Like many people I collect some pieces of fanworks as chapters of a single work, to avoid horrible, horrible clutter on my works page. In my case it is drawbles and doodles, but others do it with written snippets. That is of course due to the lack of a Scraps feature like dA has, where you can separate less polished stuff from the rest, which I bemoaned here before
. Unfortunately you can't mark chapters as gifts to someone to let them get a notification either.
And before anyone points to the series feature, I already collect drawbles in a twenty part series, with the works being divided by fandoms, and some of these have over 40 chapters. If I made each picture a "work" these would totally swamp the art I want people to notice in any fandom.
I have just doodled something that originally I wanted to post for the Secret Mutant Madness, but didn't get around to before Christmas, even though I liked my idea for the prompt. So now I just wanted to post it anyway, and alert the prompter. But I can't do that and put it with the other Marvel sketches.
So now I have a dilemma, in that I can either mess up my whole organization by posting a sketch as a work, or I can't let the prompter know.
