I've been away doing family things and it was depressing - all the old folk are getting older and falling apart on me, and I'm worried about all of them, so I'm doing this instead. I'm also behind on Inktober and all sorts of other fun things, maybe I'll get back on track tomorrow.

Ok, by the time I post this it will be more than a day late for Fanfic Appreciation Day, but I don't think that really matters - if a fic is good it's not going to lose its lustre if I rec it late!

frozen_delight started this and I stole it from anactoria. Got to say, making a rec post against these criteria is HARD! Picking just one for each category? Nigh on impossible. Regardless, here's the list, followed by my recs.
Share and play...
1. an old fic (posted at least three years ago)
2. a new fic (posted within the last six months)
3. a fic you wish had gotten more attention (less than 50 kudos on AO3 or less than 30 comments on LJ)
4. a genfic
5. a fic focused on a female character
6. a fic which made you see a character in a new light
7. a fic which made you ship something
8. a fic which inspired you to write
9. a fic with a particularly memorable line
10. ??? (Excited to see what categories you come up with!)

Edited to add the comment meme link which I forgot yesterday :D

Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs.
Post the poem that results.
The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.

This is my word

Another stop sign, another headlight
I’m staring at tears on the pages.
Drowning in you, asking nothing, aching,
If I said I was sorry would you forget the things I’ve done?

No, you don't have to wear your best fake smile
The branches have traded their leaves for white sleeves
I’ve waited a hundred years
I’ve been left out alone like a damn criminal.

Winding your way down on Baker Street
Oh quiet down, I've had enough
Drifting apart, getting harder to hold you
I’ll take you with me over the water,

Killed by drones
Oh I think I landed in a world I hadn’t seen.

If you're not the one for me,
Guess it's true, I'm not good at a one-night stand.
I've got a really bad disease
Put your coat on, this city trembles.

I will leave my heart at the door
Sleepless nights and endless days.

777 meme

My inner lemming has surfaced again... thanks de_nugis!

1. Go to page 7 (or 77) of your current WIP.
2. Go to line 7

3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written.

WIP 1: my novel that is kicking my bum at the moment, trying to edit the bugger

Jake still held tightly onto his father’s hand even though he could feel Jason’s own grip had loosened, and he saw that his Dad’s eyes had closed. Jake worked an arm round underneath his father’s head, cradling him gently, still whispering encouraging words about getting him out, getting him to hospital, how they’d go to see Nathan in Ames when they were fit again. He refused to let go, even when he could no longer pretend Jason was still breathing, even after the rescue workers had freed the rest of Jason’s body and were trying to get him into a body bag and onto a stretcher. They gave up the effort when they found they couldn’t prise Jake away from the dead man, and perforce allowed him to ride in the ambulance to Allegheny General.

WIP 2: A J2 fic I haven't written anything new on for four years! OMG!

“Whoa! That was you singing that song?” Instead of the anticipated smack down, the tall guy seemed animated by the revelation.  “I never knew you could sing as well as play, and what was that song anyway? It was amazing!  Can you play keyboards as well as piano?  I bet you are an awesome keyboard player, just what we need, and we could maybe even learn that song you were playing in time for next week’s performance too…”

Jensen could see that the tall guy was wound up again and liable to talk incessantly, and it was all too much.  The thought of trying out this band idea, this 90 mile a minute guy, the sheer volume of his enthusiasm – it was all overwhelming. Jensen was used to quiet space and order, and this was a level of chaos all wrapped up in a handsome body that could consume him if he wasn’t careful.  Almost involuntarily his hand came up and rested on the tall guy’s firmly muscled chest in an attempt to stem the flood.

Currently I can't remember what I called my WIPs that are more current than that, which is great - so I can't given you extracts from my J2 in a space zoo, or Sam and Dean space AU. Doh. Mind you I'm not sure any of those WIPs are seven pages long yet.

Day 12
What makes you fannish? And by that we mean, what is it about a tv show/movie/book/band/podcast/etc that takes you from, "Yeah, I like that," to "I need MOAR!!!" Is it a character? A plotline? The pretty? Subtext that’s just screaming to be acknowledged? In your own space, tell us what it is that gets you to cross that line into fandom.
