I took a leaf out of argentumlupine 's book and made a podcast which sort od encompasses both days. Apologies in advance for rapid speed talking, hard-to-understand accent and no structure to my ranting whatsoever!
Love you, fandom! <333

Also, have a ridiculous little sketch which crosses over Bandom with Edward Scissorhands *waves hands* I don't know. Maybe I should post it over at bandom_meme .
( So ridiculous )

In your own space, talk about setting yourself a fannish goal. Big or small, it doesn't matter. Some examples: complete a bingo, sign up for a Big Bang, write that fic you've been thinking about for years, podfic that story that you love, make a fanmix for your fandom, post that bit of meta or reclist you keep putting off. Maybe resolve to be better at leaving feedback or answering comments. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

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.
I don't really talk my fanworks up that often, and I constantly compare them to other people's works, so I figured this would be good for me.

Time: 19:22 minutes
Title: Silly Office Romance Thing
Disclaimer: Don't own, don't sue.
Summary: Mikey's wasting away his life working a humdrum office job that was only meant to be temporary. Now he's stuck in a rut and he can't seem to find a good time to quit. Maybe Frank, the tiny tattooed receptionist who blows in, can finally put a stop to Mikey's excuses.
Influenced a fair bit by the British version of 'The Office'.

Time: 40:16 mins
"What?" Gerard wheezes.
"No, it's just - it's all stuck up." Frank shuffles forwards on his knees and then his hands are in Gerard's hair. Gerard's laughter dies down abruptly. Frank's fingers are surprisingly gentle on his scalp, ruffling it up, carding through it. "We'd probably have to wash it first, though," he says thoughtfully.
Reader's Notes: I've had my eye on this for ages now and I recorded it months ago, but it was just one of those podfics that I was never happy with. I re-edited last night and now I'm finally posting. \o/

A little sketch I did for akamine_chan 's cute bandom_meme prompt 'Party Poison/Fun Ghoul, kink: tenderness '. It's a kink-themed round at the moment, which sort of limits what I can draw as a lot of people are a bit squicked out by graphic, kinky drawings, so Aka's prompt was perfect. This is also a celebration of sorts ending my secondary schooling - now onto university!
Hope you enjoy!
This was a lot of fun to draw! I'm not exactly happy with the way it turned out (mostly it's the half-assed background) but the idea was great to work with. This is set sort of during early Revenge era. I messed around with canonical time frames a bit, I think.
I thought that if the band were vampires, they'd use an umbrella to stay out of the sun while they're outside. This picture makes no sense at all. If it were a fic, it would be crack.

Not many interesting things, but things!
RL update: I've finally finished secondary school, officially! It feels great to never have another English class. Now all I have left is my exams and then it's (hopefully) off to uni!
I will have a little bit more free time for the next few weeks, so I can be more active in fandom. At the moment I've signed up for the
I also signed up for imadeathing but I've yet to choose a prompt - I think I will choose embroidery or needlework as I have a stupid big Mario Mushroom I should have finished a long time ago and I would like to get it finished over Christmas in time for the deadline. I'll probably also start about five other things because I just do that.
I'm still steadily editing what I have of various half-recorded podfics. I'm really wary of the sound quality changing as I stop/start recording, so I'm waiting for a long period of time in which I can just finish recording a whole bunch in one go.
I also drew some sketches! They're not illustrations for stories or anything, but at least I'm drawing. It's great to not have to draw things for school anymore.
( Drawings! )
Also, I ordered a Smashing Pumpkins shirt from eBay and I'm really excited waiting for its arrival.
I hope everyone's okay! I've glanced a few podfics in my flist and I need to get around to listening and commenting. :D
