So Consider me a lemming because I really like this challenge and I do love it when I can ponder my favourite babies. Seen everywhere but most recently with[livejournal.com profile] stellarmeadow

Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Drop a link to your post in the comments.

I have only been writing in my current fandom, Hawaii Five-0, since June so I don't have much work to delve through, so I'm going to pluck some from my immediate past fandom which was Lord of the Rings RPS.

1. Hearing Your Song was my first attempt at a pairing that became very dear to me. Billy Boyd and his band Beecake have a mysterious fanboy. When Billy confronts the mysterious Orlando he discovers the taller man's secrets.

2. My own little labour of love is my Western Lover's series written within the LOTRps fandom. My particular favourite Cowboys and Biologists is almost 99k long and was my first experiment with the Ordaisy (Orlando Bloom/David Wenham) pairing. C & B is the story of David, a jaded warrior with a frozen heart and Orlando, a gentle nature loving biologist who is trying to save the lives of the Big Cats on the Double L Ranch. If you're inclined to read C & B, I'd recommend you start with Western Lovers: Cowboys and Archaeologists featuring Billy Boyd/Dominic Monaghan, it weighs in at just over 161k words, which is about average for the 8 volumes in the series. Soon there will be a volume featuring a ex soldier/photographer and a ranch hand named Alex and Scott respectively.

3. My favourite, so far, fic I have written in the Hawaii Five-0 fandom is Alone. It's a coda to episode 2.03, mainly because I think so much was left unwritten in the final scene. Steve has so many levels and so many layers to the emotions in that scene. Also I was chuffed that it inspired Not alone by [livejournal.com profile] alassenya

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.

1. Debts, Dates and Denials An Urban Ghost Story/Lost crossover of sorts by my bestie and beta [livejournal.com profile] alassenya . It was one of the first fics I read when I was dabbling my toes in the Lotrps fandom and whilst it's not Lotrps it was close enough for me. It has an incredibly simple yet complex cast of characters and well plotted storyline, and is still one of my favourite go to fics.

2. Hit the Ground Running by [livejournal.com profile] stellarmeadow  was the first fic I read when I hit the Hawaii Five 0 fandom and I used to sweat on AO3/LJ daily waiting for another fic.  I loved the way the story pretty much fit with the way I thought the start of the second season would go and loved the interactions with all the characters I had grown to love.

3. the Sound of the Ocean is Dead by [archiveofourown.org profile] portrait_of_a_fool is a masterpeice.  I sobbed my way through it, I felt Steve's pain and his confusion, Danny's anger and his confusion at his inability to really help Steve was tangible.  It's a hard fic to read but so very worth it.
