In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing.

Playing the catchup game again, but this one is extra fun, because I love talking about my friends and all of the ways that they're great. I'm going to talk about [personal profile] la_dissonance, partially because she's on my mind since we hung out the other day, but mostly just because she's awesome :)

Probably most people who read Empires fic already know her work, because she's the one who wrote that great X-Men crossover for big bang a few years ago, and since she writes a lot of Empires, maybe that means I should be reccing someone else, but the thing is, [personal profile] la_dissonance is one of those writers I'd recommend even to people who are entirely uninvolved in any of the same fandoms, because as much as fandom is about loving the same things as other people, I think it's just as much if not more about telling stories, and she tells really great stories.

She doesn't shy away from gen fic, which I love--pairing fic is great, but I tend more towards obsessing over a specific person than an OTP, and I love really solid gen fic. She's also always writing something I'm not expecting, the kind of thing where you don't even know you want the story to exist until you're reading it. The moral of the story is that if you have ever had even a passing interest in bandom, or are into reading stories that are awesome whether they're your fandom or not, you should probably check her out.

So I'm planning on doing 6 and 7 after I do some laundry and some dishes tonight (we'll see how that goes) but I thought I'd cheat on the rules I have set for myself and skip forward to tonight's, partly as a way of feeling less behind, and partly because it sounds kind of nice right now. So!

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are.

Um, here's a love meme? The masterpost for everyone doing the snowflake challenge is here if you're curious, or you feel like sharing some more love. I haven't participated in one of these in a while because I remember them being pretty nerve-wracking, but it's such a sweet idea, so here I am again.
