wrote down a history of the Buffy
fandom. And behold, it was hilarious: And y'know, that's just Spike fandom.
Which reminds me of a hankering I've been having ever since I read that Angel: After the Fall
issue that has Kate and Connor meeting over fighting demons in post-apocalyptic L.A. Such a cool premise, and man, that comic did so little with it. Isn't there anybody out there in fandomland who has the burning desire to write this scenario? Possibly throwing Angel into the mix and have a bit of Angel&Connor bonding and Angel/Kate grudgy-friendship-with-UST, too? *puppy look*
^ I'll just throw that prompt out there and call it My Holiday Wish List. ;)
[eta: I'm still mostly unfamiliar with comic canon so I wouldn't mind if it went AU after S5.]
is a new(ish) comm for, well, fanart recs. You can sign up for one month to rec four fanart works in one fandom. Check it out, there have been some great pieces linked already. Like this one
(AtLA (which I still haven't watched)). When I'm not familiar with a source I find myself a lot more willing to check out fanart than fic... takes just a click and a look, after all. I'm gonna rec Fullmetal Alchemist in December.

Ronon's thoughts about Earth, about his friends and the end of the world. It's sparse and efficient, one of those ficlets that say a lot in just a few hundred words. Really beautiful.Four Times Chuck Was a Hero By Being Nerdy

I saved this under INSTA-rec and then Work happened and I couldn't write my rec while the fic was still fresh in my mind. Anyway, it's one of those stories I had to read in one because I didn't want to stop, not because of non-stop action (it's character-driven though the background plot is solid) but because the character's inner life is just that gripping. I really like how the author gets into their heads and where she takes the characters.
