INSTANT REC!!! I loved Bucky's pov, the kids sounded real, and I loved all the action and adventuring.


Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality
INSTANT REC!!! I loved the character voices, the plots, and this story kept me guessing. It also took the better part of a week to read the fic.


Teen Wolf

grimm - What I Did On My Summer Vacation
INSTANT REC!!! I loved Stile's character voice and seeing the town from his pov. I liked the slow build and Stile's discovery of magic and learning how to use it.


Star Trek: Original Series

sgamadison - A Beautiful Frienship
I loved the character voices, the plot, and seeing how Jim, Spock, and Leonard interacted was fun.


amalthia: (Farscape)

Crazy_Cat_Lady - Your True Birthright (Was Never a Throne)
I enjoyed the plot, the character voices, and I liked the action/adventure portion of the story.


Etharei - to memory now I can't recall
INSTANT REC!!! I had so much fun reading this story. I loved the character voices, the time travel aspect, seeing Bucky interact with all the other Avengers. I also loved seeing how the Winter Soldier interacted with the Howling Commandos. This was a fun action/adventure story with just enough hurt/comfort and heartbreak over the Winter Soldier's circumstances.


inukagome15 - Walk a Mile in Your Shoes
INSTANT REC!!! This was pure fun. I loved the concept, character voices, and I thought the last battle was funny.

BlackEyedGirl - We Live in Detail
I liked the character voices and had a good time reading the story.



Night's Darkness: The Long Game
INSTANT REC!!! This story sucked me right in. I loved the character voices, the politics, the plot, all the details. My heart broke for Loki and I loved seeing him as King of Asgard. I also loved all the OC's and seeing how Thor handled being stuck on earth. I really hope the author writes a sequel.


proantagonist - Bargaining
INSTANT REC!!! This story is absolutely amazing and had everything I loved! There are few Loki redemption stories of this caliber. Loki's story was heartbreaking and the author does not shy away from all the mistakes Loki and Odin made, or how crazy Loki had become. I loved the use of flashbacks to describe what led up to Loki's choice. I haven't cried this much reading a story in a long time. By now if you haven't already read this story you should go and check it out.


amalthia: Stephanie Brown Batgirl (Stephanie Brown Batgirl)
It took my grandparent asking why I hadn't posted to my LJ/DW in so long for me to realize it's been well over a month since I've posted any recs.

I was distracted by Escapade and going to Texas for a week during Spring Break. Plus I'm learning how to ski this winter. :)
