Cet exchange est maintenant terminé. J'ai au final écrit 3 fanfics pour ce challenge, ce qui me surprend beaucoup ! Surtout que les deux dernières fanfics, je les ai écrites en 3 jours. Mais ça m'a beaucoup amusée, même si j'ai eu un gros moment de doute pour la fanfic obligatoire que je devais écrire. A refaire, définitivement.
Trope Bingo :
Ça avance ! Il ne me reste que deux fanfics à écrire, et j'aurais ma ligne. Il faut bien sûr que je corrige les autres fanfics. Je crois que mon compte AO3 aura plus d'activité ce mois-ci que pour cette année entière.
Nano ? Quel nano ?
Je suis actuellement à 4 700 mots ce qui me surprend pas mal. J'ai du retard alors je vais devoir "couper" ce que j'aurais bien voulu écrire, même si je pense terminer aux alentours de 7k, ce qui est incroyable pour une fanfic écrite en deux mois.
Trope Bingo :
J'ai fait quelques changements au niveau du line up. Pour le Free Space, je vais terminer la fic que j'avais commencée pour le round 8 de ce challenge. Il serait temps, vu que je l'ai commencée en janvier de cette année.
Pour le reste, je n'ai pas avancé. J'ai l'espoir de pouvoir terminer les 4 autres fics qui me manquent avant la fin octobre. Sinon, j'aurais la fierté d'avoir écrit et terminé deux fics pour ce challenge (tout en commençant une dizaine :P)
Certains pensent à Halloween, moi je pense au NaNoWriMo. Je suis pressée que le défi commence. Cette année, j'ai décidé de faire la même chose que l'année dernière : je vais terminer un de mes anciens nanos, et s'il me manque des mots ou s'il me reste du temps, je commencerai une nouvelle histoire.
J'ai mis un peu de temps à me décider mais maintenant que c'est fait, je suis assez pressée de pouvoir continuer. :)

Il y a une semaine, j’écrivais que j’étais super motivée pour écrire… la motivation est un peu retombée à plat. J’ai toujours autant d’idées et j’ai envie d’écrire les fics mais je me retrouve dans un état pas très agréable où aller sur le pc me saoule, et quand j’y suis, je glande et je ne fais rien de productif (je ne fais rien de productif en général en ce moment – j’aurais dû appeler mes proprios et faire le contrôle technique de ma voiture il y a 3 semaines).
Hier, je suis repartie sur une vieille technique : j’ai écrit le début de la V3 pour le Crossovering dans mon carnet. Par le passé, écrire avec un stylo et du papier m’a aidé, même si je râle toujours quand il faut taper le texte à l’ordinateur. L’avantage de ce mode, je fais ma relecture lors du passage papier-Word. Un inconvénient, je n’ai plus trop l’habitude d’écrire longtemps à la main.
Comme il ne me reste qu’un mois pour le Crossovering, que j’ai encore recommencé, alors le Trope Bingo se retrouve en arrière-plan. Ce ne me plaît pas des masses parce que j’avais certaines idées que j’aimais beaucoup, et que j’avais déjà commencées.
Si j’avance bien pour le Crossovering (c’est-à-dire si je ne décide pas de commencer une 4ème version de ce texte) cette semaine, je continuerai un peu le Trope Bingo.
Bref, j’espère qu’avec un peu de discipline, les choses vont s’améliorer. Ça serait dommage de retomber dans les vieilles habitudes alors que j’ai plus écrit (et publier) ces derniers mois que les 3 années précédentes.
Je suis donc super contente mais en même temps, je déplore mes décisions.
Je participe actuellement au Trope Bingo round 9 et au Crossovering de cette année. Ce qui veut dire que je suis en train de penser/d'écrire 4 fics en même temps. A savoir que la limite des deux challenges est en octobre.
Il ne me reste qu'un peu plus d'un mois pour le Crossovering, et je commence doucement à paniquer parce que j'ai peur de manquer de temps. Pour Interlude, j'avais dû pas mal raccourcir le récit pour pouvoir publier à temps, et je crains devoir faire la même chose avec le Crossovering.
