International Fanworks Day

I missed it. ┬á­čśŤ ┬áBlame a sleep hangover; three-day weekends always verstrudle* my sleep schedule. ┬áBut I’m putting up a few recs anyway.

the instinct to your charm by Sorrel–Jupiter Ascending, Jupiter/Caine. ┬áA look at the movie through Caine’s eyes. ┬áNot quite the usual characterization for him, and all the more delightful for it. ┬áMy favorite JA fic by far, and I wish she would write the sequel she was considering, though I think she’s moved on from the fandom (alas).

The Roger and Hyacinth series by Cincoflex–Harry Potter with OCs. ┬áTwo new students at Hogwarts post-Harry who become friends. ┬áThe HP world is so rich, and so open to in-depth exploration; it’s a pity this hasn’t got the attention it deserves.

The Original Naked Quidditch Match by Anya (Evilgoddss on FF.net)–Harry Potter again. ┬áThis thing is legendary, and hilarious; be warned, it was written before the series was completed, and is not what I’d call safe for work or small children.

Chicago Winter by Celli–UC: Undercover, and aren’t we hearking back with this! ┬áTalk about small fandoms. ┬áThis is a quick, charming little piece that I think Donovan himself would have approved of.

Cardinality by Mossley–CSI: Las Vegas, GSR. ┬áMossley is a legend among GSR fans; she seems to have withdrawn from the grid, which is too bad, but her fic lives on. ┬áHer casefiles were unmatched, and this is one of her best and still a favorite of mine. ┬áTrigger warning for lots and lots of blood, though. ┬áHeh, this story is how I knew what the docs were talking about when they put me on warfarin…

 

*This is probably spelled wrong, but my dad (from whom I got it) hasn’t given me a spelling I can find online.
