Fandom Category: Outlander
Pairing: Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser/James Alexander Malcom MacKenzie Fraser
Fic Title: sing me a song
Author: mardia
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/2241909
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit, Set post 1x03
Genre: PWP, post-episode
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Fans of the Outlander series have been waiting a long time for the novels to make it on screen, and most are delighted with the result. This fic picks right up after episode 3 and allows the reader into Jamie's thoughts about Claire. Short, wonderful, and worth the read.

Pairing: Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser/James Alexander Malcom MacKenzie Fraser
Fic Title: i can almost believe i'm almost enough
Author: tosca1390
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/2040522
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Based on the first book, but fitting in perfectly with the show this fic is from Jamie's point of view and allows us to witness him falling in love with Claire. The writing is lovely and in character and sexy as hell. I hope to read more from this author.

Tag woes

Hi folks,

I come to you with a sad story. The community's premium paid time has expired and, as such, we are unable to create new tags.

As I see it, we have three choices:

  1. member donations for premium paid time

  2. delete a lot of existing tags

  3. just don't add new tags



The first option is, of course, the best one in terms of tagging. If we keep up the premium paid time, we can have another 180 tags before we reach the absolute limit. However, it requires money, which not everyone is able or willing to part with.

Option 2 would take a fair bit of work. We have 1820 tags and the maximum for a free account is 1000, so in order to create one new tag we'd have to delete 821 of the current ones. We could start with tags that only have 1 entry — maybe move them to the memories; we could get rid of the fandom tags and just have pairings tags. We could do other things I haven't thought of.

Option 3 is essentially the 'do nothing' option. It's the one I like the least, but it has the appeal of requiring absolutely no effort. :)

So, over to you, [community profile] het_reccers! Please discuss in the comments.

Fandom Category: Bakuman
Pairing: Aoki Ko/Fukuda Shinta
Fic Title: Imperfect Match
Author: thereisafire
Link: Imperfect Match
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/none
Genre: Comedy, Romance
WIP?: no, one-shot at 3,549 words

Why This Must Be Read: Refined Aoki and obnoxious Fukuda don't seem to match at all, but what starts in canon as professional respect turns within to friendship, and this fic takes it one step further. The fic showcases their developing romance in a bumbling and sweet way, for no date with Fukuda would ever contain candlelight dinners and watching operas. If only they were canon, for Aoki/Fukuda is my Bakuman OTP!

[personal profile] shallowness
Fandom Category: North & South (BBC)
Pairing: Margaret Hale/John Thornton
Fic Title: Wiser Today
Author: SummerRed
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2013/works/1069385
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: Post-Canon, Established Relationship, Christmas fic
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's an absolutely lovely Christmassy fic about John and Margaret, still in the can't keep their hands off each other stage, with humour bubbling under it. Also, the author has created the tag 'Married people in love' which I'd love to see take off.

(I'd say this is more based on the BBC adaptation than the book.)
eevilalice: Veronica Mars in black and white (Veronica Mars of course)
[personal profile] eevilalice
I've been reading Veronica Mars fic fervently again since news of the movie, so here be some recs. Enjoy!

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls (side Lilly Kane/Logan Echolls, Veronica Mars/Duncan Kane)
Fic Title: Bait and Switch
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] stainofmylove
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/86168
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Drama, Angst
WIP?: Nope.

Why This Must Be Read: A pre-series AU, this fic offers an alternate version of events in the romantic lives of Logan, Veronica, Lilly, and Duncan leading up to and just after Lilly's death. Logan's note to Lilly and dismissal of Veronica take on a whole new, gut-wrenching meaning.

