TRADITION!

(Link to Fiddler.)

I've done the snowflake challenge for a couple years running now and I like it. I like the way it starts off a new year, when things feel sort of fresh and full of possibility. I am totally cynical about everything, but I love how people are at the start of the new year, how in the early hours of the morning in a city - where often people make it a policy to ignore everyone as much as possible - people will wish strangers happy (I think that's great) and I love that sort of boundless optimism that can show up at the beginning of the year - I can do things! This is easy! I could make a post every day and so on. Things are shiny and new and optimistic in the new year and I feel like [community profile] snowflake_challenge is a really good match for that, and it had that attitude even before it adopted this time slot. It's incredibly friendly and kind of affirming and the mods are fabulous each year. It's a really lovely time.

I enjoy starting off my fannish year with this challenge; it makes me happy. I discovered yesterday that I had not checked my reading list for well over a week; I've been sort of failing at dreamwidth/fannish activity/communication for a while, so, the thing where the snowflake challenge means structured posting is good for me this year - even if/when I opt out of some challenges that's still better than I've been doing, and so in that vein, and in that vein of wild optimism/delusion*, I further challenge myself, to the old December meme from a few years ago - shifted to January and cut in half.

(*I do actually think it'll be fine.)

Pick a date below and give me a topic you want me to discuss. You can request multiple topics (as long as they’re on different days — one topic per day!).

Heads Up: I tend not to link a lot of RL information to my fannish identity, so, if you request something to do with that I might not feel comfortable writing about that and ask if there's something else you're interested in - or I might be fine. Depends. (Sorry that's a bit vague.)
