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
it always bemused me that more people didn't write Bean/Dom
. One year, after patiently listening to my plaintive moans, my friend 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!
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?)