L'avantage, c'est que j'ai pas mal d'inspiration pour cette fic mais j'ai l'impression qu'elle sera plus longue que prévu. Si je fais tout bien, je devrais peut-être écrire 3, 4k mots, si ce n'est plus. ...
C'est la deuxième fois que je fais ce challenge, et j'adore toujours autant. Ce round est assez particulier puisque les fics que je prévois d'écrire pour mon premier bingo se passent dans le MCU. L'année dernière, j'avais écrit dans d'autres fandoms (comme Arrow verse et Black Sails*, mais cette année, c'est pas pour tout de suite.
Je crois que Spider-Man: Homecoming m'a un peu trop influencée...
En tout cas, je m'amuse. Il faut juste que je m'organise mieux (et éviter de faire le marathon d'une série comme je l'ai fait avec The Defenders.)

This is the first time I'm doing this kind of exchange but I'm super excited to participate.
I want to thank for creating anything for me. I kinda went overboard with my letter but I hope it helps you in some way.
This letter is composed of two parts:
- Likes and DNWs
1. Likes and DNWs
Here is a list of things I enjoy particularly (in general):
- First time meeting
- Identity porn/Identity reveal
- Badass characters ultimately still needing someone (as IC as possible)
- Heart wrenching break ups (not because they want to, because they’re self sacrificing little shits)
- Secret relationships
- A good dose of fluff
- People who shouldn’t like/respect/admire each other, but actually do (I love grudging respect)
- Outsider!POV (and crossovers are perfect for that)
- Crossover pairings
- TROPES, I love tropes
A few things I don't look for but don't mind reading (especially if it’s well written/a small part/necessary):
- Dub-con: if it's because of a spell/curse, pollen, gas, alcohol (like both parties are drunk), etc.
- For this exchange only: fusion. I don't really mind if both fandom actually exist in the universe. ie: Supernatural characters are in the Star Trek universe, side by side with actual Star Trek characters. Otherwise, it just feels like an AU to me.
- Smut. I mean, I don’t mind reading it but I don’t need it. If you do write some, I don’t want a detailed/long scene. :)
Some of my DNWs:
Anything not on this list is fair game.
- PWP, Non-con, gang bang, rape, bestiality, D/s, or any kinky stuff, etc.
- Gender/sex changes
- Character bashing
- Info dump
- I don't really like first-person POV, and don't like at all second-person POV.
For each request, ALL the crossovers are possible.
For example: you can fill request 1 with SPN/Wynonna Earp, SPN/Lucifer, or Wynonna Earp/Lucifer.
You could also make it a three fandom crossover, but I’d rather you didn’t unless you’re confident it’ll work. :)
(Exceptions are obviously MCU, and Arrow-verse.)
Concerning pairing and ships: any pairing is fine with me whether it is gen, het, femslash/slash, canon or fanon, or crossover parings.
I have favourite ships (which are listed in the requests) but you don't have write any of them.
Since I have shows that cross over several requests, here’s a summary of where I’m at (so that we can all avoid pain and spoilers):
( Status )
- Supernatural, Wynonna Earp, Lucifer
- Supernatural, White Collar, Person of Interest, Sons of Anarchy
- Suits, Chuck, White Collar
- Kingsman, James Bond (Craig), Person of Interest, Archer, Sons of Anarchy
- Gilmore Girls, Supernatural
- The Night Shift, Supernatural, Hawai Five-0, Arrow
- Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, Batman (Nolan), Marvel Cinematic Universe
- Black Sails, Timeless
- Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers Academy (Video Games)
- Captain America (Movies), Supernatural
As I said before all of this (prompt, ships) are optional. You don't have to do any of them. If you do, though, I'll love you forever.

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share you love and squee as loud as you want to. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing soDear new fanfic writers,
As Chuck Shurley wisely said, "Writing is hard."
