Number four, something I made just for myself, was quite a challenge because you could argue that all my art/stories are for myself - I wouldn't do it if I didn't enjoy it!
But ultimately, I've narrowed this one down to two pieces: a story and a piece of artwork.
The story is one of the longest I have ever written at over 30,000 words. I wrote it because I wanted to treat the boys. I just wanted to give them a little bit of joy, and fun and good luck, just for once in their lives, and so this story was born. It started off as a fairly simple concept but as I was writing it, it took on a life of its own, (I had to throw in a little bit of angst and hurty comfort and adventure after all) and I got so deeply invested in it, I was actually crying as I wrote the last chapter!
Of all my stories, I think it's the one I have the most emotional attachment to, and it's called 'Wish You Were Here'.

The artwork is called 'The Weight of Eternity' and it's something that I challenged myself to do when I was just learning the fundamentals of digital art (something I'd never even attempted before I got into fandom). It's pretty basic, but it's one of the first pieces I ever made and I remember being really proud of it when I first made it!
