Comment Recathon  


THIS RECATHON SPONSORED BY: SHEER LAZINESS (and an odd inability to find good fic while searching desperately for it)

The Basics

1. Recommend as much fanfiction as you want. It is a truth universally acknowledged, where there is a fandom there are people searching for fic for it.

2. Recommend fic that you feel everyone in the fandom should read. Or fic that you wish you'd found earlier while you'd been sifting through the immense wasteland that is fanfiction.net.

3. Feel free to rec your fic-- after all, almost everyone is their own worst critic, and if you think it's good enough to be recommended, it probably is.

4. Site no bar. Link to any site you wish-- Livejournal, fanfiction.net, dreamwidth, etc. etc.

5. While recommending a fic, try and follow the order: MENTION THE FANDOM IN THE 'SUBJECT' then, Title/Author/Link/Character or Pairing/Why it gets your rec. To make life easier, just use the format in the box.

6. Recommend fic for any and all fandoms. Also, any ship/kink is allowed; slash, gen, het, incest, Disney incest (which is a category on its own, trufax), THEY NEED THE LOVE. 

7. Please pimp this on your journals, using the link below :D


MORE RECS = MORE AWESOME FIC TO READ. /this post requires mathematical expertise y'all.

Why this must be read: Because all the character voices are SO spot on - it feels like you are watching/reading an episode, written by a writer with a fannish bent of mind. God bless this author. And please do check out her other fic too. Awesome fics are awesome.

Title: you and i are a story (that never gets told)
Author: sing_song_sung
Link:http://ampersandstars.livejournal.com/37488.html#cutid1
Character/Pairing: Dan/Blair (background Nate/Serena)
Why this must be read: The characterization. It is so damn hard to find fic in this fandom that gets every character's voice even close to right, especially regarding Dan/Blair and Nate/Serena. Either Blair is too harsh and pushes Nate away or Serena is too much of a bimbo and doesn't deserve anyone's love, etc. This fic has perfect characterization of every single character in an AU/Future setting and it makes you fall in love with them all... which makes the angst all the more bittersweet.

Character/Pairing:
Marcus Flint/ Katie Bell.
Why this must be read: This fic is single handedly responsible for my perception of Marcus Flint as more than just a lunkhead. Talk about major character development. Also, the banter between him and Katie, it makes me weep with happiness cause it's just that f-king good. And then there's the romance, the tension, and how both of them believe that the other dosen't have the raging hots for them when actually, they do. Also, a healthy amount of angst+tension wherever necessarily which in my opinion is what makes this fic, Something That Should Be Read. Definitely underrated and worth a read. :)The only sad part is that it's not complete. But hey, maybe some day it will be right? :)

Character/Pairing: Derek/Casey
Why this must be read: Because this is one of the best fics there is. And notice how I didn't say 'in the LWD fandom'. Derek's inner monologues are both angst-ridden and utterly hilarious. It also has the most wonderful Derek/Casey ship development possible, while maintaining insane characterizations.

Title: Unfinished Sympathy
Author: Caramel Charm
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5888406/1/Unfinished_Sympathy
Character/Pairing: Damon/Caroline, Damon/his non-existent good side (yeah, that's listed in the summary, why wouldn't you read this fic?)
Why this must be read: Because, simply speaking, it's one of the best things I've read in the TVD fandom. It's the kind of fic that makes you sad after reading it because you're pretty certain the fandom cannot have much more to offer fic-wise. The setting is slightly AU, but the background is beautifully created. Damon is a glorious, unaplogetic bastard. This fic also has the best depiction of the idea of compulsion that I've yet seen; so realistic it's almost a little frightening. But basically every Damon/Caroline shipper and every Damon/Caroline non-shipper needs to read this /end
jdphoenix: vampire barbiejdphoenix on August 30th, 2011 07:31 pm (UTC)
I have to second this rec. This is my all time favorite TVD fic and I honest recommend it to everyone I know. It was written before season 2 and so features a human Caroline, which is a novelty in and of itself these days so to find it in such a fantastic fic is a special treat. Just try it out, you won't be disappointed.

