Happy New Year! DW and Day 1.  
Happy New Year, most beloved Flist! I love you all so very much, I wish you the very best this year, and always! <3

I know a lot of people are backing up at DW. I'm capitu over there as well! And I actually went ahead and imported my_drarry_recs, which is really the content I want to keep safe. I need to get the hang of crossposting. Ugh, is it really worth the hassle? D: LJ kills me.

Onto something else now: I've always wanted to do the Sowflake Challenge. And this year my dearest friend tjs_whatnot volunteered to help run the challenge. I think it's a sign this year is the year! And therefor:

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner

Day 1

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.

Um. Okay. I don't think I have that many fanworks. But surely I can find three? . . . Never mind. Actually, this wasn't that hard. :D

Hi lovely!

Firstly, thank you for your well-wishes, and I hope you have a great 2017 ahead of you, too <3 I'm so happy to share a fandom with you, and I hope to do so for a long time to come :)

Second, so nice you're doing the Snowflake Challenge this year! Your recs and blog have been awfully helpful when I first encountered fandom, but I didn't knew you translated too (which is awesome), and of course you truly outdid yourself last year with all the writing, both the LDWS and the fic co-written with Birds!

PS: I love your winter-themed LJ style, with the lovely art from anemonen I've never seen it before, but it looks stunning and so wintery :)

Ahhhh. My drabbles! I wanted to include them (hence my note about it being easy at the end LOL). It was so much fun doing them.

But all those listed have a very special place in my heart. Thank you!

Yes, my layout! For the last couple of years I've been using her art and Christmas-themed layout for December. I'm sad I'll switch it in the next couple of days, but there's always next year. :D

Being part of fandom with you is THE BEST! *hugs* And I'm happy to see you around more and I'm making a point of not letting you get away again. ;)

Hahahahaha you're too sweet, you always make me so happy! I know, I'm low-key writing again (and also BEYOND EXCITED for kinkfest because I think exploring kinks is one of the most interesting things to write there is (okay and also a good excuse to get the smut on, hahaha)).

And your drabbles were so lovely! I can imagine you had a hard time picking three things, because I loved your drabbles too, and the way you incorporated so much canon in them. Are you considering joining again someday?

welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 1st, 2017 02:55 pm (UTC)
Ohhhh Kinkfest! Yes, I love that fest, I always explore not just new kinks but also new pairs. ;)

I totally am planning to do the LDWS one day! And I think this summer I'll be elegible because like, you can't do it two years in a row, and since I did it last round (wow, 2015, really!? lol) I can this year. We'll see. It was fun! Hey, you should do it as well! Let's! :D
cabinetcaligaricabinetcaligari on January 1st, 2017 03:15 pm (UTC)
Yeah, also the news pairings! I had such a hoot writing two new pairings for NGF this year (and also low-key proud I'm still the only Blaise/ Albus story on AO3 haha). It sort of feels easier I guess to write new pairings, because Drarry has been done so many times already, and done so extremely well by the writers I adore, that I feel I don't have much to add to that.

And yeah, I was considering it too. I've been experiment a bit with different writing styles, and I think it's interesting to explore that further? But also I'm the slowest writer on earth, and the idea of churning something out on a weekly base, well, meep...
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 2nd, 2017 12:28 pm (UTC)
Really??? The only Blaise/Al fic!?!?! You're a visionary! <333

I always love exploring new pairs. For a while, you know how it is, your shipper heart only wants your OTP, but once you start to explore, god, it's amazing and so much fun! I love that writers made me want to do that, you know? :)

You should! I'm not saying writing drabbles is easy or anything, but having a (very) limited word count helps.

I am so excited 1. that the Snowflake Challenge is running, and 2. that you are doing it. This is going to be fun.

I adore all your fanworks. And you totally should add all your awesome podfic covers.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 1st, 2017 02:38 pm (UTC)
Happy New Year, Vaysh! <3333

Yes, finally doing it, after years wishing I had, here I am. :)

I thought about including some covers. I'm particularly proud of them! And I love that they are part of a bigger fanwork, you know? Makes it extra special.

¡Feliz Año Nuevo!!!!!!! I hope you have a fantastic year, lovely!

I also just add you on DW. I've had that account for years as well, but never used it. I imported everything and I think I messed some stuff (and will try to keep crossposting, frankly, I'm more concerned about my community, but I'm with you, unless LJ dies, there won't be a definite migration and will be a back-up. But still, best to be safe? ^^

YAYAYAYAYAY! You're doing it!

I'm already behind, but I'm off to find three things right now! ♥ ♥

You have LOTS of things that you could include as fanworks, but leave it to you to link things that shine others just as well, and also share your ideas on being a good commentor. ♥♥

The world needs more of you! ♥
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 2nd, 2017 12:32 pm (UTC)
We must prevail!

This challenge is going to be a real challenge for me, I can tell. For all that I'm always around I never update daily, more like every other week. But we will! *holds hands*

I thought of the Harry/Ron I wrote, but you know, I don't think I have any of that uploaded it anywhere, and frankly, they probably all need a sturdy revision! :D

wicked smut goddessgracerene on January 1st, 2017 06:15 pm (UTC)

Yes, these are all definitely fanworks!! :D

As for DW, I'm planning on still posting to LJ, but doing regular backups to DW. I like LJ's format too much to switch over right now, TBH.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 2nd, 2017 12:33 pm (UTC)
I think I'll do that as well. I'll probably only cross-post the recs. *nods* Like, make a habit of that, that's the content I was worried.

Happy New Year, lovely! <33

Same to you and yours, dear, Nia! <3

I'm enchanted_jae at DW, and I've added you there.

Toasty love! Bird's fans don't know what they're missing if they're missing out on our best and bravest little toaster!
welcome to villa cariño!: I'm a toaster. <3capitu on January 2nd, 2017 12:35 pm (UTC)
LOL! You know, it's so super to still get comments complimenting that little toaster. It's the best! :D