Fandom Category: Walking Dead (TV)
Pairing: Maggie Greene/Glenn Rhee
Fic Title: A New Empire In Rags
Author: crookedlystacked
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/546032
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Post-Apocalypse, Slice-of-Life, Romance
WIP?: nope

Why This Must Be Read: The premise of this fic is that Glenn finds a Polaroid camera and takes pictures of the new world around him, mostly the "family" of survivors in less-than-grim moments, the few beautiful moments that keep them going. There is, astonishingly, very little Maggie/Glenn fic out there, and this author perfectly captures their dynamic on the show: intimate, playful, secretive or on the sly.

Fandom Category: Princess and the Frog
Pairing: Tiana/Naveen
Fic Title: Diggin' Deeper
Author: raspberryseedz
Link: HERE
Rating/Warning(s):
Genre: Romance
WIP?: WORK IN PROGRESS
Why This Must Be Read: The strongest PAFT stories I've noticed are the self contained, drabbe-esque kinds. raspberryseedz's "Diggin Deeper" really captures the surefire personalities of Naveen and Tiana in snapshots from points during the film or their lives afterward (how Naveen deals with Tiana's career-driven mentality that often leads to sleep deprivation and how Tiana relaxes in the presence of Naveen's carefree energy).

Fandom Category: A Life Less Ordinary (1997)
Pairing: Celine Naville/Robert Lewis
Fic Title: Up and Away
Author: Starlingthefool
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/599848
Rating/Warning(s): M (violence, language, innuendo)
Genre: Action, Comedy, Drama
WIP?: No - 5,493 words (oneshot)

Why This Must Be Read: A brilliant and clever followup to the quirky 1997 movie, starring Ewan McGregor and Cameron Diaz, this fic follows their characters immediately after the events of the film. Robert & Celine go on a jet-setting international honeymoon, only to encounter disappointment, relief, and continued meddling of the ethereal in their business. This author has captured not only the narrative style of the film, but also the complexity of the characters - especially gun-toting Celine, who thinks nothing of putting a few bullets in a few bullies if it means getting her husband back in one piece.

Hey reccers, I'm [personal profile] tree and I'll be one of your mods tonight at [community profile] het_reccers.

I've just gifted the community with 6 months of premium paid time (that's all I had the points in my account for) so that we can continue to add to our fabulously enormous number of tags. At least until we hit 2000, that is.

Thanks for coming along on this adventure and please let us know if you have any questions.

Fandom Category: One Piece
Pairing: Nami/Sanji
Fic Title: The dark blue sea
Author: Violetta Jones (ViolettaJones)
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/432561/chapters/732684
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, graphic sex
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No, complete at 2 chapters, 10,647 words

Why This Must Be Read: Sanji is the notorious wannabe womanizer of the One Piece cast, always chatting up the ladies but never getting anywhere, despite his good looks and smooth style. I'd not considered this interpretation of Sanji's character, but I like it! This fic makes me want to hug both Sanji and Nami, and I'm goo-ily happy for them at the end. To be honest, I'm really reccing it for the lovely observation by Nami about Sanji's expressions. WOW. (Set in the Merry Go, on the Grand Line.)

Mods, can I get tags for fandom and pairing? These characters do not have family names, it's just Nami and Sanji.

November 30, 2012: the original het_reccers livejournal comm has been imported! I don't think that communities can have "mirrored" posts like personal journals, so alas, after today, the two comms will not be linked to each other. Also, none of the Livejournal mods are active on Dreamwidth, including myself. I am looking for mods that can step up to the plate for Dreamwidth and do the due diligence in maintaining it. (Tags, mainly.) The community's challenges (bi-weekly, manifestos, etc...) are still going to be hosted on Livejournal. (Probably exclusively, I suspect.)

Special Reccers: Give a round of applause to [livejournal.com profile] honor_reid for completing her 22 special recs this month! Awesome job! Next up, we've got [livejournal.com profile] riverotter1951 for December.

Also, other admin things of note: [livejournal.com profile] hariboo has been awesome enough to fix the anime pairing tags, so those babies should be good to go in the new tagging policy. Hardcore love for you, Hariboo! If you see any anime tags incorrectly tagged, please be sure to bring it to the attention of one of the mods. (Preferably Hariboo, because she knows anime.)

