Fandom Snowflake Day 2

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

Tiny fandoms:

In which Snape befriends an old grey donkey, and life is gloomy, as usual. Snape and Eeyore gen.

Fanworks other than stories:

[livejournal.com profile] sallymn's icons. They're a mix of the beautiful and the quirky, and they're in a range of fandoms, not necessarily popular fandoms. They're FUN!

Using the original broad definition of "fanworks" I also praise these:

Linda's Blake's 7 frame-capture library. An invaluable resource for Blake's 7 fandom for many years.

[personal profile] watervole being the chairperson behind the Redemption convention since 1999, and still going.

Fanworks with few comments:

This is a bit hard to evaluate, since stories can have few comments on one site and a lot on another, but to make it easy on myself, I'm going to look at my "favourites" list on fanfiction.net and list the stories which have fewer than 5 reviews.
