aelfgyfu_mead: Aelfgyfu as a South Park-style cartoon (Winter Soldier)
( May. 26th, 2014 05:10 pm)
I keep meaning to post and not doing it! I will try to make some shorter posts instead of the kind of longer round-up that I'm not likely to finish.

I discovered that my fanfic site The Mead Hall went down, probably in late November 2012. I have been paying it so little mind that on the rare occasions I have looked in the last 18 months, I have found it not working and made a mental note to talk to Brilliant Husband and then promptly lost the mental note. I have done this at least twice before I realized that it's really down! On the other hand, my ownership of the site expires in July, and I'm not paying for it again, so I'm letting it go. I am in the process of moving my fanfic all to AO3; you can find me here.

I have 18 stories up now. None of my Primeval or Stargate: Atlantis stories have made it yet, but they will be there; if you want a specific story added that I haven't yet put up, just let me know, and I'll put it at the top of my List of Stories to Move!

Also note that I have given up on writing recommendation posts. I just can't manage to do it. I have been saving up Sherlock stories for a rec post, and I just don't think that's ever going to happen, because I've mostly gone off Sherlock except for stories by a few writers, and I cannot find the motivation to make a post for a fandom where I'm hardly doing any reading. Most of what I did mean to rec, I bookmarked on AO3, so you can go to that link above, click to see my profile, and then find my Bookmarks in the left-hand menu.

Moreover, I suddenly fell into Marvel and Captain America fandom. (Okay, more honestly: Winter Soldier fandom, with healthy sides of Captain America, Sam, and Natasha, though the proportions of those vary.) Aware that I can't manage rec posts, I have begun trying to make slightly fuller summaries of stories I'm bookmarking as recommendations so that not only can I remember them when I look back, but friends can decide whether they might want to read each.

On the downside, I realized yesterday that I appear to have tagged fully half the stories I've bookmarked "friendship," and I suspect I'd have tagged a lot more that way if I'd been tagging for people other than just me when I started making bookmarks. And "friendship" actually describes what attracts me to nearly all these stories, so you might not find it a useful tag if you decide to search my bookmarks.

Behind the cut: a brief summary of Where I Am in Fandom, for those who are curious—and to help me remember what I might want to tackle in individual posts. This list may change as I think of something else I want to remember. Fandoms )
I've tried to mark these s1 & s2; some of the s1 stories have now been jossed, but I had them in my list to rec and didn't get around to them until too late! They're still worth reading!
I'm not differentiating the different s2 episodes.

UPDATE: This entry didn't post right, so I'm trying again. I will add that I have several more stories marked here and there to rec, but some of these have waited since December, and I have been losing track of things.

And I really hope this post posts correctly.

At the start of December, [livejournal.com profile] methylviolet10b asked for prompts for holiday Holmes ficlets. I gave ice.

I am now very happy to send you to "Like Finding Out Santa Isn't Real" (BBC-verse). Go read it!

(I'll have a few more Sherlock fic recs when I get time, but this one shouldn't wait. And it's for ME!)

Happy Boxing Day, y'all!

[livejournal.com profile] kristen_mara wrote me a Primeval fic! (There are a couple of illustrations here, but don't look until you've read the story.)

If you've seen Primeval series 1 and 2, go read the fic. NOW. (Just a friendly suggestion.)

Once again, I waited so long that I probably have two posts' worth of recs. I am no doubt forgetting some things, and I've surely missed others. Please feel free to let me know of anything I might like that I haven't mentioned, and I might pick them up in a later post.

I include small excerpts for longer items; it would not do to include excerpts for any of the poems below or the really short stories. Just trust me and read them.

Stories that make one change to canon )

Here's the big one.

As I said in my previous post (word for word, in fact):
I haven't worried much about ratings because most of what I enjoy is rated G through PG-13 or 15 with a lot of variation in what is considered what; I try to give appropriate warnings. Please let me know if I've left anything out.

Please also let me know if you find these recs helpful. I'm not always sure I'm not speaking primarily to myself, and if these end up being just for my own use, then I'll cut back on why I recommended items and leave out the excerpts.

I've split this round of my BBC Sherlock recs into two parts because I've decided to give a little more about why I recommend these stories (or art or other items, in a few cases) and excerpts where I can. I'm not entirely sure I'm good at excerpting: I have trouble choosing a short passage that will give a feel for the piece without giving away the good bits. (What's wrong with trailers and previews these days is that they give away too much!)

I'm starting with the shorter post. I haven't worried much about ratings because most of what I enjoy is rated G through PG-13 or 15 with a lot of variation in what is considered what; I try to give appropriate warnings. Please let me know if I've left anything out.

For April Fool's Day, I bring you more Sherlock recs. I much prefer gen, as most of you know, but I have a few non-gen in here, too. (Gen unless otherwise labeled.)

Now art by steammmpunk for "Murderous, Co-Dependent": see after reading story.

I realized that a couple of the links were broken in my previous Sherlock fic recs; I think I've fixed those. If you find any are broken in either entry, please let me know!

And feel free to leave suggestions for fics I should read!
