First, I received several AWESOME fics. (The high quality of all the fics I received is all the more remarkable when one considers that I went out on the pinch hit list at the deadline.)
( Fic written for me--two Moon is a Harsh Mistress fics and one Caprica fic. )
( More awesome fic from The African Queen to Wall-E )
Second group here, in Aliens, Attack the Block, The Flashman Papers, The Prince of Egypt, and Scarborough Fair.
Mostly from the first half of the alphabet.
( Batman Beyond, Black Beauty, Dragonriders of Pern, I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, Kencyrath, The Song of Achilles, Vorkosigan Saga )

Should we post recs on this community, and if so, how?
Individual rec posts or pointer posts by community members
One master post, to which community members comment with their recs/pointers
Daily master posts, to which community members comment with their recs/pointers
The LJ community posts are sufficient for me
Yuck, recs, I don't want them anywhere
My opinion can not be constrained by your radio buttons, so I am commenting.
Incidentally, the two most recent recs posts on LJ (and possibly the first as well, though I didn't make that one so I didn't get the notification) made the top 25 LJ post list.
If people want a master post (or more than one), I'll happily make one tomorrow (or later today - depends on how much response this poll gets, and how quickly) unless someone beats me to it. If it looks like people would just like to see individual recs posts - then please, start posting recs!
And the recs have it (maybe...) - post 'em! Please use the 'recs' tag so they can be filtered out, and if you are directly posting recs rather than a link to your journal, please put them behind a cut tag with the fandoms listed either outside, or as the cut tag text. If the flood becomes overwhelming, we'll switch to the masterpost structure.
