A few years ago, I wrote a big bang story called 'Breathing Underwater', for Dearka/Yzak/Shiho from Gundam SEED/Destiny. At the time, I'd listed a few songs that had been influential to the story and, since I need to finish a few expanded scenes for the story and had it on my mind, I thought I'd also expand the song list a bit and make it into a proper soundtrack. ^_^;

Hello! First post in this comm! C:

This is the second (complete) fanmix I've made ever; they're lots of fun! A couple of songs kept nagging at me to be made into a mix, so I spent a little while putting this together!

Title: her tears like diamonds
Fandom: Diabolik Lovers
Pairing: Yui Komori/Ayato Sakamaki
{listen here!}

30 minutes long; track list below!

Well, if I'm honest, it's specifically a fanmix for Vidar, where "Vidar" really should be taken to mean "Gaelio and Ein, basically through the whole damn thing". *snrk*

The songs are meant to run in basically chronological order, and usually (but not always!) apply to one or the other of the characters in question. I fail at proper playlists, so alas these are just a series of YouTube links; maybe I'll clean it all up some time down the line?

also, screw Fanlore and its "rules"

So, here is 'Synchronism':

I'm not the best at the fanmix concept, but I gave it a shot. Cheers ;3

 I've never actually made a fanmix before so I had a lot of fun! Although I've disregarded a lot of the rules in that guide on the Fanlore entry, haha.

The fanmix is called endure also the thorns, for the ship Balaban/Beyazit of the manga Shokoku no Altair and can be found here.

Also called Fan Soundtracks, or FSTs, Fanmixes are fanmade mixtapes inspired by fandoms, pairings, characters, etc. While some accompany other works, such as Big Bang fics, many are made as unique fanwork. Often, creators make CD-case-sized art depicting front and back covers for their mix.

The challenge: make your own mix. Four song minimum, art optional. There's no rules on what the mix can be for- a character, a movie, BPAL perfume, dinosaurs... nor any song-length requirements.

Posting can be done however is easiest - 8tracks link, link to a Youtube playlist, etc.

Ten icons, yay!

Originally I'd planned to do a set of Lasswell exclusively, but with relatively limited resources (and cropping being a pain in the arse to still get what I wanted) I decided bah, Rain can sneak in also. Lasswell doesn't let the dumbarse out of his sight anyway when he can help it --

Then a crystal icon, because of course. And one of Shera's chibi design because Shera ~

I love making icons :D Well, sort of. In times past, I could be very diligent about making a background for every icon and all that jazz, but these days I'd much rather just crop and edit the lighting, colouring, etc. of the picture itself. I guess these days I just go for a simpler style.

6 100x100 icons of Sakurauchi Riko
6 100x100 icons of Koizumi Hanayo
12 200x200 icons of Kaname Madoka or Ultimate Madoka

The Madoka icons are bigger because Tumblr, but they'll work just fine on DW!

If anyone wants to request Madoka Magica icons, feel free! I'm really happy to make them!

This was a fun challenge. I decided to try seasons 1-2 of The Americans since that's what I've been binging at the moment. It's a hard show to icon because it resists visual stylization so much (and is shot SO DARK).

Icons! Over the last few months, I've seen a lot of people coming/returning to Dreamwidth from Livejournal, Tumblr, and other sites... and then promptly mention their lack of (current) icons.

While we're just going to make a handful of icons for ourselves or others, icon-making has been a popular challenge-type for many years. Some people maintain their own communities for the icons they've made, some fandoms have communities just for icons, and challenges like icontests, LIMS (Last Icon Maker Standing), and 20 in 20 (20 Icons in 20 Days) have been popular.

The challenge: make at least five icons. They can be fannish or non-fannish and as un/fancy as you'd like.

don't worry, there's no voting - I don't want to be the first off the icon island

If you have no idea what to make icons of, feel free to leave a comment offering to make icons for others. Please only do this if you're sure you can follow through, though.

