merryghoul: NYC (NYC 1)
Day 6

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

I kinda do have a fannish wish list. I don't have faith any of it will get done, but I'll post the list anyway.

  • Art for "Invasion of the Ice Warriors" since I've always wanted art after losing the original art when the artist deleted their LJ.
  • A rec list of Vikings (the History TV show) fics--I'd prefer anything set in the canon universe instead of non-canon divergent AUs for this fandom. Any pairing or gen.
  • Recommendations of Big Finish's Doctor Who audio books. Would prefer recs for the Fifth, Sixth, or Seventh Doctor in the main range (mostly because I've heard some of Eight's run in the main range), but if there's something spectacular outside of the main range featuring Five, Six, Seven, and/or Eight (especially Eight's various stand-alone series), please sell me on them. (Note: I've heard The Diary of River Song, Vol. 1, and I plan to listen to Vol. 2 next week.)

    It's been a while since I've done [community profile] snowflake_challenge, and I'd really like to do some of the challenges this year. I say some because day two's activity is to share something in fandom that has changed your life, and I don't feel very passionate about some of the fannish things that lead me to fandom any more. I'm skipping that day. And I won't mention day 4's friending activity here, as I'll add some people through the challenge or from something else. But right now I'm posting day 1, 3, and 5.

    merryghoul: River closeup (River closeup)
    This fic was originally posted on 22 December 2011 for [livejournal.com profile] christmasbang on LJ, a now defunct Christmas-themed bang, obviously. I decided to repost this to clean up some of the HTML and because I wanted the hyperlinks to reflect my username change without redirects. The header has also been changed because the artist who worked on the art for this fic deleted their journal. (And there's nothing to warn for in this fic, really.) I never saved the art, alas.

    merryghoul: car in LA (car)
    I was not expecting to have a rec list that was going to have around sixty-six recs. I guess it's because this year I looked for more fic in book fandoms and because I did get around to seeing at least one of Yuletide's "big for Yuletide" fandoms (Ghostbusters 2016).

    Recs listed under the cut. After reveals, I'm going to add them to my Pinboard account.

    And feel free to correct me on any goofs I've made in my linking or my headers; I think I caught them all before I published this in public, but I might've missed something.

    Dropping this off before I go read the rest of the collection, because it takes me a while to read the collection. (And it'll take me a while to do recs, because I want to read anything I like twice before signing off on it.)

    This is my gift this year, a delightful series of drabbles (telling a story):

    merryghoul: River sonic screwdriver comics (River sonic screwdriver comics)
    (Now unlocked)

    Well, I thought I had an additional Yuletide gift, but that gift disappeared. Not sure why it was taken down. I have my suspicions (especially given the missing assignment snafu earlier this month), but I'll never really know.

    But, on the other hand, I did get a couple of additional Public Call gifts. This one is from [archiveofourown.org profile] mrs_mozzie:

    Characters: Missy (Doctor Who), River Song
    Summary:

    Being raised as a psychopath with any eye to eventual assassination did, on occasion, come in useful.

    (Title from this quote: “We find people of value,' she said, speaking like a teacher addressing a small child, 'and we determine what story they need to hear. It's the story that they're already telling themselves, don't you see? It's the nightmare they believe in. Once you understand that nightmare, you join them in it. Their fear becomes your fear. It's all a shared experience then. And once you have that, once they feel that is the truth, all the way down to their core, then your coping strategy becomes theirs. It's a natural progression. This is the power of a shared narrative. Of the echo chamber.” ― Michael Koryta, Rise the Dark)
