Mod Post: Friending Meme!  
Happy 2016, het_reccers! We're thrilled to be kicking off another year of fandom flails, creative challenges, and—of course—the best het fic that the Internet has to offer. Our love and thanks to everyone who makes this community as great as it is!


And we'd like to start the new year by opening up a friending meme! Feel free to share as much information as you're comfortable with in the comment section below and to start new conversations with your fellow reccers. (Tumblr followers, you can participate by reblogging and commenting on this post, or just feel free to hop over to LJ-land!)


Here are a few prompts to get the chatter going...just copy/paste these fields, or any others you want to add, into your comment and join the fun!

Current OTP: *small voice* I don’t have one. I like some couple more than others, of course, but generally I’m happy with any shipping an author makes sense of.
First Fandom: Peter Pan, but that was more than 10 years ago and largely left behind. Current ones are perhaps more interesting? Then it’s Doctor Who, Penny Dreadful and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.
Favorite crossover ship: Don’t have one either, I’m afraid.
How did you find het_reccers? Various friends on my f-list is members, so through them.
What's your New Year's Resolution for 2016? Don’t make them...
Name one fandom thing you're excited for this year: I did Yuletide for the first time last year and I'm already looking forward to it again.
Katherine Joy Summersstars_inthe_sky on January 18th, 2016 11:36 pm (UTC)
This was my first Yuletide exchange, too! It was a little strange at times (I of course got matched on my last-choice fandom), but I ended up writing something I was really pleased with, and I got a couple of just beautiful gifts to boot. How was your experience?

What did you think of the Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie? I'm completely unfamiliar with the TV show (and had in fact only even heard of it thanks to crack_van), but it was a fun and pretty couple of hours (...even if there were like no quotable one-liners to leave with).

What's your New Year's Resolution for 2016? To try a new makeup tutorial every week.
Name one fandom thing you're excited for this year: Playing in new Star Wars fandom
Katherine Joy Summersstars_inthe_sky on January 18th, 2016 11:40 pm (UTC)
New Star Wars fandom has been such a delight, and Tumblr's been a goldmine for meta and headcanons, if you're into that. But please rec some Han/Leia stuff—it's as if a need has been, uh, awakened in me, but there's SO MUCH out there that I don't even know where to start combing through for the good stuff...

Ohh, rec us some Philinda! I believe they're one of very few pairings that made it to the community banner/header but that we're without recs for. (Actually, I'm seeing now that there are no May recs, period. We should remedy this in 2016, especially if there are any crossovers of that nature to be had!)

Name one fandom thing you're excited for this year: I'm just about to run a Doctor Who Minor Characters ficathon for the second time, so I'm excited for that just now. (dw_guestfest).

We're going to run a manifesto challenge in a month or two on the comm here, which I'm really hoping is going to help me finish up the half-written ship manifesto I have sitting around on my laptop as well...

What's your New Year's Resolution for 2016? I'm turning 30 so I really need to start acting like a mature adult but I don't think that's ever going to happen. And possibly get a tattoo.

Username/URL on other sites: royalmilktea on AO3 and FF.net (not that I have anything posted but I do have a short piece in beta!), candiedsumire on tumblr

Location: Colorado, USA

Current OTP: I try to never have just one. I have to keep juggling a few so that when I scrape the bottom of one barrel I have a few more to turn to. Right now I am sifting through Jamie/Brienne, Booth/Bones and Sam/Jack most thoroughly but I have at least six others I check in to from time to time. (Note, I have barely watched two of those shows and yet can rattle of history and plot lines like a pro, fanfic opens whole new worlds! ^_~)

First Fandom: Fandom? Like as in I was in contact with other fans? Sailor Moon I guess or maybe X-Files. If just squealing and replaying things until the tape wore out, Scarecrow and Mrs. King or Star Wars probably.

Favorite crossover ship: I haven't found one that sticks with me.

How did you find het_reccers? I think through a Google search a few years back... Maybe for Inuyasha...

What's your New Year's Resolution for 2016? My word of the year is effervescent, still working on the rest.

Name one fandom thing you're excited for this year: I cannot choose just one. The next one would be X-Files though.
