Note: All my fic posts include a warning/enticement category, which has to be highlighted to be read. Yes, even if there's nothing in particular that needs mentioning. This is for the sake of the people who want/need spoilers and for the sake of people like me, for whom even the presence of a warning constitutes too much of a spoiler.

About My Recs

This page started out - as recs pages so often do - as a personal list of story links, which I started keeping after losing my bookmarks in a computer crash. As time went on, though, I thought I might as well make it public, and this is the result.

What you'll find here: Multi-fandom recs, first heavily weighted toward due South and (Snape-centric) Harry Potter fanfic, and most recently, very biased toward Sherlock (BBC) and Marvel's The Avengers. I'm separating the recs by fandom, and I'll be indicating the pairing, so you'll be able to tell whether the stories are slash, het, or gen. I'll even try to indicate what genre each story is, although with the slash and het recs, you can pretty much assume I think of them as "romance," regardless of any other category the stories might fall into.

A note about warnings: Please note that most of these story recommendations were made before I reconsidered my warnings policy (i.e., before I decided to include major warnings). Generally speaking, there's little of a dark or violent nature to warn for in these stories, but...caveat lector.

A note about "writing quality": Generally speaking, I want to see well-written, canon-based, reasonably original stories with recognizable characters. However, there are a few points I need to make:

(1) Not everyone's first language is English. Now, in my experience, most authors for whom English is a second (or third) language take more care with the language than a lot of the native speakers do; however there may be some stories that find their way onto this page with, oh...let's say unusual syntax. This is not a crime.

(2) Once upon a time, all cliches were original. A few of the stories I'm thinking about reccing have elements that are now considered ridiculously cliched (like "...Snape's not really ugly; he just uses a glamour to seem that way"), but if that kind of story's included on this page, it's probably because the cliche wasn't a cliche when the author first posted the fic.

(3) Bad characterization is a sin . . . unless I say it's not. This is especially true in the case of parodies, in which part of the fun is seeing how the author plays with character attributes.

Final Note: this is "a work-in-progress." I'll be playing "catch-up" - particularly with my older fandoms - for quite some time, but there's more to come. There's always more to come.

Really Final Note: With two exceptions, I'm not including any WIP's on these pages. There are many excellent in-progress stories, but someone else is going to have to keep track of them.

Really, Really Final Note: Links to more detailed recommendations (on LJ recs communities, etc.) are indicated by: REC LINK

Special Note to Authors: If you're writing in a fandom set in contemporary NYC (Avengers, White Collar, etc), and you're looking for a beta for city-related issues, feel free to email me at the gmail address on the profile page.
