Cozy evening recommendations

My rec lists are embarrassingly out of date (seriously), so I figured it was high time I added to them all the amazing fic I've read this year - yes, it's been a year! Where has the time gone?? Ugh, IDK. But I *do* know that, now that the weather has become most inhospitable, and as we slide into the holiday season, there's nothing better than sitting down to an amazing set of stories. There's something for everyone here - everything from the short and (bitter)sweet to stories you can really sink your teeth into.

Recommendations: Inuyasha, Baby-sitters Club/California Diaries, Downtown Abbey, Full Metal Panic, Sweet Valley High )

Holiday fic recs

It's been a couple of months since I updated my rec lists, but there are so many wonderful things that I want to share/pimp that I'm probably going to have to make more than one post :P This one is to share ALL THE THINGS that were gifted (to me, or to others) during the holiday exchanges ~ [livejournal.com profile] yuletide & [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking.

First and foremost: FELLOW BSC FANS! If you love to squee about our awesome canon and amazing characters, you would be remiss not to join [livejournal.com profile] bsc_squee! What could possibly be better than having an entire community devoted to nothing but squee? Nothing, that's what! SO JOIN!!!

Fic wasn't the only thing I received for [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking ~ I was also graced with an OTP fanmix, California Dreams icons and squee, as well as ultra-cute BSC OTP icons! :D :D :D I'd definitely say I lucked out this year ~ I'm still enjoying my bounty of gifts, as well as those amazing things gifted to others for the holiday season!

My rec lists are static at the top of my journal ~ Inuyasha | Baby-sitters Club | Multifandom/Miscellaneous ~ and you're welcome to look at them any time =)

I have another barrage of recs still to come, because this was hardly the tip of the iceberg, LOL! =)

Woohoo Recommendations!

A handful of recs, under the cut.

Recommendations - BSC, SbtB, Nancy Drew )

With the help of the always awesome [livejournal.com profile] lucida, I've managed to give the master lists section of my journal a major facelift. She wrote the code, I modified the color schemes (which was so painful, I'm vowing here and now to never do it again OMFG). But the pain was worth it, because now everything has been organized and prettified! =) Take a look:

Master Fic List ~ I only have one now, yay! :D

Recommendations: Inuyasha | Recommendations: Baby-sitters Club | Recommendations: Multifandom

(My multifandom list continues to grow by leaps and bounds, hence splitting off the BSC recs into their own list.) All of these lists are stickied to the top of my journal, and they are continually updated =) Have you read any good stories lately? Tell me about them!

Summertime recommendations

My rec lists are woefully out of date, so it's time to rectify that. There are a bunch of recs under the cut, but one very special ficlet gets above-the-fold treatment =)

Title: Love You (2011)
Author: GloriaFan
Fandom: Kids Inc
Universe: Post-canon
Genre: Romance
Rating: K+
Warning: N/A
Pairing: Ryan/Stacy
Word Length: 313
URL: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7032322/1/
Author's Summary: Saying you love somebody means something, but it means more when you know they love you back. Short bit of giftfic fluff for LuxKen27.

Why I'm recommending this piece: This was a complete and total surprise, and a very much appreciated one. GloriaFan is the other prolific KI fanwriter at the moment, and I've basically over the moon to have stories for that fandom to read that didn't come from my pen. GF messaged me yesterday to alert me to this story, which he put up "just because" =) It's a beautiful little piece of fluff, the sort that pushes all my ooey-gooey romantic buttons for this, my oldest and most enduring OTP ♥

Recommendations: Communities

So I've figured out the work-around to post to FF.net...but apparently their alert system is totally broken. I had a couple of reviews posted up last night that I've yet to receive notice for. Very frustrating >:( (Lovely reviews, though! Anon commenters: if you leave me an email address or other way to contact you, I'd be more than happy to reply to you and/or answer any questions you have! I love chatting with fellow fans =) )

Over the weekend I went on a rash of community joining, mostly because I discovered there were some devoted to 80s-era nostalgia. So if you, like me, enjoyed a childhood in the 80s (and/or ~love~ 80s TV/movies/music), check these places out:

[livejournal.com profile] 80s_icons | [livejournal.com profile] 80sand90sfanfic | [livejournal.com profile] 80srewind

There's also a "dead fandoms" prompt table challenge community, so if you write in a tiny/obscure fandom (or if you want to), check it out: [livejournal.com profile] dead_fandoms

Also of interest ~ [livejournal.com profile] ironyjones has started a writing community at [livejournal.com profile] awenish. It's one part critique circle, one part support group, and it's open to both original and fannish writers. If you're serious about your writing and want to improve any aspect of it, or if you enjoy working with authors in critique, check it out!

