Oh when the Recs go marching in

Friendly neighbourhood rec'er #3 here (Cirocco). So the other two rec'ers are fandom butterflies, so I'm the old fic-married... um... what do young butterflies turn into when they get old and married?

Dead butterflies, I guess. So much for that analogy.

I'm mostly all L&O, all the time. Mostly Mothership, but I'm familiar enough with SVU that I can enjoy a good story there too. And although I have yet to actually watch one single episode of L&O:CI, I've read so much CI fic that I feel I know the characters. Probably won't be doing too much rec'ing of it though, since I can't tell if the characterizations are true to the show. I also still read the occasional X-Files (my first fan love), and Lord of the Rings parodies.

On to the recs:

  1. I read this one on apocrypha a long time ago, and was pleased to see that it contained both an actual case and Rey Curtis, my favourite character. Two rather rare things in L&O fanfic. Recently angilbas put it up on Here it is:

    King's Basket, by angilbas.

  2. I may have herniated something reading these Lord of the Rings diaries by Cassandra Claire. Why? Well, here's a sample, from the Very Secret Diary of Legolas, son of Weemus:

    Day One: Went to Council of Elrond. Was prettiest person there. Agreed to follow some tiny little man to Mordor to throw ring into volcano. Very important mission - gold ring so tacky.

    Here they are in all their glory: diaries for
    Aragorn son of Arathorn
    Legolas Son of Weemus
    Boromir of Gondor
    Frodo Baggins
    Samwise Gamgee
    Gandalf the Grey
    Peregrine Took
    Saruman the White
    Gimli son of Gloin
    Meriadoc Brandybuck
    Ring Wraith No. 5
    Arwen Undomiel

    The author suggests reading them in the order they were written, and I would agree. Here's the Secret Diary page, in case you want to bookmark it.
