Day 13

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

[fanvid] Glad You Came by lillykid - fast and the furious series - several pairings - this vid is a bit tricky, because while it's partly a happy and excited vid about the franchise and the characters and their relationships, it's also something of a eulogy/tribue for Paul Walker (the blond dude - he died while the seventh movie was still being filmed). And while that's not bad, it also hurts, in a way that is more close to home than most fanworks, and more than I generally like my fanworks to get. But at the same time, it's such a loving tribute and such a wonderfully happy vid that I keep coming back.

[podfic] I came to win by exmanhater (from a fic by philyra) - MCU Hockey!AU - gen - this is just so great you guys. so very great. exmanhater is, of course, glorious - her reading is clear and hits all the best emotional notes and her pepper you guys HER PEPPER! so great. so great. the story is great and the plot is infuriating and will make you want to watch all the women's hockey. so great. so great.

[podfic] brothers in arms by reenajenkins (from a fic by copperbadge) - MCU - gen - look guys. it's reenajenkins and robots. and bucky and robots. and robots and robots. I am weak to all these things. also, all these things are great. so great.

[fanfic] Come Away to the Water by leobrat - spartacus - naevia-centric - ok so I'm in the midst of podficcing this so it's eaten my brain a bit but it's just - at its best, or at least what I remember of its best, spartacus had a lot of weight to it. not that it tackled weighty subjects, though it did, but, between the dialogue and the cinematography, it sometimes felt like it edged towards the mildly fantastical (how much blood fit in that body?!). And that made sense in context, but can be a hard act to follow, fandom-wise. But this fic - this fic feels like every word has weight, and every word has an intention, and every word was placed there, very carefully. That makes recording it really, really hard, but reading it is really, really satisfying.

[fanfic] mixtape series by verity - MCU - several pairings - this is just a really, really fun read. It's fun, not over the top, and feels like saying hi to your best friend after a long day.