If you need somewhere to host your icons for display, all DW accounts have image hosting.

I didn't nearly finish the challenge (I should have known that two character lists was biting off more than I could chew, and in the end I didn't even finish one), but I did write four stories! One Marvel Cinematic Universe, three Dragon Age: Inquisition, all posted on AO3, all flashfic, all gen or mostly gen.

Rule 34
The first time Natasha Romanoff and Daisy Johnson... Timeframe vague, minor spoiler for Agents of SHIELD S4, Ep12

"Josephine and Varric were supposed to go shopping, but..." Set at an unspecified time during Inquisition, no spoilers.

Cassandra sneaks into Varric's room in the middle of the night. DA:I, post-Guilty Pleasures, has spoilers for that quest.

Cassandra and Scout Harding, "We Need to Do This Together." Set during the Jaws of Hakkan DLC but no real spoilers for it.

1. First, I want to apologize for not getting January's masterlist, completion banner, and related-activities post up this month. February basically turned into a series of computer and internet-connectivity issues for me and while they're finally cleared up, I got way behind on a lot of things. Posts for January and February should be up by the end of this weekend.

2. Amnesty is always ongoing.

3. March's challenge is not going to be a writing challenge. Details should be up tomorrow!

4. Don't forget about our AO3 Collection!

I did the thing =D !
All works are crossovers, and they range between 400 and 1000 words. Sorry for posting them all over the place, though...

descriptions and links are under the cut )

This has been so much fun!

Welp. I was intending (hoping?) to write longer ficlets this time around but then the whole month basically conspired against me in a fit of work hours, feet of snow and other nuttery.

So, drabbles it is after all!

Here are the prompts for February's Character Mad-Libs! Don't look at the lists if you're planning to participate. Instead, sign-up over here, on the sign-up post. (If you somehow accidentally see the prompts and need them scrambled, let me know.)

There are two prompt lists - one list skews more towards shipfic, one towards genfic. You can write shipfic for the gen prompts or genfic for the shippy prompts.

Did you get anything surprisingly good? Hilarious? Feel free to share in the comments!

Monthly activity round-up post and January masterlist & award banners coming very soon. ^_^;

Character Mad-Libs/Random Numbers! This sort of challenge was popular (and still appears sometimes) as a meme in which one person would make a secret, numbered list of characters and other people would prompt them with scenarios like '1 and 2 adopt a kitten' or '4 and 7's most romantic dinner date!'... of course, if 1 and 2 were Darth Vader and Sauron, or 4 and 7 were Megatron and Harry Potter, things got pretty amusing. ^_^; Some dedicated communities also sprung up using the format we're going to use.

In the comments of this post, list four characters. They do not all need to be from the same fandom or even fandom characters. Your original characters are fine to use, or a mix. There will be both gen and shippy prompt lists; you can pick which set you'd like to do now (or wait and decide after seeing the lists).

Prompts will be up no later than the 4th of February. Each character will have a prompt with every other character (using four characters, that's six prompts total). If you're signing up after the 4th, that's fine. If you accidentally looked at the prompt lists, let me know and I can scramble them for you.


1. Darth Vader
2. Sauron
3. Harry Potter
4. Sherlock Holmes

And then wait patiently and see what silliness (or your new OTP) awaits!

1. There's still time to finish up your tables for January! However, if you don't complete your claim, don't worry. [community profile] monthlysupergo is meant to be low-pressure, so amnesty is permanent. Also, if you want to try your hand at the other tables, claiming is also indefinitely open. That means that if, when April rolls around and that month's challenge isn't your cuppa, you can come back and claim another table if you'd like.

2. If you know of any exchanges, big bangs, fests, challenges, bingos, or otherwise that are currently running, I'm working on putting together an end-of-month event post. Let me know and I can get them listed.

3. The first post of February's challenge will go up shortly!
