RECCING SIGN-UP POST


so, for this comm to get in order, what we need are reccers!

this is the post where you sign up for the fandom (or large ship within a fandom) you're interested in reccing for. at the moment we're looking for recs just for the month of august, with one person per fandom/ship. (please don't worry if the fandom/ship you're interested in is taken! with enough activity we will definitely host more rounds.)

the way this will go is that once you have a fandom/ship to rec for, you will be assigned a certain day (such as sunday, monday, tuesday.) on the designated day, you will post one fic rec for your fandom.

"underappreciated":
how we define "underappreciated" (as stated in our profile) is:
- any fic with less than 1000 kudos on ao3 - this is a hard rule
- fic that is not in the top 2% of pages for a fandom
- fic not by an author who has a story in the top 1% of pages for a fandom
- fic that has been posted/created for at least a month
- (we will help set these numbers for you so nothing gets lost in translation)
- if you're interested in reccing a specific popular ship for a large fandom, please let us know for that. (e.g. drarry)
- if you're interested in reccing fic from small fandoms, we can discuss adjusting qualifications.
- if you're interested in reccing fic from fanfiction.net, livejournal (not x-posted to ao3), or any other platform, please let us know so we can discuss popularity proportions.

this is the format of the recs:
subject: Title by Author [Rating]

Fandom: your fandom
Title: title with link to the fic. please let us know if you don't know how to make a link on dreamwidth
Pairing/Character Focus: please use full names if possible
Author: ao3 users can be credited with the following code: <user name="main ao3 pseud" site="archiveofourown.org">
What makes this a gem: write a little blurb about why you're reccing this fic in particular! does it have wonderful prose? wonderful themes? (both?) is it a personal favorite? can you not stop thinking about it?

warnings are not required as they are assumed to be appropriately marked by the author
formats inspired by [community profile] crack_van



please leave a comment with the fandom you're interested in reccing for! and yes, we do require a dreamwidth account. but other than that... that's it, and you'll hear from us soon!

Hello!! I'd be interested in reccing for Haikyuu!!
I'm mostly into rarepairs, though, so that might get a bit one-sided from me? Maybe you'll want another person wo reads mainly main/popular ships :0

Is it okay to rec older fics that never made it to AO3? Like, fics that were written well over 15 years ago in a fandom that's still going but has changed so much that a lot of the great classics are kind of being lost? If so, sign me up for Power Rangers -- and I don't care on which day. :-)

i mean, it'll probably be harry/draco, but i have been known to read fics with luna in a pairing so... also i saw your thursdays are free so i would love to sneak in on that day if that's okay!

Could you go over how the posting wrks again?

I'm interested in reccing for Georgette Heyer fandom in general but I don't know if it's too broad a category... what's the modly take on that? there's only 220 completed fics total in the HEYER Georgette - Works tag, so I think it would be hard to narrow it down to just one book.

[personal profile] meretricula 2017-07-27 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
that does leave a wide scope for choices, haha. excellent! I was wondering how to calculate the top 2% out of 220, I admit. and I have to do all the posts before August (going away, potentially sucky internet, etc etc) and queue them anyway, so whatever day works best for you guys -- it makes no difference to me whatsoever.

[personal profile] meretricula 2017-07-27 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
sounds perfect! I shall get to work selecting a mere five of the gems in the Heyer tag. ;)

[personal profile] meretricula 2017-07-27 12:44 pm (UTC)(link)
ok, new question! I've got my recs ready to queue, but I can't post to the comm... how do you want them submitted?
meretricula: (Default)

[personal profile] meretricula 2017-07-27 01:04 pm (UTC)(link)
awesome, thank you! :) just to check -- if I hit post, it will go to a moderation queue, right, it won't just post? I don't want to jump the gun XD

I'd like to sign up for Seventeen? Either Saturday or Sunday is good for me

[personal profile] azulina 2017-07-30 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
Sorry, I just have a question: What does "not in the top 2% of pages" mean, and where would I find that? Same question with the top 1% for authors.

Thanks!

How do these numbers translate for fandoms that don't have enough stories to have a top 2% or 1%?
argentum_ls: (Default)

[personal profile] argentum_ls 2017-08-14 11:53 pm (UTC)(link)
OK. I'm in a number of fandoms where there's only one or two pages of stories, so either everything is eligible or nothing is.

(Thanks! It's one of my favs too.)
