Well, I'm working on Day 4 (which is creating a fanwork) and Day 5 is actually "leaving feedback" (which I've done, but don't wish to link to).  Day 6 is "create your own challenge."

And mine is really simple, and it's for all you X-Files fans and writers who still lurk around this joint.  [livejournal.com profile] deslea posted something on Facebook tonight about Livejournal that made me freshly nostalgic.  The upcoming limited series version of The X-Files is doing the same thing.  And I know there is a thriving XF microfandom over on Tumblr.  BUT.  I really, really want to see some XF stuff over here.  Revive our communities for the length of the series, whatever (you know I'm doing that with the Harem!).  

Let's breathe some life back into our communities, even if it's brief.  [livejournal.com profile] erries - what say you?  :-)

Day 3 - In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created.

(first off, linking back to the challenge master post for reference)

Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream - Stephen King's IT - Post-book, Richie Tozier in high school and his last run-in with It.  Essentially a coming-of-age.  It's one of my favorite stories from the smaller fandoms; Richie was always one of my favorite King characters, and it was fun trying to get in his head.  I kept him out of a later story because I liked this version of him too well.

A Dread of West and a Love of East - The X-Files - I've been the most prolific in XF, of course.  I've written a lot of stuff I'm fond of, some stuff I think sucks (or could at least have used more work before posting), but the story I like the best is this one, about Scully and the pull she begins to feel leading up to "Patient X." 

And Death Shall Have No Dominion - Buffy the Vampire Slayer - I come back to this story every so often, especially when doing a rewatch, because I wrote it after a really emotional rewatch of the fifth season.  I don't really remember when I originally posted it, maybe 2008?  In any event, I know I wrote it having knowledge of my mother's illness, because it was while she was sick that season five was the hardest to watch.  I haven't written a lot in BtVS and I don't know if I ever will again, but this was hands-down my favorite story there.

Day 2 - Create a fandom wishlist.

I think I'm mostly going with stories I'd like to see.  

1 -Inside Out stories set in the parents' heads, especially Mom's, before/during/after the movie.  I didn't think to ask for this for Yuletide, but now I really want it, probably because this movie became the overnight favorite at our house.  The one I really want is from Mom's Emotions' POV during her pregnancy and while Riley is still an infant, noting that by the time we meet Mom, Sadness is the leader.  Another that would be great is one detailed scenes from the film from Mom or Dad's POV, especially anything that would explain how/why Mom and Dad don't pick up on Riley's extreme disconnect sooner.  Alternate stories from Riley's POV, such as Sadness being left alone because Joy disappears in the tube with the core emotions, and Disgust, Anger, and Fear team up to find her.  The day Disgust appears in Riley's mind, and how it goes.  Sadness and Anger battling it out while Riley is a toddler.   

2 - Inside Out/Frozen fusion, where some of the events of Frozen are told from the POV of Elsa's emotions. Fear at the helm!

3 -  Okay, getting away from Disney.  A crossover I've wanted to write forever, and would love if someone else wrote, is The X-Files/It crossover.  Because no way is Derry, Maine NOT in Mulder's files, and no way he'd ignore it if it was.  There are so many ways to come at this, but my thought is to shift the timelines so that it comes to Mulder's desk as a missing persons case, featuring one of the Losers (probably Ben Hanscom).  Or Ben and Beverly, freaked out over losing their memories a second time, go to Mulder and Scully for help.  OR, Mulder encounters It as a child.  Any scenario at all, really.

4 - Star Wars/Firefly gen. I think there are a great many crossover possibilities, especially in the wake of The Force Awakens.  Shepherd Book as a Jedi who didn't complete his training (OR DID HE).  Reavers in the SW galaxy.  River as a padawan.  Mal as a bounty hunter or a Rebellion pilot (Rogue Squadron!).  Lots and lots of ideas.

Well, here we go.

Day 1 - Talk about why you're participating in Snowflake.

I need to write.  I need to flex these muscles a bit.  I miss fandom for fandom's sake.  Lots and lots of reasons, that boil down to wanting to start this year off with a bit of a fandom kick in the rear.

That's it.  Nothing terribly elaborate or complicated.  It's a thing, I'm doing it (a few days late, but still).
