Last March I recommended Death Note
fanfics and fan videos on crack_van
, and also wrote an overview of the fandom
(although I see that post is now mysteriously missing its pictures... I'll have to see what I can do to get the overview pictures restored).
Well, my name is coming to the forefront of the list
and it looks like I'll be reccing Death Note
again starting this November. Only one month away! I'm excited and mostly ready. I had more fanfic recommendations last time that was allowed, so I've got a bunch left over.
However, I still need your help. I am not very familiar with Death Note
crossover fanfics and I don't have any recs planned so far! I really want to rec a few good crossovers (crossovers do not count towards the 12-rec limit) and I've poked around looking for them, but I haven't found them!
I could also use some help unearthing a few more Death Note
fanvids, as I'm sparse on those too.
Plus, even though I'm pretty sure I won't have trouble filling up my allotment of 12 regular Death Note
fanfics, I could always use some more recs in that area. If there's something great that meets the requirements of crack_van
and I think it's better than some other fic I've currently got on my list of planned recs, I can bump that other fic off my list to make room for the better one.
What are the requirements? I can't self-rec (obviously!), I can't rec fanworks that have already been recced on crack_van
and I can't rec works in progress. So, this means that excellent but unfinished fanfics (such as True Elision by Ezan
) are not allowed.
As to my personal aims, I'm trying to go for a mix of ships, styles and tastes, just like the last time I recced.
Last time, I tried to divide my attention between popular authors and little-known authors, between genfics and shipping fics, and I tried to make sure that the popular pairings didn't get all the attention amongst the shipping fics. In other words, even though any goodfic you can recommend to me is appreciated, the types of fics that tend to get neglected or overlooked in the fandom are appreciated even more.
If you've got suggestions, please put them in the comments. PMs are okay too, but I prefer comments because it organizes them all in one place and because then, even if I don't use your suggestion, you are still reccing in a way that all my readers can find, so it's still doing good.
