Because fandom is an odd and ciruitous beast, the next installment of the Favorite Authors Project is postponed and you're getting a new rec list today! The fabulous Jenny of Reading the End, the blog and the podcast, had a guest appearance on Fangirl Happy Hour with the inimitable Renay, also of the delightful and Hugo-nominated Lady Business blog. That's...a lot of fannish awesomeness all wrapped together. Anyway! Jenny mentioned on FGHH that she loves high school AUs and because I'm such a giving person --

-- to which Jenny responded

and thus a rec list was born. Here are ten of my favorite high school AUs.

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 )
