 In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing.


I'm going to talk about three: One writer, one podficcer, one artist.

WRITER: thehoyden

I feel like every time I finish a hockey fic and go "holy crap, that was awesome", it was written by thehoyden. In fact, one of the first-- and one of my favorite-- hockey fics I ever read was by thehoyden, and I still insist it's one of the best fics in any fandom out there. That one is:

Tour de Force, aka the secret writer Kaner fic.  It's written from Kaner's perspective, as he decides to try to write a novel-- in secret-- and deals with the outcome of that particular decision. Funny, clever, perfectly spot-on in-character, fantastic sexual/romantic tension, and great sex scenes.

Another favorite is Right on the Limits, aka the sentinel/guide Sid/Geno fic. This one is arguably my favorite hockey fic, even more so than Tour de Force, simply because I love sentinel/guide fic so very very much. Again, perfectly in-character, and pulls in a ton of real-life details (like the fact that Sid's eye-tracking is off the charts in real life, so it makes total sense that he'd be a sentinel) that make the fic that much more perfect. The Geno in this fic is my favorite Geno in fandom, too. (Plus, again with the great sex scenes.)

thehoyden's newest hockey fic is Game Plan, which launched itself to the top of my favorites list within about a paragraph of reading it. It's a Sid/Geno breakfast-based seduction fic. Yet another clever, funny story, with just the right amount of (seriously hot) sex scenes. thehoyden's Sid is always so perfectly balanced between endearing and annoying, frustrating and cutely quirky, and Geno half helps, half herds him to behave like a normal human being. 


PODFICCER: Knight_Tracer

Knight_Tracer is kind of podfic yoda, for me. She's my hero. She's crazy prolific, has a fantastic voice and presence for podfic, and has great audio quality. Plus, she gets Geno's voice just right without trying too hard at an accent. Here are a few of my favorite podfics she's done:

Fastening One Heart to Every Falling Thing (yes, more Sid/Geno, they're my OTP, shut up)

A Californian Werewolf in New York (the best Teen Wolf AU out there, and it's a fanfic/podfic collab with Knight_Tracer!)

All Talk (a great test of a podficcer-- it's phone sex, and LOTS of it, and it's super, super hot)

ARTIST: videntefernandez

The. Best. Night Vale artist. Ever. videntefernandez is responsible for 90% of my WTNV headcannons. Here's a small selection:

Day One

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. 


Here's the thing, friends. I got into fandom this past May. I have literally seven fanworks. Total. So there's not much to choose from, but here are my top three-- one from each medium I participate in.


Podfic:  This is the category I have the most of, with five posted podfics. I love four of the five (the last one was tough for me), but my favorite is probably Whether I'm In Your Arms or I'm At Your Feet, originally written by Rest. 

This is my favorite of my podfics for several reasons. It's got a lot of emotional variety, and I felt like I did a pretty good job with the dialogue in the most emotional parts. It's also the first fic I recorded with my beloved Blue Snowball microphone, so I felt like the audio quality was much, much better than I'd previously managed. It's just a great fic, though-- by far my favorite BDSM AU, that makes the submissive's role look not only beautiful but fulfilling for the submissive themself, and shows both roles in a non-sexual light. The dominants aren't all ravening cruel beasts, either, or strict overbearing assholes, and Jonny comes off as both dominant and incredibly kind and loving.


Fanfic: I've only posted one fanfiction, so far, so my rec here has to be Always Been Yours. It's a secret virgin trope PWP fic, Kaner/Tazer, but I had a lot of fun writing it and I think it manages to be both funny and hot. There are things I'd change about it now, but I still like it and I'll always have a soft spot for it since it was my first. (I have two more in the works, but they're not close to posting yet. I'm a VERY slow writer.)


Fanart: I've only done one fanart, ever, and I don't think that much of it, honestly, but I spent a lot of time on it and it's the first piece of art I've ever done completely digitally. It was inspired by the song Angels, by Owl City; specifically, the lyrics "The indications revealed / That few of us realize life is quite surreal / So if you’re dying to see / I guarantee there are angels around your vicinity". This just screamed CARLOS THE SCIENTIST to me, so I drew this. There are a lot of things I'm not thrilled with-- the background, the coloring, the texture of the bark-- but I think for a first digital work (and second finished drawing in at least five years) it's pretty decent.