It’s hard, fanfiction is especially hard since you’re only borrowing characters that you don’t own. Canon can be a difficult thing to imitate: characters have unique voices. In a way, we, fanfiction writers, are trying to be in the character’s shoes. We need to understand them in order to write them. That’s why some characters are easier to write for some while others are harder. On a subconscious level, we somehow recognised ourselves in them and for various reasons.
First fanfics are always scary.
I understand the struggles, the insecurity. It's tough putting ourselves out there. It's even tougher to read and accept criticism. Especially about something we took time to create. We spent hours thinking, writing, rewriting, editing for free, because we love it. There’s always a part of us there.
Don’t get discouraged by criticism. Recognise constructed criticism. Accept and use it to improve, but don’t let them tell you what to write and how to write it.
Find people to help you improve. Find the right fandom to start, some are more forgiving than others. Find your rhythm, your style.
It’s ok to imitate, it’s ok to write on the same ideas, it’s ok to get inspired by other works (fanwork or otherwise). Be impartial with your work to recognise the qualities and the flaws.
Do your thing and you’ll be fine.
You’re a writer as soon as you start writing. To improve, you need to read and write. That’s all. There’s nothing else.
I was 15 when I started writing fanfiction in 2007. It has almost been 10 years since I started writing fanfics.
It must seem short for some, long for others. It doesn’t feel that long to me, and I’m always surprised when I realise it has been that long.Last piece of advice: enjoy yourself.
In your own space, write about a moment in fandom that meant a lot to you. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
The first great moment in my fannish world was when I discovered Sims stories (I was 11 or 12). Kidding, it’s not a great moment (even though I loved Sims stories at the time).
No, one of the best moment for me is when I received my first review on my first fanfiction (2007). I was so nervous/happy someone read and commented something I wrote, it was great but scary. I always squee a little when I see people’s comments on my work but it will never be like that first time. It felt like an accomplishment at the time, some kind of recognition.
Another great moment in fandom life was when I joined my first fannish forum, around 2009 (a French forum Newsasia focusing on dramas - Korean, Japanese, and a bit of Taiwanese). I met many wonderful people with whom I shared the love for the same things. I didn’t write any fanfics on dramas but it felt so good to have people liking, reccing dramas and just being so nice to newbies (like me). I even met one of my favourite person in real life through this forum. I stopped going by end of 2010, and it closed in 2012. I was pretty sad when I found out it did: I had a lot of good memories there.
For instance, I started a writing challenge. The rules were simple: you have to include 10 random words (given by the previous player) in your text, and the text had to be at least 100 words long. That’s where I met my friend, we kinda became the only two people playing this game - we created our own crazy universe with our crazy characters. I had so much fun that I kept my “texts”.
Go forth and commit an act of kindness. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it, tell us about it if you’re comfortable doing so.I gave a bit of money to homeless people. So, I guess I did it.
In your own space, post a rec for fannish spaces and resources - comms, challenges, twitters, tumblrs, etc. Tell us about where you hang out. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
I don't really hang out much in fannish things anymore (apart from AO3), so it's a pretty small list.wipbigbang: finish your fanfics with this bang!
I've known the bang for three years, but I only started participating as an artist in 2015. I’ve been meaning to participate as a writer as well but when I tried (last year), I failed spectacularly (dropped out two weeks in). But I did fanart for four writers in 2 rounds (2015 & 2016), and it’s always been a pleasure to work with them.
This bang is also a way for me to use a bit of my Photoshop skills that I don't really as much as I would like.
trope_bingo, that most of you know.
I discovered it very recently (in July or August 2016).
What I love about this bingo are the tropes, obviously, and the fact that it's multifandom. It gave me the right incentive to write again: 5 (short) fanfics written in under 3 months (after 3 years of having difficulty to write). I don't have the same proficiency as before (my writing peak was 2007-2010. From 2011 on, it just trickled). So yeah, it was a good experience.
NaNoWriMo, not really fannish but super useful to me.
For those of you who don’t know NaNoWriMo, the principle is very simple: write 50k words in 30 days.
Originally, the challenge is held each November, but you can also participate to the Camps (April and July) where you can set a more personal goal (instead of the original 50k).
