Fandom snowflake challenge - Day 1 - self-reccing!

Fanworks I am proud of creating:

  • EVP: Supernatural Fic Podcast
    I put this together back in 2006, organising and editing together an issue every fortnight for a handful of months. In hindsight, whoa. (I was writing a thesis, running a wiki, vidding and writing at the same time.) That was fun. Wish I had the energy to do something like that again!

  • SupernaturalWiki
    While [personal profile] missyjack basically runs this now, I still host it and am so proud of how far it's come since I set it up. The wiki gets over 300K visitors per month, at about a 50/50 split of new and regular visitors, and has over 2000 articles. And no wank! It's a pretty damn awesome community and site.

  • Firefly fic: Stroke of Luck
    I still love this epic Jayne/Simon AU I wrote. In hindsight, I cringe a bit that I didn't even have it beta read, but I still have a great fondness for and proudness of it.

  • Merlin fic: Along a Wandering Wind
    The longest thing I've every written, and I think I worked harder on this fic than any other I've ever written. At this point in time, it's definitely my favourite of all my fanworks.

  • Torchwood fic: We Happy Few
    The second-longest thing I've written, that also had a lot of hard work go into it. It was so satisfying to write this - the culmination of a million shit-talking story-telling conversations had with friends about the adorable ridiculousness of team Torchwood.

  • Torchwood/pulp novel mashup fanart
    I love making fanart, I don't do enough of it. These still make me so happy to look at, and make me pine for doing more art like this.

(FYI: Day 1 Snowflake Challenge)

3.9 million visitors to the wiki in 2011. Not many fanworks get that! :D

Hi - we met at a Perth slashcon a few years ago when I gave you and Cathy a lift to Fairbridge.

I'm a late convert to Supernatural and have been loving the Wiki. What an amazing project!

I've found the site performance pretty bad lately. I understand there have been Dreamhost issues, but please let me / the masses out there know if there's anything we can do to help with getting things back up and running better. It's sad to have such a great site not be accessible so much of the time.

Congratulations on setting up such an enormous and long-lived site!

Also, I meant to say, it's especially impressive that you continue to put time into the Wiki when you're no longer involved with the fandom! I'd say that's pretty rare.
