In this very special edition of Fic Rec Monday, I'm sharing my fifty favorite fics from the last year. Like last year, I discovered a lot of great older fics, but this list contains only fics posted or finished in 2016 (no works in progress). There are a handful of fics from the last week of 2015 for logistical reasons. Here we go: 50 fics in 16 fandoms. )

It's my third Fic Rec Monday installment of the Favorite Authors Project, where I put together a rec list with works by specific fic writers instead of by theme or fandom. This week we're talking about [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat, who has been writing in most of my favorite fandoms for years (and also helped found the AO3, so whoo!) and still manages to do that while vidding as well as writing and publishing original work. Some people just don't sleep, I guess?

I'm sharing twenty-five of my favorite fics by [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat. (Keep in mind these are just my favorites. They also fic for fandoms I don't read often, like: Bandom, Supernatural, Person of Interest, etc.) Enjoy!

I've meant to put together a solely Harry Potter or Harry/Draco rec list for ages and finishing my full reread of the series plus the hilarity that is The Cursed Child finally kicked me into gear. So here you go. Fifty of my favorite Harry/Draco fics. Literally none of these fics are Cursed Child compliant. Just FYI.

you're going to have SO MUCH READING TO DO )

Okay, friends. I am a huge Harry Potter fan. This is maybe an understatement and also probably news to no one. You are also probably a huge Harry Potter fan. I was really excited about Cursed Child. And I just finished rereading the entire series (for the first time since Deathly Hallows came out because THAT EPILOGUE WAS A GREAT BIG PILE OF NO) so the bar was pretty low considering Deathly Hallows is my least favorite and I was just excited for new Harry Potter.

Friends. Friends this is not good. Below the cut are the reactions I had while reading, uncensored and unedited.

Okay, friends. I'm going to be trying something new for the next month or two. Instead of lists by theme or fandom I'm going to do recs of my favorite works by specific fic writers.

We're starting with one of my perpetual faves, Mr. BNF himself: [personal profile] copperbadge. [personal profile] copperbadge (also [personal profile] sam_storyteller, or Sam Starbuck) writes fanfic and original fiction. Sam's professional writing site is populated with really interesting thoughts on fanworks and the writing process (and free ebooks!) and all sorts of cool stuff. His Tumblr is home to some amazing features, like job hunting advice and the hilarious RDJ advises Chris Evans (and others) on their life choices. I recommend just moseying over to Sam's Tumblr, because it's always entertaining and their are tons of fun and helpful links.

Sam also runs a weekly Radio Free Monday post, where fannish types can spread the word about causes, fundraising, cool projects, etc. It's a long-running project done simply for the love of the community and I think that says a lot about how awesome [personal profile] copperbadge is as both a fan and a person.

Also? A very, very gifted writer. I'm sharing 20 of my favorite copperbadge fics. (Keep in mind these are just my favorites. Sam also writes fic for fandoms I don't read often, like: Torchwood, Discworld, White Collar, House, etc.)

This week's Fic Rec Monday is all about fake dating/relationships/marriages and it's 100% Claire's fault. She quite innocently asked if I had any fake married recs and I said I'd do some digging in my bookmarks. I didn't find as many fics for her favored fandoms as I would've liked, but I did fall down an AO3 black hole, so someone should benefit from that monstrous time suck. Here are some of my favorite fake relationship fics.
tropey goodness ahead )

In this very special edition of Fic Rec Monday, I'm sharing my fifty favorite fics from the last year. 2015 was a strange year for me, fanfic reading-wise, because I wasn't consuming much in the way of visual media (which tend to be my main fandoms) and I spent a lot of time reading older fics from familiar and new-to-me fandoms. I discovered a lot of great stuff through backlist diving, but this list contains only fics posted or finished in 2015 (no works in progress). There are a handful of fics from the last two weeks of 2014 because YULETIDE. Alright, enough yammering: 50 fics in 23 fandoms. Let's go.

The 100, B99, Check Please!, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Hannibal, Harry Potter, The Hobbit/LoTR, Hockey RPF, The Hunger Games, Jurassic World, Kings, SVU, Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Martian, Marvel Comics, MCU, Miss Fisher, Scandal, Teen Wolf, Tortall, X-Men )
