H/D Erised  
For those of you who may have missed it--which frankly seems miraculous to me, but you never know--hd_erised recently concluded posting. As always, it was a wonderful fest filled with some truly sexy, moving, hilarious, and astonishing fics and works of art. I cannot say enough about the amazing submissions and the fabulous people who created them, but I urge you all to take a look through the anonymous masterlist and see what's on offer. Don't forget to leave a comment and let our hard-working creators know how much you value and appreciate their work. I know December is hectic time of year, both in fandom, and in real life, but if you're a H/D fan and you have some fanfic reading time to spare, I highly recommend starting with a fic from hd_erised. You won't be disappointed!

For those of you who have been reading along--you're amazing! But I would also urge you to consider reccing a favorite or two from the fest. With over 35 fics to choose from, picking a place to start can be daunting, and some readers may choose to stick with shorter pieces or other fests entirely. Seeing a fic or two recced from Erised could encourage people on your f-list to give your favorite a try, which is always awesome! Recs have been down this year compared to Erised's past, and I'd love to see some more recs before reveals go up on January 9th.

Such a great fest! I want to make a rec list but:

a. feel like a lot of the fics I really LOVED have been recced everywhere already, you know?

b. haven't finished reading all the stories yet (yikes!) and might miss something... gah, what to do?

LOL nevermind just made a list anyway. Gonna get it up in a couple of days.

Also, for the guessing poll the only one I have an inkling about is who wrote mine and the art pieces... not sure if only a few guesses can be submitted, especially since I haven't read every fic yet!

just butting in for a quick moment (sorry) but I wanted to say a little something about (a)

Even if something has already been recced you should recc it anyway!! The daily_snitch does hot recs fro those things that are recced multiple times. For gen and most pairings it only takes 2 recs, but for h/d and a few other popular pairings it takes 3 recs to qualify for a hot rec! So please even if something has been recced it's completely great to recc it again and again!!

LOL, yay!!!

I am all about the recs, and honestly, the more the better! I've heard a few people comment about not wanting to rec because they've already seen a lot of their favs recced. But the more I see something recced, the more likely I am to read it!

And yes, you totally don't have to fill in a guess for every single thing. Most people don't try and guess everything--it's so hard! :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 3rd, 2017 08:58 pm (UTC)
I so hope people are encouraged to rec more before reveals!

Same! I've already seen some recs go up since I wrote/scheduled this post though, which is very exciting! :D
