Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner

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.

Well, this is timely, since it's my birthday tomorrow. ;) I am very multi-fannish so most of those are open to any fandom, but I will put a list of the fandoms I'm most familiar with at the bottom (in cases of works in other fandoms, it's best if I won't need fandom knowledge to enjoy them). This list is a little long, not because I'm greedy but there are a lot of fannish things I love and I wanted to give fans and creators of all these things a chance to rec/make me things I will love. :) Also 3 of my wishes are craft related and two are more friends related. 

Some new wishes for this year:

1. OTP Songs/Playlists: I always end up making playlists for all my ships. So I'm curious which songs others associate with theirs! Feel free to tell me why as well, if you want.

2. Fannish Crochet/Cross Stitch Patterns: I refound my love for crafting this year and I would especially love tips for fannish crochet and cross stitch patterns. Preferably free patterns, although I'm open to paid ones too.

3. Beginner Quilting Patterns: I made my first quilt as a Christmas present for my son. \o/ I always wanted to learn but have been slow at actually getting around to it. Sooo, if anyone has any tips for quilting tutorials and patterns that are easy and fun for beginners I would love links. I guess this is kind of fandom related because I am also looking for...

4. Fannish Fabric Suppliers in Europe: I keep seeing all these lovely fannish quilting fabrics but everything is in the US and the shipping to here is waaaay too expensive for me. *sadface* In the instances where I have found EU suppliers it has been way more expensive or they have also had horrid shipping rates. So, tips, anyone? At the moment I would especially love tips for Star Trek (TOS), Firefly or Narnia related fabrics since I'm doing some crafting for swaps I need these for.

5. Harry Potter / Star Trek TOS Fanwork Recs: I got into both those fandoms in the past year despite not having consumed many fanworks in them before. Both fandoms kind of predate AO3, so I suspect much of the best fic are not on there, as is the case with other older fandoms I love. My fav pairings for HP are Harry/Draco, Snape/Lily, Snape/Harry, Snape/Draco or Snape/Lucius and my fav pairing for Star Trek is Kirk/Spock, but I will literally read any pairing for good fic. I appreciate recs from the Star Trek reboots also, as long as they don't talk about Kirk's blue eyes... it just throws me. >.>

6. Fanvid Recs: I'm re-finding my love for fanvids, and I'd love more recs for well-made ones. For this one I'd really love fandoms I'm not familiar with as well as those I am - sometimes fanvids are a great enticement to watch new shows! ;)

7. Podfic Recs: I don't spend as much time listening to podfic as I want to, and when I do set time aside I seem to always turn to the same podficcers? So I'd love recs for new podficcers to listen to! Feel free to rec yourself also, I will try to leave good feedback. :)

For both the fanvids and podfics I would love works made just for me as well, of course (my own fics have blanket permission for podfic, as well).

Some repeats from previous years:

8. Recs/New Works in Any Fandom With The Following Themes:
  • Slavery universes where the owner and slave are in love or/and the owner is against slavery. maculategiraffe's The Slave Breakers is a good example of what I love.
  • Femdom! Genderswapped characters are ok but I have a strong preference for characters who identify as female in canon.
  • D/s from the Dominants POV. Esp dealing with how wonderful but also scary it can feel to have someone give you all that power over them.
  • Aftercare! A lot of D/s seems to leave this out, and it's practically my fav part. :( (And remember that sometimes Doms need aftercare, too.)
  • Non-sexual kink. Porn is great but sometimes I really love for the focus to be on other things, such as the power exchange itself, for example, or whatever else inspires you.
  • Werewolves running free. I don't even know, but I have this recent obsession with shifted werewolves running, by themselves, in pairs, in groups, for any reason at all. Doesn't have to be canon werewolves.

9. More Fannish Friends: I am always looking for more fannish friends. Especially ones near me (I live in the south of Sweden), but anywhere is great! If you are open to creating together, cheerleading and/or betaing then even better. I am open to doing the same for you. Feel free to also check out my Twitter and Tumblr, where I am a little more active than here, to see if you think we could be friends. :) I would also love more fannish people to Skype, AIM or Gchat/Hangouts, just message me for details.

10. (Fannish) WoW Friends: I will firstly admit that I am only periodically active, but when I am I love to do stuff together with friends! I no longer raid and I recently had a lengthy break from it so WOD is still pretty new to me - I'd love people to help me through the new content. I have accounts on both EU (Alliance & Horde) and US (Alliance, but can level a Horde char too). My battletag is Armanya#2831.

Fandoms Preferences (in no particular order): Kingsman, Avengers/MCU, Dragon Age, Firefly, Babylon 5, Star Trek, Star Wars, Teen Wolf, Queer as Folk, Lord of the Rings, Suits, White Collar, Person of Interest, BBC Sherlock, The Sentinel, Bandom, One Direction, Adam Lambert.

Hm, I might have some recs for you:

A Matter of Trust by josan and kai. Harry Potter, Snape/Shacklebolt, written after OOTP.
Quid Pro Quo by tales_of_josan. Harry Potter, Harry/Draco/Snape. They discover a different kind of magic (and kinky sex on the way^^).
Two Worlds and In Between by Minerva McTabby. Harry Potter, gen, Hogwarts at the time Albus Dumbledore was a student. Sadly not finished, but still one of my all-time favourites.

I remember a lot more classic HP fics before AO3. If you are interested, I could go look what I have bookmarked in my old delicious account. If I can find the password again, that is^^ As for podfic, I don't have that much HP podfic I like, but because you said you wanted to try different readers, I'll include two podfics in other fandoms, read by two of my favourite readers:

Reparations written by saras_girl, read by 6shotamericano. Harry Potter, Harry/Draco (pre)slash. "Harry is about to discover that the steepest learning curve comes after Healer training, and that second chances can be found in unexpected places."
Sonata Form written by cj_ludd18, read by FayJay. Sherlock, gen. "Mycroft Holmes has always revolved his life around that of his little brother, whether he wishes to do so or not."
Professions written by gqgqqt, read by regonym. Avengers, Clint/Coulson.

And finally, vids I like in any fandom:

Friends For Dinner by Andrew Kuhar. Hannibal/Friends crossover, trailer vid.
If somebody hurst you by katdepp. Hannibal, focussing on Will Graham. What I love about it is that it's paced incredibly well with the music, incorporates sound snippets very well, and still tells a me something about the character. Don't watch if you're squicked by gore and bizarre ways to kill people, though.
In The Bullpen by genusshrike. Avengers, Natasha-centric.
Whole New Way by mresundance. Sherlock Holmes in a lot of incarnations. I love the way different materials are put together here, including books and fandom stuff.
Hannibal. Without People. by coldmirror. Hannibal, gen. Haunting and beautiful.
History Repeating by luminosity and killabeez. Highlander, Amanda-centric. I don't know if the vid is still up under the link given, but even if it's not, it's definitely worth chasing down.

OK, that were a bit more recs than I planned on, but there is just so much awesome stuff out there, I could probably go on forever. Have fun looking around!^^
