I have a few different rec lists, so here is a handy-dandy post linking you to all of them. Be warned, I am a huge fan of smut and almost all of my recs are rated R or NC-17, so if you are looking for lower-rated fics, this is not the place for you. This is also almost exclusively slash pairings, though every once in awhile a het pairing manages to sneak its way in there.

I've recently started dabbling in fanfic writing, so if you're interested, you can find that HERE.

If you are curious about my likes/dislikes/preferences in fic because you want to make me something (or because you're just nosy), you can find those HERE.

Several months ago I started thinking about my favorite fanfics. Obviously my rec lists are basically just lists of my favorite fics, but even among those, I have my favorites. The ones I read again and again, the ones I read when I need comfort, or want to feel some gut-punch feels, or want to roll around in the meant-to-be love. I decided that it was necessary to come up with a list of my most favorite of fics across all of the fandoms I read in. This was poor decision on my part. Six months later and I've finally finished, and narrowing things down was a bit more harrowing than anticipated. I ended up with almost as many fics on the honorable mentions list as I did on the Actual list, but some things can't be helped. I figured getting this up for Rectober was an admirable goal, and I'm happy I managed to get this done.

The more I've read in a fandom, the more difficult it was to narrow down, so I had an especially hard time with Harry Potter and Teen Wolf in particular. I tried to narrow it down by only letting myself chose one from a category (one creature!fic, one post-hogwarts era, etc). It was hard. Also, keep in mind that these are 100% personal opinion and totally subjective. I like what I like.

So, here they are, Grace's 25 most-favorite fics! AKA What I would bring to read on a desert island. :D

I play around in a lot of different fandoms and I try to check in every month or so and see if anything new has been written or if there are any must-read fics I missed the first time around. I didn't read too much in these fandoms in the past month or so, but what I read, I liked! :D

The John Blake/Bane pairing from The Dark Knight Rises is actually a completely new fandom for me. One of my favorite Sterek authors, Circe6, mentioned that she had written a Blake/Bane fic, and I adored Joseph & Tom together in Inception (as evidenced by my love of Arthur/Eames) and I liked the movie, so I thought I would give it a go. Definitely an interesting pairing with a lot of darker fics. Not a ton written for them (not surprising since they never actually had any screen time together....), but there were a few fics that I really enjoyed.

I was reading all over the place this month. Just a few fics here and there spread across many fandoms. Though the majority of my time has been devoted to [livejournal.com profile] hd_tropes (I think I only have 2 or 3 lefts to read!) and indulging in my new Kirk/Spock Star Trek obsession. :D

Game of Thrones started this month and I have to admit....I haven't watched a single episode yet. It's one of those shows that I'm rarely in the mood for, but once I start watching I get into it. I'll catch up eventually, but in the meantime, I have fanfic! :)

Season 4 of Game of Throne is on April 6th and I could not be more excited! I'm finally all caught up on season 3 and I have been reading some fanfic to hold me over. Can't wait to see the second half of book 3 come to life! Here are a few fics I enjoyed reading in March, all featuring one of the Stark girls :)

This is one of those fandoms that I check into periodically and see if anything new has been written that catches my eye. Again, because of the setting of the books, I find it really difficult to get into Modern AU's since they tend to air on the OOC side. I didn't read too many fics this month, but here are a few I enjoyed.

Day 9

In your own space, rec at least 3 fanworks you thought you wouldn't like (because they weren't your fandom or they pushed against your boundaries or you thought you just wouldn't be interested) but you ended up loving.


There are a ton of fics I can rec here, but I managed to stick to three! And they are some of my all-time favorites!
