Recs are, by their very nature, always subjective but I do think it's interesting to hear what authors think about their own writing.
I don't tend to think too deeply about my own motivations when writing - I think I'm more of an emotional, instinctive sort of writer but this meme was a good nudge in that direction. :-)

Gacked from the always fabulous [livejournal.com profile] xanthelj:~

Rec-Go-Round:
Rec me a story you've written that you're proud of, any genre, here on my LJ.
Then go forth and ask the same in yours.

I have twigs with lights!!!! (g)
As anyone who's been to my home or who has read this lj for a while knows, I love lights - not just at Xmas but all year around. I have them in most rooms of the house but not in the lounge...until now! I went to The Pier yesterday & found these really pretty white-light-encrusted twigs & a gorgeous gold-toned tall glass vase to put them in. So now I have lights in the lounge all year too! (I know - I'm easily pleased.)

On a less pleasing note: my parcel from Deep Discount DVD arrived yesterday & I was so looking forward to Amazing Race season 7. But unfortunately they've sent me A Charlie Brown Christmas. *eye roll* I love Peanuts & in fact already have this dvd - but I want my Phil dammit!
However Serenity arrived safe & sound & we had a very shiny evening watching that. It does make me want to find some good Jayne slash now - with Mal or Simon, I'm not fussy. Any recs, folks?

Oh, anyone who hasn't read [livejournal.com profile] pirate_hussies fabulous War of the Worlds fic (LotR RPS Viggo/Orli, Sean/Eric) do go & check it out - it's now complete!

And a belated but heartfelt 'happy birthday' to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] nieninque121!

Happy birthday, J!!! )

Okay - off for a run now (it's eight weeks until my half-marathon!), will be back to answer email, etc later. :-)

I know I may be a teeny bit biased as her beta but I have to rec this beautiful VigOrli fic by[livejournal.com profile] pirate_hussies.
It is a WiP but she's already posted part 5/7 & it will be completed soon so don't let that put you off from reading it.

War of the Worlds
by Q.H. [livejournal.com profile] pirate_hussies
Fandom: LotR RPS
Pairing: VM/OB plus SB/EB
Summary: An AU inspired by Spielberg's War of the Worlds.

Excerpt:
Viggo reached up and kissed him again, hmm-ing with pleasure as he felt Orlando’s warm fingers creep beneath his shirt and ghost across his ribs to rest over his heart.

Orli snuggled back down, his head next to his hand on Viggo’s chest, one leg wrapped around his lover holding him in place. Viggo sighed and wrapped loving arms around him and pulled him in close.

Orlando’s fingertips were running tiny circles over Viggo’s heart and his eyes were closed as he visibly took comfort from listening to its steady, reassuring beat.

Thank god he still had this.

~*~

And on this special day - happy birthday, Orlando!! ♥

This is all over my flist. :-)

I'm sure that anyone who's ever posted fanfiction to Livejournal will know just how great it feels to read comments from other users (and how depressing it can be if no one comments). I also know that I don't review other people's fanfiction half as much as I really ought to. So to make up for that, on Sunday I'm going to try and post a review for every piece of fanfiction I read on Livejournal (and I plan to read a lot). Why not do the same, and let other writers know their efforts are worth it?

Writers, why not take the opportunity to re-post a story you think slipped under people's radars the first time around?

Copy and paste to your own journal if you intend to take part.


Well, I'm in the process of archiving all of my fic over in my fic journal anyway but thought I'd join in with this noble sentiment.
Feedback is good.
It takes a lot of effort, love & creativity to write something & then a certain amount of bravery to actually post it.
So a little recognition is always nice, even a quick 'hey, I enjoyed that'. :-)

As for re-posting one of my own stories, I don't really know.
I mean all of my fic is available in my memories if people want a look but if I had to single out one for today then I think it would be Scattered Hearts.

Scattered Hearts was the first long VigOrli that I wrote & it was one of the best writing experiences of my life. The words seemed to literally flow onto the page & it was just so much fun. I enjoyed weaving bits of Hidalgo in with my own narrative plus I got to write my favourite thing of all time - virgin!Orli! Not only virgin but 'completely & utterly untouched' Orli...
*guh*
What can I say? It works for me! ;-)

So, if you haven't read it or fancy another look then here it is:~

Scattered Hearts

I have a real fondness for the Harry/Karl pairing & to find it written so well just makes me squee!

If you like gorgeous men, great dialogue, hot sex & a smattering of D/s then check out [livejournal.com profile] darknight999 & [livejournal.com profile] linden_jay's fabulous Good Boy. ♥

*guh*
Just the title hits my buttons!
*melts*

Oh, please remember to leave feedback - it's the fanfic writer's coin of the realm. :-)

There are so many fabulous stories over at [livejournal.com profile] anglicandoorway & I've barely made my way through more than a handful so far.
I'm taking my time & enjoying them, plus making sure I leave feedback! (g)
I don't want to rec any in particular for fear of missing one out that I haven't even read yet! (I know how upsetting that kind of thing can be.)
But...I am going to mention the story that was written for me - I think I'm allowed. (g)
Plus it's absolutely wonderful & everything that I asked for or could've wished for.
It's called 'Coming Clean' by the immensely talented & sweet [livejournal.com profile] willowwing.
Thank you again, sweetheart. ♥
