so, clearly, my good intentions about the [community profile] snowflake_challenge lasted all of one day, but to be fair, I spent a few days out on the island, where I have no internet, and also, day two (rec three challenges, sites or communities) is really hard. I don't really do much in communities, and it has been a really bad year for me and challenges, I think [community profile] no_tags is the only one I've done since last year's holiday challenges.

So! Instead of sitting around putting too much thought into it, I'm going to skip to day 3!

In your own space, post a rec 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. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser-known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom who maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

British comedian RPF is like Canadian webcomic artists in that it is kind of a niche, not of people who enjoy their work, but of people who actively spend time thinking a writing about their romantic and sex lives on the internet. Unlike Canadian webcomic artists, people actually write it.

Because I just watched the Big Fat Quiz of 2013 last night (yeahhhhh, we know how to party), here is the story I came across when i most wanted to pinch Jack Whitehall's cheeks (this happened a lot, tbh): two thousand lightyears from home. It's got a really great Jack Whitehall voice, fun banter, refers nicely to the most recent Big Fat Quiz, and has left me with the desire to start watching A League of Their Own. A+, will probably read again.

Quite a Gentle Way is basically a story where after a Never Mind The Buzzcocks episode, Noel Fielding and David O'Doherty have sex. It's not particularly sexy sex, which I think was the point, but it's totally what I picture the inside of Noel Fielding's head looking like, which is, according to me, even better.

My last rec was supposed to be a funny one, because what is the point of reccing comedian RPF when none of it is exactly laugh-out-loud funny? These are all more odd, off-kilter, thoughtful-funny. I couldn't resist this one, though--Ordinary is beautiful. It's tagged Noel Fielding/Julian Barratt, but it feels more like a character study where the character is a really ambiguous relationship, if that makes any sense. I'd try to say more things about it, but I think it speaks pretty well for itself. The first line: This is the thing about Julian. He's normal. He's a normal bloke - that's his thing. The only abnormal thing about him stands about 5'9 in high heeled silver boots and clings to his arm in public while cackling loudly about ponchos.

More snowflake catchup to come soon, I'm sure! <3

I've been trying to write a post for about a week now--it clearly has not been working.

Some things have happened, both trivial and important. For instance, I am not doing great in school just now, can see myself not doing the things I need to be doing, and can't seem to make myself stop. I'm also watching an awful lot of Never Mind The Buzzcocks and also that massive fucking BBC giant-ass quiz show (that's the official name, right?) on youtube. These facts may or may not be related, I'll leave it up to the audience to read between the lines.

On the negative side, it's encouraging procrastination in a world (mine) already rife with it. On the positive, Noel Fielding is encouraging me not to feel shy about going a little bolder in my fashion choices.

I feel kind of like a regency-era country squire today. Well, except for the jeans. )

Is there any reason I should not be currently channeling my love and enthusiasm into Noel Fielding right now? Sometimes that happens, I find someone who I think is great, and I spend, like, a week watching every interview they have ever given on youtube, totally oblivious, until someone lets me in on something really awful and heinous they've done or said, and I regret thinking they were so great.

ETA: Apparently he's been pretty awful on twitter? Disappointing. :(

A not so cool incident with my mom happened the other night, and I'm still feeling a little shaken up about it, so it's been nice to have someone interesting and odd to watch videos of on the internet till all hours of the night. He reminds me a bit of Kevin Barnes from Of Montreal in interviews.

In conclusion, I'm thinking of being mouse-cat for Halloween. A nice, low stress costume that I can weird most people out by not explaining at all, and just being totally deadpan about the whole thing.

(I'm going to try to do a post with a bit more substance later on, but for right now, this is what I've got.)
