Snowflake Challenge - Day 3

Here's the next one.

Day 3

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

This one is actually difficult for me, because I don't seek out fanwork. I used to look for fanfiction but I got tired of trying to find the few in my favored genres. I used to browse on deviantArt for fanart, but there's way too much out there for me to keep up with. So, here are three that I've thought of recently.

Fifty Years in Time and Space by Richard Swarbrick

This came out in 2013, for the 50th, and it's one of my favorite tributes to Doctor Who and its long history.

Smoke and Memories by romanajo123/human_nature

Have I ever mentioned how much I love the JNT Doctors? Ten still holds my number one spot, and I swear Five is my number two, but Six and Seven constantly try to knock him out of that. Romanajo123 writes primarily for that block of Doctors, and her work is wonderful. She understands the feel of the show from that era and expresses it well, taking careful time and consideration to recreate the atmosphere and themes. This is a recent work of hers, painting a gorgeous picture of future Nyssa and her memories.

The Twelve Doctors Play Dance Dance Revolution by JohannesVIII

JohannesVIII is by far my favorite DW fan artist. I love her style, and she has an appreciation and understanding of both the classic and modern show that shines through her work. I chose this particular work because not only do you get to see how she depicts the different Doctors and companions in her unique style, but the comic is also hilarious. Be sure to check the backgrounds for humorous details and easter eggs.

Oh wow...I never expected anyone to rec my work! This was nice to come home to. *blushes* And that comic is great! JohannesVIII's art is awesome! (I follow her blog)

You are very welcome! Your work definitely deserves more recs and kudos. I would have gone back to look for a couple more to mention, but I was at work and didn't have the time to really go searching. :)

:D Well you’ve officially motivated me.

Loved it-

The Doctors DDR thing is hilarious.

DeviantArt is really not set up to be a text platform. It's all right for single self-contained pieces like one-shots or poetry, but woe betide anyone who wants to post or read a long multichaptered fic, or a connected series of such.

Ugh, I hate dA for fiction. I have a paid account, so I can make folders in my gallery and I can group all of the chapters of a fic that way at least. And then, to make it easier to navigate, I put links in every chapter to the previous chapter, next chapter, and the master post (the table of contents). It's a lot of work.

And then... For the reader it's not great because even if I do provide links back and forth, it doesn't feel like reading because of the page presentation and all of the excess stuff on the sides. I do the same thing for fics here on LJ, but at least, clicking from chapter to chapter feels good because the layout isn't distracting from the fic.

But I continue to post there for exposure, and my other non-prose fanworks (there aren't many) are grouped there as well, so that's a good thing at least.
