7. Something you're just really proud of

I probably should pick a vid (hee... I do have some I'm proud of!) but I'm going to go with something that I am really proud to be part of.

Just over three years ago I proposed the idea of having a community where hurt!Sam and hurt!Jared fics could be archived. The response and support was amazing. From that spn_littlebro was born. A community that recs and archives fan works that feature hurt!Sam or hurt!Jared ('cause some of us a suckers for that stuff! *g*).

This community only exists because of all the people involved in getting it there. From the initial brainstorming sessions to the wonderful mods who have contributed to it over the years.

There are now over 1000 fics listed on the site. It has 500 members and is watched by over 600 people. We have a Delicious account, community and tumblr. There's also a monthly newsletter reccing all the awesome stuff fans make. So much of this is due to cherry916, harrigan and el1ie who have been instrumental in setting it up and continue to help it all run so smoothly. We've had many wonderful mods over the years helping out. Currently ayane42,jessm78 and reggie11 are helping search out all the awesome fan works to share with members and help keep it ticking over.

So yeah. Something that started as a way of having a place to go so I could find all the fics I wanted to read has ended up being a place that I consider an online home. A place I love and a place I love being part of. It's also something I will look back on and know that I will be proud that it exists. *wipes a tear* (haha! I think I got emotional there for a moment...must be the wine..!)

The end! That was a fun meme. :)
