Day 12

What makes you fannish? And by that we mean, what is it about a tv show/movie/book/band/podcast/etc that takes you from, "Yeah, I like that," to "I need MOAR!!!" Is it a character? A plotline? The pretty? Subtext that’s just screaming to be acknowledged?

In your own space, tell us what it is that gets you to cross that line into fandom.

It is characters that make me fannish for the most part.  It usually happens that the characters I fall in love with are secondary characters and so they don't get featured as fully as the main characters do -- this leads to me being unsatisfied because there aren't enough "stories" for me to enjoy that involve my favorites.  The only solution is to write those situations and stories myself!  In addition, I seem to interpret the motives and intentions of characters differently than others at times, and writing to explain how I see and understand a character is only natural.  I also enjoy "what if" stories and AU, which works well for me when the characters I adore are the ones who exit the original tale early by dying.  ;-)

So, it looks like it's been a little over a year since I posted a blog entry. Good thing my word for 2016 is "consistent" -- maybe it will help me be more consistent in updating! I'm mulling a catch-up post that will update any readers I have left on what my year was like in 2015, but that will be for later in the week -- or next week, after I decide what's important to share and what isn't!

For now, to get the ball rolling, I want to share some responses to the [community profile] snowflake_challenge , a fannish challenge that is taking place for the first few weeks of January. In spite of my intentions to be more consistent this year, I fell behind in posting my responses to the challenge almost immediately! But no matter -- this is a fun challenge, with no pressure, so I'm going to go ahead and share what I share and go from there!

That's probably enough for one post!  The challenge continues for a few more days, so I may be adding to some of my fannish thoughts this week.  Until then, thanks for reading and have a great day today!
