Oz Fics

The [livejournal.com profile] oz_magi posted the reveals and I received not one, but two gifts and a few fills.

Fills for Ryan/Beecher. Prompt: Forever in Oz

Fics:

Title: Holidays in Oz by [livejournal.com profile] cmk418
Pairing/Character(s): Miguel/Ryan
Keyword/Prompt Phrase: Holidays in Oz


The Greatest Gift(s) by [Unknown LJ tag]
Pairing/Character(s): Miguel/Ryan
Keyword/Prompt Phrase: Holidays in Oz

All of these are rare pairings with Ryan O'Reily being very very straight and yet every single one of these stories makes a great case for why he'd be in a relationship with another man. Really great reads if you're into Oz

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner 2018

I've skipped Challenge 12 because it's impossible to create content while at Disney World. There's too much going on for rational thinking.

Day 13:
In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Fannish:
1. Finish the Ron/Draco fest fic that simply doesn't want to come together
2. Get bingo on my Bingo card
3. Write more and stay involved

Real Life:
1. Take care of myself. I really do hate going to the doctor but I really should because of my thyroid problems.
2. Do even more to get the Republicans out of office.


Day 14

In your own space, create your own challenge. Whatever your challenge is, and have fun with it! Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


This is more of a VERY LONG TERM project, but upload the Thin Line (Sirius/Severus) and the Weasleys/Snape archives to AO3

Hola from Walt Disney World. This challenge is probably the only post/comment that will happen until I'm back from vacation.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner 2018

Day 11

Share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I would never considered songs/movies/shows, but books have been my passion since I was a child. There have too many to count and I think each one left me with something, but in fandom, the one book that absolutely changed my life was Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I started the series and instead of 7 books, I found friends and passion and writing. This was back in September 2000, and 17 years later, I'm still in love with this fandom.

The [livejournal.com profile] mini_fest posted its reveals today so prepare to be spanned but first, snowflake challenge.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner 2018

Day 10
In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (Or a few!) Tell us what makes it work for you, and why it appeals to you so much. Talk about what you like to see in fanworks featuring that theme most. Feel free to include recs and examples! Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


PLOT - I really, really love plot. I'll read a good PWP once in a while or works for special fests like Daily Deviant or Kinky fest but otherwise, it's all about plot.

First Time: Very rarely I'll read a story with an established relationship unless it's a sequel of some sort. I love that build up, how do they get together, why they get together.

Banter: Witty characters are the best. I understand it doesn't always work out (see my new one with semi depressed Draco unwilling to argue), but unless there is a specific reason, I love my characters to argue and fight.

Day 9

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.


What I'm most proud of is the many different fandoms/ships I covered. I made a masterlist on LJ and there are currently 460 stories in 40 different fandoms fandoms with 8 crossovers.

In terms of stories, I love to write so many different ships, but I think my Draco/Ron tend to be my favorites. Here, I'm picking three different HP ships even if all Draco related:

- Draco Malfoy and The Slytherin Murders on LJ and AO3: Ron and Draco must work together to find out who is killing children of Slytherin couples.(Draco/Ron; NC-17)

- Law & Order: Wizarding Styleon LJ and AO3: Draco is hired to defend James from a charge of homicide, but a series of events leads them to working together and eventually becoming a couple. (Draco/James Sirius; NC-17) This one started my love affair with James Sirius and next gen.

- Sirius Black and the Land-In-Between on LJ and AO3: The veil is only a temporary stop for Sirius Black, but regaining his humanity won't be easy. (Sirius/Draco; NC-17). This was my first NANO and I'm still very partial to it.

One non HP fic and probably the one I feel is my best fic all around. It's an Oz story written for NaNo. Since it it Oz, expect racial/gender/sexual insults together with drug use, murder and a touch of happiness:

- Hanging On on LJ and AO3: Over the months, Miguel and Ryan need to rely on each other to survive(Ryan/Miguel; NC-17)

Day 8

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I'm going to cheat and pick two of them.

Prisoner of Azkaban - The book made me fall in love with Snape. I liked him since book one, but PoA sealed the deal. It also started my love for Sirius/Severus. The background on the 'adults' was amazing and rendered the books a lot more adult friendly. Of course it helped that I read the book before the first movie came out so I had pictures of the characters in my head and no actor, no matter how good, could change it.

The epilogue of Deathly Hallow. - Now, I know how much fandom DESPISED IT, but I didn't. Sure it might have made it a little more difficult to get Harry and Draco together, BUT you could always ignore it. The epilogue does give us so many new characters to play with and more is always better in my view.

Day 7

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.


I admit that this challenge makes me a little uncomfortable. I've never been in fandom for the recognition, although I do love comments on stories. I find that in the end, friendships and discussions with others are the true test of your impact on fandom.

So if you'd like to talk randomly about other things, stories you enjoyed, times we've met, pairings we share, go right ahead.

6 Recs

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I've noticed that I rarely rec art, so I'm trying to remedy this.

- Head of Ravenclaw: Filius Flitwick by Anon (Filius Flitwick, G). It's Flitwick getting the tree ready for the holidays. The colors are great and the expression on his face is fantastic.

- A Late Winter Night by Anon (Harry/Draco, G). I'm big on colors and it's the first thing I'll notice, but this one is in black and white, which shows just how much I liked it. It's tender and sweet and just perfect.

- Head of Gryffindor: Minerva McGonagall by Anon (Minerva, G). Once again, colors, robes, her expression. I loved it.

- Caffeine, Combat, & Constant Vigilance! by Anon (Harry/Draco, R). Just look at Draco's face, his hair, his everything.

- Seasons by Anon (Harry/Draco, G) 4 pieces of art, one better than the other.

- Don’t be nervous by Anon (Harry/Draco, G) The details in this one are amazing. The robes, the backgrounds, their faces.

Day 6

Leave feedback for a fanwork. Or multiple fanworks. It can be as simple as I liked this to a detailed list of all the things you loved about the fanwork. The key is to leave some sort of feedback.

If you've already left feedback in the course of a previous challenge, it totally counts. But you're free to leave more feedback.

Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!" If you feel so inclined, leave a link to the fanwork you left feedback for so others can check it out.


I've been trying to give as much feedback as possible this Christmas seasn and hopefully it will carry into the new year!

Day 5

Recommend a fannish or creative resource. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


THE FUCKING HARRY POTTER BOOKS!

The movies are fine, but they are hardly accurate. Pottermore can be fun but it's not canon. The Wikia is full of mistakes. So if you want a creative resource, go check the books. In fact, since most of us own more than one copy, don't feel bad downloading a digital version so that you can use the find function, at least until we find a spell to do the same thing with the books.

I will mention one of my biggest Wikia pet peeves. It states that half-bloods are anyone who has at least one Muggle parent and/or grandparent. Then it lists Harry's children as half-bloods. Dude, it's either a or b, but it can't be both, because Harry's children do not have any Muggle parents or grandparents.

Day 4

In your own space, create a fannish wishlist. No limits on size or type of fanwork; just tell us what you’d like to see. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. And if you grant a wish, do the same thing!


1. Transformative Works Statements. I never really thought about a general statement but it seems like such a brilliant thing to add and help in fandom. I hope more people add them.

2. STRANGER THINGS ANYTHING. Seriously, I'd love to know about comms about this fandom since I can't find anything.

3. More James Sirius/Draco and/or James Sirius/Scorpius. They are such minor pairing and I love them both.

4. Comments for my fics, for other people's fics. Comments make the fandom feel closer and more loving. So spread the love.
