Day 2

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.

Hmm. Like a number of people, this is usually a hard one for me, and I'm always kinda tempted to throw up my hands and ask for something ungrantable. But so far I've always overcome that temptation, and I don't want to ruin my streak, so here goes:

1. suggestions/recs for vidding tutorials. I really want to try my hand at making a fanvid, and have had several ideas sketched out for years, but I've gotten really bogged down at the hunting-for-how-to resources stage. Which is a frustrating stage to get stuck at, because I keep thinking it should be easy to overcome, because I'm fairly sure these resources exist. But it hasn't been. So if you know of a how-to-do-the-thing blog, or tutorial, or list of suggestions, or something, I'd be grateful! (In case it's relevant: I'm a PC person running Windows 8)

2. One of my favorite things are fanworks that mess with the conventions of what that medium is supposed to be: fics that are told in text messages, or computer code, or consist of the same sentence over and over and over; fanart that spills over the edge of the frame, or that interacts with its wider environment, or uses unusual materials; podfic that uses different voices for each character, or the same character at different points in their life, or incorporates white noise, or audio feedback, or shifts between the right and left ears. If you've got a rec, for any fandom or pairing, send it my way please :D

3. Ummmmm I'm trying to keep this a low-stress challenge so I'm defaulting on thing 3. Which I'm decently sure I did last year too. Oh well!
