Snowflake Challenge #3 - Favorite Communities, Fests or Challenges

Favorite fandom comms/fests/challenges! Okay, this will be select because I cast a pretty wide multifannish net over fandom.

Before the fibromyalgia got debilitating five years ago I was way more active -- generally. I can end it that way, I was more active generally, as a writer and a participant. The last five years have largely changed my fannish habits to those of an iceberg -- partially visible, mostly lurking large beneath the surface. So some of these I once participated in, but haven't in awhile -- but I love seeing the results!

[community profile] narniaexchange, the Narnia Fic Challenge. I'm pretty sure I've been idly yet persistently thinking about Narnia since my parents first read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to me when I was four.

Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia, a low-key challenge that just opened for its ninth year, modded by the lovely [personal profile] petra. I love this trope so very much.

#ITPE, the annual #InformalTwitterPodficExchange. This challenge is such a treat, every year. [twitter.com profile] ITPE_mod always brings the joy, and hours of podfic joy to one's iPod. (Proverbial or otherwise.)

[community profile] hall_no, The Leonard Cohen Title Challenge (Any Freaking Song but Hallelujah), which was created by [personal profile] minim_calibre late last year. Love the idea, and the parenthetical cracks me up. I've got something on the back burner for this one.

[community profile] bitchinparty, also known occasionally as Pacificon but I don't think I've called it anything other than Bitchin' Party in the last decade. Super thrilled to be able to attend this year with [personal profile] perpetual_motion after a long absence; I had tickets and everything in place for the last one, but fibro's a bitch and takes no prisoners. On the bright side, I was able to pass my registration on to [personal profile] pi, and use some frequent flier miles to send Rhea out there in my stead. That felt amazing, to be able to gift that experience.

[community profile] access_fandom, "improving disability access in fandom". It's a low volume comm, with great posts and strong discussion.

Anything good out there I should know about? Where do you like to spend your time?
