In your own space, talk about why you are doing the Fandom Snowflake Challenge? What drew you to it as a participant? What do you hope to accomplish by doing these challenges?

I've never attempted a challenge before. We'll I've tried NaNo and GYWO, but what drew me to this challenge was that it would make me think about why fandom is such an important part of my life. I love the idea that this huge group of folks is going to be talking about thier own unique fandom  experiences and what they love and squee about. I hope to learn new things. I'm already behind, but that's okay.

Hi V,

Congratulations on your job! I saw your post on tumblr.

What is the Snowflake Challenge? I'm feeling a bit sad fandom wise - for the Sherlock fandom and it's poor manners, absolutisms, and loss of fan diversity. I'd join another fandom, but my obsessions don't seem to work that way. It picks me and lets me go on its own timetable. Anyway...Happy New Year and hugs!

Thank you! I'm sooo insanely happy about the job, the details get better every day!

Oh and the snowflake challenge! Check this out Ruth! You might want to give it a try. And I do hear you about the state of the fandom. It really isn't what it was and that is sad for me. It's been steadily fading since Season 3 and now, yeah it's as you say. I'm still in it for the cool folks like yourself and the fic writers who I still hang out with online. But I've moved on (in my heart) to a new fandom (more like I was struck over the head with a new fandom). I agree with you, you can't choose fandoms/obsessions, they pick you! Thankfully I've found one (Captain America) <-- still seems very odd to me... that inspires me to write and read new fic and squee :-)

Happy New Year and hugs to you! (Have you looked at the Check Please! fandom?) Emma Grant and a few Sherlock folks are writing for it. That and Hannibal...

xoxo V
