I did a reccing project for [community profile] ladiesbigbang that might be relevant to some of y'all's interests; it ended up clocking in at 160 fic recs in 74 fandoms, featuring 207 awesome women.

The whole shebang can be found at [community profile] notwellbehaved, but I'd recommend starting at the tags page. I tagged each rec with fandom, pairing/threesome/whatever, completed or wip, and content warnings (from "abuse" to "zombies").

There's gen, het, femslash, and poly (threesomes and vees), happy endings and character studies and apocalypses, original characters and minor characters and iconic badasses. A little bit of everything I love, basically.

I just read the most awesome St. Trinian's fic and figured I'd shared it here, and then I figured that hey, since I was gonna rec anyways, I'd share a few other fics from other fandoms that I just love as well.

3 fics: St. Trinian's, Star Trek Movie, and Gilmore Girls )

Hey guys! I'm in the middle of re-watching Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and I got a sudden hankering for fics about Elizabeth Swann. I've never been hugely involved in the fandom, and only got involved a few years after the third movie was released.

So I was hoping you guys could rec me all of your favorite fics that are Elizabeth-centric. Any era would be awesome, since I've seen all of the films (though I haven't read the Jack Sparrow books yet). I'd prefer something plotty, maybe an adventure, or mystery, or horror fic? I don't mind which pairing she's in, if any.

Thanks in advance, guys?

Mods, if this isn't okay, feel free to delete it.

There's a story I recently read in Fullmetal Alchemist, which explores the backstory of a minor female character who so far has been in a whopping two scenes in the anime. I'm hoping to see more of her in the manga because... somehow she's become one of the most interesting characters on the show for me, and that story had some part in it.

gen; PG-13; Characters: Madam Christmas; Roy Mustang (aged four), Grumman; ~3,500
Warnings: gangsters, innuendo, sleaze, dominoes and a lot of jazz age slang. No spoilers except for Madam Christmas's character and her connection with Mustang.
Summary: Twenty-five years ago ... Chris Mustang is having a very bad month. The censors killed her show, she's in debt to a couple of very dubious businessmen, and she's working as a hostess in the worst bar in town. As if that wasn't enough, her estranged big brother seems to have gotten himself in an auto accident, and some nut decided to make her guardian of his four year old brat.

In a way that story reminds me of [personal profile] rheanna's Gaila&Uhura friendship fic, which also takes a character who has only a few minutes of screentime and makes her a three-dimensional and fascinating character who I can't wait to see more of. (This was rec'd all over the place but it can't hurt to rec it again...)
Lunch and Other Obscenities
gen; PG-13; 9,786 words
Summary: Nyota liked her roommate just fine until she met her.
A fantastic, well-rounded story about culture clashes, friendship, and linguistics. Uhura and Gaila friendship, with a hint at Spock/Uhura.
iamshadow: Still from Iron Man of Tony Stark blacksmithing. (TARDIS)

Because there's been a lot of River!hate going on, I felt that I should dust off this fic and show it off. Why? Because River is awesome, and there's too much hating of female characters by women in fandom.

Title: Children of Time
Author: [personal profile] iamshadow
Fandom: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Pairings: Gen, River Song, Jack, Ten, with maybe a smidgen of pre River/Ten
Rating: G
Word Count: 1,523
Summary: She’s born into a family that’s half what it used to be but still struggling to carry on, like a lightning-split tree.
Warnings: Refers to stuff from Doctor Who Season One Eps 9 and 10(The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances), Season Four Eps 8 and 9(Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead) and Torchwood Season Two Ep 5(Adam).
A/N: Have you noticed that many, many, many Who 'verse episodes are set in the 51st century? Just me, then? Oh well, carry on.

I posted this in [community profile] list50 toda. It's a list of 50 of my favourite fanfics starring women. Gen, het, femslash, some stuff that has warnings. Fandoms: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Merlin, The X-Files, Stargate: SG-1, Stargate: Atlantis.

Almost all of these are probably fairly short, between 1,000 and 3,000 words, since my attention span is really bad I tend to read fic under 5,000 words only.

Because women rock )
