to nor heard of?

Subject: story recommendations!


sorry if bothered you

story recommendations

arashi wolf princess has 1 woody/buzz oneshot plans to do
fandom in future

both use livejournal

This made me laugh more than anything. Seriously, where did this come from? None of these people write in the two fandoms I have things up for on ff.n, and though I do ship Woody and Buzz, how the hell does she know that? XD

Day 11: Ask for recs. Aight, folks, give me fic recs. Given that I already have a reading list, here are some guidelines:

* No more than two recs per person

* You may include a third rec if it’s Rurouni Kenshin or Gundam Wing, but no more than two of either one of those also

* Stories around 10,000 words or shorter unless you absolutely absolutely cannot for the life of you keep from mentioning something longer because it’s one of the best damn things you’ve ever read

* Don’t go looking for stories to recommend to me; only rec stuff that comes to mind without searching

* In any of the following fandoms: The 10th Kingdom, Watership Down, Jane Austen, Avatar tL(o)A, the Black Magician Trilogy (Canavan), Cowboy Bebop, Dominic Deegan, GetBackers (anime only), Jem and the Holograms, Kuroshitsuji (manga only), Howl’s Moving Castle and its sequels, Megamind, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Amelia Peabody, Pirates of the Carribbean, Discworld, Harry Potter, Sherlock (to clarify, this is the BBC mini-series, not the original or any stupid adaptation), Labyrinth (and Return to Labyrinth), He-Man/She-Ra, Shoujo Kakumei Utena, World of Warcraft, and, hmm, how about Once Upon a Time since I’ve been so happy with that lately.

Day 12: Rec at least three fanworks that you think would make a good intro into XYZ fandom. I literally haven’t the faintest. There are several problems with this, to me. First, “intro into the fandom” means what, exactly? Into the fandom as a whole, with all its tropes and subculture and peculiar flavor? Or into a particular corner of it, say, one pairing? Also, am I to assume the person being introduced is familiar with canon, or not? Because if not, I’d say the best introduction to the fandom would be the canon in most cases (Weiß Kreuz totally excluded).

Also, everyone is different; everyone takes something different out of the canon, expects something different from the fandom, and enjoys different types of fanworks. How on earth am I supposed to choose works from any fandom that would serve as a good introduction to it to anyone else?

That being said, check out this badass pony artist.