Happy timez = reccing timez

For only the second time since I started posting fanfic on the internet, I've managed to finish a multi-part story before posting it. (The first time was this, and I'm hoping for a similarly positive reaction :) ) I'm very excited, and looking forward to sharing the fruits of my holiday-ficcing labor very soon.

In the meanwhile, I'm going to do my part in spreading the squee with another handful of story recs, because the awesome just keeps coming!

And, finally, I spent the better part of the weekend gathering episodes to another childhood favorite show, which is posted in its (almost) entirety to YouTube. Considering my already professed fandoms (Kids Inc, Instant Star), this should come as ABSOLUTELY NO SURPRISE...

Obscure fandom is obscure but awesome, now in playlist form )

Recommendations + a small story-centric update

It's been too long since I did this.

Recommendations: General Hospital fanfic )

Recommendations: BSC fanfic )

As always, you can check out my full recommendations list which is static at the top of my journal here. ETA: Wow, its actually gotten too big for one post! Here's part two.

As for the updates on my stories...well, I'm still rather in the middle of moving, so the muse has deserted me ~ at least for my ongoing projects. I've been feeling some very heavy and exciting things for the possible sequel to Stacy in Bloom, which is fun :) Its set in the future, so I'm puzzling over what sorts of jobs and problems I want to give the squeaky-clean Kids to bring them more in line with reality beyond the fantasy of the show :P

I'm also still working on my Charlie/Janine fic for the BSC fandom. It's about half finished, and I want to wait to post it until its done, just in case I have to go back and revise (since its the first long story I'm writing for said fandom).

As for my IY works ~ Fragments is one chapter away from completion, and *crosses fingers* will be done soon. Next on my list is picking up Fleeting again, since I know how that story ends as well, and its just a matter of finding the time to write it. After a year of being dormant, it seems Sesshoumaru is ready to wake up and speak to me again, LOL.

The first 'new' stories I'll probably post will be my [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking gifts. I'm looking forward to the reveal, because I stepped away from my established fandoms in a sorta big way for it. Those will be revealed at the end of the week, so stay tuned!

Sunny Sunday afternoon recs

Another tiny bundle of recommendations, as I clear out more of my TBR list...

Title: How Will I Know?
Fandom: Kids Inc
Author: [livejournal.com profile] whyteroze28
Universe: Canon divergence (Season 5)
Genre: Drama/Romance
Rating: K+
Warning: None
Pairing: Ryan/Stacy
Word Length: 5,698 (4 chapters)
URL: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6381789/1/
Author's Summary: This story takes place in August 2000, and in this AU, the band dissolved after Ryan left, so there wasn't anything after Season 5. Ryan and Stacy meet again at a KI reunion.

Why I'm recommending this piece: *flails* AUGH SOMEONE ELSE IS WRITING KI FIC BESIDES ME, AND FOR THIS PAIRING! :D :D :D LOL, okay, let me calm down a little bit...this is actually a really adorable fic set 15 years after Season 5 (1988), in which three incarnations of Kids Inc reunite at the P*lace. It's lovely not only for the Ryan/Stacy storyline underlying the whole thing, but also for all the canon references, the love for Mickey, and the careers WhyteRoze28 assigned to everyone. They all really fit, you know? I'm a little jealous that I didn't come up with the idea first, LOL. It's awesome to see someone else's take on the characters, as well as the ship, because its feels like I'm flying solo 99% of the time.

+++

Also, yesterday [livejournal.com profile] zangetsugirl posted four new ficlets for her She-Ra claim at [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100, which of course need to be shared with the world because they are just that frickin' awesome:

Because lady superheroes kick so much ass :D )

A Gateway to Romance

This is a rec list I originally put together at the beginning of the year for [livejournal.com profile] eggplantlady, but considering the pique of interest shown by some of the rest of my f-list thanks to the shipping meme, I figured I'd share it with the rest of you :)

A gateway to romance: rec list for 'beginners' of historical romance fiction )

I think that's enough to get you started :P I didn't rec the books with the hottest sex scenes because generally, they aren't among my favorites, plot or character wise. But if you're curious, I'd be happy to post those names along as well =)
