And so... to day two:

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

Okay, this turned out to be harder than I thought.  Looking at the number of comments on my various bookmarked stories, it turns out that I do run with the herd on a lot of things.  And I thought I was such an individual!  Here are my underappreciated/rare recs

CRAFT A knitted K-9!  I grew up on a steady diet of Doctor Who and adored K-9.  Someday I'll track down a copy of the pattern book and knit my very own K-9.  Go admire him!  Isn't he gorgeous?  

FIC When LOtR RPS was huge it always bemused me that more people didn't write Bean/Dom.  One year, after patiently listening to my plaintive moans, my friend [ profile] feelforfaith wrote me this amazing birthday fic.  Realign. <3 <3 

FIC Burn Notice is a small-ish fandom, and I was quite surprised to find myself shipping them halfway through the second season.  Michael/Victor is way more popular, and I can see the appeal, but I like the almost cosy feeling of M/S.  Ark's Steam Heat is perfectly them

FIC I'm not sure how to describe this one.  An AU Crossover is probably the best way to go: DC Comics/House M.D..  Change Is The Only Constant  When Bruce Wayne becomes Dr Gregory House's newest patient drama ensues.  I have a lot of love for this story and I'm pretty sure you will too!

FIC Luther was one of the BBC's little gems in 2010.  Creepy, terrifying, brilliant and cracktastic in equal measures.  I loved the cat and mouse game between Luther and Alice.  This very short (~400 words) fic captures them perfectly.  Outside.

VID I have a real soft spot for this Supernatural/J2 fanvid.  It's set to a Justin Timberlake song which is so totally not my thing, but the sentiment totally fits the boys.  And I'm quite happy to sit and watch three minutes of blinding smiles :)  Supernatural: Sexy Back

VID This vid is made of awesome.  It's a Supernatural/Doctor Who crossover, set to Enter Sandman.  Naturally I adore it.  Doctor Who/Supernatural: Enter Sandman.  Interestingly enough an "Amy Pond" character has subsequently popped up in a s7 ep of Supernatural!

CRAFT And... this isn't strictly fandom-related, but since fandom would be nothing without the internet, you should all take a look at the fabulous Internet Cross Stitch Sampler.  I keep meaning to get around to making my own... maybe this year I will!

(When I showed Dave the sampler, he liked it but totally didn't get the "1111one111eleventy1111one" part.  And I found myself completely unable to describe what it meant.  Was this just a LJ/fandom_wank thing from back in the day?)
