Reader Recs 2016 on our LJ
The lovely Sunalso has started a thread on LJ where you can list and link to stories that captured your attention that were either written or updated in 2016.
This is NOT an award or "best of" type of listing just a recommendation from reader to reader.
It is suggested that you post your recommendations (as a comment to the original post) based on genre (examples would be All human, Dark fic, Fluffy fic, Hot fic and so on).
The link to the original post is here:
Also on the EF LJ site:
NMCIL has suggested we start a thread there with links to other sites that are still active. Lots of old archives and writers websites are disappearing and the wayback machine doesn't always get us to those "lost" treasures. This would be a way to find older stories that might be lost to the ages otherwise. Looking for WORKING inks for this one and anyone who wishes to...

HAPPY HOLIDAYS ~ All of 'em
This time of year I usually feature holiday stories in the Featured Stories box.
Since we are currently featuring AO stories in honor of the hot days of summer in the southern hemisphere and I really don't want to cheat anyone of the chance to read some wonderful AO fic I found myself in a dilemma. Fear not and hurrah, I have stumbled upon a solution!!!
As of midnight tonight site time one of the current features (the very worthy but really dark Saving Grace by DreamsofSpike) will be retired early. This is NOT because it is not as worth your time and attention as the others but with the author no longer being active in our fandom I thought her less likely to feel slighted if I chose her story for this purpose.
In the available slot there will be DAILY features of holiday stories from the 16th through (and including) the 25th.
So KEEP LOOKING AT THE FEATURES FOR THE DAILY RECOMMENDED HOLIDAY TALE!!!! And...
