It's been a few years since I've made a favorite fics of the year posts. I thought it was time to start it again. Sorry if my reviews aren't all that great, I try very hard not to give spoilers, and I sometimes hit that point where it's hard to find new ways to say a story is amazing...The stories are listed in no particular order.

Marvel (Avengers, Thor, Iron Man, X-Men, Spider-Man) )
Stargate Atlantis )
Teen Wolf )
Rise of the Guardians )

It's that time of year again where I post my favorite stories and vids of 2011. Not all the stories were posted in 2011 but it's the year I found them for the first time, so it counts in my book. :)

The stories below are listed in no particular order or fandom preference. This year it was again difficult to narrow down my absolute favorites.

I have ebook versions for all the stories listed here (except for Family Matters) if you'd like a mobi/epub version of a story listed here and the author doesn't already have one email me at amalthia at gmail.com and I'll share my copy with you.


Star Trek Reboot, Merlin, Marvel (Avengers, Thor, Iron Man, X-Men), DCU (Batman, Young Justice, Flash), Fullmetal Alchemist, Inception, Vid Recs

The stories below are listed in no particular order or fandom preference. These are my personal favorite fics from the year 2009, as in I've re-read or obsessed about the stories more than normal. Out of the 400-600 fics I've read this year it wasn't easy selecting just under 20 to highlight. My original plan was to do a top five fics per fandom but I actually want to have a life. :) This year there were some truly awesome fics that were shared in multiple of fandoms and I look forward to seeing what the year 2010 brings. :)

I don't normally say much about fics when I do my normal recommendations mostly due to fear of leaving a spoiler but on these ones I wrote a bit more than normal and some fics may have spoilers so read the reviews at your own risk.

Some conclusions )

EDIT: Forgot to say that this is the first year I'm trying this format for my end of the year recs. My format for Favorite Stories 2008 was a list of stories sorted by fandom. The plus side of that method was more stories! But the downside was that I couldn't really talk about why I loved the stories so much.

This year it was rather time consuming to do reviews for each story on the 2009 list so I narrowed my list down even further to get it posted before midnight tonight.

If anyone has an opinion on which type of recs they prefer I'd love to hear your thoughts. I wasn't sure if I should do this again next year, or go back to how I did things in 2008.

In no particular order or fandom preference. Though I did add SGA and SPN last because I really could not narrow down the list to just 5 each. I went through my instant rec tag on my delicious page. And the stories I remembered best I added to this list.

I'm finally home. We left Houston to go to San Angelo, TX on Friday night, stopped in San Antonio spent the night at my mom's and got up the next morning and continued our trip. It was a VERY LONG drive, it took about 7 hours to get there and 7 hours to get back. Luckily, we were able to stop in San Antonio to break up the trip a bit.

Anyways, I had a great time visiting my youngest brother, sister-in-law, and baby niece. She's such a sweetie and doesn't cry nearly as much as she used to.

In other news, I finally updated all my master rec lists on 5/23/08.

Stargate Atlantis

I had to split my Supernatural list into Gen/Het, and Slash.

I'll be getting these updated to IJ as soon as possible.

It was weird not really having internet all weekend.
