|09:38 pm - Fic Recs!|
I'm going to try to rediscover stuff I like and find the links again.
I'll be editing this entry and adding more as I find pockets of time in my schedule.
H | K | T
Playing for Keeps, ~5800 words, complete
I don't read too much Harry Potter fic because I've never actually read any of the books. But I want to keep this here because it's very... quietly awesome. A lot of times I'll rec things simply because they hit my kinks and manage to be readable, but this piece hits absolutely none of my kinks - it's just that well-written. (Though I am a sucker for unusual premises, and for the whole delayed-punch thing - does that count as a kink?)
Sanity's Sake, ~6500 words, complete
I never really got into House fandom... I tried to get into it, for Hugh Laurie (I'm a Fry & Laurie fangirl), but the show never really appealed to me. That said, I'm a sucker for this kind of plot, and I'd probably enjoy it regardless of the fandom or the characters.
Katekyou Hitman Reborn!
The Tenth Diary, ~7500 words, incomplete
I don't mind indefinite works in progress, though I understand why other people won't read them. This is one of my favorites that will never be finished - it features my favorite Reborn character as a psycho stalker and it introduced me to Mirai Nikki.
Little or Nothing, ~12000 words, complete
I love the tension in this piece. It's not exactly how I imagine the characters in my head - it's probably better, just because it's a whole lot more fun. Midvalley is perfectly smug, and Wolfwood hides his confusion and insecurities behind a perfect veneer of sarcasm. Their meeting seems organic, unforced, inevitable - unlike a lot of fics which have Midvalley and Wolfwood meeting in some dive bar, which seems probable but not likely to me (it just makes too much sense to actually happen). I also enjoy how so much plot is crammed into a piece that doesn't really require any.

Oh, Tony. This is so embarrassing I can't even make a gay crack about it.
