Mod Post: Manifesto Challenge Round Eight Round-Up!

Given that it's been about three years since this community's last manifesto challenge, we had a GREAT response to the latest round, with nearly a dozen new manifestos and scores of recs for characters, ships, and fandoms galore. Let's have a round of applause for everyone who joined in the fun!


If you didn't have a chance to join this challenge, don't worry about it—het_reccers is always open for manifesto posting! All you need is a subject and a few favorite stories. Check out the guidelines here for more.

And here are our Round Eight manifestos—all of them have been added to the community's Manifesto Master List! Thanks again to all the contributors!

Why This Must Be Read: It's hilarious! The summary is: "Sam switches shampoo and suddenly everyone around him is treating him like royalty. These two things may or may not be related. . . ." and that is exactly what happens. It's perfectly in character with great voices in both dialogue and narration. The UST between Dean and Bela is spot on.