Title: Tea Time And Time Lords.
Author: Blithers.
Link: http://blithers.livejournal.com/4430.html#cutid1
Fandoms: Community/Doctor Who.
Character/Pairing: The fic doesn't really focus on any particular pairing, although, thanks to some alien pollen, there is some Jeff/Annie, Annie/Shirley, Annie/Abed, Abed/Shirley, Annie/10th Doctor, Abed/Britta, Troy/Abed, Jeff/Britta, Shirley/Jeff and Shirley/Britta in one strange (and hilarious) scene. (I would have just written Everybody/Everybody, but Pierce is noticeably absent)
Why this must be read: It's funny, exciting, heartwarming and reads like a super-condensed version of a season (or "series") of Doctor Who.

Title: Forgetting To Forget
Author: Angel of Insanity
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3170721/1/Forgetting_to_Forget
Character/Pairing: Peter/Lucy
Why this must be read: It's not like the fandom's overflowing with fic for these two, so I'm pretty sure this is the best Peter/Lucy fic out there. The framing is absolutely beautiful, as is Lucy's voice with that touch of innocence lost and how it feels to go back to being a child, after having been an adult with adult experiences. The Peter/Lucy relationship seems entirely natural and then wholly unnatural; creating an excellent dichotomy between Narnia and the 'real' world.

Title: The God Of The Lost
Author: Gravidy
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1352741/1/The_God_of_the_Lost
Character/Pairing: Draco/Hermione; ensemble
Why this must be read: I'm pretty sure this fic needs absolutely no introduction; it's already gained epic status in fandom as one of the best Draco/Hermione fics out there (and considering the sheer vastness of the HP fandom, that's saying something). The characterizations and character-growth is unbelievable, along with the background, entirely of the author's creation. The build up to the Draco/Hermione is delicious. Draco is a complete bastard and Hermione is a smart, neurotic, control-freak. Yes, it is incomplete and I doubt it'll be finished anytime soon, if at all, but this is one fic where nobody loses by reading. It's an experience in itself.

Title: The Stone Gryphon
Author: rthstewart
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1873140/rthstewart
Character/Pairing: Peter at first, other Pevensies later, Eustace, Jill, and some fabulous original characters
Why this must be read: This is the beginning of rthstewart's epic Stone Grpyhon series, in which we find out what Peter and Susan were up to the summer their siblings journeyed on the Dawn Treader, and then what happens when they're all reunited. Read The Stone Gryphon first, then The Queen Susan in Tashbaan, and then Apostolic Way, which is a WIP (all at the link). Incredibly rich, detailed storytelling, flashes between this world and their time in Narnia, and shows how the Kings and Queens learn to adjust to life in this world, and find their place in it. Thoughtful, humorous, and part 2 has lots of intrigue. Also, fantastic original characters that you will love.

Title: Carpetbaggers

Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/106190/chapters/146600
Character/Pairing: All four Pevensies, no pairings
Why this must be read: The Pevensies defeated the White Witch, Aslan crowns them Kings and Queens of Narnia, but what happens next? How the Pevensies learn all about ruling Narnia.

Link: http://bedlamsbard.dreamwidth.org/673233.html (takes you to the latest chapter, with links to all previous ones)
Character/Pairing: Pevensies, Eustace, Jill, Tirian
Why this must be read: An epic Last Battle AU - what if Aslan didn't show up and end the world, and Eustace and Jill and Tirian lost Narnia to the Calormenes, and then, five years later, the High King and his siblings return to Narnia? It's a WIP, but detailed worldbuilding, wonderful OCs and a fascinating look at the canon characters make it all worth it. Plus, some of the best action scenes you'll find in fanfic.

Title: A World Full of Hermans
Author: Bloodless Igby
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6925699/1/A_World_Full_of_Hermans
Character/Pairing: Damon/Damon
Why this must be read: Honestly, I don't get why this fic doesn't have tons of reviews. This is an excellent Damon analysis. There are two basic tones throughout the story; Damon's views of Damon and the author's affectionate sarcasm at his expense. Or maybe Damon is self-aware enough to actually understand all those things about himself. But seriously, this is exactly my conception of Damon. Exhibit A:

"Adiós, Herman," he says lightly, as he throws piece after piece of a guy who may or may not have been named Herman into the river. He had a good death. Useful all the way to Damon, then to bugs, and hopefully now, to fish.

GO READ.

Character/Pairing: Damon/Damon's inferiority complex.
Why this must be read: Did you have a look at the pairing there? Uh huh. Truth be told, as popular as Damon is, there are few fic writers in this fandom whom I think actually depict him right. stainofmylove is one of those few.
