Supernatural Rec List


Despite my rather bitter break-up with Supernatural, I still have pretty fond memories of my time in the Supernatural fandom, which produced (and is probably still producing) so much great fanfiction.

I read primarily gen in the Supernatural fandom, as I’m not and never have been a Wincest shipper. However, Wincest made up such a huge percentage of the fic that was produced during my time in the fandom that it was basically impossible to avoid, so I have some Wincest recs despite not really getting it as a ship. I left the fandom before Dean/Castiel got really popular and don’t remember ever reading any, though I might have. As far as other ships are concerned, I like Sam/Jess and several Girl of the Week ships, especially Sam/Sarah from “Provenance.”

My favorite genres in SPN fanfiction include casefiles, humor, and outside POVs (including crossovers). Because I stopped watching partway through season five, some of these fics will have been Jossed by later developments.

I’ve got over 100 bookmarks of SPN fanfiction alone, so it may take me awhile to sort through all of them to add to this post. Be sure to check back for updates as I add more!

Steve/Bucky Recs List and Other Goodies From the Marvel Cinematic Universe

I’ve been getting increasingly obsessed with Steve/Bucky (aka Stucky) lately, and thought I’d start a small (not so small anymore – oops?) recs post to help keep track of and share some of my favorite fics and vids for the pairing, as well as some other Avengers-related goodies from the Marvel fandom.

As I mentioned in my Marvel movies review, I don’t read comics to any significant degree, so these recs will focus on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

My favorite genres for Steve/Bucky fanfiction include:

  • post-CA:TWS (bonus points for Bucky/Soldier/Asset POV)
  • first kiss and/or first time fics in any era with good UST and pining
  • humor

I like fics in which Peggy, Natasha, Sam, and/or the other Avengers have good characterization and get to be awesome as well. I’m a multishipper, so sometimes this means the fics recced here have past, side, or background pairings other than Steve/Bucky, including Steve/Peggy (my second favorite Steve ship), Bucky/Natasha, Clint/Natasha,  Sam/Natasha, Tony/Pepper, and several OT3s. Just check the tags if you’re easily turned off by certain ships.

If you’re a return visitor and want to see what I’ve added since the last time you were here, the latest additions are marked NEW.

Please note: some of the fics listed here contain content that may be triggering for some people and some contain adult content. Please check tags and ratings carefully before reading, especially if you are underage and/or have any triggers. Also note that I am unable to list PWPs on this page, but you can find my PWP recs on my new fanfiction recs blog Infinite Variation.

My Favorite Battlestar Galactica Fanvids and Other Goodies


I’m a lurker in the Battlestar Galactica (BSG) fandom. I haven’t read much fanfiction, but I’ve been really impressed by a lot of the fanvids, so as long as I’m in a BSG mood, I thought I’d share some of my favorites.

If you’re new to fanvids, they are a type of fanwork that re-edits video clips from existing shows, films, and other videos for fun, love, or meta purposes. Though they are in a legal grey area, I personally believe that they fall under the doctrine of transformative use.

These recs will be heavy on Starbuck, because she is my favoritest, but I’ve also included a mix of other character studies, shipper vids, and general or recruiter vids. Enjoy!
