Snowflake Challenge Days 13 & 14



Challenge #13: In your own space, create a fanwork.

I would love to participate in this challenge, but I legitimately do not have the time nor headspace to create something at the moment. BUT, what I do have are a handful of non-HP multi-fandom recs that I've been meaning to post, and I figure creating a reclist is definitely a fanwork of a type, so here are some random recs!

Challenge #14: Share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (Or a few!) What makes it particularly appealing for you? What do you like in fanworks featuring that trope?

Your girl LOVES a trope, let me tell you, and I could honestly wax poetic about any number of tropes, but one of my absolutely favorite ~category~ of tropes, if you will, is forced proximity.

I love this one because it has so much sub-tropes that fall within its larger umbrella (bonding!fic, shared bed, forced/arranged marriage, working together, roommates, cuddling for warmth, trapped on an island, etc.) but basically I just love when two characters are smushed together (generally not entirely happily or voluntarily) and then FEELINGS HAPPEN. I'm not a fan of every single sub-trope for all of my pairings or fandoms (for example, though I loved forced/arranged marriage fics, I don't like them at all for Harry/Draco) which I why I tend to say more generally that I loved forced proximity because there is always at least one sub-trope within that category that I love for any given pairing.
