First of all, I really want to rec my gift this year! Muchacha is a really awesome Machete fic about Sartana and Luz. I think the author did a really great job of characterizing both of them :DDD

More recs under the cut...20th Century Boys, ArchAndroid, Homestuck, Iron Giant, Malcolm in the Middle, The Outsiders, Scott Pilgrim, Skip Beat, Static Shock, Strindberg and Helium, Suikoden III )

Anyway, I'm still reading, but I figured I'd drop these recs off for now :)

This is kind of preliminary; this year I have six fandoms I want A LOT, and so even though these are the four I've initially chosen, depending on how many other people request them, I may switch one of them out for Hidden Fortress or Yu-Gi-Oh the Abridged Series, which are the other two fandoms I really want this year. (I'll delete this note when signups close.) But for now, the list is...

The Arch Android, Glass Mask, Machete, Delaney's Triton )

And that's it for now!

jetamors: Azula is plotting something (Azula has a cunning plan.)
1. Yuletide noms are open! It looks like this year they're getting rid of the franchise rule and the first-year rule, so probably no Inception, but the lesser-written Final Fantasy games will finally be allowed in.

Your current nominations are:

Glass Mask
Hidden Fortress
Janelle Monae - The ArchAndroid (album)
Machete
Samuel R Delany - Triton
Yu-Gi-Oh The Abridged Series


Now I have to somehow figure out which four I'm going to actually request, which won't be easy.

2. I'm doing Nanowrimo this year (hopefully); if you are too, you can friend me on the site. I'm shooting for goofy space opera, still trying to decide whether I'll post my story to this journal. Also I need to come up with a name for the main character.

3. Could someone maybe beta an Undercovers AU? I know a few flisters watch it.

Yuletide recs - second batch

Got kind of sidetracked by Twelve Kingdoms novel translations, but I still have a bunch more Yuletide fics to rec. I've only incidentally read the Yuletide Madness stuff, and still haven't gotten to a lot of the fairy tales, but I figured this would be a good place to drop off another batch of recs.

Fandoms are Anastasia, Catch-22, Chrono Trigger, Community, Earthsea, The Handmaid's Tale, Howl's Moving Castle, Hurog Series, I Am Maru, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, Let the Right One In, Leverage, Like Water for Chocolate, Lilo and Stitch, The Lion King, Little Women, and Submachine )

And with that, I am going to go play the new KH game for a while, and then maybe read some fic about magical black unicorns and the rulers who love them and/or go to sleep. I have more recs in Delicious, but I'll post them tomorrow.

Yuletide recs - first batch

I feel like I'll be reading fic for the rest of my life... dunno if that's good or bad. You can read everything I've been bookmarking under my yuletide tag in Delicious, albeit with minimal information. I'm kind of hitting that fic fatigue point where I can't enjoy stuff I would usually like, so I figured this would be a good time to stop and do some recs. At some point, when the server load has gone down some, I'll have to go back and comment on all of these; but for now I'll settle for drawing attention to them.

First off, I want to rec the really awesome Kill Bill fic that was written for me: A Battle Without Honor and Humanity! It's an awesome fic about Nikki Green (Bell in the fic, she takes her mother's name) gets her revenge against Beatrix... with BB being her path in. The prose is fantastic, Nikki is just amazing, and I just really love everything the author did with this fic.

Now for the other recs!

Fandoms are Aladdin, Aliens, Beauty and the Beast, Black Lagoon, Bridge of Birds, Calvin and Hobbes, Community, Dinocomics, Fairy Tales, Futurama, Homestar Runner, Monster, Mulan, Oregon Trail, Princess Tutu, Public Service Announcements, The Simpsons, Skip Beat, Twelve Kingdoms, Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, and Yotsubato )

And now off to do something else and then read and rec some more. I haven't even touched Leverage yet.

Yuletide Recs

Happy Boxing Day, everyone!

I spent most of yesterday either doing family stuff, or devouring Yuletide fics. First of all, the one that was written for me :DDDD

My Yuletide gift is Happy Birthday, Miles, which is a Vorkosigan fic. I wanted something featuring Mark and/or the Koudelkas; they're some of my favorite characters, but not much fic is written about them. (Well, not that there's much Vorkosigan fanfic at all.) Anyway, this one is really cute and awesome; Mark arranges a surprise party for Miles. This being Mark and Miles and Barrayar, there are a few minor disasters, but thanks to the magic of Pizza, everything ends well :D

There were a lot of other good fics in this batch as well! Some of the ones I enjoyed...

Haruhi, Ptutu, Monster, Claymore, Skip Beat, Mulan, Saved by the Bell, Calvin and Hobbes, Winnie the Pooh/Discworld )

So, that pretty much comes to the end of what I've read and enjoyed so far. There's still lots of other stuff I want to read: the other Vorkosigan fics, the Wall.E fics, the fics for Sunshine, and whatever else people are reccing that sounds good.

Urk, has it really been a year since I've posted in this journal? :/ Anyway, a few things:

1) If you're an American, GO VOTE TOMORROW, if you haven't already.

2) Forgot to crosspost it to LJ, but I finished my fic Yo Ho a little while back; you can read the last chapter, "A New Picture Book", at FFN. Dunno if I'm all that happy with it, but at least it's over.

3) I'm doing Yuletide this year! \o/

Cut for stuff only my Secret Santa writer will care about )

4) I keep thinking I should start writing manga reviews for stuff that I like, especially the more obscure stuff. But I don't think I'm very good at articulating that kind of thing; there are a few exceptions, but generally my reactions to manga can be fully summed up in emoticons. I guess I could just do a lot of picspam...
