The wonderful and oh so generous crowroad3 has written me a deliciously beautiful fic to fill a wish I left on Day 6 of the Snowflake Challenge. As always with crowroad3's work, it's painted with magical words and is just so creative. It's short and perfectly formed, so please read and comment;

How I Want You Green

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. Maybe someone will grant a wish, or maybe you will grant a wish.

1. A h/c Sam Winchester icon would be a lovely treat!
2. A little SPN gen drabble fic. Something about Sam and Dean's final moments together (I can't get enough bittersweet bro-mos!)
3. I'd also like an SPN Christmas icon if possible! Or maybe just a pretty Christmas tree that I can use.
4. I'd like to encourage people to be as active in their fandom as they can! Post and comment, squee and interact, and lets keep our fandoms active, happy, and welcoming places to be.

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

I try to consume as many fanworks as I can whether it's art, fic, vids, thinky thoughts, etc, so this is actually quite difficult for me. I think I'll go with some recs for things that were created for me for challenges:

1. Hope for Happiness (PG13 Gen. Sam and Dean) by excoyote for spn_summergen. This fic is a thing of quiet and tender beauty and is written with such heart and feeling, and the most gorgeously written Sam POV.

2. Promenade (PG13 Gen. Sam and Dean) by frozen_delight for spnspringfling. This is a beautiful, bittersweet and perfectly formed pocket-sized fic.

3. The Long Road Home (PG13 Gen. Sam and Dean) by kcscribbler for spn_j2_xmas A wonderfully written curtainfic that features so many things that I love, including smart boys, spot on brotherly banter, and a perfect road trip for our boys.

4. Is it cheating to rec my own rec lists? I'm going to do it anyway because there's just so much talent in this fandom. So here is a list of 10 recs from 2016's spnspringfling and here is a list of 10 recs from 2016's spn_summergen.

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.

Once great thing about fandom is meeting new people, and I'm always open to that. I've been (slowly) working my way through the spn_j2_xmas fic and art gifts so I've left quite a comments to new people today and over the last few weeks. But if there's anyone out there who would like to make a new friend, please feel free to drop me a line!

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

1. I'd like to complete and post a fic that isn't linked to a challenge. Over the years I've noticed a trend where more and more of my work has stemmed from a challenge/prompt and while there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, it's come to the point now where 100% of my fics are challenged based, and I actually struggle to write when I don't have a deadline. So I'd like to be stricter with myself this year.
2. Write a drabble for each episode of season 12 (so far, so good. I did this for season 11 and I'd like to keep it up as it helps to keep me more active in fandom).
3. I really would love to work with an artist again this year (2015 was the lovely becc_j and 2016 was the wonderful quickreaver, so I'm on a roll!!!)

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul.

Supernatural introduced me to fandom. Before it there were many shows that I enjoyed and would watch over and over, but nothing made me seek out more; whether that was spoilers, photos, interviews etc. It was while looking for something more that I stumbled across fanfiction, and then the idea of fandom in general.

Over the years my experience of SPN fandom has changed. I've gone from being an anonymous lurker and commenter, to opening accounts and posting stories, to taking part in challenges, and meeting and interacting with a whole group of people who I consider friends. This is a huge thing for me, something that I hope has changed me in a positive way, and certainly something that has enriched my life. So yes, Supernatural has left a mark, and a very big and important one too.

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.

I'm a little late to this party, but I love this challenge and I don't want to miss out this year so I'm playing catch up. I always struggle with reccing my own work and for that reason alone, it's also one of the challenges that I make myself complete. So here we go;

1. Heart's Desire (Sam and Dean, gen. PG13). This was written for 2016 spn_j2_xmas secret Santa challenge for kcscribbler. It's been a long time since I wrote a curtain/future fic, and I love both reading and writing them, so it was so much fun writing one again. Plus, it's always such a joy gifting a fic, and also receiving one. As it turned out kcscribbler wrote for each other this year, which was such a joy!

2. The T-Shirt (Sam and Dean gen. PG13). This was written for a prompt by kettle_o_fish for the Happy Birthday, Sammy! challenge at ohsam. It was a late entry, but I just couldn't get the prompt out of my head. It's a short but sad fic, and while I've written things similar to this, for some reason this one really stands out as something special. Despite the subject material, I'm very fond of it.

3. Heartstrings (AU J2. PG13). This was a collaboration with the wonderful quickreaver for the 2016 spn_meanttobe challenge. This was my first year taking part in this delightful challenge, and I was lucky enough to work with such a wonderful artist. I had a blast writing this fic, and working with the prompt. This was only my second experience working with an artist on a project, and I do hope to collaborate with more artists in 2017.
