Title: Juliana and John
Fandom: The Man in the High Castle

Word Count: 4382
Characters: John Smith, Juliana Crain
Warnings: Implied/referenced torture, non-explicit (and very brief) violence

AN: My second Yuletide treat. This story takes place after season 1, but before season 2 was aired, so obviously this takes another path than what really happened. I still think I managed to get their personalities right in ways the second season explores.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner


This is my third Snowflake Challenge. I’ve had a lot of fun doing this previously, so I’m sure I will this year too!

Day 1

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. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Let’s have my three favourites of the last year:

Title: Darkness and Light
Fandom: Versailles
Rating: All ages
Genre: Drama
Word Count: 7072
Characters/pairing: Fabien Marchal/Claudine Masson, Monsieur Bontemps
Warnings: Mentions of blood and violence.
Summary: Fabien Marchal kills for the King. Claudine Masson saves people’s life. They are very different, but both search for truth.
Why I rec it: Versailles was last year’s big fandom surprise for me. I didn’t expected to like t so much, but I did. This is also the first happy (if angsty) love story I have ever written. I think I did a decent job keeping them in character and not making the love story too sappy.

Title: Ghosts
Fandom: The Mummy
Rating: Teen and up
Genre: Drama
Word Count: 5499
Characters/pairing: Evy Carnahan O'Connell/Rick O'Connell, Imhotep/Evy Carnahan O'Connell, Ardeth Bay/Evy Carnahan O'Connell
Warnings: Character death in the prologue.
Summary: Evelyn returns a widow to Egypt after World War II. And the past reaches out to greet her.
Why I rec it: I rewatched the two first movies (the third I pretend doesn’t exist) during the spring and I felt fannish about them all over again. Evy is one of my favourite heroines ever. It starts out sad, has a bit of horror in the middle and end on a happy note.

Title: A Place in the Shadows
Fandom: Penny Dreadful
Rating: All ages
Genre: Drama
Word Count: 1216
Characters/pairing: Vanessa Ives, Sembene
Warnings: None
Summary: Cold in both body and soul, Vanessa finds an unexpected comfort.
Why I rec it: I think this turned out a nice tale of friendship. It also makes me crave sponge cake and tea.

Day 2

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I think, if I must boil it down to just one thing, it would be Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers, which I read when I for the first time when I was fourteen.

It’s a crime novel published in 1935. Sayers got famous writing about Lord Peter Wimsey, gentleman detective, but though he is in this book, the novel is really about Harriet Vane, the woman he is in love with. She gets involved in a mystery at her old college in Oxford, where someone writes poison pen letters and do other kinds of mischief. It’s not a murder mystery, though and what this book really is, is a discussion of women’s role in society. Basically every conversation in this book is about that, and so is the mystery. Being more than 80 years old, some of those discussions are dated, other parts are depressingly still relevant.

When I first read it, a lot of it went over my head, but I still loved it and felt I would understand more eventually. And I did, because I have re-read this book every two or third year for the past 30. But most of all I fell in love with Harriet Vane. I admired her objectivity and her determination to keep to the point and tell the truth. And I admired her struggle to be a person in her own rights and not one to define herself through someone else. She’s certainly not without faults, but I felt then that those qualities were something to strife for. More than anyone else, Harriet Vane has been my role model in life.
