WAFF-a-thon 2012 - Main Thread!  
And if we all could spread a little sunshine
All could lend a helping hand
We all would be a little closer
To the Promised Land

WAFFathon 2012 Official Thread

Welcome, everyone, to the fourth official WAFFathon, making the Internet a little happier. The premise behind the WAFFathon is simple: Fandom is great, but let's face it, it can get pretty dark around here at times. Not to mention that it rains absolute CRAP on the characters we most love. So to make their not-quite-canon lives a little better, and to increase the per-capita volume of Warm and Fuzzy Feelings (WAFF for short) on these here intertubes, the WAFFathon has arrived!

This year I'm upping the ante by putting my money where my WAFF is... see more behind the cut!

How to Play:

1)  Comment with a fandom, a pairing, and a prompt. Your prompt can be specific, general, vague, cryptic, silly, goofy, OOC, AU, sexy, anything you like, so long as it brings a little sunshine in the end.

2) Find a prompt you like and make something fluffy and feel-goody out of it. Fanfic, fanart, manips, icons, vids, fanmixes, motis and macros, and anything else creative are all welcome. Adult content is also welcome, but remember that the goal is to be WAFFy!

3) Post it (or a link to it) in the comments.

4) Watch people's lives light up!

The Rules:

1) Provide lots of encouragement to the creators. Feedback. Compliment. Hug. Friend. Mem. It's good karma.

2) This meme will be very lightly policed, but policed it will be. So behave. No trashing of others, fandoms, ships, chars, stories, or the meme writ large will be tolerated. Friendly concrit or suggestions are fine, but keep in mind that we are trying to make people happy, not insecure. As your Moddess Goddess(TM), I reserve the right to do what I feel I need to do. Which I hope will be nothing, but which you are hereby forewarned can change depending on my very mercurial mood. So... like I said. Behave.

3) I have no end date in sight for this meme, but I suggest keeping it a weeklong activity.

4) You are more than welcome to crosspost your creative works wherever you like. It should go without saying that taking someone else's work and passing it off as your own elsewhere is unacceptable by any definition. I refer folks to stop_plagiarism   as a good place to follow up on any problems that might occur.

Make the world even happier!

A couple of extra things you can do if you want to make everyone happier:

1) Readers/viewers: If you find an author/creative person you like, go back through their other works and comment on them, or rec their works on your journal. Creative people love feedback and it's especially gratifying when you get feedback on something you thought was lost to time and when someone likes your work enough to recommend it to his or her friends.

2) Creators: be sure to thank readers for their time and energy spent on your work. Friend them if they've friended you or recced you. One of the great things about fan-creative communities is the proximity you can have to the people you admire and respect. We don't get to have conversations with Joss and Kripke and the rest, but we can talk to each other and that's even cooler.

3) Pimp this meme to any friends or communities you think would be interested. You can find banners and code at the Banner Thread. Hotlink your little hearts out!

4) If you're feeling really encouraged, please consider making the world a better place on behalf of the fandom community.

The Hunger Site
The Breast Cancer Site
The Child Health Site

ASPCA * Random Acts * International Committee of the Red Cross * America's Second Harvest * Humane Society International * UNICEF * American Cancer Society * Oxfam * Amnesty International


I will split the money evenly among Random Acts, the ASPCA, and the Red Cross. Make me too poor to attend DragonCon this year :) (Please note that your comment has to be a genuinely happifying comment in order to count toward the total!)

(I know we're all poor in fandom, but we're actually very rich!)

5) Tell someone you love today how much you care for and appreciate them, and remember: Happiness is a completely renewable energy source!


...perdiccas   and oxoniensis   for hosting similar memes in the past that I've participated in. You guys set up the model for me to build on.

PROMPT: (Supernatural D/C)- PDA
OKAY so I really just want Dean to be shamelessly cuddly/touchy/nuzzly/handholdy/twitterpated and a-okay with it. Grossed out Sam and indulgent Cas always make me happy too. <3

Re: PROMPT: (Supernatural D/C)- PDA
Cas' hands are always warm, and the skin of his palms is surprisingly soft. Dean should probably be used to it by now, but it still gets to him, makes him smile like an idiot just because he's allowed to feel it. He likes Cas' hands. They're awesome. And Sam can make all the bitchfaces he wants, but Dean isn't going to stop enjoying Cas' hands just because they're in public.

Right now, Sam is ignoring them completely, staring at the window displays they walk past like they're the most fascinating thing in the world. Dean suspects he's pretending he doesn't know them at all, but he's not bothered. Cas' hand is in his, their fingers entwined, and Dean is rubbing his thumb over Cas' bony knuckles, back and forth, back and forth. He likes the way it makes Cas' face soften, the way it makes the lines around his eyes smooth out just a tiny bit. He knows the angel is indulging him, but he also knows Cas would never let him do it if he didn't secretly enjoy it. Cas is just as much of a PDA slut as Dean is, he just hides it better.

Sam shoots them a disgruntled look, sighs, and them tips his head towards an ice cream truck he's apparently spotted in his attempt to look at anything but them.

"Want to add some actual sugar to all the disgusting sweetness floating around?" he asks, and Dean is in too good a mood to even try and be offended. He just pulls on Cas' hand, smiles when Cas' grip tightens just a bit, and starts the age-old debate of chocolate versus vanilla with Sam. Ice cream sounds awesome.

My D/C muses! They have returned! \o/ Thank you for this wonderful prompt, and I hope you enjoy my fill. :)

Re: PROMPT: (Supernatural D/C)- PDA
This just warms me right up because I can see Dean like this when he's really happy.

That is adorable, baby! Now I want all the fics about Dean and Cas holding hands. (I do love Cas' hands myself, but you know that).

Re: PROMPT: (Supernatural D/C)- PDA
Thank you, bb! It felt good to just write something completely fluffy and not have to think so hard. :P Also, Cas' hands deserves ALL the fic, because I agree, they are awesome. Hand kink? Check. (that's actually a kink I knew I have before fandom, so yay for old kink!)
