Hey, guys, it's that time again!  This comm lives and breathes, based on our Rec'cers, so please volunteer!

This entry will be open to volunteers through September 30th.

Comment with the username you'll be using to rec and the category you want.  Choose a category from the list below or select a more rare category that has been used in the past. If you want to rec a category that is not on the list below or in Memories, please feel free to ask.  (Memories have been loaded in here at DW, so you no longer need to refer to them at LJ.)  Remember that you may volunteer for a category that isn't listed.   

By signing up, you are committing yourself to reccing at least two (preferably four) stories in that category during the month of October. September reccers may only sign up for next month after posting their minimum two recs for this month.

Please note that we are no longer asking reccers to check the Memories before choosing which stories to rec. If you have a good fic to rec, go for it! The FAQ and rec template, with detailed instructions, can be found here.

Why This Must Be Read: These stories are at times painful, always intriguing, often surprising, and really well written. In this series of might-have-beens that (sometimes thankfully) never were, Cofax gives us a mundanely flawed future instead of tragedy, worst case scenarios, and, ultimately, hope and thanksgiving. It's a great read, and thought provoking.

Fandom: inception
Title: i know (but i am not resigned)
Pairing/Character Focus: mallorie 'mal' cobb
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Skoll
What makes this a gem:

Dom thinks that they have woken. Mal knows better, and it terrifies her.


i know (but i am not resigned) is another 'mal was right' au, which looks at mal's point of view of being trapped in a dream because of fear, because of what once was love.

we see mal's quiet fear grow into a roar too loud to ignore as she watches dom cling to shadows while they wait for a train that never comes. until mal eventually decides to create her own form of inception, planting inside dom's mind a horror so great that he'll have no choice but to wake up.

Fandom: Power Rangers (1993-97)

Title: End of the Rainbow

Pairing/Character Focus: None, background Tommy Oliver/Kimberly Hart and Adam Park/Tanya Sloane

Author: Jennifer Bigley ([personal profile] sailorzeo on LJ; dormant since 2008)

What makes this a gem: Power Rangers generally is a happy fandom; while you get your share of drama and angst, it's rare that there's a truly dark fic. "End of the Rainbow" probably comes closest, as it's a story of the Rangers perishing one by one until the original team -- Jason, Kimberly, Billy, Zack and Trini -- see no way out than following their fallen comrades into the Great Beyond. (Yes, that's a trigger warning for voluntary death!)

The story (series?) is set within "Power Rangers Turbo" and each chapter is dedicated to one particular Ranger, starting with the youngest and newest Ranger, Justin Stewart. The last character-specific chapter belongs to Tommy Oliver, who ended up being the longest-serving (if you include PR:Dino Thunder). The last two chapters tell of how the original Rangers end and how Zordon takes revenge for the destruction of his protegés. It's poignant and sad, quite unlike any other story I've read in the fandom, and wasn't well-known even back then.

Jennifer started a more optimistic sequel featuring the "Space" Rangers -- made possible because that was the first season where the whole cast of actors was changed yet still retained a connection to the previous series by keeping the setting in Angel Grove. Sadly, she abandoned that particular subverse after only two chapters. While EotR used to be posted to various PR archives in its day, Jen's own site, the now-defunct "Gridmaster's Castle", is the only place where it can be found nowadays -- and even that only via the WaybackMachine.

Hi all, I am looking for a fic I read a long time ago where:
-Thor is in a relationship with Jane living on Earth
-he walks the streets at night
-mourns his brother until one night he sees a man that looks just like Loki
he follows him
-This man/Loki, is a prostitute
-They start a relationship
-Eventually Thor and the avengers fight ... can't remember what but leads Loki to remember who he was and
-Thor realizes that it was Loki all along
...something like that.
Can anyone please help me find this fic, been wanting to read it again for the longest time

Why This Must Be Read: A classic early team story where someone is hurt and lost and the earnest Captain, the cranky Colonel, and the somewhat confused Jaffa come together to rescue him. Yes, it's the one with the ducks.

Fandom: Yuri!!! on Ice
Title: who can sing both high and low
Pairing/Character Focus: Otabek Altin/Yuri Plisetsky (Yuri-centric)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] infiniteandsmall
What makes this a gem:
It’s startling to watch videos of his practices and see angles where he’d seen straight lines, broad shoulders where he’d seen a waist that had made him think sometimes, in a cool quick flash, girl.
Yuri on Ice takes place in a world without homophobia, and a couple fanwriters have taken that idea and run with it: why not consider it a world without transphobia as well? What if you tell a story about someone figuring out their gender, and the only difficulty they face is in finding the right version of themselves? This is that story for Yuri Plisetsky, who's now eighteen, a lot taller and broader, and starting to miss the days when he was encouraged to be pretty. The narrative voice is perfectly suited to the story; it's vivid and opinionated and gentle, all at once. And the compassion in Yuri's relationships with the important people in his life is like a balm to the soul. As a bonus, I really love this version of Otabek, who is warm and patient and wry and shows pictures of Yuri to his mom.

This is the second story in a series, but it stands alone pretty easily--you get all the context you need in the first couple paragraphs. That said, of course, the rest of the series is well worth reading too!

(Hi mods! Could I get an Otabek/Yuri tag for this post? Thanks!!)

Fandom: Haikyuu!!
Title: bystander
Pairing/Character Focus: Ennoshita Chikara/Futakuchi Kenji
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] harklights
What makes this a gem: You know when a fic leaves such a lasting impression on you that it gives you chills each time you reread it? This is one of those fics. Playing off Ennoshita's canonical interest in film, this fic takes it to the next level and makes him an art student and filmmaker, with Futakuchi simply someone who's wandered off the street and into his exhibition. The ensuing conversation between two people who've just met is one of the most powerful pieces of dialogue I've ever read, full stop. It's intelligent without being too academic, challenging without being overwhelming. Just... really clever writing.
