Fifth Annual WAFF-a-THON 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 2013 Official Thread

Welcome, everyone, to the fifth annual 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!

How to Play:

1)  Comment with a fandom 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, gifs, 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. Rec. 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.

(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!

Your status as one of my favorite people in the whole wide world continues to sit pretty with no reservations.

IT'S SO FLUFFY I'M GONNA DIE. And Sam's story. And Sam's snark. And. And li'l Cas and Dean jumping up and down chasing each other thru Bobby's old cars at the end. DO YOU KNOW HOW BADLY I NEED FANART OF THAT.

*fwumps and sits with a dopey grin for the duration* <3

tl;dr: I LOVE IT.

That was darling, but this part:

And then Daniel and Casper grew up and spent five years staring soulfully at each other, until Samuel went crazy and locked them in a closet until they would kiss and get the fuck over themselves, Sam finished inside his head.

Made me laugh out loud in the middle of a diner. :D

Oh my god I can't decide if crying baby Cas or squeeing baby Cas is cuter, but I CAN DECIDE THAT THIS IS AWESOME.

This was so much in here worth praising that I don't even know how to handle it! Oh goodness, I don't even like kid!fics, so I have no idea how you did that to me. You have skills! I love Dean and Cas' child personalities, and how their adult selves reflect through the way children view the world.

Castiel is my favorite, with his insecurities that he can no longer hide (and which people are way more willing to help him with than he realizes as an adult!). I'm having Chuckie from Rugrats flashbacks here, aww.

Thank you so much for sharing this lovely piece. ^_^