I started participating to NaNoWriMo in 2010 and didn’t stop (except for two years where I failed epically/miserably).
I love NaNoWriMo because:
- it makes me write 50k+ in 30 days (and it’s like my yearly quota for my writing so I don’t feel as guilty not writing the rest of the year)
- the (French) community is awesome
- I’ve written some my original ideas and it feels GREAT (though I didn’t finish any of them) (yet).
Since a couple a years, they also accept fanfictions ;) (and thesis, and scripts, and other stuff).
Yes, the challenge is about quantity, not quality. It can make people uncomfortable (you have to kill your inner editor), some might even despise it, but you could think of this challenge as a way to start good habits such as:
- writing regularly
- writing all the crapping things first in order to reveal the brilliant ideas hidden in your mind. :)
(at least, that's what I think ;))
It’s for people who plan very carefully their stories, have detailed character profiles, do research and have a solid plot (which has to be done before the actual challenge)
It’s for people who didn’t plan anything, have one or two characters, thought of a few scenes they want to write, and write as they go (which is perfectly find to do that during the challenge).
Also, it’s very satisfying.
In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
If you didn't know, I love crossovers.
There is something in crossovers that attracts me. I don't really understand my utter love for them. I just love seeing my favourite charaters in another environment. How would they react if they meet this other character? Or, these two have really similar experiences, it'd great if they could talk, share, and support each other. Or even, juste how these characters fare if they stumble in that particular world/universe/period.
My faves just talking basically (I have some crossover ships too...).
I juste find it really interesting. And I've been lucky that some of my tv shows shot crossover episodes, it just made me so happy.
For the same reasons, I love time/dimensional travel.
(ok, I just realized most of them are on ff.net. Sorry.)

And a few more... :)
In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
Stony fans should know her, but if you don't (and if you like Stony), go see what she does!
I've discovered ann2who from one of her stony fanvid on youtube. I just loved how she edited and was really happy to see she had written a fanfic reflecting her fanvid. Her current work is the Say When verse, where she's rewrites MCU movies with a Stony twist, and it's delicious.
I've been slacking on reading/commenting her work though.
In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
- I love my eyes, especially their colours. I've the same eye colour as my mother and grandmother.
- I like my stubborness, as in I resist pretty well to peer pressure, especially when it's about something I don't like.
- I like my "artistic" ways (though I loathe my lazyness ;))
- I love my curiosity in many things. Not maths, though. Definitely not.
- I like that I could reduce my shyness to an ok thing.
- I like that I can function pretty well even in an unknown environment (with a lot of nervousness but still).
Send feedback to two fannish people — they can be anyone you want: a writer who’s made you happy, a moderator of your favorite exchange (not us!), a fanartist you avidly follow… There are so many possibilities. Just let someone know you appreciate their work.
I did. It reminded me that I know people who need encouragement!
In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
( Here :) )
In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.
I'll think about it later.
- Crossovers: I love crossovers. It's my thing. I especially love Supernatural crossovers (including but not limited to: crossovers with POI, Criminal Minds, MCU, and Merlin). I think I've read most the crossovers on AO3/ff.net.
- Beta: as you might have guessed, English isn't my first language so when I write fanfics in English, I can be pretty vague, make syntax, vocabulary and grammar mistakes. I'm better than when I started but my writing still needs improving (my writing also needs improving in French tbh). So really, I wouldn't say no (a) beta/s. Granted you like the fandoms I write in or ships I like. I don't want to bother you with stuff you don't watch/like.
- Fan: Maybe someone to talk to about my fannish things? In the end, I don't know a lot of people who actually watch the stuff I watch, except for MCU and Supernatural. Just so you know when I'm pretty ok when it comes to shows/movies, I don't really read into subtext (because sometimes there is just no subtext) but I really don't mind headcanon or fanon stuff (I have so many fanon ideas that it would be hyprocritical of me say something). :)
Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"
Friending Meme Post
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.

And many, many more. I'm forgetting some but that's it for now. (/tries to stop looking through her delicious account)
