Per [livejournal.com profile] snickfic:

“And now, to complement the self-reccing meme, a meme for reccing things made by other people!”

The Days:
1. Something old
2. Something new
3. Something for your fav character/pairing
4.

Something for a character you don’t like / pairing you don’t ship:

This is a seriously difficult one to answer because a) as I said before, I’m not much for pairings per se anyhow — and certainly don’t pick stories based on any such criteria — and b) I don’t dislike many characters that much, not even enough to avoid reading something featuring them.

One potential avenue here might be slash: I dislike pretty much all slash, so something would have to be really good to overcome my preferences there. On that basis, just about the only possibility that comes to my mind would be “the Way, Way Back”, by Liz Estrada. Quality fic with good plotting, good descriptions, and many good moments …

… However, I believe I’ll go a different direction with this one. “Telling Porkies”, by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy, is silly, fun, unexpected, and unexpectedly entertaining. More to the point, it meets the standard of the question by centering on a ‘character’ (Mister Gordo) about whom I would never have considered the possibility of seeing a good story. Who would have believed an apocalypse could be fluffy and snuggly?

Read and see.

5. Something that’s underappreciated by the universe
6. Something that’s a gateway drug
7. Something you reread/rewatch/look at again

We are a small, select group with very weird tastes. Just looking out for a fellow spirit.

Telling Porkies was definitely a fic highlight of last year. As you say, it was unexpected and very entertaining and just seeing it mentioned here makes me want to go read it again just for the hell of it.

I don’t really think of it as a great story, but it was thoroughly successful in that it hit its mark dead center. It was fun to read, fun to re-read, fun to remember.
