Day 2In 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.
Have a completely mixed bag of wonderful fanfic in (relatively) rare fandoms and pairings!The Hawk Killer
Onmyouji, Abe no Seimei/Minamoto no Hiromasa
Lovely, long, plotty and wonderfully characterized Onmyouji story that can (and should!) be read as original fiction. Slight AU.
Author's summary: Impoverished provincial nobleman Minamoto no Hiromasa arrives in Heian-Kyo to restore his family’s pride, but meets with resistance at every turn until the eccentric and wealthy Lord Seimei offers to take Hiromasa under his wing. this is not a chick flick
Greek Mythology, Hades/Persephone
Hilarious, wonderfully written, and unexpectedly sweet. Hades falls in love, but is clueless as to what to do about it. The other gods insist on giving advice. This goes about as well as you'd expect, considering that Zeus is the gods' foremost authority and his best trick is turning into a giant animal to abduct his crush.The Death of Girl Number Two
Profit, Gail Koner/Jim Profit
Twisted, disturbing, and sweet in a really disquieting way. Perfect, and perfectly Profit.
Author's summary: Jim Profit needs a wife. Gail doesn't volunteer.My Elf Policy

Teen Wolf, Danny/Jackson
Canon reinterpretation: Jackson comes up with a solution to the Kanima problem. Very short, but absolutely on target, and makes so. much. sense. Dirty Work

The hazards of intercultural relationships. Sweet and poetic and funny, all at the same time.
