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. )

2016 is a massively ridiculous year. My older sister had her baby just after Christmas, so I’ve been spending a lot of time with my adorable nephew and helped them move house. My little sister’s getting married in the fall (this is surely impossible, as they are so young OHMYGOD). I've flown up to Idaho twice, once for a wedding and once for a funeral. I’m still chugging my way through school and I’ll be graduating roughly around the heat death of the universe. Day job is closing for renovation next week, so I’m being shifted to another location (and also looking for something better and closer to home, because no thank you). I’ve joined the teams over at Panels and Book Riot and I’m continuing to tame the slush as a submissions editor for Uncanny Magazine.

Somewhere in there I found a little bit of time to read. A few of my favorite 2016 books aren’t actually out yet, so know that there are definitely going to be some fall/winter releases on my end of year list.

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 )
