Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I've written quite a few fics now for the Captain America fandom. Because they're gen and don't ship stucky as a pairing, I feel like they get a little lost in the crowd at Ao3, especially the one-shots. I like outsider POV stories and the very first Bucky Barnes fic I wrote was one, based on the comic side of Captain America:

That Kid From Brooklyn
According to his dossier, when on a mission on American soil in 1973, the Winter Soldier failed to show up at the extraction point and instead, confused and leaving great unease in his wake, worked his way across America until he boarded a bus in Chicago that took him to New York. A gap-filler, outsider-POV ficlet for the Winter Soldier, because I couldn’t stand the thought of no one showing Bucky any kindness in all that time.

I also wrote an outsider-POV fic as a companion piece to my ongoing story, You Will Call Me Friend, that I think works pretty well as a stand-alone piece,. It paints a picture of the neighborhood Bucky was hiding in while he was in Romania. MCU Civil War based:

Shadow Boy
Surely Bucky made at least one or two friends when he was in Bucharest. I wondered what those friends might be thinking about the day after they came for Bucky. Companion one-shot to "You Will Call Me Friend", specifically Chapter 10, which will be helpful to read first.

The third one is a bit of art. I am no fan artist, or any other kind of artist other than self-taught shamateur doodler, but I do enjoy sketching. This is one that I posted at tumblr, a pencil drawing and nothing fancy compared with most of the fan art in that fandom. It didn't get scads of notes, but I really liked how it came out:

SaveI Can't Trust My Own Mind

In my mind, this is the moment that Bucky knows he needs to go into cryo. It will happen at some point in my post-CACW gapfiller You Will Call Me Friend, but I don't know the when or how or why of this moment. I just have this picture in my head of his frustration and despair when nothing they've tried is working to rid his mind of HYDRA's influence. *cries* That's usually how I find inspiration to write stories: I'll have a visual in my head, like this one, that I'll translate into words. It's rare that I'm ever able to capture the vision as art, though. This is probably the first time, actually. So another reason this one is special to me.
