I honestly read RPF very rarely, and usually only if it's been recced to me or written by an author I really love. For me, shipping two characters has less to do with the physical appearance of the actor (though that obviously plays a part) and more to do with the personalities of the characters they play. Their back-stories and their quirks and how that shapes them and their interactions with each other. So I have a hard time getting into RPF because the characters look the same, but they are completely different people, which causes the pairing to lose some of the magic for me.

So this will probably be a fairly sparse recs post. That being said, I have read a few RPF fics that were fabulously written and that sucked me in and I want to keep track of them. This will probably be all Hobrien fics, but I may branch out at some point.

In the Warnings section of each entry I have different tags, so if you are looking for something specific (like "established relationship" for example) just ctrl+f and enter your tag and it should highlight the relevant entries!

The open-pairing [ profile] tw_holidays 2013 Fest collection went live anonymously all at once on Ao3 at the beginning of the month and the authors were just revealed today.

I've actually never followed an exchange fest like this: where the fics aren't released over the course of a few weeks, but all introduced at once. It was a different experience picking through all 60 works and slowly working my way through the ones that caught my eye. To be honest, it felt a little overwhelming, especially since I am following so many different fests this year, and it seemed like like, as a result, I didn't end up reading as many of the fics as I would have if they were posted slowly. But I don't know if that is actually true, or just a weird perception.

Anyway, I digress. The point is, a few of my favorite Stiles/Derek fics from the fest are below, but you should check out the Ao3 collection, because there are a whole lot more fics to look through!
