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.

Have a completely mixed bag of wonderful fanfic in (relatively) rare fandoms and pairings!

The Hawk Killer by [personal profile] glitterburn
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 by bookesque
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 by cm(mumblemutter)
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, by [community profile] papersky, and
Elf Insurance by [personal profile] stakebait
Origfic poems based on misread spam - funny, witty and all-around lovely!

These Bonds are Yours by olavina
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 (and sequels Wait and See and Come and Go with Me) by kalena
Chuck, Chuck/Casey
Casey hits upon a sure-fire way to keep the asset loyal and calm: sex. Everything would be going perfectly, too, if Casey weren't getting distracted.

They Say of the Elves, by brancher
Lord of the Rings, Legolas/Gimli
The hazards of intercultural relationships. Sweet and poetic and funny, all at the same time.

(Repost, this time with a link to the vid. Sorry, I don't know why the embed code keeps vanishing on me. Argh.)

This is one of the funniest fanvids I've seen in quite a while. I can't say anything about why it's so funny without spoiling it, but it's short, and you don't have to know (or like) X-Men: First Class to appreciate it - so if you have 3.5 minutes to spare, just trust me and have a look. :-)

I should do a panfandom rec post with my favorite vids one of these days.

After a long search, I have at last found high-quality pictures of Winnetou and Old Shatterhand! And I want to share them - only partly because I harbor a vague hope that someone will feel inspired to make icons, which I will then be able to snag. *g*

Warning! This is picspam of the worst kind. Dial-up users beware.

WTF? I have no idea who these people are. Explain yourself, woman! )

OMG! Yes, I know who these people are. Take me directly to the pictures! )

Gah. I've managed to misplace an excellent Saiyuki story that I wanted to recommend to [profile] solo____   - and I'm having a complete blackout concerning its title and author. Maybe one of you knows the story I mean and can point me in the right direction?

It was a very, very well-written, dark short story that's told in reverse, starting out with Sanzo shooting someone and going back in time in several steps to show how and why this event occured.

ETA: Yay, found it! [personal profile] cicer recognized the description, even though it turns out I'd twisted things around a bit in my mind.

The story I was looking for is "Down, Down, My Friends; We're Going Home" by [personal profile] harukami. If you like Saiyuki and haven't read this story yet - and if you don't mind a bit of darkness - it's definitely a story not to be missed! It's simply amazing.
