Once upon a time, a long time ago, [livejournal.com profile] vibrantharmony bought my rec set services for [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti. I was given the following prompt:
begin quote Could I get a multifandom rec list? I'm into Merlin, Psych, and SGA (and Smallville and Doctor Who, from your minor list), so any combination from those fandoms would be awesome. As for a prompt, I love funny fics, not crackfic necessarily but more just amusing things or unusual situations. end quote

And here, only an age later, is that rec set. I have at least a few recs in all of the listed fandoms and I threw in some crossovers for good measure. This is mostly fic with the occasional podfic. I am very very sorry that this has taken this long to be finished! I hope you find some new friends in this batch! Thank you for your donation!


ETA: [View this entry with the cuts intact (ie: hiding things)]


Doctor Who, which also includes Torchwood and Captain Jack Harkness**: 3 fics, 1 podfic
**I treat him as his own fandom because, well, it seemed to make sense at the time :)

Author Recs

Three authors. I wanted to rec many more things by these authors than I possibly could, so I'll call them out specifically. )

At long last, here is my Shawn/Gus rec post! Sorry it took so long, on top of everything else, my bookmarks were even more nonexistent that normal, so it took some time to track things down. I'm also sure I missed some, being as how I am a forgetful Fish. But at the end of my nine fic recs there's a link to a nice meta which itself contains recs, so you have hope for even more fic. :)

I can't remember what's next on my to do list for reccing, I think it might be "Wincest I read despite being bothered by incest". Which, honestly, is a lot more fic than I had expected (I've already mentally broken it down into two sets) (what does this mean, boys and girls? It means I suck at abiding by my own boundaries when I hear the call of an interesting story. It also means I'm learning to use the back button.). But that one may or may not get interrupted by a Yuletide rec set. So I guess stay tuned for your standard upcoming random rec set?

9 stories and 1 meta/reclist. Psych, Shawn/Gus )

You may have noticed that this isn't Psych fic. That's because I'm, well, flaky and also still recovering from the pre-holiday-time rush. I'm still hoping to have it finished before I start my next Psych fic (that'd be by mid-Jan), but we'll see. But in celebration of the fact that my brain is currently half-functional I decided to give you a rec list composed of things that I don't normally rec. Whee? This is perhaps a bit more scattered than one of my normal sets, but then again, my recs are normally fairly scattered, so maybe it's just average :)

Not Fanfic Things
Pro-fic things that you might like! )

Canon things
two episodes which satisfy my fannish heart, plus reviews thereof. AND! The ever-important question of 'what episodes satisfy your fannish heart'? )

Meta
This is one new thing and two old things which I have previously recced on my journal but haven't put here (as I haven't decided what my policy is on reccing meta here, especially stuff that properly speaking isn't fannish meta so much as cultural meta, which all of these are).

three links to cultural meta )

Fannish things
podbang (long podfics), an SPN-crossover comment-fic meme, and a Psych fic fest )

Completely unrelatedly, I have a [DreamWidth] invite. Would anyone like it?

ETA (29 Dec 2009): Two things to add:
One more episode rec and one fannish meta )

Reposting my recs from [livejournal.com profile] spngenlove week 14.

Theme: Free For All
[First day of posting] and [the tag].

This month the theme at the comm is H/C with focus on various characters. Which isn't quite my cuppa. So I think I'm going to be focusing on reccing other fandoms this month. Current in-progress rec list: rare fandoms! After that, either Star Trek Reboot (which everyone and their uncle has already recced), or Psych (with an emphasis on Shawn/Gus), or Sentient!Atlantis (because I've missed SGA fic!), Wincest-I-can-read (okay, it's SPN but it's not gen), or Harry Potter, or something else that strikes my fancy. Feel free to tell me which you'd prefer :)

9 fics (incl. 1 podfic), 3 crossovers with: Star Trek Reboot, Psych, Doctor Who )

Look what I found lying around in my 'to be posted' folder!

I have a shiny new fandom and it makes me ever so happy. So now I shall share it with you!

*offers up Leverage*

*you may commence with the ooh-ing and aaaah-ing now*

*everyone ooh's and aaah's*

The show is Ocean's 11 crossed with The A Team and Robin Hood as a TV show. If you actually know anything about the topic of the week, you'll likely find something that makes you yell at the screen 'it doesn't work like that!', but that's okay, you're not watching it for accuracy, anyway. You're watching it because there's loads of great banter and lots of silly faces.

Sidenote about episode ordering-- evidently S1 episodes were shown out of chronological order on TV, but they're in the right order on the DVDs. So depending on which scheme for numbering the episodes the author uses, an episode number might refer to one of two episodes. In cases where it's obvious which episode the author meant, I'll add the name of the episode. If I have to refer to a list of episodes to figure out the relevant episode, well, that's (a) clearly not much of a spoiler and (b) too much work. In that case, I'll just report the episode number as given by the author.

Character list/description. Cut for spoilers for 'The Lost Heir Job' (aka the episode at the end of the summer season of season 2.) )

My policy on how I do my recs (including for things like warnings and spoilers) can be found at [my policy post], for those interested.

Ten billion Leverage fics. Or maybe only 17. I'm not exactly sure, I think I lost track around number six. )

Leverage seems to get lots of crossovers. Some of it seems to be the shared last names thing (Spencer seems to be popular on TV, which gets you Psych and NCIS, at least), some of it is the "we're both running cons" thing (that gets you SPN and Psych and the Stargates*), and then there's the "we're running a con and the law notices to some degree" (which gets you every procedural show ever, plus the Stargates). And then there's whatever other crossover the author can make work.

*not that the Stargates are running cons so much as they are full of massive secrecy and bad cover stories, which just happens to smell the same as running a con.

Crossovers! SPN, SGA, and Psych. Only a half dozen thousand fics this time. (Give or take a bit) )

Hmmm, looking over this rec list I can spot some themes that evidently tickle my fancy for this show. Also, where are the longer fics? Is it just that the fandom's new (this is by far and away the earliest I've ever gotten into a fandom) and they haven't had time to be written yet, or am I not finding the longer works, or is Leverage tending to produce shorter stories?
