SSSS / ARtD Advent Calendar 2017 - Daily Treats 1-24 December!
« on: November 30, 2017, 03:18:15 AM »
The SSSS / ARtD Fan-Forum Advent Calendar 2017

It has become an annual tradition here on the Forum to construct an Advent Calendar of fanworks in various media, based on Minna Sundberg's webcomics A Redtail's Dream and Stand Still Stay Silent.  Each day from 1 through 24 December, a new fanwork treat will be added to this thread, with the grid above becoming live with links to the post as the month progresses.  Many of our finest artists and writers are preparing works for our delight, with many focusing on a festive theme.
The (general) target time to reveal each new work will be in the wee hours of Official Fan Forum time.

Good luck to everyone participating, I look forward to seeing what you come up with!  I unfortunately missed the signups, but I may write something festive anyway.  My writing skills are a bit rusty but we'll see.

This is a good point - nothing is stopping us from stuffing two 'treats' into the same compartment.  If you (or anybody) has something appropriate fixed up, PM it to me and I'll put it in as an extra treat!

::) I can't wait 'til midnight Forum time - so sue me.  Time to get this party started!!

Yours truly, your humble moderator volunteers to go first.  While not exactly referencing anything festive, this is light-hearted in spirit, as a way to ease us in to that December spirit.
Spoiler: the adventures of sigrun, with apologies to ogden nash • show







This is an SSSS take on Ogden Nash's poem "The Adventures of Isabel" which he wrote as a paean to his preteen daughter.  Read the original here: https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/adventures-of-isabel/

Spoiler: howzabout this for festive, tho • show

Bwahahaha it's *always* the season for silly hats!  In this case, a set of Ho Ho Ho reindeer antlers / Hanukah menorah.

This is great! It brought back some nostalgia from when I was little and we would listen to the Natalie Merchant cover of this! Totally sang it in my head while reading!

Today's lovely treat comes to us courtesy of gjuerneThank you!

Spoiler: sigrun and solstice thoughts • show

A younger Sigrun gazes out at the glorious stars on Solstice night and thinks how boring it is in winter when all the trolls are hibernating. She sure hopes Father Christmas wakes one up for her. Punching a troll would be a Most Best Yule present!
(*Note: the tracks are ski tracks to one of the Dalsnes guard outposts where Sigrun will undoubtedly show up early for her shift in hopes that a troll or beast will soon appear.)

Wonderful everyone! <3

I'll do my best, but I don't understand yet what you're after? I have them in different colours to denote which ones have live links.
The jumbledy order is taken from past years, & is meant to emulate the way they're often set out on boughten Advent Calendars.
Which effect do you want to change? I'm off to bed now, so I'm going to go with not changing the colours. Apologies in advance if I've chosen the wrong option.
