After being sick (better but still on the mend) I'm horribly behind on the snowflake challenge. Today I'm supposed to:
In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.
I'm not against this on principle or anything, but it does seem a bit artificial to ask people to do it at a certain time. It's just not my style, somehow. Plus, I already know I rock. (Kidding, kidding...) So I'm going to shake it up a bit. Rather than telling me how awesome I am, why don't you pick someone else, either a mutual friend or a complete stranger. Tell me why they're awesome and give me a story or fanart of theirs that I should really be familiar with. Then if you know them and feel comfortable, drop them a note on their blog to tell them they're loved and have them come check out what you said.
Bonus points if it's a fandom I'm interested in but less familiar with (Sherlock, House, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Hunger Games, etc.) and if you recommend something, that it's the kind of story I tend to like: reasonable length to read in a single sitting, character-driven, etc. But really, this isn't about me. Pay it forward.
