day o3:
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.

o1. some things take root (tw, allison/lydia, gen)

"lydia?" the image on the screen asks and lydia's unflappable facade is completely unraveled, because it's her. it's allison.

the image goes in and out between bits of static, but she manages to make out one thing.
“help me.”

along with this being the longest fic i've ever written, it was also the hardest, specifically plot wise. it's a fix-it fic and i had to come up with a way to fix allison's death that was a) plausible, b) somewhat original, c) went along with the accompanying art piece. i also had to get into lydia's headspace which i find pretty difficult, especialy during the time that the fic is set in and her inward/outward thoughts/feelings/expressions were at a battle with each other and just writing her in general was a difficult task and the entire thing is from her point of view. it was also hard to incorporate allison/lydia and have it still feel organic and flow naturually when allison isn't physically there for the majority of the fic. it's just a fic that i feel i put so much work into and it didn't really get that much of a response.

o2. ghost with a beating heart (hp, draco, gen)
following the fiendfyre incident, draco decides to live on water. only on water. nothing else.

this fic is incredibly important to me as it was for the [ profile] hp_mhealthfest and dealth with an eating disorder and pyrophobia. as someone with mental health issues and someone who has struggled with an eating disorder in the past, this fic was incredibly personal for me. but that's why i chose the prompt that i did, that's why i wanted to write it. i had to really think about the wizarding world and different ways an ED could manifest there which was somewhat challenging. because it's so personal the lack of response feels kind of like an affront to me almost? if that makes sense?

o3. got the green light, got a little fight (that 70's show, jackie/hyde, gen)
"you just kissed me."

"yeah, well, it's the only way i know how to shut you up, so."

this was my t70ss fix-it fic for the series finale and hyde/jackie. i just love this fic? which i usually don't say about any of my work but i really thought that i got the characters and the voice of the show and just everything about it right this time. but while it got a pretty good number of hits, it only got two comments and around 30 kudos which makes me think that i actually got everything wrong and don't know the characters/show/pairings like i thought.
