Rectober has been just wonderful. I found some new fandoms, a new pairing I adore and in general some great and lovely fics (art and vids as well). So, thank you, [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore, for this October treat. Thank you [livejournal.com profile] capitu and [livejournal.com profile] raitala again for these awesome banners (I’m going to miss them in my f-list). :D

I wish everyone a happy Halloween– if you are celebrating or not, have a good day and weekend!

Ok, here are some of the fics I managed to read (based on rec posts or recs I got in comments or messages) and loved. I read some more but one can’t love all the things.

Looking at this list I know why I haven’t read as much Career Fair fics as I wanted to. But I did read a lot of things. Be warned this post is going to be long. You'll find H/D recs at its end.

Sometimes people leave a fandom behind, but that doesn’t mean they are writing not as good as they always have. And maybe you are curious and interested enough to take a look at [livejournal.com profile] silentauror’s new playground and its wonderful pairing Sherlock Holmes/John Watson.

Dear f-list,
Today I want to celebrate with you. Last year on the 13th of October I finished the wonderful Turn by [livejournal.com profile] saras_girl for the first time. It wasn’t the first fanfiction I’ve ever read, but it was the first in years, and the first H/D, and the one that let me fall for the boys- hard and irrevocably.
Since then I’ve read Turn fourth times and am currently listening to chapter 12 of the podfic by [livejournal.com profile] mab.

During the last twelve months I’ve read more than 400 H/D fics, a lot of other HP fics (slash and het and everything in between :D) and also some fics from other fandoms. If someone feast on statistics, I counted only the ones with 50 pages or more downloaded on my e-reader, but no re-reads, ficlets or things I read online. Well, if you call me obsessed, you might be right. ;p

So, this is basically an anniversary for me, and as everybody here on LJ was warm and welcoming, and I totally LOVE YOU GUYS, I want to give something back and pay it forward (like [livejournal.com profile] digthewriter, [livejournal.com profile] chibitoaster are currently doing based on [livejournal.com profile] mab's idea):

I am participating in the Pay it Forward initiative: people who comment on this post with "I'm in" will receive a surprise from me at some point in this calendar year in the next 12 months. Anything from a book, a ticket, something home grown or made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise. There will be no warning; when the mood takes me, and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy it will be sent. Copy and paste this to your own journal only if you wish to do so.
I'll screen comments, so if you want to leave your address you may. You might get a postcard or something else in the mail! You can also specify that you'd only like to receive digital gifts by either email or lj post.


As I’m sure, you all read Turn already, I’m reccing Nat’s new story today:

Some of this year's [livejournal.com profile] hp_silencio fics, I really loved to read. They all had a great way of story telling combined with some rare povs. Enjoy!

This rec post isn’t about the light and fluffy fics. It’s about the mighty ones. The ones which are able to shatter your heart, to let tears roll down your face, to make you uncomfortable, to let you sigh deeply, and the ones you can only read in fractions or when you are in a special mood.

(Tsk, no proper rectober post without a lovely banner)

Today I wanted to rec some non-Harry/Draco pairings and had some things in my mind. But then a little innocent post grabbed my attention and I started to have a look at the first results and was blown away by so much creativity.

Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] inell invited everyone for a quick challenge she wanted to do. One just had to leave a comment with a pairing and a short prompt and she would wrote a 5-10 minutes ficlet for it. Sounded great and after some thinking I went and left a prompt. Tbh, you really should have a look at all the results. She really did a great job and all that while being partly knocked out by a cold. Inell, thank you, for all the treats and get better soon!

Go and have a look at her LJ.
You can read hot and witty stuff in some amazing pairings like:

I'm going to try and give two or three recs a week:

  • one for my favourite OTP (Harry/Draco)
  • one for other lovely HP ships
  • and one for other fandoms



Btw, I'm seriously exhausted from choosing one of the three gorgeous rectober banners. Love them all!
