For akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge.

Day 2

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. 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 and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

Remember that by fanwork, we are talking about: all forms of creativity. From meta to fic writing to picspamming to hosting a comment-fic-meme to running a challenge, to vidding and podficcing and reccing and pretty much anything you can think of. Crafts, knitted items, repurposed rubber duckies, finger puppets. Pimping posts. Guides to timelines, tattoos, quotes, nit-picky canon guides, episode recaps, synopses, beta work. If you think it's creative, then it definitely fits under the heading "fanwork."

transfixeddream's picspam of laughing boys made me very happy. Some fannish, some not, some slashy, some not, but all very, very joyous! NSFW.

Five Nail Polishes (616 words) by faviconToft
Fandom: Nail Polish (industry)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Original Trans Character
Summary: Five drabbles for five nail polishes.
I already recc'd this once for Yuletide, but I think it deserves it's own separate mention here. I know, Nail Polish (industry) isn't your fandom. It's not my fandom. It's noone's fandom! Go read this anyway. I've always beena huge fan of well-written drabbles, and these five are exceptional. Beautiful and empowering.

Which in Your Case You Have Not Got (8991 words) by faviconDira Sudis
Fandom: Generation Kill, A Companion to Wolves - Elizabeth Bear & Sarah Monette
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Evan Wright, Brad Colbert, Ray Person, James Trombley, Nate Fick, Tony Espera, Rudy Reyes, Pappy Patrick
Summary: Every Marine a Wolfbrother. A conversation about shitting leads to Evan learning a lot about how Second Platoon really works.
This is the first in a series where Dira takes the 'wolf-brother' concept from the book 'A Companion to Wolves' and updates it to the Iraq war by writing a fusion with Generation Kill. And as much as I liked both original sources, this fanfic is SO MUCH BETTER. Enjoy!
