A compilation of recs for a baker's dozen of various book canons from Yuletide 2013: from swords and sorcery to urban fantasy, from supernatural Victorian mystery to full-on magic, quest and romance and beyond, all readable with or without respective canon knowledge. In other words, a good way to while away the evening immersed in a swashbuckling armchair adventure.

A selection of recs from Yuletide season 2014 (compiled while the works were still anonymous): one rec for every fandom listed, one fandom listed for every letter of the English alphabet. A vast selection of canons, from space opera to classical vampires, from whodunits to comics to theatre, swashbuckling adventures, meta and metaphors.

First year I've ever not read all the fics that interested me before the authors were revealed.  However, I've been rather busier than usual this year, so that affected things.  On the other hand, I opened all the fics I wanted to read in tabs before the reveal and then didn't shut down my computer for a couple of days so that I could read them with the "Anonymous" labels still there.  Here are all my recs, without the author labels.  (I compile this post as I go along, and it's late and I'm not going to go back and open all the fics again to find the author names.)

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 )

We've been doing consolidated recs posts over on LJ (here is the most recent), but I was wondering if there is any interest in having recs posts over here on Dreamwidth, since many of us regard this as our journaling home.

Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 35

Should we post recs on this community, and if so, how?

Yuck, recs, I don't want them anywhere

My opinion can not be constrained by your radio buttons, so I am commenting.
4 (11.4%)

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.
