This is a list of fic that I wouldn't necessarily call my best (because what is objectivity), but more on the side of my favorites, except more coalesced and excluding original fiction, since I'm not posting that on the internet anymore. Put simply, it's the list of "if I wanted you to read my own fic, this is where I'd like you to begin" because, I mean, I have a lot of stories on my AO3 and it can be hard to navigate. And while all the fics I have up are there for one reason or another, sometimes my fics are simply better than others, you know?

It's important for me to note that I mostly write short-form fic, though it's not my specialty, just a commonality (and, if we're being honest, a comfort zone.) I am capable and have written long-form fic before, and this list is a decent mixture of both, I like to think.

A list of my absolute, absolute favorite fics that I love all equally and at maximum capacity for a variety of reasons, over my many years of reading fanfiction on the internet. Definitely not a "best of" list - which can't be qualified, anyway - but more that everything on this list hits me in all the right places, and at the right time(s).

Look, I even made a banner.

this list may or may not be disastrously outdated considering it was first on tumblr )

(A post that I've made before and deleted, but with thoughts that I still want to preserve and display. Thus.)

Rec lists are fun! Rec lists are my lifeblood. Not really, but it gives me a lot of satisfaction to display a list of things - fic, in this case - that I want other people to enjoy as much as I have enjoyed them. It also gives me a lot of satisfaction to see myself on rec lists. Everyone wins, in this sense.

As usual, I have opinions on logistics, semantics, and functional reasoning when it comes to reccing and making rec posts. Think of this as just gentle suggestions for why or why not I'm particularly for or against certain elements of rec lists.

Basics that I think every rec list should have per fic:
  • Title
  • Link to fic
  • Rating, or at least a mention in particular if a fic is NSFW/NC-17/Explicit
  • A summary, addendum, or note of some sort advertising why a fic should be read. This can include the author-given summary of the fic and nothing else.
Hopefully we can agree on these. And then we can move onto my actual opinions...

because I always have too much to say )

Wow, another self-rec post! WHO IS SURPRISED.

This is all relative to their respective years. Funnily enough, I'm pretty good at remembering how I felt about certain stories at certain times. This, like the rest of this list, should not be much of a surprise.
