In your own space, ask for recs. Something as simple as "I like XYZ (where XYZ is a kink, a pairing, a trope, etc) - please rec me some." Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Hmmmm, what to ask for. My wish from Day 4, for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles recs that aren't turtlecest or explicit, is definitely still in effect, but what else? Pairing conversion fics, those stories that converted you to an OTP or convinced you that some crack pairing actually totally worked, would be fun. The only example I can think of off-hand at the moment is [ profile] maldoror_gw's Diplomatic Relations, but it is a superb example. As far as fandoms go, I'm passingly familiar with a lot of fandoms and am totally willing to read in unfamiliar canons if the fic sounds interesting enough.

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

1) Recs for reccers! I've subscribed to a bunch of reccers on DW and friended a bunch on LJ, but I'd love to follow more.

2) I've been on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kick recently because there's a new show and I will never not love the ninja turtles, so if anyone knew of good stories, arts, communities, or whatever turtles-related, I would be ecstatic to know about them too. My only caveat is that I'm not really into turtlecest or anything involving turtle penises. (I am totally fine with other people enjoying those things, but they are not my bag.)

3) Video game recs! I am finally getting into playing video games after years of thinking they were just not for me, and I would love some titles that you think I could play. I have access to a lot of systems (Nintendo DS, NES, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Playstation 2, XBox, Game Boy, Game Boy Advanced, probably others too), but I'm really bad at things that require fast reflexes (platformers, most modern RPGs) and have no patience for things that punish death severely (e.g., NetHack). Some games that have worked for me were Katamari Damacy, Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals, Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, and Scribblenauts. The Professor Layton games are on my "to get" list, but I don't know what else I should put on it.

Bonus) Not exactly fannish, but I'd love any delicious dessert or snack recipes that you know of. I like to collect recipes, and when I'm called on to make something (for a party or because I want to) I just browse until I find the perfect thing to make. I'm reasonably competent in the kitchen but lack the patience for anything super involved. And for anyone reading, this peanut butter fudge is both incredibly delicious and incredibly easy to make.

I don't do the [community profile] fannish5 questions too often because I can never think up answers easily, but I wanted to do this one because I immediately thought of a best father.

Robert Hawkins (Static Shock) is a fantastic father, and the relationship between the entire Hawkins family is one of my favorite aspects of the show.

Donald Duck (Quack Pack) was essentially Huey, Dewey, and Louie's father. I'm not at all familiar with the Donald Duck comics, but I'll always be fond of Quack Pack and the mutually antagonistic but ultimately loving relationship between Donald and his teenage nephews.

Benjamin Sisko (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Jake had a relationship that I just loved watching. They loved each other, and each was made stronger by that love. Deep Space Nine would not have been as good a show if Sisko hadn't been a father.

Splinter (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) managed to raise four highly energetic boys completely by himself. It's impressive when you think about it.

James (The Princess and the Frog) is such an important character even though he's in so little of it and that's because he was such a wonderful father for Tiana. This became my favorite Disney movie the first time I saw it, and Tiana's parents are probably the second biggest reason why.
