International Fanworks Day is now behind us, but we’d like to thank everyone who took part in our challenge and in celebrating the day! If you missed it, here are some things you can catch up on:

  1. The short fanworks challenge, #IFDrabble. Check out the tag #IFDrabble wherever you fan or the International Fanworks Day 2015 tag on AO3. We’re sharing some of our favorite entries below!
  2. Feedback Fest: See the links to favorite fanworks that people have made (and be sure to leave your own feedback, too!)
  3. We heard about celebrations in other fandom communities, so take a look at the list and drop in to see what they shared!
  4. On 8 February, we held a live chat on “Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated”, with authors Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me, and Racheline Maltese. All of these authors started out writing fanfiction and have gone on to be published professionally—and they still participate in fanworks. Along with moderator Francesca Coppa, the panelists discussed the value and importance of all kinds of fanworks. If you missed it, you can still read the transcript.

And if that isn’t enough, here are some IFDrabble works that caught our attention:
