amalthia: (MLP Rainbow Dash)
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
