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: copperbadge
, 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 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.)( pulling the puzzles apart )
