Mod Post: Special Reccers, We Need YOU!  
First things first—a huge round of applause for our reccer for November lanalucy, who recced a huge variety of fics and fandoms over the past month! Awesome job!

Next up, please welcome eliviralikespie as our special reccer for December!

Finally: WE NEED NEW SPECIAL RECCERS! We currently don't have anybody signed up after next month, which means that starting in January we are special reccer-less.

Who are our special reccers? They are brave souls who take on the challenge on making at least 20 recs in 5 different fandoms over the course of a month (although more recs and more diversity is always appreciated!). We have a single special reccer each month. Months are assigned on a first come, first served basis. And that's it!

If you're up for the challenge, you can sign up one of two different ways. In both cases, we’ll confirm your month, and then notify you again a week or two in advance to remind you of your signup when the time comes:

  • If you're on LJ, just leave a comment on this post.

  • On Tumblr, you can sign up by sending a message to the het_reccers ask box, and all recs can be shared through tumblr submissions.

It'd be a shame to see this tradition die out - PLEASE consider signing up for a month, if you can!

I enjoyed my month last time - I'll take another. February 2016, please?

Awesome! And you've got it - you're signed up to be the special reccer for February 2016.

You already know this but... this is your official reminder that you're signed up to be the special reccer for February. :)

A few quick notes: please add a field to all your recs during February that says "Special Rec: number of x" (for example, to start out - "Special Rec: 1 of 20" or "Special Rec: 1 of 31", or however many stories you are planning to rec during the month). And feel free to use your currently existing special reccer tag, of course!

Thanks, and have fun!

It was a little overwhelming at first, but it went well. I enjoyed it. :D

SO many BSG recs, though! That was, to borrow a phrase, SHINY :D

I love BSG! It's my home-fandom, so to speak, and many of the more recent stories haven't been recced, because the fandom is fairly low activity now.

Glad you enjoyed the recs!

Oh boy, ok, let's just jump in with both feet. I have been lurking around this place for a while now, and have found some amazing stories because of it. I always mean to contribute, and then never get around to it. So let's give it a go, in for a penny, in for a pound. If you don't have anyone yet, I'll take January.

Ack, I'm so sorry for responding to this late - it slipped my notice! We'd love to have you as a special reccer. :) We've had enough signups that the first half of the year is now booked up... would you be interested in being the special reccer for September 2016? Let me know!
