Does anyone know if it is the Done Thing to post sets of icons to AO3? Like would it count as fanart?

Usually I would never, but I'm thinking of a minuscule fandom that doesn't really have a comm on DW or a Tumblr community, but that does tend to like/use my icons when I make 'em. And wondering if that would be a centralized way for people to find them all at once.

(Obviously would also still crosspost new ones here.)

ETA: And now I have done.

I have no idea, but it seems to me like a good way for people to be able to find them. I don't see why you couldn't do it, and maybe even update with "new chapters" for new icons?

I haven't seen it done, but I really don't see why you couldn't. It's still a fanwork, and they even allow meta, so I don't think there's anything about icons that would make it a problem. I think it sounds like a good idea!

I've seen people putting wallpapers on AO3, so I don't know why not icons.

It'd be useful for CC fans, for sure.

Honestly, I had no idea Ao3 even did fan art at all. I might put up some of my stuff there, if that's the case, just to make sure it has a home somewhere other than LJ and, in one case, Tumblr.

Ohhh, yeah, that does make it tougher. Still maybe worth working out, though.

Aww, thanks! I'm never really 100% satisfied with my drawing, just because I have friends who are tons better than I am, and I feel more generally confident with writing. But it's fun, and every now and then I do something I really like. ♥
