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.

Fanvid rec

Sail by Amanda - A fanvid for the movie The Fall.
Why recced: I think this vid is seriously underappreciated, at least there's not many comments on the OP, though I don't understand why. It's perfect. The effects, the cut, the music... the whole story of the movie told in few minutes, much more comprehensibly and emotionally than the movie managed to do itself. I first saw the vid, then the movie, and still... the fanvid resonates in me. Go watch... and give some love to the author. Please.

Fanfic rec

Reluctance by Sunlitroses
- Sanctuary fandom
Summary: He tended to think of it more as a battle of wits than anything more sinister or underhanded. She wanted to doctor; he wanted to not be in the infirmary. Ever.
Why recced: I must admit, I'm a h/c junkie. I love a well written fic with believable characters. I love angst and fluff and friendship, and this fic has it all. Bonus points for the focus being on my favorite character Will, as well as Helen. Also if you like this fic, be sure to check out the author's other fics and give some reviews:-)

Original fic rec

Keeper by Kristine Williams
Summary: When Captain Alex Marcase's estranged father dies, he hopes his inheritance will be enough to fund his next deep space expedition. When his inheritance turns out to be a genetically-altered slave named Evan, it's just the beginning of the end of Alex's normal, orderly life.
Not only does Evan have his own brand of morality, his special abilities are coveted by his late owner's enemies. As the pair head into deep space with their enemies in hot pursuit, Alex's chief rival ahead of them, and a saboteur onboard their ship, will they be able to learn to appreciate each other as individuals in time?
Or will their differences be too much to overcome?

Why Recced: Because it's one of the best science fiction series I've ever read! No kidding... it has all I love in a good fic. Well written characters, plot, friendship, a whole universe that makes SENSE and lots of action. Did I mention friendship? The series has three more books written and published, and they're equally awesome. The author decided to put the books on for sale, even though you can still download them for free. Read them. Comment. And please... if you love them as much as they deserve, and have the finances.... buy them. Because such talent needs support.

Finally, we were asked for three recs, but if you like at least one of my recs and think you would love some more, check out my delicious list.

Every day for 30 days, you post something good that happened that day. Don't mention any bad things near the meme!

Day 7/30: Today was spent mostly luxuriating on the bed, browsing the net:-) I've watched Fringe and liked the episode quite well. Loved the ending:-)  Also there was an update in my favorite Sherlock fic Family Affairs by [livejournal.com profile] s0mmerspr0ssen . Another great chapter:-) There's also [livejournal.com profile] kj_svala's post about the LA Con with beautiful photos and her great report from the photo ops.  To finish off all the good things, dad tried out a recipe for a chocolate liquer (yummy) and mom cooked my favorite food - bryndzove halušky. And now I can lie back and relax with a good movie. You gotta love Saturdays:-)

I've been off the ff grid lately, reading mostly just Sherlock fics and while they're great, I need something else too, so I'm turning to you my f-list.  Any good long or short but preferably finished fics? H/c or angst are the way to go, but humor is also welcome. Help me out with your faves please.

Yay! I've just discovered the world of audiofics! After listening to Mink's fic Receding read by Issaro I've got a craving for more. Any good recommendations? Give me your favorite audiofics.... as long as it's not slash. Not that I have something against it, but it really isn't something I want to listen to. I'm kinda shy that way, lol. Any gen around? H/c and humor are preferred, the fandoms range from SPN, Star Trek to NCIS, and possibly anything in between. Any ideas?

I finally made an account on delicious. Yay! There's not much there yet, just few fics and maybe vids, but I'm gonna work on it. Hopefully, my tags will be comprehensible enough lol. Ok, nothing more to say, here's the link: http://delicious.com/leoraine
