Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Oh, boy, foisting reccing! Thanks to wendelah1 for reminiscing about LJ's comm Crack Van. This entry with its fourteen artiste recs (the norm was three fics weekly and one vid and one crossover per turn at the wheel) is in fond remembrance for the comm and the years that I recc'd for it:

Zootopia Scenes and Shorts GrandOldPenguin writes well-plotted and characterized Penguins of Madagascar stories, each complete and completely captivating. With the release of Zootopia, he has undertaken various genres of ficcing to extending the Zootopiaverse. Bonus mentions of PoM characters in the first segment!

A Tangled Web Revin Songlifter makes me drool with her ability to flesh out Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea TV-verse characters and create worthy OCs, especially a supernatural one who ... um. Trot on over and meet Galené.

Paternity Pursuit places Marlene The Otter in a situation that is responsible for various states inside the Penguins of Madagascar 'verse or outside of it: joy, despair, catatonia, you name it. Her unplanned pregnancy sets the stage for Wildgoose1's delicious series of novel-length stories written in an inimitable style. Take a moment to get used to the script-like format detailing adventures for Skipper and Team and then dive into the main stories plus its sequels, Deviations, Hell Hath No Fury, and
Once More Into The Breech, now in progress. All are imaginative and introduce OCs to die for.

Priorities by the team of Snark-N-Moon details how Kowalski's lack of sleep prompts Rico to "help" his friend. Lots of Kico (Kowalski/Rico) and Skilene (Skipper/Marlene) for romance lovers and also a neatly developed plot. There is a WIP sequel, A Season of Miracles with a very decent wordcount.

Polyester Girl by Hyaenaa portrays Rico's love for his 11 1/2 inch plastic dolly in completely understandable terms. A sweet and slightly sad story for PoM.

Asthma by ForThoseWhoLikeToMoveItMoveIt features Skipper's ailment as something he'd like very much to forget about. Luckily, staunch friend Kowalski holds his feet to the fire to force the penguin commando to face facts. An uncommon ending in this one.

In The Line Of Duty by Crystal Volcheck details the humanized penguin commando crew in an engaging fashion and she has an ask blog over on tumblr for the team. It can't be easy to transfer the show's birds-in-a-zoo characters into the human realm, but she does the job neatly.

Hooboy, the art derived from four little penguins boggles the mind. Here are recs for some favorites:

The Gayest Comic is a webcomic by Madame Dobato, WIP, with very decent output in both English and Spanish of the humanized crew. Lots of black and white fun here in both senses of the phrase.

Nice To Meet You by Leilush12 displays her awesome talent for shading and drawing adorable poses of all the team, but in particular Rico. In For Christmas, the effect of fire on the cute couple of Rico and Miss Perky makes the whole piece glow.

Quietly features a humanized Skipper/Private pairing portrayed by Eiskaiserin, who details just the perfect background for a romantic get together for the two.

Winter Wish is JVs Luck's portrayal of species change so that romance occurs between otter and penguin. This time it's an illo for the Skilene pairing from one of wildgoose1's stories. Skipper makes a dashing otter.

Our Love Is Out There, He's Not Coming Back, and Thanks For All by Abecedye (AKA Oftheriot on deviantArt) all portray the cast of a cartoon show as humans, with the first rec as Skilene, the second as not-quite-Dorski (Doris/Kowalski) but maybe Dorskip?, and the last as the whole cast in human form. Such talent and imagination, sighhhhh ...

Smexy Kowalski shows Moonwolf03's talent for just right poses of the penguins, bold as befits a commando. Hitting Turbulence is NSFW in the Skipper/Kowalski pairing. MSPaint is used meticulously by Moonwolf03 and leaves an indelible impression of stick-to-it-tive-ness per the artist. Way to go, moonwolf03!

As the last, here is an episode in animatic form that shows details of how the end product is reached. Voice acting done with expert singing by Jeff Bennett and Danny Jacobs, storyboard by Sunil Hall completed, and now the animatic provides music and sound effects and from there it goes to the colorists, I imagine. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the recs for today.

Day 04

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

It's one of the best things about fandom: reaching out to artistes to show appreciation. It's gladly done each time for a story or artwork, barring only about .01 percent of the time when I can't think of anything to say. Generally, however, I'm Chatty Cathy. :)
