"Where's that get fun?" Fanfic *Recommendations*

Posted: Sat Jun 30, 2007 4:05 pm

A few rules. Please follow them or you will be hit with the mod stick.

1. You may not recommend your own fic (there's already a thread for that).

2. Follow this format:

Title (and remember to link to the story :wink: )
Author
Fandom(s)
Characters/ratings/warnings
Summary/Why you are recommending it/Why others should read it ("because I said so" doesn't quite cut it.)

3. You may post 5 recommendations in your first post and up to 3 in every post after.

4. 1 post of recommendations per day. Do not spam the thread.

5. Read the previous recommendations and try not to rec the same story/stories over and over again. (If you liked it that much, I'm sure the author would love your comments. :wink: )

Rules subject to change depending on how the thread goes.

Happy reading! :)

ETA: Guide to Ratings, for anyone who's as confused as I am. Much thanks to everyone who PM'ed me! :)

These are the ones that fanfiction.net uses: http://www.fictionratings.com/guide.php

Others may follow movie or TV ratings:
http://www.mpaa.org/FlmRat_Ratings.asp
http://www.tvguidelines.org/ratings.asp

Some use these terms, which seem to be found more in certain pockets of fandom than others: http://littlecalamity.tripod.com/Text/Dictionary.html

These are just guidelines. I personally don't care what you use, so long as you warn with something (that most people will understand) when necessary.

well, I have to start recomending some must-read-ones:

The Lion and The Lamb
by Alphie
Twilight
Characters/ratings/warnings: Everybody mentioned in twilight till "The meadow"/rated T/Don't think there are any warnings
summary/why you should read this
This is twilight from Edwards perspective. It is wonderfully written, and let's you in Edwards mind quite magnificently. Unfortunately it isn't finished yet.

Awakenings
by pelirroja
Twilight
Characters/ratings/warnings: Carlisle, Esme, Edward/rated T/No warnings
summary: Carlisle and Esme's story. Carlisle POV.
Why should you read this: This is also wonderfully written. There aren't many Carlisle/Esme stories out there and this is one of the best (if not the best)

Peonies
by sillybella AKA silly_bella
Twilight
Characters/reatings/warnings:
Bella, Edward, Alice, Jacob, Emmett, Rosalie, Jasper, Esme, Carlisle, Sam
Summanry: AU: Jacob never helped Bella guess what he was, she learned the truth another way. Bella didn't jump of the cliff. Edward never came back. This is the story of what happened to Bella and Edward(and the rest of the twilight-characters for that matter).
Why should you read this? This story has another twist than other stories with the same plotline. This combined with the fantastically writing style is a story you must read.

I'll come back with more tomorrow :wink:

Title: Darkest Hour (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3572855/1/)
Author: Nayame
Fandom: Twilight
Characters: All the Cullens, Edward, Bella/Rated:T
Summery:Edward, Jasper, Carlisle, Rose and Emmett went hunting but something went terribly wrong. What happened so that Edward has red eyes now? And what about Bella's reaction? Will she be able to forgive him?/This is a fanfic with a subject that you don't see very often. The characters were portrayed perfectly, all their characteristics intact. Not to mention, the story line and the dialogue is heart wrenching. She apologises for the angsty-ness of the story, but believe me it was perfect.

Ah, I call them "crack!fic I" and "crack!fic II". :D Thanks for the rec! :)

If anyone wants to PM me with the ratings/warning system they use or point me in the general google direction (as I've just realized we may not all use the same terminology, e.g. I don't know what "T" means), I can add the list to the first post, so everyone knows what the letters and other abbrev. stand for. Thanks!
