Meme snagged from Tumblr:
In a text post, list ten FICS that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!

This somehow ended up being a sort of “Long IMPORTANT Fics” list, except when it’s instead a “Long RIDICULOUSLY IDDY Fics” list. I think if I want to make a list that has any one-shots in it at all, I’m going to have to make it an all-one-shots list to begin with. Sigh.

Should note that these are not all unqualified recs, just stuff that has stuck with me. Also, I totally broke that “don’t take but a few minutes” rule.

  • Red - SPN, gen, broke my brain and put it back together and completely reshaped my idea of what fanfiction could be.

  • Let Not the Sun Go Down - SPN RPF, werecats and mpreg and body identity stuff. My id, let me show you it.

  • Res Gestae - SPN, Wincest, plotty sex swap with pregnancy. I read this fic before I even saw the show because it promised me mpreg. Something about the angst and circumstances have always stuck with me, especially since I AM DUMB and did not see the twist coming.

  • Crow on the Cradle - SPN, nominally Sam/Jess but mostly Jess gen in which Sam goes missing pre-pilot and Jess ends up tagging along with the Winchesters to look for him. This is kroki_refur, possibly my single favorite SPN author, and this is I think the very first fic of hers I read and one that ruined me for all later Jess fic. It’s haunting and dark and heartbreaking and LONG and so, so good.

  • Love’s The Burning Girl - Trek RPF, Zoe Saldana gets tired of the acting life and goes into directing. I find Zoe’s journey of self-discovery and following her ambitions just so hopeful.

  • Lunch and Other Obscenities - Star Trek Reboot, Uhura and her roommate Gaila make some cultural accommodations. Girl friendship yay, but also it does something more successfully than any pro SFF I’ve read ever has: shows what it might actually be like in a society where all the taboos are centered on something other than sex. (IDK how Zoe Saldana features twice on this list; I was never even in Star Trek Reboot fandom.)

  • Daemons Luminati - BtVS, S6 AU in which Spike gets raped by angels?? I’ve read this fic multiple times and was never quite sure exactly what I was reading, and I honestly have even less an idea now as time has gone on and I’ve gotten some more perspective on it, but it’s nonetheless IMO one of the true classics of Buffy fandom.

  • Kindred Spirits - BtVS, the Dawn/Ethan fic so good that everyone apparently decided there didn’t need to be any more. Also the best exploration of Dawn herself and of the implications of the Key that I have ever seen. Honestly half of this list could be nwhepcat; she was a formative fannish influence for me.

  • Fastening Your One Heart to Every Falling Thing - hockey RPF, the soulbonding fic with no soulbonding in it. Also the reason I am in hockey fandom and, by extension I guess, everyone I’ve dragged into it with me.

  • Never Hard to Find - hockey RPF, Sid/Geno. I originally saw this recced as The One With the Ficus Plant, and by gum they were not wrong. This is also a story about two people being reeeally bad at communicating with each other and themselves in a way that doesn’t drive me crazy. But mostly: ficus.


Not listed: the rapey dystopian J2 mpreg fic that was the final nudge that got me to start watching SPN back in 2011. I am never admitting to that one in public.
