Day 2: 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.


Wow, this will be so much harder than yesterday cause I have read so many fantastic things... so what I'm going to do is rec three fics that have really stayed with me, and three fics from fandoms I'm not in that I've happened upon and loved anyway.

Three fics I found randomly and loved:

Shaving Lessons by helens78
Fandom: Due South
Pairing/Characters: Benton Fraser/Ray Kowalski
Rating: PG-13
Words: 769
Summary: When Fraser stays over at Ray's place, he gets stuck with a disposable Bic. But when Ray has to use Fraser's razor--well, Fraser's straight razor is a little intimidating. Fortunately, Fraser's there to help.

I love shaving fic. I actually especially love shaving fic that's just shaving someone's face. I love the intimacy of something that is not actually sexual. This little fic captures that so well. 

Willing Sacrifice by blacktofade
Fandom: Amnesia: The Dark Descent  
Pairing/Characters: Daniel/Alexander 
Rating: NC-17
Words: 5945
Summary: AU: Alexander is a god and Daniel is his sacrifice in a very, very short gown.


Remember how I said I like dub-con fic a lot? Yeah, I like it so much that sometimes I will browse the tag on AO3 and read fic that looks promising. I'm definitely not in this fandom (admittedly I had never even heard of it?) but I loved this fic. And a few of my friends who also don't know the fandom have also read and loved it. So I think maybe more people could love it as original fic? :)

Pet by anatsuno & shaenie
Fandom: Lord of the Rings RPF
Pairing/Characters: Viggo Mortensen/Elijah Wood, Viggo Mortensen/OC, Elijah Wood/OC
Rating: NC-17
Words: 34091
Summary: Elijah Wood is a gifted yet outcast scientist on the verge of a breakthrough; Viggo Mortensen is a mysterious shady dude with a weird alien creature in his pocket (and yes, Viggo's very happy to see Elijah). Tentacle sex somehow ensues!


(Yup, despite LotR being one of my first fandoms I was never in the rps part of the fandom.) When I found out I kinda had a kink for tentacle fic, I looked through the tag on AO3 and found this. And... I don't know, I found it an interesting take on tentacles. I haven't actually reread it in a while though I must admit. 

Three fics that have stayed with me:

Untitled by Anonymous
Fandom: Sherlock
Pairing/Characters: Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Rating: PG
Summary: Fill for prompt "Mycroft dies and he reincarnates into a tree in the garden of Sherlock's retirement cottage in Sussex."


This is so, so gorgeous and I can't stop coming back to re-read it. Despite kink memes containing a lot of lovely fic and art it's rare that I find works on them that I bookmark and come back to a lot. I want to rec this to everyone, always. 

A Dangerous and Marvelous Kind of Trouble by ArgylePirateWD
Fandom: Adam Lambert
Pairing/Characters: Adam Lambert/TommyJoe Ratliff
Rating: NC-17
Words: 5799
Summary: She wasn't his type, but he couldn't look away. - In which Tommy meets a captivating woman named Ada Lambert at a bar, and sparks fly.


I don't read a lot of het fic. Genderswap definitely isn't a kink of mine. Yet I find myself reading this fic again and again and again. It's all kind of hot and femaleAdam is amazingly portrayed and and well I just love it. It deserves to be read and re-read.

A Handful of Dust by Sulwen
Fandom: Adam Lambert
Pairing/Characters: Adam Lambert/TommyJoe Ratliff
Rating: R
Words: 1104
Summary: The world is falling apart. Adam runs. Tommy gets left behind.


The fics that stay with me the longest are always the ones with unanswered questions. This is one of those fics. It's almost 2 years since I first read it and I still think about it sometimes. It's amazing in all kinds of ways and it would be easy to say "I wish it was longer. I wish there was more." But at the same time I really don't because if it answered all those questions it might not have left this lasting impression on me.

Pheeeew that was even harder than I thought it would be. I tried my best to find fics that haven't got a lot of hits, but yeah, not really in any tiny fandoms that would be comfortable with me reccing on an unlocked journal. I'm hoping someone will come along and enjoy some of these recs!

And I actually wanted to do some vid/art recs too but I'm going to have to do that at another time cause too tired now. xD
