The Days:
1. Something old
2. Something new - talk about a new fanwork of yours!
3. Something you made for someone else
4. Something you made just for yourself
5. Something for a large fandom/pairing/character.
6. Something for a small fandom/pairing/character
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, ff.net 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. :)

**hands you a tissue**

It's been an honour and a pleasure and a whole lot of fun. :)

*takes tissue and dabs eye*

I'm currently coding the newsletter (and holy hell! that's some freakin' coding! I can understand why harrigan needed a break!) and I'm just amazed by it all really. And I remember back when it started and you made those awesome pimping graphics. :D *hearts*

Oh *eek* GOOD LUCK! - HTML coding completely fries my brain, but you know where I am if you need anything - and yes, harrigan has been doing a stellar job so far, but so will you hon, we'll get it there!

*hugs*

I adore spn_littlebro! It's not only a very useful tool to find fics/art/fandom works, but to celebrate them to.

So yeah, you should be proud, as should everyone involved! You all rock. Take care, :)

Yay! I'm glad you find it useful. :))

I think your contributions to fandom have been stellar and awesome. I'm so glad that you feel a measure of pride for some of that because you totally should!

Aw. And I never realised this one was down to you. Shakes your hand with undue solemnity.

Aww thank you hon :) I've enjoyed helping out with the site. I know I'd fallen behind a bit thanks to the family drama, but I've caught up and I just love being a part of this!

You have every right to be proud of spn_littlebro. It's an awesome resource for all of us.

You should be extremely proud! It's a fabulous resource and it's without a doubt, the best organised comm I've come across. It was the first comm that I joined when I discovered the world of fandom last year. You've all done an amazing job with it. I'm honored to be a mod now, I was ridiculously excited when you asked me.
