Day 03

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.


Looking At The Ground
Person of Interest | Reese/Finch | gifset
Many of my favourite things I've done this past year have been gifsets. This one took about 8 hours to complete, and I was pretty much smitten with it from start to finish. Their faaaaces. It kills me. All the pining.

Soulmates
Life on Mars | Sam/Gene | gifset
This poem appeared on tumblr and I just had to apply it to synchronized policing husbands. I'm still amazed by how many notes it got! My OTP lives on. I oversaturated the colours a little bit, but it doesn't detract from the overall message.

There's A Colour In Your Hands
Person of Interest | Harold/Grace/John | G-rated fic | 1336 words
Why do I love OT3s so much? I remember being giddy for at least a day after writing this one. Completely domestic fluff, with a tiny bit of angst sprinkled on top, because Reese is a giant sad puppy.

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.

Day 6

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something.


So it HAD to be a drabble.

The Love In His Eyes

He can cover his mouth with a hand to hide a smile. The distance of a phone link can disguise butterflies, an offhand quip to reassure himself that his voice remains level, that he's holding onto decorum. He's not afraid of sentiment, not anymore, but he gets the sense Finch finds it unseemly. John lifts the lid only when Harold needs it, a reminder that Reese needs him, that he is his 'someone new'.

When their gazes meet, it all surfaces. There's no burying everything he feels. Harold's eyes drink it in and reflect his love back to him, multiplied.

Day 5

In your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. How did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity?


I started writing and reading fic with Harry Potter, then discovered Doctor Who which I didn't properly write for but it provided a bridge to Life on Mars fandom, where I have been content writing fic for nearly 8 years now. There has been the odd foray into Torchwood, Starsky and Hutch and Cabin Pressure, but I've always come back to LoM. Just in the past six months I've discovered Person of Interest and been completely captivated by it.

My name is...I find it a great comfort that... however far away I am from people I love, barring a sudden relocation to an alien planet, we will always be under the same sky. Sky became my fannish nickname slightly by accident, but after several years I feel like I fully own it. I love meeting up with my best fannish friends and hearing them call me Sky in person.

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.


1) A Person of Interest Reese/Finch fanvid to My List by The Killers. The lyrics, in my opinion, are pretty damn perfect. Starts out Reese PoV and then switches to Finch at 'Don't give the ghost up'.

2) Vidding advice/tutorials. Please please please. I have Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 but no clue how to use it. I haven't had much luck getting clips into there. It just keeps saying all the filetypes aren't compatible.

3) Person of Interest Harold/Nathan fanart (or even fic). Remember this scene in 1x12 Legacy where Finch goes back to Nathan's old loft with Will? It took me ages to realise that's a swimming pool, and Harold stands and gazes out at it for long enough that...my slasher's imagination started to wander. But I can't draw. So I would adore it if something could exist of Nathan and Harold sitting in that pool.

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.


Dust Yourself For Fingerprints And Grin
Life on Mars (UK) | Sam/Gene/Annie | NC-17/Brown Cortina/Explicit | 3676 words
Because I reread this last night just on a whim and quite objectively thought...this is pretty good. The pacing is good, the characterization is good, try as I might I couldn't find a sentence that I would change if I wrote it again. I like how Annie is in control, how she divides her attention between them, their sense of teamwork. I love the shift of atmosphere from winter cold to cosy warmth.

Harold's boyfriends appreciating his genius
Person of Interest (CBS) | Harold/Nathan and Reese/Finch | Not rated (SFW)
I finally learnt how to gif in 2014 and this is my favourite thing that I posted. Finch has shot right to the top end of my all-time favourite characters list, and people praising him just makes me happy. His humble reactions to said praise reaffirm how flipping gorgeous he is.

Slow Dance
Life on Mars (UK) | Sam/Gene | G/White Cortina
Not from 2014, unlike the first two. Because I'm still not someone who can do fanart (however much I wish I could), but I'm forever proud of how this manip turned out.
