Day 2
In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.

- Give me icon requests? I did these for Life on Mars ladies recently, and it reminded me how much I thoroughly enjoy the process. I don't mind which fandom, or no fandom, I'd just like the satisfaction of seeing someone use a thing I made while they are blogging. (Is that weird? There would of course be no obligation if you didn't like them that much, um.)

- Person of Interest Root/Shaw fic recs or meta, specifically those that deal with the stuff that went down in the second half of Season 4. I started a fic called For Sacrifice (spoilers) to try and fill in the gaps between episodes from Root's perspective, and then realised I just don't have a clue what to write. What is Root doing when she's offscreen? I'd love to read other fan theories on that, and hopefully get some inspiration for my own WIP too. (Doesn't have to be Season 5 compliant, although I don't mind spoilers on that front.)

- Short (< 30 mins) podfic recs. I was really into listening to podfic a couple of years ago and then I somehow lost my way. I'd like to get back into that if I can.

I haven't heard a good LoM podfic in so long, it'd be nice to see if we could unearth some :)

Speaking of LoM, I had the best idea for a fic the other day, but just haven't had chance to jot it down....looks my my LoM muse is rising ;)

Ahaha!!! Still have a fan in the fandom huh? ♥ :D I might hit you up for a quick nosey at the premise once it's jotted out, if that's okay?

I was also thinking of stepping back in to my Who's To Say 'Verse...What do you think?

Nostalgia is right! I've even managed to get some spn'ers to read it :D

I'd really like a few ACD Holmes icons, either Sidney Paget or Granada if you were interested.

In their rooms at 221B or there's the classic on the train scene. Thank you.

Wonderful. I feel totally spoilt.

Please can I write you a ficlet to say thank you.

That will most certainly be provided, although it may take me a few days before I can write it.

Thank you so much, they are awesome.

Do you make animated icons? Because I have some requests for them but I don't want to trouble you if you don't want to make them, haha.

From: [identity profile] healyg.livejournal.com
Okay then! Here are some of the avatars I want you to animate (http://cubewatermelon.tumblr.com/post/131076312362/got-some-avatar-requests-for-different-characters). Could you animate the sparkly eyes on the monster kid in the striped shirt in the top right-hand corner? If that's too much, then I'd like you to animate the two avatars in the bottom right-hand corner (the one of the dinosaur in glasses) so that it flips between the two. (I'm not sure what you'd call this. Also, you may want to change the backgrounds so they match.) Thank you very much, whatever you choose to do!

That's okay! I'm sorry I wasn't of much help for your challenge.

I find it intriguing that you're requesting icon prompts so we can get gifts from you. *g*

That said, I requested icons in my Day 2 post, if you've still got the time and inclination. [Robert/Sol (Grace and Frankie), Peter/Chris (Teen Wolf), Ragnar/Athelstan (Vikings), Hansel (or Hansel & Gretel) (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters), or TJ (Political Animals).]

Full disclosure, someone else has offered to make me some, and I've found some Hansel & Gretel and Political Animals screencaps to send her. Grace and Frankie is a lot harder because it was a Netflix show and it is really difficult to find screencaps, though I have found a very few and some GIFs. Is it possible to create an icon (not necessarily an animated one) from an existing GIF?

That would be lovely, thank you! I haven't found any Peter/Chris icons. (There have been some interesting Ian/JR tweeted photos - that i saw on Tumblr - if you wanted to use those as well or instead. They make it so easy to slash their characters. *g*)

Sure! This is my peter x chris tag on Tumblr and includes some of the cute Ian-JR moments. The two really good ones are GIFs.

I wish I'd seen this sooner, I actually posted about icons on mine, lol. I don't have any specific urges, just... I posted over here XD

There needs to be more LoM podfic.

If I were the kind of person to leave plot bunnies and run, I would say that it's quite likely that Root is being run on errands for The Machine. Many of them seem like make work or otherwise unrelated plots, much to the aggravation of Root, who has several instances where she threatens to just go find Shaw, with or without The Machine, only for this particular mission to turn out to have been somewhere that Shaw was, and a pointer in the direction of where they went next. The Machine is trying to protect a great asset from getting killed and setting back its plans, Root is trying to get The Machine to just tell her where Shaw is. At some point, Root realizes that Shaw just might be someone she would give up The Machine for. And that's when the Machine is finally ready to let Root go see Shaw...

Icon prompts: Cats and books (and cats+books)?

I wish I had some Root/Shaw recs to share! I haven't read much of them in the past couple of months, but I should really change that...

For icon requests, I have a few on my own wishlist (http://reeby10.livejournal.com/75598.html) if you're interested in doing any of them :) Or Harvey Bullock or Harvey/Jim from Gotham would also be great.

oh I can do podfic recs! from some light snooping on your AO3, it looks like we don't overlap on a whole lot of fandoms, but I've still got some ideas :D

for PoI I rec:

stomach vs heart read by fire_juggler (root/shaw)
Ring read by lunate8 (john/finch, 16min)
Self Defense read by podcath (35min (it's a bit longer than you wanted but it's GREAT)
Detritus read by podcath (john/finch, 20min)
if you don't mind self-recs, I'm really happy with
the rest is silence (john/finch, 17 min)
love and marriage (john/finch, 32 min)
electric (root-centric, 6min)

for Doctor Who, I've got:

In an Interstellar Burst read by cantarina, fishpatrol, paraka and lunchee (martha/rose, 19min)
spitting images read by reenajenkins (donna-centric, 14min)

for Merlin, I've got:

The Week the Sassy Pose Came to Camelot read by lunchee (merlin/arthur, gwen/lancelot; 22min) (my rec here)
The Journal of Geoffrey the Cat. Aged 3 years and 5 months read by lunchee (merlin/arthur, 12min)
damsel in distress read by twilight (merlin/arthur, 31min)
map quest read by pennyplainknits (merlin/arthur, 25:43)

for Harry Potter, I don't really read or listen to much, but fire_juggler has nearly 50 podfics in there, and she has excellent taste and a great reading style

I hope that's enough to get you going again :)
