Snowflake Challenge: Day One

Because I don't know. I felt like giving it a go, I guess. [personal profile] snowflake-challenge: Day One.

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 generally specialise in small fandoms, but one thing that I wrote turned out to be quite popular. It's based on The Tribe, which hardly anybody watched, or so I thought. Sometime in the near future, a deadly virus wiped out all adult life, and turned the whole world into Lord Of The Flies gone mad. It was very low budget, and some of the acting was a bit ropey, but dear heaven was it a fan fiction writer's paradise. And, to be fair, some of the characters, and some of the acting, were very good indeed. After a couple of years it went off the boil, though. Most of the cast left, and I hated what the show turned into. So I wrote an alternate season four, that somehow amounted to more than two hundred thousand words over more than a year. And people actually wanted to read it. That was kind of fun. Tribe Fury: Introductory Blurb.

Another thing I wrote that turned out to be something people actually wanted to read (this is a novel experience for me), was The Dark One, an appallingly titled Robin Of Sherwood story that carried on where the series left off. For once I think I did a fairly good job of it, which is not something I think very often. The Dark One. I only wish I could have thought of a better title!

One day there was a new series of Doctor Who, but I didn't love it as much as I loved the old one. And then one day new Doctor Who introduced Captain Jack. (And took him away again almost immediately. But still). A time-travelling, space-adventuring conman! Hello new form of procrastination. Captain Jack And The Monster From Space happened soon after, as did its sequel, Captain Jack And The Ship That Flew. Spaceships and pirates and Jack. I must be honest, they wrote themselves; I had very little say in the matter. The Monster From Space and The Ship That Flew. I like to think they turned out okay.

Something a bit different to end on. There was a video that I really wanted to make. It needed to be made, and quite obviously nobody else was going to do it, for all manner of very good reasons. You see, there's this show called Days Of Our Lives. It's a soap, and I readily admit that it's awful, although it wasn't always. Well, it probably was. Whatever. Anyway, two of the characters are Stefano and John. Stefano believes that John belongs to him. He has consequently spent the last thirty years kidnapping John, confiscating his shirt, and chaining him to things. And getting him tattooed, specifically to show the world who he belongs to. This is actually canon, I promise. Anyway, because Days seems to be almost entirely watched by quite conservative housewives, I'm apparently the only person in the world who has noticed how spectacularly slashy this all is. Well, except for the actors. I'm pretty sure they've noticed. Anyway, I made a video. Somebody had to. It's low res due to the quality of the source material, and I can't even pretend that it's good, but like I said, it needed doing. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.

It seemed like a good idea at the time...
