Fan Fiction II: Great story! Where's the sequel?

This thread is for fanfic recs, links, and discussion, but not for actual posting of fanfic.

See? I gave everybody here an opportunity to tell me what a bad person I am and nobody did, because I fuckin' rule.

Wee adorable little drabble of a ficlet in the form of a script for the extended version of the co-captain scene (Not mine, just one I found, but it's so good and delightful! Mine is, uh, about 90,000 times longer).

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

I love Fic Pon Farr. Congratulations! (off to read)

Ergh. I wrote a thing, and posted it!

Cats to become a rabbit should gather immediately now here

I love it! It is really the first time I have read anything by someone I “know” so well through the written word (I have read Dana and FayJay and such, but I read them sort of simultaneously with getting to know them). It is so interesting how I hear JZ so clearly.

In the end it's only ever been one step, and then the next.

Damn it, wee JZ, now I am crying.

... I'm sorry?

It feels like the audience for this thing is very limited, so if you know any of them, please share it because I don't know how else they'll find it.

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

I did post about it on Tumblr, for whatever my small audience is worth.

Thank you! And now I'm thinking about how Oluwande and Jim met, which is both interesting and scary because it involves two people whose life experiences and POVs are very different from mine--it was easy writing about bullied kids constantly drowning in shame over how disappointing and wrong they are. Super easy to fuck up in so many ways.

TYSM, Dana! I know I'm incredibly late and all but I'm trying to be a good citizen and read and comment and recommend as much as I can without derailing my actual work and stuff.
