Blather: Haha, I swear this place is not dead. I just! God, school, work, everything. But now that I have a huuuuge project due, no better thing to do than buckle down REC THINGS. Mostly art here, mostly going through my DA faves and looking for things that don't get enough attention. So for this post, I tried to stick to things that didn't have many faves/comments already but deserved so many more. I ended up getting a whole other post of the idea, so next time I shirk my work, expect more in this vein.

Blather: This place is BACK FROM THE DEAD. I started writing a REALLY LONG rec post (111 recs!) on a specific theme and then I realized that that was CRAZY and so I now have rec fodder for the next several weeks on the same fantabulous theme: fandoms you know, fanworks you don't.

The next set of posts (this one and two more) will be dedicated to reccing fanworks from well-known fandoms that just somewhow slipped under the radar despite being awesome. So hopefully, this should be a ncie treat. Mixed in will be recs from lesser-known fandoms, and lesser-known works by well-known people but overall the next few posts should consist mostly of awesome, little-known stuff. Well, the art at least -- it's hard to judge the popularity of other types of fanworks, but I will try!

Blather: I am slowly catching up. Avatar fandom feature is almost done, thank god. Mostly I'm hung up of fics. But I will be VALIANT and continue to STRIVE and hopefully that baby will be out of here tomorrow and I'll be BACK ON SCHEDULE. God, I didn't know having tonsillitis for a month would put me behind. SILLY ME.

Anyway, Happy Halloween! I'm lame and don't really do themed posts but I tried to sneak in a few tributes here and there. Like having a veritable BEAST-FEST in the Disney section. Honestly, I just went looking for a Beast rec on a whim, cause I thought it was appropriate (and I already had Nightmare Before Christmas represented via Kingdom Hearts) and then I COULDN'T PICK ONE. Also, the miscellaneous section is DOMINATED by cosplay. Anyway, hope you were/are safe out there =D

Blather: Wow, I am so sorry for this issue being a week late! I'll try and squeeze in another short issue this week, too, to make up for it before I plunge into my first fandom feature. I also have to apologize for the unusually high concentration of CRACK in this entry. Blame it on lingering symptoms of tonsillitis =P

Blather: Forgive me, but this week's One Piece chapter was very emotional. The entire fandom was terribly stirred by it, so I can't help but include a lot of One Piece this issue. No One Piece chapter next week, so more of the other fandoms should pop up again. For now, I've included subtle tributes to Chapter 430 and events in other recent chapters. I won't mention more in my squee, but those who have read the chapters should recognize the tributes, I hope.

Also please forgive me for being late -- I am sick with the plague of death, perfectly timed to coincide with the debut of my reccing jorunal XD

So, I've been meaning to get back into this reccing business for a while, but, you know, doing it right this time. Or at least doing it well, in a way that's fun for me and helpful and enjoyable for others.

So here we are. I debated a while over how to start. I wanted to give people an idea of the breadth of my reccing interests and kind of give them an idea of what to expect in the future. What I decided to do is have a kind of sampler the first time around. So!

This is a sampler! I'm trying to give you an at-a-glance idea of my reccing habits. I will be reccing regularly from every fandom listed that has two recs. Some fandoms I rec a LOT and those got three recs because I couldn't decide. These fandoms I actively seek out the good stuff in. I also come across stuff I love from a whole bunch of other fandoms I like but don't actively root around in, and those are my "Guest Stars". At least, that's how it's working in the Fan Art section. The fic, vid, and misc sections are more or less as they appear every issue. But the art section should let you know my fandom habits. Check out my info or intro post to see the lists of fandoms.

As far as regular operating procedure: I hope to do a weekly rec post, although I hesitate to set a particular day. It should average out to weekly and should happen sometime around weekends -- the Friday-Monday range. Actual content should be something like the following:
» 2 fics (1 if it's REALLY LONG, 3-4 if short)
» 5-10 art
» 2-3 vids
» 1-3 miscellaneous (comics, doujins, flash movies, cosplay, especially awesome meta, plushies, FSTs, icons, whatever else is fannish and not in the other categories)

The idea is to keep the posts on the medium-small side, so that the individual recs don't get lost in the morass.

I also deliberately tried to include a couple of links that are labelled with icons (see the Legend) so that people could see straight off how that business works.

Finally, I will also do a Fandom Feature once a month, where I do an entire post devoted to a particular fandom. It's also probably the only time I'll include links to entire galleries/archives. Usually I link to individual pieces, but in Fandom Features I'll provide links to people who consistently put out the good stuff. At the moment, the fandom rotation is in alphabetical ordr. Learn more at the FAQ.

And so, we begin!
