In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

Гроза
War and Peace || Dolokhov/Anatole
Because OTP and because this is actually an example of my writing in Russian when it comes out well. (I know it came out well because Russian fandom seemed to like it and Russian fandom is very hard to please.) I’m proud of this one, what can I say?

Substitutes
Harry Potter || Remus/Regulus
It’s angsty, but I like the writing here. The paring isn’t exactly a staple of mine, but the slash in general is and the timeperiod is. I also like writing in this style, I think I generally do well in it.

You and Me and All Other People
War and Peace || Dolokhov/Anatole + lots of other parings that come and go
This series a kind of my pet. It’s not really a great example of anything other than, perhaps, the absolute and varied love that I have for this fandom and this paring, in particular. YaMaAOT has the advantage of being the first story in this series.

In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them.

yuletide – And exchange for rare fandoms! Ever wanted to get a fic for that one movie/book/commercial/song/youtube video but never thought you would because hardly anyone even knows it EXISTS not to mention wants to write fanfic for it, not to mention with you favorite character(s)? Well, Yuletide is the place for you where those dreams come true year after year!

shipswap – (Nominations now open, btw). Like Yuletide except for rare parings. These can be parings in rare fandoms or rare parings in large (even huge) fandoms. (The only drawback is that they do have to be super RARE not just unpopular. Eg: Mycroft/John is not rare enough. I checked.)

history_bigbang – a BigBang com. Fan and original fic set in a historic or pseudo-historic (eg: Game of Thrones) timeperiod/setting. I love historic stuff soooo this is great for me. (Also, historic is used loosely, I’m sure you could get something set in the 50s through if you wanted.)

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create...See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser-known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom who maybe aren't well known or appreciated.

Falling From Cloud Nine by innuendos
War and Peace || Anatole/Natasha
As I whine about constantly, it’s hard to find stuff for this fandom, so I get super excited when I do. Either way, this is a wonderful, well-edited video with lovely music depicting a failed but beautiful love story (with one of my fave het parings incidentally lol).

For You Only by LeahMarie624
Once Upon a Time || Hook and Bae
So Hook/Bae (termed Hookfire by fandom) is kind of a slowly developing (ok, not so slowly) paring love of mine. This video is, it seems, meant to be more gen than slash, but I love it for the music and the emotional under- and overtones.

A Thousand Years by Legendary Dreamer ♥missjessieban♥
Downton Abbey || Tom/Sybil
I really love this paring. It’s one of the few Downton parings I really ‘ship. I love both of these characters, especially Sybil. There are some nice vids for this paring out there but this is the one of those I love the best. It’s a tad long but it features some of the best moments between these two.
