Snowflake Challenge - Day 4

Day 4...

Day 4

In your own space, create a fannish wishlist. No limits on size or type of fanwork; just tell us what you’d like to see. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. And if you grant a wish, do the same thing!

I didn't really understand what they were asking, so here's the rest of the challenge text: "Would you like a story for a little fandom that’s got no traction? Would you like a trope written for a popular one? Maybe you have an amazing idea for a set of song lyrics but no way of setting them to music. Maybe there’s a piece of fanart you’re craving, or you wish you had icons for your favorite show. Maybe you want someone to talk about a book with. Maybe it’s something vaguer; maybe you’d like recommendations for new canons to try, or you’d like people to take a look at your fanworks and let you know what they think. Maybe you’d like to make more friends here, or on another platform; maybe you’d like an inbox to squee into or comment fic."

Okay, that made more sense. I really couldn't think of much, so here are my thoughts.

  • Concert band arrangements of music from Doctor Who. I really would love to perform Murray Gold's music. This is difficult to find. There are arrangements for a very few pieces - the theme, I Am the Doctor, a couple more - and I have them on order (so that when I get to meet Murray Gold at Gallifrey One next month, I can ask him to autograph the score for I Am the Doctor), but not much more. There are some arrangements on musescore.org, but they're either for small ensemble or orchestra.
  • I'd love any non-romantic fanfiction for The Reckoners. I don't care about David and Megan. I want to see the Reckoners in action, taking down Epics! (Yes, yes, I've been meaning to write this myself.)

Um. That's it. That's all I can think of. I really don't have any requests for fanwork or fandom, or anything I'd like to do, other than write more. I guess my attitude toward fandom is something I do, not something I want, if that makes any sense?

Haha, my bad on the phrasing! My bad.

I hope someone fulfills that concert arrangement wish; I don't really consume DW fanworks but I would consume the shit out of a recording of something like that.

No problem with the phrasing - it was more of not really getting the concept because I don't normally think about what I'd like the fandom to produce. :)

In Montreal, there's the Orchestre a Vents de Musiques de Films - a fan orchestra that plays music from films and TV. (Actually, they're a wind ensemble - I think they don't have strings.) They arrange all their own music and put on concerts. I got to see them at the Montreal Comicon this past year - they did concerts for DW, HP, and Star Wars. I would so join an orchestra/band like that in my hometown.

That sounds amazing. I'm not super geeky about scores in the sense that most of my favorites come from films that aren't necessarily also faves, but many of my most played songs are like, things from The Holiday score by Hans Zimmer or the No Reservations score by Mark Isham (which was actually from Life as a House IIRC).