Also, re: Manifestos. I've made an executive decision just to lock down dates for when they're going to be hosted. Every February and July of each year (and October is reserved for our anniversary special challenges), so things are neatly spread out throughout the year. In February, this year we'll be hosting "Fandom Manifestos" in lieu of our previous challenges that were specific to a pairing or a character. Any fandom, all het recs welcomed within it. It will not be first come, first serve on claiming fandoms, more like an all-you-can-eat buffet. As people will probably ship different things within the same fandom, they'll have a different take on what makes it so awesome, so the blurbs and recs will likely be different. That happens in February.

In July, we'll have Character Manifestos again.

Also, there may or may not be an attempt to create a DW mirror community for this comm, due to popular repeated requests. More info on that as it develops.

Questions, comments, concerns - drop 'em here. In the meantime, start thinking up which fandom you'd like to pimp out to this community in February's manifesto challenge.

I had a great time this month reccing stories. I hope you enjoyed them as well. Thanks for the opportunity!

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Martha Jones/Doctor
Fic Title: 18, Goshawk Avenue
Author: Flaignhan
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3585836/1/18_Goshawk_Avenue
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Friendship, Humor
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 22 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary:Mr and Mrs Jones, they had called themselves. Naturally, the neighbours had begun to gossip. There are a lot of well written fics about the time Martha and the Doctor spent in 1969. I recently read this one and loved it! We get to see what the neighbors thought of the newest addition to the neighborhood. It is a sweet and funny take on Martha and the Doctor's sojorn in 1969 and how that could have changed things between them.

Fic Title: Evolving
Author: RhyannD
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7346782/1/Evolving
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance, Hurt/Comfort, Adventure
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 21 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: This story takes place after the episode Genesis; you know the episode where the crew starts de-evolving. I loved this story, not only because of the delicious h/c but because we finally get to see these two very stubborn people admit their feelings for each other as Jean-Luc helps Beverly while she recovers.

Fandom Category: Revolution
Pairing: Rachel Matheson/Bass Monroe
Fic Title: Try Three
Author: Corycides
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/569744/chapters/1020216
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit, Dub-con warning for the last chapter.
Genre: Angst, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Anyone watching Revolution is aware of the UST between Rachel and Monroe. What is their past? Were they involved? Is there more going on than we are seeing? This fic answers all these questions and comes off as entirely believable in the process.

Fandom Category: Revolution
Pairing: Charlie Matheson/Miles Matheson
Fic Title: What the Water Gave Me
Author: darkling13
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/576896
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit, Incest, Violence
Genre: Angst, Romance, Adventure
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: So many reasons. This is my new favorite Charlie/Miles fic. The author is incredibly talented and her chracterizations are perfect. She manages to capture the sparks that fly between these two and translates it into an amazing fic. Also? If I smoked I would have lit up after reading this. Very hot.


Mods may I have a ship: Rachel Matheson/Bass Monroe tag please? Thank you. <3

I pretty much adore Molly and ship her willy-nilly, but Molliarty is my first love. I've highlighted one excellent story and there are four others under the cut. Consider this a mini-manifesto of a sort. Enjoy!

Fandom Category: Sherlock (BBC)
Pairing: Molly Hooper/Jim Molliarty
FicTitle:Sweet Dreams
Author: [livejournal.com profile] special_schizo
Link: http://special-schizo.livejournal.com/15371.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 for language and general disturbingness, spoilers series 2x01
Genre: bit of angst, bit of dark
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Molly finding her inner strength (and inner darkness) is a common Molliarty theme. This story, set during Scandal in Belgravia, is an excellent example. It is unflinching in portraying Molly's weakness but brilliant in showing her tapping into that fierce core that Molly fans believe in. And it's dark and sexy in a very unexpected way.
