Snowflake Challenge Day 10

In your own space, post a rec for fannish and/or creative resources and spaces. Tell us where you go to dig up canon facts for your fandom, or where you get all the juicy details about your favorite ship. Where do you like to hang out and squee like a squeeing thing?

It's not surprising that I love a good rec, so rec sites are a must for me. [livejournal.com profile] su_herald is a good place to start and I really appreciate how much work the mods put in keeping things going. [livejournal.com profile] buffyversetop5 is also terrific, both for its classic recs season around Halloween, and for recs from the previous year that happens in January (which of course means it's on at the moment, so check it out and contribute your recs). And again, the mods work really hard keeping this great community going. And one of those mods - [livejournal.com profile] petzipellepingo has been posting regular recs on her own LJ under the wonderful title of More links than a bag of sausages!, a title that always makes me giggle.

As a reccer with my own ridiculously large rec lists, I am conscious that I need to revisit them regularly to make sure the links are up to date. Websites disappear and people leave fandom, so one resource that's invaluable to me is The Wayback Machine. I've been able to 'rescue' links to a lot of old fic that I've recced by using it.

As for writing, I use BuffyGuide.com to look up episode details and Google images to check on other stuff. And of course, I bend [livejournal.com profile] thismaz's ear - it's very useful having a beta who knows her canon inside out.

I'm sure there are lots more, but those are the ones that come to mind on a Sunday morning.

For day 2 of this year's Snowflake Challenge we had to ask for something we would really like and I asked for some art for my Xander angst fest Words To Live By.

The very lovely [livejournal.com profile] rbfvid made me a super piece of art, and I just wanted to thank her for answering my request so creatively. The shiny is right here under the cut
Here be pretties )
