FanFic Friday: What we’re reading

Happy Friday! Today, the whole FanFic Friday team is sharing what we’ve been reading—fic, books, newspapers… I kid, I kid, no one reads newspapers anymore. Annie and I used to do these types of posts in those first dark days of my fic break; we thought it would be fun to bring the feature back (cue Annie saying “the feature’s dead Angela”) and have the whole team tell you what they’ve been reading over the past few weeks [Annie: *swinging earbuds* I need your playlists]. These aren’t necessarily reccs but you will most likely find something new to check out! I’ll go first. 🙂

Read the rest, after the jump!

FanFic Friday: Happy Ho Ho Holidays Fics!

Happy Day before Christmas Eve! Welcome to FanFic Friday – Holiday EditionAnnie and I are bringing you a long list of seasonally-themed fic – both the nice and naughty. 😉

First up, a short and sweet story rec from Annie. Merry Textmas by DiamondHeart78

Bella is forced to tackle the crowds on Black Friday with her best friend, Angela. Can a random text message from a wrong number change the course of her day and her life? Banter galore! AH. VOTER’S CHOICE WINNER for the Naughty & Nice Holiday Contest!

From Annie: This was a happy discovery. Can a wrong number text lead to love? Read and see! It’s short (5 chapters), funny and very sexy. (From Deb – oooh it can be a reward for finishing your shopping! Sounds good.)

Lots more fic “presents” under the tree… I mean, after the jump!

Fanfic Friday: It’s a Free for All! Annie and I share what we’ve been reading

Welcome back and a happy Friday to you.

Today is extra special. I’m so excited to introduce you to my twitter bestie, and human fic library, Annie!! *throws confetti* We’re going to share what we’ve been reading this week and then we want to hear from YOU! Yeah, it’s a FREE FOR ALL FRIDAY!

My fic reading has been all over the place this week. I’ve been reading some of the entries in the TwiKinkFest (I’m putting a extreme perv warning on that link. No joke, they mean “kink”. Proceed with caution if easily offended. For the adventurous, there be kinky fun in there.) I’m still loving the daily updates of  last week’s rec, Transcendence and today’s surprise Love in my Box Outtake.

I’ve got a very funny complete rec this week. Annie’s been reading a lot too and has two very new WIPs to share. Join us, and get last week’s poll results, after the jump!

FanFic Friday: We’re talking drabbles: Short and sweet or ‘Where’s the meat?’

UPDATE: I don’t know what I was thinking posting the day Breaking Dawn came out! LOL So here we go again…. New post next week. 🙂

Happy Friday all. Hope you all had a great week and will be seeing Breaking Dawn this weekend, if you haven’t already.

Today, instead of a straightforward story rec, I wanted to talk about a trend in fanfiction. You might recall that some of the “classic” fics were kind of epic; they have 50+ chaps and weigh in with word counts in the hundreds of thousands. They’re a real time investment but the good ones wrap you up in a world for days or weeks even. That can be great, if that’s what you’re in the mood for…

Sometimes a girl just needs a quickie, right?

So, drabbles. Well, something like drabbles. As with all things fic, authors have interpreted, reinvented and generally just run ripshod over the term. I love that. I, personally, tend to prefer shorter stories. I enjoy the economy of words and the near poetic way these stories read. They also appeal to my love of words; when an author is packing so much story into a few words each one has to convey a lot. Often, the author has written the whole story first and then posts in a unique way. The absolute best example of this is The Plan by Quantum Fizzx.

How many recs this week? Read on. More short and sweet (and not so sweet) after the jump.
