Fandom Snowflake Challenge: Day 4

In your own space, create a fannish wishlist. No limits on size or type of fanwork; just tell us what you’d like to see.

This is one of those things where I actually debated answering since I'm kind of like "I don't want to be a bother" because, while I do have many things I wish to see among fandom, I also don't want to seem too demanding or selfish or anything like that. But since this is a challenge, I figured that I should just list the few things I wish to see more of in fandom no matter how attainable or not it is.

My Fannish Wishlist

** More fandom friending memes. One of the best things about fandom is making friends with similar fannish interests, but sadly it seems that friending memes designed specifically for fandom have either dwindled or taken over by non-fandom people which makes it harder to find more individuals to get to know over squeeing about fannish things. I know that the fandom side of LJ has quieted down significantly over recent years, but there are still a lot of fandom people out there and we kind of need more fandom-specific friending memes to find each other.

** Fandom discussions. I love talking about a fandom that I have either recently discovered or revisited, and while individual fandom communities are few and far between that doesn't mean we can't stop having discussions in our own journals. Whether it's just for your flist or inviting other people for a mere discussion, I just want more conversation happening on the fandom end of things. I miss connecting with people that way, of having endless comment threads squeeing and sharing that excitement of talking about mutual fannish interests.

** More fandom icons with varying styles and techniques. I am not an iconmaker so this may seem a bit demanding on my end, but one of the things I've noticed in recent years is how fandom icons in general have basically become more or less one type of style. Back when fandom dominated the LJ space there were a bunch of iconmakers who had a lot of variety of styles in creating their icons, all which evolved overtime but still there was a variety to choose from. These days, I feel like there's a limited amount mostly due to how many fandom iconmakers are still active here. I know that beggars can't be choosers and I feel horrible for even asking this, but I personally would prefer more similar icons like the one I am currently using or most what you see in my userpics; cropping especially of close-up shots, focusing on negative space, lighting/coloring and sharpening of an image, etc. Again, I am not an iconmaker (though I wish, I really want to make icons for myself but idek how or where to start) and I deeply appreciate and applaud the amount of talent and hard work those who do make icons, I just wish there was more variety instead of what I've been seeing lately, that's all.

** More icon requests for iconmakers. Self-explanatory.

** And to coincide with that, icons of the following characters/fandoms: Percival Graves (Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them), Two and Five (Dark Matter), Wynonna Earp (Wynonna Earp), Daisy Johnson (Agents of SHIELD), Faith Lehane (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Max Guevara (Dark Angel), Six, Athena, Boomer, and Kendra Shaw (Battlestar Galactica), Zoe Graystone, Lacey Rand, and Tamara Adama (Caprica), Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Julie Mao, Drummer and Bobbie Draper (The Expanse); Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Legend of the Seeker. These are just on the top of my head, since you know I have so many fandoms, past and present, and ever since Photobucket decided to do what it did, finding icons for them has become extremely difficult and near impossible these days. Also, I am awkward when it comes to approaching the existing iconmakers out there requesting for things.

** Percival Graves genfic. I love reading headcanons that fandom has come up with for his character, I have made some myself. But when it comes to fanfiction there are so few out that focus entirely on his character without any shipping elements. I would love more fanfic exploring his character, him dealing with the aftermath of everything, and just kind of going in the route of the headcanons I've seen but more in depth.
